Of course, what I like it here is , you can use the USB Full Size Adapter, Connect to a TV and a Storage Device (IDK to the other tablet brands)

Firstly on connecting to a TV, where you can connect to a tv and to enjoy you tablet from the comfort in your living room. An HDMI cable (Type A-to Type-C ) is required to connect the tablet to a TV.

The tablet will recognize and match the capabilities of the TV automatically. 🙂

How to?

  1. Plug the small end of the HDMI cable into the mini HDMI connector of the tablet.
  2. Plug the large end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the TV.
  3. Then, turn on the TV, and set its display mode to the HDMI port that the tablet is connected to.
  4. Lastly, the tablet’s displat will be output to the TV screen.

Next is Using the USB Full-Size Adapter 😀

The USB full-size adapter can be used to connect and use USB devices with the tablet. The adapter converts the mini USB port on the tablet into a USB On-The-Go (OTG) connector. 🙂

  • Use the included USB full-size (Type A) adapter to connect a keyboard to the tablet at the same time with Storage Device (e.g., a USB flash memory drive).
  • This connection (Storage Device) supports a maximum storage size of 16GB. For additional storage capacity, a microSDHC card can be added to the tablet. (Really? :D)

And hey! You can also use this connection to add a mouse to the tablet! BUT, the adapter supports one connection at a time. To use a keyboard and mouse simultaneously, you will need to add an external USB hub.

Lastly, a freebie of a micro SD card from Toshiba (8GB) . yihee! :))



To summarize it all, this tablet is good/used for web browsing/surfing, or if you are fun reading an e-books. I’ll recommend this to you.. 😀


Yey! that’s all for now! 😀

til nxt time 🙂
