RE: Nextbook Premium 7

have had mine a month and I love it. No problems with freezeups, etc. I found reading the instructions were extremely helpful, though not fun.
The most trouble I have is getting apps from the Amazon apps store that don't run on Nextbook 7. Most apps are still made for phones.
Forget compass, level, etc. They don't work.
I've had to download Kindle 4 times over the month, but I still like using

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I'm loving my nextbook 7! I wasn't expecting an Ipad or anything. Just wanted it for the internet and games. Still getting used to it. I has frozen 2 times while playing Angry Birds but I just had to exit and click on the game again to get it going again. I didn't get the case, which now I wish I had. I can't seem to find a case for it now and HSN is sold out. Any suggestions?


Cases for the Blackberry Playbook fit the Nextbook Premium 7 perfectly! Be sure to get the stretch elastic corners, since I am not sure where the openings are on the hard surround type. I ordered a Black with purple soft sided zip one with pocket and a pink leather one both from Amazon.com and paid way less for both than the cost of one from Nextbook. So far my only complaint is short time of 7 hours to read before I have to recharge. On the positive side, I get to bed before 4a.m. when I have to recharge!

It does all it promises. No issues as everyone else describes. Faster than most laptops for browsing. I added the Amazon app to get other apps like FB, Pandora, Angry Birds, etc. Great price, great product. Wish I had ordered 2. Most tablets on the market require a data package. Love that this one doesn't and can use wifi.

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I've used the nextbook 7 for a couple of weeks. I'm 70% satisfied. It's fairly responsive and I haven't had a lot of the tech issues that others have described by others. That being said, the Nextbook is for novice users only. Without having Android Marketplace you have to do a lot of searching for apps on your own and some apps such as Youtube and any Google related apps are inpossible to get at all.

The Amazon app is a help but it's attached to Amazon. You're not going to find the Android Nook app on Amazon and B&N requires marketplace to download app. All in all not a bad product but its sad that my phone has more apps than this tablet.

I have had 2 Nextbook 7s with this problem. The first I sent back to HSN after 3 weeks before I saw this "fix". I received my second Next 7p which developed the same problem after 3 weeks. This "fix" didn't work on mine. This time, I decided to send it to nextbookusa.com thinking that maybe they had a chance to really fix this problem with their product. I hope I didn't make a mistake by giving this product another try. I do like the product and the convience it gives me.

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

Hi, new to the android market and was reading this thread and seems most of the problems stated here are that they couldn't switch the nextbook on. My issue is it wouldn't charge!
I charged it the first time I got it and it was ok. played with it the whole day then it told me to plug it in coz the battery is low. so I did but it's not charging! has anyone encountered the same issue?
