I’m using the Roon control app – that is “Roon Remote”? – on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 with 32 Gb of RAM and Android 7 (I think). As I’ve posted before, I have intermittent problems with slow operation and album art not showing. I am considering a new tablet.
I want to keep the price down. My existing tablet is 3.5 yrs old, and it irks me to replace it. (How wasteful tech is, with phones and tablets more powerful than mainframes of my youth discarded every 2-4 years!) I use the tablet only for Roon Remote, BubbleUPnP, and a few other things ancillary to my audio system. In other words, it’s a glorified remote control.
My two ideas are
- Lenovo Tab M Plus (2 gen.) with 4 Gb RAM,128 Gb internal storage, and Android “P” for $250
- Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 with 3 Gb RAM, 64 Gb storage, and Android “Q” for $280
I have no idea how to compare the processors.
I know there are better tablets for $600-$700, but I can’t make myself do it – especially since vendors stop providing software updates after a couple of years.
Anyone here tried either of those tablets and have good or bad impressions? Other suggestions in the same range would be welcome.
