Insignia Flex Elite 7.85: App Compatibility Problem

DJI forum: Which Tablet to use?

Question:

Looking for opinions on which tablet is best for the DJI Inspire?

In reply #11:

Insignia Flex Elite 7.85″:
I had a really good feeling about this tablet. A Best Buy Specialty brand for $150 with a 1.8GHz quad core processor and 2G RAM. It is also relatively new I think and sports a nice display and H265 4k playback potential. Tablet seemed like it would work really well considering the “nextbook” experience and this had higher stats. But it didn’t want to play nice with the DJI app and I was never able to get it to connect to the inspire. The app would open but the darn thing would just never ask for permissions to allow the controller to be connected. All debug settings were set up proper and I even took it to Geek Squad with my inspire to have them trouble shoot. Unknown why it wouldn’t connect. Its a shame. I would have loved to see the results as this looked like a solid tablet for the price.

DJI sells quadcopter drones and other equipment for filmmaking.

Bad News: Security Hole Can Let An Attacker Take Over Your Android Phone With A Single Text

The level of access attackers would gain would allow access to files stored on SD cards as well as on the phone memory. Attackers could also turn your phone into a bug, remotely recording audio and video without your knowledge. Bluetooth access is also hackable via Stagefright. All versions of Android from 2.2 and up are considered vulnerable.

Huh.

R.I.P. Writer Jeff Rice

Demons haunted ‘Night Stalker’ creator Jeff Rice

On the television screen, rumpled newspaper man Carl Kolchak faced supernatural demons in the shadow of the Strip’s neon and beyond in the 1970s cult favorite “The Night Stalker” series.

Those demons were nothing compared to the real ones encountered by Jeff Rice, the man who dreamed up the story of a real Vegas vampire serial killer and the wise-cracking reporter who nailed him. Rice, who a close friend says suffered from severe depression throughout much of his adult life, died July 1 in Las Vegas. He was 71. In an eerie tribute to the mysteries that surrounded his fiction and life in Las Vegas, the cause and manner of death is pending the results of a toxicology test by the Clark County coroner’s office.

The Night Stalker was the highest-rated Movie of the Week on ABC. It made history.

Rest in peace.

Insignia Flex Elite: New Owner Comments

From digitaldoom at XDA Developers forum.

First:

I managed to pick the flex elite 7.85″ tablet up @ my local Best Buy yesterday for a discounted price of only $90 and so far very happy with it for the cost. Not sure I would be so happy at the full $150…maybe so though.

Battery life isn’t the greatest even with a good battery saving app. Doesn’t bother me to much though because I usually have my tabs plugged into the wall outlet.

Some things I like are the beautiful display and greatly bright lighting, makes it easy to use outside or in. Also like the quick responsiveness and sensitive touch screen. It’s not so sensitive that you’re accidentally hitting things you don’t want to but plenty sensitive to pick up on the intentional hits. I like the thin style (only 0.3″ thin, I think). Although it’s plastic it feels solid and higher end in the hands. All in all it’s just a decent tab for the average user…although maybe not so much for the enthusiast.

A couple things I don’t like are that there are no accessories available for it at all. I’m rough on electronics (drop alot) and a good, solid case is near necessity for me. Still ticked off about dropping my Sero 7 PRO and killing it last year…man, was that ever a nice tab?!

Another thing I am a bit disenchanted with is no root instruction yet available and no ROM that I know of…been searching and hoping. I also read somewhere that it’s not possible to write to the micro SD card from the tablet…if true, that really sucks! Though I rarely use a micro SD card with tabs, it’s nice to be able to use them to keep onboard space freed up. I still need to buy a micro SD to test this last statement for myself, so can’t guarantee the accuracy of the statement.

Anyway, decent tab that will probably fulfill my web browsing, shopping and WordPress needs for the next year so can’t complain for a $90 investment. I don’t expect any updates to the firmware over it’s lifetime and really not to hopeful for a root instructional to be written but still pretty decent out of the box so far….I’ll let you know about the possible microsd issue once I find out for myself.
