Currently i have just a classic, mid price, average quality and specifications Android tablet. I have considered buying the Apple one, the iPad. Only issue is the money but i am getting closer each day
Alcatel is a very solid tablet brand, even though it is cheaper, like you said they are extremely durable which can, sometimes, be more important than the actual specifications of the device.
If you are interested in some higher quality, equally durable tablets i would definitely recommend Asus and Lenovo ones, since they are just top notch
I am currently using the iPad Pro 10.5 inch. Paired with the Apple Pencil, it is one of the best tablets for taking "handwritten" notes and art. It is also pretty powerful, so if you pair with a keyboard, you can easily do Microsoft Office tasks (word docs, exel, powerpoint).
I'm also using alacatel tablet before, and it's actually good in gaming, and very strong tablet, I accidentally dropped that for many times but still working, and actually until now, it's working. I'm using that for almost 4 years now. But it belongs to my father now, I give it to him because I bought new one.
Could you perhaps share one of the best tablets of Alcatel? It's a brand that I have never even heard of. I would like to see what one of their best models is capable of.
If you want, do give an example of an average tablet of that brand. One that is good, no longer brand new, and lowered in price.
