A tablet like no other
Customer Reviews of HTC Flyer 7" Tablet, Qualcomm Snapdragon (1.5GHz), 16GB Storage, Android 2.3 - Refurbished
Quality Tablet Nice Pen Functions10/12/2012
Excellent tablet with pen function. Specs a little lean but this is one of the first quality tablets in the market. Good value
pleased with transaction & item10/4/2012
The tablet arrived in great condition with only the tiniest of scratches on the side (it's a refurbished item) and fully charged. I have used it rather non-stop all week and am pleased with it. My only complaint would be that the Flyer does seem to have less battery life than I would like. It's fine with casual, non-media usage but watch a movie and the battery level will plunge below 30% in no time. Thankfully, I didn't get this tablet for movies. I wanted to take notes, draw & check email/RSS.
i really like it everything runs pretty well and the stylus pen is great for drawing.
The small, slim HTC Flyer almost looks like an Apple product. Silver, white and black make up the device's basic colors. HTC hasn't yet equipped its product with the latest Android 3.0 Honeycomb in terms of operating system. Instead, Gingerbread runs on the tablet. The Taiwanese manufacturer thus still relies on Android 2.3.3 at the moment. However, it has a modified HTC Sense surface. An update to Android 3 is to be available for the HTC in the near future.
This tablet has all the features of Kindle/ Nook yet also includes two cameras , Android Market for apps and the bonus feature of a digitizer pen. Comes with 16 g of storage upgradable to 32. Honeycomb upgrade will be out shortly. We have a few tablets and both the HTC Flyer and HTC Evo view 4G are great. Go do your homework and compare the specs. These tablets are 5 star!
Awesome little tablet5/16/2012
I've been using this tablet for quite a while before writing this review. The pros are solid and outstanding design, easy to use operating system, comes with a third-party warranty. Yet, the main con is the short battery life, only lasting around 6 hours. Other slight drawbacks are the finger-prints on the screen, not coming with a stylus. However, I am very satified with this tablet, small but strong.
LOVE THIS, why did sprint stop selling this, way better then the ones they have on hand now (i have tried them all)
A GREAT little tablet, but mostly for artists and note-takers... There are many specifications-based reviews out there on the Flyer, so I won't repeat those, and instead base this write-up off of my experience with HTC's device over the last few weeks. I have to start this review by saying that I've been a tablet PC user for years, and have found many recreational and business related uses for computers that have active pen input.
Perfect tablet for me. Fast and efficient its awesome!
HTC Flyer very good so far...3/25/2012
I bought HTC Flyer couple of weeks back , a Refurbished one. Pros : Straight out of the box. It works very good and fast , Though its 2.3 Ginger bread OS (I am not sure about Honeycomb , Heard its like WINDOWS VISTA a not so good one , We may miss ICS) The battery life is good as mentioned. Cons : HTC Stylus pen not part of and costly. The Charger port is little damaged I think , probably thats the part refurbished? Overall It's good buy.
Excellent Value in a tablet!3/23/2012
Perfect size to hold in one hand and great display, sound, and battery life. Accepts 32GB microSD cards. Upgrades to Android 3.2. Available accessories like the HTC stylus and the HTC HDMI connector are a bonus! Have not had any issues with the unit or any apps so far. Wonderful refurbished unit and a great value!
Work great and fast ,but is it had 16GB like they say?
I bought one for my mom as an ipad alternative. When it came in, I played with it a bit to make sure it worked properly, get a feel for it, etc. I liked it so much I bought one for myself, even though I already have a nook color (which works very much like a tablet). I love how fast it is to get to a forecast - faster even than turning on my TV and navigating to the weather channel! This is a great bargain and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Very solid tablet3/21/2012
I chose this tablet for our workforce due to its reputation for stability. In the forums that I researched before purchasing this particular tab, one user showed a screen capture of his device showing 71 days uptime without a reboot. Compared to a lot of other tablets and mfg's ROMS, this is incredible. These have a very solid feel as well. These are very easily rooted for further customization for whatever your particular needs are.
Great 7" Tablet3/20/2012
If you have an HTC smart phone, there is not learning curve here. It is a great unit, Fast, not at all sluggish, you can add an SD card. i saved an MP4 movie on the card, dropped it in the tablet and it played great! It has long battery life and is built solid. Good job HTC!
To me it is the perfect size to keep by the bed or take with me. The unit is solid in the design and feel. I applied the Honeycomb update as soon as it was available (late Dec 2011). I'm very pleased with the way HTC implemented Honeycomb. A few things that are questionable. First, there is an SD slot, but you cannot move APPS to the SD card. It can store files like music, photos and videos. This is disappointing. However, I have not come close to filling up the 16 GB storage on the tablet
HTC Flyer 7"3/15/2012
Really great 7" tablet as good as new, just no manual. Looks great and works fast.
looks and works great.... except the charger3/14/2012
got my HTC flyer today, pleased with the item but not their quality control. My charger is completelly unusable, i had to go out and buy a new one to replace the one they sent, it was broken pins and bent.... looks like no one bothered to check the unit before shipping it out. at least im glad the actual tablet works.
THE Best offer in a Tablet!2/26/2012
Looked for a year before deciding. NOTHING comes close to touching this offer on the HTC Flyer! Perfect size, Android 2.3, excellent graphics, speed and sound. My friends with the others (Ipad, Galaxy, etc.) are constantly asking to borrow my HTC. The 1.5Ghz is blazing fast, haven't met an Android app that doesn't work. Didn't come with a USB cable or manual but downloaded manual from HTC and ordered cable. But, don't need the cable if YOU (MUST) GET "Software Data Cable" for free - awesome.
Excellent Small Form Factor Tablet2/16/2012
Bought my Flyer from Best Buy about 6 months ago. My wife has an original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7". And I also have an iPad 2. So I have some other equipment to compare it to. First, I love the 7" form factor. To me it is the perfect size to keep by the bed or take with me. The unit is solid in the design and feel. I applied the Honeycomb update as soon as it was available (late Dec 2011). I'm very pleased with the way HTC implemented Honeycomb. A few things that are questionable. First, there is an SD slot, but you cannot move APPS to the SD card. It can store files like music, photos and videos. This is disappointing. However, I have not come close to filling up the 16 GB storage on the tablet. Second, I purchased the stylus. It does work, but with limitations. For the most part you are able only use it for the Notes app. There are some other minor ways to use it (screen capture and mark up), but I'm disappointed by the lack of stylus integration. Other than that, I'm completely sold on the Flyer. In fact my iPad 2 is being used by my daughter as I really like the Flyer better.
