Upon opening this guy up, there were a couple things that I noticed that I did not like about the tablet. The tablet’s back casing is of a glossy finish, which accounts for leaving fingerprints on the surface. While this may not be a deal breaker for some users, you might want to consider finding a skin or case of some sort to keep the tablet clean. Otherwise be prepared to wipe the back off frequently or live with the oils. The other odd fact is there is no volume buttons to control the sound. In order to adjust the sounds you must go all the way through the settings to do so or download a third party launcher that supports widgets to place a volume widget on the screen. Once you have the widget set it is not too much of an issue, although I am quite used to using volume buttons to control the device’s sounds.
After getting over the glossy back and lack of volume buttons, the tablet started to win me over a bit. The 7+ began giving me ideas (no pun) about what I could use this for. I’ve not actually been a big tablet user. I’ve got an iPad that the kids use more than I do. Had a Nexus 7 for a little while, but had to sell it for personal reasons. And that’s been the extent for tablets that I have owned. Therefore, a few ideas came to mind due to the unavailability of tablet ownership.
Just to name a few ideas that came to mind include using the tablet as a viewfinder for my DSLR, e-reader, and notepad for planning videos and during Bane Tech Live shows. Why am I telling you this? Because this was my first impression of the tablet. The impression of foreseeing what I can use the tablet for and how I plan to test it out to see if this is something yout relate to of how you might use the tablet.
While shooting the unboxing video I did notice the screen was responsive, no hickups, loads the Play Store just fine, and rose an interest to root it. I love stock Android, but I would love to get Lollipop stock Android loaded rather than Android 4.4.4. KitKat works well, but once you experience Lollipop you don’t want to go back to an older version of Android. It is just that good!
Overall, I am REALLY excited to have this tablet! Even though it is no Nexus 9, iPad, or Samsung tablet – I am just as excited to have it! I love tech and gadgets! I think this tablet is actually going to be worth having around and will treat me well. Some of the elements to be tested will be battery life, how well can it play movies and games, and can it serve as a viewfinder for my camera. All this will be included in the full review. Stay tuned for the review coming out soon.
