What do you want? An iPad? Pay 500 quid for one. Me? All I wanted was a 7" tab for browsing the net, reading my books/graphic novels etc and playing my music and films. This does it all.
It's sturdy, it has a decent enough screen, it has full access to Playstore for apps, is small enought to keep in your jacket pocket for listening to your music etc etc etc.
There's just one thing... the battery life.
4-5 hrs? You're having a laugh. From a full charge, reading a book, the tab is dead in 2hrs max. That's why I can't give it 5 stars.
No good for the commute to work, no good to while away the afternoon on the sofa. It's just not portable if you have to charge it every two hours.
That said, if you never intend it leaving the bedside so you can net surf, read, play Temple Run etc then this is for you. It'll be great for the young ones who always want to play Angry Birds. Just leave it plugged in to a power supply!
It charges either through a DC input socket or through USB. Comes with a handy USB to mini USB adapter if you wanna add one of those case/keyboard jobs, takes a 32gb micro SD card and has a 3.5mm socket for your cans. It just doesn't last for more than 2 hrs.
It'll make a very good wi-fi enabled digital photo frame for me (while I get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2) and as a good photo frame is more than 50 quid anyway I'll not view it as a loss.
If you're always gonne leave it plugged in then buy it, otherwise...
