Advantages: Touch screen reacts quickly, shows how much space of your RAM, system memory and SD card there is.
Disadvantages: I think you have seen me rant.
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.
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.
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.
Speakers are satisfactory if you have a case to stand it upright, but good enough for middle-aged people according to my Mother!.
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.
Summary: A average android tablet in my opinion.
