    I'm looking to buy a tablet for everyday use.
    I'd like to stick with Samsung just because I am satisfied with my Galaxy S5 phone.
    But open to all others as well.

    I need some help deciding which one to buy.

    Definitely need a Micro SD card slot
    Price does not really matter
    Preferably a larger screen would be nice
    I will only use it on WiFi as well

    Could really use some help deciding which ones to go for, if you have any please post what you like and dislike about your current tablet.

    I recently purchased a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and I'm thrilled with it.

    I would go with a Sammy as well. You may want to look at the Galaxy 12.2 as well.The Note Pro 12.2' has 3GB of RAM and quad-core processor offers superior performance, while the S Pen becomes truly useful in combination with the slates large, bright screen.

    Samsung makes great tablets, my first was a first Gen 10.1, Good but first Gen, second and Current a Nexus 10, love it except for the non-microSD part. I looked at the 12.2 and it was nice but huge.

    Good idea.. You may find 12.2 is too big and 10" is a better choice..

    The 12.2 is awesome. I'm hoping they make a quad HD version while they are refreshing their tablet line ups. The 12.2 is my daily driver. I also have a Xoom and a couple of iPads. None of them have gotten any face time since the 12.2 arrived.

    I bought an ASUS Transformer pad last summer and am not really happy with it. It's laggy which annoys me.... I am looking into a Samsung either 8 or 10". Really want something with the S Pen but my question is how does it stack up to the pen features on the Note 4? Is it still worth it as far as features or should I look at just the tab series?

    IMO, you really can't go wrong with the Sammy Tab series. And the SPen support would be a huge plus. They don't have as many specific Spen features as the Note 4, but since you already use and enjoy the Spen, the Tab would be the way to go IMO.
    My second choice would be the Nexus 9. Both me and my SO enjoy our Nexus 7s daily and she uses a stylus with hers ALL the time. She actually prefers to use a stylus on her S5 more often than not, but I'm getting off track here.
    Personally I'd go with the Tab.
    Good luck with your decision Miller!
