Default Tablet for my son

Hi guys, iam looking to buy a tablet, mainly for my son, but it will also be used a little bit around the house by adults.

Basically wondering what to get between an Apple product or Samsung. I have a Samsung S4 phone and I had a S3 before it, and I like them.

My son will mainly use the tablet for playing games, as well as watching a few films and using the camera. Hopefully will keep it a few years.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A looks good for the money, but its obviously inferior to the flagship model. Would it make much difference to a 7 year old?

Im also eyeing up a Ipad Mini 2, but I really hate the fact you cant add a SD card to it, and ive never liked anything apple.

A full size ipad air seems very expensive, the Samsung Tab S2 doesn't look to bad, and its probably what im looking at most.

Can you get the Amazon Fire tablet there? If so, hard to beat that. It's $49.99 in the US, assuming it's probably £49.99 there, it's still a hell of a deal.

edit: Here it is

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...CO/ref=fs_ford

The price is perfect for a child.

I love the Kindle Fire for my son. You can get Kindle FreeTime, https://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html?node=12528011011, which is great for kids his age cause everything is kid appropriate and has a ton of content, very well worth the $3 a month we pay for it, also has no ads and none of the games have in app purchases, plus you can add apps to the freetime app if there are some games/videos that don't come up with the service but you wanted to buy/get free.
