What's the best gaming tablet? Ideally something 8 inch but 10 inch is ok. It used to be nvidia shield but it's discontinued. Now the decent choices cost > $500 (samsung or google's). Some chromebooks also have touch screen and can run android games. Are they any good as gaming device? I have a nexus 7 but it is too slow. I play a game call bloon monkey city and in the CT sub-game, when too many objects are moving (above round 40), the game starts to lag. This is a 2-D game. This game on an ipad mini 4 runs smoothly without lag, and this is only a $275 device. But I prefer the UI on android platform. So is there an android tablet for this price that has equivalent performance or better?
