    Looking to buy a decent sized tablet for the wife.
    Any suggestions?
    Don't want to go over $150....

    For a tablet under $150, staying clear of those dirt cheap, off-brand trash tablets, I'd look into an Amazon Fire:

    Having played around with one recently the FireOS provides your typical touchscreen-focused mobile device user interface and when you dig into the Settings menu the Android underpinnings are quite similar (including a Developer options menu).

    Thanks, svim! I appreciate the response.
    Unfortunately, I couldn't help myself and ordered this from Amazon, along with a $60 Amazon credit.

    Yeah I second the Fire.....but Sammy's Tab A 8"(2019) is selling for $149 pretty much everywhere. It's a decent tablet for the price.

    This will solely be used by my wife, keep in mind, who ONLY watches YouTube videos, shopping sites, and her occasional Hallmark movies, all using our home Wi-Fi.

    I have the Amazon Fire HD 10 tablet and it's pretty useful.

    Day late and a dollar short, I would have recommended the fire tablet.
