I'm looking for cheap (budget) Chinese tablet recommendations for $130 USD or under (delivered).

basic requirements
* MicroSD
* 7 or 8 inch IPS screen (720p minimum)
* USB On-The-Go (OTG)
* rootable
* English firmware
* autofocus rear camera (any resolution)
* reliable (no silly problems with battery, screen, firmware, etc.).

Any suggestions?

I realize that I neglected to mention my perceived Cons for each device:

OnePlus 5
Quality Control (Jelly scroll, 911 issues, etc...)
Aftermarket suppor (I've seen CS horror stories with OnePlus)


Mate 9
EMUI Software (It looks like it's gotten better, but I've never been a fan of heavy skins)
Software Updates (I'm not sure how regularly Huawei issues security updates)

Oh yeah, the jelly scrolling...if I look very closely and try to see it then yes I can see what they're talking about but I personally can't imagine it bothering me. I know some people are OCD and get bothered by certain things but for me I can't even see how it's an issue.

I've had no quality control issues so far. I did have a used oneplus one a while back that I sold for no good reason. It had no issues either. So that made me a little more confident I guess. The shipping was very fast and I was updated constantly until it arrived well packaged.

Hello, everyone.

I'm looking to replace my Nexus 7. I have some basic requirements:

- 8" IPS screen with a 16:10 or 4:3 ratio.
- 1280x800 or higher.
- 2GB of RAM or higher.
- 16GB of storage or higher.
- Good community support for roms/kernels/rooting or stock Android.
- $200 Canadian or lower.
- New is preferable but I don't mind buying refurbished if it's in good condition.

Thanks!

I currently have an LG G3(D851) so the specs are as follows:

5.5 inch IPS LCD display
3 GB RAM
32 GB storage
Removable Battery
SD Card capability
3000 mah battery

My new device needs to preferably exceed those specs. Removable battery and SD card cable is a must. Camera doesn't have to be spectacular but descent. My budget ideal budget would be $150 up to $200 USD.
