It is impossible to answer this question with a yes or no; it really depends on what your are looking for in a tablet. In general, the iPad has many features one cannot find on an Android tablet,such as FaceTime. There are also a number of apps you can get with an iPad that you cannot get on an Android device.

Android devices are also much easier to customize and usually do not cost nearly as much as an iPad.  You may want to check the pros vs cons of each device before making your decision!
