First lets talk about the hardware and fit and finish: The tablet is surprising well made. I have tried out all 3 out the elsse tablets, this is the most well built. I had the android 2.2 verison and the white resistive touchscreen android 4.0 version still currently for sale on Amazon. The body of the device has a soft-touch finish which makes it comfortable to hold, and actually makes the device feel a bit classy as opposed to a cheap plastic housing you usually see on products in this price range.
The capacitive touch screen if fantastic, and very responsive to both my finger and my stylus. This was a welcomed change from the frustrating resistive touch screen on the other elsse tablets. The screen's responsiveness is on par with my Droid Razr or near just about. The resolution is what is to be expected which is surprisingly sharp. Screen gets an A+. The rear-facing camera is about what is expected, a low res grainy camera, but I like the fact they included it for functionality purposes (e.g. barcode scanning, etc). Its worth mentioning this is the only 4.3 inch tablet from elsse with a camera. While the camera isn't anything to blow you away or replace your digital camera by a long shot, it does it job reasonably well considering the price of the device, and still allows you to take some photos or snap a video on the go.
The tablet comes with a mini usb otg cable to plug in things like a keyboard and other devices like a ethernet adapter or gamepad as well. The tablet uses a mini (not micro) usb charging port. In my experience some of the inexpensive tablets and other devices that have micro usb ports tend to have inferior usb housings and tend to rip right off the the solder joints from the motherboard just from plugging and unplugging it. I have never had that problem with mini usb ports (like this tablet has). The other ports are a headphone jack, and TF card or microSD card slot. At 1.1ghz and 512mb RAM, and nice little Mali 400, the little tablet is sufficiently quick for most tasks, and I haven't noticed any lag is 2D games, and basic 3d games like Angry birds or fruit ninja. Its actually pretty snappy for most things. That said I don't try and load Dead Trigger on ultra graphics, like I do my Asus Transformer Infinity or Nexus 7. Netflix worked for me as well as Youtube flawlessly.
I did have the same issue with google play store as the other reviewers mentioned, where it would post an error saying that google play could not contact the server. Like others have said, you can fix this by adding a second gmail account to your tablet (you can leave the sync off for the second account as well). If for any reason you get the error again after adding the second account, remove the second account and then add it again, and it should get it working again. I noticed Google Play was also sluggish (just google play is slow not the whole tablet during the process) at times when downloading apps but would eventually download, so you may have to be a little patient, but once its downloaded it works fine. I suspect that the issue is related to the Google play version installed on the ROM as the cause of the issue, but its not a deal breaker if you just add a second gmail account. I downloaded all my apps on it fine.
I did notice one other quirk, but cannot say if this is my tablet only or the brand/speed of microSD, but I noticed my wifi would drop out intermittently and wouldn't reconnect when I put my 16gb Sandisk Extreme UHS 1 card in. When I popped it back out it would reconnect instantly and be fine. I'm not sure if it was because the card a class 10+/UHS 1 or what, but that may have been what caused the issue with wifi connectivity another reviewer mentioned. I'm guessing after this product has been on the market a little longer someone will probably have found/made a custom ROM for this little tablet that might fix these issues, but they are pretty minor.
I really love this little tablet even if it does lack a little polish on the software side of things. For the price its wonderful. I bought it to use as a "smart MP3 player" and it does that niche just fine, just remember to turn off wifi and reduce the screen brightness to minimum and you can get a few hours of life out of it. I will be doing more testing on battery life and will update with the results on the specifics. Despite it flaws I still have to give it 5 stars, as it is the best 4.3 inch media tablet I have used and packs some great features at a great price.
Just an update! I'm seeing a lot of reviews about the Google app store not working. I did experience this problem on my tablets. BUT!!!! After some quick research it was pretty to easy to find out that is not the TABLETS fault; IT is a GOOGLE PLAY ERROR ! GOOGLE PLAY IS HAVING A HARD TIME WITH THE NEW 4.0 PLATFORMS..... HONESTLY IT IS AN EASY FIX!!! SIMPLY ADD AN ALTERNATE OR FAKE GOOGLE ACCOUNT TO THE PHONE. THEN SIMPLY SWITCH BACK TO THE DEFAULT ACCOUNT YOU WANT TO USE FOR THAT TABLET. "Voila" Google store will work just perfect! BTW They've been bumped, dropped, and both are still working great! Very sturdy and holding up to the test****
The Pyrus 3.4" Tablet comes with 4GB internal memory, an A/C charging power supply, and a short USB cable for charging and communicating between the tablet and computers. WI-FI is, of course built in and works very well. The user guide is very minimal, has been written using some familiar Chinese grammar, but it is accurate and enough to get started. I got my Tablet yesterday and I think I've mastered it in my spare time. If you have ever owned a Tablet, with an Android ver. 4.0.1 before, then you already know how to use it.
The camera has the lens facing outwards so you can actually use it to take pictures without getting yourself in the shot. Photos made with this Tablet are two megapixels inn size and does take nice snapshots and video's. I'm not sure, the Tablet's screen resolution seems quite good to me, but it may not be as high resolution as say my 7' Kindle Fire HD. I'm a serious photo hobbyist so I won't be using the Tablet camera feature except in emergencies. Still, it's nice to have it with me all the time. One never knows when . . .
I have already ordered a 32GB class 10 mini card (TF Card). It comes with an SD adapter so I can fill it with videos, music and favorite photos from my computer and play them back on this Tablet. It can use a long list of familiar media formats and, of course, it can capture all from the net or in the real world. My Kindle doesn't have a card slot, but it is using only little over one GB for a couple dozen books and maybe three dozen apps. 4GB is quite a lot of memory for a Tablet.
I haven't tried yet, but I see no problems with using all the apps and Books I have for my Kindle to use on this Tablet. I have already used the tablet to look around the Amazon website.
The really big thing for me is that this Tablet can do just about everything my 7" Kindle can do and it's not a big thing. It fits in my front pocket. When using it I do have to use my reading glasses, and I make a few more typos. I have such big hands. While it does take a little more time to input data with the virtual keyboard, it's worth it for the convenience of always having it with me.
Battery life between charges: my impression is a little over three hours with the WI-FI on. Sound quality is okay, but not nearly as impressive as my Kindle. But I can't tell much difference using headphones (supplied).
In my opinion, at a price anywhere near the fifty dollars I paid, this Tablet is a steal.
Added on the same day: Using a stylus pen solves the virtual keyboard problem caused by my big fingers. With this pen it is as easy to use as my 7-inch Kindle.
I will amend this review if I have any more Tablet problems.
I have been having trouble getting my Amazon account to accept this thing. I had hoped that I would simply get all the APPs that I downloaded for my Kindle. It just hasn't worked out. I do seem to be accepted by Google, but I haven't done any business with them yet.
I'm not discouraged in the least. This mini Tablet is too small for use as a book reader - in my opinion. And I have Kindle Fire HD for that. I also have it for games and everything else.
What this Tablet is for me is portability of some very practicable uses. First, it comes with a clock/calendar APP, and other APPs, that replaces my old Palm Pilot. Second, it gives me Internet and email access with available wi-fi. Third, it accepts 32 gigabyte LP Memory Cards that can be loaded with music, videos, and still pictures. Third, It has a 2-megapixel camera with zoom and automatic flash functions. Forth, it has a built-in microphone. I can record notes - and it also works to accept words as commands - like when I tell it "eBay" it goes to eBay on-line.
No, this Tablet is not the best of the best. It is only a fifty-some-odd-dollar miracle of technology that can be with me all the time. I still like my 7" Kindle Fire HD better. But the Kindle does not have a built-in microphone, its camera lens is not on the side of the unit that I personally wanted it to be, and it does not accept a separate memory card, and it cost a lot. On the other hand, my Kindle has 32-GB internal memory (at extra cost), is a good size for reading books, is completely compatible with Amazon.com's offerings, and is much more comfortable for general use.
It is not my personal evaluation that should be your main guide. My rating is for my own use, but it is your choice based on what features you want. The technical features satisfy my uses and I purchased it as a back-up that I could always carry with me.. The technology works as intended by the manufacturers. The price is great. However, it is a compromise with respect to Kindles (or iPads) that sell for two hundred plus dollars.
My advice - especially if you are young - always buy the best of the best technology that you can afford and can possibly use in the near future. And shop around.
