Not sure, why people are hating on this tablet. Its not meant to be top of the line, crazy amazing etc etc. It is a mid range device and I think it nails it really well, especially for the price. Yes it doesnt have Google play out of the box. But use your search function people, there are at least 2 tutorials on how to install google play on this device. I had it up and running within 10 mins. I am quite pleased with this iteration and its price tag, you wont get anything better for the price.
