I recently reviewed a budget friendly 7″ tablet that cost just under $40. I really liked that tablet despite a few minor shortcomings. Now, I’m reviewing a tablet that costs $10 more in the NeuTab N7s Pro W 7″ Quad Core Android 5.1 Lollipop Tablet. It’s still an amazing deal, but do you really get anything more for that extra $10? Amazingly, a lot more.
I’m reviewing the NeuTab N7s Pro W, where the W is for the white color. I assume it’s also available in a B for black model, but I was unable to find a link. In any case, in the package you get the tablet itself, a user’s manual, a screen protector (I can never put these on!), a USB AC charger, DC-5V charging cable (for faster charging over the microUSB cable), and a microUSB cable for sync or charging.
So what do you get for the slight price bump over that less expensive tablet? Surprisingly, you get a newer operating system, more RAM, rear camera, Bluetooth, and, most importantly, a nicer, higher resolution screen with excellent viewing angles. Here are the key specs:
- Google Android 5.1 Lollipop Operating System
- 7″ In Plane Switching (IPS) Five Point Capacitive Touchscreen (1024×600 resolution)
- Allwinner A33 Quad Core 1.2GHz CPU (to be fair, the less expensive tablet did have a 1.3GHz CPU)
- 1GB DDR3 RAM
- 8GB of Onboard Storage
- microSD Card Slot (supports cards up to 32GB)
- Front and Rear Facing Cameras (2 MP)
- Wifi (802.11 b/g/n)
- Headphone Jack
- Dedicated Volume Buttons
- microUSB Port (OTG)
As you can see, the feature-set is incredibly impressive for what this is being sold for.
Of course, for a tablet at this price point, there are some downsides. The back does feel a bit plasticky (although it does have a slight texture to it for added grip), so the “feel” will take some getting used to. In those same terms, the devices corners aren’t as smooth as I would like. The rear speaker is also in a poor spot and is easy to accidentally muffle. I would have also liked a bit more power and fidelity from the speaker, although obviously the inclusion of a headphone/speaker jack and Bluetooth support help to mitigate that issue.
For just under $50, there’s a lot to like about this tablet. Although it costs about $10 more than that other tablet, it’s definitely well worth the investment for the additional features.
Thanks to NeuTab for the review unit.
