Yes! I had Nabi 2's for my kids and got sick of the whole Nabi interface and bad chargers. I bought 2 of these for them. I did get the big Vivitar 7" tablet bumper skins with them at Walmart. Now my kids have real tablets. If I give them Minecraft, Netflix, and Youtube they are good to go. The camera on these are decent and has a flash. It is Google Certified so the OS isn't all junked up and it will run anything normal from Google Play. These also use a normal micro USB charger so if you have a nice phone these will charge from the same charger. Also the charger that comes with it will charge your phone. :) In other words if your kids are ready for a "real" tablet this one is great. And you won't mind using it either..:)

As the HiSense rep said get a parental control app. The one called "Kids Place" has great reviews and a video on how to set it up. It's got a link to the Play store and more info at http://kiddoware.com/ and even lets you change the title in settings so it doesn't say "Kids Place" for older kids. I've been using it a bit on a phone and it seems to work great.

If not, make sure to at least set a password for in-app purchases. See the how-to at https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/1626831?hl=en

answer 5
I think so - that's why I bought it. I'm concerned about how much access the 8 and 9 year old will have to the internet and such, but I'm willing to figure out how to curtail.

Regarding the build, I think it feels solid. If you really want it to be kid-proofed, you're going to have to get a case and screen protector for it. My kids are pretty good with handling devices *smaller* than a tablet, so we're going to have to see how it goes.

Lastly, this tablet has Android 4.2.1 and required some sort of system update from Hisense soon after I got it running. The next version of Android (4.3?) is the one that seems to manage multiple users and provide for restricted profiles. I wish I had that version for the kids.

Hope this helps...

Not sure if there's a specific one from Hisense but since they use micro-usb for their charging port (and file transfer port) I use it with the micro-usb car charger I got from Verizon years ago for my wife's cell phone. Works like a charm.

It takes a normal micro USB charger. The charger that comes with it is 5V 2.0A which is the same as high end phones. In other words there are a billion car chargers for it. The trick is finding one that rocks. Don't buy the cheapest one. A good Galaxy S4 phone charger would work great. A Galaxy S2 charger doesn't put out 2A so it won't work. Get a 2A or 2.1A charger and you are good to go.

Question

electronics dummy:)

I only have regular broadband through our city. I'm assuming I won't be able to use the internet with this at home. What about other places? Or do I need to be making a monthly payment for wifi to use the internet with this? I always thought you needed a password to use others' wifi. I realize some places have free wifi that can even be accessed in a parking lot...will this pick that up even though I don't have a wifi account myself? My sister in law was going on and on about needing cellular. I'm pretty confused, but would love to have a tablet. Thanks for any help!

If you have wifi at home you should be able to connect to it. You have a password for a safe connection. Some free wifi hot spots require a password but the business will provide you with it if you ask them. Cellular service costs on a monthly basis and most tablets with the cellular option are more expensive.

1.) If you have internet service at your home, you can purchase a wireless router to set up wifi in your home. Then you can log on with your tablet.

2.) There are tablets that have both wifi and cellular service capabilities. They usually cost more and you have to pay a monthly fee for the cellular service.

I use the wifi with my Hisense 7 pro.

The tablet connects wirelessly to the internet which can be your own home wireless network using a router set up with your broadband or by connecting to public WiFi hotspots. Hotspots can be places such as restaurants or even hotels you stay at providing you with the password. Your tablet will search for available networks to connect to when changing locations. If a password is needed, it will ask for one to connect.

This is a wifi only tablet, so you need to be connected to wifi to surf the web or get email. There are a lot of locations that offer free wifi, such as McDonald's and Starbucks. You don't need any special access or accounts for free wifi service if you are out and about and want to connect. Generally, the only thing you'll have to do to get access to a free network, is connect and accept their terms of service which usually pop up when you open your browser. If you do not have wifi at your home, you will not be able to get on the internet their. But if you have wired internet at home, it's a pretty easy thing to add a wireless router.

You say you have broadband through the city. If you have internet of any kind coming into your home, you can add a wireless router and use the Hisense Sero 7 or ANY wi-fi enabled tablet. And, yes, there are PLENTY of places that offer free wi-fi and the Sero 7 Pro connects with no problem. The only reason you'd need 3G or 4G in your tablet is if you wanted to use it while traveling, such as using the map program as a GPS receiver. And, of course, many apps don't even require internet connectivity to work.

Needing a credit card has nothing to do with the device, but everything to do with the providing service. It's GooglePlay and iTunes that require credit cards. You may be able to get a pre-paid VISA card to use. Just load a few dollars on it and only use it for app purchases.

I don't really understand your question. This tablet has WiFi capability built into it. If you can pick up an open WiFi network than you can connect to it. If you have a wireless network at home or office it will work on any WiFi tablet. Once you are on a network than you have internet access.

This is probably a question that your cell phone manufacturer should answer. This device can only connect to Wi-Fi for data. If your cell can serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot then yes. In the cave man days, 3 years ago, some cell phones were able to share data over a USB cable. This device can not do that. Hope that helps.

I have not found anything that it doesn't have.

That depends. If you don't already have a subscription to an internet provider in your home for yourself than I highly doubt it. If you live in an apartment and your neighbor has an open WiFi network, meaning, that they have no password to secure their network, than you can connect to it. The only free wifi is hotspots that coffee shops c and some hotels have. Comcast or Exfinity has many free wifi hotspots. Go on line and do a search for their locations.

You need wi fi to run this tablet if you are going online. If you don't have wi fi, you can always take it with you and when you are somewhere that offers free wi fi, then you can get online. There are apps that can be downloaded onto this tablet that can run when you aren't hooked to wi fi, but you would have to check out all the apps that you want and see if they run without the wi fi. Games are the usual apps that I am talking about or flashlight apps. etc...bottom line is you need wi fi first to run this or it won't be much good, but then again you need wi fi for all tablets or computers..
