Could be better......could be worse,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: M009S 8GB NATPC M009S 8GB Capacitive Android 4.2 (JELLY BEAN) , 7" ,Dual Core (2 x 1.5 GHz) Super Slim Android Tablet PC with Responsive Capacitive Screen - Flash Player 11.1 - Compatible with BBC iPlayer / Youtube / Facebook - HD 2160P - now with 8GB Storage and SKYPE VIDEO callingI'll get the negative out of the way first ...
The charger it came with charged the Tablet fine - but whenever i used it, the Tablet would not turn on while it was connected, and still not for an indeterminate time afterwards. If i connected it while it was turned on, the Keyboard went mental while trying to type. The USB cable it comes with charges it - but ridiculously slowly .... through trial and error i've ended up using a dedicated USB mains cable - that is actually a Charger for a Blackberry. This works a lot better than both the other two.
I've been experiencing audio sync issues when watching or streaming video. I have a 40mb connection and N router, so it's not that ...the Micro SD card is class 10, so it's not that ... This is the case in several different media player apps, regardless of audio setup, or wether it's on the flash memory or SD card.
Video streaming can be hit and miss on certain sites. 4od is a stinker, and youtube sometimes works better through the browser ... and sometimes works better through the app.
Some Apps in the Android market will not install on it - mainly Keis Air (for wireless file movement)
About 10 different picture viewing apps (including the built in one) I tried would not display any photos stored on the SD card. (it could see them if i browsed to the folder, but not open them) I had to move them to the flash memory.
Onto the Positive..
Build quality and screen are fantastic. The screen is very responsive. Fairly quick in operation - and despite the issues i've had.. it's a steal for just over £100.
If you have a Galaxy S2 phone - you'd be better off buying a high capacity micro SD card, and mini usb-HDMI adapter (phone to TV) - and you've got the same thing without any of the problems (and saved £60 odd)

I've got two of these and don't have the charging problems, but have seen audio sync issues playing ripped DVDs.

And where do you buy a Samsung Galaxy for £40, without a £40 per month contract? Outright sale, £109 for the NATPC versus £400+ for a Galaxy S2. Save £60? I don't think so!

I clearly said 'IF' you have a Galaxy S2 Phone.

I appreciate your posts. I know next to sod all about this stuff so it's great that you can help as I don't have a smart phone but I'd like to access the internet on the move and need to research before I spend.

I have just read your helpful post, thank you and it was obvious to me where you were coming from regarding save £60, some chocolates on here lol thanks again.
I am still wondering about the i pad 3 as I own a business am wanting to put price lists on it to save carrying a big folder but I will have another think?

as an internet novice with a cheap old phone that wants a cheap alternative to i- pad would you recommend this to anyone or is there now better versions of this cheap tablet out there and if i get this or something similar is there anywhere that i can find out step by step how to use it and avoid problems dont want to do anything special on it just the usual internet sites but on a screen thats bigger than a phone and has a keyboard as i hate touch screens

I'd recommend the Asus Google Nexus 7, with a bluetooth Keyboard (sold separately) It's costs a little more, but the vast improvement tin quality would be worth it.

I chose the free internet booster with T mobile for my HTC contract phone. Where I can't get free wifi, I tether my netbook to the mobile via bluetooth and get free internet on the move that way.
