I couldn't be more impressed with this tablet. Initial impression when opening the packaging is that the build quality is similar to that of an Ipad and the whole experience continues in that vein. I've only had the unit a day but have tried to give it a decent work out by watching things on You Tube and ITV net player. Unfortunately when I tried to download the BBC iplayer app it says it is incompatible before you start the download. I haven't yet tried if I can watch BBC iplayer on the BBC website instead of using the app (I'd have to wrestle the tablet from the rest of my family to try that). It plays Angry Birds and Temple Run without problems and I even played Temple Run whilst simultaneously downloading 5 other apps and it worked flawlessly. The wifi is very fast and picked up my network easily. I've also connected it to the internet using the 3G on my phone (HTC Desire S) as a WI-FI hotspot and it worked perfectly.
The clarity of the screen is superb and it can be viewed from any angle. The biggest compliment I can give this tablet is that my son had used a different android tablet and despite my protesting not to be an "I-clone" he was determined he was going to buy an Ipad. One hour with the Momo8 IPS and he's asked me to order him one too!!! In my opinion the 8 inch tablet is a better size anyway because although 7" tablets can seem a little small abnd 10 inch seem like you might as well have a laptop, the 8 inch just sits nicely in one hand.
I've had to think hard for some negatives and I can only think of two minor niggles. Firstly the charger lead isn't very long so I had to plug it into an extension lead to comfortably sit and use it whilst charging. Secondly, Although everything important is in English, it comes preloaded with a lot of Chinese apps and widgets that took me a little while to delete and I've experienced a couple of notifications that have chinese writing next to them. It really doesn't make a difference but I'm trying to find out how to get rid of them.
I certainly wouldn't let these minor niggles put you off though. This tablet is not just amazing for the money, it is amazing. I wouldn't swap it for an Ipad (but I am admittedly an Android fan). Delivery from "Big Tech" was next day even though I only paid for standard delivery.
What more can I say. I was so impressed I've ordered another one 6 hours after it got delivered!
