I'd like to second this, a lot of manufacturers these days will offer a decent budget range of devices, so there's really no need to go down the route of buying Chinese, knock offs as you called them.Nope. Don't do it. That's my tip. Flagship tablets from bona fide Chinese manufacturers are often fine, but if you're buying something that costs less than $100, then you're probably going to get a terrible device. It's easy to make the hardware sound great, but chances are high that you'll be getting a sluggish, poorly built device with bad battery life. I wouldn't go that route.
I think in the case of technology, you certainly get what you pay for. If you want a device that's going to do everything, get all the latest updates, with a decent build quality, then your going to have to pay for the privilege.You get what you pay for! Only buy it if you want a temporary solution. These don't last that long, if they do at all.
I agree on this one. If you can't afford the pricey ones, don't try to buy the knockoffs. Either buy something that's cheap but still you know the brand instead of the Chinese replica. If you want something really bad, you have to work for it.You get what you pay for! Only buy it if you want a temporary solution. These don't last that long, if they do at all.
