E249661 - Coby 8" Kyros 4GB WiFi Touchscreen Android Tablet
Please do not waste your money.. This tablet is not user friendly, very hard to download apps
Great for the Price
I wanted a tablet but didn't want to put a lot of money into one. I saw this and ordered and now I don't know how I lived without it. I have access to games, facebook, movies and use it when I am on my treadmill which helps make the time go by quickly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a tablet but doesn't want to pay a lot for one. Easy to use, easy to download and I haven't had any problems with mine. The screen is easy to read and I was surprised at the clarity of the movies that I downloaded.
I bought this as in november for a gift for one my children as a Christmas gift, but decided after they got something similar from his grandparents, I decided that would give it to my other child as a gift for their birthday.
The day before the birthday I went to download their favorite songs and shows onto the coby kyros.
I was so irate when all that happened was that the COBY logo would show and then it would shut down. I tried resetting it and nothing happened. i am so disappointed as now as a parent I DO NOT HAVE A BIG GIFT for my child. I have other small things that I can thankfully give to them .
I would totally recommend you open the box and check first if it is working that way you won't have disappointed the recipient or make yourself look really bad as I was. I was and still embarrassed that everyone else who gave gifts looked better than their own parents.
DO NOT BUY
This tablet is horrible. Don't waste ur money I replaced it with kindle fire!
I bought this Tablet for my wife. She loves it but the screen for the camera is GREEN. Not sure why. This was a Xmas present. NOT HAPPY WITH THE CAMERA.. For the most part everything else is okay. My wife will be contacting their customer service today to see if they can trouble shoot the Tablet or if we will be sending it back for a new one or a refund. I hope it's not that big of a problem and they can get the camera fixed.. I'll post another review if we are NOT satified with the answers from Coby customer service.
Nice Tablet For the price
I bought this for my 11 yrs old daughter it has a pretty fast response time & will be just right for her the picture quality is not the greatest but it will do for a first tablet.
Not user friendly
I ordered this for my daughter. I am very computer savvy, but this is very hard to use. It will not let me download apps, it tells me it's not available right now, try later. I try later, but it still will not let me do it at all. I'm going to work on it for a few more days, but if I can't get it to work like my 7" non-brand tablet, I will send it back. I can't even get it to pan out for facebook. It won't me in on the facebook app, so I go in by regular and it's so big, I can't do anything. Will see what I can do with it for a few more days. :-( If I can't get it to work correctly, I'll update my review.
Did not like
This item would not store my WiFi so every time I wanted to down load an app it would shut down in the middle of the down load and I would have to reset the WiFi and start over. It kelp freezing up so I would have force a shut down. There were some other things but I wanted to keep short, Sorry but it is going back.........
coby kyros tablet
This was a very good item for the price can do some of the thing that the big name tablets can do.
Great for the money
My daugher loves her new tablet, the 'only' glitch is that the picture quality is not so great, but what can you expect for the money. It is easy to use, and has a lot of options. Love it.
I returned it.
I tried several times to get into my email acct I've had for over 10 years and it would not let me. I spent hours trying. Even went to the Coby website..which is very useful but no go. I think this astroid is good if used as a Kindle but other than that, I personally wasn't impressed.
Good tablet for the price
I am very pleased with my purchase of this tablet. I have no complaints about its performance. Thanks QVC for a great product at a great price!!!!*
