Great for the money!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cube U30GT - 10.1 inch HD (1280*800) IPS display 1.6GHz dual core CPU quad core GPU RK3066 android 4.0.4 ice cream sandwich tablet bluetooth, wifi,1GB DDR3 16GB storage, new google play store, flash player installed (Personal Computers)
The delivery took just 5 days directly from China, but something went wrong because the post services haven't advised me that the item arrived.
So, I had to pick it up at the post station, it stood there for 10 days which is the waiting period by law and after that is returned to sender :) I picked it up in the last minute!
Anyway, something went wrong and I suppose that the fault is the Portuguese post services no doubt about that.
So back to the begin, the delivery was really fast considering the distance.
I was brilliantly wrapped in massive bubble plastic sheet. It was a hell of a job to open it :)
The equipment box arrived a bit dented but considering the packaging job and the huge distance that has traveled (over so many hands (and some of them aren't really that nice handling boxes) I've to consider it a good packaging job.
Inside the box:
Two sets of headphones/earplugs
A charger with EU adapter
An U30GT 10"
Two USB adapters
The bad wireless reception, is one of the most spoken characteristics.
Well, I've tested inside the house and outside with a normal router and It handled OK.
But I guess It could have better reception.
Straight out of the box and after standing fifteen days, five of them were traveling and other 10 days at the post facilities! I've used it between 4 to 5 hours without stop. Install/uninstall apps and running games like hungry birds...
No heating problems at all, even when charging and using at same time!
I charged one time till now took me two and half ours maybe three hours maximum to reach 99%.
I've transferred 500 Megabytes a few times with an excellent speed (no issues at all)
I've watched some HQ videos at youtube without any problems.
Fluid without glitches.
The speaker it will do the job (not a crystal clear sound).
If you set it properly it's possible to use it without being annoying.
Don't expect an excellent sound from the speaker!
The headphone jack can get you an average sound quality/volume without problems.
Bottom of line keep your expectations low about the sound quality/volume.
Good quality display, I've seen far worst in higher quality devices at double of the price.
Sharp and bright It can make your eyes bleed :)
I guess is not that good for reading but with some work you can manage a few hours of reading.
Personally, I don't like to use earplugs.
The quality is a bit less than average I would say cheap.
What I haven't tested YET:
HDMI, SD CARD.
WIFI connectivity 3.5* 4* maximum.
SPEAKER quality/volume 2* 2.5* maximum.
DISPLAY brightness/sharpness etc 4* 4.5* maximum.
CONNECTORS USB/HDMI/Sound Jack etc 4.5*
PROCESSOR/MEMORY 4* to 4.5* based on my experience
Building quality is very decent It looks nice despite the logo at the back and some paper stickers around the metal frame to control warranty :) (mine came lose)
Perhaps, the cube firmware is the worst scenario.
Connectivity and speed is ok, using it and charging at the same time with no problem at all.
