SuperEd

Image added, thanks for the report

i purchased this yday Your text here does anyone know which represents the best value for money? it has 32gb and a better screen but on the down side is refurbished

I only want Samsung Tab S 10.5.

I am using LG Gpad 8.4 inch.

I prefer a tablet with a very good screen.

This would have been perfect for my daughter but out of stock near me. Do you know of any other similar to this, not windows ones though?

Have you tried ordering it on free delivery instead of picking up in-store then? Also there are black and silver available worth checking stock on both.

2GB of RAM apparently, not bad for the money really!

Just a reality check on Asus tablets (having owned the tf101 which was the best Android tablet Asus ever made)...
They are not built well
Are built in short production runs with mixed quality components
Do not receive updates to new versions of Android (maybe one, if Asus can do it easily)
Are plagued with charging issues
Have limited, if any, development work done at XDA

This from 4 years experience at transformerforums where I am a resident forum admin...

can you install windows on this

many bad reviews on Amazon.com



3 1/2 out of 5, 42% 5 stars, 23% 4 stars....thats not terrible

Not bad for the money, Asus don't seem great at updates but any cheap table other that Nexus devices seem poor for updates (Samsung etc... then the chinese, Argos own brand, very unlikely).

All relative to how much people want to spend.

​honestly don't buy a Windows tablet with 1gb ram absolutely rubbish!

I have this tablet, think it's really good! brilliant for browsing, good screen and front facing speakers. everything works great on it for me!

I'd never think about a Windows tablet, just answering the question.... I've got the Asus tablet ordered after trying it out in Currys.

Yes, but what about this one? Is it worth getting?


If you only have the budget for a sub £100 tablet, then possibly. But I would probably try to spend less money and get the Amazon Fire tablet or something similar like the Lenovo 8" model Argos had for £50 recently.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a 10" tablet at this sort of price.


Edited by: "janner43" 29th Nov 2015

By the way, 35% of reviews for this model on amazon.com are 3 or less. It gets 3.5/5

If you get a "good one" you should be OK, but you will be stuck on the shipped Android 5.0.2 for ever. If you get a poor one, then it will be more hassle than it is worth.

Man same here only want ​Samsung Tab S 10.5

cheap sd card for anyone that needs it for the tablet! I've had a 128th one in before and it worked fine if anyone was wondering

I've owned asus tablets previously...never again had last one repaired on manufacturer warranty by asus and even the repair was poor standards and returned covered in the engineers dinner...that happened twice...very poor.

That is exactly what I am in need of. A 10 inch tablet for the old man. Nothing fancy by any means. Facebook, youtube and browsing on something that he doesn't have to squint for. Happy to pay a bit more but not huge amount more; I think it be wasted on him.

Any recommendations? Lenovo A10?

Cheers

Ordered 3 for family! Xmas is sorted ^-^

The A10 is a good buy, yes, but a fair bit more money. I'd personally say that any of the budget OEM stuff from Asus or Samsung are not great. If it has fo be a 10" model then I'd go for something like...
10.1" Inch Android 4.4 Quad Core Dual Camera Tablet PC Free Keyboard Bundle 32GB on Ebay for between £50-£60

Yes, I know all the negatives. But look at the price, the package and the value.

Alternatively, go for a refurbished device from Argos on Ebay. They have an Asus tf103 for £65, a Lenovo A10 for £85. Both with 12 months warranty.

The only Android tablet I would ever buy would be one of the Nexus range. The Nexus 9 is £170 ish if you look hard... somewhere like this...
ebay.co.uk/itm…719
again with a full 12 month warranty.

I'd also never buy an Asus tablet again, my Nexus 7 tablet had to be sent back to Asus for repair three times to fix a basic hardware problem.

The a10 is less ram and an older version. Of android? What pluses over this does it have?

very poor DPI. I would rather a smaller sharper screen then a large fuzzy one.

It's not fuzzy at all... I'd recommend trying it out in store, screen looks great watching movies on it

Better build quality, better components. But hey, its your money - I'm just giving you my opinion. I have had Asus, Motorola, Lenovo, Samsung and the only one I have kept is the Motorola. Kept it because of the build quality and the component quality. Not that I am impressed with Android any more... too many issues with fragmentation, security, performance. Chromebooks - great devices and OS. iPads - great devices and OS. Just so you understand I am no fanboy. I am very familiar with Linux & all mobile OS. However, I make an exception for Windows - I haven't been near that OS for over 10 years. Its just too poor for words, takes far too much time just to keep it running smoothly without slowing down and malware free...

Honestly I was surprised at the build quality for asus its much better than my budget Motorola devices... time will tell, brilliant at the moment but two months down the line maybe ill agree!

Item showing as £149.99 needs to be expired

Got mine delivered this weekend, not really impressed find it a bit sluggish with the standard free kids games/apps etc, build quality is good though.

Any ideas what the Currys return policy will be like now that I have opened it ? Would rather pay more for another tablet.

​I thought the same when I first got it, have you ran all of the Asus updates ??? use the clean tool to disable start up apps and get rid of all the junk left from installations. works a lot better afterwards. I'm running football manager really fast now, just longish loading times when first opening games

thanks Chris will give it a try.

In case anyone is interested, I bought the Lenovo A10-70 from Argos for £100. So far so good. Fast enough for most applications and build quality seems decent for the price. Good sound from the stereo speakers. There is no official lollipop update but I have seen some unofficial roms. May give this a go in the future but for now, all ok.

Bought a nice folio case for £8 and the old man is happy.
