Apparently these struggle to download apps and run the Google Play store but if you just want to use the pre installed apps including Microsoft Office, stream YouTube videos, browse the net or watch and listen to your own files from your micro sd card then it will be fine

That's probably your alert to stay away. It's cheap but be prepared to buy twice.

That's like me buying a cooker that only cooks at 300 degrees. It'll burn my food but hey, it works and it was cheap. Then I'll get sick of the constant burning of food and go buy a proper one.

Pointless.

Refurbs.
I was interested in the email till I read it struggles to download apps, sure you could try and sideload but i wouldn't put much faith in it, for only a little more you can get a Kindle or similar that works across the board and in similar spec.

Was gonna say same thing. Them and svp.
Yeah I must admit I was surprised to get the email. I never knew they were still around

Tablet might be dodgy but to some it might be OK. One man's junk is another man's treasure
Avoid this, and pick up a Fire Tablet next time it is on offer.
Got very good reviews for a £59 price. With a 10 hour battery the main negative is the 1GB Ram.

Being Google certified and Android 6 I doubt it has too many problems. Maybe the CPU is a quad core A7 but that suits the low Ram better anyway. Its not a Fire but the Fire is £150 now.

Wonder why it won't run the play store. The play store is not exactly resource hungry
Maybe it has a bug with the latest Google
services and and store meaning you have to install older versions from the apk sites.

All the good reviews were closer to release date.
Hipstreet company is bankrupt and does not exist anymore.
I'd sent a 7" tablet which was under warranty for them to repair and never got it back as it was claimed that it had gone bankrupt.
It is Google certified so should not have issues with the Play Store.

I wonder what is meant by struggles to download apps.

The 1Gb RAM isn't going to be much of an issue for general use and as for a portable video player, Kodi would easily run well on it.

Despite saying that it's a quad core SOC I'd like to know which one as there may well be a modded ROM out there that might work well.

Got a refurb one from Tesco's last year. Battery is the problem with mine. Gets to 30% every time then shuts down, then have to recharge.
Its alright for very basic use, but not something I would recommend.
Bought a Hannspree tablet a couple of years back. Good build quality and acceptable specs on paper. But a pile of steaming dog poo to use. Cost £55 from Asda on here. Thought I'd got a bargain, anything but! OK for watching videos I suppose.
Wouldn't even consider a tablet with 8GB.. Ridiculously hobbled.

OK with a faulty battery means its OK without a faulty battery. This far better than any tiny 7" which is what you get at this price level. HDMI adds to uses.
