In the last month I purchased Six HKC 7" 8/32GB tablets from WalMart. I couldn't say enough about the item and the quality/specifications. I bought 6 of them for grandkids and family and it definately is and will be a Christmas gift to remember. For me personally, I wanted one with Bluetooth for possible keyboard addition and was excited this item had that ammenity as well as a front AND rear camera that the $240 Nexus 7 w/google Android did not. But this, like Nexus 7 has bluetooth, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, etc. But I'm not happy with this. Opened up; charged; set up like I did the HKC's and thought all was well. However, this product will not connect with my Wi-Fi which is less than 20 feet from my desktop computer. The HKC would, work behind close doors, 40 feet into the master bedroom. I didn't understand it. I called my service provider for my home internet, he took over my computer and went into my WiFi settings....all was well. Nothing amiss. I then went and unwrapped a waiting Christmas gift. a HKC 7" Tablet, I'd gotten for my grandchild. I'd already charged it before wrapping, so I sat in my easy chair, turned it on, and BINGO! Connected to my WiFi 20 feet away. Went into the Master Bedroom, closed the door...same result WiFi.
So, what can I say? I can't have a Tablet that won't work or connect to the internet in my easy chair, but instead unless I'm standing infront of the desktop. I am sooooo very bummed. I was very hopeful that this would be my "dream" item. The day before this was delivered my friend ordered the more expensive Nexus 7" with b/t and all. I don't have the nerve to ask how WELL that one works as I was bragging that I spent a $100 less and got a front facing camera to-boot! I can't say if this item, in itself is a fluke. Or the whole model of this, and/or brand. But I'm sending it back and I'm saddend as I loved the kids 7" tab and this is such a disappointment. I would try this brand again, if they found there was a flaw and could correct it. But maybe by then I will have found the perfect Tablet or maybe back to my original thought a 11-13 inch laptop. Time will see. Good Luck!
