I'm disgusted with the lack luster interface for Android provided with this tablet. The icons are spaced WAY too far apart and you can't do anything about it. I had to download a different launcher for it. Microsoft's is reluctantly better.

The included wallpaper was also ugly (only one choice was provided with the device), so I changed it right away.

Connecting to my network was a real hassle. For some reason there is no way to connect to "Hidden Networks" even if you type in the SSID manually. I had to unhide my network. That is, frustratingly, a security hazard. It does however support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections. (Update: It will connect to a 2.4GHz hidden network if you select "hidden network" under "Advanced" - this should have been automatic, not a hidden option, but it will not connect to my 5GHz hidden connection. I'm using a D-Link Router.)

The overall speed of the device is good, and so far it works with my Holy Stone Drone and I have another device ordered that requires an android device to operate it. (which is the main reason I ordered this).

So if you order this, you will need to tweak the interface. So far I have not noticed any large bloatware applications installed on it.

If you don't mind tinkering a bit, this is for you.

I'm reducing a star because the included launcher was a bad choice, and connecting to hidden networks should have been an automatic feature not a hidden option (and because hidden 5GHz doesn't work).
(Also note: the corners of the display are not sensitive enough to touch. It is hard to select things in the corner regions of the screen. I had to install a touch screen calibrator to try and fix the problem. Although it improved, it isn't great.)
