Alright, I did not purchase this tablet at walmart, I purchased it at staples. I don't know if a regular person would be crazy enough to buy this at best buy because even though the price of the tablet itself is the same, the 2 year accidental protection plan is $159.99 at best buy.
At Walmart it's $57 and at staples it's $99.
... FOR 2 YEARS.!
I got mine at staples and only had to pay about $80 because they had some deal where you get something percent off.
Anyways, I am not a techy person
I am an ordinary full time college student who is 20 years old.
I've never owned an ipad, I've fiddled with my aunts before
And I have phones that are on android
This is my first tablet ever, but I used to always keep my moms tablet that was on android.
I really like this tablet
It IS confusing though
I read lots and lots or reviews on this tablet so I knew what I was getting into
I originally wanted a touchscreen laptop, but fell in love with this tablet once I saw it.
I logged in which was easy
I copied all of my music from my mp3 player and put it on the tablet which was confusing at first, but then I figured it out and it copied it to xbox music even though I've never owned or played xbox before.
The whole personalization thing is a little complicated
There isn't as much customization as I thought there would be, but like I said, I have yet to figure everything out on the tablet yet.
I want to change the color of the tiles, but I don't know how.
I don't even know if theres an option.
(Oh yeah, and the tablet comes with NO DIRECTIONS.
Just wanted to through that in there. I really wish they'd give us directions especially since it's not as easy to figure out as android tablets or ipads)
You can delete tiles and move them to bigger spaces
I really like the webcam on the tablet
I was on it in the dark and it looked like I was in a room that was lit.
I played some games on it which was awesome... I think (I'm not a gamer) but from my experience it was so smooth and no lag at all.
I'm pretty sure the tablet will take some time to get used to it
I'm still trying to master pulling the other multitasking things from the side.
You can only do the split screen thing with 2 applications only.
To get to the desktop there should be a tile, or you can assign a tile from the apps menu.
I went on internet explorer on the desktop thing and like reviews said, you should only be on it if you bought the keyboard because otherwise it is a LITTLE hard. Not complicated, but for someone with bigger fingers, you might have a tough time.
I was playing with the touch keyboards in staples and it seemed like I could get used to them so I purchased a white one.
It's really good at picking up wifi.
In my room if I'm on my laptop, it can't pick up the connection.
It will only connect if I move it in a certain position then it will go away
On my android phones I can get connection in my room, but it is poor.
I was playing on the tablet in my room and the connection was excellent.!
I'm really happy about that.
I LOVE the dual kickstand it helps A LOT.
One thing that I HATE is that the screen is a fingerprint magnet.
It's so bad that I thought that my screen would stay ruined with prints
Because even when I rubbed it with something, it wouldn't come off or look clean.
I have a certain cloth so I'm going to try cleaning it with that, if it doesn't work I'm going to be very upset.
So PLEASE buy a screen protector.
You can get them on amazon instead of wasting $30 dollars on them in the stores.
Another thing I hate is that in desktop mode the keyboard won't automatically come up.
You have to click it at the bottom of the screen and click X for it to go away.
I's really irritating. i don't know if there is a way to make it pop up automatically when u wanna type something, but if there is I have yet to find it.
I guess that's another reason why they say to stay out of desktop mode if you have no keyboard.
Also in the camera sometimes a light comes on.
I don't know if it's flash or not, but when I turned on the camera a white light turned on in the back.
Also the sound is REALLY loud
I'm so happy it's loud
When I have my headphones in videos are louder on my tablet than on my imac!
And like others said there really are barely any apps.
That's okay for me because I'm not a big app person at all.
It doesn't have pandora, or spotify
But it may have SOME of the main ones.
Like I said I'm not an app person so I wouldn't really know.
All I do on computers/tablets is browse the net, listen to music, and do school work.
That's all I can really think of right now
If there is anything else I'll be sure to write.
I bought this tablet for fun and for school work once spring semester comes up.
I'll be able to use word and powerpoint (:
If I think or find out more I'll update!
