Summary: A great value tablet when I got it. It was setup and rooted. I have put firmware 3.2 on it which made a big difference, smoothing out operations still further, this took it to Android 4.2.2 and updated the video player. I have recently upgraded to firmware 3.2.1 which is still Android 4.2.2 but seems to address the battery drain issues some have reported. The manufactures seem to release firmware upgrades quite regularly.
Summary: have had this for nearly a month and i have found it the bees knees for working i have not had to do anything to it it plays games and surfs the internet,but beware if you buy a leather case for it as i did you'll find it hard to get the internet , i thought it was faulty but it was the case that was stopping it.The tablet is a great piece of kit i found it easy to use,it charges by usb and you can use it while charging,the volume is good and the battery lasts up to 6...
Summary: First of all I must say the communication with EO-Style was excellent. I had issues with the first Onda v972 and they bent over backwards with excellent customer service. I've now tested the replacement for a few weeks now, & it is running very well in deed, especially with the new firmware 4.2.2 v3.2 Jelly bean. All applications work fine, no sluggish movements a joy to have and play with.
Looks and feels like an apple ipad but mine had to be returned
23 June 2013
Summary: It looks and feels like an apple ipad. If it had worked properly it would have been good. Mine was faulty and received a full refund. Problems charging it seemed to reset itself back to factory setting when I charged it. It often froze but you only had to switch it off and that resolved the problem. Every product will have a faulty one sometime it just happened to be my turn to receive one. Screen was very clear, apps easy to use.
Summary: I don't really know how well this works, I only turned it on accidentally once and it was obvious that someone had already used it. The slightly battered box was unsealed when it arrived. The screen had no protective cover and was badly etched and scratched. There are markings under the glass and it looks like a poorly implemented screen replacement. Going through process of return, still waiting for a response from the seller.
Summary: What a great tablet PC just what I was after. I'm so happy with my purchase, it's got al the parts I was after: SD card slot, HDMI out, Super Hi-res screen, quad core processor with 2 Gig Ram, 8 core graphic processor, android operating system. I've been comparing it to my daughters IPAD 4 and it blows it out the water in all but 2 ways - IPAD has better speakers and built in home button.
Summary: Had this for less than a month, crashed several times requiring re installation of all the apps. Gave up the ghost today, fortunately still within the return period - sent back to the seller. Not sure if this was just one off.
Summary: This tablet took exactly one week to come from China to London UK (despite getting emails saying it would take another 3-4 weeks to arrive), I was extremely pleased to see it sitting on my office desk this morning. It's quad core, retina and scored 12,000 on Antutu benchmark which is five times faster than my previous Arnova G10 tablet. It arrived in enough bubblewrap to cover an elephant.
