D2 Pad

I was looking through the weekly circular ad for Big Lots yesterday when I came across a tablet called the D2 Pad. I’m usually very skeptical about Android tablets from small companies that are sold discount stores, but I decided to take a chance on the D2. It comes with Android 4.1.1 pre-installed, and the reviews I’ve seen online about other D2 tablets have been mostly positive. So is this $89.99 tablet destined for the nearest landfill, or is it actually good enough for those looking for an entry level Android tablet? 

In the video below, I unbox the D2 Pad and go over a lot of its features. You’ll find out about the tablet’s build quality, how it handles games, the unique feature of its video player, the web browsing experience and more. In my short time with the tablet, I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised with how well it performs. Granted it’s not as fast as some name brand Android tablets, but the actual lag is minimal. I have yet to experience any freezing or anything that made the software unusable.

The design of the D2 Pad is reminiscent of the Kindle Fire. It has a 7-inch 800×600 resolution display with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It’s also meant to be held in landscape mode due to the positioning of the 0.3 megapixel front facing camera.

Here are the tablet’s specs:

  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 7-inch 800×600 display
  • 1.2 GHz Rockchip processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4GB of expandable Flash memory
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • Wi-Fi

    I’ve found mine works fairly well. I’ve been using it to watch video files I’ve stored on my desktop. I’ve also been able to get TV on it using the desktop as a server and xbmc on the D2. The only trouble I’ve really had was with Skype, which worked after installing an older version (the problem was with Skype), and the limited onboard memory limiting how many apps I can install.
