This is my current tablet: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TR05L9Y/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
“Lenovo TAB2 A10-10.1” Tablet (ARM Cortex A53 Quad-Core, FHD IPS, 2GB SDRAM, 16GB SSD"
Upgraded to Android 6.0
I bought this about two years back, paid about $150 on sale. A friend recommended it, and it’s served me pretty well. I feel like it’s a bit slow for my use, which is play music and surf at the same time (Spotify & Firefox) . I opened a thread here several weeks back, and got some help on that front. Sped things up a bit, still find it much slower than surfing on my desktop. Even just surfing alone feels sluggish.
Been stuck in bed for three months, and my poor tablet has been running nearly 24/7 all that time. Playing music, rain/train videos on YouTube to help me sleep, surfing like a fiend, watching movies on friend’s Plex servers, etc. Might watch some Netflix soon…anything to carry my mind away from this room.
So you see this thing has been working overtime, and according to the doctors I’ve got a few more months before I rejoin society at large. My tablets battery life is down to less than half what it was when I bought it. It gets rather warm/hot at times, and every so often the screen flickers with another image I can’t make out, but seems to have nothing to do with what I’m doing at the time.
I thought I should line up a candidate or two for my next tablet, in case this one dies on me. My phone isn’t great for doing a lot of… Anything, really. I don’t want to be researching anything in detail with that, so here I am.
I’m looking for something in the ten inch range, and of equal speed/power or better, and I’d like to keep it around or under $200. I could try to pick up another one of these, but I might as well see if I can spend my money on a tablet suited for 2018 rather than 2016. I know desktop stuff. I don’t know mobile stuff. I have no clue about arm chips, what have you.
Looking for something a little more modern in storage and power than what I have, or something about the same. I’m hoping to line up a couple candidates, one more reasonable in price($150 or less, like th s was) and another a BIT more expensive that will have more speed, if I’m willing/able to bump up my budget.
Thanks, I appreciate any suggestions you may have.
