7 inch Android 4.0 ICS Tablet Center-ST0716-16GB


Pros: Comes with Google Play, the battery life is pretty good (lasted at least 6 hours of continuous use with browsing, skype for a couple hours, and a few angry birds games, and still going). Build quality seems well enough. The broken english in the users guide provided some good laughs. Touch screen is responsive. Wife said the earphone quality has is good though we have some nice earphones.
Cons: Only 512MB RAM. If it was 1GB then it'd be a little smoother though I haven't noticed too much lag on the device. Angry birds does have a few hiccups here and there. It feels heavy after holding it for a while, though there are tabs out there that weigh more.
Other thoughts: This would be great for someone that just wants a tab. I had very low expectations, and my wife thought it would be a total piece of junk, but after playing with it for a bit, it wasn't bad at all. The graphics processor is alright, don't expect completely smooth performance all the time in games, if you play them. I didn't have any hiccups in videos except for netflix being lame.
Push button response is slow. You have to press and hold the button for a moment before it registers. It may be for ease of use so that if you accidentally graze the button, you don't lose everything you're doing. Person who put the screen protector on it at the factory did a horrible job. I see every little spec of dust on there although there's only one that's in the viewing area. Then again, I have destroyed well over 20 screen protectors through the life of my smartphones because I nerdrage over dust and lint.
All in all this tab was a good buy if you're in the market for a cheap device. I just wanted to get one to appease my wifes want for a tab, and it's done that. She wanted a Samsung Tab 2 and I didn't want to pay for it. This is a good replacement, for the price. :)
