Hey :D
so as the title says. I need a cheap 7inch or less tablet that has 3g/4g capability to play pokemon go :)

I get unlimited data sim allowance and thought I might as well put that sim to use :tpi: everyone in the family including myself already have unlimited data on the phone with 3.

www.amazon.co.uk would be ideal place. But www.ebay.co.uk is ok too :)

(sorry if its the wrong place)

I bought a cheap ass phone, I know it's not a tablet, but still 4G.
I am using the LG Optimus Zone 3 for pokemon Go. It's pretty good for a 30$ phone, sporting an ok 1.1 Quad-core and 1.5GB of RAM

I have a decent phone. But I just dont wanna use the S7 too much to play this game lol. It eats up battery like crazy and I have a data sim with unlimited allowance from work. So thought a tablet specifically for couple of games would do.

Use a phone tablets have issues with the game.
above :)

edit: and that data sim doesnt work with phones. It will get blocked.

Well not that you can't use tablets but isn't design for a phone not tablet? I hope tablets now come with the mobile data connections cause your gonna be outta luck using it with only wifi unless you rely on hotspots :P

Using my phone isnt a problem. I just have a spare data sim that has no use. I thought I would use that to play pokemon go, instead of charging my phone 3 times a day :P

That's where the problem starts, no cheap or expensive tablet has enough juice to play the game all day long. Tablets are bigger hence more power consumption via the screen. And they might not necessarily have larger batteries enough to compensate their size.


If you really want to get rid of the hassle of charging your phone multiple times a day, and want something inexpensive which'll be perfect to solve your problem, I'd have you check out something like this- http://www.gearbest.com/cell-phones/pp_204428.html

Sure the website and the product itself might seem sketchy, but at the end of the day, it really works; a friend of mine uses the above mentioned phone specially for Pokemon Go. A 10000 Mah battery phone is a monster.
Alternatively there are a few other options that you can find after a little research.

Get one of these
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pny-Power...-Mah-2.40-A-5-V-Dc-Output-5-V-Dc-Inp/48191303
I have one for my 5S and can recharge my phone twice while max brightness.

I have a 22100mAh by anker :P honestly, I was off this week from work. and I had to charge that thing twice and my phone like 10+ times.

my purpose is purely to find a tablet, so I can use my tablet sim. My network(three) blocks the usage of tablet sims on phone and vise versa.
