My demand list for a compact tablet

Yes, it's that time of the year and considering a new tablet, but you also don't want to settle for a subpar product so you're setting some demands. For me I've used ten inch tablets but I really have been prefering the 7-8 inch range tablets with 8 inch being the max, for eBook reading and general reading. The beauty about 7-8 inch tablets that they can be used in portrait mode and have about the same size as an average book. In portrait mode you have alot more room since it's a 16:9 resolution mostly. You can hold it with two hands while chatting with two thumbs. 

At some point I plan on buying a new tablet, I have a nexus 7 (2013), while I still like this tablet a lot there's some shortcomings like outdated 2 year old hardware, battery feels a bit on the low side since nowadays 8 inch tablets have 4-5k mAh batteries.

Anyways, here's the demand list

  • Front facing speakers
  • Atleast 1920x1200 or 2560x1440
  • IPS or amoled display
  • 7 to 8 inch with 8 inch being the Max
  • Snapdragon 801 (2.5GHz) chipset or better
  • At least 3GB ram
  • Good build quality
  • Waterproof is a plus
  • Android, OS of choice
  • Stock Android is a plus
  • Or a popular manufacturer so CyaNoGen will most likely be available
  • 4.5k mAh battery or better
  • HDMI mini port is a huge plus

All I can think of right now.
