    Many apps I want to get on play store says not compatible with device. Is this due to the android version or something else?
    Has Android 4.1.1
    I try the update button but always says check network connection, yet my WiFi is good? Could the network issue due to ordering the device from china.

    Thanks

    You have multiple issues here. The first is that you have a Chinese tablet. These inexpensive tablets can't be upgraded because their companies don't provide updates. The second is that the Chinese tablet likely has the Play Store, but has not been tested by Google for compatibility. If a tablet hasn't been tested, most apps in the Play Store will show as not being compatible.

    The good news is that by rooting and changing the build.prop of the device so it is recognized as a compatible tablet, you can fix this to a great extent.
