- Poor battery life
- Low screen resolution.
- Awful camera performance
Depending on your level of expertise when it comes to gadgets, the NextBook Premium8Hi tablet may end up either impressing or disappointing you. For one thing, its screen is neither too big nor too small. And while its price isn't that expensive, it's not the cheapest tablet available out there either.
Most reviews describe the Premium8Hi as a middle-of-the-road device with one or two possible deal breakers. One is the terrible pair of built-in cameras. If you intend to use this tablet for video chat or any other similar activities, you can just forget it. As one review mentions, it just isn’t suited for these things.
And then there’s the one thing that holds it back according to most experts and even normal users: the absolutely horrendous battery life. According to reviews, it takes approximately 5 hours to charge but only lasts around 3 hours “if you’re lucky.”
Still, those who originally planned to use it as an e-book reader found great joy in how much more it is able to do. The large, color IPS screen probably helps a lot here, as does the use of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. If the above-mentioned flaws aren’t enough to dissuade you, critics suggest you’ll be in for a mostly mediocre device with an average price.
