Contradictory to the first review, battery life is quite reasonable on this tablet. Initial setup of tablet drained the battery, but still got 4.5hrs on the first charge. Charged overnight and next day it lasted all day turned on with about 6 hours of use watching 2 movies and playing Clash of Clans for over an hour. The 8" screen is crisp and sharp. Now the initial boot of the tablet took a long time, it was syncing with my Google account and automatically downloaded all my apps, so in the long run saved time downloading one by one and searching. The Lollipop OS does this when you sign in with the same Google account you have registered. The next day it booted was OK, still took about 1min 45sec, but I noticed there were more app updates. So instead of turning it off after finishing using it, tapped the power button for sleep mode where the next morning I simply tapped the power button again and it was instant on and only used 10% Battery overnight, so pretty good. The "safety bumper" included with this tablet is great, saved me spending another $20 so it made the tablet an even better value proposition. Although I am not going to purposely drop my tablet to see how well the bumper protects it, I feel it could help prevent damage if an accidental drop ever happened, but like any device with a screen (including cellphone) no protection is perfect, but kudos to Visual Land for including the bumper with this tablet. Overall I am very happy with this tablet. Price is great, screen is great, performance is good, and included bumper is a valuable plus. I just noticed there now is a version of this tablet with a keyboard case, so I will buy a second tablet with that for myself and the kids can use this one with the bumper.
I would recommend this to a friend
