I would have chosen the nexus 7 ideally, but the price point on this tab was ideal. $160 compared to $230 plus shipping made this a no-brainer. If you have a good phone and computer, the tab 4 will make you very happy.

I still don't understand why everyone says it lags, really this a fast tab that can handle most games. Quad Core and everything it's still fast. Coming from someone who used 2011 Kindle Fire for 3 years, this Tab is God. Really my phone has a Quad Core Snapdragon 400 and Adreno 305 just like the Tab 8 and Tab 10.1, yet it lags a lot more than the tab.

Sadly the in the Minecraft category this tablet lacks. A LOT. I tried it on the settings that it was automatically set to and I was getting maybe around 10-20 fps. It was largely unplayable. Its somewhat playable with everything turned down though. I'll give it that much.

Unfortunately, not as of now. Try folder mount tho, it will connect your App data in your SD CARD to the folder equivalent in the internal.

No custom ROMs available. We have recovery but that doesn't work well yet. I would expect 3-6 months before we even see a ROM

IMPORTANT: Using an FPS counter requires that the GPU be used for HW Overlays, therfore causing games to report lower FPS counts.
