Default Tablet Recommendations

I am looking for a new tablet. My last 2 have been Samsungs. I didn't think they lasted long enough for what I paid. The Wi-Fi connection went out on the first and, according to Samsung could not be repaired. The second has slowed down so much, it reminds me if dial-up😅 I want to be able to use it for some apps (kindle, Facebook, etc.) Any recommendations on something you have liked? Thanks!

I have the iPad mini and love it. I have had it for 2 years now and no problems - my daughter has one that is even older. (My daughters and I are Apple fans in case you haven't noticed.)

I have had my iPad for about 5 years with no issues. It my iPhone and iMac are coordinated in that what I look at on one I can look at on either of the other two. Also an Apple fan.

I am a Samsung fan, maybe you have been unlucky in yours? Did you clear the cache on your latest one? Or check what's running all the time? That can slow any tablet down if you have lots of things running in the background.

I just got a larger Ipad to replace my Ipad mini that I dropped and broke. They both worked fantastic and my larger Ipad was only a bit more costly than my mini.
I love the bigger Ipad and the price at Microcenter was great.

Go to YouTube and type in Marilyn Farquhar-6th Update to watch her designing on her IPad Pro to see if that is what you are looking for.

For the price I like my Kindle Fire, but they only last about a year.
