Have bought tablets before and they were no good by far this one is the best great product at a brilliant price . Wish I had of bought this one first would have saved a lot of money...

Easy To Use
Long Battery Life
I'm extremely happy with this product. It meets and exceeds my expectations. Light weight, fast speeds. Great Graphics
Size and weight are perfect. SD Card up to 32g. Beautiful display. IR blaster for controlling TV (just download an app you like) Not bothered by the dual core processor, get the quad core if you have
Adequate Storage
Power Cord is shorter than my Galaxy Note 2 Phone's cord
None so far. Wish apps were full functioning, but you can always go to the website via tablet to access features the apps don't. It has nothing to do with the tablet itself
Limited Compatibility

And I couldn't be happier. This tables is FAR more responsive than the T 700, which was supposedly the best Android tablet in that crowded field. The 1.5Ghz processor and 1.5 GB or RAM make this table
Memory Sd Hard To Put

Speakers are OK, but are both placed on the same side. Easily remedied with some headphones or external speakers

Great price and great product...

Not the best multitasker. Just make sure while playing big games such as dead trigger you close all apps running in the background
Cons So Far
Some Bad Free Apps
Would have been perfect if it had a quad core processor and an extra 0.5 GB RAM for spec bragging rights
