This is one reason I was never enthusiastic about the S6 or S7, Corning glass? It looks nice but don't drop it! Gorilla glass is fine for me!
Feature wise, the S5 was the prototype for the S6 and S7 and it should cost you less than what you would spend to repair your S7.

Corning makes gorilla glass so gorilla glass is corning glass.

Ok, so your are saing that you don't like gorilla glass 4.
Why do you prefer gorilla glass 3?
GG4 is more shatterproof, isn't it?

They can say what they want, drop both and see which breaks first.

So which GPU is best for 3d gaming?[COLOR="Silver"]

I'm also looking for a budget tablet. But I'm trying to avoid Intel because they use x86 instructions emulating arm, which might cause problems with some games using native code.
Now that intel is out of the android phone market I'm worried that developers will stop devoting resources to make their app's run on intels architecture.

Well, finally pulled the trigger. My package is late, and now due to the weekend it'll be Monday or Tuesday before it arrives and i can begin to figure out if i'm happy with the ASUS slate (Z580C) packing a lowly intel Atom SoC. I have some very basic gaming needs (primarily Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes) and coming from a Kindle Fire HD 7 (3rd gen) it should be a massive upgrade. As you are almost certainly aware, the Android market has been incredibly stagnant. But there's a few new recent additions that would be worth considering. Someone else asked about the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 ($299 USD) which would be worth considering. They claim the Mediatek SoC is actually pretty fast. Had to cut corners somewhere. Also, there's the Huawei MediaPad M3, but that's an 8.4" device, i believe. Unsure if they have a 10" version.

I'm hoping once i get this ZenPad S 8.0 crankin with the Marshmallow 6.0 update that i'll be happy with my upgrade. PLEASE keep us posted if you make a purchase, or which direction you are leaning.

Here's a couple ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 reviews for ya, sir:
http://techtablets.com/asus-zenpad-3s-10/
http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/...ad-3s-10-news/

I spent months trying to convince myself that i shouldn't buy tech that's already a year and a half old, but for a slate that's just a toy for me, it was hard to justify the extra cash. Ended up going with the super budget version, ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 which i picked up for $159.99 online. Paid for expedited shipping, but for whatever reason it sits less than a mile away at the Post Office which i can't access due to the weekend. Uggh. PLEASE keep us posted on what you decide to get. $299 is an incredible value for that new ZenPad 3S 10. My only concerns were the Mediatek SoC, but the reviews seem to be real decent.

Zenpad 3s 10 have a nice CPU with a72 cores but the imagination GX6250 gpu definitely isn't high end. After reading futuremarks mobile device chart I concluded Nvidia shield k1 (scored 3200 in sling shot) offer unrivaled bang for buck (only 150$, 8 inch zenpad with Z3580 only scored 1200 and cost more). So I have decided that top gpu performance is more important than 10 inch screen.

A good replacement for my Moto X2 (2014)

Hi everyone, good afternoon. I want to replace my Moto X2 (2014) smartphone, with a newer one .

Here is the list of items I need with a new phone:

- Android Stock or closer . Or with a interface lag free.
- Android 6.0.1 and with updates to 7 or 8.
- 3.5 mm jack to headphones.
- SD slot
- 32/64 gb internal storage
- Wifi Suport AC (5 Ghz)
- 2 Speakers or a good sound volume.
- A very good camera. Moto X2 is a poor camera. Focus problems.
- Battery >= 3000 mAh.
- 4G / LTE Support.

My options are:
- Moto X Pure Edition (2015)
- Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge (or only S7 ??)
- Any other?

Thanks.

PD: Sorry for my english, I'm from Perú. I speak Spanish.
