REVIEW – If you are a gadget nerd and techie like me, you probably have a bunch of mobile devices including tablets of various sizes and capabilities lying around your workspace. Despite that, I am always up for testing something new and if it offers additional convenience, then I am really interested.

So anyone who has ever owned a tablet should have a basic understanding of the simple set up process. This tablet is no different. When I took it out of the box it felt solid, and I liked the overall design. I plugged in the charger and charged it until it was fully charged and ready to go. Powering it on revealed a splash screen that showed the brand and that it is powered by Android. The screens below provide a good idea of the familiar setup process.

Once it was all set up, I put it through the paces of downloaded my email app, my TV viewing app, YouTube, Netflix, etc. I was pleasantly surprised that all of the apps perform relatively well. The only app that does hiccup at times and still does, it the Spectrum app which is live TV. Based on the good performance of Netflix and YouTube, I am not sure that the issue with the Spectrum app is a reflection of the capability of the tablet. Since I have seen this app have issues when used with Roku and Apple TV, I am still leaning towards giving the benefit of the doubt to the tablet.
I am not a gamer, so I cannot say much about the performance with games, but at this price point, this tablet performs well for the majority of everyday tasks. I did find that I got less battery life than I expected especially when using the Spectrum or Netflix apps as opposed to my iPad, but then again, the iPad is at least $1000 more than this tablet. I had no issues connecting to WiFi and Bluetooth nor did I with playback from a micro SD card. I really like that I can also save on the card. In addition, the USB port for data transfer is great. The touch screen is quite responsive and much better than several tablets that I have tested at this price point. RCA also includes the WPS Office app for document tasks.

The photo below shows the tablet in the reverse folded format, as I am watching TV via the Spectrum app.

The following video is an example of how the tablet manages live TV via the Spectrum app:

What I like

  • The build quality
  • The display
  • The detachable and reversible keyboard
  • The built-in USB and Micro SD card slot
  • The adequate touch screen response

What I’d change

  • Add a bit more processing power to keep it affordable but even a bit more capable
  • Better battery life

Final thoughts

When I consider the price point of this tablet with a keyboard, in my opinion, it is a good “bang for the buck”. It is responsive and capable of handling most everyday tasks including watching videos. The versatility of the removable keyboard and the fact that it does not have to be charged separately is great. It has a nice display and while it is may not be 100% ideal for major gaming or processes that require major resources, it can certainly fit the EDC needs of many, including the casual user. Good value!!

  5. I did not get an instruction manual with my, RCA 11 Delta Pro 11. Also, how can I connect to watch movies? No HMID port.

  6. This is an “overview” or “intro” at best. No benchmarks, no real tests, no speed measurements. I also read so many negative reviews on Amazon and HSN that I have a hard time believing this article.

    “No problems connecting to WIFI” is NOT a test! Please aim for a more in-depth and thorough review.

  7. . Much needed?? I need to buy a power source cord. I can’t find anywhere that carries this cord. How can I buy a cord. I forgot and left my cord at a motel while traveling. Please let me know how I can purchase a cord. Much needed.
