E255391 - Coby Kyros 7" Diagonal 4GB Android TouchscreenWi-Fi Tablet
Bought this with the intention of giving it to my grandson and to purchase another one for the 2nd grandson.
I really like it but was my first purchase and I relied on the pitch and did not do my research. This can go on the web but it is not Google Play supported, meaning you can not download any play apps so banking apps and other corporate apps which have to be Google downloaded are not supported.
There are a lot of free games and fun apps via Getjar and every so often other apps look the other way. I can not get Netflix to work but others have. There are some great techy support websites where you can learn.
I do like it just dont like it not being supported on the Google play format.
Wanted to use this for travel but the grandkids love Netflix on our phones so it's not going to stop that useage.
I strongly urge going for one with Google Play for the market app already installed - it opens a significantly larger world.
I will travel with this one because I can use it for reservations, boarding passes. Printershare allows me to print from the web browsers.
Other note, it is available cheaper elsewhere but we all love the QVC customer service so you have to decide cheaper or someone to talk with.
Decent for kids, OK for travel and checking email. Other stuff, a definite learning experience.
Great Purchace for the price
I purchased this for my nine year old daughter and she loves it. She was able to download android market and games and is able to play them when we are on long rides. She loves that she has wifi and can access the internet. The price is great and the product is great as well for the price.
A Really Nice Item
Bought one for my wife and she really likes it (when she can get it away from me).
PURCHASED FOR MY 8 YR OLD DAUGHTER AND SHE LOVES IT. SHE CAN DO JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING MY 12 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CAN DO ON HER LAPTOP. NO COMPLAINTS. GREAT PRICE & LOVE THE EASY PAY :)
I've had the product for about a week now and it's easy to use and does everything I need it to. It was easy to connect to the internet, which was my initial concern. This product is great for basic use for for young kids, teenagers, and adults.
It's okay and really a good deal if you need something to get onto the internet, etc. I bought this for my 9 year old and both of us had a hard time with the screen. It is not "glidey" like most screens that you use your finger on. This comes with a stylus and now I know why. You more or less have to use it to navigate around. The wifi works fine. The whole thing work fine. I would say the screen is the most aggravating part. We returned it because Walmart had the Kindle fire for $199 with a $50 gift card making it only $149. And the screen on it glides like no tomorrow. Just like a Ipad. But if you need something cheap, something to get on the internet, and don't mind a little hassel then this will suit you well.
I selected this one because of the price and wi-fi and other fun options. I really wanted it to read books, but wanted it to surf the internet also. It was too cumbersome to obtain the correct 'app' to view books and I still could never purchase my books from the actual device. I have to purchase my books from my computer, then send to the device, but it was difficult to navigate to the correct page to view my books. I am opting for what I hope will be a more user friendly name brand item.
I ordered this for my 12 year old son for Christmas. At first the value seemed great! However, this tablet was first advertised by QVC as having a webcam. It didnt. The "android" system does not work the same as other android products. If my son downloads an app from the "getjar" becuase the android market is not available, it downloads the app to my cell phone?????? Also the charger port broke after only 1 month of use. Now I am fighting with Coby about the Limited 1 year warrenty. Dont waste your money! Save for the ipad or Samasug tablet!
This is my first Tablet so I'm getting acquainted with it's features an enjoying myself. Runs a little slow then what I expecte but could also be a connection issue on my part. Overall I'm very satisfied and greatfull that I was able to purchase such a popular device formers then $110.
Good Purchase for ther price
I bought this for me for my birthday. It was a good present to get.
I really enjoyed this product. it is great. I bought this for school and also my kids, the love it I love watching veggytales on it. Its great it does everything as told. Great product:)
I tried to connect the tablet to my portable hot spot and it will disconnect by itself, it will not accept it. I tried downloading the netflix application and when I put my account, sent it to another tablet I owned previously,. I tried to reset it back to original settings but it will do it, called the number provided to customer service and there was no answer. I sent it back, it is not worthe all the trouble.
