iPads are expensive. I may go to an Android but don't know where to start. Any ideas?
We have a 10 inch LG. Has lasted at least two years. No problems.
What do you use it for?
Mostly Internet, google calendar, kindle app, some bible apps, a few music (guitar) apps. No games. Not a gamer. Except maybe solitaire.
Take a look at a Galaxy Tab; you should be able to get one in the low $200.
thanks the ipad is showing her age
If you want something more high end a Galaxy Tab S3......about $500; you can also get the the Tab S (which I have) & S2 for in the $3-400 range....earlier versions of the S3.
Most of them are made by a very few manufacturers and just swap lables. The boards are a little different...but not enough to matter. High pixel counts are really not worth it for such small screens even though they are highly advertised.
What is important is Wi-Fi access, expansion ports, the type of Bluetooth keyboard that is compatible, sound jacks, and on/off button working smoothly.
Battery life is also essential.
All in all you should be able to get a really nice tablet for under $300 and some peripherals to go with (like portable speaker, headphones, case, or even a keyboard. )
The expansion ports is nice because if it's a micro SD card you can put pictures you just took on your camera or phone on your tablet and get a really good look at them... maybe even do some editing. (Make sure your micro SD card is compatible with the camera/camcorder)
IPads aren't going to have expansion slots for memory.
We were in Israel at the hotel after a full day of sight seeing and watched Netflix on our tablet for some downtime. It was kind of nice.
To augment what JohnDB said, if you are going to use the tablet for pictures then yes look for one with an expansion slot. Though it is also good if you are going to be putting other additional files on it, more than what would fit on the onboard memory. Also, if you buy one from a supplier other than your cell service, more than likely it will be wifi only. Otherwise, you may want to see what tablets are available from your cell phone provider.
Thanks. I have a smart phone. With my tablet/iPad I only need wifi. I never use it otherwise. My phone does all I need in that category.
I had a flip phone. Still do. It makes a great alarm clock!
