Kurio Touch 4S 4-inch 8GB Kids Tablet w/Disney Apps
Bought this for my niece for Christmas. It stopped working and the screen froze up within one month and very little use. Could not reset or restart the device. Sent back to QVC and received refund.
Purchased this in Dec. on E/P.. Gave this to my six yr old granddaughter for B day in March.. My daughter set apps and parent controls.. Loads quickly to WiFi.. No issues as yet and I did purchase the extended warranty.. Granddaughter loves "her own" tablet...Waiting for EASY Pay once again so I can purchase another for second Granddaughters B Day who will be four in Aug!!!!!!!
Ok Q..... Waiting.....LOL
I purchased 2 of these before Christmas for my kids 7 & 9. They have loved them and I love the parent controls. Now it has Google Play along with Amazon so there are free apps available. Not all apps seem to work though. But Minecraft DOES:) The Kurio Store seems to only have apps for sale not free.
I gave it a 3 because after only 2 monthsI have to send both of them back for new ones from Kurio and pay for shipping even though it is defective. The good thing I did purchase the extra warranty and they will reimburse the cost. The problem is that the charger is not working well and sometimes doesn't charge at all. The Kurio will no longer take a charge from other andriod chargers either. Plus if I can get it to charge the slightest bump and the cord comes out.
Another heads up, there really isn't a way to speak to someone in person. It is all on "chat". They did resolve this issue quickly with offering an exchange for a new one. The problem is it will take 10-15 days once they receive the old one. Yep, sad kids.
I have to add that QVC has offered to refund the money and take the return. They are out of these so they can't replace it at this time. Good customer service on QVC's part.
Not what I expected.
I expected more. Not a great selection of books. And not age appropriate for 11 yrs olds. Although the book age is to 13 yrs old.
Kurio Touch 4S
Grandson got this age 6 and he loves it... I just suggest that you get a bumper Kurio Guard for this item... and most importantly a set of headphones or ear plugs as my grandson never wants to put his down. ** Would have rated a five, but this is his replacement original item had to be sent back due to screen going blank. So far so good on the second one.
I purchased 2 of these with for my daughter and niece for Christmas. I'd like to thank QVC for making it affordable and the delivery prompt and on time. I received it Christmas eve. THANKS QVC!!
I bought this for my little girl for christmas and she just absolutely loves it. Its just enough tablet and games for kids 6 and under
I ordered this tablet as a Christmas gift my 6 year old son. He loved it. He really wanted a tablet and I wanted to get him one that was affordable and would allow him access to games, music, pictures, and different shows while being able to monitor what he was exposed to do. It was awesome for that and even came loaded with some pretty cool pre-loaded apps and shows. I get to set what sites he can and can not visit and search for apps with him. There are some limitations on some of the apps you can download, but it is still quite useful. It even allows you to create different profiles and set guidelines for each profile. As the parent, I have full access to anything that I want and can pre-screen sites, games, apps, and shows before I allow him to access them on his user profile. If I don't want him to access them, I can remand access to my account for this app and restrict it from his user account. Having always opted for the iPad, Windows, and Nabi (1 and 2), I found that with this purchase, the Kurio is a very good and much cheaper alternative,especially for the kids that are 11 and under . Overall, if you're looking for something that is affordable, effective, and efficient for younger children, this is for you. It's a really nice tool for providing the beginner or kid friendly tablet experience without have to pay the more expensive iPad, Kindle, and Android tablet prices. Hope this is helpful!
This "tablet" is a big disappointment! I read such good reviews about this so I decided to purchase it as a Christmas gift for my daughter. Believe me when I say this, it isn't at all what it was described to be.
#1- It says it was loaded with Disney apps, which was only like 3.
#2- The battery life is horrible. It takes long to charge and dies within 1.5 hours of using it.
#3- It doesn't let me add any music to it, at all.
#4- I purchased an SD card for it and now it is stuck in there and will not come out. (Yes, it is the right size SD card for the slot.)
#5- The apps freeze, or it gives a message saying it can't load or unable to open.
#6- I can't upload or download anything using the USB cord.
#7- When using headphones the sound is terrible, you can barely hear anything even when the volume is turned all the way up.
#8- I was also wishing for Google Play, but that's okay.
I was so hoping this little gadget would be all that and a bag of chips but unfortunately, it isn't. My daughter says it is okay but I am honestly thinking of sending it back, I'm sure there is a better tablet out there somewhere.
disappointed child at christmas
I purchased it for my son for Christmas and he was disappointed and upset because trying to open apps they refuse to open. I even downloaded a game for him and it would only work in the store with the creator section and when you went to the user it refuse to even open it kept saying to re install. He is 13 years old and when he went on line it would turn off for no reason and I checked the settings and it seemed fine but I guess it was just defective. I returned the item.
better tech support
I purchase 3 of these for my grandchildren, however the first day the first one lost all of the apps. The second day the second one lost a parental approval, the third day the first one went blank just blacked out. The 4th day still no parental approval, tried to get technical support to help me with the first one I was gaven a step-by-step instructions that did not work I was also given ZIP instructions it does not work either! Third day I tried technical support, again still no response 4th day tried technical support again still no response! I am about ready to send it back to QVC and ask for my money back or ask for new game systems
Sad Birthday Boy :(
I bought this for my son's 9th birthday. I ordered because I was so impressed with the presentation and loved the price. I presented it to him for his birthday and sadly the screen froze in less than a day. The system over heats on the back, google play isn't an option, the camera is less than desireable, and very few free apps. It's packaged and ready to ship back. Very disappointing!
