All this for £50!
on 2 June 2012
I brought this device for my 6 year old son so that he could watch CBBC on the iPlayer and watch the movies he wants to watch not the ones his little brother and sister want to.
The first thing to remember is this cost £50 not £500. If you unpack it expecting an iPad then not only will you be very disappointed you will also be an idiot. So if you keep your expectations around the £50 mark you will be fine.
Its made from Plastic all over but the quality of the moulding is very good and all the panels fit together nicely. The buttons work fine. Some might say they feel a little cheap but then you get what you pay for. The power socket seems a little fragile but if you are careful then it's fine. Micro SD slot is fine which is good as this will get a lot of use.
Surprisingly good. Yes it's not a spot on the iPads but you can't really expect it to be. It's very clear. You have to be a little firm with the touch screen but thats fine when you get used to it. I have used a lot worse. Brightness is good but I would not have it set to high as this will have a major effect on the battery life I suspect.
Only one front facing camera. For Skype it's great and works very well. Again I suppose it goes without saying that if you think this will replace you Digital SLR then you are the same idiot who thought this would be as good as an iPad.
It has an older version of the Android OS (2.2) but who cares it runs it just fine. Can feel a little sluggish at times but then it isn't the fastest machine and does't make out it is.
It's OK, not at all the fastest and I wouldn't recommend this unit for professional use. Web surfing and watching video's this unit is fine. Just keep an eye on the running apps.
About 2 hours of continual use. Don't leave home without the charger and get one for your car!
It cost £50! My kid loves it! I love it! As long as you don't expect an iPad you wil be fine.
