I own an HTC One M8 running the Windows platform. I also have a laptop that runs windows. It’s nice to be able to sync this tablet with those two devices. Tablet processor (1.33 GHz) is very capable for this price point in a tablet. It lags a touch at times, but it’s not bad. For a blazing fast processor, you will need to upgrade as you would expect. The speakers are adequate for watching videos and most purposes. However, don’t plan to “bump out” to these speakers. The camera is decent, but by no means premium. This tablet has a lot of storage for the price at 32GB.

WHO IS THIS TABLET INTENDED FOR?
In a nutshell, this tablet is great for browsing the internet, checking email, watching the occasional video, reading e-books, playing light games, connecting headphones for listening to music, looking for a durable (yet inexpensive) device for their child, and checking trail/game cameras with an SD/Micro USB adapter. Another thing to note is that this does not have advertisements like some of the Amazon Fire tablets.

WHO SHOULD LOOK FOR ANOTHER TABLET?
Buyers that want the following might consider other options: a premium camera (2 MP), loud speakers for music, battery life exceeding 4-5 hours. and/or those wanting a high-end processor with no lag when multi-tasking.

CONCLUSION:
Overall, this is a great value in a tablet at an affordable price. If you meet the criteria I’ve outlined above, I think you will be very happy with this tablet. If you place a high value on some of its shortcomings, then you might consider upgrading. I hope my review was helpful to your purchasing decision!
