Can you please give me some advise on Xiaomi Redmi Pad and/or Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd Gen) ?
I would like try out Zwift by mounting a screen on my hometrainer (Flow Fitness Perform B3i Ergometer). It would not like to use a TV or monitor. The budget I am thinking about is 200-300 euro. Perhaps in a later stage, if I actually keep doing it:-), I will build a dedicated solution.
I come to the conclussion that an android tablet it the most pradtical in price/performance. However, I am a bit scared by the SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab A not being supported. I would like to prevent the scenario of spending money first and afterwards find out if it will work. Unfortunately the Android Supported devices does not seem to have been maintained anymore.
The Helio G99 chipset seems resonably in price vs performace, so I come to this shortlist:
Why I gave the Samsung Galaxy Tab A as an example, is because when it was recent, it seemed to match the minimum requirements and people bought it for using zwift on it. And then they found out, it was not supported. (There is a thread about this). I just want to avoid that scenario.
Some extra background info.
I am sure there are technical better options than a tablet. Like a PC. However, I would just like to have a display that I can mount onto the trainer. It is in the middle of my living room and I just dont want a PC there or an extra table. A tablet just blends in. I also do not want to be dependent on the availability of the TV. I would like the solution to be enabling as independent of the activities of the rest of my family. A scenario of connecting a PC (or apple tv) to my TV will end up in a technical nice solution that will not be used. I prefer low-res over that
That’s why I am asking if people have experience with these tablets.
