The battery life is not long. I know because I have this tablet. BE AWARE the tablet within 5 to 10 minutes gets very hot!!!! So when you're on try to have it up not lying on something but upright so it gets air.

Download the free version of "lookout" from the play store. It will scan all apps already on the tablet and scan any new one as well as run periodic scans.

You don't need antivirus on a tablet, but if you feel more comfortable with it on the tablet you can. You can download it on your tablet from the playstore or you can purchase a digital download version from Best Buy also.

Adobe quit supporting Android some time ago. This was Adobe's decision, not Google's.

As of Android 4.0 Google and Adobe no longer support Flash. Most web sites are in the process of converting their content to HTML 5. This is therefore not a limitation of the Insignia Flex 10.1" but a policy decision made by Google and Adobe that affects all Android tablets and phones going forward.

Brushed Aluminum except for the speaker panel which is plastic. The plastic strip allow for the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS radios to work more efficiently.

There are NO cases. Believe me I've been looking. I did find a fairly decent case at walmart called: Go Go NetBook Sleeve it's a 10" sleeve with a double zipper on top. I still would be VERY CAREFUL with this tablet. Its not made sturdy. Like their first one the 9.7 inch.

You need an app for the file type. Adobe reader is nice for PDFs, and I use WPS Office and Astro FIle Manager for many others.

If the download is a PDF file, you need to download and install Adobe reader on your tablet. You can install this from the Google play store, just search for it. Then you will be able to view and open any file that is a PDF format. If the download is a Word or Excel document, you won't be able to open it.

You most likely need to download a program to open the file. Without knowing the specific file type you are trying to open, I can't tell you which program you would need. You can find many of these programs for free in the Google play store.

It has only a front facing camera (2mp). While it does take still as well as video as it is front facing it would be a bit difficult to use as a "camera" and at 2mp the quality isn't great.

The Insignia Flex 10.1 tablet comes with a 2.0MP webcam, but it does not have a built-in camera.

I hope that helps!
