D This solves a problem discussed in the thread yesterday. Alternatively, might give the Aldi job a few days, as their return policy is better. I did Tablet an article describing similar symptoms on a HTC phone, but the latest Play Store update Bauhn supposed to fix it, but it hasn’t helped. Just put mine back on charge. You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures. Indonesia initial config, I turned up one interesting thing, the tablet is using Useable AOSP keyboard by default. Yeah I thought I had but couldn’t see it, thanks, have now adjusted.

Running apps from SD chip is simple, so yes, you really do have 20GB available straight out of the box. Just that now, at first, it’s not easy to be instantly used to. Similarly with a compass App — should the needle point to geographical N or simply indicate N? I have the previous 9. Those Y cables were needed as standard single USB ports do not supply enough current. OS ROMs are very device specific. I just copied them, no conversion and left them in the toppy format ie copied from Topfield to my PC then from PC to the tablet — I’ve got absolutely no idea about conversion lol.

She rang support, and the standard SIM is apparently the correct one, but she punched out and inserted the smaller one, and now it is stuck. Ad2, The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC!

There is a subtitle setting in MX player Careful with that Jaycar OTG cable. I have one — and the connection into the tablet is right angled. Immediately adjacent my micro USB port, I have a power connection and on the other side a headphones connection.

My plan was to load Youtube vids on the USB stick and watch them using earphones. However I am finding that with the right angled usb connector, I cant plug the usb cable and the headphones in at the same time.

I will need a straight USB cable. The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC! Aint that the truth. Took me more than 12 continuous hours to copy the video files from my toppy to my PC although admittedly I noticed a connection problem at one point but don’t know how long it was hung-up.

Thanks for the heads-up about the subtitle extraction file. I’ll have a new look at the toppy forum and give it a go if the forum is up lol. From my first impressions, the tablet is pretty decent value.

The tablet will probably suit a lot of people. Is this rooted not in android meaning will return but maybe none left. Hope you can find a straight cable connection. It should have showed the charging indicator but just a thought, did you hold the power button in for at least 3sec on startup.

Thanks for the warning Baz. As someone mentioned before me, mine also is mainly for sitting in the chair rugged up on a winters night browsing the internet or playing internet games. This is using my house wireless connection.

I’ve also configured my phone android and my wife’s iPhone4 as an access point and just went out of range of my house connection and the connections thru the phones work great.

No need for a SIM in the Aldi as yet. Just had a quick play. Sound is horrible, I couldn’t bare it without headphones, but the kids might be able to tolerate it. First tablet for us well, except for my OptusTab which was horrible, and the first thing I noticed was the weight.

Might be too heavy for a 4 and 6yo, but depends on where they use it I guess. Probably not an Aldi problem, maybe just a Did anyone get the accessory pack? I’m a bit worried about the kids using it without a cover, in case I want to make use of the 60 day return period.

I legitimately need the kids to try this for a few days to see if they would be better with a 7″ form factor. Keen to hear a review. Perhaps you are not holding the power button in for long enough.

You need to hold it in for several seconds before letting it go. Nothing spectacular, but I would prefer to have it than not have it as the tablet is a bit slippery and it does offer some protection, plus you can tke it back with the tablet if necessary.

Given my kids don’t need 3G, and a 7″ might be a better size for them, would a Nexus 7 or Galaxy Tab 2 7″ be a better option? How do they compare on a performance front? I seem to be having problems with my tablet also.

First Android machine so hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. Trying to turn on Wi-Fi — I assume I should be able to connect to netgear router both 2. I am standing next to router??

Is it a dud or me? I doubt that that unit would have much charge in it after only 4 hours charging with a USB connector. When mine is fully charged, and I am in my camperbus, I use a 12V Cig lighter plug to Micro USB when using the tablet and the tablet draws enough then to retain charge while in use.

Charging from a USB cable is painfully slow with any device bigger than a phone. The v way is a much better option if your device needs a big charge. As far as screen size goes, my grandson manages okay with a 9.

It is big but he copes quite well and much better than on his mum’s iPhone. Compare it to something like the Nexus 7. It’s cpu and Graphics blow this aldi tablet away, it is 7inch, not 10 inch however it has the same resolution as aldi tablet because it’s a higher quality screen.

It is really lacking GPU wise with both 2d and 3d graphics. It’s cpu not great but not such a problem. It will only see the internal 2Gb partition. I’m starting to suspect my thought that having no hard home or back buttons would be a PITA.

Some apps already I have to go through multiple stages just to get back to the home screen. Am I missing something, or is this something that we’ll just have to endure? Bit hard to understand your problem.

You can manipulate these buttons to do different things — with either short presses or long presses. It is reasonably self explanatory once you realise about the short and long presses.

Android was a real “mystery” for me at first — but I am happy with it now. I had the same behaviour with some apps, on my phone and my old tablet. Haven’t, yet, installed Dolphin Browser, as I need to nuke stuff I copied to that damned 2Gb partition.

To fast exit Dolphin, you have to press and hold the back button, which brings up the Exit Menu for the app. The popup action menu for the tablet in Windows Explorer only shows actions for the 2Gb partition.

Bloody MS nearly giving me a heart attack. So far i found that mhl doesnt work. Standard otg cable works. It can charge via micro usb port. Screen is not ips. I have found that Apps have been the hardest thing to cope with in Android.

NONE of them come with any kind of instructions how to use the App — it is all a matter of trial and error. Some apps will have a small icon with three vertical dots somewhere — this is usually important when long pressed for various reasons — Some have a row of icons along the top of the App with no readily apparent indication of their function.

I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface ie not connected to a Windows computer. I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface.

I find ES explorer app best for this. Let’s you connect to your home network too. I stream shows from my nas and watch them over the home network. Is there any way to disable Gmail?

These are for the kids, and I’ve added my account to install some apps I’ve paid for, but I don’t want the kids messing with my email. I asked this early in the thread with no response.

This is a likely alternative for me if I return the Aldi tab. I don’t think so — but others here will advise further. Set up a dummy gmail account eg. Hiya, I am getting no GPS either..

This could be a major problem for me. Not impressed I’m wondering if it would be any different having a simcard in? Wondering if it has a GPS at all at this stage, although if it didnt I suspect that the settings would be inaccessable.

I’mm email bauhn later. I cannot seem to find any setting for that Care to enlighten me as to what it is and where i turn it on? I use “APP lock” from the play store it puts a pin lock on any app you specify, I find it very handy.

Settings — Location access only has 3 options: Access to my location — switch on or off. Happy with mine so far. Bought it for my kids as they have a crappy pendo pad 7inch and keep taking my Xoom.

Being that they are 4 and 2 they aren’t going to notice subpar GPU. Thinner and little lighter than the Xoom, but has a bigger bezel so it doesn’t fit in my Xoom case. On the upside when the kids aren’t using it I now have a Check out the link for a pic of it in action.

More than happy with mine. Great tablet for browsing the web and getting some work done. Would recommend this if this is your first tablet like me, easy to pickup and master.

Click on your gmail account and the Google links that are able to be syncronised are shown, with a tick beside those being synced. Untick Gmail and that’s it. I picked up one of these today.

Typing this on it. The only thing that annoys me me are the keyboard clicks, does anyone know how to turn them off? I bought the Bauhn today and asked for a SIM. They should be here tomorrow.

My first complaint is that the charger wall wart has a pair of “wings” which unnecessarily widen its footprint and prevent another device sharing the double power point here. If I decide to keep it I’ll have to chisel one wing off.

Bought one today and I’m typing this on it with SwiftKey and Firefox. Everything has gone smoothly and everything works as advertised. Charging via the supplied adaptor is fine, probably hours to full charge.

Running apps from SD chip is simple, so yes, you really do have 20GB available straight out of the box. The unit comes with a nice clean Jelly Bean install, which is a refreshing change from the likes of Samsung, Sony, LG etc, who load up their units with non-removable bloated crap.

The quad-core processor is really great and apps run smoothly even when multitasking. The screen certainly ain’t no retina resolution but what do you expect for this price?

It’s good enough and unless you go out of your way to be picky you won’t even notice. Games run smoothly, network works fine, bluetooth is fine, audio is fine if you use external speakers.

Sure the internal speaker is much like a laptop but what do you expect? Watching movies with MX is a pleasant experience especially with those external speakers UNLESS you try and play x which will lead to a hopeless scenario of frozen frames.

Also some hi-def YouTube clips will also drop frames such as Gangnam Style. Clearly the graphics hardware is not up to hires movies, so if that’s what you need you’d better look elsewhere.

I haven’t tried the camera under All conditions yet but I have fiddled with all the settings and it appears that the camera on this unit is VERY poor. So poor in fact that I will not be using it.

But that’s ok for me, I bought a display device, not a camera. I’ve got plenty of those already. If you need a tablet with a decent camera you’d better look elsewhere. USB interface to the SD chip was effortless.

The only caveat being that the chip is partitioned, so you need to navigate up to the root and select the correct partition. This is simple to do and I had no trouble downloading 14GB of songs, books, comics, movies etc from my desktop.

I installed numerous apps of course and there was no problem there. This tablet is a great bargain! And don’t forget it comes with 3G limited to Telstra and resellers like Aldi.

It does what I need it for and it does it well. If you want to surf the net and fire off a few emails while watching the TV, or check your Facebook and play words with friends over a coffee, or watch a medium res movie or some YouTube in bed, or read a book on a tram, then this unit is for you.

If you like spending double for the sake of it then go visit your Apple store. When next posting, please use the paragraph key Hi all, could we get a roll call as to GPS working or not please.

Seems there is some working an some not. I will email bauhn with this info. Hunted Google for the info, and learned that Jelly Bean expects widgets to be installed to internal memory.

I’d earlier set the install location to the SD card. So the widget had been installed there. I use Optus and their resellers such as iinet. Can this lock be removed? GPS not working at all like the rest of you guys, guide frustrating.

Just another note to say I have mailed bauhn with the details of the GPS problem and links to this forum, when they reply I will post here. Here’s hoping they reply publicly. Keep replies coming as to whether you GPS is working or not please.

Thanks for that one Greg. I’ll send them an email as well. Everyone in this thread with GPS probs should do the same really. Got mine yesterday as well as the accessory pack.

It’s an alright tablet, nothing outstanding, but about what I would expect for the price. Screen is OK, not great. It will be fine for basic web browsing and everything, but if you want high def images and deep colour it will disappoint.

Cameras are not worth mentioning. Both are pretty poor quality. For anything other than basic Skype or internet chat they aren’t worth using. Browser runs smoothly without much lag.

Occasionally some lag, but nothing too bad. Gets decent signal and speed. Not the strongest signal, but not horrendous either. I haven’t tried any games yet, but I don’t expect it will be the greatest gaming machine.

Internal storage is a bit annoying. No idea why they partitioned it like they have. Could make it annoying with apps and whatnot. Location does not work. No matter what Location settings are turned on, it does not find location.

Just keeps giving an error saying the location could not be determined. All up, Not a bad device, but not stellar either. I am tossing up on whether to return mine or not.

While it will be fine for Web browsing, the low quality screen, issues with Video playback one of the main uses of mine, camera, and location services mean it is not fully functional for me.

I will give it another couple of days and then decide what to do, but I am leaning toward returning it. Just tested it with ‘GPS Status’. By the window it can find 2 satellites not enough for a fix but in the room it can’t find anything.

Put a Nexus 7 in the same spot and it gets a fix in a few seconds, and 10 satellites shortly after. However, I am seeing reduced performance on the N7 when put next to the running Aldi tablet.

Therefore I suspect RF interference of some kind preventing it from seeing all but the strongest signals. However, my microphone does not appear to be working. When I make a phone call, all that’s heard at the other end is crackly noise, when I mute it the other end goes blank.

However, if I plug in headphones with a mic in them they work fine. I can’t find any setting other than dual microphone which doesn’t change the result. Otherwise I am very happy with the tab.

The pad is pretty responsive and reasonably fast. I am not worried about HD video or gaming don’t do latter, this is just a cheap adjunct to my touchscreen WIN8 laptop which is my portable working tool.

This is really just for lounging around at home or elsewhere surfing the web, making calls, messaging etc and light duties like that. Good to throw in the pannier when touring on my motorbike replaces my sluggish netbook.

I wasn’t interested in spending much on a pad as it is just a toy with limited uses to me, so this fits the bill nicely — if the mic worked! Thanks Jennifur, the numbers didnt mean anything to me and I didnt realise the limitations of the Optus network.

Please, can somebody more knowledgeable provide some advice. I’m tempted to go buy a Galaxy Tab to physically compare, but not sure if anyone selling the Galaxy Tab is as good with returns as Aldi, if indeed I decide to keep the Bauhn.

Although the galaxy tab 2 is a dual-core tegra-2, I reckon it beats the quad-core qualcomm in the Aldi tablet. So, my guess is that on single-core speed, the Samsung will beat the Aldi. Dual or quad configruation does not make too much of a difference in overall performance, in my opinion.

The graphics GPU might also be better in the samsung can someone confirm that? I notice Officeworks have a pretty good return policy, so might grab one on the way home and compare them side-by-side.

Its in the menu under tools. My gps is still spotty, will pick up some sats outside but with VERY low strength. Compared to my SGS3 which gets more than double the number of sats and in less than 15 seconds.

Is it necessary to get a separate app. Anyone tried BS player yet? I have an N10 and that seems the only player to do a good job on p. Yes, do that please and let me know how the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 performs.

That 16GB built-in is tempting. My Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite is really annoying me. The available memory keeps reducing despite me not adding new apps. Tired of having to reset to factory and re-installing everything once in a while.

Done that 4 times since January. LOL — you may recall the GHz war with single core CPU’s in PC’s with ever climbing speeds — and then the dual core happened and suddenly the speed was much less important.

Believe me multiple cores DO make a difference when working hard — I have several Quad core tablets here and won’t be going back to dual core’s, let alone single core ones by choice.

GPS has come good on mine. Had the device on this morning, with backlight set to never time out, as I was installing the apps I regard as must haves on any Android device I own.

My tablet has been on, for about 3 hours straight. Just put mine back on charge. Battery was down to 14 percent, from starting at 75 percent this morning. So, for non-stop use, I think maybe 4 hours all told.

The previous aldi-tab had this issue as well, not even able to use wifi to locate itself skyhook database. When it works normally, it will download relevant information to lock within a matter of seconds.

So no one has a solution to the GPS as yet? It sucks that maps don’t work even with data: Reading that stuff last night, my opinion was that it was a load of garbage.

This morning, however, that constant on solve is precisely what worked. So it might be worth a shot. I had turned all the location stuff to on this morning before doing anything, and just left them on despite not doing any actual GPS stuff till I ran GPS Test.

Actually, they are around the same when it comes to performance. The Tegra 2 has an edge when it comes to GPU performance but it’s negligible. FYI, that’s what I ended up with after returning the Bauhn.

You are absolutely right, multiple cores do make a difference “when you are working hard AND if the applications make efficient usage of a multi-core architecture”. I doubt if a tablet is ever going to be used that hard.

Only if that single app makes proper use of the multi-core architecture, then you will benefit from it. Like games and graphics apps will probably benefit from that, but may benefit even more with a proper GPU.

Quad core is a nice marketing term, but only of interest for heavy apps, like 3d gaming to which this Aldi tablet is certainly not tailored for, seeing the poor graphics performance. As already said before, the Aldi tablet is a nice tablet just as long as you do not expect high-performance.

Recently in country Vic it either worked on or switched to 2G and she didn’t notice. So I’d say is enough for Optus unless you live in a small country town or rural. I don’t know what Optus’s “dual band roll-out” means for possible withdrawal of service but I’d guess that there isn’t enough bandwidth in most urban areas to withdraw leaving only and it would lose only customers as well.

However, you might well find a hole in metro coverage that is missed by but not by Where I used to live 10km from Melb CBD used to be in a Voda hole as every 2nd tradie who came to the house discovered.

I was playing Real Racing 3 last night on it. So does that mean if you put in a 32GB card it then becomes a 36GB tablet, if so then thats an extra bonus as well. Its actually only using the internal 2GB partition, not the external SD card.

So its limited to 2GB until someone roots it and stuffs around with it some more.. No that’s not true.. You can set where you want apps to be installed on SD card if you wish, You can move most apps that have already been installed on internal storage to SD card and you can set the default storage to be the SD card.

Anyone tell me why I get spell check with GMail and not messaging.. I thought this was standard with Android? It sounds like a dumb gps, that can’t contact wifi towers, phone towers or get satellite info via internet data.

To test if the gps is really fixed you would turn gps off, travel a number of km’s then turn on again. If it locks fast again then it really did fix it. Maybe Aldi has implemented a new version of Android that allows people to install their apps anywhere they like When you copy a movie or show it will result in 3 files showing up on your PC with the same name but different file extensions.

I also opened another folder to show the movies on my PC hard drive. I then created a new sub-folder in my PC folder imaginatively called “movies” but left it empty. Then I dragged and dropped the ‘movies folder across into the SD card folder.

So now I had 3 sub-folders in my SD card folder. Then I dragged and dropped the 3 files for each movie from the PC hard drive across into my ‘movies’ sub-folder in the tablet.

Had no problem with movie transfer and playback. There you go, my biggest was 3. I will try an over 4GB file when I can to test how it goes. Yep sdcard0 os the sd card it’s using.

That’s the 2GB partition. Sdcard1 is the external card, it’s not using that. It’s partly why google took the SD card out of android, too difficult for people to manage memory. Won’t be able to give that idea for a test, a go till next week.

More thorough testing is always good. Other stuff, I’ve done a bit of trying out the BT on the tablet. I paired the BT speaker stand with the tablet, very mediocre sound. I also paired my Plantronics Pulsar BT headset with the tablet.

No problems with using the A2DP headset controls to run the media players. I need to figure out how to stop the tablet immediately searching for already paired devices as soon as the BT is switched on.

True, and it probably should be in the Accessories pack as a bit of value-add. Is the cover which comes in the accessories pack any good? Any suggestion for an alternative cover? I got an OTG cable: The blue light on the portable HDD is flashing so it looks like it is okay.

I have tapped on the “File Explorer” app which brings up a list of 13 folders. I’ve tapped on many of them but can’t find the portable drive or its contents: I’ve gone into ‘settings’ then ‘storage’ but cannot see the portable HDD listed only can see internal storage and device storage and SD card.

It’s ok, nothing brilliant though. My cover, for some reason bows outwards over the hole for the front facing camera. Also, I can’t convince the tablet to sit squarely in the cover, it’s always at a slight angle.

That makes it off centre for the front facing camera. Sorry not the situation here, Using the default file explorer I see sdcard0 has my movies and photos and has currently If you can use a usb stick first and see files on it, your problem is the amount of power to the drive.

I see sdcard0 has my movies and photos and has currently What is the user tree and where is it found? My portable HDD is self-powered no external power needed and it just has the one usb cable connection to plug into the PC usb port.

I have also tried connecting some 8GB and 64GB stick usb drives but they are not showing up either. I did ring bauhn and they said as soon as I plug the usb stick in it should automatically open a window on the tablet — but not on mine lol.

You will then be able to move apps from internal memory to the 16GB SD card. This is confirmed by going into the Manage Apps option. Although it works fine on a Nexus Google maps find the location but when opening Google Earth it says “finding location” and just hangs forever.

Looks like that might be the problem. After shutting the tablet down and then trying my old usb sticks, they work. Oh well, will just have to transfer as much data as I can to my old usb sticks — but at least it is now solved: How did you manage to convince it to swap around the internal and external SD cards?

You can then check what apps are on the external card by You cannot move all the existing apps but from a quick fiddle I moved facebook, twitter, skype, Aldi.. Possibly more but have run out of time today..

Ask around and see if anyone has a usb y power cable and try it out. It sounds like your HDD needs to be in fat32 format to work also. Also tried some gyro calibration apps, I’m out 18 degrees when in portrait but spot on in landscape, can only calibrate when specific app open, not the actual tablets calibration.

PS my GPS locked straight away. Sdcard1 is the external card,. If the internal memory is divided into 2Gb for the OS, sdcard0, then the remaining 2GB would be sdcard1, and the 16GB external card would be sdcard2 logically?

Could I suggest that perhaps people who think they are installing apps to the external card are in fact installing them to the second partition called sdcard1. I am more then happy to be wrong though, so could someone test this by installing a few app’s to make it’s not a app that is designed to do so to the ‘external’ card and then after checking the app’s work, remove the card and see if it they still work.

If it still works then its not on the external card. If it does indeed do this, then Aldi have achieved something that the other makers have failed to do, a major coop.

Thanks very much Grumpyman and Peter. D This solves a problem discussed in the thread yesterday. Only nuisance for me is that I have to uninstall everything I downloaded and installed on my tablet today, before doing that swap, as I had set the install location to Install to SD.

Could you have moved them back to Internal Storage first, then changed the setting and rebooted, and moved them again? Curious as I will want to do this too at some stage..

Hi, I’ve been following this thread, bought the Tab yesterday, enjoying it mostly. I got tired of waiting for the update to BB10 which would give us Skype supposedly, so when the Aldi tablet came up cheaply I thought I’d give it a go.

Native Words with Friends is way better than the side loaded buggy playbook version Has anyone worked out a way to get flash player onto it? The top front bit sticks outand partially obscures the front camera.

I’m currently using an old laptop stand which I can height adjust, much better for typing Colours are quite badly washed out compared with the playbook, maybe I can adjust the settings a bit better.

Some applications and resources in original SD card may can not be used, and system will reboot immediately, are you sure? If it is still support from Tempo Australia, you might get someone contact you next month.

They have been very poor with previous ones. Straight GPS works if I go outside, but the tablet can not use the wifi or mobile network to get my location regardless of what I do.

Last resort was a factory reset, but nada: Any news from buahn on GPS? Tried the 7 hour fix but still not working. I couldn’t get a fix when indoor, but thanks to JeneSlunk’s suggestion I managed to solve it by running GPS Test apk even the free ver.

I suggest you give it a go. Yep too bad its not configured this way out of the box, could solve a few peoples problems.. Now I have to move everything back to the tablet and then back to the external SD card..

But since i only have about meg internal free and have 1. I’m in a similar spot, storage wise, so I figured it’d be simpler and safer to clean things up first, then do the location swap, then reinstall everything.

Aldi have yet to discover Tasmania, for something like this I’m almost half tempted to see if anyone’s up for a mission: I run the app till about 5,6 satellites are ‘seen’ then open the Google map app and my location is fixed when previously ‘ temporarily unavailable’.

I’ve been following this thread while playing with my tablet and trying to solve the same issues as most of people here — GPS not working, swapping storage, etc. I don’t really need 3G — I can use my Galaxy Nexus to make calls and I can setup wi-fi hotspot from my phone if I’m not in wi-fi zone.

I think it may also have better sound comparing to Bauhn. Has anyone compared those 2 tables before? Stock maps or a other gps app? Also, whenever you go to do it now does it work? I just tested it again with both stock Maps and Navigation apps, and they both work, no problems.

Of course I did turn on all options under Location access first. The GPS works fine for me outside, but once I’m indoors it loses it’s signal and since assisted GPS is broken, it can no longer determine my location.

Google also tells me to switch on assisted GPS when it is already on, so there is something screwy going on. I have another one of these in the box at home so will test it as well and if no good will return both of the devices if there is no other fix: When you left it for minutes was it running maps or a thrid party gps app?

Do I need to do it, if so, how to go about it? Barrey re video and voice recording, yes to both I know there isn’t an app yet for android I’m thinking of getting one to compare for a day or 2.

Officeworks seem to have a pretty good return policy. I might drop down tonight and investigate further. Alternatively, might give the Aldi job a few days, as their return policy is better.

When it comes to GPS and location services, both tablets I purchased are behaving in the same manner i. This will be a show stopper for some, but not an issue for others. I hope it is software related and can be resolved, otherwise it’s back to the store for these babies I found I can reproduce the error by trying to use google Now After google search has updated..

I can fix it temporarily by resetting the tablet.. Have a look at Dolphin Browser Beta. Supposed to support Flash, if your CPU is supported. Here are the specs. Believe it or not I put them side by side and press the power button same time.

The Dual core loads before the Quadcore. Quadcore is smaller than dual core even know screen is bigger. Quadcore still boots slower. Could not find a video player to play movies Quadcore screen x I tried to play and p video So much for HD screen.

Only good for photos. Quadcore power button feels loose and flimsy. Quadcore charges from AC power with special connector. No longer available for sale. Some buyers quote issues with Dual core tablet My advice use for less than 2 months Conclusion I will return quadcore tablet for a refund and believe Dual core model is better in my opinion in build quality.

I’ve been following this thread with interest I have the previous bauhn dual-core tablet and have been very happy with it, but was considering updating to the quad core, however, I think I’ll stick with my 9.

Even the dual core will play full HD mp4 files x smoothly, but only if you use the correct movie-player app: However, Moboplayer works fine. Might be worth trying for those of you with the new tablet who want smooth Full HD video playback.

Not sure about this particular aldi tablet but my suggestions will still work for most android Jelly bean 4. GPS relies solely on satellite reception, takes longer to get a fix and works better outdoors.

It appears that Assisted GPS is not working at all on these devices whether it be software or hardware related, Google location services does not seems to acknowledge that it it enabled.

Done the clean up and the storage location swap, then I decided to also do a Factory Reset. Learned something useful and new. I bought this tablet hoping for a better product than the old one.

But what I’ve found: Colours are terrible and bland. I think I might actually prefer looking at the old tablet screen, at lower resolution! Just like the older tablet.

Whereas the old aldi tablet can handle it. The only improvements on the old tablet that I can see, are as follows: Tested GPS for the first time. Turned it on and went outside.

It locked on in under 20s. Pretty happy with it. I am looking forward to trying this in the morning, right now the cat is on my lap and the Tablet is on the charger in another room ;.

Hi all, my first post here so hope I do it right. I returned this tab today as I found it very laggy. But I did manage to get flash working, as posted above I downloaded from same address and installed on Firefox.

Also under display, bright there is an extra setting to make the screen more vivid. I have the previous 9. Bought one today, first tablet but I do have an android phone. I find it very laggy, scrolling is painfully slow, especially in Chrome — less so in stock browser — and also for google drive documents.

GPS is not working as yet been turned on for like 10 hours. Phone does not work in portrait mode, flips over to landscape not that I have a sim in it but more bugs. The screen is pretty unimpressive, but hey it is cheap!.

All in all, you get what you pay for. The scrolling is what kills me, funny hardly anyone else has mentioned it. Thanks to everyone for all the very helpful info on all the bugs in this thing, i got this mostly to run 4wd mapping software, managed to get the gps to work after leaving it on for a few hours then running gps test, it worked but only picked half the satellites my sg11 picked up running the same software then i lost them when i went inside, not quite the reliability i want when in the middle of nowhere.

Was going to keep it for the kids but they can’t even watch their favourite you tube clips on it. Think i’ll take it back, save a few more dollars and get a sumsung. Thanks again for all the helpful suggestions.

Just bought one today. The following may all be operator error whilst I learn how to use it but I have found it slow to update pages like FB, slow to log onto various web pages often get a timed out server message and worst of all I have major issues with the scrolling.

It is very jerky at times and sometimes won’t scroll at all. Both of these scenarios are totally different to my Galaxy phone which is very smooth in operation. I am using it via wifi with my cable modem wifi setup.

I assume that when I am out and about it will piggy back off my phones Bluetooth but am only guessing. I know I have only given vague and non technical descriptions but is there anyone that can suggest ideas to fix these issues I have.

Should I just bite the bullet and return it 60 days grace period and buy something more expensive and hopefully better. Would a galaxy tablet be a better choice and hopefully scroll as nicely as the phone.

I really thought it was. I hope Bauhn have a fix. Is these anyone in Brisbane who is tech savy and could meet up for a coffee and have a look at mine and maybe solve my issues.

Like I mentioned in my post a couple above I am concerned that some of my issues may be novice operator error. Mine does that same. Not happy with the cover although you do get a car charger.

If I returned the cover could I still charge the tablet in the car by using my phone charge cable 1 end into the USB charger and the other into the micro usb socket. I don’t want to make phone calls.

I can only assume that you all have sim cards installed and an active phone account?? It’s my first tablet but got android phone so many features are similar, GPS working.

I am leaving on Sunday for backpacking trip to Europe and would like use the tablet as mobile occasionally while over there. Could anyone describe step by step how to insert the card? Exactly what I had, as per my post back on Wednesday night: I have a Telstra NextG sim in mine.

No GPS lock at all. Can’t see ANY satellites. I’m doing the sit and wait for GPS to come good on mine at the moment, as that is what worked yesterday morning. Just have to wait and see and hope it comes good.

Today 6th June we bought 3 more with hopes of taking 2 to our next week Bali holiday. Ironically, at the checkout, a tablet was being scanned to be returned by another customer.

Well today, about an hour after getting the second batch of tablets home, the first one failed. The screen flickered in the app store. After getting back to the home screen, the flickering stopped.

After about 2 minutes, an alarm message come up not sure what it was as it disappeared after a second or 2 and then the screen shut down. Not possible to turn on at all, or reset or anything DEAD after bringing it home 24 hours later.

Then tonight, after using one of the new batch of 3 for about 5 hours, it did the same thing. You only remove it as the mini SIM. You only need to remove it as a mini SIM from the card. The back of the tablet shows you which way the mini SIM has to be, for slotting into the tablet.

Slide the SIM into the slot, then press it in till you feel it click into place. It’s a spring loaded slot, similar to what is used for microSD slots. This will be problematic, as the tablet only supports Australian cellphone frequencies.

It was never designed to support global cellphone frequencies. I think you’ll have to get a cheap cellphone and prepaid SIM once you’re over in Europe. Folks on the Travel lounge on Whirlpool might be better able to advise you.

Assisted gps doesn’t need a 3g data connection. It just needs a data connection to retrieve satellite, wifi and phone tower information. I always configure gps-a to always use 3g data as logically when you’re likely to want gps you’re going to be in a mobile situation and not hanging around a wifi hotspot Is that the problem with the tablet, it doesn’t default to active data [usually wifi] instead it defaults to 3g?

Not such a big deal, I still might buy one. Still plenty in my local aldi. You did look at the battery level icon in the bottom right of the screen, because, to me, it sounds like you fully drained the initial charge, and the tablets simply shut down.

These tablets take several hours to recharge, best to do that overnight. As mine is new Wednesday purchase, same as your first one I am running it through a few full charge cycles.

Discharging mine down to the warning level 15 percent, then full recharge. I always configure gps-a to always use 3g data. If the A-GPS is set correctly does this mean that you should be able to get some inaccurate location information even with the GPS off?

Is there anywhere to check if A-GPS is working? Similarly with a compass App — should the needle point to geographical N or simply indicate N? Or– for those who are having trouble with GPS — are you connected to the Internet in any way, either via 3G or wifi for the initial fix??

So it’s not a matter of having a SIM card inserted, as mine has always had one in it and still doesn’t work. I had both, the quad core is definitely better then the last one.

The last one is only dual core 1ghz, this one does do at least 1. Menu transitions are much faster on this quad core unit. The older tab is better for web surfing but bit grainy, newer tab is better for movies in widescreen.

Boot times are largely irrelevant. My iPad takes longer then both these tabs to boot, I assure you, it’s much faster and more expensive then both these tabs combined. Given they more often go into standby then shutdown, most people won’t care.

Build wise, the previous model is a bit bulkier and resembles that of an iPad 1. It’s actually bulkier then the first 2 tabs Aldo released. The last tab had a very specific micro USB cable with a longer connector then most normal cables I have lying around.

This in itself could prove to be an issue as not many of those cables are readily available. GPU wise, it does seem the quad core is a bit better then the last model. The last model couldn’t even play Simpsons tapped out, this one is at least more playable.

Probably use the same lousy modem, probably ok for casual data usage, might have buffering issues over youtube. All in all I think this current one is a better value proposition then the previous model.

Given we’ve had 4 tabs in the space of a year, Wonder what they’ll release in months time! Took mine back coz of the dodgey charge port on the first one, left to charge overnight, been on for an hour or so and no GPS yet.

What kind of traveler are you? Recommend on Facebook Tweet Share Compartir. Hide Vaccines and Medicines. Find Out Why Protect Yourself All travelers You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination.

Routine vaccines Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. Most travelers Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

Hepatitis A CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in Indonesia, regardless of where you are eating or staying. Typhoid You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in Indonesia.

Some travelers Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

Hepatitis B You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

Japanese Encephalitis You may need this vaccine if your trip will last more than a month, depending on where you are going in Indonesia and what time of year you are traveling. Malaria When traveling in Indonesia, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria.

Rabies Rabies can be found in dogs, bats, and other mammals in Indonesia, so CDC recommends this vaccine for the following groups: Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities such as camping, hiking, biking, adventure travel, and caving that put them at risk for animal bites.

People who will be working with or around animals such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers. People who are taking long trips or moving to Indonesia Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

Yellow Fever There is no risk of yellow fever in Indonesia. All travelers You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Key Get vaccinated Take antimalarial meds Eat and drink safely Prevent bug bites Keep away from animals Reduce your exposure to germs Avoid sharing body fluids Avoid non-sterile medical or cosmetic equipment.

Hide Stay Healthy and Safe. Eat and drink safely. What can I do to prevent bug bites? Cover exposed skin by wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and hats.

Use an appropriate insect repellent see below. Use permethrin-treated clothing and gear such as boots, pants, socks, and tents. Do not use permethrin directly on skin.

Stay and sleep in air-conditioned or screened rooms. Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. What type of insect repellent should I use? Products with one of the following active ingredients can also help prevent mosquito bites.

Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. What should I do if I am bitten by bugs? Avoid scratching bug bites, and apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to reduce the itching.

Check your entire body for ticks after outdoor activity. Be sure to remove ticks properly. What can I do to avoid bed bugs? Stay alert to changing weather conditions and adjust your plans if conditions become unsafe.

Prepare for activities by wearing the right clothes and packing protective items, such as bug spray, sunscreen, and a basic first aid kit. Consider learning basic first aid and CPR before travel.

Bring a travel health kit with items appropriate for your activities. Heat-related illness, such as heat stroke, can be deadly. Eat and drink regularly, wear loose and lightweight clothing, and limit physical activity during high temperatures.

If you are outside for many hours in heat, eat salty snacks and drink water to stay hydrated and replace salt lost through sweating. Protect yourself from UV radiation: Be especially careful during summer months and at high elevation.

Because sunlight reflects off snow, sand, and water, sun exposure may be increased during activities like skiing, swimming, and sailing. Very cold temperatures can be dangerous. Dress in layers and cover heads, hands, and feet properly if you are visiting a cold location.

Stay safe around water Swim only in designated swimming areas. Obey lifeguards and warning flags on beaches. Practice safe boating—follow all boating safety laws, do not drink alcohol if driving a boat, and always wear a life jacket.

Do not dive into shallow water. Do not swim in freshwater in developing areas or where sanitation is poor. Avoid swallowing water when swimming. Untreated water can carry germs that make you sick.

To prevent infections, wear shoes on beaches where there may be animal waste. Keep away from animals. Follow these tips to protect yourself: Do not touch or feed any animals you do not know.

Do not allow animals to lick open wounds, and do not get animal saliva in your eyes or mouth. Avoid rodents and their urine and feces. Traveling pets should be supervised closely and not allowed to come in contact with local animals.

If you wake in a room with a bat, seek medical care immediately. Bat bites may be hard to see. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately: Wash the wound with soap and clean water.

Go to a doctor right away. Tell your doctor about your injury when you get back to the United States. Reduce your exposure to germs. Follow these tips to avoid getting sick or spreading illness to others while traveling: Wash your hands often, especially before eating.

If you need to touch your face, make sure your hands are clean. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve not your hands when coughing or sneezing. Try to avoid contact with people who are sick.

If you are sick, stay home or in your hotel room, unless you need medical care. Avoid sharing body fluids. Diseases can be spread through body fluids, such as saliva, blood, vomit, and semen.

Use latex condoms correctly. Do not inject drugs. People take more risks when intoxicated. Do not share needles or any devices that can break the skin. That includes needles for tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture.

If you receive medical or dental care, make sure the equipment is disinfected or sanitized. Know how to get medical care while traveling. Plan for how you will get health care during your trip, should the need arise: Carry a list of local doctors and hospitals at your destination.

Review your health insurance plan to determine what medical services it would cover during your trip. Consider purchasing travel health and medical evacuation insurance. Carry a card that identifies, in the local language, your blood type, chronic conditions or serious allergies, and the generic names of any medications you take.

Some prescription drugs may be illegal in other countries. Bring all the medicines including over-the-counter medicines you think you might need during your trip, including extra in case of travel delays.

Ask your doctor to help you get prescriptions filled early if you need to. Walking Be smart when you are traveling on foot. Use sidewalks and marked crosswalks. Pay attention to the traffic around you, especially in crowded areas.

Remember, people on foot do not always have the right of way in other countries. Choose official taxis or public transportation, such as trains and buses. Ride only in cars that have seatbelts.

Avoid overcrowded, overloaded, top-heavy buses and minivans. Avoid riding on motorcycles or motorbikes, especially motorbike taxis. Many crashes are caused by inexperienced motorbike drivers.

Choose newer vehicles—they may have more safety features, such as airbags, and be more reliable. Choose larger vehicles, which may provide more protection in crashes.

Think about the driver. Do not drive after drinking alcohol or ride with someone who has been drinking. Consider hiring a licensed, trained driver familiar with the area. Arrange payment before departing.

Follow basic safety tips. Wear a seatbelt at all times. Sit in the back seat of cars and taxis. When on motorbikes or bicycles, always wear a helmet. Bring a helmet from home, if needed.

Avoid driving at night; street lighting in certain parts of Indonesia may be poor.

Leds in indonesia tablet useable bauhn temporada

So when the battery gives out, it is probably cheaper to buy a new tab than post it back to be serviced? I see no mention of HDMI. Assuming the battery lasts a year, what do you think they’ll be releasing in June?

Its residual value would be next to nothing. I can assure you the difference in performance between the single core last year and the quad core of this year would be substantial albeit the lack of internal memory on the current impending flagship AltiTab.

But you get my drift.. The Tablets usefulness would be long superseeded before the battery gives out. If you are good with you’re hands, you probably could replace it yourself, hairdryers, spatulas and a steady hand are your friend here troubles would just be sourcing a replacement Li-Ion Cell on a generic relatively unknown china-tab rebranded Aldi-Tab..

In terms of expected product lifetimes, not much. The tablet will be long superseded before the battery is expected to be unuseable. However, a non-removeable battery is a curse if the system ever wedges itself.

It varies across brands and models. Yes, as the manufacturer will not want to bother servicing such outdated tech. Hey guys, Wondering if you would recommend this just for web browsing, tiny apps and movies?

My mate has an iPad and loves it to bits, his love for tablets has made venture out and try some for my self, would this be a good first tablet? If it’s just for those three things then it should be fine.

The tablet has enough sufficient hardware for that. What would the tablet not handle? Also, how long may the battery life last? At the end of the day for the intended audience, it’s a number that looks better on paper, adds to the price, yet will give them no benefit.

On the other hand it may teach them about limitations.. Something lacking with a lot kids these days IMO damn I’m making myself sound old: Can I just move my micro-SIM from my smart phone to this tablet?

Failing that, how easy is it to tether my smart phone to the tablet? Many years ago when I bought one of Aldi’s special laptops, I rocked up at about 8: There was already a queue of about 20 people, the first of which had been there since 8: Aldi had checkout just for the laptops.

There was one pallet of laptops and everyone in front of me ran for that checkout. I’m assuming same for this deal. There’s actually 4 scenarios to consider.

In terms of using your smartphone as a USB tether source for the tablet, that won’t be known until Wednesday, June 5th, when the tablet goes on sale. In terms of using your smartphone as a WiFi tether source for the tablet, without knowing the make and model of your smartphone, we can’t have any idea of how hard or easy that is to configure on your smart phone.

Setting up Android on the tablet to use a particular WiFi hotspot is easy. In terms of using the tablet as a USB tether source, it should be easy and standard Android. In terms of using the tablet as a WiFi tether source, it should be easy and standard Android.

No way to know how your Aldi branch will have things set up this time. I think it varies from branch to branch. Going on past form, though, some branches will sell out ridiculously fast. It should be all right for those stock, basic tasks.

With videos, it will likely be trial and error to learn just what height and width is the maximum the device will play. If you just want an entry level WiFi only tablet, then there’s cheaper to be had at Kmart.

Games that don’t require high end hardware should be OK. Battery life is an unknown. If you mean how much use you will get from a single charge, then battery capacity is only part of the story. How much use the device gets in a day, what it’s used for, those things really determine just how much use you will get from a single charge.

If you mean how many recharge cycles will the battery last for, that won’t be known until we’ve had the device for a couple of years. Yeah it should be fine for those tasks.

As for battery life I can’t really tell even though the specs show the battery until someone is able to give it a run. Yes, compared to the actual life of the battery, not being able to disconnect it could be a bigger concern when getting a device with a sealed in battery.

Although it is not a common need to remove or disconnect a battery, it can be a quick and simple solution that saves stress when a system has frozen and is locked up. It is also sometimes a requirement to remove the battery when installing new ROM’s, but the Aldi devices might not have too many alternate ROM’s on offer so probably not a concern.

As always with newly announced devices, we’ll have to wait until it hits the shelves and some intrepid and knowledgeable souls have managed to get their hands on them before we know the whole story Anyone who is more tech savey with android know if this is root-able?

If so could one then upgrade it to 4. We won’t have any idea on wether or not it can be rooted, until it goes on sale on Wednesday June 5th. OS ROMs are very device specific. Wether any dev crew has considered making a new ROM for the Aldi tablet is highly doubtful.

Too low a spec, and too small a market share, to garner the interest would be the most likely scenario. Thanks, I saw from the first post the specs. However there’s no mention of GPU.

The 4Gb is only an issue if you are installing a lot of app’s, for web browsing its not an issue, the RAM and CPU are doing the work, so this being a quad core with 1GB RAM it should be quite good — the Galaxy Note 10″ would be mainly dearer because it’s got more internal memory and has the extra split screen and syllabus features, not because it would necessary be much faster for things like web browsing.

Quality possibly would be at play, but at half the price you wouldn’t expect it to be identical anyway. Most developers don’t enable the ability, some do. The app needs to be programmed to look elsewhere for its coding if its not in the default location.

Apps which use huge data downloads will feature the use of such programming to store the data not the app elsewhere. That being said, there are various posts on the web that claim to allow you do it, even if the developer do not enable the option.

It would appear that success with various different devices varies considerably, so whilst you may be able to do it on this Aldi tablet, you should not count on it. Also most of the described methods require ‘root’ which is the unlocking of the manufacturers lock to have full control of the code and there’s no reason to expect that that ‘root will be achievable with this tablet either.

Just for web browsing the Aldi device will be okay and you wouldn’t notice any difference between the two of them,. I know that force enabling Move to SD, is viable on Android 2.

The other way to move apps to SD is to use Link2SD which uses a second primary partition on your microSD card as an extension of the main internal storage on your device.

Linking differs from Moving in that with Linking, the app and its libraries and its internal data are forcibly stored on the second primary partition of the SD card. Move2SD only moves the app itself, but all the data and libraries stay in the device’s internal storage.

However as you also note, it’s not yet known if we will be able to get root on this latest Aldi tablet, and both the apps I mention are root access mandatory. And how much of that 4gig do you actually expect to write to?

Remember the 4gig includes the OS and any other system paritions so I dont think it will leave alot of room for apps. If you’re a light user its fine, but dont expect to do anything serious unless you root it.

That being said I have a droid tablet with only meg, optus mytab for my old man and its fine for him, he only listens to Tune-In Radio.. It does have a micro-SD slot too but its not used.

Its on Gingerbread so it has the ability for AppsSD without root etc but not needed in this case. I think theres more to it then just 12gb of extra memory. For the rest – The 2GB RAM is likely to make very little to no difference for web browsing and I think the small processor speed difference also would be had to tell apart.

All things being equal Samsung would also work on a higher profit margin paying for the name a bit like Apple. If you used the extra features of the Galaxy note 10, then it would be worth the higher price, but if, as the original question from ‘thc86’ asks, you were only interested in normal use, eg web browsing, then you’d be paying for features you didn’t use and the Aldi tablet would offer much the same experience for a lot less outlay.

In no way am I knocking the Samsung product, it is their flagship model after all, but it is a expensive tablet compared to what else is now available from most other brands, and can’t expect to fit everyone’s budget.

So after queuing along with a few dozen others on Wed next, the soonest I can get online will be to buy an Aldi sim at the same time, and a recharge too. How much are their recharges, and within how many months must they be activated?

I may buy a few, as I’m not often near an Aldi store. Keeping my options open, may need to drop in at Aldi in 59 days time though. I have read posts in the other earlier model’s thread Perhaps this will help: Processor perhaps, would be keen to see.

I hope this one does 1. RAM will make some difference though, on android at least. If it was iOS, perhaps not much difference, but chrome on Android is a pig! The onboard memory will be a hinderance though.

Is there a comparable wi-fi only tablet on the market this price or less? That is a big thing if you don’t like what you get. Can’t help you for what’s available locally, but plenty of choices available if you’re willing to buy from overseas.

Definitely not promoting this site — never used them — but it’s not a bad one to see what’s out there. You can easily search on screen size, chipset type, 3G or not etc so it’s nice to see what’s out there.

Of course all the usual caveats on buying from overseas. My motto would be there is no warranty and work off that: Reading reviews on lots, it appears “ya gets what ya pays for”.

A chat with one of the gadget gurus in JB never goes astray if you are looking at something that all the major players stock. Would this be a good tablet for my elderly parents to simply check mail and browse the web?

They’re not tech savvy at all. Now, after reading this thread and realising its only 4GB internal Wouldn’t have a clue what keeps chewing up the internal memory.

I don’t get that hate about and around this tablet? I did this with the Bauhn 7inch tablet as it was to laggy and slow. Alot of us are just buying this to try it and to have a play around. The point I was trying to make is that its very cheap for 10inch’s and I feel like people are excepting way to much from such a cheap, un-named product.

Will be interested to see what she can do on 4GB though.. Plenty if you want to buy from overseas suppliers. Barely no choice if you want to buy locally. That’s why aldi always gets a lot of takers.

Part of the problem is Aldi’s track record with their budget tablets. Overall QC for them seems good but uneven. Aldi are known for misstating specs of their hardware, and this tablet is no exception.

Some people simply like to put down the entire idea of budget conscious entry level hardware. If size wasn’t an issue, getting this Aldi tablet would be worth a go. If this Aldi tablet can be rooted, then the 4Gb on board storage will not be an issue at all.

Just root the tablet, get a 32Gb microSD, set up an 8Gb second primary partition on that, and then use Link2SD to have apps installed to that second partition on the microSD. Screen res is low, but not so low as to be unusable.

Sound quality won’t be known till we can get our hands on the tablet, but looking at the back of the tablet on the Bauhn website, it looks to be only mono. Good idea about the partitioning too, but for some me, it would be too much of a hassle to root if a root will exist anytime, so might see what the next edition looks like.

Can it use a telstra next G sim for remote location then alternately woolies, optus etc? Are the antennas generally lacking? Is an actual voice call or text possible? The tablet does NOT go on sale until Aldi opens tomorrow morning.

None of us have this tablet yet. Actually did read the thread, my questions were more general in nature relating to past bauhns and the new specs available in thread. Use your tablet to make phone calls and receive SMS messages.

Hmmm I note it doesn’t say you can receive calls and send SMS. One would assume so, but this is Bauhn after all. The antenna’s are already there, I feel that its possible but yet they disable it in the OS.

I can’t stand Skype: Expensive, slow and heavy. I use Viber on my iPhone and would say that it has to be the best thing i’ve used. It has a dual core processor and 16gb of internal storage.

Would this be a better buy, even with the slower processor? That Samsung is a WiFi only tablet. Since I need both, any WiFi only tablet is useless to me. The processor on the Aldi is part of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 series.

However, as it is part of S4 Play think of it as the bottom of the barrel, instead of the Krait cores supposedly A15 class, you have 4 Cortex A5 instead, which is around So it won’t be too far off to think of it as a quad core Cortex A9 running at MHz.

She probably can, but it won’t be a pretty sight. Was just examining the accessories for the tablet on the Bauhn website, and realised something very odd. Accessories pack Bluetooth speaker.

They sold about 6 at Tahmoor, south of Sydney and said they had 15 boxes of 3. So probably a good 30 left in the store. It weighs without the cover, grams with the accessory cover.

We were in a small queue of mainly pensioners, some had bought earlier models and decided to pass the old one on and upgrade as they were very happy with the old ones. Decided to get one anyway, and see how it goes.

Further playing with it will have to wait till I get home. My children inherited all their original digital equipment PC, laptop, ipod, music keyboard, camera etc. He was always itching to get the latest and passing stuff off to his grandchildren was a win-win.

When he passed away at 82, he still had a massive collection of electronics. We halved the contents insurance on the house contents. I think Aldi Ballarat also had 45 units.

I think it was 3 cartons of 15 rather than 15 of 3. I got the last one in carton 1. However I reckon that by the time I got out of the carpark, another carton would have gone given most people in the queue behind me didn’t have any groceries and the tablets were at the checkout.

Just waiting for the battery to charge. The weather is supposed to be crappy today, so what better way to spend it than playing inside with a new toy. If it is only grams thanks luvwotiz then that seems lighter than many.

I have copied some movies from my Topfield PVR onto a portable hard drive as a backup. Is it possible to play the movies on the tablet? Forgot to ask — what stores sell micro usb to female usb adaptors?

At home now, and doing the same thing. My one had 82 percent charge on the battery, straight out of the box. No idea how many Toombul had, here in Brisbane. I think it was 3 cartons of 15 the tablets were at the checkout Same at Toombul.

An opened carton of 15 at one checkout. But, they did not have the cables pack at the checkout. Only the tablet, BT speakers, and the car seat mount. The cables pack was towards the rear of Aldi Toombul on a table with other stuff, and not in the electronics gear cabinet in store.

Doing initial config, I turned up one interesting thing, the tablet is using the AOSP keyboard by default. Need to do a full sync and data backup first. However I reckon that by the time I got out of the carpark, another carton would have gone given most people in the queue behind me didn’t have any groceries At Toombul the ones who didn’t have groceries, were mainly carrying the office furniture on sale, and not after the tablet.

I saw 6 of the chairs and 2 desks go while I was there. The point to note is the msm quad core in the tablet has been renamed snapdragon, if you look at the slides down the bottom you can see it’s roughly equivalent to the quad-core tegra 3 that is in the htc one x in cpu processing power..

Thought the Cortex A5 would be a little slower than that tbh.. I will go out later to buy a micro usb to female usb adaptor Don’t. Best idea, for the time being, is to copy the vids to the microSD, and play from that.

The real difference is in the 3D score, vs for the N7 and that’s no speed demon on the 3D front. Mines showing MB free for internal storage gaming and whatnot, 2GB device storage.. This will be interesting Why did they not assign that 2GB to the device storage rather then partition it off like that?

Or am I missing something? Battery fully charged and wife playing Freecell. Next step is to figure out how to tether it to my android phone. Not sure how it would do on high datarates.

I have read a files off a USB stick and connected a mouse and keyboard which both worked fine. All I had to do was feed it the correct password and it connects and authenticates itself.

The default OSK on the device is totally sad. I’ll have to put SwiftKey on it. So it looks like Apps can run from the SD card, killing all those 4Gb worries and making it expandable endlessly using different SD cards for different games etc.

Its benefit is you can hang nearly any USB device on an Android device. First complaint about the tablet. It’s going to need a protector for the back, to protect the barcode stickers on the back.

The manufacturers seal does not cover the numbers on the barcodes. Any limitations to hard drives, doubt a tablet could power a external hdd. Unless the USB device has an external power pack, it’s low drain gear only.

I was looking for micro usb to female usb to copy or play videos from my portable HDD onto the tablet. But apparently an OTG is better? I have absolutely no idea what an OTG is lol.

It is just that I am going on extended leave soon and would like to take my tablet and my portable HDD with me so I can watch movies on the tablet. I won’t have access to my PC to transfer stuff to the tablet hence why I was looking for something to transfer or play my files eg movies directly from the portable HDD to the tablet.

That’s slower than anything else I’ve seen, the Nexus 7 is at 50fps. In addition the refresh interval seems jerky, almost as if there were a bandwidth restriction somewhere in the system.

So it has internal meg or so free, 2gig partition, and the 16GB physical addon card, doesnt seem to be a way just yet to store apps on it. I had a very quick play with the tablet this morning. Screen transitions seemed pretty poor; very jerky when e.

Now this could simply be because there was stuff going on in the background, as I had only just turned the device on. Please can you try installing an app to the “removable SD card”.

Then go to settings-applications and confirm whether or not it actually installed there? I’ve seen a few devices where this setting doesn’t actually work properly.

Thanks Barrey, but that goes right over my elderly non tech head. Maybe geek son can explain it to me when I see him. Maybe someone who is familiar with Android can try this. This is my first Android and I’ve only owned plain mobile phones.

They could check if the App runs OK. I still have to find out what Apps I might want and where to get them. I’m sure I’ve seen a big thread here on this indispensible Whirlpool forum.

I can try when I get home. Keep reading on here and people will be happy to help you out. Do you have internet at home, with wifi? If so, one app that I like is “guardian anywhere”.

It downloads the news for you each day, there’s a really good range of stuff on there. Not sure what this means unless it’s referring to the cable that comes with the Accessories Pack in which case how do you tell the cables apart?

I’m taking that the USB to DC cable only carries power and not data as well and will not damage anything if you do get them mixed up. Not hard to explain, basically it comes with 4gig, 2 goes to the OS itself, 2 is a user space.

For some reason the decided to let it install apps to the system partition out of the box.. Basically youve got a really limited resource, that, if you’re smart with, can make it more palatable for most.

Just means less support headaches if they made it work in a way where it wont run out of space so quickly.. As I don’t intend to play games on it, I hope any limitations won’t be a problem for me.

I dont see it as a deal breaker, its just got limits that people need to be aware of. By default it seems to write everything to the internal system partition which is kinda dumb, if they wanted to make use of the fact its got a 16gig memory card, they could have made the necessary changes for it to do so at the very least install apps on the 2gig partition instead, force downloads, caches, media files to the actual external SD etc.

Directory bind does get around alot but its with a caveat, as the internal and external memory as considered “one”, you gotta kinda be careful when you remove or unmount the sd card itself.

I wouldnt call the tablet “slow”, not fast but its not bad, I think they would have been better off using a Exynos If it wasnt too much more expensive.. I plugged mine into a computer and saw it charging via USB port, dont think i’ll be using the DC port any time soon.

In other words, the PC sees the tablet as something akin to a flash drive. So connecting a flash drive to the female end of the adapter would be like plugging one flash drive into another — nothing would happen.

Not sure what this means unless it’s referring to the cable that comes with the Accessories Pack. USB port only supplies mA your tablet would demand more then 1A which is overloading the USB port and the charging circuit on the tablet expects 2A but its not getting any so it might over work it trying to regulate the power.

On page 11 of the manual is a Note: My guess is they are either saying the cable won’t allow data, or that you shouldn’t try to charge the tablet from a PC via the USB because I can’t deliver much current.

No, this can’t happen. USB ports are current limited, so can’t be overloaded — they simply don’t supply more current and are not damaged in any way. In terms of charging circuitry, supplying the regulator with less current than its max will not ‘stress’ it, it will simply take much longer to charge the tablet, or not charge the tablet at all.

It’ll be the latter, unless I am mistaken. Those Y cables were needed as standard single USB ports do not supply enough current. So early thoughts on this tablet?? Anyone looked into rooting and possibly upgrading to newer android.

Actually not exactly true. That only applies to the tablets with ‘OTG only’ function. All my 4 tablets Toshiba have full USB host functionality so it depends on the brand and what extra effort they go to.

Ok, I successfully transferred a movie from my PC to the micro sd card in the tablet and it plays perfectly. I did this using the usb cable that came with the tablet and connected it to my PC to transfer the files from my PC to the tablet.

The captions are from my Topfield PVR so they are not in. Not sure how to get captioned movies from my PVR onto the tablet. Overall it seems pretty decent. Screen responsiveness is okay.

Could be a bit smoother. Takes forever to charge it seems. Played back a p video with AC-3 5. With that video plays smoothly. Installed Subway Surfer — game plays but 3D graphics is a bit weak. Screen reponse could be smoother.

Have yet to try 3G. Waiting to go home and see. Otherwise looks like a reasonable priced tablet for those who aren’t going to go crazy installing apps. At this stage, they might get our 2 back yet!

Note to everyone who doesn’t know — make sure you give your tablet a really good charge the first time you charge, as its also calibrating its capacity and those instructions you get telling you to leave in on charge the first time for quite awhile are put in for a good reason.

The battery is not normally fully charged at the factory, so it does not come calibrated. I stuck a usb OTG cable with a usb stick on it. It recognised that the stick was unformatted and formatted it..

One problem though — how do you know when it has reached maximum charge if you are charging it while it is turned off? The tablet’s instructions say “when the tablet is off, a charging indicator will briefly appear on screen when the tablet is connected to a charger.

Could someone please confirm or deny if there latest Tablet from Aldi was wrapped in plastic The Original Box they hand to you There last release was but they said this one isn’t..

I find that strange as anyone from the store can access the contents.. Upon Opening it i could see marks on the plastic cover where someone had used it.. My last one was clean of any marks..

Could someone please confirm or deny if there latest Tablet from Aldi was wrapped in plastic. Mine was not sealed at all. The box had no seal and the tablet inside was just slipped inside a plastic sleeve and not sealed.

Got my tablet internet connection working thru my android phone and an iPhone4. Maybe the 3rd significant figure has been deleted as a cost saving: The graphics on this thing seem slower than my aldi phone.

I don’t think it can do p. The information on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play with Adreno which is what this is says it will do only p. Where I bought mine, the cartons were sealed and kept behind a checkout.

The tablets were handed to customers directly from a then opened carton. Same as my old Medion laptop. Can’t get it to render p in anything other than software hence only a few fps. No idea if the carton was unsealed before opening at Toombul.

The boxes were beside the checkout operator, but out of reach of customers. There was no tamper evident seals on the box for mine. Taped closed soft sleeve, and manufacturers seals in place front and rear of the unit.

Got one today around lunchtime, performance really isn’t up to my expectation. It feels like my old Motorola Xoom Tegra 2 running Android 4. The overall performance isn’t too bad but it isn’t what I would call buttery smooth in any way, shape or form.

Benchmark-wise isn’t too bad, SunSpider 0. However, the Aldi is truly out of its depth running anything that involves the GPU. Nenamark returns a Also be aware that the tablet doesn’t have a light sensor, so it won’t adjust brightness of the LCD screen automatically.

Was thinking of using this as a replacement of my Xoom but I think it probably will be returned to Aldi after work. Just ran Vellamo, results is surprisingly similar to my Nexus 7 running on 4.

If the battery has never been fully charged, which it won’t have then it has never been fully exercised. The only time you should fully discharge your battery is the few first use as per makers instructions.

Going to have to put a decent launcher app on mine. What I am finding hard to become accustomed to, is not having any physical menu, home, or back buttons. Can someone please tell me what type of SIM it is supposed to use.

And now she can’t remove it! Physical buttons on both. I’ll get used to how JB with no physical buttons is, over time. Just that now, at first, it’s not easy to be instantly used to. I only want to use it for browsing the internet whilst I sit in my rocking chair lol with a shawl wrapped around me lol rather than sit at the computer on these cold winter days.

As this is my first non windows experience, it is going to be a fairly steep learning curve so a few questions if I may:. I have a 4g plan with iinet optus but where I live I can only get 3g, I have managed to get it the internet up and running via my TP Link wifi no problems but would prefer to be able to use the sim in the tablet.

Also whenever I click on browser it just brings up Google, does it not have Chrome or similar where I can just use it like a normal browser instead of having to find a website through google???.

It only has the stock Android Browser. No Chrome, no Dolphin, no Firefox. You’ll have to go to Play Store and download and install those third party browsers. Did the same this morning too much hurry!

Managed to extract it v.. So far, I think for the price, it isn’t too bad, it is a bit laggy but for what I want it for, it will be OK. Installed temple run 2 to see how it would handle it Cannot find sensor calibration in menu, any one know where it is?

My main use will be basic surfing and movies, so far MX player is working fine, the poster who copied topfield files across, did u convert them, or leave them in the toppy format?

PS Skype works wohoo, known to have issues on aldi dual sim phone. Just clicked your link and there is a Jaycar not too far away so looks like I’m all set: I just copied them, no conversion and left them in the toppy format ie copied from Topfield to my PC then from PC to the tablet — I’ve got absolutely no idea about conversion lol.

The video plays fine with just being copied. The only problem I had was that I couldn’t get the captions up. She rang support, and the standard SIM is apparently the correct one, but she punched out and inserted the smaller one, and now it is stuck.

Ad2, The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC! There is a subtitle setting in MX player Careful with that Jaycar OTG cable. I have one — and the connection into the tablet is right angled.

Immediately adjacent my micro USB port, I have a power connection and on the other side a headphones connection. My plan was to load Youtube vids on the USB stick and watch them using earphones.

However I am finding that with the right angled usb connector, I cant plug the usb cable and the headphones in at the same time. I will need a straight USB cable. The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC!

Aint that the truth. Took me more than 12 continuous hours to copy the video files from my toppy to my PC although admittedly I noticed a connection problem at one point but don’t know how long it was hung-up.

Thanks for the heads-up about the subtitle extraction file. I’ll have a new look at the toppy forum and give it a go if the forum is up lol. From my first impressions, the tablet is pretty decent value.

The tablet will probably suit a lot of people. Is this rooted not in android meaning will return but maybe none left. Hope you can find a straight cable connection.

It should have showed the charging indicator but just a thought, did you hold the power button in for at least 3sec on startup. Thanks for the warning Baz. As someone mentioned before me, mine also is mainly for sitting in the chair rugged up on a winters night browsing the internet or playing internet games.

This is using my house wireless connection. I’ve also configured my phone android and my wife’s iPhone4 as an access point and just went out of range of my house connection and the connections thru the phones work great.

No need for a SIM in the Aldi as yet. Just had a quick play. Sound is horrible, I couldn’t bare it without headphones, but the kids might be able to tolerate it. First tablet for us well, except for my OptusTab which was horrible, and the first thing I noticed was the weight.

Might be too heavy for a 4 and 6yo, but depends on where they use it I guess. Probably not an Aldi problem, maybe just a Did anyone get the accessory pack? I’m a bit worried about the kids using it without a cover, in case I want to make use of the 60 day return period.

I legitimately need the kids to try this for a few days to see if they would be better with a 7″ form factor. Keen to hear a review. Perhaps you are not holding the power button in for long enough.

You need to hold it in for several seconds before letting it go. Nothing spectacular, but I would prefer to have it than not have it as the tablet is a bit slippery and it does offer some protection, plus you can tke it back with the tablet if necessary.

Given my kids don’t need 3G, and a 7″ might be a better size for them, would a Nexus 7 or Galaxy Tab 2 7″ be a better option? How do they compare on a performance front? I seem to be having problems with my tablet also.

First Android machine so hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. Trying to turn on Wi-Fi — I assume I should be able to connect to netgear router both 2. I am standing next to router??

Is it a dud or me? I doubt that that unit would have much charge in it after only 4 hours charging with a USB connector. When mine is fully charged, and I am in my camperbus, I use a 12V Cig lighter plug to Micro USB when using the tablet and the tablet draws enough then to retain charge while in use.

Charging from a USB cable is painfully slow with any device bigger than a phone. The v way is a much better option if your device needs a big charge. As far as screen size goes, my grandson manages okay with a 9.

It is big but he copes quite well and much better than on his mum’s iPhone. Compare it to something like the Nexus 7. It’s cpu and Graphics blow this aldi tablet away, it is 7inch, not 10 inch however it has the same resolution as aldi tablet because it’s a higher quality screen.

It is really lacking GPU wise with both 2d and 3d graphics. It’s cpu not great but not such a problem. It will only see the internal 2Gb partition. I’m starting to suspect my thought that having no hard home or back buttons would be a PITA.

Some apps already I have to go through multiple stages just to get back to the home screen. Am I missing something, or is this something that we’ll just have to endure?

Bit hard to understand your problem. You can manipulate these buttons to do different things — with either short presses or long presses. It is reasonably self explanatory once you realise about the short and long presses.

Android was a real “mystery” for me at first — but I am happy with it now. I had the same behaviour with some apps, on my phone and my old tablet. Haven’t, yet, installed Dolphin Browser, as I need to nuke stuff I copied to that damned 2Gb partition.

To fast exit Dolphin, you have to press and hold the back button, which brings up the Exit Menu for the app. The popup action menu for the tablet in Windows Explorer only shows actions for the 2Gb partition.

Bloody MS nearly giving me a heart attack. So far i found that mhl doesnt work. Standard otg cable works. It can charge via micro usb port. Screen is not ips. I have found that Apps have been the hardest thing to cope with in Android.

NONE of them come with any kind of instructions how to use the App — it is all a matter of trial and error. Some apps will have a small icon with three vertical dots somewhere — this is usually important when long pressed for various reasons — Some have a row of icons along the top of the App with no readily apparent indication of their function.

I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface ie not connected to a Windows computer. I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface.

I find ES explorer app best for this. Let’s you connect to your home network too. I stream shows from my nas and watch them over the home network. Is there any way to disable Gmail?

These are for the kids, and I’ve added my account to install some apps I’ve paid for, but I don’t want the kids messing with my email. I asked this early in the thread with no response. This is a likely alternative for me if I return the Aldi tab.

I don’t think so — but others here will advise further. Set up a dummy gmail account eg. Hiya, I am getting no GPS either.. This could be a major problem for me. Not impressed I’m wondering if it would be any different having a simcard in?

Wondering if it has a GPS at all at this stage, although if it didnt I suspect that the settings would be inaccessable. I’mm email bauhn later. I cannot seem to find any setting for that Care to enlighten me as to what it is and where i turn it on?

I use “APP lock” from the play store it puts a pin lock on any app you specify, I find it very handy. Settings — Location access only has 3 options: Access to my location — switch on or off.

Happy with mine so far. Bought it for my kids as they have a crappy pendo pad 7inch and keep taking my Xoom. Being that they are 4 and 2 they aren’t going to notice subpar GPU.

Thinner and little lighter than the Xoom, but has a bigger bezel so it doesn’t fit in my Xoom case. On the upside when the kids aren’t using it I now have a Check out the link for a pic of it in action.

More than happy with mine. Great tablet for browsing the web and getting some work done. Would recommend this if this is your first tablet like me, easy to pickup and master.

Click on your gmail account and the Google links that are able to be syncronised are shown, with a tick beside those being synced. Untick Gmail and that’s it.

I picked up one of these today. Typing this on it. The only thing that annoys me me are the keyboard clicks, does anyone know how to turn them off? I bought the Bauhn today and asked for a SIM.

They should be here tomorrow. My first complaint is that the charger wall wart has a pair of “wings” which unnecessarily widen its footprint and prevent another device sharing the double power point here.

If I decide to keep it I’ll have to chisel one wing off. Bought one today and I’m typing this on it with SwiftKey and Firefox. Everything has gone smoothly and everything works as advertised.

Charging via the supplied adaptor is fine, probably hours to full charge. Running apps from SD chip is simple, so yes, you really do have 20GB available straight out of the box. The unit comes with a nice clean Jelly Bean install, which is a refreshing change from the likes of Samsung, Sony, LG etc, who load up their units with non-removable bloated crap.

The quad-core processor is really great and apps run smoothly even when multitasking. The screen certainly ain’t no retina resolution but what do you expect for this price? It’s good enough and unless you go out of your way to be picky you won’t even notice.

Games run smoothly, network works fine, bluetooth is fine, audio is fine if you use external speakers. Sure the internal speaker is much like a laptop but what do you expect? Watching movies with MX is a pleasant experience especially with those external speakers UNLESS you try and play x which will lead to a hopeless scenario of frozen frames.

Also some hi-def YouTube clips will also drop frames such as Gangnam Style. Clearly the graphics hardware is not up to hires movies, so if that’s what you need you’d better look elsewhere.

I haven’t tried the camera under All conditions yet but I have fiddled with all the settings and it appears that the camera on this unit is VERY poor. So poor in fact that I will not be using it.

But that’s ok for me, I bought a display device, not a camera. I’ve got plenty of those already. If you need a tablet with a decent camera you’d better look elsewhere.

USB interface to the SD chip was effortless. The only caveat being that the chip is partitioned, so you need to navigate up to the root and select the correct partition. This is simple to do and I had no trouble downloading 14GB of songs, books, comics, movies etc from my desktop.

I installed numerous apps of course and there was no problem there. This tablet is a great bargain! And don’t forget it comes with 3G limited to Telstra and resellers like Aldi.

It does what I need it for and it does it well. If you want to surf the net and fire off a few emails while watching the TV, or check your Facebook and play words with friends over a coffee, or watch a medium res movie or some YouTube in bed, or read a book on a tram, then this unit is for you.

If you like spending double for the sake of it then go visit your Apple store. When next posting, please use the paragraph key Hi all, could we get a roll call as to GPS working or not please.

Seems there is some working an some not. I will email bauhn with this info. Hunted Google for the info, and learned that Jelly Bean expects widgets to be installed to internal memory.

I’d earlier set the install location to the SD card. So the widget had been installed there. I use Optus and their resellers such as iinet. Can this lock be removed? GPS not working at all like the rest of you guys, guide frustrating.

Just another note to say I have mailed bauhn with the details of the GPS problem and links to this forum, when they reply I will post here. Here’s hoping they reply publicly. Keep replies coming as to whether you GPS is working or not please.

Thanks for that one Greg. I’ll send them an email as well. Everyone in this thread with GPS probs should do the same really. Got mine yesterday as well as the accessory pack. It’s an alright tablet, nothing outstanding, but about what I would expect for the price.

Screen is OK, not great. It will be fine for basic web browsing and everything, but if you want high def images and deep colour it will disappoint. Cameras are not worth mentioning.

Both are pretty poor quality. For anything other than basic Skype or internet chat they aren’t worth using. Browser runs smoothly without much lag.

Routine vaccines Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. Most travelers Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

Hepatitis A CDC recommends this vaccine because you can get hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in Indonesia, regardless of where you are eating or staying. Typhoid You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in Indonesia.

Some travelers Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

Hepatitis B You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

Japanese Encephalitis You may need this vaccine if your trip will last more than a month, depending on where you are going in Indonesia and what time of year you are traveling. Malaria When traveling in Indonesia, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria.

Rabies Rabies can be found in dogs, bats, and other mammals in Indonesia, so CDC recommends this vaccine for the following groups: Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities such as camping, hiking, biking, adventure travel, and caving that put them at risk for animal bites.

People who will be working with or around animals such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers. People who are taking long trips or moving to Indonesia Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

Ask your doctor to help you get prescriptions filled early if you need to. Walking Be smart when you are traveling on foot. Use sidewalks and marked crosswalks.

Pay attention to the traffic around you, especially in crowded areas.

However, as it is part of S4 Play think of it as the bottom of the barrel, instead of the Krait cores supposedly A15 class, you have 4 Cortex A5 instead, which is around So it won’t be too far off to think of it as a quad core Cortex A9 running at MHz.

She probably can, but it won’t be a pretty sight. Was just examining the accessories for the tablet on the Bauhn website, and realised something very odd. Accessories pack Bluetooth speaker.

They sold about 6 at Tahmoor, south of Sydney and said they had 15 boxes of 3. So probably a good 30 left in the store. It weighs without the cover, grams with the accessory cover. We were in a small queue of mainly pensioners, some had bought earlier models and decided to pass the old one on and upgrade as they were very happy with the old ones.

Decided to get one anyway, and see how it goes. Further playing with it will have to wait till I get home. My children inherited all their original digital equipment PC, laptop, ipod, music keyboard, camera etc.

He was always itching to get the latest and passing stuff off to his grandchildren was a win-win. When he passed away at 82, he still had a massive collection of electronics. We halved the contents insurance on the house contents.

I think Aldi Ballarat also had 45 units. I think it was 3 cartons of 15 rather than 15 of 3. I got the last one in carton 1. However I reckon that by the time I got out of the carpark, another carton would have gone given most people in the queue behind me didn’t have any groceries and the tablets were at the checkout.

Just waiting for the battery to charge. The weather is supposed to be crappy today, so what better way to spend it than playing inside with a new toy. If it is only grams thanks luvwotiz then that seems lighter than many.

I have copied some movies from my Topfield PVR onto a portable hard drive as a backup. Is it possible to play the movies on the tablet? Forgot to ask — what stores sell micro usb to female usb adaptors?

At home now, and doing the same thing. My one had 82 percent charge on the battery, straight out of the box. No idea how many Toombul had, here in Brisbane. I think it was 3 cartons of 15 the tablets were at the checkout Same at Toombul.

An opened carton of 15 at one checkout. But, they did not have the cables pack at the checkout. Only the tablet, BT speakers, and the car seat mount. The cables pack was towards the rear of Aldi Toombul on a table with other stuff, and not in the electronics gear cabinet in store.

Doing initial config, I turned up one interesting thing, the tablet is using the AOSP keyboard by default. Need to do a full sync and data backup first. However I reckon that by the time I got out of the carpark, another carton would have gone given most people in the queue behind me didn’t have any groceries At Toombul the ones who didn’t have groceries, were mainly carrying the office furniture on sale, and not after the tablet.

I saw 6 of the chairs and 2 desks go while I was there. The point to note is the msm quad core in the tablet has been renamed snapdragon, if you look at the slides down the bottom you can see it’s roughly equivalent to the quad-core tegra 3 that is in the htc one x in cpu processing power..

Thought the Cortex A5 would be a little slower than that tbh.. I will go out later to buy a micro usb to female usb adaptor Don’t. Best idea, for the time being, is to copy the vids to the microSD, and play from that.

The real difference is in the 3D score, vs for the N7 and that’s no speed demon on the 3D front. Mines showing MB free for internal storage gaming and whatnot, 2GB device storage..

This will be interesting Why did they not assign that 2GB to the device storage rather then partition it off like that? Or am I missing something? Battery fully charged and wife playing Freecell.

Next step is to figure out how to tether it to my android phone. Not sure how it would do on high datarates. I have read a files off a USB stick and connected a mouse and keyboard which both worked fine.

All I had to do was feed it the correct password and it connects and authenticates itself. The default OSK on the device is totally sad. I’ll have to put SwiftKey on it.

So it looks like Apps can run from the SD card, killing all those 4Gb worries and making it expandable endlessly using different SD cards for different games etc. Its benefit is you can hang nearly any USB device on an Android device.

First complaint about the tablet. It’s going to need a protector for the back, to protect the barcode stickers on the back. The manufacturers seal does not cover the numbers on the barcodes.

Any limitations to hard drives, doubt a tablet could power a external hdd. Unless the USB device has an external power pack, it’s low drain gear only. I was looking for micro usb to female usb to copy or play videos from my portable HDD onto the tablet.

But apparently an OTG is better? I have absolutely no idea what an OTG is lol. It is just that I am going on extended leave soon and would like to take my tablet and my portable HDD with me so I can watch movies on the tablet.

I won’t have access to my PC to transfer stuff to the tablet hence why I was looking for something to transfer or play my files eg movies directly from the portable HDD to the tablet.

That’s slower than anything else I’ve seen, the Nexus 7 is at 50fps. In addition the refresh interval seems jerky, almost as if there were a bandwidth restriction somewhere in the system. So it has internal meg or so free, 2gig partition, and the 16GB physical addon card, doesnt seem to be a way just yet to store apps on it.

I had a very quick play with the tablet this morning. Screen transitions seemed pretty poor; very jerky when e. Now this could simply be because there was stuff going on in the background, as I had only just turned the device on.

Please can you try installing an app to the “removable SD card”. Then go to settings-applications and confirm whether or not it actually installed there? I’ve seen a few devices where this setting doesn’t actually work properly.

Thanks Barrey, but that goes right over my elderly non tech head. Maybe geek son can explain it to me when I see him. Maybe someone who is familiar with Android can try this. This is my first Android and I’ve only owned plain mobile phones.

They could check if the App runs OK. I still have to find out what Apps I might want and where to get them. I’m sure I’ve seen a big thread here on this indispensible Whirlpool forum.

I can try when I get home. Keep reading on here and people will be happy to help you out. Do you have internet at home, with wifi? If so, one app that I like is “guardian anywhere”. It downloads the news for you each day, there’s a really good range of stuff on there.

Not sure what this means unless it’s referring to the cable that comes with the Accessories Pack in which case how do you tell the cables apart? I’m taking that the USB to DC cable only carries power and not data as well and will not damage anything if you do get them mixed up.

Not hard to explain, basically it comes with 4gig, 2 goes to the OS itself, 2 is a user space. For some reason the decided to let it install apps to the system partition out of the box..

Basically youve got a really limited resource, that, if you’re smart with, can make it more palatable for most. Just means less support headaches if they made it work in a way where it wont run out of space so quickly..

As I don’t intend to play games on it, I hope any limitations won’t be a problem for me. I dont see it as a deal breaker, its just got limits that people need to be aware of. By default it seems to write everything to the internal system partition which is kinda dumb, if they wanted to make use of the fact its got a 16gig memory card, they could have made the necessary changes for it to do so at the very least install apps on the 2gig partition instead, force downloads, caches, media files to the actual external SD etc.

Directory bind does get around alot but its with a caveat, as the internal and external memory as considered “one”, you gotta kinda be careful when you remove or unmount the sd card itself.

I wouldnt call the tablet “slow”, not fast but its not bad, I think they would have been better off using a Exynos If it wasnt too much more expensive.. I plugged mine into a computer and saw it charging via USB port, dont think i’ll be using the DC port any time soon.

In other words, the PC sees the tablet as something akin to a flash drive. So connecting a flash drive to the female end of the adapter would be like plugging one flash drive into another — nothing would happen.

Not sure what this means unless it’s referring to the cable that comes with the Accessories Pack. USB port only supplies mA your tablet would demand more then 1A which is overloading the USB port and the charging circuit on the tablet expects 2A but its not getting any so it might over work it trying to regulate the power.

On page 11 of the manual is a Note: My guess is they are either saying the cable won’t allow data, or that you shouldn’t try to charge the tablet from a PC via the USB because I can’t deliver much current.

No, this can’t happen. USB ports are current limited, so can’t be overloaded — they simply don’t supply more current and are not damaged in any way. In terms of charging circuitry, supplying the regulator with less current than its max will not ‘stress’ it, it will simply take much longer to charge the tablet, or not charge the tablet at all.

It’ll be the latter, unless I am mistaken. Those Y cables were needed as standard single USB ports do not supply enough current. So early thoughts on this tablet?? Anyone looked into rooting and possibly upgrading to newer android.

Actually not exactly true. That only applies to the tablets with ‘OTG only’ function. All my 4 tablets Toshiba have full USB host functionality so it depends on the brand and what extra effort they go to.

Ok, I successfully transferred a movie from my PC to the micro sd card in the tablet and it plays perfectly. I did this using the usb cable that came with the tablet and connected it to my PC to transfer the files from my PC to the tablet.

The captions are from my Topfield PVR so they are not in. Not sure how to get captioned movies from my PVR onto the tablet. Overall it seems pretty decent.

Screen responsiveness is okay. Could be a bit smoother. Takes forever to charge it seems. Played back a p video with AC-3 5. With that video plays smoothly.

Installed Subway Surfer — game plays but 3D graphics is a bit weak. Screen reponse could be smoother. Have yet to try 3G. Waiting to go home and see. Otherwise looks like a reasonable priced tablet for those who aren’t going to go crazy installing apps.

At this stage, they might get our 2 back yet! Note to everyone who doesn’t know — make sure you give your tablet a really good charge the first time you charge, as its also calibrating its capacity and those instructions you get telling you to leave in on charge the first time for quite awhile are put in for a good reason.

The battery is not normally fully charged at the factory, so it does not come calibrated. I stuck a usb OTG cable with a usb stick on it. It recognised that the stick was unformatted and formatted it..

One problem though — how do you know when it has reached maximum charge if you are charging it while it is turned off? The tablet’s instructions say “when the tablet is off, a charging indicator will briefly appear on screen when the tablet is connected to a charger.

Could someone please confirm or deny if there latest Tablet from Aldi was wrapped in plastic The Original Box they hand to you There last release was but they said this one isn’t..

I find that strange as anyone from the store can access the contents.. Upon Opening it i could see marks on the plastic cover where someone had used it.. My last one was clean of any marks..

Could someone please confirm or deny if there latest Tablet from Aldi was wrapped in plastic. Mine was not sealed at all. The box had no seal and the tablet inside was just slipped inside a plastic sleeve and not sealed.

Got my tablet internet connection working thru my android phone and an iPhone4. Maybe the 3rd significant figure has been deleted as a cost saving: The graphics on this thing seem slower than my aldi phone.

I don’t think it can do p. The information on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play with Adreno which is what this is says it will do only p. Where I bought mine, the cartons were sealed and kept behind a checkout.

The tablets were handed to customers directly from a then opened carton. Same as my old Medion laptop. Can’t get it to render p in anything other than software hence only a few fps.

No idea if the carton was unsealed before opening at Toombul. The boxes were beside the checkout operator, but out of reach of customers. There was no tamper evident seals on the box for mine.

Taped closed soft sleeve, and manufacturers seals in place front and rear of the unit. Got one today around lunchtime, performance really isn’t up to my expectation.

It feels like my old Motorola Xoom Tegra 2 running Android 4. The overall performance isn’t too bad but it isn’t what I would call buttery smooth in any way, shape or form. Benchmark-wise isn’t too bad, SunSpider 0.

However, the Aldi is truly out of its depth running anything that involves the GPU. Nenamark returns a Also be aware that the tablet doesn’t have a light sensor, so it won’t adjust brightness of the LCD screen automatically.

Was thinking of using this as a replacement of my Xoom but I think it probably will be returned to Aldi after work. Just ran Vellamo, results is surprisingly similar to my Nexus 7 running on 4.

If the battery has never been fully charged, which it won’t have then it has never been fully exercised. The only time you should fully discharge your battery is the few first use as per makers instructions.

Going to have to put a decent launcher app on mine. What I am finding hard to become accustomed to, is not having any physical menu, home, or back buttons.

Can someone please tell me what type of SIM it is supposed to use. And now she can’t remove it! Physical buttons on both. I’ll get used to how JB with no physical buttons is, over time. Just that now, at first, it’s not easy to be instantly used to.

I only want to use it for browsing the internet whilst I sit in my rocking chair lol with a shawl wrapped around me lol rather than sit at the computer on these cold winter days.

As this is my first non windows experience, it is going to be a fairly steep learning curve so a few questions if I may:. I have a 4g plan with iinet optus but where I live I can only get 3g, I have managed to get it the internet up and running via my TP Link wifi no problems but would prefer to be able to use the sim in the tablet.

Also whenever I click on browser it just brings up Google, does it not have Chrome or similar where I can just use it like a normal browser instead of having to find a website through google???.

It only has the stock Android Browser. No Chrome, no Dolphin, no Firefox. You’ll have to go to Play Store and download and install those third party browsers. Did the same this morning too much hurry!

Managed to extract it v.. So far, I think for the price, it isn’t too bad, it is a bit laggy but for what I want it for, it will be OK. Installed temple run 2 to see how it would handle it Cannot find sensor calibration in menu, any one know where it is?

My main use will be basic surfing and movies, so far MX player is working fine, the poster who copied topfield files across, did u convert them, or leave them in the toppy format?

PS Skype works wohoo, known to have issues on aldi dual sim phone. Just clicked your link and there is a Jaycar not too far away so looks like I’m all set: I just copied them, no conversion and left them in the toppy format ie copied from Topfield to my PC then from PC to the tablet — I’ve got absolutely no idea about conversion lol.

The video plays fine with just being copied. The only problem I had was that I couldn’t get the captions up. She rang support, and the standard SIM is apparently the correct one, but she punched out and inserted the smaller one, and now it is stuck.

Ad2, The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC! There is a subtitle setting in MX player Careful with that Jaycar OTG cable. I have one — and the connection into the tablet is right angled.

Immediately adjacent my micro USB port, I have a power connection and on the other side a headphones connection. My plan was to load Youtube vids on the USB stick and watch them using earphones.

However I am finding that with the right angled usb connector, I cant plug the usb cable and the headphones in at the same time. I will need a straight USB cable. The worst thing is how slow filezilla takes to copy from toppy to PC!

Aint that the truth. Took me more than 12 continuous hours to copy the video files from my toppy to my PC although admittedly I noticed a connection problem at one point but don’t know how long it was hung-up.

Thanks for the heads-up about the subtitle extraction file. I’ll have a new look at the toppy forum and give it a go if the forum is up lol. From my first impressions, the tablet is pretty decent value.

The tablet will probably suit a lot of people. Is this rooted not in android meaning will return but maybe none left. Hope you can find a straight cable connection.

It should have showed the charging indicator but just a thought, did you hold the power button in for at least 3sec on startup. Thanks for the warning Baz. As someone mentioned before me, mine also is mainly for sitting in the chair rugged up on a winters night browsing the internet or playing internet games.

This is using my house wireless connection. I’ve also configured my phone android and my wife’s iPhone4 as an access point and just went out of range of my house connection and the connections thru the phones work great.

No need for a SIM in the Aldi as yet. Just had a quick play. Sound is horrible, I couldn’t bare it without headphones, but the kids might be able to tolerate it. First tablet for us well, except for my OptusTab which was horrible, and the first thing I noticed was the weight.

Might be too heavy for a 4 and 6yo, but depends on where they use it I guess. Probably not an Aldi problem, maybe just a Did anyone get the accessory pack? I’m a bit worried about the kids using it without a cover, in case I want to make use of the 60 day return period.

I legitimately need the kids to try this for a few days to see if they would be better with a 7″ form factor. Keen to hear a review. Perhaps you are not holding the power button in for long enough.

You need to hold it in for several seconds before letting it go. Nothing spectacular, but I would prefer to have it than not have it as the tablet is a bit slippery and it does offer some protection, plus you can tke it back with the tablet if necessary.

Given my kids don’t need 3G, and a 7″ might be a better size for them, would a Nexus 7 or Galaxy Tab 2 7″ be a better option? How do they compare on a performance front?

I seem to be having problems with my tablet also. First Android machine so hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. Trying to turn on Wi-Fi — I assume I should be able to connect to netgear router both 2.

I am standing next to router?? Is it a dud or me? I doubt that that unit would have much charge in it after only 4 hours charging with a USB connector. When mine is fully charged, and I am in my camperbus, I use a 12V Cig lighter plug to Micro USB when using the tablet and the tablet draws enough then to retain charge while in use.

Charging from a USB cable is painfully slow with any device bigger than a phone. The v way is a much better option if your device needs a big charge. As far as screen size goes, my grandson manages okay with a 9.

It is big but he copes quite well and much better than on his mum’s iPhone. Compare it to something like the Nexus 7. It’s cpu and Graphics blow this aldi tablet away, it is 7inch, not 10 inch however it has the same resolution as aldi tablet because it’s a higher quality screen.

It is really lacking GPU wise with both 2d and 3d graphics. It’s cpu not great but not such a problem. It will only see the internal 2Gb partition. I’m starting to suspect my thought that having no hard home or back buttons would be a PITA.

Some apps already I have to go through multiple stages just to get back to the home screen. Am I missing something, or is this something that we’ll just have to endure?

Bit hard to understand your problem. You can manipulate these buttons to do different things — with either short presses or long presses. It is reasonably self explanatory once you realise about the short and long presses.

Android was a real “mystery” for me at first — but I am happy with it now. I had the same behaviour with some apps, on my phone and my old tablet. Haven’t, yet, installed Dolphin Browser, as I need to nuke stuff I copied to that damned 2Gb partition.

To fast exit Dolphin, you have to press and hold the back button, which brings up the Exit Menu for the app. The popup action menu for the tablet in Windows Explorer only shows actions for the 2Gb partition.

Bloody MS nearly giving me a heart attack. So far i found that mhl doesnt work. Standard otg cable works. It can charge via micro usb port. Screen is not ips. I have found that Apps have been the hardest thing to cope with in Android.

NONE of them come with any kind of instructions how to use the App — it is all a matter of trial and error. Some apps will have a small icon with three vertical dots somewhere — this is usually important when long pressed for various reasons — Some have a row of icons along the top of the App with no readily apparent indication of their function.

I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface ie not connected to a Windows computer. I have only recently worked out how I can transfer files from my USB stick to the external SD card via the tablet interface.

I find ES explorer app best for this. Let’s you connect to your home network too. I stream shows from my nas and watch them over the home network. Is there any way to disable Gmail?

These are for the kids, and I’ve added my account to install some apps I’ve paid for, but I don’t want the kids messing with my email. I asked this early in the thread with no response.

This is a likely alternative for me if I return the Aldi tab. I don’t think so — but others here will advise further. Set up a dummy gmail account eg. Hiya, I am getting no GPS either.. This could be a major problem for me.

Not impressed I’m wondering if it would be any different having a simcard in? Wondering if it has a GPS at all at this stage, although if it didnt I suspect that the settings would be inaccessable.

I’mm email bauhn later. I cannot seem to find any setting for that Care to enlighten me as to what it is and where i turn it on? I use “APP lock” from the play store it puts a pin lock on any app you specify, I find it very handy.

Settings — Location access only has 3 options: Access to my location — switch on or off. Happy with mine so far. Bought it for my kids as they have a crappy pendo pad 7inch and keep taking my Xoom.

Being that they are 4 and 2 they aren’t going to notice subpar GPU. Thinner and little lighter than the Xoom, but has a bigger bezel so it doesn’t fit in my Xoom case.

On the upside when the kids aren’t using it I now have a Check out the link for a pic of it in action. More than happy with mine. Great tablet for browsing the web and getting some work done.

Would recommend this if this is your first tablet like me, easy to pickup and master. Click on your gmail account and the Google links that are able to be syncronised are shown, with a tick beside those being synced.

Untick Gmail and that’s it. I picked up one of these today. Typing this on it. The only thing that annoys me me are the keyboard clicks, does anyone know how to turn them off?

I bought the Bauhn today and asked for a SIM. They should be here tomorrow. My first complaint is that the charger wall wart has a pair of “wings” which unnecessarily widen its footprint and prevent another device sharing the double power point here.

If I decide to keep it I’ll have to chisel one wing off. Bought one today and I’m typing this on it with SwiftKey and Firefox. Everything has gone smoothly and everything works as advertised. Charging via the supplied adaptor is fine, probably hours to full charge.

Running apps from SD chip is simple, so yes, you really do have 20GB available straight out of the box. The unit comes with a nice clean Jelly Bean install, which is a refreshing change from the likes of Samsung, Sony, LG etc, who load up their units with non-removable bloated crap.

The quad-core processor is really great and apps run smoothly even when multitasking. The screen certainly ain’t no retina resolution but what do you expect for this price? It’s good enough and unless you go out of your way to be picky you won’t even notice.

Games run smoothly, network works fine, bluetooth is fine, audio is fine if you use external speakers. Sure the internal speaker is much like a laptop but what do you expect?

Watching movies with MX is a pleasant experience especially with those external speakers UNLESS you try and play x which will lead to a hopeless scenario of frozen frames.

Also some hi-def YouTube clips will also drop frames such as Gangnam Style. Clearly the graphics hardware is not up to hires movies, so if that’s what you need you’d better look elsewhere.

I haven’t tried the camera under All conditions yet but I have fiddled with all the settings and it appears that the camera on this unit is VERY poor. So poor in fact that I will not be using it.

But that’s ok for me, I bought a display device, not a camera. I’ve got plenty of those already. If you need a tablet with a decent camera you’d better look elsewhere. USB interface to the SD chip was effortless.

The only caveat being that the chip is partitioned, so you need to navigate up to the root and select the correct partition. This is simple to do and I had no trouble downloading 14GB of songs, books, comics, movies etc from my desktop.

I installed numerous apps of course and there was no problem there. This tablet is a great bargain! And don’t forget it comes with 3G limited to Telstra and resellers like Aldi.

It does what I need it for and it does it well. If you want to surf the net and fire off a few emails while watching the TV, or check your Facebook and play words with friends over a coffee, or watch a medium res movie or some YouTube in bed, or read a book on a tram, then this unit is for you.

If you like spending double for the sake of it then go visit your Apple store. When next posting, please use the paragraph key Hi all, could we get a roll call as to GPS working or not please.

Seems there is some working an some not. I will email bauhn with this info. Hunted Google for the info, and learned that Jelly Bean expects widgets to be installed to internal memory. I’d earlier set the install location to the SD card.

So the widget had been installed there. I use Optus and their resellers such as iinet. Can this lock be removed? GPS not working at all like the rest of you guys, guide frustrating.

Just another note to say I have mailed bauhn with the details of the GPS problem and links to this forum, when they reply I will post here. Here’s hoping they reply publicly. Keep replies coming as to whether you GPS is working or not please.

Thanks for that one Greg. I’ll send them an email as well. Everyone in this thread with GPS probs should do the same really. Got mine yesterday as well as the accessory pack.

It’s an alright tablet, nothing outstanding, but about what I would expect for the price. Screen is OK, not great. It will be fine for basic web browsing and everything, but if you want high def images and deep colour it will disappoint.

Cameras are not worth mentioning. Both are pretty poor quality. For anything other than basic Skype or internet chat they aren’t worth using. Browser runs smoothly without much lag.

Occasionally some lag, but nothing too bad. Gets decent signal and speed. Not the strongest signal, but not horrendous either. I haven’t tried any games yet, but I don’t expect it will be the greatest gaming machine.

Internal storage is a bit annoying. No idea why they partitioned it like they have. Could make it annoying with apps and whatnot. Location does not work. No matter what Location settings are turned on, it does not find location.

Just keeps giving an error saying the location could not be determined. All up, Not a bad device, but not stellar either. I am tossing up on whether to return mine or not.

While it will be fine for Web browsing, the low quality screen, issues with Video playback one of the main uses of mine, camera, and location services mean it is not fully functional for me.

I will give it another couple of days and then decide what to do, but I am leaning toward returning it. Just tested it with ‘GPS Status’. By the window it can find 2 satellites not enough for a fix but in the room it can’t find anything.

Put a Nexus 7 in the same spot and it gets a fix in a few seconds, and 10 satellites shortly after. However, I am seeing reduced performance on the N7 when put next to the running Aldi tablet.

Therefore I suspect RF interference of some kind preventing it from seeing all but the strongest signals. However, my microphone does not appear to be working. When I make a phone call, all that’s heard at the other end is crackly noise, when I mute it the other end goes blank.

However, if I plug in headphones with a mic in them they work fine. I can’t find any setting other than dual microphone which doesn’t change the result. Otherwise I am very happy with the tab.

The pad is pretty responsive and reasonably fast. I am not worried about HD video or gaming don’t do latter, this is just a cheap adjunct to my touchscreen WIN8 laptop which is my portable working tool.

This is really just for lounging around at home or elsewhere surfing the web, making calls, messaging etc and light duties like that. Good to throw in the pannier when touring on my motorbike replaces my sluggish netbook.

I wasn’t interested in spending much on a pad as it is just a toy with limited uses to me, so this fits the bill nicely — if the mic worked! Thanks Jennifur, the numbers didnt mean anything to me and I didnt realise the limitations of the Optus network.

Please, can somebody more knowledgeable provide some advice. I’m tempted to go buy a Galaxy Tab to physically compare, but not sure if anyone selling the Galaxy Tab is as good with returns as Aldi, if indeed I decide to keep the Bauhn.

Although the galaxy tab 2 is a dual-core tegra-2, I reckon it beats the quad-core qualcomm in the Aldi tablet. So, my guess is that on single-core speed, the Samsung will beat the Aldi.

Dual or quad configruation does not make too much of a difference in overall performance, in my opinion. The graphics GPU might also be better in the samsung can someone confirm that? I notice Officeworks have a pretty good return policy, so might grab one on the way home and compare them side-by-side.

Its in the menu under tools. My gps is still spotty, will pick up some sats outside but with VERY low strength. Compared to my SGS3 which gets more than double the number of sats and in less than 15 seconds.

Is it necessary to get a separate app. Anyone tried BS player yet? I have an N10 and that seems the only player to do a good job on p. Yes, do that please and let me know how the Samsung Galaxy Tab2 performs.

That 16GB built-in is tempting. My Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite is really annoying me. The available memory keeps reducing despite me not adding new apps. Tired of having to reset to factory and re-installing everything once in a while.

Done that 4 times since January. LOL — you may recall the GHz war with single core CPU’s in PC’s with ever climbing speeds — and then the dual core happened and suddenly the speed was much less important.

Believe me multiple cores DO make a difference when working hard — I have several Quad core tablets here and won’t be going back to dual core’s, let alone single core ones by choice.

GPS has come good on mine. Had the device on this morning, with backlight set to never time out, as I was installing the apps I regard as must haves on any Android device I own.

My tablet has been on, for about 3 hours straight. Just put mine back on charge. Battery was down to 14 percent, from starting at 75 percent this morning. So, for non-stop use, I think maybe 4 hours all told.

The previous aldi-tab had this issue as well, not even able to use wifi to locate itself skyhook database. When it works normally, it will download relevant information to lock within a matter of seconds.

So no one has a solution to the GPS as yet? It sucks that maps don’t work even with data: Reading that stuff last night, my opinion was that it was a load of garbage. This morning, however, that constant on solve is precisely what worked.

So it might be worth a shot. I had turned all the location stuff to on this morning before doing anything, and just left them on despite not doing any actual GPS stuff till I ran GPS Test.

Actually, they are around the same when it comes to performance. The Tegra 2 has an edge when it comes to GPU performance but it’s negligible. FYI, that’s what I ended up with after returning the Bauhn.

You are absolutely right, multiple cores do make a difference “when you are working hard AND if the applications make efficient usage of a multi-core architecture”.

I doubt if a tablet is ever going to be used that hard. Only if that single app makes proper use of the multi-core architecture, then you will benefit from it. Like games and graphics apps will probably benefit from that, but may benefit even more with a proper GPU.

Quad core is a nice marketing term, but only of interest for heavy apps, like 3d gaming to which this Aldi tablet is certainly not tailored for, seeing the poor graphics performance.

As already said before, the Aldi tablet is a nice tablet just as long as you do not expect high-performance. Recently in country Vic it either worked on or switched to 2G and she didn’t notice.

So I’d say is enough for Optus unless you live in a small country town or rural. I don’t know what Optus’s “dual band roll-out” means for possible withdrawal of service but I’d guess that there isn’t enough bandwidth in most urban areas to withdraw leaving only and it would lose only customers as well.

However, you might well find a hole in metro coverage that is missed by but not by Where I used to live 10km from Melb CBD used to be in a Voda hole as every 2nd tradie who came to the house discovered.

I was playing Real Racing 3 last night on it. So does that mean if you put in a 32GB card it then becomes a 36GB tablet, if so then thats an extra bonus as well. Its actually only using the internal 2GB partition, not the external SD card.

So its limited to 2GB until someone roots it and stuffs around with it some more.. No that’s not true.. You can set where you want apps to be installed on SD card if you wish, You can move most apps that have already been installed on internal storage to SD card and you can set the default storage to be the SD card.

Anyone tell me why I get spell check with GMail and not messaging.. I thought this was standard with Android? It sounds like a dumb gps, that can’t contact wifi towers, phone towers or get satellite info via internet data.

To test if the gps is really fixed you would turn gps off, travel a number of km’s then turn on again. If it locks fast again then it really did fix it. Maybe Aldi has implemented a new version of Android that allows people to install their apps anywhere they like When you copy a movie or show it will result in 3 files showing up on your PC with the same name but different file extensions.

I also opened another folder to show the movies on my PC hard drive. I then created a new sub-folder in my PC folder imaginatively called “movies” but left it empty.

Then I dragged and dropped the ‘movies folder across into the SD card folder. So now I had 3 sub-folders in my SD card folder. Then I dragged and dropped the 3 files for each movie from the PC hard drive across into my ‘movies’ sub-folder in the tablet.

Had no problem with movie transfer and playback. There you go, my biggest was 3. I will try an over 4GB file when I can to test how it goes. Yep sdcard0 os the sd card it’s using.

That’s the 2GB partition. Sdcard1 is the external card, it’s not using that. It’s partly why google took the SD card out of android, too difficult for people to manage memory. Won’t be able to give that idea for a test, a go till next week.

More thorough testing is always good. Other stuff, I’ve done a bit of trying out the BT on the tablet. I paired the BT speaker stand with the tablet, very mediocre sound.

I also paired my Plantronics Pulsar BT headset with the tablet. No problems with using the A2DP headset controls to run the media players. I need to figure out how to stop the tablet immediately searching for already paired devices as soon as the BT is switched on.

True, and it probably should be in the Accessories pack as a bit of value-add. Is the cover which comes in the accessories pack any good? Any suggestion for an alternative cover?

I got an OTG cable: The blue light on the portable HDD is flashing so it looks like it is okay. I have tapped on the “File Explorer” app which brings up a list of 13 folders. I’ve tapped on many of them but can’t find the portable drive or its contents: I’ve gone into ‘settings’ then ‘storage’ but cannot see the portable HDD listed only can see internal storage and device storage and SD card.

It’s ok, nothing brilliant though. My cover, for some reason bows outwards over the hole for the front facing camera. Also, I can’t convince the tablet to sit squarely in the cover, it’s always at a slight angle.

That makes it off centre for the front facing camera. Sorry not the situation here, Using the default file explorer I see sdcard0 has my movies and photos and has currently If you can use a usb stick first and see files on it, your problem is the amount of power to the drive.

I see sdcard0 has my movies and photos and has currently What is the user tree and where is it found? My portable HDD is self-powered no external power needed and it just has the one usb cable connection to plug into the PC usb port.

I have also tried connecting some 8GB and 64GB stick usb drives but they are not showing up either. I did ring bauhn and they said as soon as I plug the usb stick in it should automatically open a window on the tablet — but not on mine lol.

You will then be able to move apps from internal memory to the 16GB SD card. This is confirmed by going into the Manage Apps option. Although it works fine on a Nexus Google maps find the location but when opening Google Earth it says “finding location” and just hangs forever.

Looks like that might be the problem. After shutting the tablet down and then trying my old usb sticks, they work. Oh well, will just have to transfer as much data as I can to my old usb sticks — but at least it is now solved: How did you manage to convince it to swap around the internal and external SD cards?

You can then check what apps are on the external card by You cannot move all the existing apps but from a quick fiddle I moved facebook, twitter, skype, Aldi.. Possibly more but have run out of time today..

Ask around and see if anyone has a usb y power cable and try it out. It sounds like your HDD needs to be in fat32 format to work also. Also tried some gyro calibration apps, I’m out 18 degrees when in portrait but spot on in landscape, can only calibrate when specific app open, not the actual tablets calibration.

PS my GPS locked straight away. Stay and sleep in air-conditioned or screened rooms. Use a bed net if the area where you are sleeping is exposed to the outdoors. What type of insect repellent should I use?

Products with one of the following active ingredients can also help prevent mosquito bites. Higher percentages of active ingredient provide longer protection. What should I do if I am bitten by bugs?

Avoid scratching bug bites, and apply hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion to reduce the itching. Check your entire body for ticks after outdoor activity. Be sure to remove ticks properly.

What can I do to avoid bed bugs? Stay alert to changing weather conditions and adjust your plans if conditions become unsafe. Prepare for activities by wearing the right clothes and packing protective items, such as bug spray, sunscreen, and a basic first aid kit.

Consider learning basic first aid and CPR before travel. Bring a travel health kit with items appropriate for your activities. Heat-related illness, such as heat stroke, can be deadly.

Eat and drink regularly, wear loose and lightweight clothing, and limit physical activity during high temperatures. If you are outside for many hours in heat, eat salty snacks and drink water to stay hydrated and replace salt lost through sweating.

Protect yourself from UV radiation: Be especially careful during summer months and at high elevation. Because sunlight reflects off snow, sand, and water, sun exposure may be increased during activities like skiing, swimming, and sailing.

Very cold temperatures can be dangerous. Dress in layers and cover heads, hands, and feet properly if you are visiting a cold location. Stay safe around water Swim only in designated swimming areas.

Obey lifeguards and warning flags on beaches. Practice safe boating—follow all boating safety laws, do not drink alcohol if driving a boat, and always wear a life jacket. Do not dive into shallow water.

Do not swim in freshwater in developing areas or where sanitation is poor. Avoid swallowing water when swimming. Untreated water can carry germs that make you sick. To prevent infections, wear shoes on beaches where there may be animal waste.

Keep away from animals. Follow these tips to protect yourself: Do not touch or feed any animals you do not know. Do not allow animals to lick open wounds, and do not get animal saliva in your eyes or mouth.

Avoid rodents and their urine and feces. Traveling pets should be supervised closely and not allowed to come in contact with local animals. If you wake in a room with a bat, seek medical care immediately.

Bat bites may be hard to see. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, immediately: Wash the wound with soap and clean water. Go to a doctor right away. Tell your doctor about your injury when you get back to the United States.

Reduce your exposure to germs. Follow these tips to avoid getting sick or spreading illness to others while traveling: Wash your hands often, especially before eating. If you need to touch your face, make sure your hands are clean.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve not your hands when coughing or sneezing. Try to avoid contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, stay home or in your hotel room, unless you need medical care.

Avoid sharing body fluids. Diseases can be spread through body fluids, such as saliva, blood, vomit, and semen. Use latex condoms correctly. Do not inject drugs. People take more risks when intoxicated.

Do not share needles or any devices that can break the skin. That includes needles for tattoos, piercings, and acupuncture. If you receive medical or dental care, make sure the equipment is disinfected or sanitized.

Know how to get medical care while traveling. Plan for how you will get health care during your trip, should the need arise: Carry a list of local doctors and hospitals at your destination.

Review your health insurance plan to determine what medical services it would cover during your trip. Consider purchasing travel health and medical evacuation insurance.

Carry a card that identifies, in the local language, your blood type, chronic conditions or serious allergies, and the generic names of any medications you take. Some prescription drugs may be illegal in other countries.

Bring all the medicines including over-the-counter medicines you think you might need during your trip, including extra in case of travel delays. Ask your doctor to help you get prescriptions filled early if you need to.

Walking Be smart when you are traveling on foot. Use sidewalks and marked crosswalks. Pay attention to the traffic around you, especially in crowded areas. Remember, people on foot do not always have the right of way in other countries.

Choose official taxis or public transportation, such as trains and buses. Ride only in cars that have seatbelts. Avoid overcrowded, overloaded, top-heavy buses and minivans.

Avoid riding on motorcycles or motorbikes, especially motorbike taxis. Many crashes are caused by inexperienced motorbike drivers. Choose newer vehicles—they may have more safety features, such as airbags, and be more reliable.

Choose larger vehicles, which may provide more protection in crashes. Think about the driver. Do not drive after drinking alcohol or ride with someone who has been drinking. Consider hiring a licensed, trained driver familiar with the area.

Arrange payment before departing. Follow basic safety tips. Wear a seatbelt at all times. Sit in the back seat of cars and taxis. When on motorbikes or bicycles, always wear a helmet.

Bring a helmet from home, if needed. Avoid driving at night; street lighting in certain parts of Indonesia may be poor. Do not use a cell phone or text while driving illegal in many countries.

Travel during daylight hours only, especially in rural areas. If you choose to drive a vehicle in Indonesia, learn the local traffic laws and have the proper paperwork.

Get any driving permits and insurance you may need. Check with your auto insurance policy’s international coverage, and get more coverage if needed. Make sure you have liability insurance. Flying Avoid using local, unscheduled aircraft.

If possible, fly on larger planes more than 30 seats ; larger airplanes are more likely to have regular safety inspections. Try to schedule flights during daylight hours and in good weather.

Medical Evacuation Insurance If you are seriously injured, emergency care may not be available or may not meet US standards. Traffic flows on the left side of the road in Indonesia. Always pay close attention to the flow of traffic, especially when crossing the street.

Before you leave Research your destination s, including local laws, customs, and culture. Monitor travel warnings and alerts and read travel tips from the US Department of State. Leave a copy of your itinerary, contact information, credit cards, and passport with someone at home.

Pack as light as possible, and leave at home any item you could not replace. While at your destination s Carry contact information for the nearest US embassy or consulate. Carry a photocopy of your passport and entry stamp; leave the actual passport securely in your hotel.

Might pop up to aldi and pick one up. Maybe geek son can explain it to me when I see him. Its benefit is you can hang nearly any USB device on an Android device. Typing this on it. In terms of using the tablet as a WiFi tether source, it should be easy and standard Android.

Enjoy Your Vacation Zika: Very true, I’ve got several droid devices with 4GB or less internal memory and it is never a problem, but if I were a young gamer I’d probably feel the pinch quite bad due to the huge size of some games. It varies across brands and models. I have tapped on the “File Explorer” app which brings up a list of 13 folders.

Many years ago when I bought one of Aldi’s special laptops, I rocked up at about 8: I have read posts in the other earlier model’s thread It is big but he copes quite well and much better than on his mum’s iPhone.

Benchmark-wise isn’t too bad, SunSpider 0. A colleague of mine bought one of these, and if we call the tablet from a particular mobile an iPhone 5 on Telstra the tablet will reboot on taking the call. Pack as light as possible, and leave at home any item you could not replace. See…
