I've been looking for a decent tablet, and been eyeing mipad 2 for a while now.

My only question is weather I should go for the windows version or the android version???

And of course which will run smoother/faster will be my first choice... By all means sliding the screens etc.

Any thoughts on this? Would a Motorola X Pure Edition fit the bill?

In some ways. It's a tad smaller up and down, but it's thicker and actually heavier (by a gram, no biggie). Screen is same size. Whether you get the 16, 32, or 64gb version you can always add a microSD card. A 128gb microSD card is only about $30-35 these days. The battery isn't swappable without disassembly, but Motorolas typically aren't impossible to repair, while the Nexus 6P would be. As long as you're not a heavy gamer, the Moto X Pure would be a fine choice; the GPU isn't the greatest, although more than adequate for regular stuff and light gaming. Updates will come quickly, and although it's not as open as a Nexus, it's still unlockable and there's a good amount of custom development.

Need help choosing a new phone!
Right now I am using the original Moto G for about 2 years (with CM 13). I want something bigger and faster while still being budget friendly. I have set a number of requirements as I plan to keep my new phone for about the same amount of time (about 2 years like my last phone). These are:

-Android 6.0 Marshmallow. I really like the "Google now on tap" feature and with a bigger screen I think I could make use of the split window multitasking feature found in Android 6.0.
-Big screen (about 5.5 inches) with a minimum 1080p resolution.
-At least 2 GB of RAM.
-Decent processor for multitasking (I don't care about the GPU though as I only play simple games like Sudoku and Hill Climb Racing...).
-Decent Camera (I don't expect it to be exceptional but I want it to be decent).
-Decent battery life (I would really need it to have good battery life based on my schedule for the next year or so).

The devices I am currently considering, in ascending price order (at least where I live in the range of 190€ to 280€), are:

-Lenovo K3 Note
-LG G3 (16 GB, 2 GB RAM)
-Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro (Snapdragon, 16 GB, 2 GB RAM)
-Sony Xperia Z2
-LG G3 (32 GB, 3 GB RAM)
-Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro (Snapdragon, 32 GB, 3 GB RAM)
-Huawei P8

I would really appreciate it if some of you have experience with these devices and can give me some tips

No experiences with the devices, but I have the Moto G2 andnI'm contemplatingbthe Moto G4. The 3regular one has all you want at £170 and the plus with better camera and 32 GB instead of 16 for £ 229. I checked, want one, but motorola uk doesn't ship outside the borders.

So the moto z will be more top tier than the moto g4 plus?

The Moto G lineup (maybe except the G4) has very underpowered processors for today's standards in my opinion. And at the price of the G4 plus I can easily get a device with 3 GB of ram.

Take a look at my post(#9506) about a day before! I'm also looking for a phone at that price range. I have a list of the phones I'm considering. I also include what I consider important for my personal needs. So, if you'd like, post what you like and want in a phone, so we can give you more specific answers
