Budget HDMI Tablet?

I'm looking for a tablet with the following requirements:

  • Mainly web browsing and media playback to TV (1080p)
  • HDMI out to TV is a must; casting/wireless is not an option
  • Value for money (cheap!) :D
  • 7" or above. Screen quality/dpi etc not such an issue. Just IPS is fine.
  • Would really like to have root. TWRP would be nice, roms with an active community would be bonus.

I'm familiar with android, and no problem with flashing etc.

The Cube iplay 8 looks like very good value. Except it seems to be Android 6 and no ability to root/recovery/rom it.

Are there any other recommendations under, say $150?

Funny, I was going to post the exact same question !

The only thing I have found is the Dragon Touch V10. 10" IPS display, but only HD (800x1280) but the documentation has it will do FHD out of its mini-HDMI port. I am not sure if audio is also sent over the same wire or not. Only 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, but is does have a micro-SD slot. The version sold on Amazon is running Nougat. $100.

If it had FHD and double the RAM and storage like the Fire HD 10, it would be the KING of the low end.
