Need help finding a decent tablet for a friend

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It needs to be Android with the Google Play store and all that without needing to be hacked onto it like a Kindle Fire or whatever.

Other than that, the cheaper the better but I guess the upper budget limit he has is like $400~? But cheaper would be better, he just wants it to play games on. He won't be a super heavy user.

 

Ideally from Amazon, Newegg, eBay, or even like Best Buy. If it's from a "big name" it won't make him nervous.


I won't know you're talking to me unless you reply/quote me.

Always looking for somebody to play EVE Online with, be it new or old.

Nexus 7? Basic and good. Old, but it's basically what you need when it comes to Android tablets. 


I have the biggest hankering to change my PC to ITX. But I know it's just not worth 250$... Sigh :(

Edit: it's 375$ now and I'm going to do it.

Why does it need to be Android? Is it preference? For $329 Apple makes the best tablet on the market in that price range

Asus Google Nexus 7 16GB Tablet (Gen 2), 7 Inches (Renewed) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B018URWWLE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_0rvnDbQ8NDCC0

 

I think it's fine for basic tablet use, especially since it will probably end up in a drawer somewhere.
