Having two iPads and knowing that our daughter wanted a tablet, but could not afford $400 to $500, we took a chance on the Trio after reading reviews and checking it out at a few stores. For the money, this is one dynamite tablet. with a big bright high resolution screen, 16GB of memory for music and photo, webcam, Wi-Fi and Android 4.1, it has been a big success in our family. Google Play store provides games, books, apps and more. videos and YouTube are almost as good as our iPads and this even has a bigger screen. Very impressive, might even buy another
I love this tablet. It is fast and easy to use. I am glad I decided to go this route for a tablet purchase because I know that my kids will be using this tablet as well, and at the price I don't mind if they do. Plus this tablet has Google play on it makes getting apps for me really easy. So far it has been good for watching movies and playing games. I have not been a super tech savvy person in the past but it seems to be going well with this tablet. If you are looking for something that is easy to use straight away I would reccomend this tablet!
So, I'd been shopping around for a good tablet for a while. I wanted something I could use at home to watch movies, and also when chilling at Starbucks that was also powerful enough so that it wouldn't chug along like my cell phone....but I also didn't want to spend a ton of cash like on a Galaxy.
So, this Stealth g2 has great specs. When I bought it, I did have a bit of trouble on start up, but I called tech support and "Evie" was amazing. She was really sweet, helped me out with the issue and got me going.
I love it, works great. Might buy one for my sister.
I purchased my trio a few days ago I was very pleased on how easy it explained the set up , the price was most def, another outstanding deal,I did come across on a minor issue i didnt know how to do the wifi connection i spoke to a supprt member by the name of Penny she walked me throgh the steps and made it so easy to she was very helpful and very polite . I am pleased to say the awesome tablet and awesome customer support all on one product is great...
Ordered this online Cyber Monday, received Friday the 6th. Charged it that night and set up the next morning. Several complains I read here are because people didn't take the time to read the manual (which is also conveniently loaded on the tablet), or have expectations of this tablet compared to a $200+ tablet. Auto rotate DOES work, you just have to turn it on. Easiest way is to click the time (pops up a box), click the time again (opens frequently used settings). Turn on auto-rotate. I use it to play games on, read books, watch videos (screen resolution is actually pretty good, again remember this isn't a multi-hundred dollar tablet people). Another complaint seems to be that you can only see the screen well if it's straight on, kinda, but my 500 dollar laptop does the same thing. If you want all the perks of an ipad, galaxy or surface, then spend the money and buy one of those.
1. speakers not loud......requires headphones and it sounds perfectly with headphones.
2. mic is awesome ...was able to skype with it about 5ft away
3. works almost like a laptop except that editing docs for free is not possible (microsoft docs)
The tablet is great for what I use it for- mostly browsing the web and streaming movies/videos. The Google Play seems to have a great array of apps and games, but haven't yet downloaded many yet. There hasn't been any signs of lag thus far. You can't beat the price for this one!
once you log into a wireless device it remembers it and will automatically log on at another time for you. very quick response time. thought the battery had a short life but was not logging off of wireless once i was out of range and did not close down open programs, now its fine. Also when it gets slow i had to close down many open programs and its speed was back. for the price it cant be beat i spent more than the Walmart price here and i still think its worth it.. the tech support was great, they were the ones that told me to do the above. Kate was the support tech i spoke with and was very helpful. took the time i needed in order to resolve issues i was having. i feel very comfortable with the unit because i was reassured by Kate that if there is ever a problem that i am having i can always reach them for assistance.
I purchase three of these on Black Thursday WalMart Online and received them already today. Kudos on the shipping!
As a techie, I was a bit reluctant to get these...however for the price I was persuaded with the only real negative I saw was the screen resolution. Unfortunately upon receiving the three tablets, I booted each one up to find that only one of the three touchscreens is working properly. Two of them are either not calibrated correctly or the digitizer is not installed correctly as the top portion (.5 inch on 1st, 1.5+ inch on 2nd) would not recognize any touch input. I have tried some calibration tools, factory reset through settings menu, and factory reset through (+) (pwr) button. None of these has corrected the issue.
While the tablet appears to be a very good value for the price, I would caution that the quality control and build quality is quite poor. If you get a good one, it may be worthwhile. With my experience I was quite surprised to find the 2 out of 3 that I ordered had the same issue to varying degrees.
I expect I will return all three of the tablets, as the issues with 2 out of three of the tablets does not give me much confidence in the 3rd lasting very long.
I bought this tablet as part of the Black Friday sale for 1/3 off the list price. I had some trepidations after reading the negative reviews, but the price was too sweet to ignore, and Walmart's return policy guaranteed that they would exchange it if it was defective. The unit arrived securely packed and undamaged in shipment. Upon opening the package, the unit was in perfect visual condition. I charged it overnight and had to charge it again because the charger plug tended to slip out and disengage. Once charged, the unit operated as well as I could expect with a TFT display. The text and pictures were large and easy to read. The response was good. The manual warns that if you load it with a lot of apps, its response will slow. Although the storage is 16Gb, the manual states the useable storage will be less. I installed a 32Gb chip, making this a moot point. The only shortcoming I noted was the camera. The images appeared ghostly. Battery life may suffer because of the large screen. All in all, I'm pleased with my purchase.
Immediately I was struck by the screen's ultra narrow viewability at anything other than perfectly center, no tipping or colors change (purple turns to green, black turns to white). And, apparently, Trio's quality control was out to lunch when mine came through. The screen had a dead zone, no touch detected the width of a quarter from top to bottom about 1 inch in from the left. Making most menus and a lot of the keyboard non usable.
What a shame, all that hardware under the hood and skimp so bad on the screen...
I'm just glad I caught it on the black Friday deal, otherwise id' be a refund instead of a replacement.
I've just had this tablet for a few days and it is working great! Plenty of apps available with Google Play Store. This is a great value for the price.
Nice tablet so far. I've enjoyed having it for 3 weeks. Camera is the only thing that I don't like so far. Quailty is not there, but overall I like it.
I received this tablet as an early Christmas present on December 5, 2013. This is my first tablet ever and I am very pleased with this product. The Trio Stealth G2 10.1 has certainly met my expectations. The speakers are not that loud unless you are sitting in a quite room, however, connecting external speakers or headphones to it will give you a much better sound. It is very user friendly and would be great for someone just getting their first tablet. The screens are very visible with brilliant color. This product is so new that it does not have a case that is made specifically for it so you have to buy a universal case. I really have no problems with this tablet. Thinking about getting my mother one for Christmas and now I may even have to buy one for my 4 yr old because he feels the tablet is "ours" and not "mine". If you purchase this for a gift or yourself I don't think you will be disappointed. Great buy for the price!!!
I just purchased the Trio Stealth G2 for my sister for Christmas. I loaded a few aps on it with no issues. Then when I loaded the Netflix Ap, it froze up. I turned it off and restarted it, went into the Netflix ap again. It started making a loud squealing noise and locked up again. So I turned it off again and have never been able to get it back on. It's stuck on the Trio Stealth G2 screen. I tried the hard reset and it still won't boot all the way up. I called technical support. When I finally got through, I was the 11th caller on hold and it said my hold time would be 26 minutes. 11 callers on hold is an indication that there are others with issues too. When I finally got through to the tech guy, he had me try the hard reset just as I had already been doing and it still wouldn't work. I'm returning this tablet to Walmart today. Very disappointed.
CONS: Touchscreen keyboard is blurry. Tablet froze almost immediately and wouldn't turn back on.
Fast, Excellent Battery Life, and Easy to Use! My kids and I love it!!!
Had another Android tablet, hated it. Slow clumsy and out of date. None of that applies to the G2. Very happy.
Very easy to set up, read, surf, hold and type -- it's light, clear, and affordable. Great features, with some bells and whistles like front and rear cameras. Exactly everything you want in a tablet for the family. So glad we got it!
I was really disappointed with this tablet. The camera did not work properly. It appeared as if you were taking pictures with a heat signature camera. It would also freeze up and I would have to shut down and back on . I have only had it 5 days and I am going to try to return it to the store tomorrow.
I bought this tablet online a few weeks ago and have really enjoyed it! I use it for school and entertainment and it does everything I need it to. I had a few questions but Cole in the tech department cleared them up immediately. That guy deserves a raise, and you owe it to yourself to buy this.
