    Larger but dimmer tablet vs smaller brighter phone

    I have and iPhone 12 Pro Max that is nice and bright but too small for my aging eyes. I'm looking at a tablet that's significantly less bright (roughly 450 nits) but larger (8-10"). Has anyone gone to a less bright tablet and still considered it a good upgrade?

    iPad/Tablet Holder - Freebie on Thingiverse

    I just posted a printable version of my tablet holder (mine's an iPad Pro 9.7 in a case) on Thingiverse. It's a freebie. Very snug, stable and secure, it works well with smaller tablets too and does not require a long USB wire. The DJI provided wire works fine. Mavic Air 2 iPad/Tablet Holder...

    CrystalSky 5.5 or iPad Mini 4?

    I really need a dedicated monitor because my S7 Edge just sucks anymore. Reluctantly, I think I am going to spend more for a tablet than I want to because I need to be able to count on it.

    Hello all, I am on the market for a tablet to use with my Mavic Air. I have read on several different places that 2gb RAM is minimum to run the DJIGO 4 App, have not found out any specific cpu or gpu requirements, so I am wondering would this tablet be sufficient enough?

    iPad or iPad Mini?

    I can't decide between the 9.7 inch iPad and 7.9 inch iPad Mini. There seems to be a few differences besides the screen size difference. The Mini has the anti-reflective screen coating which I think would be beneficial for our purposes. It's also easier to carry than 9.7" iPad. I would also have...
