This isn't to start any kind of a war, genuine advice to anyone who wants to take it.

Don't keep wasting money on lousy Android tablets - collect it together and buy an iPad.

I have used Android phones since the early days of Smart Phones, and have never, and probably will never, use an iPhone.

So, when it came to buying a tablet, I was determined to avoid iPad and stick to an Android one.

I tried around 5 or 6, each time buying high and selling low (in other words, I wasted quite a bit of cash), and was always disappointed with battery life, audio, slow OS updates and various other issues.

In the end I gave up and bought an iPad, and it became clear very quickly why it is considered the World's best.

I now try and have the most up to date iPad (currently have a 10.5" Pro), and because they hold their value so well, the upgrades are relatively cheap too.

Again, didn't want to start an Android vs iOS debate, just thought others may learn from my mistakes - I don't make many!

Is a nice tablet. Recommended.
Shame about the 2Gb RAM, good price though compared to usual
Is this better than the Acer Iconia one that Tesco have on offer? Looking for a cheap tablet and not sure which is best..

I like Huawei, they make decent phones, but specs wise I would go for this:

Thanks, I'll have a look at this one.

Fair comment, but do you mind telling us how much you spent on the ipad pro vs each (make/model and price please) of Android tablets.

For the price of 1 ipad pro, I bet you could get three android tablets, and yes the ipad maybe slightly quicker and slick when using it, but can you get showbox, mobdro, kodi, fildo etc?

Sorry, I should have been clearer.

My original iPad was a mini that I paid around £200 for - the 10.5 Pro is a fairly recent purchase.

I previously had a Samsung Tab 2 10.1, a Samsung Tab S 8.4 and Nexus 9, along with some cheaper ones (Lenovo etc.)

I have installed Kodi (which admittedly is more difficult than on an Android device) and there are similar equivalents for Showbox etc. available.

I guess what I was trying to say was instead of buying a couple of tablets like this in the £100-£150 price range, it would be much wiser to spend the extra for a £300ish standard iPad, even if it means saving for it.
My Pro has an RRP of £749, so I could have bought around 21 Fire tablets

To be fair though, it really is 21 times better!
Even if the apple experience is good, not everyone has that kind of money to spend. The poster is pointing out a good deal for the money, which is the point of this site.

I fully appreciate that, which is why my advice was to perhaps stop wasting money on poor tablets, that buyers will probably end up replacing pretty soon (at a loss) because they are not very good.

Cheap isn't always good value.
The HUDL2 was the best Android tablet made for the money...

Yep. Mine died recently after going strong for 5 ish years. I bet it's still good, I'd probably have to buy a screen replacement but they're quite expensive from what I could find...

I think you also have to consider usage. E.g. my dad will use a news app, youtube, email, ebay, google maps, google earth plus a little light browsing. That's about it! An ipad would be overkill and that's extra money that could be spent on something else, imho.

I get that some apps are better on ipad, but the apps he will use (and I for that matter) are plenty good enough.

I could be missing something though?

I agree that most Android tablets are garbage. But buying an expensive ipad isn't for everyone for the following reasons:-
-Some want an OLED screen. For them, a second hand Samsung Tab S2 can be bought from CeX for around £180 or new for £230.
-Some only have a maximum of £70 to spend. For them, a second hand Nexus 7 2013.
-If you want all the bells and whistles but not iOS, consider Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus, Huawei Mediapad M3 8.4 or Asus Z500? All can be picked up for less than £200.

Could you link to Huawei Mediapad M3 8.4 offers for less than £200? All I can find is the 8" Light version <£200

I picked one up in the USA recently for £142 on New Egg. In the UK, you can get one from CeX for £200. I'm talking about the full fat version, not the lite.

Thank you, I'm in no hurry, I'll be in NYC in May.
9.4" vs 10.1"
Mono speaker vs Dual Dolby Atmos

Other than that, yes they are quite similar.
Never seen a point in non-cellular tablets
bought before Xmas for £100, and to be honest, the build feels quality, good size screen for the price, but I'm quite disappointed with the performance.......

I'm the opposite, I'd never bother with a cellular tablet, I have my phone if I'm out and about and if I'm some where outside the home with a tablet, hotel, holiday etc it almost always has WiFi and if it didn't I would just knock up a WiFi hotspot in 30 seconds.

That's the beauty of products I suppose, we all had different needs and requirements.
