  • iPad mini FTW

I love the mini line. The iPad mini 5 has been clutch for me and it's definitely my favorite Apple device they have ever made. As far as phones go, I'm not a fan. I like iOS as a secondary option in my workflow. I prefer Android OS (specifically stock) as my daily driver. I currently use a Pixel 3. My work phone is an iPhone XR and it drives me up the wall.

I'm not surprised by this number.

1. The iPad is a very successful product line that started 10 years ago, it wasn't the first tablet on the market by far, but had a huge impact and defined the market.
2. They can't be upgraded, so just like phones you use it until it's dead, slow, incompatible - you're forced to replace it eventually.
3. iPads are the type of devices that are hard/impossible to repair - you typically get a replacement instead of holding on to your device (a replacement counts as a second/new device, so numbers go up).

I'm not trashing Apple in any way, this marketing disease that aims to throw huge numbers around is slightly misleading, even though the iPad is a huge success.

32gb? Hell no.
Better save some more money and buy the ipad air 3 or ipad pro 10.5 if IOS is a must.

During 10 years of iPad history I've bought 3 models. I don't like iOS, but iPad is the only Apple device worth buying - great spec and price.

Apple owns smartwatch market, tablet market and phone market and still android fanboys thinks it's about marketing and brainwashing people :) Sure nothing to do with great products year over year with best ecosystem in the market.

[deleted post]Bendable iPad tablet can be easily mitigated by a $10-$20 protective case. A user with enough caution will very likely not break the iPad.

You cannot resolve errors found in a $200 realme or Redmi. A careful user may end up breaking the phone without user error. Just take a look at screen burn-in (despite LCD screen), touch delay/freeze issues, etc. This is why $100-$200 Androids have been nicked "lottery phones" here. A average user won't know if the product received is defective or not.

I prefer to use a $400 iPad despite being bendable. I don't use lottery products. They're e-waste and bad.
