    Default Tablet recommendation around 100 - 150?

    Last christmas we got my son one of the kindle fire tablets for him to play some basic games and watch YouTube on. Over the year it's been pretty decent but I find it lagging sometimes (Amazon Android ROM) and we'll be getting his older sister an iPad so thinking this year we'll spend a little more and get him a larger tablet thats an upgrade to what he has today.

    I've no idea what tablets are good and bad though. Ideally looking something with at least an 8" screen but I'd like to avoid an Amazon tablet again as it is pretty bloated.

    One I seen was the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which looked decent - but is there something better around that price that I should also consider?

    He mostly watches YouTube on it but has some games too - like Roblox.

    Could you flash a stock ROM on it?

    I've got two Nexus 7's which do the job

    I've got a Linx 10 from work (Gee thanks guys...) which is a windows tablet. To be fair its not been a bad tablet.

    Chuwi make some good tablets as do xiaomi. They are also value for money.

    I got a Chuwi Hi9 Air for 150 which I am very happy with. I think normally they go for a little more but I managed to get a good price on an ebay auction.

    Cheers guys. I ended up picking a Samsung Tab A 10.1" with a case for 150 when out picking up some other Christmas stuff yesterday. A little low on the RAM and a USB-C would have been nice but it's going to be an improvement for the little guy over the Fire Tablet.

    my partner got that model and it suffers from updates

    when the updates appear she has to delete stuff and cleanup the tab just to get the updates. I told her to get rid of candycrush and all them other girlie games

    the 4gig mem 64 gig space in my opinion would have been a better buy

    Good to know, we'll see how it goes. He's just turned 6 and will be mainly using it for YouTube.

    Bumping this one, I'm looking for a 10" android tablet after my Nexus 10 finally called it quits, I've looked at the chuwi ranges anyone tried the teclast brand.
    It's main use is probably the wife browsing and I'll use it for some electrical certification software I use, there's that bloody many it's tricky to know which is good and bad any advice appreciated

    Cheers

    My Chewi still working fine, just wish I could delete all the windows partitions and keep it as android 7.1 as I don't use windows now on it

    I was loving my Chuwi until I dropped it and the bluetooth doesn't work properly any more (and screen slightly cracked).

    Considering I dropped it on tiles, I can't really blame the tablet.

    If it’s anything like my Linx 1010 work gave me, it won’t be half bad

    Can always stick a 128gb micro sd card in them as well.
