Generic Android 4.0 Tablet PC
Disadvantages: Plasticy and flimsy
My ex bought this for our daughter last year, the first thing I thought when I seen the tablet was how cheap it looked, I quickly checked on Amazon and seen it was £36.
This tablet comes in a variety of colours. The tablet my daughter received was white in colour. The box was nice and had pictures of Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja on it highlighting the apps that come on it.
The tablet is 7 inches and runs on Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich, I never got around to updating it but it was really far behind my Samsung tablet.
The unit is made from a very cheap plastic, it feels like a toy it is so lightweight and cheap even the buttons on the side are a cheap plastic. The tablet weighs 308g and measures 18.1cm x 12.1cm x 0.9cm.
The tablet has the usual ports for charging, headphones a USB cable and it also has a memory card salot. This is useful as the tablet has on 4gb of memory. The tablet has a 1ghz processor, a front camera which is 1.3MP, built in WIFI and Bluetooth.
The tablet was easy to set up, I have a Google Play account already so I linked it up to mine. This was bought to keep my daughter from my phone and tablet which she always a wanted to go on. She mainly likes to watch video clips and films on it as well as listen to music. It is a good thing that the tablet has a memory card slot as I filled the memory up in no time.
I found the WIFI on this device a little weak, I had to sit next to my modem to get it to do anything. The quality of the screen when I set it up was also poor compared to other cheap tablets out there. I found the touch screen really hard to use it was really insensitive and needed a good prod to actually work.
Once all loaded up I gave it to my daughter. She became frustrated with this quite quickly as it is very unresponsive we have drawing apps on it which were impossible touse. Another Another thing we found was the sound when watching videos was poor. It sounded echoey, distant and tinny.
The camera on the device was OK my daughter likes to film herself and it suited that purpose.
The battery life on this device is shocking, when the WIFI is on which is infrequent as I turn it off when I am not using it you can see the battery life draining before your eyes. Also despite charging this device for hours a on end the battery never gets full it always stays on 80% ish.
We had this device about 3 months and I have to say I personally would have paid the extra £50 for a decent tablet.
I kept this tablet in a case and it had a screen protector on this, despite this my daughter lent on the screen just her elbow and it cracked completely.
I really wouldn t recommend this. It is cheap and I can see why this would appeal to parents looking to save money but I have since had to fork out for a better tablet that is better quality.
This is cheap flimsy and a poorly made device. 1 star.
