Haipad by Lazada: Review

Last week, I made an online purchase at Lazada .  I've been eyeing a particular tablet since December because it was on sale, but by the time I got around to ordering it (meaning, may pambayad na ako), there are no more stocks available.

So last Thursday, I finally had the courage/money to purchase a tablet (for my Mamsie) online.
The purchase was COD- Cash on Delivery and I addressed it at home, outside Metro Manila.  What's nice is that the next day, around 10 am, it arrived at our doorstep already! HA! Super fast! And I thought it would take 2-5 for a provincial order to reach the recipient.  I was really impressed.

Now, here are my small views on this gadget:

Price: Php 3,489.00  (37% off)
Actual Price; Php 5,499.00
Delivery Charge: Free! (yey!!!)


USB adaptor
Synthetic Leather Case

Smiley points: 
1. Love the free Leather case (It's usually 250-300 in the tiangges).
2. It's easy to use.
3. It's cheap.
4. The casing is color violet!
5. It's an Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich, 8G Internal.
6. It has a slot for Micro SD.
7. It has two cameras (2MP back camera, VGA front camera).
8. It has Wi-fi capability and bluetooth.

7-inch touch screen
Compared the size with an Alcatel tablet.
The Haipad is the one on top.
The leather case has an embossed "android"
on the lower right portion :)

Sad face points:
1. The screen has a lag in responding to the touch.
2. There's no earphone included.
3. Battery life, if one uses the applications lasts for about 2 hours only; 10 hours if idle.
4. There's no manual.
5. The gadget hangs sometimes (am I too much for its memory?).
6. There's no light indicating that the gadget is being charged.
7. It often hangs.
8. You can't play Castle Defense on it. Your castle will be taken over by orcs because the screen doesn't respond easily.
9. It has no NTC sticker :( (bummer)

Oh well, for almost P3,500.00 this gadget is good for me, except for the occasional lag time.   I am even thinking of buying another unit while Lazada is still offering it at 37% off.

I'm giving this 3 stars.

Which is better? Haipad or iTechie? I'm thinking of buying for my son..

Hello Ms. Lorraine. Sorry for the late reply. I have no idea about iTechie. Im using Alcatel Tablet now, and I can say, the Alcatel Tablet is much better than Lazada's Haipad. I don't recommend the Haipad if your son will be using it for games since it doesn't respond easily to touch; he might get frustrated and throw the thing at the wall. hehehe.
