Like IDC, JD Power Rankings after the updated data and smartphones for tablets. The best in the opinion of users surveyed were named tablets Samsung. They scored the most total points in all five criteria considered. Apple lost the lead and fell to second place. Device companies still are the easiest to learn and further work, and are not inferior to the competition in performance. In this case, the lag Apple Samsung’s was only 2 points: 833 vs. 835. In third place comes the Amazon with 826 points.
