Background and Identification ¶
The Insignia Flex 7 is a 7" tablet with a capacitive touch screen and two cameras. The internal camera is located on the upper middle of the touch screen and the external camera is on the upper right hand side of the back cover (when the device is viewed from the back).
The Flex 7 performs the most basic functions of tablets, namely surfing the web, emailing, gaming, and eBook reading. Furthermore, the device downloads and uses most Android apps and can be used to meet most social media needs. As an added bonus the tablet also has the ability to take simple photos.
The insignia company manufactured it for only one year. It was released in July of 2014 and discontinued in August of 2015. The short life of the tablet was due mainly to the myriad of problems associated with it. The battery was notorious for having a short life span and the touch screen often became unresponsive requiring frequent restarts. However, it can still be purchased to a limited extent on ebay and Amazon for about $45.
The only other version of the device is the NS-14T004, which is more or less exactly the same except for a different screen size. The NS-15AT07 has a 7" screen whereas the NS-14T004 has a 10.1" screen size.
