Hello

Thank you for your inquiry. All mobile internet devices are prone to freezing and network lag. To reduce the frequency of these occurances, please do the following:

(1) Ensure that all downloaded apps are previewed in regards to their recent reviews and permissions for known instability issues.
(2) Ensure that all downloaded apps are stored properly on the internal memory of the tablet.
(3) Ensure that apps that are not in use are forced closed and are not running in the background
(4) Ensure that your network connectivity can support mobile internet devices and that your bandwidth is strong enough to support multiple devices in the household.

For more information in regards to network lag, please contact your internet service provider.

Thanks!

It will only freeze and shut down if you put apps on it. Its garbage. Im returning it on May 31, 2013. If i told you wat is wrong with this tablet, you have pages and pages of me explaining whats wrong with it. The only thing else i need to tell you is that do not buy it because when u buy the warrenty filemate will not fix your tablet they will send you a check for the tablet then u lose the 15 buck from the warranty money. The internet is good though.

Yes, as long as it's an open wifi or you have the password, you can connect to any wifi and use it to access the internet, Facebook, etc. However, if you are not within wifi range, you can still play those games that do not require wifi accessiblity to play (i.e. Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, etc.)

Unless you root your tablet, moving apps to the sd card has been disabled as a feature in more recent versions of Android. Even if you use app2sd, it won't move any apps to the sd card on an unrooted tablet or phone.

Just to be clear, all apps must run from the 16GB internal card. You can store pictures, music, etc on the added memory.

Hello

Thanks for the inquiry.

Battery life can discharge rapidly if the user has one or more of the following occurring:
Live Wallpaper
WiFi constantly scanning and engaged
Brightness level set at maximum
Multiple apps running in the background
Streaming and/or playing a video

The user has many configuration options within the device and can make choices to install/run apps that either minimize or maximize battery life from one charging cycle to the next. Conserving battery capacity is a normal part of the end user mobile CE experience through their usage pattern. Leaving a unit connected to the charger constantly (topping off for extended periods) is not recommended; this is a typical reason why laptop batteries have shortened life spans for example. The Clear Tablet’s charging time via wall charger is about 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Charging time via Micro-USB to USB cable is about 6 hours.

Sincerely,

Hi

This depends on the user, and what applications are running. Normally, the battery can last about 6 to 8 hours with nominal apps running in the background and networking turned off.
