    Hello, I'm looking for an 8" android tablet with removeable storage

    That's pretty much the only solid requirement, obviously prefer higher resolution/better screen but that'll probably cost a premium

    It's mostly going to be used for manga/comic reading, light webbrowsing and youtube/twitch.

    With black friday coming up shortly I'm hoping that whatever you guys suggest will go on offer but v0v

    Same as xeno but I'd rather not spend more than 75€ to make things harder

    I'd say kindle fire because it'll probably be on sale, (75€? really tho?)

They seem to care less about Android these days than about newer technologies. I really do hope Nokia get it together with better phones in the next few years, because their model is better than most.

    I have a Sony Xperia Z5 from November 2015 and I'm super happy with it and none of the current crop offer anything that would influence me to get a new phone at the moment. My next phone will most definitely not be a flagship, though. There is really no point at all in spending so much on a phone that I can see, apart from brand addiction and the need to impress someone. Mid-range phones do all one needs for far less money these days.

    No oneplus 5t to Australia. I guess I'll have to side load it from the US.
    Contract stuff to Seraphina Amaranth.

    Wanting to experiment with a remote sensing project for biological research, had the idea of using an app with motion detector to send me an image in real time when activity is detected - hook it up to an external battery and a small solar panel and you have something pretty cool. Turns out a free app does just this, Motion Detector Pro (android, sends via email).

    Anyway, just heard of Freedompop, seems like it might be ideal for my uses (granted I'm still an undergrad student and still doing this as a proof of concept). Looks like it requires a sprint (or unlocked?) phone. Any suggestions for a cheap android phone that would be a good test bed for this and other projects?

    Solar panel isn't going to do much, you're better off using a large battery.

    How fast do the events happen? I would be curious if there aren't open arduino products that do the same thing (and could do it more efficiently in terms of battery).

    I have a 15 watt panel that easily outputs 2 amps, more than enough to run the phone and charge the spare battery. Compact and cheap too https://www.amazon.com/Anker-Charger.../dp/B012YZXMZS

    The reason I'm learning toward a phone is the functionality is completely built in, and much more reliable than arduino solutions

    You’re unlikely to pull anything close to 15W outside of optimal conditions.

    I've measured its output in varying light levels and it only takes medium-bright conditions for it to output 10 watts (the most I could get out of a single USB port anyway); and I think I'd need ~2.5 watts or less just to keep the phone running.

    I've literally tested it with meters in real lighting conditions and it has no problem outputting >2 amps at 5V....

    Either way its not really relevant to my original question

    I also like to talk shit about solar panels without taking latitude/weather into account.

    Got a Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet in the end, pretty good

    Amazon ran out of EU stock and so I got a Japanese model which was locked to Android 4.4.4, not ideal obviously

    an hour of tinkering later and it's been flashed to 7.0 and liberal usage of >adb disable sony.domain.com< removed all the shitty bloatware so it's now basically just running stock android

    gonna get a 64 or 128 GB SD card and a 2nd SIM card for 4g and it'll be perfect

    any good games on Android that people like?

    Hearthstone?

    I remember getting an iPad simply because there were no Android clients for XCom and FTL.

    I'd honestly rather throw £100 in the bin every month
