Binatone HomeSurf 705 review

 

An Android tablet for under £100. What could possibly go wrong?

Decent build quality ; Cheap

Unforgivable touchscreen ; Serious lack of apps available ; Low-resolution screen ; Out-of-date software

Expert review by:

Binatone Homesurf 705

 

Sometimes having a bad tablet is worse than having no tablet at all. Enter the Binatone Homesurf 705…

It costs under £100 ; Great video codec support

Abysmal display ; Resistive touchscreen ; Underpowered CPU ; No GPS ; No video output ; No Android Market ; Outdated OS

and it does little to stand out, but it doesn't creak like a cellar door when flexed and doesn't offend the eye with its poor design choices. So far, so good.

You miss out on one of the main benefits of the Android OS –

It's cheap; can be used as an e-reader

Dreadful display, really slow chip; no access to Android market

Binatone's best known for home phones, but can its £99 Android tablet take on the iPad?

Yes, it’s cheap, but that's literally the only positive. Outdated, tacky and painfully slow

Binatone HomeSurf 7 Android tablet

 

Review If 2010 was the year of the Apple iPad [1], this year will, if Motorola, HTC, HP and others have their way, be when everyone else gets in on the touchscreen computer act. Binatone has made an early strike with its super-low priced machine that's...

Although it’s great to see competent computing power in a light, well-priced machine, it’s hard to recommend the HomeSurf Tablet 7. It works well as an e-book reader, but doesn’t compare to the similarly-priced Kindle. The Android system is effective...

Consumer review by:

worst ever purchase

 

only had this product for 1 hour before it stopped working, and even following the instructions to the letter it just would not work so took product back and got a refund.

Consumer review by:

Struggled to operate

 

I bought this as I was after a book reader (kindle) but thought that this would offer extra functions for accessing the net. I wanted an IPAD but struggled to justify the price.

Consumer review by:

Cheap and nasty

 

The screen went on the first one I had and I exchanged it for another, the power socket started causing me grief not charging up when it was supposed to and then I accidentally dropped it and the screen shattered so cheap and nasty
