- Cheap Android Tablet Recommendations???
I had an ‘Ainol’ 7″ (no giggling at the back….) tablet until my 6yo dropped it and borked the screen…
Looking for a replacement, under £100 – any suggestions? Had a quick look on Amazon and it seems a bit of a mixed bag. He just uses it for games and films.
Thanks in advance, Chris.Posted 4 years agolovewookieMember
Second hand Galaxy tab2 come in around the £100. IME it’s really difficult to evaluate what’s good or crap from the chinese cheap tablet market.
Have a look at the used ones on Amazon, I have 2 which have been much more reliable than the superpad that died after 3 months.Posted 4 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember
I know its a bit over budget: but Tesco Direct are / were selling refurbished Nexus 7’s 16gb for ~ £119. One year warranty.
They seem to crop up regularily in their ebay store. They’re currently only listing 32gb for £135.
Having had cheap “branded” Android before I’d never do that again.Posted 4 years agoCletusMember
+1 Nook HD
Bought one for my 7 year old daughter and it has been great so far.
The tablet has 8GB but can be expanded using a micro SD card.
The Android implementation is bit different from normal but it has run everyone so far and you could always root it to get a vanilla Android experience if desired.
I actually quite like the Nook version – it is really simple to create profiles for individual users and so limit what the kids can do.
The only issue is it does not have a camera so apps that use these are not supported.

I bought my parents an Acer Iconia B1 which has been great. I paid £100 off ebuyer back in April but I saw Argos outlet doing returns with warranty for £60 recently.
A branded one can be useful if you want to rent films etc as the rooted ones usually aren’t allowed to do thatPosted 4 years agoCletusMember
The Nook does have a non standard interface but the other end of the cable is a standard USB.
It has not been an issue for me as the Nook is used by my daughter so the charger stays mostly at home apart from holidays or weekends away.
If it was used by me then it might be a wee bit painful having to lug the special cable about but no different from an iPad.Posted 4 years ago
