RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I am gonna send my next7 back. It is an ok cheap android tablet but I'd rather have something solid and from a company I trust. I ordered the next3 last year for my niece and the screen cracked a few months in without even being dropped or crushed. I contacted efun and we swapped emails regarding repair and I was told too bad so sad we only repair under warranty and the screen is not covered. I explained I didn't want a FREE replacement just some info on where and how to get it fixed. They then started to block my emails. [-(

So I don't trust them. And my next7 when I connect it to my pc via usb it cycles on and off over and over and I can never get it to stay connected in order to move data back an forth. I will replace the next7 with either a nook tablet or a samsung galaxy player 5 or an ipod touch.

The truth is you get what you pay for and the nextbooks are cheap for a reason. ;-);

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

to Yahie,
yes I'm having that exact problem. It charges all nite and in the morning it says 90%. After using it an hr or two I'm getting a low battery signal. I've let it go black then recharge for multiple hrs and still the same problme. Last nite after charging for 12 hrs I played streaming video and it lasted barely two hrs. I'm sending it back, as it seems like the early ones had charging and battery issues as well. If I can't use it while flying etc it really does me no good. Think I'm more impressed with the Nook and the backup help from Barnes and Nobles. I'm returning my nextbook, though truthfully if it worked right seemed pretty easy to use.

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

[-o< I got my nextbook 7 and had it a little over 2 weeks. It shut down in the middle of using it and would not turn on or charge after that. Even tried the reset. Nothing. Sent it to Efun. Am awaiting replacement. Hope it works out better this time. Crossing my fingers, toes and everything else possible.

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I would like to help out anyone who recently bought the Nextbook 7. I bought 3 and with a big problem, the internet Grrr. To make a long story short and a few days of research got everything under control. So here are the solutions.
1. go to http://www.nextbookusa.com/download.php Follow the directions for downloading the FIRMWARE.
TIP#1: Serial numbers DO NOT need to match. If your serial number begins with (YF1011) or (YF0911) you can still update your firmware. I bought 3 of the nextbook 7 premium, They would not browse the internet Grrrr! So I called Tech Support for Dummies and they had me download the file even though the serial didn't match ( it must match the first 6 characters). Now the tablets are awesomely FAST!!! I had a promo code from HSN for the call to Tech Support for Dummies, which was free.
TIP#2: you can't open that IMG file on the laptop the tablet will do it. Here's how....After you download the file to your laptop and you have connected the tablet by usb to your laptop, open MY COMPUTER you will see an extra removable device drive. Click on it to open the drive which will be your tablet. Take the file you downloaded drag and drop the file onto the tablet. after, disconnect the usb, making sure you have the charger plugged in as well. Now shut down the tablet and then restart it up. The tablet should show you right off that it has found the firmware file. after the update is done shut down and restart one more time. You should be good as gold. Good Luck

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I ordered the TS on June 19th for the Nextbook, and was so excited to have an affordable tablet. Received it on Wed. June 22nd, and charged it up overnight. Today I tried to turn it on, and it will not stay on. I can get the Nextbook home page to come on, and then the thing quickly shuts off. Tried resetting the device in the little pinhole. That does no good. This is the second time I have tried Nextbook, and probably the last. No matter how good they make it sound on TV, if it won't stay on, I can't use it. Think I'll spend a little more for a more reliable product.
I HAVE EXACTLEY THE SAME PROBLEM?? WORKED PERFECT FOR ABOUT A WEEK NO MORE

RE: Nextbook Premium 7

I received my Nextbook Premium 7 today (Jun 24) and have been playing with it for a couple of hours. I did find a simple way to install Amazon Appstore...I googled it on my notebook and located the apk file for it, copied it to an SD card and installed the application using Astro. It is working very well now on the Nextbook. I have used a couple of other Android tablets so I am somewhat familiar with the way they operate. I will be glad to post more explicit directions if anyone needs them. Happy tableting everyone!


I will open astro but when I go to click on the sd card it says "file not found"
can you please help me?

Thanks~
