R8 is an awesome tablet!
My summary, if you want to save sometime reading the whole thing:
Big Positive: this Dragon Touch Elite R8 has a razor-sharp HD screen, slight weight, ultra-smooth performance, satisfying battery life, micro SD, and this price makes it an affordable “Android iPad mini” on the market.
So-so: Android 4.3 is not available on it for now. Compared to other tablets, the back is missing the soft grippy texture which I like, screen colors are bright but a little accuracy lack, charging the tablet takes a bit long.
Overall: Astonishing performance and affordable price gives this tablet the talent to be a shiny star in the market.
Most people like iPad mini because it is small enough to hold in one hand and powerful enough for daily entertainment. I can not believe my eyes when I saw the pictures on Amazon because this is just like an iPad mini, which turns out to be true. The design of this tablet is a replication of iPad mini, without…
Better than the iPad Mini
Love this tablet
I received the tablet on time and it was packaged well. Unfortunately, I had and issue with it, and had to return it. After contacting the seller, I received an email with instructions to follow in order to return it. Their questions were fair and easy to answer. They included a RMA form and return shipping label. I informed them via email that the package was mailed and included a question. They promptly responded with the answer I was hoping for and said their technician will test my returned item and my return request (replacement) will be processed in 5 business days after we receive your returned package, which is outstanding.
Other than my issue I am extremely impressed with the performance and quality of this tablet. I am a retired IT person and understand things happen. I am most impressed with the customer service department and their attention to detail and willingness to provide prompt courteous response.

What is IPS?
IPS stands for in-plane switching. An IPS-LCD is a type of thin display that offers better viewing angles than TFT-LCDs. IPS-LCDs feature two transistors for each pixel, where TFT-LCDs use just one. This requires a more powerful backlight, which delivers more accurate colors, and allows the screen to be viewed from a wider angle. The downside is that an IPS-LCD may consume more power than a TFT-LCD. IPS-LCDs typically are found on high-end cell phones and portable devices. Apple’s iPhone and iPad both feature IPS-LCDs, so does Nexus 7 tablet.
