5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem - Challenger For Any Unbranded Tablet!!!, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A1CS 7" RAPID5® DUAL-CORE (2*1.4) TABLET - ANDROID 4.1 JELLY-BEAN - CAPACITIVE MULTI TOUCH SCREEN - SUPPORTS YOUTUBE, IPLAYER SITE (Personal Computers)
The spec is so much higher in terms of not only having a larger/quicker processor but DUAL CORE @ 2 x 1.6 ghz(!) - most others in this price bracket boast 1.2 - 1.5 ghz SINGLE core that other tablet reviews claim to be quick. In addition it also has the support of dual core graphics compared to single and although internal memory isn't the largest on the market by any stretch you have to keep things in perspective. You would need to spend half as much again to equal, let alone better the 8gb with the competition. Build quality, even if not judging relatively on price, is solid. The only shortcomings I have found are on certain light coloured screens when idle ie no graphics/game playing/video/screen savers (which is very seldom as you can imagine) you can see some light dimples from the rear of the screen from very light touches in certain positions on the rear casing. In general use I haven't noticed this at all, just when initially setting up with the white or grey background screens. I have just found there is no GPS or Flight Mode settings (even though the instructions give details of both) however these are not essential for the type of use I need (my son will be using it as a cheap alternative to the Kurio and I will be using as a general tablet for surfing and if I'm really honest some game play around the house. Since I purchased the price has not surprisingly risen again, it had been on sale £10 cheaper than the £69 some odd pence I paid and is now £10 higher still BUT still represents very good value for money. I have tried the wireless at the furthest point in my house from the router and it still picks up fair signal as well as my branded netbook and touch screen phone so I would not be worried about some of the other reviews which I think mainly relate to the previous metal backed types of these tablets - Jellybean OS runs smoothly and has caused no issues at all. I have since recommended this to several friends and at least one of which has purchased 2 units and another will purchase shortly for each of her 2 sons for xmas (it says it all I am not worried as I know they will work well and if not A1CS are UK based and have given me good feedback to any question or issues I have had). Buy with confidence BEFORE the price gets any higher!!!
