I already had Tubemate, then I read somewhere that it was discontinued, so I checked it and it was.

Tubemate is still alive and well, it's just been banned from the Play Store.

I have a 5 yr old IPad Air and I never had one problem. I will buy new one when I get back to USA as mine is a bit slow now and I want more space for files.

I have had many different types of tablets over the years. Hate to say it, cannot beat an Apple iPad. I just bought a new one with an iPen as I do a lot of cartoon work. Fabulous bit of kit. 

 

Generally, if you buy anything from a larger Chinese name brand, you will do okay. Just make sure you look at the screen resolution (get the highest you can afford at that price point). Having good headphones make a big difference to the whole experience as well if you are listening to music or movies/Netflix.

I've got a Huawei mediapad and am very happy with it.

 

You could do a lot worse than this one.

Has a 10 inch screen.

Thanks, but my Huawei smartphone would not accept downloads. Everytime I try this notice comes up "This device has either stopped responding or has been dis connected". That is the reason I will never again buy any Huaweis.

The problem with used things, especially phones and tablets, is that they have a limited lifespan and that particularly applies to the battery. Repairing Apple products usually costs much than repairing a similar non-Apple products.

there is a booming non apple repair community with fair prices and often more competent than official apple service.

No more Huawei for me, I have a Huawei smartphone, it has been good apart from one thing.

It will not let me download music from Youtube where every other device I have had has never been a problem. That tells me it is the phone and not me. You always give me lots of good advice, and I just want you to know it is appreciated.

Download the music on the PC you gave to yuor wife then transfer to yuor Huawei. If you just want the audio, convert it using VLC...free app.

I have various brand tablets and prefer the Microsoft Surface line.  I have an old Surface 3 (not surface pro 3, the previous year's model) which works well and streams full-screen to my Samsung TV using a mini display port to HDMI adapter unlike any of my iPads.  Just be sure to get at least a 128 SSD in it.  Also, unlike an iPad, it has an arrow to let you backspace over text to fix your typing mistakes.  With an iPad, it's a nightmare placing the cursor where you need it to be.

I have a Huawei nova 2i, and there are no problems with downloads from YouTube. Or are you referring to copyrighted material that youtube itself won't let you download :Don't think other brands will allow you to do that?

I have a PC of my own. Anyway, that's the problem, I have downloaded music on to every device I have had and had no problem, but my Huawei will not accept downloads.

So download and convert onto your PC, as mp3s. Put them all up on Google or One Drive, and they are available any place any time any where (Martini). Or you can transfer mp3s via USB onto your Huawei. Sorted.

Or if you want full albums, download via BitTorrent. Rod Stewart, Rick Astley nd Sir Cliff all new albums are very good. McCartneys I passed on.

Nothing to do with copyrighted material, would not even let me download Tubemate. There is no problem with my old Asus tablet.
