iPad or a different brand?

My ancient iPad is coming to the end of its life, being very slow, creaky and unresponsive. I've been looking at the Sony tablets which are slim, lightweight and look good. Has anyone made the switch from iPad to Sony, or any other brand?
Most of them are cheaper than iPads, but do they perform as well? I don't want to make a mistake. Advice appreciated please.

It is, notanan. I love my Fire. So compact and easy to use. In fact I much prefer it to my daughter's iPad. And the price is incredible.

In town today passing the Sony shop I had a quick look and now I fancy the Xperia which was lovely and slim and lightweight but it cost the same as the iPad..
Maybe I could look up a review in Which magazine, if the library still has such a thing.

My iPad freezes and sometimes I have to poke it several times before it does anything. And I get that dreaded black screen with the white Apple logo which I think means it's updating itself. Slowly conking out, methinks.... (Like me)
