At the moment I use my iPhone and iPad to control Roon when I’m listening to music on my hifi system. I have an iPad Air M1 with a 10,something" screen. It seems that Roon remote works better on android than apple devices, so I considered getting a “cheap” noname android tablet with a 13" or larger screen. Optimal I would get an iPad Pro 12.9", but as I don’t have a tree in the garden with 100$ note leafs, getting such an expensive tablet for Roon only is out of the question for me. There’s a lot of different choices on Amazon, but It’s hard to buy a tablet solely out of images and specs.
Is anyone using a cheap android tablet with a large screen as a Roon remote? Any recommendations? Amazon.de is my preferred location.

Maybe not as large as you want but a Fire 10HD is hard to beat for the price IMHO.
I can’t say that. I used a Samsung A tablet 10" until recently and now an iPad Pro 12.9". There was nothing wrong with Roon on the Samsung (it wasn’t the fastest hardware but still OK) and there is nothing wrong now

I found getting a clean version of Android onto a raspberry pi to be pretty easy. Then I found a touchscreen monitor case for the pi/screen. Unlike a tablet, I can’t pick it up and put it in my lap, but I’ve got it mounted to a stand and it sits on table next to my listening chair. Most of the touchscreen pi monitors are less than $150 and can be much less expensive.
