      It's too slow. I returned mine and grabbed the m8. You can get m8 for 137 at OW or 138 at HN

      It'll work but not be a decent experience.
      Your kid will hate online learning even more.

      Just get an iPad or galaxy tab s6. Hard enough to get a kid to enjoy learning than punish them with a poor user experience

        its a hard choice, i want to stay around $200 mark as he is only 5 and the risk of the screen getting cracked etc is high. (they have no concept of value…..)

    Important to point out that these are 2gb of ram, which Amazon seems to have not listed.

      That would be good! BUT NO.

      Lenovo says 1GB soldered, and Android Go :-(
      16GB eMMC and MediaTek MT8321.

      I got an older 1GB Lenovo tablet to use as a car GPS, but it really struggles to run Waze, cannot run Google Maps, and the wifi often refuses to connect to the hotspot, needing a reboot.

      Would this be any better? I think I need the $138 2GB M8 mentioned above.

        Oh wow 1gb in 2020!

          Only because it's Android Go. Regular Android will struggle on that.

            @flaminglemon: Android Go cuts the overhead of the OS a little.

            It's still going to absolutely choke on modern apps.

            •  

              @Merlict: Agreed. Only the "Go" apps might perform acceptably on this. I bet web browsing is going to be a nightmare.

              •  

                @flaminglemon: Web browsing in this will be an exercise in watching paint dry.

              •  

                @flaminglemon: Don't the "Go apps" run in the web browser?

                •  

                  @manic: Pretty sure they're individual apps. And you can't get them on regular Android. YouTube Go, for example, allows you to download videos to watch offline. Regular YouTube won't let you do that.

                  •  

                    @flaminglemon: I see. Looks like only some are web apps, notably "Maps Go".

    I really believe 1024 x 600 Pixels on 7" is gonna kill eyesight

  •  

    At this specification, it may pass as a photo frame

  •  

    tbh i rather get a used galaxy tab s 10.5 which is around this price. Screen is far better.

    Google should not allow google apps on devices with too little RAM. It just trashes the android experience.

  • +2 votes

    Don't buy this, it's utterly useless. It's so slow and underpowered it won't even run the most basic apps of today.

  •  

    1024x600 7" screen, hey that's the same as my Galaxy Tab from a decade ago.

  •  

    Just looking at the specs I'd run a mile rather than buy this…

    https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/tablets/android-tablets/tab-ser... Normal price from Lenovo is now $79 delivered.

  •  

    Pretty close to a neg for those specs.

    This is basically obsolete.

  •  

    I'd suggest something like the P80X for under $100 from Banggood AU warehouse instead. 2GB/32GB, 1280x800. If you want something a bit bigger the P10HD is under $140 from BG AU warehouse also, 3GB/32GB 1920x1080.

    They have the 9863A chip which seems to perform surprisingly well.

    I have the P10HD and an Alldocube iPlay 20 (similar to P10HD but 4/64GB) and pretty happy for the $. The iPlay does run a lot smoother, not sure if it's the extra GB of RAM or that it runs Android 10 instead of 9. Not available from AU warehouse at the moment but is around $180.

      I got the iplay 20 pro. Can recommend it. If you want to save money definitely go the non pro version.

    I dropped and smashed mine and I was happy it couldn't disappoint me any longer.

      tried with mine
      even the screen refuses to crack

      left it on the bonnet of the car once
      eight hours later it was still there

    Cheap alternative to a Elgato Stream Deck.

    After having a Samsung Galaxy tablet and an iPad both broken by the kids, despite being in rugged cases, I decided I wanted less stress in my life and bought two of these. They work remarkably well, especially when paired with BobjGear cases. The kids actually prefer the smaller size, which was a surprise to me. They're bright enough for home use.

    It runs the usual apps well: ABC kids, Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Khan academy kids, Inventioneers. I use the android Family settings restricting the times when the tablet can be used and it gets locked quite effectively out of those hours. I've removed all other apps (browser, YouTube, etc). It lasts all day and in the evening (downtime is 6pm) I just gather them up and plug them in for the night in the laundry room.

      Just curious - how's your YouTube experience on this (if you've tried it). Looking at max 2hrs continuous playback.

      Also can you share how Outlook/Gmail and basic Chrome searches run, considering 1GB ram?

      Cheers!

        Sorry, I can't help you with either of those :(
        I deleted/disabled Youtube, Chrome and Gmail, and it's a hassle re-enabling them. I've disabled the Google play store (you can't uninstall it) because my son would install a bunch of free apps with ads in them that are super annoying, and there's no way to prevent that in the play store. To install an app now, I have to go to settings, applications, find Google Play store and enable it, then remember to disable it again later.

        In terms of video playback, Netflix is performant enough that the kids are happy with it, haven't seen any buffering or freezing etc at all. They also use ABC kids iview and Disney+ and they're both fine too. So perhaps Youtube would be too? I don't know.

        Just a note: the play store doesn't have auto-complete and it seems to be less fancy, which suits me fine because I just want to get in there and search for an app I know the name of, but for adult use if you want to explore what apps there are, you'd get frustrated.

        Installing apps is slower than you'd expect, and the first time setup process is very slow - give yourself 10mins or something. But once the apps are loaded they seem to perform reasonably well, for the limited few that I've actually tried.

        Edit - oh, playback time - they use it for at least 5 hours a day and it seems to hold it's own, I think it's mostly video playback.

          Excellent, thanks for your in-depth response - that was very helpful!

          Similar to yourself, won't be using any other Apps, other than YouTube, emails and very basic Chrome searches for my mother.

          Has the 1GB caused any other headaches for yourself? Or if you could go back, would you get a bigger ram? Ta

    Will be a great device if you can load kitkat or marshmallow on it.
