I am on my second Google Nexus tablet. The first was a Nexus 7 and the current one is a Nexus 9. Over time, in both cases, the system grew increasingly unstable, freezing up or becoming very sluggish. With my current Nexus 9 the system freezes frequently and randomly reboots. I have done multiple factory resets and the end result is the same. I suspect that the hardware is failing. I am wary of making a third forray with an Android tablet so I am looking at an iPad instead.
I am not particularly concerned about learning a new interface. However, I have no current plans to switch my phone from Android to iOS. So I do have a bit of concern about switching back and forth depending on the device I happen to be using.
How concerned should I be about working with a mixed OS environment? Any anecdotal experiences?
Given the uses described above, are there any compelling reasons to reject using an iPad and stick with Android?
How does iOS do with respect to multi-tasking? I find that Android doesn't do well on the tablet. If I send an email and immediately bring up the browser, I often find that when I return to the email client, it has paused all action until the window is the active window. This doesn't usually impact short emails but on occasion I have opened my tablet to discover that an email that I thought went out with an attachment was still pending.
Any input, especially from someone with iOS and Android experience would be very appreciated.
