The thing I like about this device is the form factor and it’s a great for a 7-inch tablet. This device is made of metal, and looks a lot better than its rival. This device weighs just 236 grams, and is also 8.25 mm thick. Overall, this tablet feels a little bit more luxurious than the price that’s surprisingly shocking as it’s a tablet in the budget category.

Now, if we’re talking about the location of the button then we’re having volume rockers and power buttons to the right of the device. A micro SD card slot is situated on the left hand side. The top of the tablet also features 3.5 mm headphone port. Micro-USB port is at the bottom of this device for charging.

It is a screen measuring 7 inches and the screen resolution is 1024 x 600 pixels, and the screen aspect ratio is 16:10. Now, I don’t think a 7-inch screen is too bad for this.

This is an IPS panel and thus the viewing angles are also large enough to be seen from the side. This is not the best device in the category of budget but it is much better than its previous Tab E7. Contrast ratio, color reproduction and brightness are relatively decent depending on its price.

If you think that this tablet is a cheap entertainment device then there is a sad news for you. The problem is that you can’t watch Netflix in HD because the necessary DRM standards are not supported. You can check out the best tablets for watching Netflix in our dedicated post here.

HARDWARE & PERFORMANCE

System chipMediaTek MT8321
ProcessorQuad-core, 1300 MHz, ARM Cortex-A7, 32-bit, 28 nm
GPUMali-400
RAM1GB LPDDR3
Internal storage16GB
OSAndroid (9.0 Pie)

We get a 1.3 GHz Mediatek Quad Core cpu, and a Mali-400 MP2 GPU. Now, 1 GB of RAM on this device, and 16 GB of storage. I am very sad that in today’s time we only get 1 GB of RAM and it would have been amazing if they had provided 2 GB.

There is only one speaker on this device and it located above the screen and the audio experience is not that good. The echo is loud though, so you won’t have any trouble listening.

So, if you’re somebody who’s looking for a cheap gaming device then this device isn’t for you because the processor in this device is really low powered and can’t even handle low-end games.

I’m very disappointed with this device because it can’t even do the simple task like browsing the web and watching Youtube. I still encounter slight stutterings or lags, no matter what I do on this device.

CAMERA & BATTERY

RearSingle camera
Main camera2 MP
Video recording1280×720 (HD)
Front2 MP
Battery Capacity3590 mAh
TypeNot user replaceable

The front and rear both are 2 MP camera and it could only record in 720p 30 fps. Don’t expect to get good quality images. Even if you take some images in good lightning conditions then also you will not get good quality images. This camera might be useful to you, if you are looking for a cheap device with video calling facility. Mostly people don’t buy tablets for cameras.

The battery is 3500 mAh and it is a non-user replaceable. In my standard battery test, it lasted for almost 10 hours which is great as the price is extremely cheap.

CONCLUSION

Well to be honest, this tablet is not for everybody. The design of this device is really great even display and battery life is good but the cameras and speakers are bad. The major issue of this device is a slow processor with 1 GB RAM version. So, I will recommend this device to those who wants to do simple task like reading e-book or surfing web, and don’t want to use a tablet for heavy use.
