I currently have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. My girlfriend loves it and uses it all the time, so i want to buy a similar tablet for black friday for her.

- Budget is under $150 including taxes shipping to Canada. I usually buy from big canadian websites like Amazon.ca, newegg.ca, ncix.ca, staples.ca, walmart.ca, futureshop.ca, bestbuy.ca, etc...

- Would prefer to buy a trusted band (something like Samsung or Asus rather than an unknown band, if possible).

- My girlfriend plays game like Simpsons, bejeweled and city tycoon games so she must be able to play these games smoothly on the tablet.
She also plays Dead Trigger but this is a heavy graphic game so i'm not sure if it is possible to play it with a $150 tablet...
The tablet doesn't have to be as powerful as Galaxy Tab 2, as long as it is able to run these games.

- 7" screen minimum, in black color.

Thanks!

HP slate 7, Asus memo pad HD, Samsung galaxy tab 3, dell venue 7 are all pretty good. Dell venue 7 gets my recommendation with memo pad HD coming in next.

Memo Pad HD is the cheapest, but with taxes, eco fees and shipping its still over $150 :( 

How about these two $130 tablets ? Would they be able to run the games mentioned above ?

You sure would get a much better experience with the memo pad... But since ur on a strict budget yeah I guess one of those would work. Don't expect it to be real smooth though. I've used tablets with similar chips and they are pretty laggy. For 20 or so dollars difference it would be so much better. Save up just a tad bit more
