Light and sturdy

The tablet has a 7-inch screen and weighs 12.5 ounces, making it easy to tote. While cheap, it feels sturdy enough to confidently leave in the charge of a small child.

A middling display

The 7-inch display has a 1,024-by-600-pixel resolution: that's low, even for budget tablets. But the real problem here is how reflective this screen is.

Bloatware-free, mostly

A quad-core Intel processor

A quad-core Intel Atom CPU powers the device, and performance isn't too bad. You'll have no trouble getting around apps and the like, and it should prove good enough for most casual games. That said, you will run into the occasional bouts of lag and stuttering, especially if you're fluttering through multiple apps.

Extra storage space

The microSD card slot can support up to 128GB-capacity cards, which will go a long way to extend the meager 8GB of onboard storage.

Subpar sound

The single speaker on the underside isn't very good.  It can get fairly loud, but is easily muffled by your hands.
