My Father is looking for a new tablet and preferably under 10".


Main use is watching Sky Go and surfing the web so it doesn't have to be a world beater. 


Doesn't seem to be a lot around sub 10" these days - anyone have any options they use for similar or do I start convincing him to stay with the 10"?


Thanks in advance.

He had been using a Lenovo M10 Plus FHD - it won't do Netflix in HD nor will Sky Go work on the device.  Bit nervous to go with another Lenovo as a result - unless someone has some experience with SkyGo working?


Likely leaves just Samsung or no-name tablets from Aliexpress?  Couple of TCL ones on Amazon AU.

Yeah - looking purely at Android devices.  Suspect I'll be telling him to stay with a 10" device and that it will likely be a Samsung.

Interesting - I've been looking at the A9+.  The 128gb version has 8gb ram - bigger device but looks decent value at a glance.  A9 could well be a good option too.  Cheers.
