+1 had two chinese tablets and both were terribly in terms of performance and build quality thus being so cheap
Yes they come with the latest OS but can you upgrade later? Can you root? Can you load a custom rom? Most can't and they lack documentation if you end up with a fault.+0. Had one ultra cheap one that was R500/$70/2011 that was terrible and poor quality. Learned my lesson and went to a Samsung one for a year and a half. But I needed better resolution so I gambled again and bought another Chinese one. R2400/$228/2013 great performance, good build quality.
I reasoned that in 6 months time I could go for a name brand that would have dropped in price by then (now) or I might get to choose from the latest tech - I won't though as that would be mostly a lateral move unless it has the Note style stylus.
Latest Chinese tablets can be brilliant. Some models have had more updates than branded Android devices.
Agree. When tablets came out, I often saw it being used in meetings. But I see less and less of that lately. Seems like the big hype is over. Back to pen and paper...
So true! But not back to pen and paper...but smartphones with larger screens. My GS 3 mini can do most stuff easily and tethered as well without breaking a sweat!
Personally I'm a big fan of pen and paper. BUT if you want something in the middle get the Boogie (spelling?) Board Jot
What did I say about Lenovo? Well known, cheap, Chinese brand. Great quality laptops and now great quality tablets and cellphones at a great price. Almost got everything in my house switched over to them (Lenovo Laptop, wifes Lenovo A3000 tablet, netbook S10). Only my S4 I bought last year. Will replace the S4 next year with a Lenovo.
Samsung and Apple is only selling good because they know how to create market hype. Making you believe you need something, you can live without. Famous quote: "You need a gun, like you need a hole in the head."
