I recieved my ZT180 android tablet a few days ago, installed 0804 update and have been testing out most of the features. I made a 15 minute video showing video, touch response, gaming and book reading. All in all with what I paid it was well worth it. It came with 1 screen protector and cost me 193(213-20 aliexpress coupon). Only complaint is that I have noticed the viewing angle of the screen is very narrow. You have to be pretty straight on with the screen or else you lose contrast and color. YouTube - My ZT180 and a 15 minute review

I agree with you on this one. It looks good when you hold the device sideways. The last game you played doesn't look real smooth though. But all-in-all it's a really good device for it's price.

I see your using realplayer to play divx. I have the same MID Orphan M16 version, running the 0809 ROM and I can't play divx video with realplayer or anything else. Any ideas?Great video showing the emulators, think that will be my next task,may need help with that to. After all I am a newb, this is my first Tablet. You've really uplifted my spirits regarding this MID with that video.Great Job.

I never tried the 0809 rom, I read in a lot of posts it was less stable the 0804 and that some things were removed that should not have been. I do find a lot of apps that work on 1.5 are not working yet on this build of android. I would update back to 0804 and try running some divx again. So far the only problems I have had video wise were wmv, it was touch and go with wmv, some would play and others would not. The emulators are easy enough, just install them, run them, go into the settings and turn on the virtual keypad. The emulators also respond to the accelerometer and will the screen will rotate and adjust accordingly when using the emulator. The tablet has lots of potential just the OS needs a lot of polishing. I too am a rookie at this. I have one other tablet a m70003 which is equivalent to the m001 which equals crap. I used Forums like this one to do as much research as I could to make them usable. I use torrents like Isohunt to search for apks. Currently I have over 3000 apks, Ive tested some of them, but it is trial and error to find ones that will work on the tablet.

You did something wrong when flashing. It should say 804 instead of 708 if you flashed it properly.I made several attempts to flash my unit before doing it properly. Make sure you follow the instructions, and also, the program say "UpdatePipeState: 0x600000f 6" when it is done.

Does anyone else have a cheaply made black border on their pads? If I hold my pad at an angle I can see the rectangular glass of the screen and small little air bubbles pushing out of the black border. Looks like my screen is held in place with black tape instead of a plastic border.Maybe mine was one of the first and they've improved the design since then?Thanks

I think I know what talking about and mine looks like the whole faceplate is just thin plastic stuck on with double sided tape. I believe it's the touch screen, very cheap but what would you expect for $242.00. I can live with it.
