    Which Tablet?

    Ok so my missus really wants a tablet but doesnt want to spend much on it.

    I'm thinking not more than 130 max

    Specs: minimum 9" screen / dual core / 1gb ram pref 2gb / storage min 4gb / mini usb port for dongle / play store / android 4 or above

    I'm thinking for this price there's going to have to be some loss of speed or screen quality - if I buy one and either of these isn;t up to scratch I'll get it in the neck!
    She will mainly be browsing web, facebook etc......

    I've been looking and found some unknown/non branded one's but not too sure if worth the punt - anyone have any ideas or bought a cheap tablet that is good?

    Gemini joy tabs are ok mines that best low end tablet I've had yet bit slow and so so screen but it plays candy crush and angry birds starwars 2 ok. Mines the older 7" version

    it also has the play store (big must have)

    this isn't mine but a newer bigger one so it might be better?

    I bought a couple of Scroll Extreme II tablets for some of the children here to use for a little over 100 each but the difference between them and my Nexus 10 is immense. I have had probelems with all of them losing WiFi connection, not syncing time and date correctly, the touch screen does not always respond to gestures and I keep having to reset them. Maybe there are better models out there but my thoughts would be to spend more and get a quality device. My girlfriend has asked me the same question and I'm probably going to encourage her to get the new Nexus 7 for 200

    Old model Nexus 7's are now retailing around 150. Slightly out of budget but IMO an excellent quality small tablet.

    CnM from Argos. My son has one and it works fine. Check with the cheapo ones that they can access the play store as not all can.Buy CnM 9.7 Inch 8GB Touchpad Tablet at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for Tablets.
