Ematic Genesis Prime EGS004-BL Review


Although a $79 tablet with Jelly Bean and Google Play access seems tempting, the Ematic Genesis Prime is sure to frustrate rather than delight.

Access to Google Play

Very blurry, low-res screen; Awful battery life; Dismal performance; Low-quality camera; Cheap design
