10 cores, but only 2 are "fast" cores; and they're a 2015 model with the medium speed cores identical and only marginally higher clocked than the slow cores. Mediatek hardware elephantry at its finest. Dead | X|

It's still probably an upgrade from an Amazon Kindle because they're absolute race to the bottom junk unsuited for anything but shopping from home or watching CatTube Prime Cat Video (no GApps on Amazon devices out of the box D'Oh! | :doh: ).

I have no experience with that model but do have a different no-name android tablet from China because of the huge hole on the market between Amazon's race to the bottom garbage and Samsung's compete with Apple on high price models. You definitely need to do your research and find some reviews before buying because quality on these devices is all over the map.

PS Thanks for linking this though, elsewhere I know a few people elsewhere who have been looking for replacements for older Android 7" tablets that don't massively suck; a year or two back and couldn't find anything with better specs than the Nexus 7's they wanted to replace. Assuming the screen isn't a train wreck this should fit the bill of better than that at least.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
