    My youngest has an Amazon Fire - it was only about 80 USD. Works fine and would buy again.
    Same here though we got ours on buysellswap for 100hkd brand new =)

    Don't consider anything old. I have an old Note 8 pad and that's slow like ****, and it got stuck on Android 4.4 (which isn't that bad). It runs butter after I changed to LineageOS (even latest version runs fine), but the upgrade isn't the most easy one.
    Thanks for the tip on LineageOS. Will give it a shot. Have an old Samsung Note thing at home which takes a minute to respond to a tap.

    Followup to this- I just ordered a couple of Kindles. The Mi Pads look nicer, but they're twice the cost and I'm after largely disposable tablets where I don't care if they get stepped on. Ditto anything from Huawei or Lenovo. And I couldn't be bothered trawling the computer centres for dodgy generics.

    TheBrit and shri like this.

    do they have to all be the same from a support perspective?

    There's no support angle here, they're just kids' toys.

    Wow, that was a blast from the past! I am impressed that it still works.

    I could just get a couple of US100 Amazon Kindle Fire HD8s, which require the side loading of Google Play to become properly usable.
    I have the Amazon kindle - perfect for kids and good price point. There's a few new ones on Carousel selling cheap.

    Considering that Shenzhen is just across the border, there are lots of options on Banggood
