Tablet purchasing advice, please.


I am looking for a new tablet. I have exprience with a Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, Surface Pro 3 and an iPad. I do not like the iPad. The Surface is great, but even the Surface 3 is still more of a mini-laptop to me. I still have to use the keyboard and pen because I always seem to find myself in the desktop environment instead in tablet mode. If I were in the market for a laptop, too, I would probably get it. I think I want to stay with an Android device.

I would like at least a 10" tablet. It will be used strictly for movies (local network streaming, on device playing and Netflix/Hulu streaming), music, minimal web surfing and game streaming via Gamestream/Moonlight. I am looking at the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, but it is really expensive...especially because I would have to order it from Taiwan, as it is not released in the US yet. And if anything were to go wrong with it, the warranty process would be hell. I am also looking at the Samsung Tab s 10.5. It really looks like a nice tablet, but there are some mixed reviews out there. Lenovo also has a 10" tablet, the Tab2 A 10-70, which looks okay because of the high resolution IPS display and the price. However, I am a bit skepitcal because I do believe that most times if it is to good to be true it mostly is and you get what you pay for.

To wrap it up, does anyone have any advice or suggestions for me? Or, does anyone have any experience with any of the tablets I have mentioned? My budget is around $500 USD.

Thank you in advance for your help!
