Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.

We at TAG specialize in getting the best filter setup in the best way for your needs.

Netspark is great. Each filter has its strong points and weak points.

The answer to the rest of your questions is yes.
In my opinion as I have seen multiple times Gentech is a stronger product with much better service Netspark is a great product  and 70% would take that because of price or Images I guess some people will still prefer better service then cheaper.

Techloq is working nonstop on building their product better with a average request response under 2 minutes around the clock almost 24/7 because they also have a office in Israel cheaper then Gentech and also has skin toning so my opinion a big yes (My opinion not from Tag office as Tag can`t choose )

I guess I can start with netspark and if not happy switch over to gentech.
     A site like https://blog.truple.io/2019/11/06/free-android-porn-filter.html is? Anything of value or pay for a filter from TAG?

Doesn't look that reliable. If your issue is the money, go for netspark. They have a trial period.
You can also try purifeye. I've gotten some positive feedback from a fellow TAG volunteer that tried it on his own device.
Although Tag doesn't officially recommend it yet, since we don't know enough and don't have access to the backend yet.

For a few devices I wouldn't care, but being that I want to filter many devices it's going to run me a big Bill.
  I did see with Gentech online with 5 + devices you got a 25% discount which comes out to 112 per device.
  Still quite costly.

How many devices are you talking about? You can definitely get a discount.
Also, if your talking about a large number, it would be best to schedule a time where you can do a mass install so as not to bog down there tag office.
Where you located?

Any information on qustodio?
I used it for a short time on my PC and I think it's working well.  But I may be totally mistaken.

Used a family plan for a while. Not bad as far as filters go. Some of the advertised options for it (block apps, restrict device entirely, etc.)  are iffy at times.
Though, depending on your device there is a simple workaround available for those willing to make the effort.

My account is still open as the year isn't finished. If you want to try it out, PM me.

The way we work is that the device is filtered through a proxy as opposed to a VPN that many companies use. Both approaches has various pros and cons. One major con that our system has unfortunately, is that when apps are being filtered often they do not operate as they should. As such, we advise using apps that require filtering such as YouTube, Instagram etc through the actual browser and not the app itself. If a client insists on using the app, we can allow it but we cannot guarantee any filtering.

You mean my kid can likely figure out how to bypass the filter?
