Which Tablet best for /e/OS?

Hello,
I would like to buy a used tablet to be able to read pdf files better. I don’t have any requirements (e. g. long battery life and WiFi) for the tablet, which would be nice if I could install / e / OS on the tablet. Which tablets are good for this, maybe someone is selling their / e / OS recorded tablet. :wink:
I also need a little help installing / e / OS on the tablet or is there already a step-by-step guide somewhere?

best regards

Stefan

Hi,

Is there any tablet with stable releases of /e/OS?
I was looking at the Samsung S2, but if I understand it correctly, it is not on a stable release.

Thank you

The vast majority of all devices supported by /e OS are not ‘stable’ /e/ OS versions, but trusted signed ‘dev’ releases. Currently, there are only six ‘stable’ ePhones.

It might be the installation in the device where you can install e/ ?

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 works fine.
It can be a little heavy for long reading sessions, but comes with an integrated kickstand.
Detailed step-by-step instructions for this device : https://doc.e.foundation/devices/YTX703F/install

if you only want to read monochrome pdf files, perhaps a paper-ink reader would be more suitable …

Ok, thank you.

Let’s see if anybody has any feedback about the Samsung S2 as well…

I’m using /e/ on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10 inch version) and it works just fine. I don’t know why “messages” app hasn’t been removed since it’s not a phone. Other than that I’m happy. Anything special you’d like to know?

Something I forgot to mention : Bliss Launcher is not suitable for 10" tablets.
I installed Shade Launcher, very happy with it.

@smu44
I’am happy with the Bliss Launcher as well on my 7" Nexus… :slight_smile:

@all:
I bought a Google Nexus 7 (LTE) 32GB tablet on the used market for 40 €. Then I flashed the tablet with @Anonyme Costum Rom. Many THX for it !!! :wink:

Thanks for your feedback about Bliss, I corrected my post (screen size).

Happy you found a device that meets your needs :smiley:
Wow, this one is really affordable !

Interesting …
And very affordable, as @smu44 said…

Can it work as phone?
I am wondering if it could be possible to have something like that compact tablet for SMS and messaging apps, and a dumb phone for calls (with the same phone number :slight_smile: ). Any idea? Thank you in advance

@sonyxa2
I don’t know if it work as Phone (Phonecalls). My LTE Data Card connects only with Datamodus, not with Callpermissions. I do not try Threma or Signal yet, but why they may not working. Signal uses a Phonenumber for verification, Threema not. But you can register Signal on the Tablet and verify it over the Phonenumber of your Smartphone when verification SMS recives.
WiFi & LTE (4G) are working very good. SMS are working, i tested it a few moments before writing this Message.
best regards
Stefan

Thank you @Stefan76 for your feedback

@smu44 thanks a lot for this tip! I just bought a 2nd hand Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 (€100) and installed /e/OS without any problem. All seems to work very nice.
