Tablets are great for a wide variety of mobile computing tasks. The Apple iPad 2 isn't just an awesome device; it's "magical" if you believe the Apple marketing hype. As astounding as tablets are, though, they are not without their issues. A recent survey from FixYa uncovers the most common complaints from iPad 2 and Kindle Fire users.
I have both an iPad 2, and a Kindle Fire, and I love them both. However, I can also attest to at least some of these top issues reported by FixYa.
FixYa, an online community tech support forum, compiled data from complaints for both the iPad 2 and Kindle Fire, and grouped them to determine what the most common issues are. Overall, FixYa found evidence to support the maxim "you get what you pay for," because the Kindle Fire appears to have more issues than the more expensive iPad 2.
Here is a listing of the top five issues for each tablet as summarized in a FixYa press release:
Top 5 Kindle Fire Problems
1. Can't Turn Off One-Click Shopping: 30% 2. Wi-Fi Connection Issues: 25% 3. No Parental Settings: 15% 4. Touchscreen Precision: 15% 5. USB Issues: 10%
Top 5 iPad 2 Problems
