UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE 24TH MAY 2014
Oh dear oh dear oh dear.
One day my Starpad is working fine and I am a happy bunny. The next day android will not load. I tried resetting via the pinhole on the tablet and also manually (as explained by helpful youtube vids), but nothing doing. Having exhausted my knowledge I decided to contact Cambridge Sciences and claim under my 12 month UK warranty.
I sent them an email explaining the problems. They emailed back asking for details of purchase. I reply with said details , my email comes back undeliverable. I try again with my other email address. Same thing. I ring contact number listed on help page. Bloke answers, says it must be a problem with my email, sends me another email to prove there is nothing with their system, tells me to email again when it is sorted. So I try again. Still comes back un deliverable. Email service shows that the mails are being blocked by a spam filtering service. How odd since no other email I am sending is being blocked. Could it be that that Cambridge Sciences response to customers requesting repairs is to blacklist their IP addresses? Shirley not, I must be getting the wrong end of the stick. Except that every phone call now goes staight to voicemail and the recorded delivery letter I sent has prompted no response.
Moral of story - Starpads are decent little machines when they are working, but when they stop working there is no help to be had from Cambridge Sciences. The 12 month UK warranty isn't worth squat.
I have now ordered a new tablet made by a well known computer manufacturer from a prominent high street store with a 12 month guarantee I can have some confidence in.
Battery life: states 3 hours but this is an understatement, with heavy constant use such as watching videos and using several aps it will last this long but with light/moderate use it easily lasts a day or two
Memory: comes with around 8gb spare storage which is plenty, and the micro sd slot lets you plug in extra memory, you can easily pick up a 32gb card for £15 and you have a 40gb tablet!
Build quality: very nice screen and feels much more expensive than it is, it is a shiny black so fingerprints and dirt can be a problem, and there is also a tiny bit of flex in the screen if you place your hand on a specific part of the back but nothing bad
Performance: not lightning fast as and cant handle excessive amounts of processes due to a RAM of around 400mb, but the android system easily lets you choose to close apps on exit and control the number of processes that are being carried out to suit your needs. Running a handful of apps and processes it works perfectly smoothly and fine, YouTube and videos also run extremely well as well as games.
Sound: comes with a fairly big speaker on the back, its quite loud but at full volume can sound a bit tinny and crackly if you are listening to a loud track/game/video.Read more ›
What a revelation. As someone still using a seven year old Desktop computer running XP this tablet has really opened my eyes. It worked straight out of the box and was WiFi connected, to my internet service provider for browsing and E-mails, within minutes.
So far it does everything that it says on the box and if like me you are a little behind in your computer knowledge I recommend this device as a cost effective way forward. BUY ONE - YOU WON'T REGRET IT
Update: an address was given to return the item but it was an address from which the company would be moving 7 days later,although no warning was given. My parcel reached them the day after they moved,was signed for and then consigned to the Royal Mail returned items in Belfast from where I am presently trying to get it returned. Presumably the company had not left any forwarding address for mail delivered to them shortly after their move which is unbelievable. I am still trying to get a satisfactory response from the seller and will update further.
******Further update : Look up this company on the Consumer Action Group website before deciding to buy.
