User opinions and reviews

Sort by:

I've bought cheap used one with touch screen not working, opened it and cleaned contacts, it took a 15 minutes and now it works good.
After installing google play everything runs great. Battery is great. Sound is good. No complains.

This tablet actually has 2GB of total RAM, although system + native apps running in the background drop that to ~1.1GB (you see less than that free in the screenshot because of the apps I'm running). Probably why Amazon announces it as 1.5, but still, I bought it expecting to have 600-700MB free for my apps, so that was a nice surprise.

This is a good tablet for what you pay

Although not mentioned in the info here this does have usb otg. It can access a mouse, keyboard or usb sticks. If powered however, it can access a 2 tb hard drive. I tried it with both a seagate expansion and a backup plus slim and it works fine. Other than that great tablet.

frooglemeister, 20 Dec 2017How do you side load Google Play on to this tablet?deviously

cHEAPER THAN MOST. sTUCK WITH AMAZON APPS that cant be removed. ( I shuffe=led them intov a folder called ****). you CAN get the google play store app on it by several ( Highly dubious) methods. (my grandkids did mine, Mi'lud, not guilty). Battery life is v. good, I get 6 to 8 hrs video, 3-4 days on standby. Size is best compromise between 7 inch and 10 in tabs. Stick 64-128gb sd card in it (takes up to 256), and load it up, either from pc, or via pc to add./remove. Oh yes,finally, get a decent file manager on it, easy to become lost ....cheers frm the UK

It is still a good tablet for music and video streaming and ocasional web browsing. I wouldn't suggest anything else on it, if you want to have a leasant experience. Even though my kindle is not rooted, I sideloaded the Google Play store and several other android apps.

Dam! Got it to shop quicker than the 7" in started with. I dunno if I justify the Prime membership.....BUT...I get excellent prices in a sort of "shopping desert" in a 100K pop. US Midwest town.
I could play 2 viddies off the sd card back to back....g00d battery....pic fine on a plane seat tray or in a waiting room etc.

This is not that bad for the price. The size and weight are just right. The screen is fine, a one megapixel display is adequate for an 8 inch tablet. The processor is underpowered but with more RAM it wouldn't lag so much. It is easy to install the Google Play store and services that makes this a decent ultracheap tablet for reading eBooks and watching videos. The speakers are alright, as good as BoomSound speakers.

The screen on this scratches insanely easily. I have a keyboard/case for this and the keyboard is plastic. There is no way a plastic keyboard could scratch gorilla glass.
