Also, this is the best Mini Hdmi cable for the price ($5.99) I could find on AMAZON.
BlueRigger High Speed Mini HDMI to HDMI cable with Ethernet (10 Feet)
I’m also expecting a pair of 6ft. HDMI cables too for ($8.99)
BlueRigger High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet 6.6 Feet (2-Pack) – Supports 3D and Audio Return [Latest Version]
UPDATE: 10/31/12 Got my Mini HDMI Cable this morning and hooked it up, HDMI switch was a little testy at first but it finally started to work and I watched an AMAZING HD quality movie, Did I mention I Love my new Tablet?
I worked with the HDMI switch a few more times to make sure it worked ok and it worked right everytime so it must have just been something I did.
Ice Cream Sandwich is goooood
Skeptical At First, But Great Tablet
The touch response is sensitive which is good and highly responsive. It is lighter or about the same as my 7in Nook Tablet which is a plus. I’ve tested most of the functions such as making a video skype call. The camera works great and the receiver on the other end was able to see and hear me. Tested the headphone jack which works also, you get better sound through that than the speaker which is a bit low. It took me a little bit to figure out that you need to push the sd card really in there to get it to latch, I didn’t realize that and I was wondering why my sd card wasn’t staying in and kept popping out. Haven’t had the chance to test the HDMI output yet but I will eventually.. maybe. Don’t really use that.
Now, I know you’re all wondering about battery life because that is what we really want the most of a tablet right? Lol. I ran the tablet with wifi on and mostly web browsed, played games, download apps, etc. I got approx 5-6 hrs. Didn’t really watch any videos or anything on that so that might shorten the life. I let it idle for as long as possible, and because I was importing all my ebooks onto moonreader (great app btw) from SD card took hours, more than 10 hours uploading 1100+ eBooks, I don’t know if that’s fast or slow since I had an e-reader it was a lot faster for that to upload that amount. Idle time is approx 3 days possible with +/- a few hours, possibly longer. (Currently 50& 1/2 hrs with 20% battery left) with WIFI Off.
All in all, it was a lot better than I thought it was. I think it’s more than worth the amount I paid for. I know I wasn’t going to get like top quality brand-name tablet, but I just wanted one to F*#$ around with and if I needed replacing wouldn’t break me.
UPDATE (11/3/2012): Hulu & Netflix is currently unsupported which sucks for me, which is too bad because I wanted to access Hulu on it. Also, I tested the Ethernet jack and every time I tried, it froze it. I don’t know if others have the same problem, technically you don’t need the ethernet jack, I just wanted a faster connection since the spot where I’m at has weak WIFI connection.
Great Tablet at Low Price
Helpful Hints…Great Little Tablet
1). All android tablets irrelevant to the brand, model, operating system…whatever, is having lagging issues with watching online video…Netflix, Hulu, xfinity, etc. IT IS NOT an isolated issue with this tablet.
2). Adobe flash is no longer available for tablets. You CAN GET Adobe Player two different ways:
a). Click on the four dots (::) located at the top right hand corner of the desk top (main screen), and search and click on “File Browser”
(pre-installed), click on “pkg2.2apk” and follow instructions.
b). An “Archived Adobe Player 10.2″ from the Adobe site (just do a little searching).
Different flash players are also available…”MX Player” on Google Play Store is one of the best (I have them both).
3). To correct most of the lagging issues (there still will be some lagging, but it greatly reduced) do this:
a). Go into “settings”, scroll down and click on “Developer Options”, scroll down and “uncheck” everything EXCEPT “Force GPU rending”.
b). Go into “settings”, scroll down and click on “Location Services”, “uncheck” both Google options (you can reactive these options when needed any
time…such as when using GPS or any other navigation app.).
c). Go into “settings”, scroll down and click on “Accounts & sync”, “uncheck” any unnecessary options while viewing online video.
d). Go into “setting”, scroll down and click on “CPU MODE Setting”, click on “Set CPU Mode”, select “Performance”.
e). Three great Apps. that seem to help are: “Clean Master”, “Internet Booster”, and “Ram Booster”. Available here under “Android Apps.”.
I sincerely hope this helps. If you have any questions or need further help with doing or finding or “?”, just leave a comments.
I have changed my rating again to 5 Stars. This is an excellent tablet and I highly recommend it. Poor user reviews are due to customers not reading the instructions or taking the time to do the research and finding out how to use the tablet.
Update: 12/02/2012: I originally gave this tablet 5 stars, but have reduced the rating to 4 stars. Reason: I bought this tablet to watch TV (cannot be done)…with that said, there are a few things I discovered:
1). Google Play Apps. as well as Amazon apps do seem to work very well on this device.
2). The xfinityTV or xfinity player on Google play will not work on this device unless you have a subscription with Comcast, neither can you watch TV on this device via Hulu or the networks online sites. The reason for this is that this tablet DOES NOT have the Adobe Player installed, neither can it be obtained; it has been discontinued…imagine that!
3). However, Netflix does work (get the apps here on Amazon), but it is best your have a wired connection; wireless is slower. Please note, I have super high speed internet [43.58mps download, 4.24 upload wireless].
4). The Ethernet on this tablet is ONLY for the 3g interface; in other words, if your have a mobile provider (smartphone) with 3g interface the tablet will connect via that service. It is not for a wired connection. For a wired connection, just plug in an Ethernet cable to your router and tablet; configuration with your router may be necessary.
5). The “RJ-45 Port” on your tablet (see included manual page 2) is for your wired Ethernet connection.
6). The “OTG Port” is for your keyboard connection.
7). HDMI will need an adapter from mini-to-HDMI. Buy one here if your want to watch TV via HDMI cable.
8). The volume control needs a “volume app.” here on Amazon; it is wise to get one.
9). VERY IMPORTANT: There is no need to update “Firmware” manually via a different site. Go into settings and update via the link; instructions in the “users manual” are for manual upload only.
10). Also, you will need a “SanDisk 16 GB microSDHC Flash Memory Card SDSDQ-016G (Bulk Packaging) – Class 2″ available here at Amazon to watch Netflix and Hulu.
I hope this information is helpful. I have spent over thirty hours exploring the various apps, trying different options, and setting up this tablet. It works great, but I had to discover these things on my own; router configuration can be a “pain in the foot”.
Great tablet for the price. I highly recommend it.
The Encryption feature does work; best to encrypt your tablet (that is if you wish to) immediately after you set up the settings before you add any additional apps. After three hours (mine was encrypting for over 14 hours and I just powered off…everything worked great) just power off and restart.
Dollar for dollar, this big screen tablet is a sweet deal !
This is not a $450 Android tablet or a $600 Ipad, and the screen resolution and weight are not going to fool anyone into thinking it is. It does have a plenty fast processor and enough RAM for streaming Netflix or playing Angry Birds Star Wars. The capacitive touch screen is plenty responsive, especially once you’ve updated to an Android Jelly Bean ROM, but the viewing angles are pretty poor. WiFi connection is decent, but not great and there is no bluetooth. The screen is a great size for reading comics and textbooks on. Only 1 of the 2 “mini” usb ports is really useful, the 2nd is for debugging. You can hook up a usb hub if you want to connect a keyboard and mouse, or the Lenovo keyboard with pointer works really well.
There are a couple things that worry me about the tablet, putting pressure on the back near the speaker slots causes a bit of distortion of the lcd in that area and like most of the cheap chinese tablets, it uses a pin-type power connector. The truth is that for ~$150 it’s impossible to beat this tablet. I did a lot of research before going with Zenithink’s ZTpad. If you seen another tablet in this price range with a higher resolution screen, you can be sure it’s a resistive touch screen and it’s going to feel like a piece of trash.
If you want a cheap tablet with a big screen to muck about with, the C93 can’t be beat.
If I didn’t care about screen size, there are much nicer tablets (7″) starting at $50 more.
Here is something I learned
I hate the touch screen keyboard so I use a keyboard case. Now what I did was I went into settings then went to apps, went to all; opened up Android keybard and clicked on disable then I went down to voice search and disabled it.
Got out of settings and then did a reboot, now my tablet runs as fast or faster than my Acer netbook computer, and if I do ever decide to turn the Android keyboard and or Voice Search (which is les than zero) I can. By turning off apps that you will never use you will speed up your tablet.
I am so happy with my tablet that this 60 year old is doing backflips.
Here is something else I have learned …………………………………………………I have never been a fan of the pre-installed
browser and as such I have researched different browsers. The first browser was Opera Mobile a far better browser
than the pre-installed one with can be unstable at times. The drawback to Opera is the it opens up sites such as Amazon in mobile/tablet mode instead of desktop which forced me to use the pre-installed browser for those sites.
I then tried Skyfire 4.0 which after 2 days of use I really really love. It is very fast and very stable and this I really love is that you can change the settings so you if you like the android/mobile/tablet mode you can do that or if you are old school like me you can set it for desktop. Since then I have uninstalled the Opera browser, remove the pre-installed browser shortcut and use only Skyfire. Note: if you disable the pre-installed browser Skyfire will not work.
