3 Reasons why the DigiLand DL701Q Sucks

No Comments
you're probably wondering why I'm writing about some obscure piece of shit Android tablet that no one has ever heard of, and the reason is because its pissing me off. I bought this thing almost a year ago for around $50 at BestBuy thinking I was going to get a sweet deal, only to run into problem after problem that almost had me German suplexing this thing into the nearest industrial wood chipper.

1. Most of the games and apps crash.

Let's be honest, ladies and gentlemen; most tech savvy people would rather be caught by their parents in an awkward BDSM session than be seen dead with an off-brand tablet. The vast majority of people buying this thing are buying it for their kids, so they can do homework and, more importantly, play games. Too bad most of the games crash harder than the Titanic making out with an Iceberg.

The fact that this thing only has 512 megs of system RAM, Supplemented by a Dalvik Cache emulating the other 512MB of it on an internal memory that only has 8 Gigabytes of space is a recipe for disaster. The vast majority of the games I tested for my Review of the product on crashed less than two minutes into the game, whereas some of them crashed immediately after the loading screen. To makes matters worse, Firefox -Fucking Firefox- crashes regularly on this device, and so does the Swype Keyboard that I paid for, specifically for this device!

2. Its racist against Bluetooth devices

I bought this thing for the sole purpose of using it as a word processor. I needed a tiny laptop to write my articles with, and this was the only thing that made sense at the time. Anyway, I pair the shit, start writing, and 4 minutes later, not only did the keyboard I paired randomly disconnect 18 times in the course of a fucking hour,  it would hold down the"P" key and "SPACEBAR" for eternity, then disconnect, leaving me to have to go back to Settings>Bluetooth Devices and pair the fucking thing AGAIN after putting in the pin, and guess what? it didn't pair, so I had to do the shit again!!!!!!!! Then guess what happened?!?!?!!??! IT UNPAIRED THE FUCKING MOUSE I WAS JUST USING!!!!!!!!! FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3. Really bad hardware ruins the good hardware.

The graphics processor is nice, The Mediatek CPU isn't slow at all, yet with only 512MB of ram , and a touch sensor that is slightly more accurate than a Storm Trooper playing Lazer Tag, you could hardly call this a decent device. Also, the screen is shit. Sorry to say it, but if you view it from any angle other than sideways, and slightly tilted backward to the ceiling, you get more glare than staring directly into the surface of the sun, and with only thousands of colors, you can easily see patterns of pixels supplementing the lack of full color support that just about every other tablet in the known universe seems to have.

Now I know what You're thinking: Rage, why are you judging this thing by today's standards? don't you know this is a old budget tablet? The answer is no, I'm not judging this by today's standards. I'm judging this as a word processor. Companies like Apple and IBM had this shit on lock-down way back in 1978, and for a device like this to be so bad at it some 45 years later is just mind boggling.
