(Nov 2017, Australian prices AUD$)
Looking for a new Tablet here:
Budget: ~AUD$200-$300 (~US$150-$230)
O/S: Android 6 or 7
Screen: ~10" Screen
RAM: 2GB min
Storage: Prefer 32GB (16GB min), with MicroSD/Card Expansion
No Need for SIM Card / 3G/4G mobile connectivity (only need Wifi)
Primary Uses: Apps, incl. kids, Youtube, movie & other videos
Power: Prefer via MicroUSB rather than dedicated AC Adaptor
Case: will need a suitable case, preferably that folds out into an angled stand for the device
Availability: in or reasonable postage to Australia
Lookin' at:
- Lenovo Tab 3 A10 10.1" 32GB(Storage) 2GB(RAM) Android6.0 WiFi ~$250 (now discontinued)
- Lenovo Tab 4 10 10.1" 16GB(Storage) 2GB(RAM) Android7.0 WiFi ~$300 (sourced locally in Aust.)

- Cube iPlay U83
- Onda V10 Plus 10.1" 32GB(Storage) 2GB(RAM) Android6.0 WiFi ~$220 (tho have heard Onda manufacture quality is doubtful?)

After lookin' at lotsa different sites, models etc., we're most comfortable with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 T580 Black – from eglobaldigitalcameras.com.au AUD$269 + postage (a bit above the budget for a tablet as I was hoping).
My +1 much prefers a better-known/bigger brand, we've had Samsung devices in the past, & don't want to risk disappointment/possible O/S warranty issues with a cheaper Chinese/other one etc.

Nice choice.  The hardware quality of Samsung is pretty good.

I guess I would buy ASUS Zenpad, has a big screen at a low prices and it's solidly built. You can compare prices here: www.compareprices24.co.uk/

I have had really good experiences with Lenovo gear.  Their Tab 2 A10 has turned into a real good unit, so much so that I bought one for the wife.  I do recommend that you buy a BobJgear  holder for it to prevent damage.  Nice size, a little heavier than most by just a tenth of a pound but pleasing to hold and the display is 1080P and very clean and sharp.  Under $180, most places and even better when on sale.
