  1. How did I do without it ? Review by Bill
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I spent some considerable time researching before I opted for this tablet. I have had it for a month now and I am delighted with it. I am new to Android but have found it a dream to experiment with. The choice of apps pre installed covered most requirements but it is so easy to install, and uninstall others. It works perfectly using our wireless BT hub and I have just bought a 'Three' Huawei E353 3G dongle which works a treat. Just plug it in and enable Data. Nearly forgot to mention Gadgetfreaks pre and post sales service which was excellent. Thanks. (Posted on 28/05/2012)

  2. Great build quality Review by Vega
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    This is probably the best tablet you can get for this price. *Much* better build quality than Archos devices. You'll notice right away that the product is solid and sturdy. Gadgetfreakz even remap the top rocker buttons so that they adjust volume, and install Play Store and a few other apps - so everything works straight out of the box. The Wi-Fi pickup is good - better reception than my far more expensive Acer A500! The touch screen is very responsive - again, better than some ofthe Big Brands I've tried.

    I did a lot of digging before diving in and buying this Tab, and I am pretty much certain you cannot get better for 120 quid. If it wasn't called 'Ainol', these would sell out everywhere. (Posted on 09/05/2012)

    Quality

    I got one of these for myself and being totally impressed by the product for price, I have now purchased one for the wife. Gadget freakz offer a superb, quality service. It really is a great piece of kit for the price! after reading some of the other comments about charger, I do agree, the charger does seem a little 'flimsy', but we now charge ours using the usb cable via standard usb charger (iPad/iPhone suitable) and this still charges the device in 4 hrs.
    All in all, if your in the market for an Android tab, you wont be disappointed with this little beauty! (Posted on 30/04/2012)

  5. Great tablet & top notch service Review by Paul
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Ordered the Elf (for my nephew, seriously thinking of getting one for myself too) on Sunday night, recieved it wednesday in perfect condition.

    The tablet itself is a lovely piece of kit. Far more sturdy and well built than I expected, it feels great in the hand. I've never used an android tab before and it was simple and elegant to use. Kudos must go to GadgetFreakz here too, their tweaking of the system to have it run so smoothly out of the box is wonderful. The screen (i know this one is considered inferior to the Aurora) is more than adequate and 1080p video is smooth and detailed. The screen interface is quite quick too, no lag that i could see. Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja all run smoothly.

    Haven't had time to try everything yet, but simple stuff like connecting wi-fi etc is a breeze.

    My only qualm straight out of the box is the charger which seems a little flimsy and the adaptor provided (kudos again to GF for having this covered) feels a little lightweight. I'm sure they are both fine but its the only thing even slightly bad I can say, I even feel bad saying it :).

    In conclusion, so far I'm more than happy. After reading about some peoples experience ordering straight from China I'm more than glad I went the extra expense ordering from GF just for service, ease of use straight out the box and piece of mind if anything does go wrong.

    Well played GF. (Posted on 18/04/2012)

    Got the Tablet just over 3 weeks ago and I am very happy with it, never had it out of my hands.Love the way the boys from Gadgetfreaks set it up works brilliant, my thanks to the team fast delivery, and good backup when you need answers to questions.Looking forward to one coming out with a built in modem and 3g card slot. As a 69 year old pensioner I really like the voice activated search in ICS works a treat not had any problems with the system so far.Thanks again to Gadgetfreakz will be watching for your new stuff coming out.

    Having owned and sold my Advent Vega, I decided I wanted another tablet to mess with but something not too dear and stumbled on the elf, and am I glad I did. This is a little gem and comes with ICS (which I haven't even got on my Xperia S yet) anybody looking for a small tablet for not too much which works needs to get this (Posted on 17/04/2012)

  8. Amazing tablet for the price Review by Sagz
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I bought this little Elf for my other half, but I think I've used it more than him! It's very responsive, simple to use (good job as the instruction book is only in Chinese!) and runs every app I've (sorry, 'we've') installed beautifully. If it had 3g it would be perfect - but at the price it's excellent value for money.

    GadgetFreakz customer service has been excellent, even answering my email questions on Easter Sunday!
    Well Done Guys :-) (Posted on 13/04/2012)

  10. Pretty pleased so far Review by Brad
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    First the only negative:
    My unit was actually not even put together properly. The gap between the top half and bottom half looked uneven. Further investigation revealed that it needed to be clicked back together. After I did this though it feels pretty sturdy. I guess it could have rattled apart during transport? So, either GadgetFreakz' QC or the build quality are questionable but I can't tell which.

    I just put Word with Friends and Draw Something (this is for my daughter's birthday) on there and all seems to be well. It seems reasonably nippy for an Android device. I'll do a follow up review once she's used it for a bit. So far I would definitely recommend this Android device and gadgetfreakz as a retailer. (Posted on 10/04/2012)

  11. A must have.... Review by Highburyhank
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Much has been said about the fast and excellent service from this company and it can't be overstated, they are simply the best.
    As for the 'slate' it is a must-have for the price and portability. It is incredibly responsive and the 1024 x 600 display makes it elegant. A recent report said that 10" tablet-owners rarely take them out of the house. Not so with a 7" Elf. It will live in your pocket and go with you everywhere. Welcome to your new best friend.

  12. Superb for the Price Review by AlanB
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I bought this after reading other reviews because it ran ICS and because i think that the transformer prime and others are not quite yet up to notebook standard and hence not worth the price. I have to say after a few weeks use i am impressed with the elf, battery life is staggering and i was shocked to see that skype video calling over wifi actually works well. The guys at Freakz set it up very well with lots of apps and access to Android market.
    Overall a top buy for the price with the added comedy value of showing people your 7" Ainol elf. (Posted on 01/04/2012)

    Overall a very good little tablet. I am not overly techie and was worried that there might be some issues with set up etc. But this tablet was very easy to use. I have only a couple of issues. The screen freezes not and again waiting for a response and when i loaded google goggles it does not work because the camera gives a reverse image. this means all text is backward and cannot be read. I have mailed this issue to Gadgetfreakz but I am still awaiting a response. (Posted on 20/03/2012)

    Ordered and delivered within the day. Gadgetfreakz were helpful and prompt to replyto emails.
    Regarding the tablet, after using it for an hour, I can only say positive things. After all, its not from a mainstream manufacturer nor does it cost the inflated prices of them. I was originally going for the kindle fire but as this has not materialized in the UK yet then I think this will more than adequately fill that void. If your thinking of getting a cheap tablet then you won't go far wrong with this little gem (Posted on 16/03/2012)

    Got this yesterday and have been amazed at how good it is. I am very pleased with the quality, speed and usability for the amount it cost. There are a few apps (in the market place) that aren't compatible, but I think the setup and functions combined make it a very easy tablet to recommend. I was thinking of waiting for the Aurora to come back in stock but please I didn't the screen on the Elf is perfectly acceptable to me (and the kids). Service by Gadget Freakz has been first class as well. (Posted on 15/03/2012)

    This is a very competent tablet for the price.
    If you look around the web there are demos of the device not running ICS very well. The setup by gadgetfreakz is pretty much the optimal for ICS on this tab at the moment. Very good job to them.
    I have however put gingerbread on the device, with go launcher and it really is as smooth as butter.
    This device is a steal at the price (Posted on 03/03/2012)

    Value

    Great little tablet, GadgetFreakz did an excellent job with installing the market and useful apps. I, like others was slightly concerned that the market was not approved for this tablet so was pleasantly surprised that it was preinstalled. Perhaps gadgetfreakz should advertise the fact that they install the market + apps, they might sell even more!
    Just one issue for me, I was getting standard droid icons on apps that I installed. This was overcome by upgrading the Nova Launcher…. From the market. Gadgetfreakz have been really good, I HAVE recommended to others.

    As a programmer myself, this Novo7elf is worth every penny, I can see youtube, iplayer(have to play with setting and others to get it work), wifi all working fine, i even drive 40miles away from london down to the Brighton to test the internet/and locations and it work ok too.

    Last three reviews from others, I agreed with all of them, One thing i would like to point out is ICS still not very stable, please be aware if anyone not too IT experiance, when you alter/change all the advance setting please becareful, and if all the app working fine for you don't update it yet, just wait for few month,

    Please notes "Gadgetfreakz" they only sold the tablets to us, and what they selling are their "customers service", althourgh I can find a cheaper Nove7elf or other tablets on the e-markets, but so far I am very happy with their service, and they willing to carry an extra miles for their customers, which is many others can not or not willingly to do..

    The Elf is spot on, for the price you can't get a better tablet. But do buy it from Gadgetfreaz as the way they set up each tablet is superb!! I was a little worried about having to put market place on as I had read that this can be an issue with Ainol not being on the approved list. But what a great surprise when I turned this tablet on to find that Gadgetfreaz had already done all the hard work, thanks Guys. Brilliant just brilliant. (Posted on 20/02/2012)

    Very pleased with this tablet. All the apps I installed have worked fine and market works fine. Picture and sound have been excellent, although the screen is pretty relective and can detract depending on viewing conditions.
    Have played some 720p movies without issue and sound through the headset was good.
    Setting up on my network was easy and hasn't had any connection problems at all and that includes connecting from several rooms away from the router, which my HTC phone has issues with.
    I have contacted Gadgetfreakz several times and found them to be very responsive and they sorted a PSU issue out very quickly. I would not hesitate to buy from them again. (Posted on 20/02/2012)

    This being my first tablet has led to a good experience and not left me dissapointed.
    Mine came with rhe market preinstalled and working and many other usefull apps that i use on other android devices.
    Screen is great and touch is responsive although sometimes it can suffer from lag but im sure thats to do with the firmware..
    The games i have tried so far play with no issues and look great when hooked up.to the big screen with the supplied hdmi cable..
    Overall this tablet is worth every penny imo, does everything a £300 tablet does and more for a fraction of the cost, the only real issue would prob be the fact it dosnt have built in 3g but like i say you cant complain for the price...
    A real winner , thanks to the gadgetfreakz team...
