I am currently needing a tablet to use as a full color ereader and portable Netflix monitor. I won’t be gaming or doing anything computationally intense. I prefer a larger screen to PDF’s don’t need to be scrolled around to view an entire page.
It has a steep price point, but I’m quite happy with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra from Samsung. I use it foremost for Amazon Prime videoing, reading some PDF for gaming and as simhub display when racing. It is probably a bit overkill for those purposes, but it does the job quite well, minus the somewhat short battery time.
you dont need to, to make it crawl so to say. high resolution display by it self can send particular hw to its knees.
its the same as with PCs, the higher resolution you want to push the more horse-power you need.
I mean some tablets cant hold stable 60Hz/fps even displaying browser. then it can be quite heavy on your eyes. lower res panels are less hw demanding but picture is not nice. thats why I dont use tablets for reading. ebook reader all the way!
As portable Netflix monitor I use, for some time now, Lenovo M10 Plus (FHD). works as advertised, no issues yet, display could be bigger, the mentioned 11" / 12 " could work nicely imo. and the Pro could add some horses.
for reading I use PockeBook InkPad X (10"). they have also one with color e-ink display but its only 8".
