Get budget tablet, but you need to be patient


"This is a great little tablet but it is a bot slow so needs time to process things. When you click some thing you need to wait for the action to take effect. "

Good product but beware the battery life!


"Does what it says on the tin but dispute their claims of up to 20 hours battery life. More like 10. And I have only added one app."
