    I am a 1,000,000% Android person I will NEVER EVER own anything put out by apple.
    As far as I am concerned apple products are over priced, over rated crap.
    The day I own anything from apple is the day the universe ends and time runs backwards.

    Iv just bought one and it’s brilliant for the money, no lag when moving your finger across the screen. 2 cameras that are adequate for what you want from a tablet. The WiFi works a treat as long as you in range of the router although I will say it doesn’t pick up the signal as good as my HTC phone or my wireless PC, but that could be down to my old router. Youtube and streaming video is good, picture quality is excellent for the money but battery life like all these tablets isn’t that great if your browsing the internet or watching videos. The headphones that come with it are a joke, cheap and way to short to be of any use. I downloaded a free fake iPad launcher from google play and it made it look identical to the real thing. Quite simply for this kind of money you cant go wrong, why pay the ££££ for a real iPad when this one does the same job only much cheaper

    Looks like some one just discovered chinese shopping websites. These 7inch androids have been around for a very long time, why even St Steve said 7inch tablets were no good , so it must be true.
    More like Apple copied Android on this one.
    I have to use an iPad all day for work and get very frustrated at times due to the limitations that places on me, I prefer Android.

    I purchased one and received it last week. After 30 minutes of use, the top right hand corner became really hot. I turned it off and let it cool down. Now, I cannot get it to turn on. Thank God I used Paypal and can get my money back. I just bought a REAL ipad mini.
