My dad bought my mom and I both one of these tablets and I really hate that he wasted his money. I had a kindle keyboard for reading e-books and was looking to up-grade to something a little advanced, and he wanted something to keep mom off his kindle fire hd. Mom hardly touches her tablet because it is so slow (she hardly has anything on it and it is still SLOW), and it keeps going into safe mode and she has no idea how or why.
Now as for my tablet. What a joke. I can't turn the tablet all the way off because if I do it won't load back up properly (see pictures) and I have to hit the reset button on the back. As a matter of fact I have to use the reset button so many times that I had to attach a safety pin to the tablets case just so I would always have something to trip the reset switch.
Apps take forever to load half the time, if they load at all.
The tablet does NOT have google play on it. It does have 1Moble Market, Amazon App store and GetJar (never used that one) but there are still some apps that are only on iTunes or Google Play. Not ALL apps will work with this tablet either.
There is a symbol on the menu bar that looks like a cell phone signal strength indicator, but no point in it as the tablet can only use wi-fi that I have seen.
There is NO rear facing camera and no dedicated button to take pictures which means the only pictures it will take are selfies because trying to take a picture of something else is impossible.
I like to read (or play a game) whenever I have a spare moment and this tablet makes that almost impossible. I actually find myself wishing I had kept my kindle, but sadly I sent that to my fiance when I go the tablet.
The company's customer service leaves a lot to be desired too. I had the same issue others have mentioned with the headsets not fitting. I messaged the company and they were really good about telling what to do (just push really hard, they make it tight on purpose so it doesn't wear out too fast is what they said) but I have had to contact them regarding the issues I am currently having (the freezing and not loading properly) and their generic "cookie cutter" solution is for me to do a hard reboot and lose all my apps, files, and information. No acknowledgement about the icons not loading, no comment about my having to use the reset so much. Not even a sorry you are having issues. The response e-mail from them actually started out "Hello, Please perform a factory reset on the tablet:" which is why I refer to it as a "cookie cutter" solution.
My advice.....save your money. When it comes to electronics, you really do get what you pay for.
