I just bought a cheap Android tablet, with a nice leather case/keyboard combo and it lasted all of a week before the screen broke. I'm hard on stuff, I ride a motorcycle, or bicycle, so by necessity stuff things in backpacks. I'm surprised it's case didn't protect it, merely riding in my pack the screen cracked and the LED behind it died.
I hear the cheap ones you buy at Wal-Mart are plastic, but I'd hate to count on that, and I'm familiar enough with Wal-Mart to know you can't count on their employees knowing anything about their products.
I know, plastic screens have their issues, but I need the durability, and being as I'm only looking for a basic browsing Android tablet, at low cost you'd think I'd be able to find it. Unfortunately, seems to me almost all of them are glass, but most of them I can't even find enough info on to confirm that even. At a loss here on what to do. For the kind of cheapie I want, but the time it got scratched or cloudy, I'd likely be replacing it anyway. Just want something that can take a beating and work for a year at least. With my lifestyle I can't count on glass. I've found Gorilla glass to be next tow worthless shatter wise as well.
I mean I buy cheap plastic phones and they are durable as all getout. Sure they scratch up a bit, but scratched is still much more usable than cracked to me anyway.
