The music app that’s baked in gets the job done nicely - it categorizes all your music by genres, artists, songs, and albums, plus it has really neat full screen album art.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The 8-inch screen size offers plenty of space for even desktop versions of some websites, but the low resolution makes it hard to read tinier fonts, so you’d still need to zoom in to be able to comfortably read most text.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
In fact, it’s features such a narrow screen bezel that you can easily hold with just one hand, and it even fits in some jacket pockets, which is a plus for an 8-inch tablet.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
You can also shoot in 720p (“Fine quality” in the camera settings), and 480p (Normal), and both produce more reasonable framerates, but they also lack in detail, and the quality is sub-par.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)


You can use the SIM card for mobile data, though, and there’s even a SMS text messaging app.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The tablet also features a very basic, 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front camera that will come in handy in video chats.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
In daily use, just navigating around the interface and running basic apps like browser and email, it runs fairly smoothly, almost without a stutter.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)


The camera app itself opens quickly and is relatively simple, without any in-depth manual settings.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
It does feature a barebones 2-megapixel main camera (flash is nowhere to be found), and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) front camera, but these are better suited for video chats rather than being a camera replacement.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The actual quality of the recordings is nothing to write home about, but we appreciate the fact that at least there is a front-facing camera.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)


It has very low amount of detail and is choppy at just 20 frames per second.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
One final detail that you should know about the screen is that - unlike other popular tablets - it does not feature oleophobic coating, which means that it collects a lot more fingerprints, and can get quite messy (you’d need to get a cloth to clean it up often).
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
Disappointingly, images captured on the 2-megapixel shooter look lifeless, lacking sorely in saturation, and unsurprisingly, detail is shockingly low.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)


That’s because of the fact that this tablet features mobile data connectivity at a price point where most other manufacturers offer Wi-Fi-only solution.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
There might also be an even more affordable Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet that we did not test.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
It’s aimed at budget buyers looking for a tablet with the option for mobile data connectivity (we tested a model with 4G HSPA, but there might be a Wi-Fi-only version as well) at a low price.
