I figured it has been long enough since I asked this in a previous post, but what options are out there for appraisers that want a more compact field sketcher. I am currently using a Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7.0 and still am not thrilled about the cumbersome nature of this tablet while trying to hold a tape, crawl in bushes, fight off wasps, jump fences, etc. I refuse to use any non-apex products as they are all extremely inferior (imo) given the way measure. I loathe the size of my Tab4 so much that I have regressed to using my ancient Windows Mobile device running MobileSketch. It fits in my pocket, easily held in one hand and the battery last a hell of a lot longer than any tablet I've owned. Unfortunately today I had to put my WMD to rest. I have a backup WMD but can't seem to get Mobilesketch to load correctly and it is no longer supported. Given the ever growing size of cell phone screens, I still can't help but see a market for an all in one device (i.e. phone, email, MLS, Supra, Total, Mobilesketch, etc.). With screens close to 6", a Samsung Note 5 or iPhone 7 Plus would be ideal.
