Although this is a very inexpensive tablet (available for $69.99 @ WalMart stores), keep in mind you don't get a lot for that price.
Things to consider:
1: This tablet does NOT have Bluetooth. I personally don't care as I don't need Bluetooth support for how I use it
2: The tablet has 8GB storage space. Not 8GB of RAM. And it's split as 1GB for the OS, and 7GB for file storage.
3: By default, any apps you download will try to install where the OS is installed. Only a few apps, and you will get errors that it's out of space. You can go into settings/storage, and move everything to the "SD Card" option (If you put an SD card in the SD Card slot, it shows up as "External TF Card" so you get more options
4: Many apps are incompatible. This is not EFUN's fault, but more the developers of those apps not making them available to tablets with the 8000x480 screen size. You would run into the same problems with the Archos Arnova 7, Sony notebook 7, Coby MID7015 tablet, Skytex Skypad, and many others as they have the same screen size. This means apps like TuneIn (which I use religiously) and dozens of others will not install without some light 'hacking'. This may change, but not likely since it's a low-resolution screen compared to most newer tablets.
5: This tablet does get a bit warm when running 'intensive' applications or heavy downloading. I saw one post where a woman feared starting a fire. I doubt that as all these devices have to pass testing to even be sold in the US. It may simply get warmer than expected.
6: There is NO rear facing camera. only a front-facing one.Read more ›
So I called and it said I had to register the product on their website to even talk to technical support. So I try to register it, but it needs all this information off of the box. No where on the box, or in the owners manual did it say to register it before discarding the box.
So I called anyway and explained the problem to them after being on hold after 30 minutes. They did not even apologize for not responding to my previous attempts to contact them! The lady on the phone then told me I needed a receipt if I was going to get it repaired. Even though it was a gift, I need a receipt to get their horrible product repaired. How about I am in possession of it, so you fix it? I have it, why do I need to prove it further then owning the product? For a repair. I am not trying to get money back, just a repair.
I told her once again it was a gift, so I did not have a receipt, so she told me to get the person who gifted it to me, to go back to the place of purchase and have them find a 6 month old receipt. None of this makes sense.
I purchased one of these for my high school daughter for lesson plans last August. She used & enjoyed it daily through Christmas, but then the headphone jack died. I told her to live with it as the unit worked for the stated purpose and the speakers still played (always very low). In March the unit started sticking in a boot loop. I brought it up in diagnostic boot and found the internal memory had stopped functioning so the OS was not there to load. I called the warranty number but nobody in California ever answered (just hold music). I'd get a call back the next day and an answer to emails, so I assume that required daylight in China not 9-5PST as stated. They were NICE. After two weeks of email, I did get a repair ticket & I mailed it back. They did replace it last month on the 24th. Fair enough and any small electronic can be bad. This unit was a newer operating system and faster --BUT ---
Within 10 days the unit no longer functioned at all, not even diagnostic boot. I will probably just trash it or crack it open to see the poor assembly quality out of curiosity. Many of these are assembled with masking tape inside. That's 2 that are bad. The 2nd one worse than the 1st.
