Comparison of best Compact Tablets - Page 29

post #281 of 494
What about the Hisense Sero 7 Pro? Seems to be comparable to the Nexus 7 (1.3GHz Tegra 3), but better. It has a micro SD card slot and HDMI out, as well as a rear 5MP camera. Obviously the support won't be as good, but for $150, I think it may be worth it. There are already people on XDA rooting it and putting in custom roms. Hopefully CM will eventually make it on there. With Walmart pushing it out, it may just catch on and receive some decent support.

Sounds promising. Wish this had been around before I bought the Ainol Novo7 Venus. Alas, unless the Hisense has extraordinary battery life, I don't really see the need for me to buy yet another 7" 1280*800 tablet.

Theres a new Samsung Tablet series out, and it looks interesting.

Just google
Samsung Tab 3 7.0
Samsung Tab 3 8.0
Samsung Tab 3 10.0 (I think)


The largest one is running Intel.

Still holding out for Nexus..
Hoping it has the gorgeous display, with possibly a Kabini or Temash Processor (One can Dream)

They are not out until July 7th.

The largest is a 10.1". 1.6GHz dual-core Atom chip with 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.2 and has 16 GB of storage, plus a microSD slot. It is also thinner than the 7.0 — just 0.31 inch — and weighs 1.1 pounds. Like the Tab 8.0, the screen resolution is 1,280 x 800, and it costs $399.

The 7" is LCD with 1,024 x 600 resolution. The chip inside is a Marvell dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM. There's only 8 GB of storage, but you can augment that with a microSD card. Although it's the lightest of the three at 10.6 ounces, its 0.39 inch thickness is actually thicker than the Tab 8.0. It runs Android 4.1 and costs $199.

The 8" has an ultra-thin (0.29 inch) casing. This model runs Android 4.2, backed by a Samsung 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos processor with 1.5GB of RAM. Screen resolution is 1,280 x 800, and there's 16GB of built in storage, plus a microSD slot. Price is $299.

What will be interesting to see on release is battery life... The Samsung 8" is obviously aimed directly at the IPad Mini (and it's a bit cheaper). It also has a higher res screen, more RAM, an IR Blaster and a Micro SD slot (a biggie). However, if it does not at least come close to the Mini's 12.5 hour battery life, I predict it will not do well for the casual user.

Also Barnes and Noble has discontinued the Nook HD and HD+. Looks like they are pulling out of the tablet market, relying strictly on readers. No wonder their devices were bargain cheap lately.

Here is an updated chart:

Almost correct, I believe they're still making Tablets, but just outsourcing them instead of making them in house. However, still making the e readers in house. Just what I heard.

I've tried both kindle google store and kobo app, I can't find three books in the deptford trilogy by robertson davies. Any clue as to which app store or book store I should search?

I'm actually excited about the Tab 8.0. I bought the Note 8.0 and ended up returning it because of the horrid battery life. If Samsung focuses more on the battery time for the Tab 3 version, it could be a solid competitor to the Mini (of which I have 2).

From what I have read, the Tab 3.0 is thinner and lighter than the Note (makes sense as there is no pen or port required).

I really like the Mini's (which is why I bought a second one for my daughter) but the lack of a Micro SD slot (and no chance that Apple will ever add one) and it's sluggish performance running large (7GB) mkv's is what has me looking at the new Samsung tablets. I'm currently using a 128GB IPad 4 (gave my wife my Mini) and it is stellar; fast, great battery, amazing screen. It is also heavier than a pile of bricks and not the most portable (which is what attracted me to the Mini in the first place).

Reviews for it will be out in the next week and I will be picking one up on the 7th to test it out. Hopefully it is worth keeping....


First review I found:

http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-3-8-inch-Review_id3337

Pretty interesting how different the two 8.0 tablets are from a design perspective. Apparently the Tab 3 is thinner as well.

Here are some first round battery tests on the Tab 8.0. Shows to be a bit better than the Note (although the Note numbers are high compared to what I have seen).

I have no idea why they compared it to phones??
