Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews The software is fairly vanilla Android with little bloatware, which I appreciate. Performance is mediocre - apps take a few seconds to load and there's some lag at times. The display is decent but the viewing angles could be better. The speakers deliver clear audio but aren't very loud. For gaming, Subway Surfers loaded slowly but then ran smoothly. The cameras capture good quality video and images.

User Reviews 2 The Joy Tab 2 exceeded my expectations. Compared to the lackluster original, this sequel model is much zippier with its upgraded 3GB RAM. It handles light gaming and multitasking reasonably smoothly. The quad-core processor and HD display deliver solid performance for social media, web browsing, and streaming video.
Connectivity is a key selling point. The LTE capability keeps you online anywhere, though I didn't test it out. Still, it's great for truckers or frequent travelers. The 4000mAh battery also promises ample runtime for entertainment on the go.

User Reviews 3 For kids, the robust parental controls allow tailored app access. Personally, I leverage the long battery life and constant 4G access to write YouTube videos on the go. Overall the Joy Tab 2 punches above its weight for the cost. It handles social media, videos and light gaming just fine for budget shoppers.
