Decent camera will be a struggle. Quite rightly tablets donít have great cameras .

Iíd go for either the aging but still capable samsung galaxy tab a or the huawei mediapad m5 lite.

I have had a lot of samsung tablets in my time but currently use the bigger brother of the huawei for streaming movies and itís excellent.

They are similar in terms of process/storage etc. The M5 lite has a slightly clearer screen, much better battery.

Itís also LTE, the T5 is on 3G which isnít god enough at all for streaming anymore.

So basically M5 over T5?

Can you fit a data SIM to an M5?

I bought one of these last year.

It's excellent, high spec and you could buy 6 with your budget.

Old boot 3G and wifi are two different things.

YEs you can put a sim in an M5 Lite. Get the LTE version. LTE is basically 4G

I can't look any further than Samsung tbh, I've had a Galaxy Tab A for a few years and its brilliant. Does everything I need it to quickly, and the battery life is incredible!

I bought lesser known brands for the kids and they are nowhere near as good. (Huawei)

£199 in currys at the moment and worth every penny.

Yes you do. But you also need to ensure you get a 4g/LTE enabled tablet. A lot of tablets, especially android ones, are wifi only

You shouldnít usually need a separate data sim. Why not just tether your tablet to your mobile and use its internet connection instead. Saves paying for two lots of data that you wonít get the best out of

The Huawei is probably the way to go, but although older tech the Samsung S2 Tab is a gorgeous piece of kit still. Super thin and a beautiful AMOLED screen.

You may be better off waiting until Black Friday, or search on Hotukdeals.

I would certainly wait for Black Friday now if you are looking for a Christmas present. Identify the tablet (and any alternatives) you want and use 3xCamel to track the prices on Amazon.

Also if you want a really cheap tablet for teh kids the Amazon Fire tabs are cheap as owt and often get big discounts on Black Friday.

As a long time owner of the Fire HD10 I'd always point people towards them if they are remotely tech-savvy. I say this because you can easily add the Google services to them or, if you're a bit of a geek like me, completely wipe the OS and install a version of Lineage OS for the full Google experience (if this post has lost you don't worry about it, if you'd like to know more then search fore the Fire HD10 on xda-developers).

The 2017 version of the HD10 has a full hd screen and should be discounted quite heavily as the updated 2019 version is now out.

I donít think the OP is techy. Heíd find the fire too restrictive compared to a vanilla android tablet like the Huawei.

Greenandblack I think I've asked you this before but have you found any problems with this yet?

I'm thinking of getting one for the lad for him to mess about with.

EBD - it's fine. I've had it for 13 months now with no problems. Mine has an octacore processor, I think the latest models have decacore processors.

I don't use it a great deal but battery life is good - I guess I use it about 4 hours a week. I charge it about every two weeks. It has enough storage space for apps and downloaded content.

The case isn't as good as Samsung or Apple but it's a fraction of the price.

Screen quality is excellent and it's super fast.

Nothing that I could complain about.

Thanks mate. I've bought one. At that price it can go on the bin if its rubbish.

Was the one you linked the same seller you used?

Sorry old boot. If you want to put a data sim you need to make sure itís an ďLTEĒ tablet. Itíll say in the box or they will help you in store. If it doesnít say let there will be nowhere to put a data sim.
