Need a larger tablet
#1
I currently have a surface go and want something a little larger. I am not sure that I want to go with a surface pro, because they are currently about $1000. I can pick up a galaxy tablet like the s7 for a lot less.  Does anyone use a galaxy tablet? What can you recommend?

Also, if I switch to an android tablet, will my current song files transfer over from my windows tablet?  

Thanks

The Samsung Galaxy S7 should work very well with MobileSheetsPro. The S7+ is a little nicer as it has a larger screen and better hardware, but that comes at a premium. Your library will transfer very easily over from your Windows tablet. You can just create a library backup file under Settings->Backup and Restore->Backup Library, transfer that .msb file over to the Android device, and then restore it under Settings->Backup and Restore->Restore Library from Backup.

What is large for you?
Are you going to use the tablet for anything else outside sheet music?

I have the S7+ which works fine. The only weakness I've found so far is light fixtures reflections in the shiny screen which is easy to fix by repositioning the tablet. 
A less expensive model is the galaxy S7 FE. 12.4" display
Dell Latitude 13.5" 2-in-1 Ubuntu/Win 11
Samsung Note Pro SM-P900 12.2 Android 5.0.2
Samsung S7+, Android 12

I use it for browsing mostly. 12"seems to be what I am looking for.

Ahh, I thought they discontinued it.

I think it is a good option.

.I recently bought a cheap SuperSonic SC 813 for around $240.  It is billed as 13.3".  The viewable screen size is 11.5 x 6.5.  The only thing I am using this for is sheet music.  MobileSheets works great on this machine.  The tablet takes a little longer to boot than I would like, but once booted MobileSheets is fast and the view is crisp.  I bought this because I was using unrealBooks on an iPad Pro, but my wife stole it.  Not wanting to send another $1.2K to Apple I opted for this.  Disappointed at first until I found MobileSheets.  Now it is perfect.

I still have the Samsung Note Pro 12.2 and recently bought a used Surface Pro 4.
The database backup from the android could be read into the windows version without any problems.
The Surface has a 3:2 screen ratio which I really like.

If I would have to buy a new tablet I would go for the Samsung 7 SE which costs around 500 euro.
