I'm in need of a tablet for basic use. Well I don't really need one but I would like to use a cheap tab for travel purposes where it won't hurt my wallet so much if it gets damaged or lost. I have too much important data and info saved on my smartphone which I'm not taking so it makes sense to get a tab of some sort.
I initially had my eye on a cheap Samsung or Lenovo 7'' tab for under 200usd but I found that there are plenty of chinese made tablets that offer better specs for the same, if not lower price available (I'm in HK btw) locally.
Two that I have my eye on are the Onda 820w and teclast X80. Both have similar specs, 8'' screen, around 2gb of ram and 32gb rom for around 100usd. Both also support 128gb cards which is important because I plan on transferring my photo's to the tab via wifi as backup. I won't be gaming (boggle, wordathon and that old fashioned brick game), but I might need to access sites like tripadvisor and airline sites that run java or flash or whatever it's called.
Onda 820w CH- this is the updated version of the old 820w with cherry trail processor but I can't be sure if it has dual boot.
Teclast - Dual boot.
Anyone with experience know how they hold up to the more established brands models with similar specs? I like the idea of dual boot but I'm not sure how useful that would be for my purpose, or if having such feature might slow down the device or increase it's risk of failure.
