Seems to be available only from the China warehouse, so don't expect super fast shipping.

Otherwise, this looks like a pretty killer deal.

Nope. You're pretty much SOL if anything goes wrong. As I mentioned in another thread, SD needs to stop taking money to promote these deals where the customer has no real recourse if problems arise. But they don't care. They got their money.

Hmmm. I am tempted to buy but no US warranty is very disturbing.

Chinese tablet imported into the US. (not designed for US consumers) I wouldn't expect any type of warranty or support. Also an older OS for a 'new' tablet.

Tempted but too many ???'s about this chinese specific model and would make it difficult for mom to use...

Quote from renho View Post :
I would really warn anyone against getting this tablet. Mine just arrived and it is clearly not configured for the US, English-speaking customer. Chinese prompts would regularly appear even after I select English as my language of choice. Worse, Google apps do not come installed with this tablet. There is no Google Play, Docs, etc preinstalled. Instead, you get a bunch of Chinese language which is useless for me. Trying to get a refund on this now.

----------
Be cautious of buying from GB. Their customer service is worse than non-existent, it's deliberately deceptive and will try to give you the run around. Spent a month trying to fight with them because they sent me a different item than what I ordered (worth about $300 less than what I paid). PayPal was useless to help since GB has a loophole of requiring you to cover ship-back costs and PP allows it.
-----------
Well it WAS advertised on slickdeals to a English-speaking audience (not to mention gearbest did not express anywhere it is a "Chinese tablet". The issue here is not that there are some features of the tablet I am disappointed by (e.g. battery, size, etc); it is that this tablet is fundamentally unusable to someone who is English-speaking. I mean if I can't have a Google account on the tablet, if I can't access the Google Store, and that I can only use Chinese apps, WTF am I going to use this tablet for?

And so perhaps I should have trusted some of the cautionary advice here, but to provide a tablet with no Google Play is plain deceptive, and stating "you should have known..." is letting Gearbest (and Slickdeals, since Gearbest is probably its affiliate) off the hook.

I went for this deal last month. Took two weeks to arrive but have to say it's been very solid since I've had it. Definitely a good deal at this price point

I should share my experience here, I bought a flashlight from them, the highend $160 one, it went kaputt in 5 months, I asked, they offered repair, I need to pay return shipping back to China ($24) which is fine, but the turn around time is just crazy, I sent the item out on Aug 8. And just received the repaird item yesterday. Do your math on how long that took lol...

All the documentation was in Chinese. When you fired it up I picked English as a language and from there it was stock Android 6.0. I downloaded the Google now launcher and I was good to go. I would give it to my mom after I set it up. Probably not straight to her

Got one last go around for my son.

It's fully English and has play store and all that jazz. Setup had a language selection and to my eye the tablet appears the same as any other Android 6.x tablet.

Screen is descent, speed is descent, speakers are just OK. So far it just chugs along. Using MX Player or VLC (with any needed added codecs) it handles 1080p HEVC files without issue (haven't tried 10 bit 1080p HEVC yet).

As other said no real warranty but so far all is good.

Gearbest took their time actually getting around to shipping the thing (about 2 weeks after order) and it took about 10 days to US using US Line. Arrived in its box stuffed inside a padded envelope. No issues with how it was packaged...the box protected stuff well.

I bought this last go around too, it has been over 2 weeks and my order still says processing, I even paid for faster shipping than the free option but they haven't even packaged it yet, so be prepared to wait a long time potentially
