Onda V972 Android Tablet Review

The Onda V972 quad-core Allwinner A31 Android tablet with 9.7 inch 2048 x 1536 retina screen is Onda’s version of the iPad clone. The tablet runs on Android instead of iOS but it is obviously “inspired” by the iPad.

The display is not the only feature that Onda borrowed from the Apple designers. The entire unit actually looks very much like an iPad including the size right up to the tapered metallic back cover and the placement of the rear camera.

Buy from AliExpress First Impressions The Onda V972 comes packed in a simple box that again has shades of Apple. However, the insides of the packaging seems rather flimsy as there is minimal padding for the tablet itself. Also in the box, in a compartment under the tablet are an AC charger, a USB cable and a flimsy looking manual. Considering how much the V972 costs compared to an iPad, we can turn a blind eye to the packaging. The V972...
