Reasonable price alternative for iPad 9,7 & Apple Pencil, Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is Acer Chromebook Tab 10. Acer has Wacom EMR pen, but the manufactor doesn't tell, if the pen supports pressure sensitivity or not. I asked from a Finnish dealer and I get answer, that it supports pressure sensitivity. Maybe almost as good as S-Pen. Operating system is the same, which Acer use in the Cromebook laptop series. Operating system is then alternative for Windows 10 and concerning layout closer Mac OS than IOS for iPad. You might get from special offer some tablet cheaper, for example 16-17.7.2018 from Amazon Italy I could get Huawei with amazing price 399 €. Newest version of my favorite drawing application ibisPaint X supports pressure sensitivity for Android devices. Now I don't have any reason for paying iPad 9,7 & Apple Pencil. Maybe iPad 9,7 & Apple Pencil does have better price/quality relationship, but because I can't use Apple Pencil, iPad 9,7 & Apple Pencil is not an alternative for me.
