      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A average android tablet in my opinion.

      There are many flaws with this tablet. But the first thing I will say is that I got what I payed for; £80 to be exact.

      This first point I will make;

      Low battery life. After browsing for a few hours you have to recharge. Which is expected. However sometimes it takes a fit and freezes refusing to do anything even turning it off. The first time this happened I waited for the power to eventually run out and I recharged and it worked fine, however
      it does this maximum two times a week and I have to whip out a pin to put in the 'Reset' button located on the exterior on one of the short sides.

      Also;

      Limited Apps. The app store, Arnova offers is 'AppsLib' which is good in some ways and bad in others.
      I got several apps that I would have to pay out a lot of money for on Google Play. But is painfully limited in what it can offer in terms of free, good quality apps. I had gotten fed up of the limited apps, and I couldn't download apps from Google Play as I didn't have the app. *So I had to download some firmware which worked out successfully.

      *Do not download firmware unless you know what you are doing otherwise it will be bricked (will not turn on) and will require someone to hack into it and fix it for you which will cost some money. Do this of your own conscience as I will not be held responsible for your actions.

      Browsing;
      Sometimes loads slowly other times quickly, you can't go onto YouNow as it says that it needs a adobe flash update. Which will not work. If you are watching anime online it will cut off expectantly and won't play any further also with movies online. Illegal, I should note.

      Music;
      Speakers are satisfactory if you have a case to stand it upright, but good enough for middle-aged people according to my Mother!.

      Live Wallpapers;
      One of the things I found really cool!. The wallpaper that you set moves in the background from a cosmos of stars to grass flowing to wind which changes from what time of day it is.

      This sounds extremely cynical, but my mother's opinion is completely different she finds it extremely reliable and great. So it differs from different generations I guess.

        excellent budget tablet

        i use this tablet for internet browsing ,playing games ,listening to music and watching videos and the battery lasts hours and hours. it has a 9.7 inch touch screen so web pages ,games ect are easy to see and its also good for reading ebooks on.

        it runs on android 2.3 gingerbread operating system and it has apps such as a web browser and email application and five home screens allowing advanced personalization including widgets for your apps to give you what you want when you want it.

        It supports adobe flash player so you can use web pages that require flash player for example i use it to play on sun bingo .you can also watch videos and play games that require flash player .

        it has a auto rotate screen feature so whichever way you tilt it the screen will turn that way making it easier whichever way you like to hold the tablet .

        it has a 1024 x 768 pixel widescreen so you dont need to zoom in and out to view pages when your on the web as they are shown at their full width.

        the tablet has some pre installed apps such as youtube,document creator , email ,bbc iplayer, camera,music player but you can download thousands more apps and games from the built in apps library.

        the tablet uses wifi to connect to the internet but you can also plug in a usb dongle and use mobile internet via that if you dont want to use wifi .

        the tablet has a 8gb built in memory but you can expand this using sd memory cards .

        the tablet runs smoothly and quietly and is very quick loading web pages ,apps ect .

        it comes with a easy to understand instruction manual to help you find your way around the device and you can also visit the arnova website where you can get instant support with your tablet if you need it .

        overall its a good tablet for the price, they are selling between £120 and £200 now.

        the only disadvantage i found with this device is that you can not setup a password to protect it.
