Best 7 Inch Tablets (Part One)
Plenty of tablets are around nowadays. They come in different sizes and designs. For example, Sony tried to break new ground with the Sony Tablet P. It’s a foldable tablet with two 5.5 inch screens. What made it a failure though, is the space between the two screens. If the screens were connected when opened, they would’ve had a hit tablet.
There is one category though, that seems to be a great alternative to the iPad – the 7 inch tablet. These tablets only have 7 inch screens, which is really good for reading and carrying around.
You can sell your iPad and get a 7 inch tablet instead. They’re much easier to hold anyway.
If you’re going to sell your iPad and buy a 7 inch tablet, you can look for these alternatives at a store near you.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Samsung has plenty of tablets for you to choose from. The Galaxy Tab series is actually a popular alternative to the iPad, and offers several alternatives. You have the traditional 10 inch tablet, an 8.9 inch version and a 7 inch version.
The 7.0 is really popular because it’s really light and easy to hold. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 happens to be better than their previous offering, and it’s easy to see why.
The first thing about this tablet is the camera. There’s a 3.0 megapixel camera at the back and a VGA one at the front. The screen has a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels but it doesn’t have the trademark Super AMOLED Plus display usually used on their high end devices. Even so, the screen looks really great.
Aside from that, you’ll get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with TouchWiz on top. It’s a significant leap forward from Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Everything feels really smooth and the interface looks really great.
This tablet is one of the first tablets to get Ice Cream Sandwich with a custom skin. Productivity is increased. The visuals are less customized than ever before. Samsung puts its focus on usability instead.
You’ll get plenty of multitasking options, Face Unlock and complete Google apps for you to use. Of course, you’ll also have access to the extensive marketplace of Android apps. All the apps you’ll find on the iPad, Android has them too!
It has a 1 GHz dual core tablet that’s more than enough for your needs. Everything feels responsive and typing is quick.
In terms of battery life, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is really good. It lasts up to 8 hours! It even outlasts other tablets, considering that the battery is smaller.
But what makes this tablet really good is the price. It sells for only 250 dollars! That’s right; you get an Ice Cream Sandwich tablet for only half the price of an iPad!
You can sell your iPad and get this tablet, without having to shell out additional cash. It’s a steal!
