About 6 weeks ago I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A with 7' screen, about 4.25"
x 7.25" running Android 5.1.1, has 8GB of storage (and a slot for a microSD
card) cost (on special) $99. I wanted a basic tablet for my trip to Panama
that would be cheap enough that if something bad happened to the tablet I
would be annoyed, not heartbroken. This tablet will pair up with blue tooth
keyboards / mice so I could (and did) type things up in Panama. In summary,
not the greatest tablet out there, but perfectly adequate for my purposes
at a price I was happy with. Worth considering and MIGHT be right for you...

All the best,
