Does /a/ read manga or watch stuff on a tablet? I was thinking on getting the galaxy tab pro 8.4, any thoughts?
I like reading manga on my phone or tablet while I lie in bed.
The problem is that I use an iPhone and some places or apps force open the App Store and it's annoying enough to actually stop me from reading on mobile
Used to use android, now use iOS. Miss androids better file architecture and general openness but it wasn't very reliable at times. Still the better platform for mango.
Comicglass isn't bad if you're on iOS.
It takes a lot of getting used to if you're used to android. Though it does have some perks. Namely it's usually stable as he'll compared to android. Never once had to reset my air.
But yes its file arch is downright horrible for anyone used to anything even remotely better.
>willingly updating to eight
It's well know you're supposed to wait like 6 months to actually take an update. Too buggy otherwise.
And yeah the 2 is terribly out of date by now.
If you buy anything that isn't the Google Nexus 7. Then you over paid for crap.
Try to prove me wrong
is it good? i saw a deal for 120€ for the 2013 version i think. I had a note 2 but some french nigger stole it when i was in paris. Now im reading stuff on a motorola xoom but that thing is 10' and weight like a kilogram-very unconfortable.
Buy the nexus 10 then. A nexus 8 is coming out later this year. Plus I don't see why you would want something bigger when manga is originally printed on 7"
It"s durable as hell. Can survive a fall unlike the iShit and feels sturdy unlike the Samsung. Plus for the price of around 160USD, it's not over priced for what it offers compared to other competitors.
I prefer reading in landscape and scrolling down the page for most manga. 4koma are about the only manga I read portrait, the (generally) simplistic backgrounds and panel layout lends well to that orientation.
the note 2 i had was sturdy as hell. You've got downs or something if you can break a non i device. I loved it but its to expensive to buy for me. The Note2 i had was a live demo version so i got it for 60€. U cant use it for calls and sms/3g internet but wlan and everything else works. Il guess i get me a nexus then.
btw i slammed my freshly repaired iphone 4 on the table slyghtly because it was lagging the shit out on me-and the backcover got the spiderman app. Love it
>there are actually people who use reading apps that just pull from some pleb site
>there are people who actually have to scroll pages to read them
I usually read in portait mode to be able to see the whole page at once (which is how it's supposed to be)
If I wanted to scroll every 10 seconds I'd read it on my computer
I have the exact same thing except I DL my manga. I honestly think that people like you don't actually understand the alternative to reading online. I never used to hear stuff like this before batoto came around; everyone downloaded.
I have an ipad mini and I used manga storm on it.
It's a good app and has an auto-download feature, but the only downside is, you have to download manga from one of the manga readers.
I used iBooks to read light novels and what not.
I don't like streaming anime period, but Im going on a road trip with some friends this weekend so 'll be streaming my shows on the ride there.
i've read almost everything that i was interested in. I use mangarock cuz it sends me a massage when a manga i like gets updated. No need for me to download archives and read them-i've done it long ago.
>too lazy to take the 60 sec required to visit a scanlator site and download a file
Yeah because putting up with shit like load times, crashes, missing chapters, censorship, and horrendous image quality is completely worth saving those precious seconds.
Mangarock is better.
I had times where I go on a deployment after download a shit ton of manga and there are a ton of chapters/ pages corrupted. Pissed me off so much.
What I really recommend is just downloading your manga and putting on your tablet instead of streaming.
>new chapter auto download
>downloads a horribly compressed scan complete with watermarks and censorship
It's a waste of money though. It may have been worth it before, but the only good site on there is Batoto which is pretty shit now since tons of stuff has been removed, and is not updated.
That makes no sense, go back to /b/ if you can't type properly on /a/.
No, it isn't rare. It's actually very likely you're downloading piss poor quality images when compared to the actual source.
>being fine with watermarks
Get out you disgusting normal.
>implying the 5$ would have been put to better use
>implying you wouldn't waste more buying fast food
Hey, at least it lasts
Well it doesn't happen to me, I don't know what to say.
dont get angry anon. Your blood pressure is going up! The doctor said its dangerous.
>being so assblasted about watermarks that you see for like 5seconds each page.
Do you fucking analyze each page or what? progressive autism?
who cares anyway. Its not like you notice the quality if you read stuff on a phone/tablet. Watermarks are literary triggers for autistic childreen. I dont get people.
you cumbucket is full
Batoto is fucking shit.
>staff are huge moralfags so no delicious Nana but minamoto is ok because they make money for all the views
>known to have censored chapters in the past
Fuck you and every other retard that thinks batoto is anything other than shit.
Yes, I read my mango on a 10.5 inch tablet and It's obvious when an image is full of compression and scaling artifacts
You clearly don't browse /a/ either because you'd know what weeaboo means.
all this poorfag denial ayyylmao.
Why such a pleb phone?
Use perfect viewer or a comic viewer for what you download, use kissmanga (on the browser) for streaming, all pages view is actually comfortable on mobile devices
I prefer something with a microSD card slot and a bezel that isn't the size of Belgium.
Samsung and even LG hate expandable storage as well.
I've had to mod my galaxy s5 to make my 64 gb microsd to be writeable. But I think it's for the same reason why apple does this to their iphones. First, it's obvious it's for the money. But it's also to maintain the phone's processing ability. I've seen this happen myself with the same phone. I had another galaxy s5 with a 4gb microsd and it ran a lot smoother until I put my 64gb microsd in it.
There are legitimate security reasons for locking down the SD card, since FAT doesn't have all the permissions features that ext4 does. It just so happens that it correlates nicely with Google's mission of making you use Drive.
yes i have a ipad mini 2 for manga and for books i recomend you a tablet with aspect ratio of 16:10 the tab pro is great you will use the most of the screen on most mangas, i like the 4:3 aspect ratio for pdf, light novels and so, i chosed the mini 2 and i only have to zoom a little with mangas, also buy manga rock, is totally worth it
I use a 64GB microUSB drive with my nexus 9. It does the job well and I don't really even miss not having a microSD slot anymore.
And the new Tegra K1 just plows through 1080p files, even in software mode.
The Nex 7 is the greatest purchase I made last year, it's a god tier reading device. I wouldn't willingly watch anime on it though, the only time I ever did that was on my breaks when I was working.
Understandable, it fit my needs
I haven't been motivated to really draw anything over the last few years so I'm not really one to ask this, sorry.
I wanted something that fit my laptop and tablet needs in one device
sd cards have built in hardware security requiring a passcode to accesss data, regardless of the filesystem.
They also have a built in drm feature that can be enabled to allow only specific applications to access it, which is utilized by microshit phones to keep you from using the card on any other device unless you format it.
I don't mean to shill, but I personally have one of those portable Filehubs that you plug media into. The one I got lasts ~6 hours while sharing off a portable harddrive. $150 (HDD was that slim Seagate with the Samsung drive and the Filehub itself was 50 bucks) for a 2TB storage upgrade is pretty good.
Watermarks and low quality images are so fucking obvious. Worse than streaming anime, because getting shit from a better source is not even difficult, takes very little time and you can still read online if the scanlator has an online reader.
Why would choose the obviously inferior product, at zero extra cost?
