    Very Nice Basic Tab, Beautiful Sharp Screen

    Posted
    mangoguy

    Very nice basic tablet for an excellent price. SCREEN: sharp, bright 1280x800 IPS screen, looks good at any angle (much better than a 1024x600 screen you'd see on a 7" tablet). Excellent picture, especially when watching 1080p video. CPU: MediaTek (best in the business) 1.3Ghz Quad Core Processor. SPEED: Decent enough for everyday tasks. I'm not a gamer, so haven't tested it with any graphics-intensive games, but for getting around the android system, speed seems fine. BATTERY: Excellent. Lasts a long time, especially when compared to other inexpensive tablets. Has a 4500ma battery. WEIGHT: Heavier than a smaller 7" tablet, for sure, though not terribly bad (probably it's the bigger, better battery that adds the weight. Worth it, in my book). SUPPORT: pretty much zero. The manufacturer's webpage is completely blank under "support", and today (Monday) no one answered their toll-free number. Don't expect any support, in other words. SPEAKER: In the back, not HiFi, but louder than I would've thought, and certainly good enough for me. MIC: Built-in. Didn't do any video chats yet, but did do a quick Voice Recorder test. Sound was soft on playback, but you could make it out, and maybe it was just my volume settings. Some low-end tablets actually don't even have a built-in mic. ANDROID: 7.0 Nougat (a nice, new version of Android) WIFI: Works good! MEMORY: 8GB unfortunately, leaving about 5GB for the user. That's very little, I know, though you can put an SD card in to increase it. Note that on Android Nougat you can decide whether you want that SD card to be treated as "portable" memory (more for stuff like video files) or additional "Internal" memory, but if you choose Internal, you can't drag-and-drop files from, say, a windows machine to the additional SD card memory directly on this unit, you'll have to first put it to the unit's built-in 5GB available memory, then transfer it over. A bit of a hassle, but if you want to use a lot of APPS, that's probably the way to go. If you just want it for things like photos and video files, definitely do it as PORTABLE memory, as doing it that way, you can drag-and-drop files from other machines directly to the SD card. The back of the box says 32GB max SD card, but I may try putting in a 64GB card to see if it will take it anyway (for either "portable" or "internal" memory. Sometimes it works). The main downsides are the smaller 8GB size and the almost zero lack of support from the company (the included PDF Owners Manual is short and has terrible English). But if you're okay with that, this is actually a really nice basic machine! Please note that it's not going to beat a top-of-the-line model, but the screen looks great (esp when watching 1080p video), it has a very decent 4500ma battery, and the speed is at least or better what you'd expect from a unit a lower-end unit). I'm happy with it.

    Best Budget Android Tablet for 2017

    Posted

    For those looking for a cheap, decent tablet running real Android with the Google Play Store, I recommend the Digiland DL8006. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat in near-stock form. I installed Launcher3, a clone of the original Pixel launcher with left-swipe to Google Feed, and it runs fine on it. The only annoying non-stock aspect to the UI was an extra nav button at the left end of the strip, for screen shots. But I fixed that with a no-root-required app from the GP Store (but it did require connecting to a computer and granting permissions via command line). Is this tablet as good as one that costs over $100? No, but it runs pretty well. No crashes in the first few days and it's generally responsive. There have been some slight UI lags here and there and some stutters on animations in certain games, likely due to the fact that it only has 1 GB of RAM. But if you just need something for basic tasks, it passes the test. The build quality is about on par with the low-end 7" Fire tablet -- not great, but OK. The back is cheap black plastic, but not ugly. The screen is much nicer, however, than the Fire 7 -- it's bright and sharp, with good color. Its specs are about as good as the Fire HD 8, which costs a bit more and, of course, runs Fire OS with the Amazon App Store and is riddled with Amazon ads. No ads here, just a clean Android UI with access to all your favorite Google apps, plus tons more. This tablet only has 8 GB of storage but you can easily upgrade that with a Micro SD card for just a few bucks. And Android 7.0 allows for adoptable storage of SD cards, so you can even run apps off the card if you plan to keep it in the tablet permanently. (Best to get a high-speed Class 10 A1 Micro SD card, though.) If you want a basic Google Android (not Amazon) tablet with an HD screen for stuff like web browsing, email, music, messaging, social media, reading, YouTube, and simple games, this is the lowest-cost decent option I've seen.

    Does indeed take large SD Cards (128GB)

    Posted
    freddie6

    Indeed, a very nice basic tablet, as others have reviewed. I'll just add that even though the box says "up to 32GB max" for a MicroSD card on it, I can confirm another reviewer's comment that it actually DOES WORK with larger MicroSD cards. Like him/her, I am using it for portable storage rather than adoptable storage so I don't know if it will work for adoptable storage or not, but at least for portable storage, my 128GB MicroSD card works great. When first inserting it, after getting a warning that the card is corrupted, you just have to format it, and then it works just fine. I've been using it for a while now like this. Since no one else has mentioned the cameras, I'll mention that they're basic, but work fine. The front-facing one is low-res, mostly for video chats or low-res selfies, and the one in back is basic (2MP, no flash and not too many options) but does the job. These aren't hi-res cameras (if you want a quality camera, use a real camera or a high-end tab) but for everyday stuff they work quite well. I also like how there's not a lot of bloatware or extra junk on this unit, it's nice and clean (unlike the Fire -- I don't want to carry around constant ads and a gateway for a retailer, I just want a tablet!) This is so much better than the Fire. Really nice screen, long-lasting battery, decent enough speed for everyday Android stuff. I bought another low-end tab as well on black friday, returned that one and kept this DigiLand one. As far as customer support, indeed the company's webpage literally says the word "NOTHING" under the "Support" tab for this model. They do have a toll-free number... when I tried it, no one answered, but I did get a message that if you leave your contact information, someone will call you back (I didn't bother leaving a message), so perhaps there is at least some kind of support. The company is located in Southern California. For a basic tab, this is nice little hidden gem!

    Acceptable at Price, Not Amazing, I'd buy it Again

    Persistence

    I bought this for operating Behringer X32 sound system. I specifically wanted an 8" sized tablet for this application. The IPS screen is better than many entry level tablets that loose nearly all color when viewed from one of the 4 sides. Screen does not get "very" bright, not ideal for in daylight use. Audio is poor in quality, but might be exactly what some users want to limit kid viewing / listening at louder volumes that would reach others across a room if it had a louder speaker. Headphone 3.5mm volume seems a bit low too when compared to some other mobile devices. Wifi connects quickly to my X32 connected router. The battery seems to hold up better to Mix Station Pro, which is power hungry, when compared to my Blackberry Priv (Android) device with DigiLand's larger capacity battery. I am a fan of devices that are not bloated with apps I don't want from the factory. This is a fairly clean system from factory. This is exactly what I want to see - especially with only 8GB built in storage total. Won't be your do everything device unless you add micro SD card storage. Best Buy did not have a soft case for this in stock - bought Amazon Item Model Number: TE8.0-EVA-7C (Fit snug and just needed some foam cut out to accommodate the Digiland button, speaker & connector configuration since it varies from the Samsung Galaxy Tab E8" tablet layout the foam case was designed for. I feel really good about using this case / tablet combo for a school or church sound system.)

    Great while it worked for a day

    I purchased this for my son, who used his Christmas money for it. He’s already had one tablet from Amazon that wouldn’t turn on when I arrived so we were hoping for better luck by going local. The reviews looked decent and all he wants is a tablet to play Minecraft and NBA Live. Set up was easy. I’m an Apple person but I’m familiar with Android and Google Play. I love that I was able to set up a family group through the Family Link app and I can approve or deny his purchases, set screen time limits, and lock the screen from my phone or iPad. It took a little time to set up but once it was, it was great. He seemed to really like the tablet. The screen is sharp for an inexpensive tablet. It’s not super fast but it doesn’t drag, either. However, today is day 2 of the tablet. He went to get it from his room where it was just sitting on his dresser and the screen was completely screwed up when he looked at it. It looks like the screen has a large hole in it and it’s cracked, but the screen itself isn’t damaged at all, it’s just the screwy graphic that’s on the screen. It won’t go away after a reboot. Really disappointed that he’s had less than 24 hours of use and it’s already crashed. We’re exchanging it to give it one more chance - maybe he got a dud. But at this point, if the next one does the same, I’m just going to give him my iPad Mini and buy a new iPad. Apple products may not be perfect, but trying to find an Android tablet that works has been a big test.

    Worked for less than 2 months

    I bought this tablet so my three-year-old could play games and watch his little videos on YouTube. He wasn't really rough with it and didn't spill anything on it but one day it just wouldn't turn on anymore. I'm not sure if the charging port went out or if the thing just completely died. I called digiland customer service and I was told that I could mail it in to them along with $10 and they would fix it. I guess that's not too bad of a deal but I really think they should be fixing it for free because it hasn't even been 2 months. I can't really say that the product is not good because I wasn't there every second that my three-year-old had the tablet. It is possible that he did something to it I suppose. I just want others to beware. It is very inexpensive and sometimes you do get what you pay for.

    Basic tablet for simple tasks

    I purchased this tablet when my Asus tablet was sent in for repairs and I wanted to continue checking email and playing a match 3 game. Due to its limitations I had lower expectations. It served me well in the interim. I still use it for basic functions. One problem is that it is extremely easy to inadvertently take a screen shot when trying to page backward. I have not tried the fix that another reviewer suggested. Periodically I delete all of the screen shots but it is a distraction.

    Great Tablet For Children

    My niece accidentally laid on her previous tablet with her knee (same exact model) and somehow broke the inside of the screen. So I purchase another replacement and attached a popsocket on the back so she’s less likely to drop it and so far it’s been a very good tablet for her. Parental controls are easy to set up and the interface is very smooth and simple for a six year old to maneuver around. Would definitely recommend this tablet to other people looking to get something for their children.
