the ideal tablet for MobileSheetsPro
(07-23-2017, 05:59 PM)conductor_63 Wrote: The ideal tablet for me as a conductor of a wind orchestra is my Samsung Galaxy View with 18,4" screen. Maybe it's the largest one which can be found. It can display the scores by 2 pages parallel. By tapping to the right it turns the next 2 pages. I got it by a good offer for 555€.
Best regards to all musicians from Saxony/Germany.

how is the resolution for reading music? reviews claim the View is awful for text reading, especially coming from the higher resolution Note Pro 12.2,  but it appears to be very popular for movie-on-the-go purposes. What do you use for annotation writing, a proprietary pen? Thanks.

I have purchased 5 of these tables - one for each member of our string quartet and one as a spare for substitute musicians - and they are OUTSTANDING.  The resolution is crisp and clear, and the battery life is unbelieveable.  I've played for 4+ hours without the need to recharge.

I currently have a number of tables in play depending on the current gig/concert I have to play. 
Two of them stands out mainly because of the screen size / format.

First is the Google Pixel C. 10.2" display in 3:2 format. I used to have another 10" tablet en widescreen format, but the difference between them is very noticeable. the 3:2 format is just so much better for viewing pdf's. 
The only disadvantage is that the Google Pixel C is quite expensive, when looking at its age. But its performance is fantastic.

My absolutely winner is not a tablet but the Samsung Chromebook Pro, which runs Android apps. This has a 12" display, again in 3:2 format. Of all the different systems I have used this is the best. It comes with a stylus that makes annotation much easier. I cannot stress how much better the 3:2 format is compared to widescreen. Something that Apple figured out long ago with the iPads, and microsoft followed with the surface tablet. 

When comparing to the hansspree 13.3" widescreen display, you get almost the same sheet size out of the 10.2" pixel C due to the 3:2 format. 13.3 inch widescreen in portrait mode is just plain annoying. 
with the 12 inch Samsung you get much more effective screen size than with a 13.3 inch widescreen.

I also use a 9.7" e-Ink onyx from time to time, depending on what/where I have to play. The e-ink is also really good, but it is a different thing all together compared to a "real" tablet. It would be unfair to compare them.

For the price (and size), I think this is the winner (get two, to have a back up!): https://www.amazon.com/NuVision-13-3-Ful...ision+13.3

Not sure if anyone else has recommended the Galaxy View 18.4" tablet but it beats the pants off any other tablet when it comes to sheet music.  It exactly fits a music stand, and displays two full-sized pages side-by-side.  The cost has been dropping, and new ones can be found for less than $400 on sale.  All four members of the string quartet use it exclusively (no paper music), and we have a back-up tablet whenever we have a sub play a gig with us.  https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/tablet...70nzkaxar/

This GVIDO - Hardware (double screen tablet) in combination with mobilesheets (but including synchronisation feature Big Grin ) is exactely, what I am looking for! Ok the price is a bit too high, but if this works (not only as a music reader)...
(https://zubersoft.com/mobilesheets/forum...p?tid=4302)

What I am able to see about the software it seems as if they are not yet at the level from mobilesheets.

Does anyone knows what OS is used?
In Germany it is not yet available, "coming soon".

I have to send my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro back.  It won't power up when the battery gets below 67%.  I see there are many posts on Google about a battery terminal manufacturing issue with this device. I end up waiting until it is 100% charged before turning on.

So, I am looking for a replacement.  I would only be using the device for MobileSheetsPro at the piano.

I guess I can go ahead and try the "NuVision 13.3" Full HD - 16GB - Android Internet Tablet with Keyboard Case, Stand & Stylus (TM1318) - Purple"  

At least it is not expensive.

Might as well pick up the NuVision at this price ($85?).  It works for Mobilesheets fine (for me) and, if you get a more powerful tablet, you can always keep it as a backup.

Only problem the Nuvision almost never is available for that price any more. I've been checking the Amazon site frequently for a friend who wants one but it seems to be always out of stock with no indication when or if it is available again.
