i want to buy this tab does it support apps like whatsapp,facebook or twitter?
dondo, 02 Dec 2013Why no rear camera? Clumsy taking photographs.if you want photograph its better for you to buy digital camera or DSLR im sure you will not regret the rest of your life...lol
I purchased a 'bundle' from 3 at x-mas that included two Alcatel One Touch Tab 7. Altough identical builds, I can only configure a hotmail.co.uk account on one of them but a .com account on both. The Alcatel help desk blamed the ISP - rubbish!
Wifi connection is good but keeps dropping out - even when sat next to the router! Most times I have to reboot the tablet!!! The deal included a MiFi unit, which I thought I did not need, but is useful when out and about because it has no 2G, 3G or 4G!
The lack of an extra camera is no big deal, I bought them so that I could call/see my wife when I am away on business trips - if I wanted to take pictures I would use a camera!
I streamed videos to it and found the video quality to be very good.
Sadly, the screen is now cracked from one side to the other. My wife assures me she did not damage it in any way so unless it over heated..., who knows. There is a repair service but will cost a minimum of £60 to have a new screen fitted - half the cost of the tablet - not sure if it is worth it.
Had I known what I do now, I would never have bought this device.
1) Realistically, the screen is too small - go for a 10".
2) The MiFi allows you to connect to an ISP but you are better off having this feature internal.
3) GPS is not essential but when you see what it can do for you on a phone (not just navigation) you find that you miss noy having it on the tablet!
just to make it clear from my previous post... charging port is not fitted well and the connection of the male socket does not fit as well to the wall... has a little cranky sound on the right side while on portrait position... HD is good though...
i just had the the alcatel one touch 7 HD tab with a phone from sun cellular. the looks are not that bad and the features are good if you know how to navigate around the apps. however, i'm disappointed on the charging port. it doesnt fit well as if alcatel rushed the production or something. the male socket keeps on dropping from the wall. whew... i wish this company will live out to its prupose and that is to make competitive devices. i think this is not a local brand so please do good on your gadgets... what i love most is the high definition screen. if you got a good launcher like ESPIER with the CARTOON theme you'll appreciate the HD (",)
Very poor camera,sometimes the keys will not type,screen cracked very easily, my one will not charge now as the contact is not there when the charger is plugged in...has to be charged in a very awkward position to get the contact,which also it means it cant be at all used while charging.I have only had it since Christmas.the screen is cracked in 2 places and it doesn't charge.I like my little tablet though.Wi-fi is good! I have no problem with the internet.
pleas guys help me i want buy this tab just for videos and pdf or word is this tab is good for this using pleas help me or it hangs a lot one more thing is it has a good battery life thnx
the wifi connection dropout is annoying , but can be fixed, go to settings>wifi>Advance>select - Keep wifi on during sleep.

For me i think will be just a waste of time and money to buy a tablet that doesn't have a 3g and again the camera is poor. VGA camera is dead long time
This tab's back portion gets hot when used, you may expect to smell burnt wires or something when its been used for more than 2 hours straight (they say its normal). The video player app crashes all the time, the store dealer said to install a different video player app (will do that and observe). You cant set the camera pixel (its locked on 5megapix and no other selection). You have no option to save taken pics on your SD card slot. It gets so slow if you use 8GB and higher SD cards (especially when you have live wallpapers active). Theres no file manager app.
