So those were the features and specs, it's now time for my review. Let's just start with why I would not buy the Zeki tablet again. 

  1. To me, it's a fake wannabe android tablet and the reason I say this is because for me to consider an Android to be Android, it must have Google Play Store, not some weird mall or store that doesn't seem to respond or work 1/2 the time. 
  2. The mall that it comes with to purchase & download apps just sucks. It doesn't respond well and seems to freeze quite often. The only upside to this is that Amazon App Store is preloaded.
  3. I don't like how warm it can get just from charging or using the tablet, I feel like it could cook an egg, though it's probably not possible but I'm not going to attempt that. 
It is a nice tablet and isn't super laggy, but some games lag more than other. I like that it is small so it is easy for younger/smaller hands to hold. Other than that, there's not much to say. The plus is yes you can download Google Play onto this Zeki but for one it is very hard to find online and second it's illegal, don't ask me why either because I am not going there.
