Tablet users who bought cheap tablets from eBay or some other gadget related site have probably discovered soon after receiving their item the reason why it was cheap. For the most part these types of devices have a single core processor and while this is more than enough for things like ebook reading, listening to music, and using lightweight apps, but when it comes to more difficult tasks, the most notable being web browsing, cheap tablet shows it’s true face.

Auction for a very similar tablet to the one that you also probably bought can be seen above. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s still a decent piece of hardware, especially if you’re only interested in ebook reading, for example, but for those who would like to browse websites and be active online will probably find that tablet is slow. It takes some time for a single core processor found in these types of cheap tablets to open up a website and especially to load a YouTube video.

One of the things that you can try in order to speed things up a little bit is to use apps for the popular websites that you’re visiting. Take YouTube for example. Slow tablet, which my tablet certainly is, has a lot of problems opening up videos on Youtube inside a web browser, but when I installed the YouTube app, everything started working just fine once again. Something similar is probably true when it comes to all the other popular video sharing websites.

You might have the same kind of success with other websites also, like for example Facebook, Twitter, Reddit. If you have a slow tablet, then try and install apps for every one of the more popular websites that you’re using. They should start working faster. If they don’t have an app, you’re gonna have access them the old fashined way. Give it a try and see how it goes.
