Even the latest Tab S6 stock is not available anywhere (That used to be selling for 60k and people still got it because of corona n online classes confused)
Also Tab S6 Lite (Recent launch)…i can hardly see it instock on amazon.in/croma/RD…its selling like Hot cakes (Pre-order offers were much better..galaxy buds @ 3k and case @ 50% OFF)

Tab S6 Lite is a pathetic device, it cant even handle basic browsing. if you open 2-3 tabs it lags/hangs(thanks to Exynos).

Best to get a 32" smart tv and connect your phone to it over wifi or casting.

I have two of the A3 one I bought 8 months back and another I had bought 3 years back.

Both under 10k. The display is not HD or amoled but 10 inch good for watching SD content .

The best part is the ram it has a 3 gb and a 4gb ram option.

Battery is decent , except IPad no tab survives after a full movie.

S5e easily does between 10-15 hours on battery. Samsung S series historically have been pretty good in this aspect.

It shouldn’t really considering Exynos 9611 is almost equivalent to SD660 on paper at least. The limited RAM (4GB only?) coupled with OneUI might share a greater burden of the blame. Once the physical memory is near used up, swapping occurs which would result in noticeable lags. Samsung has been a big proponent of ZRAM/ZSWAP for years now. My old Redmi Note 3 with the lower performing SD650 can easily hold 7-8 tabs. And with just 3GB RAM tabs do reload but there’s no lag apparent. Anyways thanks for the info. I have now dropped it from my shortlist. There doesn’t seem to be any custom ROM development for it unlike S5e. So it can’t be fixed either. Since S5e looks to be unattainable the entry-level ipad looks to be only viable choice. Rumours point to the upcoming ipad Air to launch at a less expensive price point.

Lenovo Tab M10 looks impressive , do this tablet has some lower variant….and at what price could I expect this in diwali sale???? Btw thanks for the info

Be careful while buying Lenovo Tabs.software is most of the times buggy and unstable..No offence to Lenovo fanboys. This is basis my personal experience with lenovo tab and one Lenovo phone. For me lenovo other than laptops is straight NoNo..

Amazon is releasing all its products (kindle, echo, etc) one by one in India. We need them to bring the Fire HD 8 & 10 tablet series as well. I have 3, got them from UK through a friend, been using for about a year now and they’re performing very well for around 12k-15 price. Great build, FHD screen, decent sound and battery backup. And installing Playstore and then Google apps is very easy.

I have an ipad mini with s/w 9.3.5. Most apps are not supported anymore, and just have to rely on few apps. can someone point out how to jailbreak it? Not a very tech savy guy, so appreciate any help here. Don’t want to make it a paper weight.

No way. Kindles are too small (10" is the bare minimum whereas even the top end Oasis is only 7") , too slow (dual-core only) , too memory limited (512MB,don’t know if it’s been upgraded for the latest Oasis 3 but its too expensive in any case). Also the software isn’t particularly good at handling PDFs.

Try it yourself.. Read article and go though youtube videos..

I used to jailbreak devices when I used to get them from US..

Its been sometime now.. But if you are stuck at anything I would love to help… But start exploring.

Also make a different thread to talk about its progress

Login to your apple account from a latest ios device. Then purchase any app. Once you have that app. Go back to ipad and open app store. You can download older version of that app from Purchased section.

Buy ipad this august 6 if final prices are between 18 – 20k. Past two years have noticed only during this time ipad prices are so low. And the best part is you will get updates four to five years. Buy 2019 or 20 model based on discount.

Resolution/Quality matters…not the screen size!

Brands are least bothered about tablets these days
There are very few options (if iPads are excluded) and also there is stock issue (due to corona/Online classes)

PS: Can expect few tablet deals from lenovo/honor/alcatel during sale days but none excited me
Honor Pad 5 4G (4+64) seems like a nice option but then it is only 8" (Would suggest min 10" for better multimedia experience)
https://www.amazon.in/HONOR-20-3cm-8-inch-Glaci...

Then there’s Samsung TabA 10.1 (3+32GB WIFI) for ~15k
Not a bad option but it might lag at times (Screen is LCD & exynos processor equivalent to SD 636)

Finally Lenovo Tab M10 // Currently @ 20k //
FHD+ Display, 4+128GB ram+storage option, Dual Speakers + Dolby Atmos
But it is mediatek P22T (Performance is comparable to SD 626*)
https://www.amazon.in/Lenovo-Tab-M10-FHD-Plus/d...

I bought Samsung tab A.. very laggy and disappointing experience. My cousin has a 3 yrs old Lenovo tablet that’s so much better and it was cheaper than my Samsung too sad
