Question

My Nextbook 8 keeps locking up HELP

My nextbook 8 keeps locking up even after I reset it by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. I have had to do this several times. I have an additional 32gb sd card. I don't understand why it locks up and slows down like a slow motion turtle any help would be great.
I am thinking about returning it, but I love it. but can't handle this issue and can't find any information regarding the problem other than resetting it. I have five more days to return it before my 30 days is up.. Thanks

I've experienced a few freezes/seizes and it seems to be related to having several apps running and a hot battery when actively using the power cord. I'm not saying that's your situation, just saying.

I suggest you start using the provided app manager, which is call 'Task Killer'. Use it when you start the tablet to end apps that automatically loaded that are not needed.

When my NB8 froze I tried to power off/on but it didn't immediately respond, which was scary. I set the device aside and let it 'cool off'. Then did a firm power-on and when the screen lit up I let go, then went slowly, logged in slowly, letting apps settle into memory. I have many apps installed now, many on the microsd card. I think with tablets we're expecting they'll perform like a PC or MAC which have a lot of system utilities. Tablets are on the delicate side. I would not return this tablet as long as it remains manageable. Good luck.

There is one other thing to try. It is called a factory reset. It resets the tablet to the same state as when you bought it. It deletes all your data and settings. Go to Settings - Backup and Reset and tap Factory data reset. If that does not fix your tablet it's time for return or warranty.

I had the same problem, its the wi fi, your signal isnt strong enough. Have you tried it at a public hot spot, if it does or doesnt work, you may as well return it, hope they will make the wi fi reception stronger in next version.

Question

More on the SD card removal

I don't think you understood my question. The Nextbook 8 does not come with an SD card. The blank card that is installed is held in with a small screw. How do you get it out so you can put in a "real" SD card? This questione needs to be answered by someone who has a Nextbook 8 and has actually done this; I'll put the question to Nextbook customer support.
Thanks..

I've had my Nextbook 8 since early June. The micro SD card slot works the same on all Android Tablets. To remove a card or a blank you use your fingernail to push the card down until it bottoms (about 1/16th inch). Then slowly lift your finger. The card will be pushed out of the slot about 1/2 way. Then you can use your fingernail on the card slight ridge to remove it. To install a card, hold the tablet with the card slot up. Then insert the card with the contacts down and facing the screen of the tablet. With your fingernail, push the card down until it bottoms. When you move the card up about 1/16th of an inch, the card will lock in place. I hope this helps.

This SD card slot is actually COVERED by a plastic tab molded along the contour of the unit. To insert an SD card, you must pry out the tab (which will remain attached via a short tether). After the SD chip is inserted, -put the tab back in place over it. I actually called the company because the plastic tab is so snugly fit that I was not sure if I was breaking the unit in removing it and to make matters worse -- the manual says NOTHING about this!

There's no Android version of OpenOffice run on Android.

I have the latest full version of "OfficeSuite Pro 7" and it's adequate, has the look and feel of OpenOffice. The thing about OfficeSuite Pro is you have to buy additional fonts to make it work with other documents, like Microsoft Word. The program is $14.99 and $6.99 for the standard font package. I'd say it's worth the price, yes.

The main reason to buy OfficeSuite Pro 7 is that it can be used offline. If you're online you could use Google Drive, which is very nice, and the two are compatible.

Where do I buy a replacement AC power adapter?

Yes, but the volume is low for most apps. If you use headphones, it is fine. I have a set of portable speakers that are battery powered that work great. If you are moving around is is a little incontinent. Also, going low tech here, If you rest the tablet on your wrist and palm and cup your hand to direct the sound back toward you, This works great in low noise environments. I hate it doesn't have Bluetooth.

You can add them, although just as an FYI I have read somewhere that adding after-market accessories is not a good idea as they can sometimes ruin the tablet. I wanted a keyboard also but after reading this I decided not too.

You can add a USB Keyboard, a USB Mouse, Jump Drives, and a Card Reader to the Nextbook. You just need to obtain a micro OTG adapter (Nextbook did not include one) to hook the tablet to the device.
