Dual Core processor is a little dated for this tablet in the day of Quad Core, but gets day to day operations done effectively... some on screen lag is visible to the trained eye, but the untrained will not notice.Nice form factor, love the front mounted speakers, controls well placedScreen is nice, and very capable for the task

Being an owner of the iPad 4 and the Galaxy Tab 2, I have to say I do not like the G2. It is slow, has very little ram, a very poor display, and many other bad things. This tablet should be a lot cheaper. if you're looking for a tablet under 400$, your best bet is still the iPad 2.

Just bought one used with 4G LTE for cheap. Price for used has come way down. Construction is cheap. Fair amount of flex. 4G LTE is very good. This low a resolution in 2013 is a bit jarring, but I knew that going in. I have seen the bad reviews around and was worried about response time, but I find it reasonable, and that is coming from a first gen Nexus 7. But I don't do anything challenging with it. Netflix and Slingbox look good.
