Display is excellent for a 10" screen
on June 18, 2018
Purchased this tablet for when I need a display larger than my cell for browsing, movies, ebooks, and text editing. Main feature is screen quality/resolution and wide view angle. This tablet's display is excellent for a 10" at the price.
Normally use my cell as a wifi hotspot. Bluetooth keyboard (Arteck Arteck HB030B Universal Slim Portable Wireless Bluetooth 3.0 7-Colors Backlit Keyboard with Built in Rechargeable Battery, Black
) and speakers (oldie but goldie Jam Classic). All Bluetooth speaker and keyboard hotkeys, ctrl, back/fwd/play/pause buttons work as expected. Bluetooth, USB, and cloud file transfers work fine.
Marshmallow OS takes up about 5gig, after installing Amazon Prime video, (Netflix already installed), ebook reader, file editor and a few other apps there was 10Gig left on the internal drive.
Plugged in a brand new 32Gig SD Card which worked immediately right out of the package. Removing the panel to insert the SD drive took a bit of tugging, was fearful of breaking my new toy but all went well.
Movies stream/downloaded at the NetFlix/Amazon 'Good' setting view really well. Higher data rates/resolutions look a little better (maybe? hard to tell).
The processor is snappy and very responsive - faster than most tablets I have used - no keypress delays and switching between screens/apps is a breeze. In my case, am not running much in background so about half of the 2Gig memory is free; your mileage may vary.
The built in speaker/mic is servicable in a pinch but will want to use speakers, buds, or headset. Cameras are pretty much what you would expect from 2mp front/5mp back.
Battery life is good; I downloaded four - 45 minute TV episodes while tablet was charging to 100%. Played all 4 episodes with wifi off, screen brightness around 1/3rd. This used up 50% of the battery. Then streamed two episodes across wifi which brought battery down to 15%, for a total of six episodes.
Would recommend this tablet as a cell phone accessory for people that wish to see the 'bigger picture' without lugging around a 10" phone all the time. Tablet has had no issues and exceeded my expectations. For my use case - this tablet is awesome!
