Default Which tablet to get?

Hi folks, new to the forum.

my question is looking advice for a new tablet.
currently have a fire kindle, basic as can be. looking an upgrade on this.

Looking it mainly for watching films, and quick browsing (mostly used whilst travelling etc.)

I guess i want an overall quick speed to the tablet, a decent-sized screen & also the ability to be able to copy movies from a USB/USB hard drive like you would do on a laptop.

Thanks in advance

I use a Samsung Tab S2 tablet to watch movies on when I travel. It has an internal microSD card slot that can handle as large as a 128GB microSD card. However, I found it's easier to use an external USB or microSD card and plug it into the microUSB port on the bottom of the tablet. It's easier to add/remove movies to the external rather than the internal storage since I can just plug the external into my PC to do the transferring.

I would suggest Asus Transformer Pad TF303K. It has dual front speakers, long battery life you can copy movies from a USB as well.
