    After reading many reviews and threads I'm totally at a loss as to which chinese tablet to purchase, so if anyone can offer any help I would be really greatful.
    I'm looking to purchase a chinese tablet for my husband budget about $200, so that when he is away with work can skype home (very important) and kids can use it for games, videos, surf the net etc. it needs to have wifi and preferably have inbuilt 3g for when using it in the car on long journeys. Have been looking at ips screen ones and have a fairly good battery life.

    Please help

    Not sure you'll get in built 3g for that money, maybe in a smaller tab say 7/8" but nearly all support external 3g with a dongle.

    Ps I have ips, not so important on small screen. Its only viewing angle that makes it better than other capacitive screen really.

    Thanks, had been looking at http://www.amazon.co.uk/A1CS-FUSION...1_4?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1336135617&sr=1-4
    smartQ Ten 3, cube U9GT but not sure they good for skyping. Don't mind 3g broadband being external using gongle just if it was internal would be a plus. Once camera and speakers good and fast for internet browsing and downloading will be happy. I can't expect top of range for the money. Any other suggestions or advice on the above

    China brand good price model, you can consider Ainol Novo. Its quality is stable. like Ainol Aurora, it is about $160, include shipping cost.
    Onda has good reputation in China also. Onda has higher rate on products problem than Ainol Novo. The hot model is Vi10, most of the problems comes from cameras and colors. price is about $140, include shiping cost.
    You can consider Newsmy. I prefer this brand a lot.Newsmy G27, price is about $150. include shipping cost.
    All these three brand price meet your expectations. all 7inch. If you want bigger screen, you can consider Zenithink C91 and Newsmy K97.
    cube U9GT is popular recently. I wouldn't like to recommend it for some unhappy experience. You can consider it also.

    I would not go with the Cube it is slow, was fast for two days, then slowed way down. It has flaws and would not make a suitable tablet if you need it for work, or for more stable use. OndaVi30 and Vi40 gets good reviews, and somewhat the Ainol Nova 7. The Hyundai S800 gets very good reviews and is under $200. Look on *************** which is a reputable Chinese Import site, free shipping and great prices. I have no idea about their return policies. I would not give too much weight to their reviews as they could have been faked. Good Luck

    Almost all the tablet out there can meet your requirements (or at least claim to meet you requirements - I don’t know a tablet with a good battery from China or for that matter from anywhere in the world :))

    The real differentiator is the need for built-in 3G. This will add cost but is really convenient when on the move. Most of the tablet suggested need an external modem. If you want 3G built-in you might consider KDpad w1107 (7”) or Dapeng A7 (5”). Both lovely tablets and they should be available at a price close to 200 USD.

    If you got the Original U30GT CUBE this wouldn't happen it sounds to me you had a copied one. Also not everything from HK or China is fake most of the brand name IPads and batteries are made in China. here is a link.

    My
    advice would be read and search everything before you buy any Chinese tablets also read the small print on returns and shippments if you buy on ebay you can email the dealer for more information on the tablet also ask for the company website some have English.

    Hi,
    My advice is probably not to buy a chinese tablet, i have had a Onda Vi40 for about 3 months at first i thought it was great but Im afraid it is just a piece of junk with little to no back up
    I have now had that many problems with it and spent so many wasted hours trying to sort it out I would have been better off just spending more and buying a reputable brand.
    I was warned but didnt listen!
    Sooooooo listen lol.

    Agree fully.

    China tablets are made for and sold to the China mainland and initially, little effort was made to facilitate the high standards found in the pro western units. The first batch of them were very basic with most working functions, but mainly lacked access to the Google play store. This is so because the Chinese has they own variation of the play store and would not need its access. There are literally hundreds of tablet brands in China and 99% of them still takes this approach. The exceptions are the brands that are now being pushed to the overseas market, for example Onda, SmartQ and Ainol. These manufacturers have recognized the value of accessing the foreign markets and are now including the Google Play in their programming. Some has gone a step further and has developed two distinctly different firmwares, one for their base market, China, and the other for the West; English based and Chinese apps removed.

    China brand tablets are much less expensive than the reconized brands and there will always be the attraction to buy a cheaper product. But buyers should be aware that the old maxin still holds true. If you pay cheap...You get cheap. While it is true that some of the better known brands are making an attempt to improve their quality standards, for example SmartQ and Aoson, don't be fool into thinking that you will buy the cheapest product you can find because it has good specs and still expect to get a product the like of Toshiba or Samsung. Additional, since these same units were not optimized for the foreign markets, you can also expect to do a lot of tinkering with the OS to get the most out of your unit.

    I have owned seven China brand tablets in the past year and because I have realistic expectations, I have not been disappointed with any. And yes, they all still works.
