Android vs Windows
#1
Hi,

i couldn't find a topic like this, so I started this one.

I am new to mobilesheets and was looking for a tablet at a size and ratio 
near a A4 papers sheet. I am open for both ,android or windows.

This idea took me hours to figure out, that it's not easy these days 
to find a tablet which is in my prefered size, in a price of max. 500 Euro 
and is not using low end hardware.A good rating of customers is 
another point I am looking for. I don't want a cheap China tablet which 
has a lot bugs, bad quality or is not working right.

Now my question, is there any reason, seen from the side of mobilesheet, to prefere a 
Android or Windows system? Is there a difference between the Windows and Android
Version of Mobilesheets ?
As i said i am new to mobilsheets and open to buy a android or windows tablet. 
If there is any other reason, beside mobilesheets, to better buy one of both systems, it 
would be nice to read your opinion. .

btw. i have a favourite tablet for windows, which is a Acer Switch Alpha 12 i3 or i5
with 4GB Ram, 256GB storage and a ratio of 3/2 (2160x1440 pixels) which is
close to A4.
For Android, it's  hard to finde one that fits what i like ,especially the size and ratio.
most android tablets i saw with a size I like where older models with older android versions
Of 4 ,5 or 6 ... So i was unsure how long this older android versions will be supported by
Mobilesheets. ..

Thank you..
Regards
Frank

Hi Frank

I'm just a user, not part of the MobileSheets gang but here's my experience which may help you.

I started using Mobile Sheets on an Android tablet and was very happy with the programme, but not the size of the tablet. I eventually upgraded to a MS SurfacePro because I wanted the larger size. I noticed no difference when converting from one tablet to the other.

Hope that helps

The oldest version of Android supported by MSPro was recently increased to 4.4, and 4.4 is 5 years old.
Such an old version also means that you're missing security updates of the last 5 years, which may make your tablet vulnerable to hacks and attacks.

So if you're looking for a new purchase it is probably not a good idea to go for an already outdated Android.

Sometimes it is possible to install a non-standard ROM on older tablets. For example, I'm running LineageOS 14.1 (based on Android 7.1) on my ancient Note and MotoG. But installing a non-standard ROM may be tricky and requires some experience.

There are some very small differences between the Android and Windows 10 versions, but these don't affect most users. They are designed to be as identical as possible. When it comes to Android, I actually support Android 4.0 or higher, but there will come a time in the near future where I will need to bump that up to 4.3 or 4.4 in order to support new functionality. I would recommend getting Android 6.0 or higher if possible.

Android is best for mobile phone and for the computer of course Windows.

Time is changing. Chrome OS 70 is out with tablet UI. It supports Android apps.
Announced Google's Pixel Slate tablet with 12.3" display is coming this November followed by many others like "Cheza" tablet.

It's overkill to view PDFs/use MobileSheets with Windows.

Well, it depends on how you use it.  I have a mobile and an Xperia Tablet with Android and a desktop PC and a Surface Pro with W10.

My usage has gone almost exclusively to the Win devices since the powerful Surface can be used for other interesting things like Band-in-a-Box
or full-blown notation software and whatever. Also editing and maintaining the database on the desktop is way more comfortable than on an Android
device or a tablet in general or through the companion (and more easily backupped/mirrored automatically with dropbox or other cloud services).

If there were a Windows version of iRealPro I probably would retire my Android devices for sheet music.

So IMHO it's not overkill and currently I would prefer the Windows version. (And of course it's just a question of the device and its price. Android devices are quite a bit cheaper than 
comparable Windows devices. MSP itself is so affordable you can easily purchase both if you have both OS (and should to award Mike for his efforts).
