Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tablet Looking for a good android tablet with a stylus for drawing on and this one has been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features Have had this tablet for roughly 4 months. I use it daily. The battery doesn't last as long as would like, but I use for streaming videos and basic tablet usage. Love the full usb slot as well as stylus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good value for For basic use, this tablet is good choice. It has many handy features & great video for watching movies and such. For email, internet, playing average games, etc., this tablet will suit your needs. It is however, underpowered to perform multiple tasks & is sluggish when running Facebook. Overall, this would be a great purchase for most people, I am just used to devices with a stronger processor

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Battery I just got this as a promotion when I bought my phone. So far, I have had minimal activity, mainly emails, web browsing, etc. No video streaming yet. Battery goes dead if not plugged in overnight. Very disaapointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bargain! Got this tablet for Xmas. Great match to my LG G2 phone also running Android Lollipop. Thin, light, yet responsive. And the battery lasts for several days before needing a charge. And inexpensive.
