Let me start by saying that I absolutely love this tablet. It’s a very smart tablet. The Gigaset QV830 tablet is so versatile that I am writing this review on it!
The fact that it is so easy to use is of great help to someone like me who has only made a short trip on the information super highway. In fact I just switched it on connected to the wireless internet and off I went.
It’s that easy to use. I quickly found the app-store and downloaded a couple of my favourite games and was immediately hooked. The Gigaset tablet was glued to me I just could never put it down.
The 8 inch screen is brilliant and very sensitive to touch you don’t have to bash it to get it to work. I also like the notifications you get at the top of the screen for example if you receive an email or a game update.
Another great feature of this fantastic tablet is that you can link it to your laptop or PC and download files from it. This can be done via the micro USB cable supplied with it.
I have installed apps like the BBC iPlayer and Sky Go on the tablet and these apps make my brilliant Gigaset tablet a little portable TV. I can watch all my favourite programmes on and the display and sound are perfect.
As I said earlier I love this fantastic tablet by Gigaset. There are other tablets in the house but I am not bothered by them when I have this smart stylish sleek device.
A brilliant piece of kit highly recommended.
