There actually nice if you have the updated firmware.

Word of warning, DO NOT put LockPattern OnOff widget on. I set mine up then locked it to test it and it COMPLETELY locked me out!!! I had to use the firmware update to basically reimage my tablet!

Question 10" FacePad Android 2.2 Tablet PC - 4GB Flash 10.1 Froyo GPS Epad Apad - iBex-FacePad

Hi,

As you notice, I am a newbie here and to the android tablet world too... I do not own one for now but, reading this forum, i was going to try the flytouch 3 when I saw the Facepad here :

iBex Facepad Android 2.2 Tablet Pc - 10" 4gb GPS Flash 10.1 Apad

It seems to be exactly the same thing as the flytouch 3 but, being more recent, maybe the flash is working and some other bugs solved ?

I tried to find some reviews on it but got no luck... So i thought I would ask you your opinions... Any help would be appreciated !

Thank you!

P.S. This forum is really great!

Looks pretty much like the exact same thing I got, only with a prettier box and 15$ added to the price. Specs are the same and the ports are in the same place.

I think it is yet another packaging for the same tablet.

Hiya all ....

I've been reading about Android devices for a while now and wanted to get one. However, financialy right now, it isn't going to happen. My daughter had been saving her money to buy an iPad, but when I showed her what a Flytouch 3 could do, she decided to get one instead. She might as well as she mostly just surfs and emails anyway. So she gave me the money (no credit with dad) and I ordered one from DHGate ( 10.2quot; Flytouch 3 III GPS Android 2.2 Froyo Tablet PC Inf...USD 222.58/Piece Wholesale Price at DHgate.com). It comes with a case and USB keyboard and free shipping ($222 US - $215 CAD). I ordered it Saturday night. As the site says, they take 3 days for processing. I got my email on Monday night saying that it had been shipped (DHL) and provided me with a tracking number. It took 1 1/2 days to make it to Canadian Custom, another 1 1/2 to clear and be delivered to my house yesterday morning. Couldn't believe how quickly it was delivered.

Loving it, everything so far seems to be working like a charm. The occasional hiccup with flash 10.1. Haven't tried GPS as yet (can't pry it out of my daughters hands until she's in bed). However, one thing bothers me. On the desktop, there is a weather display app. Preset for Shanghai. I went in to change it. It lists all these countries but NO CANADA. WTF. Does anybody know if there is a file I can adjust to get and display weather for a Canadian city? Or do I have to download a seperate weather app?

I have also read about Market not displaying all the apps (running version 20110316 - Disco). I assume this is why I can't seem to find Skype to download for Android. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Also is there any apps that let you install non android programs on the tablet? If not is there a way?
I would say your GPS is working but the nav program doesn't support mapping in your area. Try using something, like GPS Test from android market. There is a free version or you can buy the pro version for less than 2 euros. This should give you an indication if your GPS works or not.

Hi QuietFier,

Tanx for the reply... I tried to read your past posts but I still would like to know where you are with your flytouch ? Is everything working for you now ?

And yes I understand that FacePAD seems to be the same machine thean the Flytouch3 but it seems more recent, so do you think to some problems might be solved in it like flash, youtube, ... ? I have no experience with "china" stuff... The price difference is not huge so maybe I shoud try it ? What do you think ?

Thank you!

Hi can the owners of flytouch3 4 gig and 8 gig please tell me when going into Settings/Internal device storage What their available space is please.
As mine was only 780 mg out of the box and going down with every app i install.
My Flytouch3 is an 8 gig There is 6gig in the local folder but this is not much use as the apps do not install there.

Default Flytouch3 Superpad 2

Can find any really good updated pics either. Wondering if the bump for the ethernet cable is still there.

Waiting for a decent review, written or via youtube.
Go to youtube.com. Search for flytouch 3. There are several videos available there :

Default Does a true FT3 have 1 TF slot or 2 ?

All the posts I have seen say the "real" Flytouch 3 has 1 TF slot, not 2. Which is correct?

By the way...where can I download the latest rooted Android 2.2 version for FT3? Is a Honeycomb version available?

Evans, there is no real FT3. What we're calling the FT3 is really more like an FT2 generation 2. Just boosted specs on a FT2. This model carries one TF slot whereas the real FT2 has two. Also the FT3 comes with Android 2.2 stock and can be rooted fairly easily(there are a bunch of threads on this just search). Lastly no there is no Honeycomb ROM and probably won't be for some time since the source for Honeycomb hasn't been released yet.

Default My Review

I received my Flytouch 3 and yes it was a "true" 3 from DHGate Seller Eshenzen this morning. There service was top notch and the communication excellent. Unfortunately this is where the good news ends...

Ill break it down into a review that I wish I read...

Physical Unit-

Decent weight, not overly heavy but a nice heft. The device is plastic, twice the thickness of an iPad by comparison or a thick magazine. The overall build quality is excellent for what this product is. The buttons respond well, the device is held together strongly and I was pleased with the black and silver appearance. Battery is strong for a generic at 6 plus hours.

Screen-

Horrific. Only at the best of angles does this tablet begin to have any sense of beauty. If you have any intention of watching movies on this device DO NOT PURCHASE. The screen is plastic feeling in the worst way, it indents as you push into the resistive screen. More on that... For a resistive screen it is actually very responsive and was not an issue I had. With the proper force it feels capable and a stylus is included but it does scratch the screen with improper use. What ruins the functionality is the constant feeling of the screen indenting into itself. The deathblow for this screen however is it's brightness which is pitiful at best and combined with poor viewing angles kills the screen as an entertainment piece despite a solid touch capability. *Used in the dark it is upgraded from "Ugh WTF" to "Meh" for what it's worth...

Usage-

Standard Android 2.2 minus functioning market, proper application installation, and an inability to handle anything in a smooth function other than flipping from screen to screen, the button I used the most was reset after watching this tablet lock up and I began to beg for mercy.
A Quadrant Standard test brings the results of 482. (Meanwhile my Atrix brings a 2493...) Flash is an unholy abomination on this device. While attempting to watch NHL highlights I was treated to Red New York Ranger jerseys and green ice. YouTube is not enabled as an app and buffers along at a whimpering pace. Mind you I have 52mbps internet... the final straw that made me want to take this thing out back like old yeller... the 16g card included had a total meltdown and needed suicide watch and a wipe to get working before the tablet simply kept looping the loading screen.

Closing Thoughts-

This tablet has something going for it if you have some seriously low standards or simply want to check your email and browse on a 10' screen despite that screen being an eye-sore. But I purchased this to handle all my browsing, gaming, and essentially replace my laptop while giving me a similar quality to my Android phone. This does not come close. Under no circumstance would I elect to use this device over any android phone made recently. I was genuinely excited and attempted to have reasonable expectations but this is simply low quality. I would recommend spending the additional money on a tablet such as the Archos that has a screen that is high quality enough to be enjoyable as well as the benefit of capacitive touch. I do not want to come across as somebody who expected an iPad, I purchased this knowing it would not match it but the absolute ass kicking it receives is astounding. If you must get this tablet or chock me up to 1 whiny review then I would recommend DHGate and Eshenzen. They respond quick, the guarantee is excellent, and the tablet arrived quickly. Overall what a bummer...

Sidenote-

I also received the leather keyboard case. It works well, swanky construction and overall a cool accessory I would recommend.

I'm still waiting for mine! I've been told I should receive it this Thursday/Friday.

I have been reading reviews regularly on this device and more are positive than negative. It seems different people have different problems though which shows an inconsistency in quality. I obviously hope I haven't got a dodgey one.
Here is a recent youtube video rating this device. This guy seems to like it. YouTube - FLYTOUCH 3 (English Review Version)

The same user has uploaded a video showing its flash player in action too. Not that good yet to say the least but with a bit of luck will hopefully get sorted in the future.

I can't wait to get my hands on it to see what it's like. Ideally I would of liked to have seen one in real life before purchasing it but it wont be the end of the world if I am disappointed.

Has anybody tried a video call on these things yet? Obviously not with Skype, but with Tango or similar app?

Great video reviews, thanks for posting those. I agree with you on the consistency thing and based on the prevailing sentiments around here I think the best place to order one is from ************. Despite what the other guy said about the poor screen image quality, it looks pretty darn good to me in all the youtube reviews I have seen, and I've watched a bunch of them in a variety of different lighting conditions. Can't wait for mine to arrive, should be here in about a week or so.

Default enjoyed reading this thread

Hi. New to androidforums. Have been reading here for a while. It seems that the confusion is clearing a bit as to which is what and such.

Would really like to see some of you "in the know" folks write blogs putting all you have on all these forums together, clearly and true detail, of course.

For now seems everyone is busy as bees just keeping up.

When we see a tab come out of china with full 2.2 support, as in max ram, max cpu, and wide open for root install whatever we want, kernal, android os(s), then these manufactures will have hit the sweet spot and we users will be like-n-it.

Had superpad(1) bricked it, have flytouch 3 on the way.

Thanks all for your input and support.

Well, this guy seems to be in the same place as I am on this unit. I really like mine and the screen is very good for me.
I am ordering 4-5 of them next week for a few friends and my brothers. So that should tell you something on my end and they all have seen and used mine. I could have sold 2 today at Starbucks, while I was using mine and fielding questions for another 2+ hours with the battery usage at 68% and the end.

Hiya ftanl .....

No, I haven't found a work around, however, I haven't spent that much time on it. My daughter hasn't complained about it recently (it's her flytouch), I'm just the tech support. ;-)

After watching these reviews I feel even more ripped off. My screen is nowhere close to the brightness these guys are getting. Anybody else just have awful brightness?

In this thread there is a discussion about a firmware update curing a low brightness problem....

http://androidforums.com/gome-flytouch-tablets/312175-firefox-screen-brightness.html

If you've already got the latest firmware, then perhaps you just got a defective unit. If it was mine and a firmware update did not cure the trouble I would see about returning it for a replacement. I know it won't do you much good now, but it seems that the majority of people are getting the best/most up to date Flytouch 3's from "************" or "Pricedinchina"

Including shipping I paid : $195.88

Few things I liked about it is :
- FlashPlayer10.1 Tablet PC
- Infortm X220, 1GMHz ARM11
- Battery : 7000-8000mAh
- camera 2.1M pixel

I will update more after receiving the item.

I am not looking to upgrade from 2.2. I am looking for a basic functions..
- Web surfing
- 3D games
- Emails
- Min 5 hours battery life for surfing
- Good Web Camera

Specs seems promising and most of the tablets have battery rating under 5000mah and this one only has 7000 MAH.

Again, This is info from the website .. I will write comments in next week after playing a little bit.(Hopefully, I will get by next week)
I got mine from ********** too with similar specs.

Here is my experience:

1. Power adapted got knocked out within the 1st day. But I happened to have a spare.

2. The WIFI works as well as the other netbooks and devices I have around the house.

3. YouTube works.

4. Android Market up and working.

5. The built-in browser was not displaying some colors correctly. But Opera works fine.

6. Angry Bird works fine.

The GPS and 3G I haven't have time to test.

The BIGGEST problem I found is the G-Sensors appear to be reversed which means games like Raging Thunder & Labyrinth cannot be played properly. It appears that left/right is up/down and vice-versa. If not for this problem it would be a great value for money device.

Anyone tested their G-sensors for games?...Same problem or working?

I odered it on the 14th but re-contacted them to get a 32GB TF card with it, only to find out the dealer only had 16GB TF's so I said ship it that took another day. So shipped on the 16th 6 days later it's in my hands and 2 of those days were the weekend. I got the keyboard with it. Android Market is per-loaded and works like a charm so does the camera, and USB ports. RJ45, WiFi, and headphones all work. Won't get much work done tomorrow will be loading apps and learning how this baby works. I down-loaded the PDF android 2.2 manual and will be reading....
Have you checked the gsensors? Try downloading Raging Thunder or Labyrinth
from the Market.

Everything works okay (so far) except my G-sensors are reversed for games.

Hello,

First time poster and first time tablet owner. I’ll share my experiences with the Flytouch 3. I ordered mine from DHGate through store name “outlets-center”. The ordering and delivery process were relatively pain free. From time of order to delivery I think was a week and a half.

Overall I’m really disappointed in the tablet. It looks nice and is solidly built but does feel a little heavy. Here are the advertised specifications:

************************************************** **************
Flytouch3 / Superpad 2 Hot Spots:

- Android 2.2 Froyo OS
- Built-in GPS Navigator + GPS Antenna
- Dual MicroSD / Single TF Card Slot
- Dual USB Ports for plugging Keyboard Cases
- Larger battery for extended usage time
- Built in Youtube Application for browsing videos
- Android Market Pre-installed
- 1.3MP Web Camera

Superpad 2 / Android 2.2 FlyTouch2 Gps Tablet PC Specs:
CPU: InfoTM X220 ARM11 1Ghz
Display: 10-inch (1024600 ) LCD
RAM: 512MB DDR2 / ROM: 4GB - Note: only 2gb is available for use as half of memory is used for O/S, Apps, and GPS.
Battery: 6400mah - use up to 6 hours!
Camera: 1.3M
GPS: HopeRF XN203
Wifi: 802.11B/G
I/O: 2x USB; 1x RJ45; 1x HDMI; 2x MicroSD; 1x Stylus-slot
Vibration
Accelerometer
Dimension: 269.91mm*170.45mm*14.89mm
Buttons: Back, Home, Menu, Volume, Wifi, Reset and Power

************************************************** **************

Here are the main problems I have had and I think they’re pretty significant:
  • WiFi – My wireless router is one room over from my bedroom. If I’m laying in bed with my knees up, my legs I guess are blocking the signal too much and the tablet goes down to one bar. If I put my legs down, it goes to 2 bars. If I walk one room over and sit the tablet right next to the router I get the max available of 3 bars. The two laptops we have in the house get great reception even in the basement 3 floors down so this problem can’t really be blamed on the router.
  • Flash 10.1 – The ad on DHGate said 10.1 flash was available. It’s not. I’ve upgraded to the latest release and most of the time the websites just time out. If it is able to play at all it’s so choppy and distorted that you really can’t claim it’s working. I had visions of watching t.v. shows on the tablet on hulu.com or similar sites but doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
  • Battery Life – Stated to have browsing capability for up to 6 hours. Best I’ve had was about 2. And that’s relatively light usage. This could be because the tablet is just horrible with WiFi and is constantly working to maintain a signal. But turning WiFi off and just playing games the battery dies out pretty fast as well. I haven’t timed it to be exact but not much more than 2 hours if any more.
  • Power Charger – the charger cord they give you is about 24 inches long which is too short for using the tablet while it’s plugged in. The tip of the charger that plugs into the tablet is the tiniest one you’ve ever seen. It’s about half an inch long and about the combined width of 3 hairs. My daughter was playing with the tablet and broke the end off so now I have to order another charger. I saw someone recommend going to Radio Shack which I did but none of what they had matched the existing charger 5V / 3000mah. Looks like there is a replacement on China Grabber.
  • CPU / memory processing – stated to have RAM: 512MB DDR2 / ROM: 4GB CPU: InfoTM X220 ARM11 1Ghz. When trying to verify that on the tablet itself I don’t see any of those numbers. They’re all below that but couldn’t tell you for sure what they were because I can’t recharge it at the moment to look. I’m not sure if the lower numbers reflected remaining resources but there weren’t comparison listings where I was looking that showed installed vs available. Turning the device on, you get the android flash screen for about 2-3 minutes before it lets you in. Seems slow to me.
  • Apps – Angry Birds does work and works well. Kind of slow in between levels but that may be normal. Games that have to respond to the tablet tilting pretty much don’t work. The tablet specs doesn’t claim they do but just letting everyone know that might want to purchase a tablet that is good with motion sensing.
  • GPS – One of my main criteria used in selecting a tablet was to have GPS capability. The GPS status application says it’s working but when I try to bring up google maps (while connected to the Internet) it says GPS is not set up for my location. This happens at home and in Washington, D.C. The GPS antenna is also connected.
So I have a laundry list of problems. I’m hoping some new android releases will magically fix the problems I’m having. Reading through the posts of others on this forum it looks like they’ve experienced some of the same issues so it’s not just me. Misery loves company.

Should be getting mine tomorrow, Royal Mail have it at the moment. I hope I don't get too many issues with it or I may cry.
In regard to the weather widget not recognising Canada..could you delete that widget and download a different weather widget? Not ideal but better than seeing weather for China when your in Canada.

I was hoping to install 'TV Shows Stream' on this device and watch programs from sites like Megavideo...is this possible?

I'll let you know how I get on with it when I receive it.

Hopefully I can reply to this site on my Flytouch 3

I have my Flytouch 3!

I was suprised to see a newer model when I took it out of the box - it has the slick black back and no bump for the ethernet port (it still does have that port)

I have rooted it - thanks to this video:
YouTube - How To Root Flytouch 3 Superpad 2: Android 2.2


I have installed Google maps via 4shared as an .apk file, that installed fine. I havent got a Youtube app and I downloaded the .apk and I couldnt install it - rubbish. Also playing youtube videos via youtube.com isnt great either, the colour is drained and its choppy. I need to play around with it more to get youtube working.

The screen isnt the brightest too but it'll do if I cant get it any brighter. I read in another post if I go onto System Update I can fix this issue but when I try to check updating I get error ERR 301.

Also in the android market they dont display any pay for apps. Just the free ones. And not all the free ones either. No facebook/twitter/whatsapp/youtube/sky news. If I go into downloads it recognises some of my purchased apps from my android phone which I could download.

I bought mine from ebay. From China via Newcastle - saved the risk of import duty.

I now have youtube working.
If, when you get your tablet and it doesnt have youtube, do a search in google for:
youtube_1.6.21.apk
I downloaded mine from the 4shared website. It works well.
Also I have now got the official twitter and facebook apps working via downloads from 4shared also.
I've downloaded Fring (with the intent on video calling) but it says the device doesnt support video calling, boo. It still lets you check the box for video calls though - havent had chance to test it yet.
I also tried downloading Tango from 4shared but it wouldnt let me install. May try another file in the future.

Anyone else got any good apps for this device to recommend?

Although that's what was advertised, mine does have only one SD card slot.

Ok thanks for the info. I'll be following this thread. I'll let you know when I receive mine. I'm thinking the end of this coming week to the US. I'm looking forward to it. Enjoy

I don't think the price is going up. I also saw only $209 and free shipping
I think it depends on the vendor, I ordered one from ************ early last week @ $212, and they're up to $225 when I checked yesterday. I've been keeping a close eye on it because if I like mine I'm going to order another for my wife, and I would like to do it ASAP, before the prices climb any higher. Seems to be a very popular tablet.

Heya fellas! Ive been thinking about buying a Flytouch3 for a little while now and have been following this thread for the past week or two trying to decide on whether or not to buy it. This is my first tablet and I dont have the money to buy another one if I dont like this one so I want to make sure Im buying the right one.

I Have a few questions for those who have already purchased one and have experimented with it. Does the home screen "cube" really lag when you turn it? If so, is there other options? Is the touchscreen fairly responsive? Can it play youtube videos w/ or w/o a browser? In your opinion is it worth the $200?

I know a few people in China and they said that the tablets there are less than $100 US. The FT3 might be in that category but who knows, just make sure they're getting an FT3 and not another brand/manufacturer.

To reset the Flytouch 3 power the unit off. Hold down at the same time the Home, Menu, and Back button (the big round black one on the screen side) and then turn the power back on (hold power button down till it says "... finished"). It should restart after releasing the power button and reset all to factory. If successful it will present you with the calibration screen.

I received mine this week and after a couple of minor glitches (mainly due to there not being any decent instructions with it), finally got it up & running. I've found no lag with the home screen and you can change it to a sideways scrolling list (although still trying to work out how to move the icons from one area of the menu to another).

Dolphin browser is way better than the one that it comes with and I've installed Advanced Task Killer, so I can shut down any apps that I don't want running. This has increased the speed a great deal.

I bought mine for reading ebooks, but also wanted to be able to browse the web, FB and Twitter, so the Flytouch 3 fills the bill just nicely. The Kindle App & FBReader work well, although not with all the bells & whistles of the real Kindle & other ebook readers, I'm still happy with my purchase.

I've confirmed that you're actually not getting much of a discount on the FT3 in China. For the base unit it would be $165, with 8GB SD $180, with 16GB SG $195. So yes there's a discount just not much of one.

I just got back from a trip over there and to one of the factories. The wholesale market there isn't as good as you would think for these. I ended up buying a bunch for a client that is going to be giving them out to students next year. Factory cost is still high on these since they are new. In 3 months the price will go down. I'm only make enough to cover my cost of the trip. I can order more directly from the factory if anyone wants one. They all come with the black case/keyboard too, ship from St. Louis so I should be able to do the flate rate USPS box, have to wait and see if they will fit. Let me know, if not no worries.

Default All Apps via HDMI or just Video playback?

Hi, I would be grateful if someone could confirm if the Flytouch 3 can show everything via the HDMI out or just video playback. Can you play Angry Birds for example on the TV...or surf internet? Hope I could also use the tab as a low cost internet for the TV with hdmi and wireless keyboard.......?

Currently the FT3 can't show anything via HDMI. Our own Mixterz tested several mini-HDMI to full HDMI cables and none worked. I didn't get mine in the packaging as expected and it probably wouldn't have worked anyway.

Thanx for the quick response. Can anyone suggest a tab that WILL show everything via the HDMI on a tv and also has a USB connection for a keyboard?
