Help me find a tablet!

Post by Darkstar One »

I need a tablet. Between 8 and 9 inches, with FHD (1080p) or better screen.

It's got to be in new condition.
It can't be a Kindle Fire 8 or 8 Plus (they have issues with PDF's)
It can't be an iPad mini (I don't feel like spending that kind of money).

Is there anything around that fits what I'm looking for? If so I haven't been able to find it.

I have a Lenovo Tab M8 that's served me well. It's a few years old so they probably have a newer model out.

They don't make them that small with 1080p screens. Generally, anything 8 inches or smaller is 1280x800. You basically need a 10 inch to get over 1080p, like Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite which is 2000x1200 in 10.4 inches.

You MAY be able to find Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite, which is 1920x1200, but it may need some Android Updates.

Lenovo's equivalent is Smart Tab M10 FHD (1920x1200) with Android 9 (NOT the Tab M10)
