Looking for a new non-iPad tablet

Posted on Jan 20, 2024

Dear Lazyweb,

I’m looking for recommendations for a non-iPad tablet, which I imagine means Android. The requirements are not very specific - at least 200dpi, around 10", under £300 (would like under £200). Ideally I would be able to run upstream Android, but I realise that this is unlikely to be possible without buying a Google Pixel tablet.

The Amazon Fire HD tablets would probably be fine in most respects, except that I don’t believe that it’s possible to get rid of the Amazon advertising skin any more (I grabbed a refurb Fire HD 10 to try, and the approach using adb to delete packages now fails), and I find it quite annoying.

Something like the HONOR Pad X9 or Lenovo Tab P11 look better, but I don’t see any non-fluff reviews.

Use is ePub (non-Amazon) reading, web browsing, a little light Home Assistant, occasionally video when travelling. No games.

Any suggestions?
