Mooch 9" Android (Living Social)

Hi,

I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than I could advise me whether this is a good deal or not.


https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/8...android-tablet

I'm looking at it for myself - mainly would be used for browsing, email, FB and of course candy crush!

Any advice appreciated.

I had one. It's a generic, cheap chinese tablet. It will work but it's low quality, the connectors have a tendency to break, the power button can snap off, the battery lasts an hour to an hour and a half if you're lucky. Anything but really basic games run slow.

If you really want one though, the exact same tablet is on Amazon and eBay for £49.99 (about €59). That "€251 value" statement on the website is bull....

I am so glad I read this. I thought it might be Chinese. Lidl are doing a 7 inch tablet with a case and detachable keyboard this week for 99 Euro.
