- 10" tablet – £200 – which one?
My son has been saving all his pocket money for a while now, and I’ve been tasked with helping find the best one he can afford…..Posted 1 year ago
Basically he wants it for games (Minecraft, clash of clans etc) , would be nice to have extra storage space for movie’s and music.
Typing this on a Lenovo Yoga. It is 11 months old and is now crap. It stalls and freezes all the time. Will shortly factory reset and take in back to John Lewis. Will replace with an iPad mini.
It was really good for first 6 months, I think it has been killed by android updatesPosted 1 year agos1m0nMember
Looking at similar for son’s 12th birthday.
Originally looking at Android and at Samsung Tab S2 – he has android phone. I’ve had problems with Android phones and tablets not lasting long in the past (Samsung, Sony, Asus and Nexus) whereas the iPhone 4 and original iPad we have are still going ok.
Now looking at either iPad mini 4 or Air 2 for son (with contributions from grandparents and himself to get better model).
I moved back to Apple after 4 years away this year and find it much better but that’s only my views.Posted 1 year agoCougarSubscriber
I believe the Nvidia thing is the de facto choice for gaming, yes. It’s quite a lump though.Posted 1 year agoiaincSubscriber
i bought my Lenovo to replace a Nexus that had been killed by updates. Given Lenovo has gone same way I’m not expecting much out of John Lewis even though it’s under warranty.
I should have just payed the extra £100 last year and bought an ipad.
Won’t have another android in the near future 🙁Posted 1 year agocanopyMember
i’ve got a linx8 (windows tablet, had 8.1 but now running 10) so i’ll tell you what is great, and what isn’t. (things to check for).
the most important thing is to ensure it can be powered and use USB devices at the same time. this isn’t so much a problem with 10″ tablets, but is most annoying thing i’ve encountered with mine (it doesn’t have OTG) so its worth pointing it out.
This will enable things like playing films off of USB stickers/caddy while powered without the battery running out, additionally other useful things like using a USB keyboard+mouse.
If I were shopping for one now I’d go for one with a bluetooth keyboard intergrated case out-of-the-box, and budget for a bluetooth mouse. then you’ve basically got a small low powered PC. (talking of which, I have no idea about games performance).
i do have an iPad however it has a very different usage and since it cant have its storage boosted with microsd cards or usb stickers or caddys its a dead weight in some cases.Posted 1 year agokm79Member

You linked to the Nvidia Console not the Nvidia K1 Tablet. See link below for review of the tablet (which is no lump in comparison).Posted 1 year agosimonlovell999Member
This one: huawei mediapad m2 in 10″, I got the 7″ version and impressed with it. Use it for internet, gaming, netflix and music playback. Good battery life, camera, harman kardon speakers and can take a micro sd upto 128gb. The user interface takes a vit of getting used as no menu from stock but a google app can sort that

I’ve got a Samsung galaxy tab A that replaced a iPad mini 1 and weve also got an iPad 3. The Tab A is probably the best, screen is better in the big iPad, but you can do so much more on an android tablet it’s mad. I hardly ever turn the laptop on now, I’d love a really high spec android tab but for now the one I’ve got will do.Posted 1 year agoPePPeRSubscriber
How about saving some money and buying one of these?
I bought one for my friend 85 years old with dementia, he loves watching his beloved MotoGP on it.
Speaker is a bit rubbish, but 32gb and as decent a process as many others makes this a good buy imo.Posted 1 year ago
