What are the risks and disadvantages of cheaper chinese tablets compared to tablets of known brands guys? Let me emphasize some of my points and let me know if I missed something or been wrong somewhere.
I keep observing as new tablets made in China keep emerging like PIPO, Ainol Novo etc. and many have pretty strong hardware I might say. My relative also has similar to these which is MagTab. In Skype tablet's camera didn't work, neither front or back seemingly because of a lacking support yet while all other tablets of known brands didn't have any problems. It is clear that one disadvantage of getting tablet of less-known brands is applications' support. I have also heard that some tablets' OS is fully in chinese and lack Google Play (formerly Android Market).
The other problem is warranty because unless you know Chinese, you won't be able to communicate with Chinese speaking support. Although, some chinese stores where such tablets are brought from offer handling and sending tablet to manufacturer.
So above were disadvantages and now about risks associated of owning tablet of less-known and non-name brand. It seems to me that such tablets may bear malware or harmful spyware because these are not made by known brands, so who knows if OS has been modified and your sensitive data is being spied on... By the if they don't comply with GNU, that means they could modify OS?
Let me know your thoughts!
