... Windows 10 works better than Android.

I used to use my Nexus 7 for everything once the desktop was off for the night, and thought it worked really well.
And it does. But ...

Since the Wookietab died I've had to go back to the Nexus, and it's a PITA do do anything slightly complicated on. Just trying to report a plagiarist takes far too long: and that's just the links, a bit of text, and a quote of a plagiarised example. Even using Chrome in both tablets, it's so much easier to copy the URL - where is F6 on Android? Nowhere. Why is paste such a palaver? Try posting into a gap between two characters on both, and see what happens ...

But Android has some serious goodies, Microsoft. Try "swipe to type" some day, and check it against the cut down nuisance that is your soft keyboard, even in "full" mode.
