    Customer Video Review Length:: 9:04 Mins

    ProntoTec Q8 7 inch Dual Core Tablet is a very good value in price per performance. It has 4 GB SDRAM. After installing bunch of applications, I still had available 2 GB. This runs Android 4.2.2. Android. I have been using for 3 days with no issues. The performance of this box is great and I have used browser/email/games like Temple run as well as puzzle games. I will go into the specifications and review based on my user experience. You can see in my video review the game of Temple Run Oz.

    Most of tablets have ARM based processors. This makes sure all of the Apps in Google Play ecosystem are available. This has Cortex A8 Dual Core 1.2 GHz. If you look at my video review, I have screenshots showing the CPU speed and other kernel details. The screen is 800 x 480 Pixels and has a RAM of 512MB. This supports a wireless and cellular with Wi-Fi (802.11 BGN) and Support for 3G Dongles. Settings page has a IMEI number already assigned. Tablet has 2 cameras – Front 0.3M/Rear 2M. There is a built-in 2800mAh Rechargeable Lithium Battery. Battery came for a good 5 hours with moderate usage. Battery usage really depends on how heavy you use the system. Overnight it drained very less. Mobile Networking was on by default. I switched off as I was using only Wi-Fi mode. I suggest you go to Settings and tweak things which are not required. Developer Mode was enabled by default. I turned it off. The capacitive touch screen was really good, some occasions I had to press little harder and at right locations, but pinch-zoom, highlight, Copy-Paste all worked very well.

    It is great the tablet has HDMI interface along with micro USB Port, 3.5-mm stereo Headphone Jack, built-in speaker, microphone, micro SD card slot and a DC Input Jack. Note that for powering through wall adapter you need to use the provided DC input jack. I was surprised with the HDMI port inclusion and I can connect this to a HDMI capable monitor or any HDTV. Speaker was loud enough. IN a room, once I keep the tablet in a stand it was good. Speaker is on the backside, so you don’t want to lie this down on back as it will hamper the audio coming out. This is a design that I hope Android tablets change in coming months/years.

    Android tablets are really customizable to your heart’s content. It is here where ProntoTec shines. Using a native Android 4.2.2, they have achieved something at a low cost. This can have a very wide reaching audience. In many countries, where affordability is key, having a tablet like this with Wi-Fi is a big boon. Imagine having entire Wikipedia at your fingertips for a child. I tried few educational applications on this. I consider this as a big hit with educators than gamers.

    I tried Google Voice Search and asked “what is capital of United States”. The voice recognition part was great and it was able to recognize and dictate the answer. I also tried Wolfram Alpha and asked bunch of questions. E.g., what is world population, what is population of China etc? The microphone picked up correctly and answered through Wolfram Alpha. Apps like Calculator, Gmail performed flawlessly.

    I watched multiple video through few applications. Obvious first choice was YouTube. Was able to search and watch videos. I used TwIT.TV app and watched some segments of a podcast (video streaming through wifi). Again smooth playback. Handholding is really easy given the weight of it. It was a colorful blue; no heat observed handholding the tablet. It is plastic, and buttons are made of plastic. For a kid, this is perfect also though the feature set is equally appealing to an adult. I was so enamored with low cost computers in late 90s and it seems I am reliving them with tablet. If you want to listen to podcasts/watch video then this is perfect. Just keep it in a stand and connect to power. See my video review to get an idea of what I am referring to.

    For a computer geek, it is a challenge to design something with minimal resources – screen resolution, RAM, storage, chipset. ProntoTec has designed a tablet with budget conscious customer in mind. Out of the box, it worked to my satisfaction given the specification and price. Once powered on, it directly came to a working condition. No need to setup account prior to using. I signed with wifi, the wifi router was in one bedroom. I configured in another room separated by two rooms. There was no issue with wifi signal. Once connected, I created a Google account as well. I generated a Application Specific password as I had 2 factor authentication. Once signed on, I updated applications like YouTube, Google Keyboard etc. I also downloaded few applications like TwitT.TV, Tetris from EA, etc. I downloaded Chrome and browsed few websites. Listened to Audio / Watched Video. Out of the box battery needed a full charge. Initially without charge, I did a video stream and wanted to see how device shutdown. Sure enough it shut down as…

    This review is from: ProntoTec 7″ Android 4.2 Tablet PC, Cortex A8 1.2 Ghz Dual Core Processor,512MB / 4GB,Dual Camera,HDMI,G-Sensor (Black)
    I’m comparing this device with a 7″ NATPC tablet (£25), Asus T100 (£350) and the HP Slate 7 HD (£100).

    The ProntoTec has its faults but there aren’t many of them. The screen is poor but expected for the price. Its a cheap TN panel and doesn’t look as good as the IPS screen in the T100 or the (PVA?) Slate 7. Viewing angles are poor as is picture quality but this is a problem for all cheap tablets. Expect to pay two or three times the cost of the ProntoTec tablet to get a significantly better screen.

    That’s pretty much all that’s negative and worth pointing out. The processor is more than adequate. It’s faster than the single core NATPC and also the Slate 7 HD. The HP device has twice as much RAM as the ProntoTec but it feels more sluggish. The ProntoTec really is astonishing.

    Battery life is good if the screen is off, eg if its used as an mp3 player. There’s about 3hrs of battery life with the screen on. This is average for the price and is sufficient for a journey to work and back. It charges quickly too unlike the HP.

    Sound quality is very good when using good headphones (eg Monoprice). None are included but you do get a USB cable for connecting to standard connections from the micro USB slot and a screen protector too. You don’t get these with the HP and their inclusion is a nice touch.

    This device and the NATPC have other advantages over the HP straight out of the box. For a start they can connect to pretty much any drive, eg an NTFS format drive. This flexibility is a big bonus because the HP and similar big brand devices need to be rooted before NTFS drives can be installed. It also connects perfectly to my NAS (a hard disk which I can access via wireless instead of having to plug it in). The HP doesn’t. My only gripe is that unlike the other tablets the ProntoTec scans a drive before mounting it – it makes accessing an external HDD a chore.

    This really is an astonishing device and I would definitely recommend it. I’d like it even more if it had Bluetooth and could accept a SIM. That’s the advantage of the HP – internet anywhere prepaid for two years. I don’t want a dongle hanging out because it means the device won’t fit in my pocket. Integrated 3G would make this device a game changer and is a feature I would pay more for.

    The main problem for ProntoTec is there are lots of other manufacturers making similar devices and selling them on Amazon. The only thing that differentiates them is their colour. The addition of built in 3G internet would make this device even more of a practical entry point to computing for people who are poor. Even in the UK digital exclusion is a big problem. These Chinese manufacturers are doing more to solve this problem than the government are. Much respect.

    Great value tablet no big cost if damaged in use by youngsters…, 17 Aug 2014

    Verified Purchase(http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/community-help/amazon-verified-purchase/276-1769484-9949205', ‘AmazonHelp’, ‘width=400,height=500,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,toolbar=0,status=1′);return false; “>What is this?)
    Bought to let 5 year old grandson play games he plays on his parents phones whilst he stays with us over the summer.
    Arrived next day as per paid for. It’s cheap, it’s reasonably well made. It is surprisingly responsive, I like the addition of being able to change from performance to power save modes on the fly. Yes the screen isn’t the sharpest but fine for a 5 year old to play games. The supplied OTG cable worked with a USB mouse and with a USB pen drive correctly. First full charge lasted around 3.5 hours mostly setting up, updates installing games and testing various functions. Not playing the actual games. On the downside the PSU plastic earth pin is so wide it almost causes the entire socket to come off the wall, it’s almost an interference fit instead of a light push fit. However, It uses the same USB connector as all our other phones and tablets so it is just as easy to use one of the better quality chargers we have through the USB port. Also the supplied PSU the jack plug at the tablet end sticks out and could easily be damaged or cause damage to the tablet.
    The wifi worked very well and the download speeds of some large games was excellent, no drop outs of signal causing any issues. I have since bought and installed a 16GB SD card and moved as many Apps over to it as possible. Some dont give the option and might require an app manager other than the manual method I used built in to the system.
    It came rooted with a super user app installed and with ES file explorer installed, my file manager of choice. It’s good to go and possibly tinker with.
    The HDMI is different at the tablet than my existing HDMI cable so I need to buy another one, although the point of the tablet is to keep him off the TV so his Nanna can still use it! If it’s not a rainy day they will be outside anyway whilst I am at work., the other weak point, the backlight brightness levels aren’t bright enough for outside use if it is sunny. So the tablet shouldn’t get ‘bounce’ tested on the patio. It wouldn’t stand up well if it did, but then at under £30 no big loss compared to a Note 3 or similar being ‘bounced’.
    I have installed a free UK TV app which will allow him to watch Cbeebies if he wants to, He isn’t allowed to use anything whilst plugged in and charging and so the limited battery life almost becomes a feature! He can’t spend all the day on it playing Hay day, Muppets or watching TV without interaction with others!
    Definitely worth the price tag and if you want a better screen for not much more the same manufacturer produces a 1024×600 resolution version with better specs. Some might prefer that route even for a grandson of 5yrs. For our needs I would say this one fits the bill perfectly.
    The only item missing that would be a bonus if supplied with the tablet would be a protective gel case for some protection with hard surfaces found inside a house!
