A total bargain tablet (android)
Member Name: spiritwood
Advantages: Easy to use and set up, a bargain, tons of apps
Disadvantages: A little quiet and not brilliant battery life.
We managed to get this for £58 and to be honest I was not expecting an awful lot for the money.
It arrived very quickly ( 2 days) and was very easy and intuitive to set up.
It came with a stylus, charger and a usb lead which we used to connect it up to a case with a keyboard. The usb cable broke very fast but we managed to grab another on amazon for £1.50 inc postage so no problem there.
On to the tablet itself. It is slim, has a 7" screen and decent resolution. Obviously for this price you will not get Samsung Galaxy standard but for watching constant repeats of cbeebies and annoying youtube cartoons, this hits the spot and is easy to watch.
It is not very loud, although useable. But if you want to it is easy to hook up speakers to it via the little standard jack on the side.
We bought a microSD card to increase the memory, easy to fit- just slot in the back and it recognised it immediately.
Since I have bought this, I have rarely got a look in but when my daughter is in bed I have used it to watch stuff on iPlayer and netflix and it copes just fine with no stalling or stuttering.
There are a wealth of apps available through "google play" - hundreds upon hundreds of apps, many of which are free. My daughter uses youtube, iplayer, several of the sketching and colouring apps and a particular favourite is talking tom cat :)
This came with 8GB internal memory (now upgraded) and runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
The tablet features a capacitive touchscreen, meaning it reacts to firmish touch and styluses don't work. I actually prefer this type of screen as it is easier not to make errors with a small hand movement.
It came with a screen protector but this did not last long with toddler fingers, so I bought a few more on Amazon for a few quid.
This tablet amazes me - what you can get for your money is incredible. It is not top of the range by any means but it works, is reliable and great fun. We have had no technical issues with it and it is easy to set up and use. Brilliant stuff ( if I ever get a look in thanks to my daughter )
Summary: Excellent value for money
