    Hi,

    I'm looking to buy a tablet. Nothing too fancy so thats why my budget is small.
    It just needs to run fairly smoothly and allow me to use youtube/the internet and play the following apps: Netflix, Spotify and Explain Everything (I'm a teacher). I'm willing to spend a bit more if needed.

    If anyone can recommend one based on their experience that would be great.

    Amazon Fire Tablet.

    Most likely the only cheap android tablet on the market that's going to perform even remotely well compared to the more expensive options.

    I would get that but its got Amazon OS so I can't download the app Explain Everything which I need.

    OP
    If you're going to use the tablet to interact with children, then the Tesco Hudl series would be a good place to start looking.

    Otherwise, for your price point, any cheap no-name Android tablet with a decently large screen will have to do. I've had a smaller 7" one from a company whose brand I can't even remember for a year now. I have to say that it has done its tasks (mainly browsing the web and opening Gmail) admirably well.

    For your price point, you could try:

    I would recommend going for a used Lenovo Tab of the market used just for few months and check quality of it. This will work out to be better deal than buying new Tab.
