More Highs :

Attractive IPS screen.

It has an attractive IPS screen with Encore 2 making excellent viewing at different angles and enough brightness even during indoor activities.

Audio

The features loud stereo speakers that get help from Wolfson Master Hi-Fi audio processing and Dolby Digital Plus sound customization (which can be found only by navigating through the Windows program files). When I listened to MOON's "Hydrogen," I really liked the crisp snares and controlled mids; the only thing I was missing was a little extra oomph for the pumping bass line.

Simple design.

The shell is made of silver aluminum giving it the required mechanical strength to resist any form of stress subjected on to the tablet with sides and back made of plastic material of different colors. However the tablet is solidly constructed with back curved making it feel comfortable when handling the device.

Purchased with one year of office 365. This is application such as word, excel, power point and oneNote on the tablet. It is an ideal application to support and manage personal information such as emails, notes etc.

More Lows :

Battery life.

The manufacturer claims that the battery is a long lasting up to 11 hours when fully charged while when used frequently, downloading and installing applications, playing games and browsing the tablet shut down after 6 hours.

General performance issues.

Though it has a 1270*800 pixel screen, this tablet has a problem in terms of screen resolution and screen sensitivity hence a big problem when clicking to select desktop items.

1GB of RAM.

The 1 GB RAM makes it run limited windows programs operating slower. The device is generally slow especially when running or downloading large applications

Camera complications.

The two cameras are not great resulting in photos of medium quality. The 5-megapixel back camera is no exceptional. It also has a 1.2 megapixel front camera ideal for video chats but still with the undesirable features.

No HDMI-out.

High Definition Multimedia Interface is a video/audio interface for transferring uncompressed video and audio. With no HDMI-out, the user cannot access the data.

This tablet has crappy cameras

The camera seems terrible, with just 8 megapixel. The colors get faded out very much, low light shots may look grainy and the shape also discourages easy taking of photos. The cameras focus is terrible because when your hand gets wobbling for a little the images becomes blurry.
