This dirt-cheap tablet isn't worth your time

Tablets
If you want to spend as little as possible on a tablet, you could buy the RCA Voyager III sold exclusively at Walmart it only cost $50. Because of it's price, it's comparable to the Amazon Fire another $50 tablet, However, even though the two tablets cost the same amount, there are some stack differences. First of all, the RCA tablet is really ugly. Cheap tablets are usually unsightly, but the RCA tablet is on another level. It has large, visible screws on it its ends, that make it look more like a prototype than a finished product. And the grill on the speaker has holes wide enough for crumbs to fall in. Performance, as to be expected with cheap electronics, is slow and buggy. Games take a long time to load, and choppy graphics during game play are common. For the first few days, I couldn't even get the VUDU app to launch without it crashing, and it was one of the pre-installed apps on the tablet! Its smudge prone screen is similarly underwhelming with poor viewing angles and low maximum brightness, it is also very slow to respond to taps and swipes additionally its battery life sucks it only lasted around 3 to 4 hours with heavy use so you can't even use it for entire day without charging it Overall, the Amazon Fire looks better, performs faster and has a better battery life than the RCA tablet. But one thing the RCA tablet has that the Fire doesn't is the Google Play store. That means that the RCA tablet has access to a greater number of apps than the Fire. But instead uses the meticulously curated Amazon App Store. So for example, I was able to download new popular games like Super Mario Run and Power Rangers Legacy Wars, which aren't available to download on the Fire. But really that's the only good thing the RCA tablet has over the Amazon Fire. If you want a cheap as dirt bare bones tablet whether it be for yourself or a kid I recommend looking at the Amazon Fire Tablets first. But if you really need Google Play store access and you don't plan on using it much, the RCA Voyager Tablet is tolerable. Just don't expect much from it.
