That's not what you actually said even though it may be what you actually meant.
I specifically said that.

In any case read my subsequent sentence, "In any case it doesn't matter." It still doesn't matter. Your attempt to sue Robbers will fail.

No thanks. I'm using mine as a paperweight right now. It's very nice.

Lol gl buddy. I love my g pad 3 tho :). I got an Xperia xa1 ultra for a good deal as well, but the g pad's LCD is top notch. Still using it and hotspotting from my phone when out and about lol

How does this stack up against the Samsung Galaxy Tab E (8")? Both are available on Kijiji etc. for around the same price, generally by people who got them as part of a cellular data deal.

I need to replace my existing (aging) Android tablet in this size range and don't use tablets enough to justify getting another Rolls-Royce model. Just wondering where the best bang-for-the-buck is in inexpensive tablets.

Honestly? This tablet wipes the floor of the tab e. Faster cpu, more ram, better GPU, twice the screen resolution that's also an ips laminated display vs TFT of the tab e, plus a tough and scratch resistant dragontrail glass and I don't even know if the tab e is getting nougat

I would definitely take this over a tab e

Ya just looking at the specs sheet it's obvious that the tab E is significantly slower. Less RAM slower processer and GPU lower resolution (which matters on an 8 inch device).

It apparently has 7.1 tho lol, whereas the G Pad is stuck @ 7.0. Still I hope the G pad 3 gets Oreo!

Would this be a good option for school age children?

Looking for a tablet option for school programs (abc mouse, math prodigy, etc)

Something they can grow into and eventually load other apps: Facebook, Netflix, etc.

My daughter uses it for ABC mouse all the time and loves it. Has the odd glitch here and there but overall works well for it

Cool, thanks.

Is there any other tablet I should be looking at? Obviously Ipad is in the running, but I don't have a Mac computer and I don't know if the price tag is justifiable.
