So I can only say if you get a tablet below $100 your expecting a $100 quality tablet within the comparison of a high quality apple product. First of all Google Play was already preinstalled and ready to use out of the box which is great as some tablets do not have it out of the box. HD videos makes it smooth, SIM card slot available but not a necessity nowadays as WiFi is everywhere and using a personal phone to create a wireless hotspot makes it simple for internet anywhere. Taking pictures with the 2mp camera is not so good as it lacks quality but it should not be a problem as many people use there phones for taking pictures. Also, my daughter plays all kinds of games and I have not seen a single time to hear that something jerky or not working. So the processor performance can not be so bad. Something warm (not hot) it is when it is in continuous play mode. The Tablet makes a very sophisticated look and is easy to use. The battery lasts long enough and the screen is bright enough and has an absolutely adequate resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Having that to compare with a 7 "from Samsung. The only thing I noticed is the slightly better viewing angle that Samsung's tablets offer. Otherwise, there is not so much of a difference between the two. My wife, incidentally, the 8 "Tablet Intenso used this tablet for 1.5 years and it works flawlessly. I would highly recommend buying this tablet if you really want to have some fun fo its incredibly affordable price and performance.
