To be fair to the product 179GBP for a tablet that has a decent size (9''), decent graphics and a good memory is pretty good, it is about the same price as most decent 7 '' tablets
Yes there is a partition issue, but I downloaded about 15 apps (facebook, skype, few games, netflix and weather etc..) and there is still half of the 500Mb left
If you are looking to load the tablet with 200 apps, you will have a problem
If you are looking for a good price tablet, with good grahics, to surf the net and watch videos and have a decent amount of apps on, it is a good tablet to have, and to be honest the only one at that size and price range at that level of quality
As mentioned by other reviewers, the miniscule 512MB internal default storage for apps really limits what you can do with the tablet. Even if you move all downloaded apps to the SD memory, every app still uses up some of the precious internal memory and it soon runs out.
The onboard cameras befit the price: noisy, grainy and lacking in range. The video camera takes very jerky videos for the first few seconds and then seems to catch up afterwards.
However, as an e-reader, Web browser, online video player, and for doing Facebook, it works well enough. The standard size USB host port works well, but is occasionally picky about what memory sticks it would recognise.
The battery seems to last about 7 hours of constant use with the wifi on and just a bit longer with it off.
Google Chrome doesn't want to work on it :(
In summary, a reasonable but sluggish budget tablet.
This tablet does most things the great, high expensive tablets do. Great for surfing, for apps, youtube, checking emails, playing games...it does all that and more. Ok yes it can be sluggish to boot up but don't most things. The only negative is that you can tell this isn't a Ipad but that's about it. Don't buy this on the pretence your getting a substitute for the ipad because you wont, but if you just want something to have decent amount of apps and to surf the net...this is the one for you. The internal storage, yes is small but I moved all things over to the SD card and I have installed a cleaner app that wipes away cache taking up much needed storage space. I have over 30+ apps and it still works as smooth and quick the day I brought it.
(Make sure you carefully read all the instructions and comments in the above thread and understand what you are doing)
Once I added the firmware the majority of issues were removed and honestly the only problem that remains is that internet browsing is a little crashy. But as a media playing device it's spot on and I can read, watch films, listen to music and browse comics to my hearts content.
