Battery life not so good.
This is the best screen ever.
Camera not good on the low light.
Function are amazing and not using for everyday,
guys if you wont good battery life go to ipad air or ipad mini 2 w/ retina ok :)
I am a light user and this tab easily lasts me a day to go down to 65 - 70%. I don't see why it wouldn't last one day's moderately heavy use. Initially, when I loaded large pdf files in my tab, battery life was really bad then... because it used to lauch an android process called 'index service', which was a real battery drainer. I almost got mad over my new tab, thought about rooting it just to stop that stupid process from running. Then, I decided to see how much battery it can drain. I removed all my data, then loaded a 5000 page pdf. 'Index service' launched almost immediately and started eating battery. But, this time I did not force stop it and it continued eating battery for another two and half hours, draining me to 40% and there it stopped. No more battery draining during the next charge. It appears that 'index service' is an one time process which will drain you high when you load a large pdf for the first time, but if u allow it to run for the duration it wants to run, it will not bother you later. So, don't force stop it when it launches, that will not help. And another thing you should notice that this annoying process only does its job when the screen is on. So, if you are thinkin of putting the tab on charge with the screen kept off, that is not going to help either. Rather, start reading the pdf you just loaded and by the time you'll finish your reading you may notice the job is done.

The great problem with this tab is you won't remove your downloaded apps to memory
Card by any means, only photo and music can be transferred to sd card, so 16 gb memory
Only can't help. 32 gb variant still not able. In that case 64 gb Apple iPad mini far better with almost same price.

Washix, 23 Sep 2014hey dudes Finally, is there OTG support in this Tablet or NOT?It does support OTG, I tried it with 32gb usb memory stick. You can also buy usb duo stick that has normal usb on one and micro usb on the other side, it is very useful.www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LIXJ0OU/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_2/181-1463435-7415528?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_r=07C8BWRAQQ451PW1BVZ4&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=1535523702&pf_rd_i=B00IRUS7KU
Well, I only test on one external hdd, maybe my Hdd has problem, because all my 3 device fail to detect it (1 device is Galaxy S4)
The tab can make voice call, receive sms.
The biggest advantage would be the good 2K AMOLED screen. Very slim 6.6mm thick body.
No NFC. No gorilla glass.
Whatapps can be installed, but is downloaded from external apk.
Gaming is very good. Video playback is just awesome. It has 8MP camera with useful flash.
