    What do you guys think i should buy?,it's between a white ps vita assassins creed bundle, 3ds xl, nexus 7 ,or htc evo. I've owned a black vita and 3ds before so i already know what they're like. Also i've never owned a high end android phone/tablet before and that's why i want one. So what do you guys think?

    I've had all of the above except the Nexus 7 (Though I've played on one recently) and I say the Nexus. My fucking god my Evo's battery life is so shit I have to carry 3 batteries around so it doesn't die with average use. And two of those batteries are extended batteries that make the phone twice as thick.

    The Nexus 7 is a great tablet and runs pretty much everything without any problems, so go with that.

    EDIT: Shit, hit the wrong button in the poll. Uhh...whoops.

    On a serious note, to clarify, you didn't have the vita and 3ds anymore?

    What features will you use on the phone or tablet like is it only for gaming? It might be better to go for another brand/type of phone/tablet depending.

    Vita sucks ass, not a lot of great games.
    3DS sucks ass, not a lot of great games.
    Evo's battery life is extra shitty, is only a good phone when you root it and put a Custom ROM on it (I have a fully working ICS ROM on mine, works wonderful but that battery life...)
    Nexus 7 is a great tablet for the price, has great specs, and runs everything great.

    At this point it's personal preference, but the Nexus 7 > all of the rest IMO.


    EDIT: Also holy shit fix your grammar.

    Watching movies? Nexus 7
    Watching Netflix? Nexus 7 or 3DS XL (if you want 3D movies)
    Listening to music? Nexus 7

    Gaming? Depends. It really depends.
    Android sort of lacks in games right now. Although the tegra 3 is capable of nice graphics. Android also has some decent emulator support (with PS3/Wii controller support).
    Have you considered an iPad mini? TBH there are more games on iOS and Android. But iOS has very little customization compared to the rooted android.

    These are just my opinions.

    Android has pretty much the same (or clones of the same) games as iOS at the moment, plus better emulators etc etc.

    Also, I don't know of any specific release data...at all for the iPad Mini. Have there been any updates on it?

    Mostly rumors. You should probably try a friends tablet to try games. You might not like it.

    Netflix doesn't do 3d...yet.

    I didn't really look into tablets like that, so idk.

    Despite what some say, 3ds does have nice and bigger library (of course because is has been out longer).
    XL screens seem like they would be awesome and it's still a cheaper investment.

    If you really want the vita, you would wait until it or the memory cards are cheaper
    and has a bigger library.

    I had this same smart phone for ~4 years and haven't really look into getting another one.
    What's the phone you have now? I this comes down to what you value more, games with a few features or
    vi versa?


    As a near future thing,it is either between the phone or 3ds XL.
    Me personal the 3ds XL since this phone is still going well for me.

    A these devices can do this, of course each are better in certain areas. What do you want most?

    The Nexus 7 is a beast. emulation runs amazingly, games run fast, combined with the library of free and paid games and aplications, i'd say it's the best option.

    If you really wanted a new phone with decent specs for a reasonable price, try the Sony Erricson Xperia range. They aren't all 4G but I think there is one model you can buy unlocked that is, or you could look at them on contracts.
