What is IPS?

IPS stands for in-plane switching. An IPS-LCD is a type of thin display that offers better viewing angles than TFT-LCDs. IPS-LCDs feature two transistors for each pixel, where TFT-LCDs use just one. This requires a more powerful backlight, which delivers more accurate colors, and allows the screen to be viewed from a wider angle. The downside is that an IPS-LCD may consume more power than a TFT-LCD. IPS-LCDs typically are found on high-end cell phones and portable devices. Apple's iPhone and iPad both feature IPS-LCDs, so does Nexus 7 tablet.

When I first got my hands on this tablet I didn't think this was going to be a great tablet. I was so wrong. The R8 really impressed me. It has a nice aluminum back. This tablet also has a great display. It has the same display as the iPad Mini. It also has a great battery life. It`s also running android 4.2.2. The R8 beat the iPad mini in a speed comparison.

Pros:
Nice screen size.
Screen display is impressive. (Nexus 7 Second gen display is nicer)
Great battery life
Looks just like the white iPad mini
Slightly faster than the iPad mini
Onscreen volume control
Very affordable tablet
Great Specs for the Price

Cons:
The side buttons that some time to get use too.

Comparison between R8 and iPad Mini

R8:Quad Core x4

iPad Mini: Core A5

R8: 1GB of Ram

iPad Mini:512MB of Ram

R8:1024x768 IPS

iPad Mini:1024x768 IPS

Overall I think this is a great tablet and the price makes it even better.

-unfortunately, i had to return it. there were a couple of problems with it- it arrived in safe mode and i didn't know what to do to get it to regular mode-- i sent an email using the 'contact seller' link- thru my account/orders page on amazon. tablet express responded quickly and helped me thru that- the tablet (dragon touch r8)- shut itself off and it became difficult to start it again- i had problems loading apps- even though there was still 12gb of the original16gb available- and even with a 32gb micro sd card in it- i would get pop-ups telling me i would have to delete some apps b4 i could download more apps.

so i contacted tablet express again- thru the amazon 'contact seller' link- again they replied quickly and courteously- they sent me a link so i could download a fresh install of jelly bean- they also provided a link to instructions and vids of how to replace my malfunctioning android operating system with a fresh install-- unfortunately, the file was corrupted and would not open.

so i contacted tablet express again- they again responded quickly and courteously - this time they informed me that their was nothing more i could do to fix the errors- and that i should return the tablet to them. they took care of scheduling ups to come pick up the tablet- and they paid for the return shipping--- ups came the next day to pick it up.

the tablet was built solid- an all aluminum case- a great screen- very fast processing- the perfect size to hold in 1 hand. i have a lenovo a2109 9" tablet- with a tegra 3 quad core- and this dragon touch r8 was much faster- more responsive..

Received my tablet today. First thing, I noticed the box was dirty and dented. After opening the box and taking out the tablet, I found a defect on the screen. When I turned on the tablet it was very difficult to see the defect but it was there none the less. I opened the instructions and saw that I was supposed to charge the tablet for 10 hours before use. When I plugged it in, I found that it was fully charged. I believe I was sent a tablet that had been returned for the screen defect. Something to consider when dealing with this supplier. I will be returning this tablet, I haven't yet decided on an exchange or refund.

I ordered another tablet as exchange wasn't a choice. Pleased with this one. Delivery time was awesome. Tablet works well, just learning the operation at present. The screen looks very good. I have set up facebook, and email to date. I've increased my rating to 3 stars reflecting an average of the two experiences.

If you know how to use Android and like it better than Apple, your on the right track with this tablet... Also, if you like the screen size format of the iPad mini but still would rather have an Android, then this definitely will suffice.

The best things about this tablet is #1 the price.
- very speedy with the quad core chip set.
- the screen quality is great. With an IPS display pictures and everything else just looks great.
- the option to set a screenshot right in the toolbar is very handy
- having Google Play store is priceless (don't ever buy any Android device that doesn't come stock with it, it will save many headaches)

The bad things about this device are tolerable and include:
- poor sound quality out of the single rear speaker
- having the power and volume rockers on the back
- using the cheap 2.5mm charging adapter (these are not made to last with careless hands)

I gave the tablet a 4 star rating because even with its flaws, to me it far out ways bending over to Apple and paying literally out your rear some something made in the same country in probably the building next door.

Who I would recommend buying this?

Probably not your kids for the proven fact that kids are not responsible enough to use this device charger without breaking the tip within a day or so. Unless you have a very responsible child that keeps things neat and tidy and takes care of their possessions, I would only recommend buying this for yourself or for a friend or relative you know who enjoys Android over Apple.

I personally love the tablet and plan on using it for work, Facebook, reading and perusing the internet.
