Minus half a star because: I bought this to replace my Nexus 7 Wifi only device. Although technically the same device with just the additional sim slot, the device behaves slightly different which is annoying. One glaring difference is the screen brightness adjustment which on this new one which adjusts between bright and ever so slightly less bright whereas my original one the brightness adjusted from almost dark to full brightness. Now I have to use an app called Lux to do the job (and not as well)
Other than that and if I had not previously owned one before, I'd say that this device is a gem and I can't believe that it's now so hard to buy. I love it, it's the perfect size, not too heavy feels like good quality in terms of build. I have been searching for months for a 4G alternative to my nexus 7 wifi and I always came back to this one because everything just works and looks better than any other 7 inch brands that I tested in stores.
Another couple of things worth pointing out that I had trouble finding answers to:
- can you install WhatsApp? YES YOU CAN! Although you can't do it through the app store (download the apk from whatsapp and then use a phone to receive the activation code).
- can you have multiple user profiles? Yes you can, I currently run 3 and it's really easy to switch between them.
