Is this ok for reading manga / watching anime on the go? I keep hearing how the screen is too small, but it can play mkv files
>>
>being on the go

Why?
>>
>>101086529
this. when you're outside take a fucking break
>>
you won't enjoy manga with 20 or lower font
>>
>>101086697
>being this casual
>>
>>101086727
so, which tablet would you recommend?
>>
>>101086767
I would recommend an Apple iPad Air with Retina Display. It's the only tablet worth owning.
>>
>>101086504
I've been using my Nexus 7 for the last year. Mango is the app I currently use, and it seems to work fine for manga. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who wants to read.

As for watching, I'm pretty sure MXplayer or one of those things works pretty well, however I don't watch anime on my tablet.

Go get the 10" one.
>>
>>101086767
a 10 inch tablet It's small yet handy because you like the read and watch anime while running away from cops.

7" > 10"

While 10" would be nice for screen size, you may need to make sure that holding a 10" tablet would be comfortable. I prefer the 7" tablet due to it feeling more like a book.

Buy a pair of AR glasses instead.
You can read your pedo manga outside without any trouble.
>>
Go for a 10" if you reads LN too.
>>
>>101087327
>reading LNs ever
>>
>>101087327
So, go for a 7".
>>
>>101087155
i tried reading berserk which is more detailed than most mangas, and i have to say that i do prefer watching it on the galaxy tab 10", as you may need to zoom small panels on the nexus 7 to more easily see the details, however once you get used to it it's pretty fast to maneuver, so you don't really mind that much.
Definitely easier to hold in your than the 10" too.

If you're looking for a the lowest budget. Then 7" passes.
>>
I have Nexus 7, it's great device for manga and panda even occasional DeadFish 720. After a year I must admit that I'd rather take that 3 more inches for slightly more comfortable reading.

This is what Google wants you to believe.
>>
>>101088908
NSA will watch you regardless, since they have an extensive library of exploits to monitor you.

They also have other ways of getting to you, like intercepting a computer you've bought online, installing spyware on it and then shipping it to you or activating spyware built in to your HDD's firmware, which you can't get off regardless of how many times you format it.
>>
>>101088908
But it's true.
Same as how Google will spy on you.

Difference is, with Google I'm not getting ripped off as well as spied on, and my apps are cheaper and far less restricted. Seriously, these days iOS apps are pretty infuriatingly limited in what they can do since Apple locks down so much of the functionality of the system.
>>
>>101089080
Woah, hold the fuck on. Last time I checked NSA had backdoors installed in CPUs. intel CPUs
>>
>>101086504
You can play mkv files on iOS as well if you transfer them via wifi with the VLC app, if that matters. The 2013 N7 is still pretty great for its price though.

Size is bit smaller than normal manga page but it's readable. I don't really use it to read manga but it should be ok since resolution is good.
>>
>>101089465

and in software, numbnuts.

iOS sends back shittons of "usage data" (more than most people would really be comfortable with), same as Android, and both Google and Apple's internal networks were deliberately targetted by the NSA with the intent of tapping it. As well as all the complicit shit both companies were doing, the NSA was deliberately intercepting their internal private networks between datacenters to harvest sensitive information that was being sent in unencrypted formats. Google has since raced to encrypt these links, but Apple never acknowleges when there is a published security breach in order to keep media noise down and preserve their semi-fictitious rep for security, so who fucking knows with them. If its anywhere it'll be buried under marketing gobbledegook in some insipid press release.

OP get the 32GB version if you can, considering you can even torrent from the nexus 7 it could be useful in case of emergency.

>for Android
>plays any file (mkv, avi, mp4...)

>FULL ssa animated subtitles support
is there an app like this?
>>
>>101092808
MX PLayer
>>
>>101092897
nope. MXPlayer doesn't have full ASS/SSA support.
>>
>>101092808
for anime best video player for Android is XBMC nighty. Full screen support only for Kitkat though
>>
>>101092700

You can torrent on the Nexus? Holy shit.

>>101092987
Without ASS/SSA support, does that mean I'm limited to Deadfish? Can it even play 720p without issues?
>>
>>101092987
then how can you watch subbed animu on android

Would you consider buying a Nexus 7 just for reading manga waste of money?
>>
>>101086805
>apple
>>
>>101094364
yes, but you'll probably use it for more than just that eventually
>>
>>101094364
That's what i did, spread out eventually but mostly use it for manga and LNs still.
>>
I would say go for a Nook HD+ for this purpose. It's relatively cheap (you can get one refurbished for around $120, or $150-ish for new) has a bigger screen than the Nexus 7, and works great for the things you described. Do probably want to install custom firmware on it but this is very easy to do, and once you do it's a great tablet for the price.
>>
Poorfag here. I recently ordered myself my very 1st tablet. An Ultratab Jazz C725. I know VERY WELL that it doesn't even come close to the specs that a Nexus 7 has which is the the tablet i want the most, but beggars can't be choosers. Just wanted to ask what would be the best video file format to use on it so as to not have it freeze or crash on me? I do plan on installing the Lightning Launcher" app to help speed it up if that helps any.
>>
>>101087327
Don't read books on anything but e-ink, and 10 is too big to hold comfortably while reading. Most e-readers are 6" and great for books. One inch too small for manga based on my experience though.
>>
>>10109 supports ASS but more complex typesetting stutters. You'll be fine for most things, really. You won't notice much difference with dead fish on such small screen though.
