What are the decent tablets these days?


Recommended Posts

I have a Samsung Tab S 10.5  that ive had for around 4ish years and its starting to die and not hold charge and slowing down etc.

 

what are some decent tablets these days in a $350 or less range around the same screen size.  I mainly just use it to surf the web and youtube and stuff when im laying in bed.  Dont want an ipad.

I like the Fire HD 10 which replaced my Nexus 7.

The one thing you don’t want

This. As someone very heavily invested in Google's ecosystem and primarily uses a windows PC, there still just isn't a great reason to avoid the iPad. It's just a class above the competition. I have some hope that Chromebook tablets will become a real challenger, but that's a few years away at least. The amount of quality tablet ready software on the iPad is just categorically different than with Android tablets.

When I want a cheapo tablet the fire line is good, and you can find Samsung Galaxy Tabs under $200 which are solid

 

personally since PC's finally got the tablet features right and now do so under $400 it's a tough sell for me to go back to normal tablets

I didn't know you could install Google Play Services on it.

FireOS is merely Android customized by Amazon, so it's not hard to add back what they deliberately don't include..  I guess Amazon and Google had a falling out or Amazon wants you to rely solely on their App Store.

I tried doing that and I couldn't get the app to work. It just instantly crashes every time I try to use it.
