Money Supermarket's INSPECT A GADGET: Tablet Review

Monday, May 20, 2013

I was kindly contacted by and asked if I would like to take part in their new initiative called 'Inspect-A-Gadget'. Where basically they want to find out if cheaper travel gadgets can live up to the more expensive gadgets. I was given a choice of 5 gadgets and I ended up choosing a tablet.

I've always fancied an iPad and so I had pretty high expectations for this tablet and I really wanted it to do well! I went for the black colour, out of a choice of six colours. The tablet is lightweight, surprisingly enough it doesn't feel cheap, and comes with the latest Android operating system. Its a similar size to an iPad mini which makes it perfect for travelling with and just slipping into your hand luggage. It came already half charged so that meant I could turn it on straight away which I love as I'm rubbish at being patient and waiting for things to charge. Once turned on, my first thoughts were that the screen wasn't very good quality, if you're expecting image quality to be the same as an iPad then you'll be disappointed. However considering this is a quarter of the price of an iPad, the screen isn't bad at all. Another thing to note is that the charge doesn't last very long, its says an average of 3 hours but I've had to re-charge this a few times already and i haven't been playing on it for that long..

You can basically do everything you can on a normal tablet; download apps, browse the internet, check emails, etc. And it even has a memory card slot, perfect for storing files you want to travel with. Admittedly it can be a little slow at times and judging from the mixed reviews, its not the most reliable gadget. I've had no problems with this so far however. For just under £42 this little gadget is perfect for travelling with and if you've not got the budget for more expensive gadgets then this is a great alternative.

What do you think of cheaper gadgets?

  3. Such a bargain, a great alternative to an ipad :) x

  4. That's a bargain, I was actually contemplating buying similar but the 3 hour battery would be annoying to me- especially when out and about.

  5. Such a bargain - very tempting!


  6. oo this is such a cool post! I do think i pads cost a silly amount so this is a great alternative xxx

  7. I have the iPad Mini and I love it! But seeing this for only £42, plus it comes with a memory card slot- that's pretty good! I can imagine this being good for young children to play games and educational apps on. Then you wouldn't be so worried if they dropped it!
