Inspect A Gadget

When Money Supermarket announced their Inspect A Gadget challenge I was really excited to get involved, as I'm going away this summer, and receiving a new gadget to take away with me sounded like the ideal opportunity to try out a new toy.

Once, I'd received the dispatch email, and read the estimated date for delivery. My heart sank. It was three weeks. Three weeks to wait for my new gadget?!? But, nevertheless when this parcel arrived on my doorstep I was so excited, and couldn't wait to start using it.

As most of you'll already know I love my iPod touch. It's a fab piece of technology, but it is on the pricer side. And at the moment I really can't justify spending the money on an iPad, so I was really intrigued to see how this operated in comparison.

The Inspect A Gadget challenge is all about finding the best gadget for under £50. This tablet costs around £38 including shipping, which is a definite bargain!

Now, I think it's best to be completely honest with you all. It's great, don't get me wrong, but it is quite slow and unresponsive sometimes.

I've downloaded Candy Crush on this, as well as Temple Run 2 and Minion Rush. They all work perfectly and are definitely great time wasters. This tablet has a front facing camera, which is great for beachside selfies. Which I wasn't expecting this tablet to have, considering the mere price tag.

The internet on this is okay, and this runs an android operating system, which unfortunately, currently doesn't support Instagram.

Overall, I'm quite impressed by this tablet, although if you were considering an android tablet or an iPad, I think I'd be swayed towards Apple's offering.

Have you got any app recommendations?
Did you take part in this challenge?
