I forgot to share that with this community…

For all who are interested in a cheap touch screen interface for their 3D Printer.
I found a cheap tablet which works very well with the #GCodePrintr App to control my 3D Printer. I bought the Yuntab D102 on Amazon for ~70$ !
While the display resolution of the tablet is quite rough for normal use, it is perfect for showing the 3D printer controls (move XYZ, home,…). The performance is good as well, receiving a 50MB gcode file over network is much faster then with my old Intenso tablet. The 2M back-facing camera is good enough for watching a print remotely using the GCodePrintr Web interface.
And the best thing is: The Yuntab tablet has a dedicated power port to be independent of the batterie while printing. The USB port is used for the 3D printer connection (USB-OTG Adapter required).
Meanwhile I did several 3-5h prints without any issue, therefore I thought it would be good to share my insights.
Picture shows my my 3D printer with self-made chassis and attached Yuntab tablet running the GcodePrintr App.
