A great tablet for a great price!
, 27 Aug. 2012
This review is from: NATPC M010S 8GB Capacitive Android 4.0 ICS (Ice Cream, Sandwich) , 7" Android Tablet PC Responsive Capacitive Screen - Flash Player 11.1 - Compatible with BBC iPlayer / Youtube / Facebook - HD 2160P - compatible with SKYPE VIDEO calling (Personal Computers)
Recently, I recommended this tablet on a bargain-sharing group I run. As a result, I was asked several questions about the tablet. In this review, I'll address the most commonly asked questions asked by my group, in the hope that it will help someone else!
Apps: (You DO have access to Google's 'Play Store' and all the apps therein).
Angry Birds: Works perfectly.
BBC iPlayer: Works perfectly, no lag, good sound.
Netflix: Works perfectly, streams with no issues. The sound can be quite low on some films though. I'd suggest speakers/earphones.
YouTube: Searches, plays and skips perfectly with very little buffering time required.
Kindle App: Set up in seconds and works perfectly.
Website based games/browsing:
Moshi Monsters: Allowed me to create/change a monster, so I *assume* this site will work fine.
Nick Jr: Allowed me to play non-keyboard games with very little problem.
Youtube: Streams and functions well using via the tablet's web browser.
Various text and/or flash based websites have loaded with very few issues.
The screen is pretty responsive (not quite as good as a £400 iPad, of course) and game play on websites, while perhaps *slightly* slow to load (in comparison with a laptop), is of a comparable speed to my flash-supporting Samsung Galaxy S Plus mobile, app speed is identical to my iPad2 so far (remember, the iPad doesn't support flash). App download speed is good, definitely comparable to the iPad2.
The casing of the unit does feel fairly robust (but not at all 'sleek'), and the screen feels like an average touch-screen smart phone, it's not cheap & nasty like the screen on some budget tablets might be.
Negatives: Certain apps, like Google Maps, have refused to work and have frozen the tablet/caused a black screen. I have taken the 'oh well, it's not an iPad after all!' approach to such issues and have just rebooted the tablet, deleted the offending app(s) and tried an alternative. The sound on the tablet is fine, but could be doing with being boosted a little when using some apps/sites. There can be some small issues with the touch-controls, in so much as you may find yourself having to repeatedly tap certain icons/links, but that also happens with my iPad2 occasionally.
For the price paid, I'm very impressed with this tablet, regardless of any small issues that have presented themselves to date. I've actually ordered two!
