    I haven't had a decent tablet in forever but I am now looking at getting one . I've seen the lenovo with in built projector that looks quality but a little expensive . So what would people recommend primarily for movies and browsing. With some elearning for work.

    My last tablet never got used cos it was so slow . My fault for not getting advice and going with a bargain .

    Open to any suggestions while I weigh up options

    I got my son one of the Lenovo Tab 2 models from Argos for about £75 and for the price I've been really impressed with it.

    RAM is limited, but at the same time, if you only want to browse and watch films etc, you'll hardly notice. He doesn't have any issues with the games he plays (Minecraft PE mainly) and the battery seems to last for an age.

    One of the boys at work has the 10" variant of the same tab as me and is also impressed with it.

    What's your budget?

    I'd say around £160 but I could go up to a little depending on options. My refund on my note 7 is due back anytime.

    I was actually looking at a 10inch lenovo a10-70f tab 2 this morning on amazon . It does look a nice tablet.

    That, or the Shield K1 tablet (I can't decide if I want better performance and a smaller screen or lesser spec, but bigger screen) are what I'm looking to get myself around Black Friday or in the Xmas sales.

    Your budget is roughly the same as mine and in that range, I don't think you'll find much better specs tbh.

    I appreciate the advice and thanks for pointing that one out. I'll take a good look at both and like you see what the sales do black Friday .

    Your budget is quite generous, if you don't mind expanding it a bit more you should look at Samsung tablets, those are well built devices with solid battery life.

    The amount of RAM and screen resolution are too low for today's standard, it was what I got with my Nexus 7 in 2012, four years ago.

    10 inches is to big. Have you looked at smaller ones? 10 inch is basically a laptop.

    Size is relative. Depends on what each individual finds comfortable.

    I think this is a much better device from Argos, bit more expensive though.

    10 inch Acer Iconia Tab10. Double the storage of the Lenovo, IMO 16GB internal is just not enough in a modern Android device these days especially if you like apps and games, better screen resolution(full HD), and Android 6.0 Marshmallow as opposed to 5.1. And it's still a reputable brand. Although it is MediaTek MTK processor, if you're into custom ROMs and modding, this is probably not so good.

    Or... You can ask the opinions of people on Android forums... Telling people just to 'Google it' really isn't helpful!

    The point of forums is to get advice from people directly with the knowledge. If you think Google is key I don't see the point in you being here. People have given excellent advice and given loads to mull over.

    I've just picked up a 7" tab2 from our local ASDA (for less than the price of a crate of Beer)... mainly to run office365 and associated apps on it... perfomance wasn't bad, but you really notice the memory struggling when you have multiple apps open, and encrypting it may not have been the best way to get performance our of it.

    Don't think Santa will be delivering tablets in our house this year, but very interested to see what people are looking at in the UK at the moment.

    Does that price include shipping to the UK, where the OP lives? ;)
