4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad., October 30, 2013
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)
Coming from an Ipad (first Gen) i was expecting something similar, well, not built as well for sure. Now saying that, being more of an Android fan than IOS, i love the Jelly Bean. My phone is Ice Cream Sandwich, so there were some minor differences. The tablet is faster than the old Ipad, has more of a wide screen format, has 2 cameras, USB, HDMI, and the Micro SD slot. These continue to be my biggest complaint with Apple not providing these minor additions(other than the camera on newer models). I agree with others, the camera is marginal, the 720P video recording function is a little choppy. Works well enough for Skype etc. I was able to plug in a Micro USB charger, and it seems to be able to charge through that, time will tell. The standard charger is a pin type power connector, this one thing drops my overall score a bit. The back is aluminum, and the build quality is pretty good for a sub-$200 tablet. The display is pretty sharp, colors look ok. Not higher end tablet quality, but usable for sure. The touch is responsive, and pages scroll very well. Comes with flash installed, but needs a third party browser to enable it. I use dolphin or Firefox, both work well with the flash once you enable the plug in. For those that care, it WILL connect to the ELM327 Bluetooth and run Torque for OBD2 diagnostics. I would have given 4 1/2 stars if i could, but its not 5. I will update my review in a week or so if anything changes.
Update: working well, however 2 issues. Time doesn't seem correct unless you manually set it, and ive tried allowing mock locations and not. SD card memory doesn't seem to display correctly in settings. Also, this is MICRO usb, not Mini. No big deal there.

Pros:
Jelly Bean 4.2.2
Speed
Flash player
Play store compatible (not all tablets are out of the box)
Screen resolution (for a sub-200 tablet)
HDMI, USB, and M-SD slot
Rooted out of the box

Neutrals:
Front camera
Build quality. (slot cover could have been better)
WiFi range

Negatives:
Battery charger port (should have been Micro USB, like everything else)
Rear camera
Memory card does not show Free and Used memory correctly.

I can't get anything to save to the memory card - keeps saying no external storage device.
