Be mad to buy this over an ipad for similar money

Can you get:
Showbox on ipad?
Kodi on ipad?
Fildo on ipad?
Memory card expansion on ipad?

Personally I think you'd be mad to buy an ipad over this.

Apple are too domineering.

I think most people prefer to have a tablet that lets you install and do what you like with it, without needing a jailbreak.

I bought the 10" M2 last year when cheap and I have been very happy with it. My only disappointment with it was the support had ended and so on a low version of Android never ot be updated and did not find much in way of rooting support.

I bought one end last year when on offer to replace a dead Hudl2. Responsive, nice screen and sound. The Cost:Performance ratio is excellent compared to many tablets. Battery lasts much better than I anticipated.

Performance of this is very similar to the gpad 8.3 I have from 2013. Compared to an ipad of similar money to this it cannot even compare, that coming from an android fan. Android tablets have been stagnant for a long time and only apple appear to be pushing the format

It does come with an adapter though (usb-c to 3.5mm)

My dad recently purchased one when it was £320 and by all accounts it's a really great tablet.

However, my biggest issue is the storage. Tablets in 2018 should be coming with 64gb at a minimum, preferably 128gb. After the operating system is on, including essential apps, he had around 20gb to play with. I had a few films I wanted to load on for him to watch on holiday and I ended up drastically reducing this as he couldn't find the memory card he had in time.

I was also going to buy the M5, to replace the Nexus 7 (2013 model) but it only has the exact same storage which is ridiculous.

So if anyone knows of a high end tablet with serious storage let me know. I know the M5 has a 64gb variant but I'd prefer a 128gb as a minimum.

I do not have anything against those adaptors, but what I cannot accept is that you cannot charge the tablet whilst listening to music or listen a movie through your headphones (in the travelling type scenario).

Valid point. One can only hope this isn't a trend we're going to continue seeing. I think OnePlus should start releasing tablets. They seem to prefer keeping 3.5mm jacks in their products of which they are pretty decent.
This is a good price for a decent Android tablet, though that's a pretty low bar. I recently experimented with ditching my iPad (especially so I could find cheaper alternatives for other members of the family) but it really highlighted how stagnant and, in some cases, downright terrible the Android tablet market has become. It also demonstrated how far ahead Apple have pulled, especially with their in-house chip development and no need to rely on the likes of Qualcomm.

You have to compare them, irrespective of operating system, as they effectively perform the same functions. People are quick to dismiss a Mac as overpriced/underpowered and insist on buying/building a PC. The same rule has to apply here whether you like it or not – heaven forbid the iPad may actually be better than an Android tablet. Anyone anti-Apple are willing to dish it out on HUKD and beyond, so don't just tell people to 'shut up' when they're making a valid point about something costing hundreds of pounds.

The A10 chip in the new 2018 iPad absolutely destroys the Snapdragon in this. It's also not just about the hardware – apps are generally much better on iOS, especially on tablets where Android has always suffered from lots of blown-up phone apps. This is only going to get worse as the market is stuck in the doldrums and even Google is switching to Chrome OS on tablets. There's just no incentive to develop rich tablet apps for Android right now.

It's also running Android 7.0 Nougat which is already old, from mid-2016, and it's a complete lottery whether it will receive an update to Oreo, never mind Android P. Even the iPad Air, a 5-year old device, will receive the latest iOS 12 update. The EMUI skin on top of this is also questionable – I hated it when I used to own a Huawei P7 phone as it has ridiculously aggressive power management and a refusal to allow certain apps to stay awake for notifications (Gmail being the most prominent one).

You can if you jailbreak. These are all (mainly) apps for dodgy streaming though. If you pay for content (Netflix, Spotify, NOW TV, Sky Go/BT etc) or aren't interested in this, it's irrelevant. As for the memory card expansion, this Huawei only allows the microSD for files, not app storage, so it's fairly limited anyway. I've been using a little USB Wi-Fi thing for years that allows me to locally stream terabytes to an iPad, so it's not such a big deal as you might think.

You can call it "mad" if you want to buy an iPad over this, despite the fact the latest lowest priced model has a significantly faster processor, far more third-party accessory support, a better app ecosystem, Pencil/inking input capability and guaranteed hardware and software support for the next five years.

Personally, I'd question the sanity of spending £220 on a device with a terrible processor, an already outdated version of Android with a bloatware skin on top, no guarantee of future updates and a tablet ecosystem that currently seems dead in the water. That's not to say this isn't a good device – it is, one of the best in its class for the price – but there are significant drawbacks to choosing this or any other premium Android tablet based on a stubborn "anything but Apple" mentality.

My bad. Is it really necessary nowadays. Yes I think so. This trend has introduced by apple and all other manufacturers has start to follow. I have no clue
This is a fantastic tablet, especially the sound quality. Only thing worth noting is there is no multi user support, which is strange given that it's stock Android

So you have to give up your manufacturer warranty to get the apps you want, rather than simply downloading them?

In reference to the updates, yes you can get apple updates which will slow down your ipad making it useless or you could just download a decent antivirus app on android, I know which I'd prefer.

As for steaming, can you just stream from your ipad to a smart TV, or does it have to be an apple TV, or your ipad requires another dongle (which is an extra cost) and who wants something hanging off your tablet.

Same with the memory, for around £25 I can add 128 gb card nice and neat inside the tablet, how much would it cost for you to add that to an ipad and you'll have an ugly device hanging off your tablet, it's a bit like chavs who add stick on spoilers to their Nissan micra, it just looks crap.
The 32gb is plenty for app storage, photos/music/films can easily go on your MicroSD card, and if you're desperate for extra app storage use an app called apps2SD.

I'm not doubting that apple make good quality devices, but their limited restrictive software is their downfall, I know plenty of apple fans owners of their phones, whom buy an android phone/tablet for the benefits that android offer, but I don't know any people with android devices that buy apple phone/tablet as well, why would you need to?

Of course not. If you need service, just do a System Restore via iTunes before taking it in. Jailbreaking isn't permanent, you know.

> In reference to the updates, yes you can get apple updates which will slow down your ipad making it useless or you could just download a decent antivirus app on android, I know which I'd prefer.

Please. I know someone running the current iOS11 on a 5-year-old iPad Air with 1Gb RAM and it's no powerhouse but it's still more responsive than some of the jerky, laggy garbage on current Android tablets. And antivirus? Don't need it on iOS so that's one less system resource hogging up the background.

> As for steaming, can you just stream from your ipad to a smart TV, or does it have to be an apple TV, or your ipad requires another dongle (which is an extra cost)

Uhhh...yes you can. I stream from my iPad to a Samsung Smart TV as well as a Chromecast and Roku. I don't own an Apple TV as I don't need or want one. As for dongles - don't need one, but handy for when you want to hardwire HDMI to a TV in, say, a hotel room. Can't do that on the MediaPad or most Android tablets as almost all of them have no HDMI-out or MHL support. Off the top of my head:

iPad - Chromecast, Roku, AirPlay, HDMI and VGA (via adapter)
MediaPad - Chromecast, Roku

So the iPad offers more connectivity options - who knew?

> for around £25 I can add 128 gb card nice and neat inside the tablet, how much would it cost for you to add that to an ipad

Cheapest decent quality (SanDisk, Samsung) Class 10 128gb card on Amazon right now is £30 - great for media, can't be used (officially) for apps (which would be slow as molasses off a microSD anyway - been there, done that). It costs £90 more to bump up to 128gb internal storage on the iPad - so, yes, your solution is cheaper but it's also restricted. The iPad storage can be used to add apps, games etc and is much faster.

If all you want is more storage without anything "hanging off your tablet" as you put it, get a Verbatim MediaShare Wireless for around £35 which allows you to add SD cards, hard drives - terabytes worth if you must - over WiFi.

> I'm not doubting that apple make good quality devices, but their limited restrictive software is their downfall

Apple currently has 66% of the entire worldwide tablet market. Some downfall. gs.statcounter.com/ven…ide
