Needs to have 32GB of internal storage and MicroSD slot. It will be used for watching movies and playing games like all the Angry Bird games, Bloons Tower Defense, Pac-Man 256, Sky Force, etc. Nothing super intensive. Also need to stay near $200. So far I found the following.

Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70 w/ 32GB, MT8165, 2GB, 1920x1200, $214
Asus - ZenPad w/ 32GB, Z3530, 2GB, 2048 x 1536, $199
Nextbook Ares 11.6 2-in-1 w/ 64GB, Z3735G, 1GB, 1366 x 768, $197

The Ares is interesting in that it comes with a keyboard (not really needed), larger screen (but lower res), 64GB internal (no more worries about space), but only 1GB of ram (how important is that?). Although the Tab 2 and ZenPad look more of what I need and I think faster. Plus I have heard of Lenovo and Asus, but I haven't heard mush about Nextbook. Which cpu and gpu are faster? I don't really know a good site to compare tablet cpus and gpus.

Lenovo. IMO you wont need the higher res Asus and that Ares will kill your eyes.

I would pick the Lenovo personally for a more stock Android experience. The Asus is also not a bad device.

The Nextbook shouldn't be touched. Fonts will look like garbage on that low PPI screen and 1GB of RAM just isn't enough for Android in 2015.

Nice to know Lenovo is more stock. Is Lenovo pretty good about updating Android?
