Hello fellow "Androidian" folks, I'm relatively new to this platform, but the thing that struck me the most is that the fora are filled with people who have fallen victim to one of the many pitfalls and problems given by the undependable ePads /aPads out there; or more commonly understood as "China Pads". I am one of such victims and it got me here. Yeah, so its cheap and initially seems to be too good to be true, considering the functions they boast, but also considering the time, money and effort we expend on fixing these things, which mostly come to naught, I was just wondering if we weren't better off going for the more expensive but tested and trusted branded tablets. Its true that when things seem to be too good to be true; it truly is, isn't it? My ePad unfortunately worked for about 48 hours before it just clunked out on its own. It seems to have this firmware problem which I'm yet to fix; I hoping someone would come to my rescue. Nevertheless, I see so many other people have this same problem too and a host of others, which don't usually happen with the more mainstream tablets. Leads to think and ask why these pads are so unreliable, but yet we fall victim to purchasing them, and not fully getting our money's worth! Is the problem with the pads or us and how can we help other people from slipping down this road we've unfortunate to found ourselves. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's what I've observed from hanging out on this platform. You are also welcome to share your experiences that either buttress or disprove my view. We'll let the facts judge! Yours, A regretful owner of an unusable ePad.
