What is IPS?
IPS stands for in-plane switching. An IPS-LCD is a type of thin display that offers better viewing angles than TFT-LCDs. IPS-LCDs feature two transistors for each pixel, where TFT-LCDs use just one. This requires a more powerful backlight, which delivers more accurate colors, and allows the screen to be viewed from a wider angle. The downside is that an IPS-LCD may consume more power than a TFT-LCD.
IPS-LCDs typically are found on high-end cell phones and portable devices. Apple's iPhone and iPad both feature IPS-LCDs, so does nexus 7 tablet.Specification:

Good Performance for the Price
The Dragon Touch 9.7″ tablet works well for what it is. It is not an iPad, so if that is what you are expecting, that is what you should be buying. I didn’t want to pay $500 for a high end tablet so I gave this a chance. This tablet does everything that I expect it to and does it well. The only complaints that I have are:
1. The WiFi seems slow at times, like it is not connecting at full speed, or connecting and dropping and re-connecting. Sometimes web pages load right away and sometimes it takes a few moments.
2. The screen is not the best quality. It looks good from certain angles but not from others. Mind you that this doesn’t effect the useability of the tablet. It is just that colors look different depending on what angle you are viewing from. Of course my other android device is a Samsung Galaxy S phone with an AMOLED screen that is supposed to be excellent.
The tablet comes completely rooted so there is no need to do that if you are into that sort of thing.
If I had it to do again, I would probably buy the Nexus 7 tablet for $199 instead. I think that the smaller size would be better for what I am using a tablet to do. The big downside of the Nexus 7, for me, is the lack of a memory card slot.
I am not bashing this tablet at all. I gave it 4 stars and I feel that rating is valid. It is very good value for the money and it does everything that it is supposed to do. I just wanted to give an honest opinion on why I don’t think this is a 5 star tablet.
9.7" Android IPS Capacitive Touch Screen 16GB Wifi A10 Tablet w/ Dual Camera.
I did a lot of research before I purchased this tablet. I knew I wanted a capacitive touch screen, dual camera, 1 Gb memory and flash support, and the 16 Gb storage was a bonus. I am not at all disappointed. I received the tablet in about 3 days, and it was obviously brand new. I have tried many of the advertised features, and so far I have had absolutely no problems. Google Play has all the free apps I need, so that’s not an issue. Love the capacitive touch screen! The display is bright, the screen is big enough to easily read email and small print on internet sites, and the battery life seems okay. The owner’s manual is fairly worthless (almost too small to read), but I hardly ever use those things, anyway.
My only complaint is with the keyboard case that was advertised to be used with this tablet. It is for a 10″ tablet, and those are a different shape. The 9.7″ is more square–not “wide screen”–so it is too tall to fit nicely into the case. The keyboard works okay, but it’s difficult to close the case with the tablet inside it. I may try an iPad 2 case, since that seems to be the same size.
i ordered this tablet for a friend and she has yet to put it down. she does everything from playing games to watching movies and in her opinion its AS good as a Ipad.
Excellent Starter Pad
I bought this pad for my granddaughter’s 11th birthday. At first she seemed disappointed as she had wanted a laptop or iPad, but after getting it home and working on it, she called to tell me she Loved the pad. The PC Format is enough like a regular computer that she picked up on how to operate it right away. She has had a iTouch for a couple of years but was very happy and excited about how the Dragon Touch Pad operated. I have no qualms about recommending this pad for the anyone. You do need a micro adapter to connect it to a PC or a keypad and this is not made clear on the purchase screen. Also the keyboard shown with the pad is the wrong siz, so be sure you go for the correct size. This is a marketing problem and not connected to the pad itself.
I got this for my wife to use as reader and she is very happy with it. Easy to get to the Google Play Store and Amazon for the books she wants.
2nd review: 7/24/13 We’ve been using this now for about 3 months and it is working great. Battery lasts many hours. Can read a book for hours on end, and the battery has never gone dead yet. I connect to charger for my computer illiterate wife, about every 3 or 4 days.
I am ordering another for myself.
Great buy for money!
Okay, I HATE EXPENSIVE TECH STUFF that has too much stuff on it I won’t use! I want a CHEAP IPAD that performs with the EXPENSIVE ONES and I don’t want a big learning curve. I FOUND IT! For $149 This PAD is doing everything I want it to do and more. I’ve had it for 4 weeks and I’m using it for pics, email, gmail, facebook, twitter, ect.. and I’m happier than a pig in a mud hole! Great value, good buy!
A lot of fun
I bought the tablet for my son. He has been having a lot of fun with it. He has skyped with his grandparents and now uses it more than his cell phone. No complaints! I am planning on getting at least one more.
