    This review is from: Dragon Touch R10 10.1” Google Android 4.1 Dual Core Tablet MID PC, Rockchip RK3066 Dual Core Cortex A9 CPU up to 1.6GHz, 1Gb RAM, 8Gb HDD, Multi-Touch Screen, Front Camera + Rear Camera, Google Play Pre-Installed, HDMI 1080P Output, Skype Video Calling, Netflix, Flash Supported [By TabletExpress] (Personal Computers)

    We ordered this as it was the cheapest 10.1″ Android 4.1 tablet with at least 1 GB of RAM. We spent 2 weeks scouring local electronics stores and online offers to find the most we could buy for $150. This was a gift for my wife for her birthday and she hasn’t let go of it since it arrived this afternoon. Out of the box it is not flash compatible but if you download a free app called the “photon browser” it will allow you to play Adobe Flash content. The features advertised are nice, the only downfall of this tablet is the screen brightness is lacking, so much so I tried downloading apps to “force” more brightness but I’m not sure if that’s even possible through software. We’ve only had it for a day so I will edit this product review after 2 more weeks of continuous use.

    I would update the rating to 5 stars if the screen brightness was better and it was truly FLASH ready.
    ____________________________________________

    Day 5 update: Today is the first day I have been able to use the tablet exclusively so I will share what I’ve experienced.

    The micro USB port when plugged in DOES NOT offer a secondary charging location, so plugging it into a USB car charger or any USB port to charge will not work. Not a huge deal but the connection for the wall charger is thin so prolonged use will determine the durability of the provided charging cable.

    Another downside is the length of the charging cable at 48″. While this may be a tiny inconvenience to some, holding the tablet in bed r relaxing largely dictates proximity to a wall outlet. I haven’t used it in such a way that warrants me to using it while charging, its just a quirk. The location for the charger connection isn’t placed very well if you intend on having the tablet oriented with the screenshot button on the bottom, but the 4 way screen rotation helps the design flaw.

    Battery life is impressive but it may something to do with the brightness of the screen… for a 10″ dual core about 12 hours of constant use it performed remarkably well. I must note that the charging to consumption ratio is negative (using the tablet while charging) certainly extends the life of your session, in order to fully charge efficiently, it can’t really be used.

    The tablet is also very light weight and easy to handle. Its a little thinner than my motorola droid RAZR in a slim fitting case. The difference is negligible. I’ve been searching for a universal case for it for a few days that doesbt imoede the lock/volume buttons and other ports found on the intended bottom edge of the tablet. The lack of accessory support is largely due to its only been released for a few weeks.

    Overall I am impressed with the quality and functionality of the tablet thus far and I am happy with our purchase. My original 4 star rating will remain. I’ve also emailed the seller asking how to increase the brightness through non traditional ways.

    I recently got this tablet, and I’m really impressed. For the price, you can do more things than with an expensive tablet, mostly because has a lot of ports.

    I don’t even needed a tablet, I just wanted it as a notebook, but it surpassed my expectations so much that I’m using it as a laptop, with the right apps I can do everything I need.

    Pros.
    – Lots of ports, so no need for carry adapters or anything
    – Is really fast and responsive, has almost the same specifications than the Samsug Galaxy Tab 3, that cost like $240 more (Galaxy Tab 3 cost $400). The only thing that lacks, is some screen resolution and the “Gorilla Glass”.
    – Good looking, I really like the design.
    – Speakers sound really good, even with full volume
    – Most important the price $160

    Not so bad
    – The maximun brightness, is not so bright, but it’s OK, I don’t need more brightness and I believe this will save me extra battery.
    – Screen rotate function takes some time to realise that has to rotate, no big deal because I always use it like horizontal way. When some application only works in the vertical way, it changes fast. I think the sensor is the problem.
    – Doesn’t have bluetooth, but has many options to transfer files, and many ports to connect accesories

    Cons.
    – Micro USB or USB doesn’t charge the tablet, so you have to carry the charger if you use the tablet a lot.
    – Gallery, but I think this is android gallery’s fault, when you plug a USB flash drive or something, gallery creates albums of every folder with images, when you unplug the flash drive, albums remain there with a blank image, luckly there is a “select all” function for delete them.

    I totally recomend this tablet, but I have used it only a couple of days, so if anything happens, I’m definitely going to update this review.

    Almost the perfect tablet, April 12, 2013

    ***Update as of 7/1/2013*** Please see below for my actual review – I just wanted to let others know that my experience with this tablet has been great with no problems. For what it’s worth, I am left handed and I have no problems with the built-in S-Note application (or any application) for that matter. My hand does not bump into things and I believe this tablet was made to accommodate both left and right hand users (despite the storage location of the pen).

    ***Update as of 6/3/2013*** Apparently the comments section is so long, users have stopped reading the How-to’s and have asked me how to use the microSD card for external/internal storage. Here’s a quick excerpt so you don’t have to dig through the comments:

    1. Firstly, you need to root your device which is VERY easy – Download and run an app called “Framaroot-1.4.apk” – Here is where I downloaded it from:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2130276

    3. You can also follow these instructions for rooting your device:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2229788

    3. Download one of the apps from the Google Play store and read the program’s descriptions. It should walk you through the whole setup process.

    Root External 2 Internal – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.codlab.int2ext#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDIxMiwiZXUuY29kbGFiLmludDJleHQiXQ
    or…
    GL to SD

    Hope that helps!

    ***Update as of 5/23/2013*** If I haven’t covered something here or in the “comments” section, feel free to drop me a question in the comments section and I’ll do my best to help you out. Thanks again for all the “Helpful” ratings you’ve given me. It makes me happy to know I’ve helped some of you. I understand I can’t please everyone so keep your negative comments to yourself please 🙂

    ***Update as of 5/7/2013*** Attention U.S.A. owners of the Galaxy Note 8. While we all know the U.S. version didn’t get phone capabilities (3G data), I found an app on the Google Play Store (free) that allows you to make and receive phone calls for free. All you need is a wifi internet connection (Starbucks, your home wifi, etc) to place calls, and a Google Voice account (free). Firstly, go set up a free Google Voice account so you can get your free phone number (do a search on Google for “Google Voice”.) Lastly, download the following app from the Google Play Store: “Groove IP Lite”. When you run Groove IP, the application will want to link itself to your Google Voice number (assuming you set this up) and the rest is very seamless. The app allows you to use a Bluetooth device for making calls or the built in speakerphone. Enjoy!

    ***Update as of 5/6/2013*** Look at the last page of the “comments” section for my instructions on installing flash and rooting the device. I’ve posted instructions on how to install Flash and root your device. I had too many emails to respond to so here ya go!

    ***Update as of 4/25/2013*** I have found an app on the Google Play store that will allow you to use your micro-SD card as the “internal” storage and it’s free. Additionally, after reading some tech articles, I figured out how to get Flash working on this device along with being able to quickly, safely and easily root the device. If you want more details, post your contact info in the comments section and I’ll email you whatever it is you’re after. I’m afraid Amazon will delete this review if I post links to 3rd party sites.

    ***Update as of 4/23/2013*** I still love the Note 8 and highly recommend it. If you have any questions that I don’t answer in this review, feel free to comment and I’ll respond back to you when I can. Thanks for all the “Helpful” votes!

    My main reason for buying this tablet was/is to use it for taking lecture notes and reading books (college/work/technical books). I wanted something more portable than the Note 10.1 and this seemed to fill the void.

    Since this product has only been out for a day (when this review was written), I’ve had a chance to play with most of the features but not all. This review is meant for those of you hanging on the fence, unsure of whether or not this tablet will work for you.

    First off, to save yourself some time, if you have no intentions of using the stylus for taking notes or modifying photos then stop reading this right now. The stylus IS the reason this tablet costs more than the competition and in my opinion it’s worth the price. Yes, there are more powerful tablets out there that are much cheaper but they don’t have a stylus! This tablet is designed for the person who likes to read/write and/or do artwork/photo-shopping. If you don’t need a stylus then you don’t need to read this review (look at other products like the Nexus 7).

    The Pros: Taking notes on this device is a dream (very precise, even for mathematicians)

    The reason i bought Galaxy Note 8.0, June 28, 2013
    By 
    animalsrush (Bartlett, IL USA) –

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I have had the Galaxy Note 8.0 for a week now and decided to share my thoughts. I come from a heavy iOS/OSX background owning Ipad3,ipad Mini and Macbook air. This is my first Android tablet . I also own a Sony Xperia Ray android phone but use it mainly as phone. I also bought Xperia Tablet Z recently and had to return due to build issues after few weeks .. I won’t get into specs or detailed reviews ( there are quite a few good ones out there) but will list out why i chose Galaxy Note 8.0

    Build : Everyone is complaining about the plastic build of Galaxy note 8. It is actually very solid and has no squeaks. The backplate gives a little when you push it. However most will use a case to put their tablets so this is a non issue. the white plastic looks classy. Also as this is plastic the Wifi and bluetooth connections are solid. I get min 4 bars even in bedroom with router in living room. Compared this to ipad mini barely went upto 2 bars. Sony Xperia Tablet z was terrible ..It dropped connections so often it was unusable . However not a big fan of where power button and vol buttons are . I would have preferred power button on top and vol button on left so when i hold tablet they don’t get pressed accidentally as this tablet is designed to be held in portrait mode. Also love the physical home button ( I think this because of habit i guess all Apple devices have them 🙂 ). This tablet also weighs as much the ipad mini and Xperia tablet Z so it is very lightweight and easy to hold in one hand for long hrs.

    Display : Even though the display is 1280×800 the display is very crisp. Movies and pictures look really great and text looks real good at decent reading distance. The display is way better than Ipad Mini but little bit lower than Xperia tablet Z which is 1080P. However i prefer the Galaxy note 8.0 display as it is easy on eyes. The colors popped so much on Xperia tablet Z it hurt my eyes. Small text ( try msn.com website) looks bit bad when you look closely . But you would never use tablet close to eyes anyways.

    Battery life : I get about 2-3 days on single charge with moderate use browsing internet, watching YouTube, some games etc. Mind you I keep brightness to 25% , Bluetooth and GPS off , app notifications off. This decent but not as good as iPad mini.

    SDXC card extension : This was the biggest sell for me. I bought a Sandisk 64 GB class 10 SD card and put about 40 movies on it and my books and i am all set for long trips. None of the ipads have the feature.

    Non Propriety port: The charge port is micro USB. So with my universal USB charger i just need to carry one cable that will allow me to charge my MP3 player, my tablet, my cell phone and my portable amp as all use micro usb port. Reduced the clutter of cables i need to carry when i travel

    Form factor : I was a big fan of Ipad mini for its form factor. I tried to use 10.1 inch tablet ( Sony Xperia Tablet Z) even though light became cumbersome after holding in hand for more than 30 mins. The 7 inch is too small , 10.1 inch too big , 8 inches just perfect for both reading books and watching movies. However i do prefer the 4:3 format of Ipad mini Vs 16:9 format of Android tablets.

    Multi tasking : This is brilliant feature and this device allows to have two applications next to each other . This is good when you want to take notes and when browsing a website or a doc . Also the performance is so good there is zero lag even with 6 applications open in background. Ipad doesn’t have true multi tasking and there was lag on Sony Xperia tablet Z even though it is high powered device. However that may be due to Sony’s bad skinning of jelly bean

    Performance/Touch Wiz : Samsung has heavily skinned jelly bean with touch wiz. However there is no lag as this tablet has gobs of power . The 2 GB RAM and quad core processor keep this humming along. I had sometimes 6 applications running in background which were cpu heavy but no lag or abrupt app closures. With Ipad mini apps sometime closed abruptly due to aggressive memory management. iOS is one of the best tuned OS and uses the HW properly . Android still needs horse power to run smoothly.

    Speakers : They are placed in the same way it is on ipad mini. I like that because when i watch movies in landscape mode the sound is more rounded as my palms cup them. The are loud but not quite as loud as Ipad mini but way better than the ones on sony Xperia Tablet Z. The sound is loud enough to hear in a noisy env. I will not use the tablet for music as i have a very good Sony mp3 player with amp .. So the speakers are only for you tube videos or movies . Mostly i will use headphones anyways

    IR blaster : IMO this is just a gimmick. The Watch on and Peel work for me only if i point my tablet at proper angle to the device it is controlling. The app has so little features. The one implemented on Sony Xperia Tablet Z is…

    Ultimate Productivity Tablet, April 20, 2013
    By 
    Kidd32

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    If what you need is a device for watching movies or TV shows on, carry around in your coat pocket, in a purse, or small backpack, this is not the device for you. If that’s your intention behind buying a small tablet, then there are better options for the price- much better bang for your buck if you must. This includes the Nexus and the slightly more expensive than the nexus but cheaper than this device Apple Ipad Mini (sorry that was a mouthful). However, if you like to or need to take notes and work in a setting where you are constantly on the move, need information quickly, have to organize information well, and increase your overall productivity – then this is the ONLY device I would personally recommend.

    As someone who is in the medical field, this device gives me the ability to take patient history notes in an organized and secure manner. While there are other great note taking programs out there, the game changer for me personally was the S-Note program with its hand/wrist discrimination feature and hand to text mode. My handwriting is absolutely terrible but it does a phenomenal job of text recognition. You cannot do this on the iPad and other android devices. In the past, I even invested in a wrist discriminating sensor thing for the iPad and that was a HORRIBLE idea. Not only can and did damage my iPad screen, it also did terrible job writing where I was actually writing. The text was always distorted above the pen contact point.

    Additionally, with this device, I was able to make a pdf template on my computer, import it into the SNote software and now use it to take patient history in a consistently organized manner. I never miss those frequently missed questions (like smoking, and packs a day, etc.). Some people have asked me why the the 8 over the 10, and the answer for me is very simple: I can’t carry around a ten inch tablet in my white coat, it’s just too big. The note fits perfectly in the inside and outside white coat pockets for men’s sizes (>36), it sticks out a tiny bit in the smaller sizes (<32). My one recommendation, however, is to get a cover because you don’t want to scratch your screen against your equipment or vice versa.

    As a student, I can use this to annotate lecture notes and Powerpoints very easily. While the software can’t import Power-point files, it’s very easy to convert them into a PDF, especially on Office 2007 and then send it to yourself or load it onto the Dropbox. I can then import the pdf into Snote and note away.

    As far as storage goes, these files aren’t very big but if you are planning on using more storage (movie’s etc.), then invest in an expandable memory. It’s one of the big advantages of this device over the Ipad mini.

    Yes it has a hefty price tag but the features are un-paralleled for productivity. However, the way I see it: you pay 300 for the premium specifications on the device, like the graphic card and processor, and another 100 for the S-pen feature. For me, it’s an investment worth making if you are using it for the right reasons.

    Battery Life: Great but depending on the frequency of use, might require charging.
    Feel: I have big hands so it fit’s pretty easily. It feels like holding note pad. If you have small hands and want to use this in a manner similar to what I do, try it at Best Buy first because I can see this being a problem for people with smaller hands. By try it, I mean really try it, pick it up and write on it for a few minutes.

    Note taking tip: The only tip I can give so far is that if you are taking notes and are getting frustrated by your wrist hitting the buttons (menu + back), flip it 180 with the camera on the bottom and the buttons on top. Works like a charm for me.

    If you have other questions, please feel free to ask. I will try to help in whatever way possible.

    Update:
    Importing tip: So this isn’t the most intuitive of things for previous ipad/iphone users but to import files or even just bring up a menu while in a program, click on the button to the right of the “home button” (the one that lights up and looks like the top of a college ruled paper). I know this seems like a stupid tip but believe me – when I was first trying to figure out how to “import” things into S-note or find how to reach the table of contents in the Kindle App, I almost lost it.

    S-pen compatibility: First thing, if you buy a new stylus, make sure you undock the previous stylus before using the new one. The new stylus will not work if you leave the old one in. Secondly, http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-S-Pen-Stylus-Holder/dp/B0076Z3GMG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1367301937&sr=8-4&keywords=S-Pen+Samsung+Galaxy+Note, that stylus feels nice but the one that I bought is slightly off calibration and the text is a few mm off. If this isn’t a big deal then go for it. However, if you are OCD, this can be really frustrating.
