Avoid Tablet Express tablets if you want anything long term
on October 22, 2013
This tablet started off as, Okay for the Price.
UPDATE: I opened my tablet to get the battery specs so I could search for a new battery. The description states it is a 3200mah battery. The battery inside the device shows it is 2200mah.
The sound is poor so some ear buds are a must have.
It is slow. Downloading apps (such as Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, etc.) would take some time. While an app, or update of an app, was being downloaded, you really could not do anything else like look at and download other apps or updates. The app pages would take what seemed like an eternity to open. It was basically do one at a time. (This was with only the tablet connected to the internet, and no other devices. Also the internet connection was used on other devices for the same function and was fasted with other devices. Bottom line, tablet was slow and internet connection was fine)
After about 5 months use, the battery life started shortening. I did not use this tablet for every day use (as it was slow for one thing). No web surfing or reading emails. ONLY downloaded apps from Google play and played these apps. The battery life shortened to 20 or so minutes from the time that battery was fully charged and removed from the plug, to when the unit would just shut off, without any low battery warning. The battery meter would also still be in the blue (orange being low). Plugging in the device and the battery meter that pops up for about two seconds would show a fairly high battery state of charge (as much as 80% at times). Turning the device on and it would state the battery was as low as 6%.
I contacted Tablet Express and they recommended I download and reinstall the firmware. I tried to do this but the tablet would not connect to the PC (could not find drivers on the web). Tablet Express informed me that the replacement warranty was 30 days and 60 for repairs. After that repairs would run about $65+ shipping. Would make no sense to pay another $65 to have this tablet repaired.
I purchased this tablet as a test before purchasing more for family members and this tablet failed in long time use after 5 months.
If you want a disposable tablet, then this may be the one for you.
