As has been described repeatedly elsewhere, this tablet is great, with 2 exceptions. 1. Screen - Yes the screen kind of sucks. The resolution is decent, but if you're not looking at it straight on, it washes out quickly. You can think of it as a privacy feature if you like. :) 2. The stock...Read the full review →
