I'm looking to purchase 3 tablets for my kids, oldest being 11.  They have broken 2 iPads already, so I'm looking to go a less expensive route.

 

What it will be able to do:

 

Rent movies since we travel a lot.

Be able to watch YouTube

Play games

Watch Netflix and Hulu

 

I would also like to have a 4G capability where I can buy a monthly prepaid card just for times we travel, as we will mostly be using the wi-fi from our home.

 

The price of the Kindle Fire is very appealing, but I've read a lot of complaints about the play store not working and I don't believe it comes with 4G.

 

Also, looked at the Samsung Galaxy E with 4G, also appealing price, but read that it lags.

 

Any recommendations??  Would like to spend around $100 each at the most.

The Fire tablet or even an RCA tablet just for the kids would be good. Both you can get for about $40 on black friday and I usually get 2 and put 1 up in case it gets broken.

Does the Fire come with 4G or just wifi?  Do you need Amazon Prime?  I just read a lot of reviews about the play store not working with the Fire.

The Amazon tablets use the Amazon store apps. There is a way to get the Play store on there, and I don't remember it being hard or not working. But then you had 2 app stores to keep up with. Amazons app catalog is pretty good, you might want to look through it and see if anything you use is missing.
Of course, if you already have invested in a lot of paid things from Play store, then that might be a little risky.

moving this to the tech forum as it's more about product recommendations than strictly BF-related :)
