    The reason you were told that about tablet cameras is to do with the size of the lens and the size of the sensor. Look at an SLR camera - on a full frame one the sensor is 35mm across and the lens opening a fair bit bigger than that so a lot of light comes in. On a phone or tablet the lens is a few mm across and the sensor a similar size - it's working with much less light so it is making compromises along the way.

    You can still take brilliant photos with a tablet or phone, but that will be brilliant composition because you're a really good photographer and it won't be down to the hardware you are using.

    There are only a few good mobile companies out there that sport a good quality of camera but are not at every tab version they introduce. Try looking at the latest huawei and samsung model tabs on youtube. I have a samsung from 2014 and the camera is better than most.

    Check out Huawei media pad or Lenovo yoga tab 3. Wanted to get the media pad but ended up with the Lenova yoga. Still both got very decent cameras.

    No, use your phone. If you're actually going to spend money on this, upgrade your phone. There are no tablets with 'good' cameras that a phone won't beat. There's simply more investment in the phones.
    I'll anticipate a question - it's hard to see photos on the phone screen.
    Not a problem, mostly. Phone screens are bigger and better than ever. And if you want to view it on a tablet screen (and get a nice high resolution one), then Google Photos on your phone and tablet will sync the photos taken on the phone, onto the cloud, and back down onto the tablet. If you have WiFi.
