    Pretty Good Tablet for the Price

    I give this tablet a qualified recommendation. It is an inexpensive tablet, and for the cost, it is pretty good. It can't really compete with the more expensive models in terms of screen resolution or processing speed, but it is a serviceable tablet that works reasonably well. On the positive side, the 10 in format gives a large viewing area. The screen is reasonably bright. The fact that this tablet runs Android 7 and that it has not been customized by the manufacturer is good. On the negative side, this tablet is rather heavy to hold. The processor is somewhat slow, and it gets bogged down sometimes. The front and back cameras are pretty bad, but the heavy weight of the tablet makes it unlikely that you are going to carry it around to take photos. The manufacturer's documentation (available on the Insignia website) is not comprehensive and does not even discuss some of the tablet's features. It is also important to note that there are no custom made cases available for this tablet for some reason. The only option is a generic cover that is held on by elastic bands that connect to brackets on the four corners. The only available screen protectors are also generic. In summary, this is an okay tablet for the money. It will not wow you with its performance, but it is an inexpensive option and holds its own over other options at that price point. When I bought mine, Best Buy did not even have one of these on display. I am not sure why they treat this like an ugly stepchild, except that they may be trying to direct customers to pricier tablets.

    Basic tablet, decent price

    Posted

    I've been using this tablet since late November, 2017. No, it's not a high-end device, but I didn't expect it to be at $70. For basic functions, however, it's not bad. Even so, a few cautionary points should be followed by anyone using this tablet. First, Insignia's build of the OS (Android Nougat 7.0) isn't the greatest, and hopefully if/when they get around to an upgrade to Oreo a lot of issues will get addressed. Until then, using a system optimizer on a routine basis (I use System Repair 2018 myself) seems to keep a lot of the weirder behavior mentioned in other reviews under control. Other than this issue, I'm actually rather pleased with this tablet. The 6000 mAh battery provides an excellent runtime, even with a lot of WiFi access when using it. The 32 GB internal storage is basic, but again, this is no top-shelf device and it does take up to a 128 GB microSD for additional filespace, which I hope Insignia will take up to 200+ GB if and when we see an OS upgrade. Screen quality is quite good, although I recommend getting a screen recalibrator from the Google Play store so that you can adjust the touchscreen's sensitivity and calibration to your taste, as Insignia's initial settings weren't very good. But other than some not-quite-right factory settings like that and the need to system-clean more frequently than on other computers I've used, I really have no complaints. No, it's not super-fast or hi-glitz, it just does what you'd expect for a basic Android tablet, and does that decently.

    Not really worth it even at a low sale price

    I have had this tablet for roughly eight months now. I've more than given it time and put it through the works. I knew going in it wouldn't be great or even that good. But at the end of the day and even with buying it at $30 off, I still can't recommend it. I am very tech & computer savvy and again I was aware of what I was getting into. Yet, I have simply found it is too slow and too unresponsive to work with. At best, it's an okay e-reader. Trying anything else on here is a laborious task. It frequently pops up warnings that an app isn't responding/has stalled. It has recently started not only dropping Wi-Fi networks but COMPLETELY turning off the Wi-Fi on its own. I have also noticed it can be very difficult to "fire back up" again from sleep. You have to hold the power button forever just to get it going even when FULLY charged. Never seen anything like it. A Mattel or Hasbro tablet for kids is surely better than this. The simplest things make this tablet choke and stall. Save your money. I beg you. Either get a good tablet or just don't get one at all. I will note the screen isn't bad looking. Nice enough resolution. That's probably the best thing about it and that's not saying much. Man, oh man, it is so frustratingly sloooooow. Oh, and of course, the Android OS won't update in anyway. Ugh.

    Can't be beat for $99

    After almost 5 years my Nexus 7 2013 (that I bought from Best Buy) died. At the time, it was Google's flagship product, state-of-the-art and at $230 beat out the competition by 100's of dollars. I wanted to learn Android basics and after the warranty expired, I rooted it an went to town. As I don't need a tablet for anything important, I could not justify another $200-300 outlay for a replacement. So it was difficult to pass up this very competent tablet for the price. All the "save your money, waste of money" reviews are troll blah. Try and find a 32 GB 10.1" Android 7.0 tablet that comes close without doubling or tripling the price. I have restored nearly 150 of the apps I had on the Nexus and while this Insignia is not as snappy, it's quite stable. I'm also enjoying the addtional 3" of display. Note that the screen may black out for a few seconds when switching between "heavy" apps. Use a version of XBrowser for the webbuhnetz and you'll be OK. The "Fastest Mini Browser" by XMan is superb and well supported with timely updates to the latest XBrowser builds. A big plus is that this Android OS is the core Google product and not loaded with manufacturer (Samsung, Motorola, etc.) bling, bloat and questionable "utilities" and "features." Full system scans with Bitdefender and Zemana found no vulnerabilities. Best Buy sourced this tablet from Lightcomm Technology (Hong King) who markets it globally as the MID1023MA in 8 and 32 MB models with 1 and 2 GB RAM respectively. Too bad Best Buy hampered its NS-P10A8100 with 1 GB RAM to drop the price point by a few bucks.

    Good picture, lousy performance

    Pros: Big screen, very good picture for this price range Cons: Runs slower than a snail crawling through glue I bought this tablet to read textbooks that have embedded pictures and tables, so the most important feature to me was screen size and image clarity. The screen resolution is very good, especially for this price range. However... the performance is terrible. I have basically nothing installed except the system apps (which can't be removed without doing some things that tend to void warranties), and the performance is really slow. I have a $50 cell phone with the same amount of RAM that can run circles around this tablet. The only thing I'm doing with it is reading Amazon books and occasionally opening Google Maps. (I have yet to be able to open Google Maps without it crashing the tablet, so something is obviously wrong there.) Final conclusion is that I will be returning this and getting a smaller tablet with a bigger brain.

    Slow and clunky

    This tablet is a prime example of you get what you pay for. I was in the market for a value tablet, and am not a fan of Samsung only because of their version of Android OS. I had an idea of what I was getting into with this but this tablet still did not meet my low expectations. The processor is extremely under powered to do anything remotely expeditiously. I had to unlock developer settings to limit background processes in order to limit the constant "_____ app has stopped working" notifications for apps I wasn't even using. Transitioning from one app to another is slow and time consuming. The main purpose I bought this tablet for was to read and take notes on pdf files of a course I am taking. It does this fantastically, but only after the file is downloaded. It does play videos well, but again, only after they are downloaded. I like that it is "stock" android 7 (Nugat) and was the most economical choice for the as close to most recent operating system available. I'm still amazed at how lacking tablets are at receiving OS and security updates when they have all the same access our phones have, some even with carrier support. Overall, this underperforming (aside for basic tasks), cheap tablet will fulfill my temporary needs, but I would not recommend it to anyone that expects anything close to their phones in regards to performance. I would not buy it again.

    Barely a tablet - not enough RAM

    Posted
    PhillipJFry

    I rarely write reviews, usually others capture my take on a product one way or another. But this tablet was so bad I have to warn people away from it. It has so little memory (I GB) that even for a "budget" tablet, it cannot function. Android 7, a large screen, good internal storage and long battery life cannot overcome that glaring problem. I ultimately returned it. The Android system apps regularly crashed on boot. The video function of a 3rd party kid's lock app was nerfed for reasons that developer could not figure out; the tablet met the requirements for that specific app. It would hang for several seconds at a time randomly, regardless of the app. Peeking into the developer options to uninstall apps running in the background or changing the memory settings to close out background programs aggressively did not help. Neither did any 3rd party RAM cleaner. I only wanted to use it for kid's mode (books and videos), streaming, book reading, and web surfing and those apps would often crash on load or hang. I was NOT multitasking between them, only trying to have one program up at a time. Do yourself a favor get something with at least 2 GB of RAM.

    Crashes

    This tablet crashed 3 times in the first 2 hours and that time was mostly spent trying to get it set up. I knew I was going to have problems when it took better than 10 sec to load the google home page on the browser. Are you kidding me - the google home page - that's as basic as it gets. I then tried to go to bestbuy.com - it really didn't like that. It was moving at a snails pace from page to page then it decided to crash. I restarted and tried 2 more times with same results after 10 to 15 min of web surfing. Ok somebody will say that I am not using it for its intended purpose. Well I am just trying to surf the web, check my emails and maybe watch a movie from time to time -not record an album, hack someone or write code. As for BestBuy - This is your house brand so it should say something positive about your company. I have other insignia products such as TV's with no complaints. Please put more quality electronics is these or don't bother putting them on the market. Now I have missed out on some other Christmas deals because I was banking this tablet! Lesson learned - you get what you pay for in tablets.
