    This review is from: Pyle Astro PTBL9C 9-Inch 8 GB Tablet (Personal Computers)

    Customer Video Review Length:: 2:11 Mins

    For a tablet that sells for less than $100, the Astro is serious competition to the more expensive Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ tablet.

    But wow. The Astro can do so much more. It is the same length, but slightly narrower, with a similar size viewing area (Astro: 7 ¾” x 4 3/8″; Fire: 7 ½” x 4 ¾”). It has a micro SD slot (none in the Fire), and a front and rear-facing camera (only front-facing for the Fire).

    I can customize it so much more easily, starting with the desktop (reminds me of my Windows desktop) and the addition of some cool wallpaper. The wallpapers included could be ordinary, or like the one I used, super-extraordinary. It’s 3-D: leaves falling on water with a reflection of the tree above. The water ripples in response to our touch. Amazing.

    Screen responsiveness is good. Occasionally, it sticks or lags but not a problem enough to put a dent in my enjoyment.

    The rear camera casts a bit of a shadow from the case along the left side of the image. Still, that’s better than no rear camera (i.e., Kindle Fire). The front camera suffers no obstructions. Photos and videos come in clear.

    The first thing I did was load up all the apps I bought for my Kindle Fire from the Amazon App store. Most of them work on this Android. It’s so nice that I don’t have to buy them all over again. I then went to Google Play to load up on more apps. I like having two stores to choose from.

    All the apps work exactly as they should. I don’t have problems with the unit crashing.

    Of course, the Fire does score points in some areas. Connecting to Wi-Fi on the Astro takes a little patience. I solved that problem by setting the Astro to always be connected, even when sleeping. That way, I don’t have to wait for the Wi-Fi to turn on.

    The video is not as vibrant and is sometimes more pixilated than on the Fire. Honestly, I only noticed the depth of color because I’m comparing them for a review.

    Sound is not as full and somewhat tinny on the Astro, but I don’t use tablets for music. It is plenty adequate for the browsing and games that I do. With an earphone, the sound is much better.

    Battery life is very good. I can play on it for hours at a time. Considering Wi-Fi is always on, even when sleeping, I am impressed. When compared to the Fire, I don’t notice myself recharging any more often than usual.

    PROS:
    + forward and rear-facing cameras
    + micro SD slot
    + Android OS, fully customizable
    + comes with screen protector installed
    + excellent value for the money (less than $100 as of this writing)
    + screen is responsive, great performance (good for surfing, games, email, apps)
    + smaller than the Fire HD 8.9″ tablet, but about the same viewing area
    + good battery life
    + Wi-Fi capable

    CONS:
    - sound is not full, a little tinny, much better with earphones
    - video not as rich as more expensive systems but I consider it more than good enough for most applications
    - couldn’t test micro SD card (Astro said card was defective, but it works on PC)
    - micro SD card easily inserted wrong, easily falls out when inserted correctly.
    - rear-facing camera casts a shadow on the lens
    - lacks Bluetooth

    Yes, I own the Fire HD. I love it. Amazon is my friend. If I wasn’t such an Amazon devotee, I’d buy the Astro in a heartbeat. It’s an amazing value for the price, and in many ways, it beats the Fire. I feel like a traitor saying that.

    I’d most definitely buy the Astro for my kids. As a matter of fact, my kids use this and my original Kindle Fire to play Minecraft against (with?) each other. The Astro doesn’t come with parental controls installed, but there’s an app for that. I use Kapersky. It’s free.

    The kids say performance is exactly the same as the original Kindle Fire. They are perfectly happy with the Astro. I am, too.

    Pyle tablet does a serviceable job. Comparison with other tablets included, June 11, 2013

    This review is from: Pyle Astro PTBL9C 9-Inch 8 GB Tablet (Personal Computers)

    In case someone reads just the first few lines of this review, let me start by saying that the technical specs for this tablet under Amazon product description contain several errors, the main one being the number of cores in the processor of this tablet. I note the errors and corrections at the end of the review and I notified the seller.

    As a background for this review, I am a fairly heavy tablet user. We own three tablets: Nexus 7, Galaxy 7.7, and iPad Mini which we use for navigation, music streaming, game playing, reading, browsing, listening to internet radio and so forth. I received Pyle Astro Tablet from the manufacture for testing, evaluation and review. In my review I will compare my experiences with these tablets, especially the Android tablets, to Pyle Astro Tablet.

    Given the price difference between the tablets (the Pyle Astro Tablets is under $100 at the time I am writing this review) any comparison must start with a price. Pyle Astro Tablet is less than half of the cheapest tablet listed above. It is a real bargain. The question is what are the main practical differences between the Pyle Astro Tablet and the other three tablets I mentioned.

    ✔ 1. The display resolution (which is 800 x 480) and brightness. In practical terms it means that even though Pyle tablet has a larger physical screen it will fit less on the screen than a display with a higher resolution. Reduced brightness means it is harder to read in the bright sun. I found that the image on the screen looks washed out at more angles than my other tablets. However, if you hold the tablet at the right angle and not in the bright sun the screen is acceptable. This is the biggest difference, and given the price difference it is a reasonable compromise.
    I am attaching a collage of 2 photos, showing Pyle Astro tablet next to Galaxy 7.7 tablet (which has screen resolution 1280 x 800 pixels) so you can compare the display. The photos can be located by following ‘customer photos’ link under the main photo.

    ✔ 2. The processor of this tablet is not as powerful as the processors in my other tablets. It also comes with a relatively small amount memory (512MB). In practical terms it means it is a bit more sluggish than the tablets I compared it to. Doing the same operation on Pyle Astro Tablet and Galaxy 7.7 tablet (which runs the same version of the operating system) Pyle tablet took longer. To be specific, things take longer to display. For example, when I need to enter something the on-screen keyboard takes a bit longer to appear than with the other tablets. When I install something it takes a bit longer and so forth.

    ✔ 3. This tablet does not have a bluetooth capability. In my day-to-day usage of the tablets I use bluetooth quite a bit. I use bluetooth speaker when we use the tablet to navigate, for streaming music or audio books. I also use a bluetooth keyboard when I am doing a lot of typing on my tablet during travel. Whether missing bluetooth functionality is a deal breaker depends on whether you plan to use bluetooth devices.

    ✔ 4. The tablet is running Android 4.0.4 operating system. I tested many of the apps I use on my Galaxy 7.7 tablet and most of the worked with the exception of TuneIn Radio which gave me a message that it is not compatible with this device. Surprising! Pandora radio did work just fine. The error tells me that there is a potential that some apps will not work on this tablet even when they work with other tablets running Android 4.0.4.

    ✔ 5. I found the touch screen to be a little less responsive than my other tablets. Perhaps this could be explained by the slower processor rather than the screen itself. However, the responsiveness of the touch screen is something that you get used to and learn to use effectively relatively quickly.

    With the price tag of under $100 Pyle Astro tablet performed rather well for a budget tablet. Whether you are on a budget or want to get a tablet for youngster this tablet will do a serviceable job.

    Technical specification errors as of 6/11/2013
    ================================================
    I am an engineer so several mistakes in the technical spec jumped out at me and caused me to look for another version of the spec, which I found on the Pyle Audio web site. This second version of the spec appears to be accurate. I am including that version after noting the errors.

    1. Errors in the manufacture and processor description.

    Processor: 1.2 GHz A-Series Quad-Core A8
    ➨ ➨ A8 is an ARM processor and Intel does not make ARM processors at the current time

    Very good friend for long distance traveling, July 6, 2013
    By 

    This review is from: Pyle Astro PTBL9C 9-Inch 8 GB Tablet (Personal Computers)

    The display of this tablet is the ideal display for me. I mean the 7″ display is not enough for a quality display of videos and pictures. As a book reader the 9″ display does a better job than a 7″. Yet this beautiful tablet PC does not weight, not even an ounce than an ordinary 7″ tablet. Very good friend for long distance traveling. I can listen to music, watch films or video songs or even chat with my friends with this tablet. Battery life is also ideal for a long distance travel. It usually stands up to 6-7 hours and that amount is enough to cover many long distance travels. Graphic card is also good. It supports many games. Only problem with this tablet PC is the lack of hard disk capacity. It is not even nearly enough. I use a New 32gb Micro Sd Card Sdhc Tf Flash Memory Card 32gb Class 10, New! Usa! Memory chip to overcome that problem. This card is amazingly supporting this tablet PC.
