How to Pick the Best 7-inch Tablets
The Best 7-inch Tablets have launched to match in specifications the bigger models so expect this year to continue this trend, with more and more models added to the market.
Also expect more accessories, peripherals, and cases for them to be offered. Specs will increase (speed, battery life, resolution, and storage), while the lower price remains one of the strong points of 7-inch Tablets.
Now let’s see what are the things you should look for when selecting the right 7-inch Tablet for you:
Screen resolution: You want something with at least 1024 x 600 pixel, or even better as Retina display models make it to market.
Processor speed: Select at least a 1 GHz Dual Core model.
Internal storage: Keep away from 8 GB models and select one with at least 16 GB of internal storage and the possibility to increase the quantity by adding microSD cards.
Data and applications are getting bigger and bigger, so you have to be prepared for the future.
Android version: You shouldn’t get something lower than 3.2 Honeycomb, and search the manufacturer website if it has the intention to update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
This Operating System is able to take full advantage of the hardware features of your 7-inch Tablet.
Android Market access: The Best Android applications are available in the Google Play Store Marketplace, so ensure your device fully supports that.
Ports: Select something that comes with a USB port (host function) and HDMI out, so you can output videos and games easily to a big screen TV.
