Samsung a7 should never be a part of your consideration. If u want to get a Samsung device, u should go for their best s7 tablet. They produce the worst budget and midrange tablets (for the price they are charging) with very poor screen and viewing angles. Not even an ips lcd screen. Even the upcoming A8 is a bunch of nonsense.

Currently only Lenovo, Xiaomi and Huawei makes good quality android tablets without bursting your wallet. And if u want google services, the competition is really between Lenovo and Xiaomi really.

Mi Pad 4 lor, 8 inch tablet. Currently using for 3 years liao.

I 2nd your recommendation. Mi pad 4 is still the best 8 inch android tablet. Strong 3rd party development support. I flashed mine to Android 10 ROM. For new buyers for mi pad 4, I suggest looking at carousell then get a reputable repair guy to replace battery for u. Then it will be as good as new.

I also 2nd Nakedtoes bro. Actually new 10 inch+ tablets are very slim and light. Doesn't really feel as big as those older gen ones already.

Skip to around 19:00 for a list of pros and cons. Before going all out on its pros, u need to accept its cons. The cons are the main reason I did not go for this tablet despite following xm from mi pad 1-4.

The lack of sd card support and USB 2..0 speed (for a list price of over $400) are the main ones for me.

I think most impt thing is to understand your needs. There is no perfect tablet for everyone. Even if there is, it will come with the major con of being highly priced.

For me, I transfer files to and fro devices a lot, and store a lot of photos/videos in the tablet. So a micro SD card slot is a must have for me.
I also use tablet for a majority in media consumption and gaming. So a good screen is also a must-have. OLED screens will be brilliant.
I expect good gaming performance, since I do play games like genshin impact.
It's also quite desirable to have a desktop mode. But a tablet with desktop mode without HDMI-out is useless since I cannot easily connect to monitors or projectors for presentation/sharing. Without a way to connect to external displays, it can hardly qualify for being a 'laptop replacement'.

Given all these factors, I chose the Lenovo p11 pro. For the upcoming 11.11 sales, if pad pro 2021 has major discounts, I will consider upgrading.
