update: wifi droping returned,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Matricom® G-Tab Quantum 10 Android 4.2 HD+ IPS Quad Core Tablet PC (10.1-Inch IPS, WiFi, Bluetooth) (Personal Computers)
After reading all the great reviews I decided to get this bad boy. the tablet looks, beautiful the build quality is great white color look really nice in person. The ten inch led lps HD screen is crisp and has a 178° viewing angle(there is a protective clear plastic cover on screen if taken off its much more vivid and clearer u cant even tell is there.) plus there is a HDMI mini plug to connect to TV. the quad core chip set by all winner keep the tablet running smoothly.now let's talk about the operating system running on jellybean 4.2 .2, it is rooted out the box all you have to do is go on the Play Store and get this app called superuser which lets you download and install rooted app, its free and easy(its like jail breaking for android. Android rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets, and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain privileged control (known as "root access") within Android's subsystem.Rooting is often performed with the goal of overcoming limitations that carriers and hardware manufacturers put on some devices, resulting in the ability to alter or replace system applications and settings, run specialized apps that require administrator-level permissions, or perform other operations that are otherwise inaccessible to a normal Android user.). the battery life is good about 6 hours they say I'm getting about that if not more on regular use. there is wifi and Bluetooth but no internal GPS. the bottom line for a tablet for under $200 HD 10.1 inch with quad-core micro SD slot mini HDMI dual camera its light 1.4 lbs don't hesitate the tablet speaks for itself and everyone agrees pick one up you won't be disappointed, I'm glad I did.
Update: WiFi drops constantly, returned it

Wow, no one sees that these are phony reviews. They're slick and te reviewers have no history of posting reviews on other products. Beware.

Are you sure it is a phony review? He returned it in his review and it says Verified Purchaser from Amazon. It my be that Rudy does not buy lots of stuff. I am just saying, but thanks for the beware heads up. All things read on the internet should be looked at with caution.

I just purchased one and I also wrote a review. If you look you will see I have written many reviews. I am fairly happy with mine so far. For the price assuming it doesn't break it's a steal. I found a tablet with a slightly smaller screen, slightly higher clock speed processor, with the same Mali GPU on Focalprice but it takes a month to get here from China and I would guess no warranty. It also can accept a SIM card and receive 3G signals. I believe Matricom has made an accessory for this tablet so it too can get 3G via the micro-USB my guess. Since I purchased mine for $155 I also purchased a squaretrade warranty for 3 years. So far so good, but I have only had mine for about a week. I will update my review if it goes south, so to speak. I hope this helps. They did release a firmware update to fix the poor partitioning of the memory so they do listen to complaints. I assume they have some issues with production with some failures getting to consumers. Since they have a 1 year warranty, they should fix those though. But I haven't had to worry about that yet.

not this guy but amazon sends people free stuff and they review as if they bought it. Look for wordiness, a few small negatives, and that's your shill. Now if they would like me to be a shill, I have plenty of room for fishing rods, and I can write about capsizing. send me the boat.

I don't think Amazon itself sends free stuff to folks, from what I have observed, the companies, who sell stuff on Amazon, send free stuff to folks. I don't have a problem with this, assuming the reviewer reveals that fact in their review. I have noticed a few reviewers who reveal this in their review so I am fairly sure of that.
