Choosing a tablet

by C0tilli0n / July 23, 2016 2:26 PM PDT

Hi guys,

So I decided to buy a tablet. I don't really know much about tablets, so any advice would be useful.

- what am I gonna used it for?
Mainly movies, music, internet, maybe some video editing apps, I am not sure about this yet, but it might come in handy

- windows or android?
I have a windows phone and my first option is windows os for tablet. Do I need antivirus for both operating systems? Also, windows store doesn't have as many apps as android, but I don't think I will use to many apps other than the important ones.

- screen size
I prefer not to small, I don't want 7" screen size, preferably 10 ".

- wi-fi and 3g
I think it's good to have both features

- price?
between 100 - 180 euro ( 110 - 200 $)

Thanks in advance. Ask any questions, maybe I forgot to mention something.

better raise your price

you will need to spend more than that if you are considering windows and 3g tablets unless you want an off brand one or older models.

IMO, windows will need antivirus and android won't unless you are going to download and install apps from third party.

Though you may be able to do some simple video editing on a tablet, stick with computers.

most app stores have multiple clones of the same thing so the number of apps in the store makes absolutely no difference.

Older is the option

Yeah. I think I have to go with the older ones, how about this one, Dell Venue 11 Pro 5130 10.8-Inch Tablet? I had a first look on amazon, it's 146 pounds ( 190$ )

I think you can consider a Chinese tablet.
Chinese tablet is cheaper than some famous brand tablet.
You may be get one which can almost meet your all requirements with 100 - 180 euro. Happy
Good luck
