Best Android tablets for Matterport Pro2/Pro3 Capture in 2024?19669

Fathom3D private msg quote post Address this user
We have a new scan technician getting started with us; he'll be using Pro2 mostly; sometimes Pro3.

He prefers Android over Apple so we're going to try getting him an Android tablet to see how it goes.

Does anyone have recommendations?

Prefer 8 inch screen for ease of use
Prefer 8+ GB RAM for larger jobs (physical RAM; not sure how well "virtual RAM" works)
Prefer faster processor

After an hour or so of research, it looks like the 8-inch form factor consists of just older or less powerful tablets. For watching videos or reading books. But am I missing something?

I guess we would also consider getting a phone with a large screen (and just using it as a tablet; no cell connection). But there are so many Android phones available; it's hard to know where to start looking.

Any advice is appreciated, even if it's just some general concepts to keep in mind when shopping for Android devices.

For others following along, so far the favorite options for the 8 inch form factor are:

Lenovo y700 $329 (12gb RAM Snapdragon 870 chip)
Aldocube iPlay Mini Pro $160 (8gb RAM / Helio G99 chip)
Samsung A9 $150 (8gb RAM / Helio G99 chip)

y700 uses a Chinese ROM based on Android 12; might be tough to access Google Play store for in-app purchases, possibly hard to get Android software updates

Aldocube iPlay Mini Pro available on Amazon: NFE 8.4 inch Tablet, 16GB(8+8)RAM 256GB ROM 512GB Expandable, Helio G99 Android Tablet with Widevine L1, 1920×1200 FHD+ Android 13

Samsung A9 is evidently hard to find in the US
