The perfect tablet does not exist:

A: Good hardware+software to achieve low latency

B: Supports multiple user accounts

C: Has alternative app stores so it doesn't choke innovation

D: Provides regular software upgrades for long life.

Apple scores on A & D whereas Android on B & C.

@nilesh Apple, Google, maybe they should stop their mobile war with each other

@nilesh not really a tablet-pro myself, but wouldn't this be solved by some nice high-end tablet with LineageOS (if that's even available)?

Or just wait for PineTab to come up with a newer, beefier version :)

@allien Samsung S7+ scores on 3 of them but audio latency on Android had been terrible. There are no good music-making apps at all.

@nilesh I'm not really agree concerning Apple and D : they are still the OS champions who become very/too greedy on aging hardware or who may abandon some platforms altogether. I bought the first iPad and didn't get an iOS update after not even two years. So I have a tablet in very good condition but perfectly useless.

A bit expensive but the Lenovo P11 Pro seems quite cool 🤔

@nilesh it must be able run mainline linux! postmarketos.org/ are working on it, though.. tbh could be ages until it's really anything for the general public? (depends on device too)

If we have that only a bit worried about point A in that case.
