Hello all, can you tell me the best tablet to use with a phantom 4?
I have a Samsung 7 inch that I bought new about 4 months ago that does not seem to handle the video's from my drone.
Everything works fine with my samsung 10+ phone but would like a bigger screen

Looks a bit on the large side there Ian! Feller might need a big tripod to hold that contraption up!

I might mention that I reset my tablet and removed everything not needed to run the DJI app. I have a memory card in to for needed memory. Works fine for me.

I've switched from my 8 inch Samsung tablet to a NVIDIA K1 Shield. Much much better. I can actually see the screen in bright sun light now!

I just looked up the nvidia k 1 tablet. There are alot of them used around $200 and found a new one at $450, do these prices sound right?

If you put up a search on eBay - you can score a deal on one. I bought a second one - just in case something bad happens.
NVIDIA Shield K1 Tablet 16GB Internal +32GB SD Card, Controller, World Adapter -- $122.50

MY iPad mini 4 is my go to device for all my drones. The Dji go app is actually built for IOS.

Nothing against crApple, other than they're sorry, overpriced and underpowered POS... Your opinions may vary. 😁

Since it was mentioned in this thread I've been looking at the NVIDIA Shield K1 as well. I would think that, if it were dedicated to the drone only and ya didn't monkey around fillin it up with other junk like @Tom Connell said, it would be ok for my P4P. I'm having issues with my Galaxy Tab A which is getting old and slow...

If you want the best Android tablet for flying, look at the Huawei M5 (or M3 if you can still find one).
The Nvidia K1 might have been a good flying tablet in it's day but it was released in 2014!!.
It's not really up to running current versions of the app without issues.
You need a faster processor and >2GB of RAM nowdays.

Yeah I used to feel the same way till I bought one.
Unfortunately I've had 2 tablets and 2 iPhones. That's the reason for my dislike of anything iOS. Seems you either love em or hate em. I hate em.

That's a common myth but it's not true.
The box just has the Made for iPad/iPhone logo to indicate that it meets Apple's performance specs.
In plain English ... it will work with Apple devices.

Is this the same as what you're referring to?

That's the one.
But the price is amazing ... is it a genuine ad?
