Thanks just got one of these with a case for a relative, they ummed/argh'd over Xmas and this is the cheapest I have seen it for a while with the extra £10 off.

Can anyone point me in the direction of how I make this more usable? i.e is there a favourite Android ROM that I can flash onto it?

Or good enough to remove the Amazon Launcher and get the play store up?

Search youtube for 'rootjunky'. I'm currently running the AOSP Nexus ROM and it works great.

Why you think this is so cold ...it'll always be un-usueable no matter what Rom is on it.....get a refund ....buy something better.

Buy it. Try it. Flash it. Then tell me to get something better. :(

These are only worth about £30 anyway. Got one for my son a while ago and they aren't great.

What!? I've bought one, bought one for my mum, sister and niece and nephew. They're easily worth double the price!
What's not great about them. Can you play 3D games on them...? Yes. Can you watch films on them...? Yes. Can you expand the storage...? Yes. Is the battery life good...? Yes. Built-in blue filter for reading....and so on and so on and so on....Oh yes did I mention Amazon Underground offers free games.

Stick with your ipad and pay 15 times more!

Unfortunately Samsung haven't released a new firmware for it meaning the you can't install to the expandable SD card without rooting first.
you can using adb, but i found on an s7 that it didnt work well at all as none of the apps appeared to recognise the adoptable storage.

Non at all mate. It's brilliant
Any of you guys experience issues with the tablet, when powering off it stays stuck on power off pop up and just stays like that till battery dies, second the WiFi stops working and it won't connect to any WiFi again, the switch airplane mode works sometimes other times restarting it a few times, and I mean force shutdown will get WiFi back.
It's almost unusable like this, the closest example to this software would be like running a first build of a custom ROM.
Yeah sadly it was only for the weekend chaps. Flash sale is now over.
Also the price is backup to £299.

this is similar to the Windows tablet I found for only £44.30 but that comes with 2GB Ram.http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/point-view-8-windows-10-tablet-44-30-staples-uk-instore-2597042

Really? This device works fine with 1GB of ram. 2GB would be lovely. How much does the cheapest Win10 tab with 2GB ram costs?

If its a penny more than £79.99 then it's at least double the cost of this tablet alone for a smidgen of speed how good a value does that represent?

also, can't find a bespoke case for it with camera eye hole in right place. stupid to have to keep taking it out to take snaps. ideas (besides drilling out a hole for it)?

How would it compare to the (sometimes £35) amazon fire tablet? In both speed and ecosystem? Usage for a five year old is YouTube, Plex and free games.

We only use dishwasher 2-3 times a week, so some dished can be in there for 2-3 days before it is full and turned on.
We find these cheaper tablets don't get the dished clean and need to be washed a second time unless you use a decent brand, we just stock up when Finish or Fairy tablets are on offer!
I also think these cheaper tablets fade dishes if they are coloured or patterned and the black handles on my knifes. I wonder if they contain a bleaching agent?

Also credit to Melted, here's a link to explain how to keep dishes easily cleanable if you don't need to do a full load every day: http://dishwashers.reviewed.com/features/youre-not-using-your-dishwasher-rinse-cycle-enough

Just about any dishwasher tablet/powder that is any good at-all will contain a bleaching agent along with enzymes, surfactants, phosphates etc. Not tried tesco own brand as I assume they'll be crap, but the cheap aldi magnum all-in-one and the old formula Lidl tablets do seem to be better at removing stains than standard Finish powerball tablets, which probably means they do contain more "oxygen-based bleach" (I expect it is cheap).

Never had any faded dishes, but black phenolic saucepan handles eventually get grey and pitted in the dishwasher regardless of the product I've been using.

The two primary active ingredients in dishwasher detergent are bleach and enzymes :- http://dishwashers.reviewed.com/features/powder-gel-or-tabs-which-detergent-is-most-effective

Try Co-Op own brand. Think you'll be pleasantly surprised by how well they clean everything. Find them much better than "premium tablets"

got the 8" display model, mine has windows 8.1 and a micro hdmi and a lead, not sure what thats for. Dont have any manual with it other than a quickstart leaflet.Did it come with a manual? I can't find one in the docs folder.


This model is the Windows 10 one, so which model do you have as the older Windows 8.1 ones were a different tablet and design. When I bought mine the store had both.
got the 8" display model, mine has windows 8.1 and a micro hdmi and a lead, not sure what thats for. Dont have any manual with it other than a quickstart leaflet.Did it come with a manual? I can't find one in the docs folder.
Ok so, I'll give my initial impressions of this tablet to give you a rough idea whether you want to buy one or not but for £44.30 it's a steal. I usually hate small, cheap and tacky tablets but the spec alone is decent for a Windows 10 tablet and is even better than the Connect 9" tablet (1GB RAM).

So I rang my local Bolton store who reported he had one left but had already been opened, I disregarded this and thought everything would be intact (which he confirmed). I collected the tablet but sadly it looked like a display model which hadn't been mentioned to me - the whole casing was scratched to high hell, the screen was a mess and the tablet kept shutting off.

I rang the Warrington store who reported they had 8 to 9 all fully sealed. I asked him to put one aside and explained the situation. He called the Bolton store and authorised the replacement. I went up today to collect it and it was indeed fully sealed and in brand-new condition.

Just got it home and this one is much much better. It has a pre-applied screen protector, micro-usb cable, power adapter and an OTG cable (Micro-USB to Full Sized) and bagged. Setting up was a breeze and no different to a regular Windows 10 Laptop or Desktop from an OEM.

The tablet on first impressions, is fast and fluid. It does include the Point of View wallpapers but they're actually quite decent compared to most OEM wallpapers etc. Nothing pre-installed that bloats it down either so it's all good. I'm new to Windows 10 on a tablet but it's no different to a regular desktop.

Touch screen is adequately responsive to the touch as are the buttons - even has a touch sensitive Windows logo as the "home button". I'm yet to take the pre-applied screen protector off to try it bare but it'll be left on for a little while. The construction is all plastic so if you're looking for aluminium or similar, look elsewhere. You can tell it's a £40 tablet and not something that costs over £100 but the build-quality seems solid and has a nice weight to it.

The speakers are nothing special. Ok for times where you want to watch a human being attacked by a Cat or similar that your mum has sent you over Facebook, deeming it as "Funny" or light music but it's quite lifeless and somewhat quiet in comparison to say TV speakers. Obviously, it's expected on a small tablet anyway.

I'm continuing to use it. It's worth the price stated and in some cases this little Atom may be able to run the likes of HL2 (around 40 to 60fps) etc so gaming is possible.

All in all, I'm yet to use it for a while but it's a keeper at £44. As stated, don't expect the world and you'll be fine.

you can not expect the same level of specs as a surface!

You would have to be on a different Planet to even consider comparing an under £45 Windows Tablet, to that of a £500-£1000 Windows Surface Tablet costing at least 10-20+ times the cost of the OP's Deal?. :-(

Hehehehehehehe.


For one, I did not say the surface pro, I said surface (which would mean RT or version 3 with an Atom processor) I own both a surface RT and a surface pro. So I know what features they have. I was responding to the question about if it had an hdmi port, which it does not. But thanks for pointing out that this do not compare to those as well. At £44.30 it is a fantastic value budget Windows 10 Tablet and if you can find a better and cheaper windows tablet, please post the deal!!

You're putting me off getting one of these.
Well for me it's an interim tablet until something better shows up. I need high performing Android 4:3 high resolution, and this is the only option that doesn't cost £400+.
Is the bloatware and software really that bad that you would need to replace the tablet with something else?

Yes. I've had to disable 33 apps, including system apps. The UI tweaks and Asus "branded" apps are terrible compared to their AOSP/Google originals.

Had to because they were causing stuttering performance and lag by running in the background. With them off the device is running smoothly.

Great piece of hardware but the software is not great. Mind you it's better than a Samsung!
Bloatware really not that bad. Love it!! Thanks OP.

I had to send mine back due to auto rotate not working. Overall pretty good but it was old stock manufactured 2015. in the end went with Fire 8 HD and loaded google play on and overall is better than the Asus for me.
I thought Amazon made it very hard to get google play on/working for Fire tablets?


​You are correct they make it difficult but there are several internet articles and you tube videos to help you through this though a little technical. Worked 2nd time for me and I am not that technical. I think Fire 8hd easy than other models from what I read.

Great tablet, bought it few months back for the same price from Argos. No HD that's right but 2GB even box says. Since the new 6.0 Chrome slowed down.
Don't listen to people talking rubbish like 1GB and not good quality etc
Price goes up to £179.99 when you add it your basket.

I bought lg gpad 8.3 for this price 3 years ago. It has better procesor, 2gb of ram and 1920-1200 screen. Very easy put nougat on this.
I bought one of these in Currys back in the summer when it was £149 but mine has 2 gig of ram and runs great. No HD isn't a problem watching films as the picture still looks spot on. The resolution for browsing etc. is a bit poor but it really is a good tablet for the money. Not sure why they're saying only 1 gig of ram though, I'd double check that

I have this and Im quite pleased. Here is what I have:

1. Skype - with Skype Call credit so I can phone UK numbers from abroad using Wifi - dont need video!
2. magazine scan/comic book/PDF reader
3. Email client
4. Simple free games from the app store
5. Web browser - it did struggle with the daily mail HP though!
6. TV viewer - we set the phone to do a hotspot and you can watch telly using an app on it.

We have this stashed away in the glove box and on a long journey it's a useful distraction. For £40 I dont know what people expect. Your only alternative is a cheap Android tablet or Amazon Fire however the screens tend to be small, low res and non-IPS and given a choice I'd much rather just use my phone. This tablet has a nice big high res screen and makes for a more joyful experience than my phone for leisure plus it doesnt drain my phone battery.

I intend to use it to read eBooks/PDFs, what would you recommend instead around a similar price point?
If you only want to read books get a proper kindle e-reader NOT a Kindle fire.
The Kindle E-Reader's use E-Ink that is far kinder to the eyes for reading and the battery life is weeks not hours....
Have a look in your local cash convertors/cash generator type store...they usually have plenty of kindle's for £15-£25


That's a good idea, thanks.

Mine seems OK, bought to replace a NETGEAR XWNB5201 which had the symptoms you've mentioned after around 9 months (previous unit which I've RMA-ed also had similar issues and had to be reset manually everyday).

So far this TPLink unit is working fine but I find the transmission strength lower than the NETGEAR's. I've since changed settings to only transmit at 11n and changed the channel to reduce interference. Link for utility if you wanna change your settings:

Mine ran for a day or two before I began to notice problems with the wifi, starts where your wireless device reports it's connected to your network but you can't access anything external, in my case local seemed ok which made no sense at all. The wired connection worked fine for both.
Mine wouldn't even last a day before problems started happening. My experience of TP-Link powerlines is they are good for wired connections but rubbish for providing built-in wifi.

Tablets are portable computers featuring screens with a size of seven inches or above, generally no bigger or more cumbersome than an average book. Typical tablet features include a camera, microphone, touchscreen controls and on screen keyboard for typing. The iPad from Apple is the most popular tablet developed to date.

Tablet: Mobile Computing Device

Tablets existed within the realm of sci-fi, film and TV from the mid-20th century when Isaac Asimov first described a calculator pen in his novel Foundation. The Star Trek films and TV series made frequent use of tablet computing devices in numerous references, while the tablet encyclopaedia computer described in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, written in 1979, is very similar to modern tablets.

Pen computing and the development of stylus electronic handwriting systems were the base origins for tablet systems, with the first electrical stylus device patented back in 1888. Patented touchscreen devices and early forms of tablets continued throughout the 20th century, until the launch of the first commercial tablet, the GRIDPad in 1989. The origins of the iPad can be traced back to the Apple Newton of 1991. In 2001 Microsoft held a demo of its first tablet PC, a computer featuring the use of a pen and numerous developments in devices using handwriting recognition occurred after this date. The first Apple iPad was launched in April 2010, with more than 250 million iPads sold up to January 2015 it proved the most popular tablet form. Android tablets have since overtaken iPad in popularity due to increased affordability and enhanced features. Smaller Windows-based tablets, such as the Surface Pro 4 by Microsoft, are a good choice for productivity and offer comparable features as laptops. iPads and Android tablets are ideal for streaming entertainment, playing games and communicating, but people with creative or work needs may find that Windows tablets provide necessary access to a wide range of software.

What to Look For in a Good Tablet

First off, personal preference is important when it comes to choosing the best tablet for any individual. Everybody has a different sized hand and palm, you need to opt for the tablet that sits best in your palm and offers easily accessible controls. The tablet best suited to a man standing over 6 foot tall is unlikely to suit the most petite woman or teen. So spend time experimenting with tablets before purchasing.

ipads tablet

Operating Systems

The greatest difference between tablets is the type of operating system utilised, Apple devices run iOS, Android use Google operating systems and Windows tablets use the Microsoft system. The iOS and Android operating systems are mucthe same, similar to the manner smartphones operate. Where iOS and Android excel is within the areas of media consumption such as gaming, reading Ebooks, sharing photos and communicating via e-mail, Facebook, Instagram, etc.

Windows tablets can be used as laptop replacements and should be the choice of anybody looking for a tablet to conduct the same functions as a laptop. The downside of Windows tablets is their expense when compared to Android or iOS devices.

Amazon Kindle tablets are dedicated to readers accessing products via Amazon and use a custom version of the Android operating system. Tablets aimed at children are also available, providing custom access to services for security and safety purposes. When it comes to app downloads, consumers need to be aware that the size of the marketplace for Android apps can potentially cause problems with viruses or malware. Buyers still need to be very careful which apps are downloaded to Android.

Pros and Cons of Different Operating Systems

The Apple iOS was the prime mover in the introduction of tablets so it's hardly surprising they are still in the lead when it comes to apps that are optimised for use with tablets. It's easy to use any Apple tablet, children can be remarkably quick with these devices and the intuitive interface is great, but it's not easy to customise these devices to user preferences. Prices for Apple tablets are higher than Android on the whole, and Android does offer more features.

Price is a big advantage with Android tablets, with some of the cheaper models offering features that can beat or match iOS. One drawback of this system is that the Google Play Store doesn't always feature great quality control, malware on available apps has been discovered.

Windows tablets are more powerful, and the possibility to use the devices in laptop mode can be beneficial for some users. Apps for tablets are not widely available at present.

Display Size

Display screen size can be an important factor when choosing the best tablet to suit your requirements. If you plan to watch TV and movies with your tablet, you're probably advised to opt for a 10-inch screen. The major drawback of tablets with large screens is they can cause some wrist pain when held for long periods of time and you may find them a little large to take everywhere on a daily basis. 7-inch screen tablets are easier to hold and about the size as a paperback novel. It's easier to carry 7-inch tablets around. Tablets between 8 and 9 inches in size are proving the happy medium for many consumers, giving optimum portability and user experience.

Resolution and Aspect Ratio

Screen resolution should be the highest available at the price you're prepared to pay, 163ppi is the minimum resolution to look for. Aspect ratio is another important consideration. If you plan to use your tablet for watching movies then you are best advised to opt for a widescreen tablet which will display movies widescreen when held horizontally. Using your tablet primarily for browsing the web and chatting gives you the ability to choose a product with a squarer screen. Most Androids feature widescreen display at a ratio of 16:9, while iPads have 4:3 screen display.

microsoft surface tablet

Connectivity

All tablets feature WiFi connectivity and generally also provide Bluetooth. Cellular connectivity is not a standard option. If you need to access the Internet at all times when you're out and about, signing up for cellular, 3G or 4G coverage will be essential. As long as your provider has available coverage you will be able to access the Internet wherever you're located. Cellular and 4G contracts give the fastest speeds and best accessibility, while 3G contracts will only allow connection via 3G signals. If you're aware you plan to use your tablet in areas WiFi is not available you may want to opt for a tablet that takes a SIM. PAYG or contract terms will cost more, however, it's possible to reduce charges by using the same SIM in a smartphone when choosing 4G connectivity, meaning the tablet can also be used for phone calls. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to swap files with other Bluetooth devices in the vicinity and to stream entertainment direct to your tablet.

Ports

Tablets usually feature at least one USB port (exept for iPads, they only offer a Lightning port to connect other devices, which means that you´ll need an adapter), as well as a 3.5mm port for your headphones. Some devices feature ports that can be connected to HDTV using HDMI cables. Memory card slots are also available on some tablets.

Storage

Storage of 16GB should be an absolute minimum requirement for any tablet, it's also a good idea to check out how much of this space is occupied by the operating system on the device. Ideally you should purchase a tablet with larger capacity in addition to any cloud storage deals that may be available. Some tablets provide options to increase storage using SD cards, however, this could have a detrimental effect on tablet performance.

microsoft iconia tabletPerformance

Tablet performance is based on processor and memory, dual-core or quad-core processors improve performance, with octa-core processing providing the best performance. Sourcing a tablet with high levels of RAM also results in better speeds and performance levels. Different types of tablets provide processors from a variety of manufacturers, most Androids and all iPads feature ARM processors while Intel has made inroads into this market over recent years and provides processors for Samsung tablets. Intel processors are the most highly regarded processors currently on the market and are commonly used in all Windows tablets

Cameras

The camera feature on tablets is not among the best, one camera on the front is the norm for video calling considerations. Rear cameras allow video shooting and have better photography features. When a good camera on tablets is a necessity, don't opt for less than 5MP.

Battery Life and Other Features

Battery recharge times can be important factors to consider when checking out different tablets and you should expect battery life of six hours minimum.

Other features to take into account before buying tablets include Bluetooth and NFC, Infrared transmitters (IR blasters) which can be used to control devices around the home and whether wireless charging is available. It's possible to connect Android or iPad tablets to TVs via the HDMI ports.

Proprietary charging stations are a common feature of all iPads, meaning all peripherals need to be purchased from Apple. Android and Windows tablets can be used with any Micro or full sized USB charger.

Accessories

It's possible to purchase a variety of cables or adapters to enable tablet connections to speakers, TVs and computers. Check out the full specification of any tablet prior to purchase if you intend to connect your tablet to other types of device. Micro SD cards can give added external storage for tablets, if a memory card slot is featured on the tablets. It's also possible to connect external storage devices that feature WiFi access to your tablet.

It's a good idea to purchase a protective case for your tablet. Many of the cases on sale can be used as tablet stands or feature keyboards as an additional bonus.

Gaming

Tablets with higher specifications are better for gaming, for example the more expensive Android models, Apple iPad and Microsoft tablets. You'll need a high performance tablet with impressive graphics to have the best gaming experiences and Android does score highly in this area. There is greater game availability across Android and Windows devices as well.

Apple tablets have the required specifications for gaming on the whole, however, it may only be possible to access the most popular games in the Apple Store as developers won't always write iOS versions. The benefit of gaming on Apple devices is that it's easy to access multiplayer gaming with friends across all Apple devices, just so long as everybody has the same game loaded.

Tablets running Windows have access to all PC gaming options, in this respect they can be said to provide the best gaming experience of all tablets. Expense and available choice of Windows tablets, however, does place limitations on what you can purchase.

asus memo pad

Susceptibility to Virus

Downloading suspect apps can be one way to add a virus to any tablet, so it's always best to use trusted providers for apps and downloads of any kind. Antivirus programs are a good way to keep all files and software on tablets protected at all times, there are free antivirus installations for tablets online. Antivirus is not a recommendation for Apple users as iOS is a more secure platform with more security features than commonly available with Windows or Android. Although malware attacks have been recorded on Macs, there is more incentive for criminals to target Windows or Android devices as there are more available malware writing programs for the more popular platforms and attacks on these devices are known to achieve pay offs. Hacking and attacks are more prevalent now, so Mac users should not be complacent about device security at all.

Apple does test all apps before releasing them in the App Store, Android is a more open platform. Avoiding viruses and malware with Android tablets is a case of using common sense. Downloading apps from Google Play or the Amazon App Store offers some protection against malware or virus infections and users should be very suspicious of any apps that can be downloaded directly from emails or apps that attempt to force access to tablets. Furthermore, reading the permissions prior to adding any app will give you all the information needed about the app, its functions and what access it requires. It may be tedious to read through all this detail, but really does make sense to be vigilant.

Weight and Size

Finally, the weight and size of your portable tablet are major considerations. The lightest, thinnest tablets are manufactured with better components so don't expect your ideal tablet to be the least expensive and where possible take time to trial a few tablets for weight, size and portability before buying any product.samsung tablet sale

Updates and Upgrades

It's always a good idea to update any tablet with the latest software upgrades, to keep your device running at optimum levels. Searching for software updates through the Settings section of your tablet is one way to discover available updates, however, they won't always be available for the make and model of tablet owned. Tablets running Windows should be easy to automatically update via the Windows regular upgrade system on the device's desktop and Apple device updates will be available from the Mac App Store.

As already discussed, 16GB memory should be the minimum requirement memory requirement and it's not possible to upgrade the internal storage on most iPads, Android or Windows devices. Expansion slots for memory cards and USB ports can offer expanded added memory space and could work out cheaper than buying a tablet with larger memory capacity.

Best Time of the Year to Buy a Tablet

Tablets are cheaper around Black Friday and in the run up to Christmas, but there's really no need to put off your purchase for that reason. Technology retailers offer heavy discounts and good price deals at various times of year, cheaper prices could depend on the manufacturer's fiscal year end or may be as a result of new products being issued. Retailers also tend to apply discounts on Monday, so if you plan to buy a tablet this could be the best day of the week to source discounts on your chosen product.

Sell Your Old Tablet

You can make use of the remaining value in an old tablet by advertising it for sale on a number of sites, including Gumtree, Preloved and eBay. A number of retailers also offer trade-ins on tablets and other mobile devices including Currys, PC World, GAME and Argos, who offer Argos vouchers in exchange for listed tablets since summer 2015.
