    This looks very good for the price but I don’t know how it is in the actual use.

      Retina screen + A31 = zero usability

          Atm i would recommend any dual OS Z8300 tablet from Teclast.
          There are models for every budget and every needs, depending on screen – RAM/ROM – connectivity.

            I would like to find something with a beautiful screen, at least 10 inch or somewhere close. I don’t care about pricing. I would like something for my girlfriend birthday, thank you.

              I’d go for Teclast Tbook 10 2in1 + magnetic docking keyboard

              Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300
              4GB RAM + 64GB ROM
              Win 10 + Android 5.1
              10.1″ screen 1920×1200 res
              6500mAh + 3500mAh (secondary battery inside docking keyboard)

              cons :
              no full-sized USB on tablet itself (full sized USB port is located on the docking keyboard)
              no 3G / 4G – only WiFi

              price : $180 + $64 = $244

    They offer great specs for a reason, they’re tablets suck big time and wouldn’t be worth having if they were free.

    I saw some people say bad things about light in the box. They are not 100% safety?

    A31 ? 2GB RAM ? c’mon… that’s garbage
    You can buy a Z8300 tablet from Teclast or Chuwi with same pricetag.

    No one would recommand buying a tablet with Retina screen and A31. Even if i don’t give much credit to antutu, you should just know this crap hits only 10 to 11k.

    119? if it was for 70 or less than it would be a good deal. This tablet is completely obsolete in terms of both android version and processor.

    By the time you add the shipping ( $35 in my case for standard shipping ) it’s not a good deal at all.
    I can buy better tablets with Atom and all from Gearbest for around $160 with shipping included.

    I had one Onda device on 2015 (paid arround 150$-160$) and it was worthless. Windows wouldnt conect to my wifi, the os windows was most in chinese, some useless apps preinstaled, and the android on it..meh.. If u want a android toy, go for a phone with Full HD, there are many good phones on the market arround 150-200$. But if u are stubborn and really want a tablet..meh, i will feel sorry for u
