Summary: Yes, it's cheap, but you get what you pay. This tablet is very slow and sometimes it does not respond to commands. Back button is very annoying - I keep accidentally touching it all the time. Also, it restarts itself at random times even when you're in middle of being used. It gives no warning or any signs that it is going to happen, it just suddenly turns off and on again without possibility of saving what you have worked on till then.
Summary: Update I called Coby today about my Coby MID7042-4 tablet thay've had for 67 days to repair. Coby response I should recevie it Thursday. Almost the same response I've gotton everytime I've called. Below is my orignal review: I usually don't review products I've bought. However I thought I'd share my experience with Coby tablet repairs. The speakers quit working on my Coby tablet after 32 days Amazon couldn't help because more than 30 days had passed.
Summary: Ok Product. It does not work with Google Play store; it has Getjar which is very limiting for apps; however, with assistance from seller able to obtain alot of apps that were needed from Amazon Apps Store. No good cases available for this product; only a sleeve at this time which is only very dissapointing.
Summary: I bought this for my daughters birthday. It's not and IPAD but it does what it needs to do.. She loves it, so mission was accomplished.. As I do prefer my IPAD over this.. I like the fact it has live wall paper like apple products, it doesn't have the apes you would have on apple but like I said my daughter likes it so it did its job..
Summary: My husband got this for me as a gift i love it! I am a big book worm and am always on my facebook so this was perfect for me i have a droid razr and this tablet is exactly like my phone just a gigantic verson lol love it!!!!!
Summary: I was not sure if I would like a tablet, so I decided to get a cheap one and see if it works for me. I really like my Android phone, but this device is very uninspiring. The performance is barely adequate and it is not compatible with a lot of apps downloaded from the Amazon apps store. The memory is very limited, and adding an SD card did not seem to create usable memory for applications.
Summary: For those of you that gave this unit high praise, write back after 3 to 6 months and see if it still does what you wanted it to. - It's to sluggish to view a Netflix movie. - It has a forward facing camera, but wont run Skype. At first I loved it. It sounded great for the price, and it worked well, for a little while. Then it started doing strange things while it was charging. The screen would come on and turn off every 10 seconds.
Summary: I was going to purchase a Kindle Fire. But while researching it I found the Coby Kyros Tablet for around the same price. It had a much bigger screen so I decided it would probably do more. I have had it for about a month now and love it. I was able to download the kindle app and many more apps. I also have the nook app so I have the best of both worlds available.
