Tablet recommendations (Budget:S$250)

Hi, I will like some tablet recommendations. Budget is under $250.
Mainly, I want long battery life. And high external storage Micro-sd, 256 gb.
Mainly used it to store and read ebooks.
I have about 200gb of ebooks. Hope to store it in the tablet and read it. I only use the tablet to read ebooks.
Thanks for your recommendations!

Likewise, if there is a ereader with high internal/external storage of 200gb, around my budget, feel free to recommend it as well!

Mi Pad 4 wifi 8". Have sd slot. But no normal tablet will beat e-ink screen for long duration reading.

Check out Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2019) - T295 with 1 Year Warranty for $208.00. Get it on Shopee now! https://shopee.sg/product/48961570/2419711180?smtt=0.0.9
This should be cheaper. Same model?

Different size and screen... this is an 8" tablet with a PLS screen while the Tab A 10.1 (2019) is a 10.1" tablet with an IPS screen...

For reading, I think an 8" screen is sufficient... the tablet is significantly lighter also. And larger bezels are much much better so your hands won't ache so much... I'm using the Tab A 10.1 (2019) on and the bezels are really narrow and reading for long isn't very good for my wrists and hands... will get couple tunnel syndrome...

Anybody interested in a set of samsung tab a 8.0 2019 LTE (T295) ? Letting go @ $160. Comes with a brand new tempered glass screen protector and casing.
1 Year local warranty with Samsung.

Opened once to check condition of tablet.

Selling because I want to get different tablet instead. Looking for a bigger screen since my main aim is streaming videos.

No. This model no S pen. But I read in the tab A thread can buy 3rd party stylus to use with this tab.

Samsung low end tablet has always been less responsive. Actually not just samsung, many brand as well. Tablet somehow always feel slower than phone even with the same resolution, CPU and RAM.

I don't have that issue with the 2019 Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 LTE. Not the smoothest but certainly not stuttering and jerky... it's relatively smooth, comparable to my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that I am using since 2018...
