I've been thinking about getting a cheap tablet for reading on, but it seems to be pretty hard to find one here that works with LineageOS or similar custom ROMs (I need something reasonably FOSSy and without Google's spying bits). I miss my old Nexus 7, unfortunately it doesn't work any more.
I was on similar hunt as well. Didnt find anything cheap so I bought tab s2 for grandma. Wasnt cheap though.
@whirli That's a bit too expensive for me, or for my purpose (just to read every now and then).
