This tablet is one of the lightest devices we saw, weighing only 1.1 pounds. We liked the lightweight design and it made the portability of the device increase significantly.

The 8-inch display screen wasn’t the largest screen we had seen and we wish it was a little larger. It also provided 1024 x 768 screen resolution. Although this was high-definition display, this resolution still allowed for crisp images but nothing compared to the top three products we reviewed.
