Comment:
I just used this for simple web browsing, emailing and messaging. I installed only a handful of apps. The longer I had it the more annoying it became. Apps would fail to open. The email program wouldn't reply to emails after the chain got two messages long. The touch screen would frequently fail to respond. Honestly, I nearly flung this thing across the room several times in frustration. Finally, I had enough and stopped using it as it was far too frustrating. It was free from Verizon, and still not worth it. I almost forgot, but it would not always reconnect to my home wifi. It would switch to 4g and start using data without my realizing it.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Returned the tablet because we don't have a consistent 4G service in our area.<br />But it was a great little tablet when I could get 4G service.<br />I would recommend only if you have a strong 4G network.
