...what's the collective opinion on maximum bang for buck (preferably not HuaWei)?
Some ideas on here:
Very happy with my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2.
Although expensive I've had it 3 plus years and it's still going strong, fast reliable. I think the lesser tablets tend to get replaced more often.
Picked up for £200 in the black friday sales, was a bargain.
Bought an Amazon Fire 10 for £110 about 5 weeks ago.
Seems ok so far .
Very happy with my Samsung Galaxy Tab E.
But if you buy a HuaWei you get a lot more followers on social media - the entire Chinese security service
What do you all use your tablets for?
I've two of them, one is a test device for developing apps so it has a purpose, but my older, personal one is very rarely used.
The only time I can think of when I use it is for watching tv/movies on flights.
I only use mine to watch Netflix or iPlayer in bed.
Ahh I believe you need to be more specific.
Ipads cost more but are the real deal!
Lots of porn
Why not a Hauwei?
Mixture of durability and security.
Ok. Not convinced by the 'security issues' myself, but each to their own.
Have to disagree with you very strongly here. I have the same model and for about 2 years the battery life was appalling - it went flat every day (something to do with one of the Android OS updates). Finally it appears to have been fixed, but it still freezes/goes on the fritz or go slow.
I hate Apple but iPads are better than Samsung tablets in my experience.
I have a Samsung Note 8 Phone, which is great.
I bought a fire 7 each for my kids ages ago (3 years?). I invested in a child resistant case for each with an SD card to expand the miserable 16gb memory, but they've served well for the £30 I paid for each of them.
For someone who wants a bit more of an adult experience, the larger Fires are, I'm sure OK, but you are tied into the Amazon version of Android, unless you jailbreak it.
Maybe have a look at Asus? They tend to have a good range from budget up to premium tablets.
Hmmm mines been rock solid. Must be an app eating it in the back ground if it isn't just a duff battery. If you've not already got it download ES file explorer (free version is fine) will help you strip out the crap and do a system health check, will also tell you which aps are processor & battery hungry. They used to have a stand alone ES manage application but I think it's all in one now.
Certainly disable all the bloatware that you're not using.
Forgot to add my Dad's Lenovo 7" has been decent if you need a budget option
No, it's fine now. It was a known issue after one of the Android OS updates. Loads of people had the same issue. I've hardly any apps on it
Won't your dad mind if Berko has it?
Nah at his age he hasn't missed the rest of his stuff I've sold to feed my beer habit.
