This tablet is great! I loved the first generation and loved the second generation even more. Love everything about it. It is like a "phone." I have all the things android phones have on them. Plus social media. I once had a friend step on the screen and it didn't crack or break. I was surprised. My friend also dropped it on the edge. It wouldn't turn on for like an hour,so I let it sit over night. The next morning it was working just fine. If you want something like a phone but isn't this is for you. Great display. Very pleased with this product. The Nexus 7 will always be my first choice on a tablet, no doubt about it!

I love this tablet. It performs so well you may forget how inexpensive it is. It's got all the features you'd want (NFC, wireless charging, etc.), the latest version of Android, and is absolutely a joy to use. I'd recommend this to anyone in the market for a tablet. I also love Samsung products (my primary device is a Galaxy S5) but I've used the Samsung tablet that is comparable to this in terms of size and price range, and it doesn't even come close.
