"This is a summary of my Amazon review, as there is not enough space here.
There are serious bugs in the software. - The brightness and color-balance change at random. I spend half my time going to the settings menu and resetting the brightness (no, it's not set to auto, nor is it a matter of power settings). - Lots of bloatware/demoware that you can't even remove from the screen, let alone uninstall. - Other unidentified pieces of software (e.g., ANT HAL Service) that cannot be removed, nor are they documented. - Multiwindows does not work. - The two "themes" are annoying; no way to set a plain black background. - It's OK that there is no support for ExFAT -- no reason to make MSFT richer, but they also *removed* support for ext3fs and udffs for the sdcard. Why? - It's already June 9 and the promised-for KitKat release is not even promised any more. What gives? - Customer support is atrocious. - Can't even seek help in the forums, where moderators censor criticism."
"I bought this tablet after a intensive research and this is my first tablet. I love the design but the camera is a total waste. I can't believe its 8MP as the clarity is really poor and sometime I get blur pictures and pictures are completely not visible on low light. Reading is really easy with this tablet and battery is the only reason I bought this tab. and wait. if you are going to buy this tablet for gaming, do not buy this. as smash hit/subway surfers are working really cheap. Also, Please keep in mind that this tablet do no support whatsapp."
"Very happy with the tablet thus far. Battery life, screen, kickstand, speakers, and performance are all great. Would've liked to see support for 5.8GHz WiFi instead of just 2.4GHz but it does support 802.11n so WiFi connection is still fast."
"Pros: - Very nice innovative design- Excellent battery life- Absolutely love the stand- Great Dolby sound- Multi-user capability including restricted one for kids. Cons: - Serious issue with colors, brightness and saturation when holding in different positions. I don't want colors/brightness to change in hold mode. Everything turns to red. - Processor can't handle any heavy applications, even like skype, hangout, play store all hang. - First time signed into play store and the whole tablet froze; had to hard reboot 5 times. - Camera is ok. Many pics came out blurred. weird placement of the rear camera. - Can be difficult to hold in horizontal position because of uneven weight distribution. - Longer Buffering -been a week now but might return it because of perf & instability"
"Kickstand and specs have all been discussed ad nauseum. Love the design etc. Yet to love the device. Have had this for 3 days, and everyday it has logged me out of my google account. Having to set up my account on the tablet everyday is tiresome. The tablet has crashed 3 times total. Very disappointed that there's no sim card slot in this version yet. I should have noticed this, but all reviews of the demo model had said 3G would be possible. Early adopters suffer here. Same with the new version of the keyboard cover. Promised when tablet was announced in Feb, but my tablet shipped with the old cover.
Will return the keyboard, seriously considering returning the tablet to wait for a version with sim card slot."
