I bought this to see if I actually needed a tablet, as the usual suspects are so expensive, so for this price I expected it to be a slow, clunky thing. It isn't. It puts my smartphone to shame as far as speed is concerned and seems to do everything almost perfectly. So the chip is fine, there's 16GB of memory, it accepts a Micro SD card so you can add up to 32GB more, and it just works. I've not given it five stars because the battery is typical for this sort of thing and doesn't last more than four hours constant use, but that's the limit of battery technology, not the tablet itself. Why pay more? A complete bargain and easy recommendation.
