The Nextbook 8" Tablet at first glance appears to be just another run-of-the-mill tablet looking to be bought by those on a budget. Then, once activated and used, you begin to notice the little things about it; both good and bad. With an eight-inch screen running 720p it looks great most of the time, but can be a bit blurry for some high resolution videos and pictures. Likewise, the cameras, both the 2 MP back and .3 MP front, are usable but lower quality than one might expect.
The operating system is, luckily, Android, and comes with 4.1 Jelly Bean. It's simple to navigate by swiping side to side from page to page of apps then tapping the one you want. It also comes with Google Mobile Services but these remain largely untouched for lack of true applicability. The processor is a 1.5 GHz Arm Cortex A9 with 1 GHz of RAM, so it can handle multiple pages being open such as internet tabs, games, and such, though the impact of doing such will have a noticeable effect on speed.
By far the best aspect of this device is the memory. It comes with the standard 8 GB of memory on board, but can be expanded by MicroSD, something users have begged Apple to incorporate. This helps keep the price down to a lovely $99 and as such accessible to a wider audience.
The Nextbook 8" Tablet is no iPad, but for the price is a strong competitor. While it has its fair share of drawbacks such as the camera and power, it also has a wide range of versatility with a light punch to the wallet. This tablet is an easy buy for those looking for a cheap introduction to the wide world of tablet computers without taking too much of a monetary risk.
