IDC reported that shipmeents in Q4 of 2015 fell nearly 14% on a year-over-year basis. Total shipments dropped 10% from 230.1 million 2014 down to 206.8 million in 2015. And even back at the end of 2014, demand had started withering away. This change in consumer demand can be traced back to a number of factors, but that's not our goal right now.Today, tablet sales continue to diminish. Just a few months ago, the
Right now, we're looking for a head count. Do you currently own a tablet? And if yes, then how old is it? And regardless of the previous, are you planning on a new purchase this year?

Have a LG G Pad 8.3 that I barely use. It's nice for reading comics on but the rest I do on laptop or my G4.

iPad Air 2 bought in 2014 and I like it due to split screen and picture in picture. No reason to update. Actually, I might never buy a new tablet again because I don't use it that often. I prefer watching movies etc. on my iPhone 6. If Apple brings true multi tasking to the iPhone, I will ditch my tablet and never buy one again.

Bought a Pixel C last year, performance is still equal if not better in some areas to new devices and battery life is fantastic. No reason to upgrade this year, doubtful for next year as well.

Have a Galaxy Tab S and i prefer the 16:10 formfactor to the newer 4:3 one, as most of the time i watch videos on youtube/Netflix/Amazon, on it. So therefore i'm not upgrading anytime soon, unless some new Tablet is released which could win me over.

Same here. I had the Tab S 10.1, wanted something else, so I sold it and got the iPad mini 4, which after 2 weeks I found myself trading it for the tab s 8.4 Great tablet with a crappy software, hopefully Samsung will release MM and I ll will finally enjoy a lag free experience on it.

They do get multi Windows. I do own an iPad mini 2. And I could watch movies while typing this comment. Something that I couldn't do on my android phone without downloading an app. Meanwhile, the mini 4 is fully optimized for multi window since it has 2gb ram.

I had that one too, was planning to update to Tab s2 but then they released an ipad copycat 9.7 with 4:3 screen Why have a weak ipad copycat when you can have a real ipad several times powerful? So i went ahead an got an ipad itself. I might change my mind if they release a Tab S with top of the line chipset with 16:10 screen.

I have a galaxy tab e for six months. It's a pretty decent tablet. I mostly use it for watching videos, the black bars kinda piss me off though because of the weird aspect ratio. I would want to upgrade to a bigger tablet like an ipad pro but my priority for now is upgrade my phone

I have an iPad 2, an iPad Air 2, and a Pixel C in the house. I have an iPad Pro 9.7 on the way, and I just got rid of an SP4 and iPad Pro 12.9. The iPad Air 2 is still my favorite tablet. The Pro 12.9 and SP4 were too big as tablets, and the SP4 sucks as a tablet, and the Pixel C was just sold on Swappa to pay for the Pro 9.7.

If phone area would leave polls on for longer I would be able to vote. I have 1 Samsung from 2015 no need to update for at least 2 more years.

The poll is still active. If you can't vote, likely someone on your network already has, so our system bars you from voting again as a precaution.

Not really Chris, I think you guys poll system has some issue. I can't ever vote when I am using my phones network, not just this one but for last couple months, it used to work fine, but now I can't vote either, BTW; I am using iPhone safari for browsing, please check if u guys can fix this problem, it works fine at home with my laptop

You can vote using your mobile network, however you can't vote using the mobile version of the Phonearena website. So you either have to scroll to the bottom of the page and tap desktop version, or use a desktop/laptop to vote.
