I ordered two of these seeing as the techy nerds suggested it. Specs are amazing and that sd slot. Plus that price. I hear it's better than the N7 and the Samsung 7.

The CPU and GPU are on point, but the display is utter trash. 480p resolution on a 7" screen, no thanks.

I'll take the 8", 720p screen for 12 more bucks.

That 480p screen on the S1 though.

Bad points

home screen only landscape
itv player and Netflix only portrait
apparently we filled up the desktop after downloading the 20 or so apps we test
the screen resolution is poor making the tablet look and feel a bit cheap
the resolution also stretches the contents, either making it wider (landscape) or taller (portrait)



On the plus side the tablet beats the Cube U9GT4 (similarly spec’d and designed); the screen is at least rotated in the most user friendly orientation (landscape), although as mentioned it can’t be rotated and some apps default to portrait and can’t be changed, annoying! However it’s not running an Android phone OS like the U9GT4.
The compatibility is good, beating most of our tablets. Twitter and ITV Player apps work so no need to go to the websites. The hardware kept up with our tasks well and the animated backgrounds look cool.

In summary the tablet is good, but it is fairly transparent after using it for a half hour that Pipo intends the S1 to be a e-book reader or mini smart pad, rather than a full android tablet. It is much better spec’d than Cubes’ version though, with HDMI out and a proper charger jack. It’s also cheaper.

If you want a high spec 7inch and can live with the display software issues then there’s no reason to buy anything else really.

I believe that "no rotation" can be fixed with a custom rom and/or launcher replacement


Pipo ain't got an S_ that actually has a resolution of 720p??


I'd be more pressed if I didn't get this Kindle Fire HD for free but, outside of poor quality (and trying to find an offbrand case for this) I wouldn't be too mad getting it and transforming it.



Actually...
