Opinion on your Android Tablets experience

by dave5581 / June 18, 2013 11:42 PM PDT

I've been getting some lousy Android tablets from China. Additionally, their support and warranty policy is ridiculous.

Looking to try other tablet provider and see if it's worthwhile getting some more. However, I really want to know from other people's experience.

I heard some good reviews about the Zenithink tablets. If you've experienced these, I really appreciate your feedback on them.
Does it do most of things you've like?
Is there an problems encountered?
When did the problem start occurring?
Have you dealt with their support department and how would you rate your experience?

Also if there's any other generic tablet worthwhile considering, please let me know. Thank you all for comments in advance.

Sorry no.

There are too many 99 buck or there about tablets and "you get what you pay for." This won't stop spammers and shills from trying to sell us their junk.

Why not a Nexus 7 or similar quality? And given how limited these things are, are you like some I've encountered that were trying to have it replace a Windows/Apple laptop?

Don't buy them.

The only ones that are any good are the most costly ones. The sd card slot is useless for apps. That is if its running Android 4+. Any Android tablet less than 4 or 5 hundred bucks is only good for surfing the net. If you want to use apps you need to spend a lot of money for an Android tablet. Low cost ones are a trap if your not careful.

My Mrs bought me a cNm 9.7 inch tablet for christmas about £150 I believe. It came with flash already installed and works like a charm for the purposes I use it for. No, it won't replace my Win 7 desktop but it has its advantages.
I did email support for some advice and got a reply within 24 hours. All in all I'm happy with it.
