Guys,

I had an Ipad air 32 GB but the fiancee broke it, how does this compare?
Sorry about the NEWB question.
We tried a Samsung Galaxy Tab E but it was very sluggish and returned it

Thanks in advance
You get what you pay for. These are entry level tablets.
If you're looking for an Android tablet that compares in speed to the iPad Air, look for the tab s2, zenpad 3s, mediapad m3, shield tablet, or something similar. Even the tab A will be faster than the tab E.

100% - these are entry level tablets. That said - best you can buy for under $100 IMO.

If you downgrade to this tablet, coming from the Ipad Air, you may soon find yourself without a "fiancee".
Or, if you already tied the knot and now you give her this tablet as a gift, she will scratch your "retina"Face With Tears Of Joy.

have 2 7 and 8 but think the 8 inch is best bang for buck great tab for kids.

Its a mtk MT8163 Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 with a Mali-T730MP3 gpu with a decent battery.

How is this even possible? they still think a resolution of 1024 x 600 (7) or 1280 x 800 (8) can sell in 2017?

Kobo 7 HD came out in August 2013 and it had 1920 x 1200...
Nexus 7 too, and you could buy it from shop.ca for $100-$150 depending on the number of coupons you found. They're also more powerful than this and still relevant.

Want to get something for my niece just to watch movies on. Do you guys think this or a refurb Arc 7HD would be better?

The Reuters article doesn't mention the Fire tablets.
