I dont have this tab. But i tested this tab in many parameter. performance- poor,battery-less than average,display-less than avg. ,speaker-not too bad,connectivity-really terrible,processor-not good.graphix-no ,ram-sufficient,internal memory-less. first of all this tab is from "ricoh" which is not a tab manufacturur company.they orderd it from china in bundle .and as u know.what is china made product. And cg govt they are just making us fool.because they are politician and they are just completing their formalities.they are looking on your vote.remember these thing.
