I have used tablets and convertible tablets, for entertainment, reading ebooks and for teaching math and physics classes, and this is the nicest, coziest 7in tablet me and my family have ever had so far.
Some claims it freezes. Mine, not whatsoever. Perhaps kids had to be careful not to push the tiny on/off button at the top right.
Some also may complain it does not come with Android Market or is rooted. Need to know that Android Market is not really free, when you pay for a nifty expensive tablet that does the same things as this one, there, you are paying for AM. Nothing is free, unless you are willing to risk rooting it and installing a generic rom to have partial access to AM. But then you got something else: a generic tablet.
The fact that has a fast-response resistive screen makes it ideal for teaching and for school. Kids need to learn to write, and the appropiate apps, this Viewpad 7e can change the classroom. School districts will see the immense savings on their budgets.
- sleek white frame (could come in other fashion colors)
- white/black/white packing,
- nice front buttons instead of on-screen,
- nice 3d Viewscene home screen
- good size for internal memory
- fast enough for the price
- allows to install reliable non-Android Market apps
- connector for HDMI and USB on top
- front and back cameras, both videocapturing
- quick no-false response for a resistive screen
- works with $1 stylus/pen (eg Uniball Signo MC3, BIC e3)
- does turn off accidentally (asks to be turned off politely)
- decent price (if kept under $199)
- not a full Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) implementation
- should have included a plastic stylus
- not Android Market (if really want it buy a expensive tablet)
- may not fit well in small hands like kids'
- plastic case casting surface not uniform (it may have been done too fast to launch it)
- should have included one complimentary screen protector
- not easy user replaceable battery
- front camera a bit grainy with low light
A definite buy for a first family tablet. Not to be compared with flagship tablets. Tablets should now be classified according to levels; it is not fair to compare this one to iPads or other $500-800 tablets. It is a star in its own level.
As a scale for comparison, a generic $70-90 tablet will be like having a Chery QQ or Tata Nano minicar, an iPad2 or or iPad3 with 4G access will be like a Range Rover Evoque, this Viewpad 7e is like a well built Toyota Corolla. If you want something like the new shrink-size Infiniti in tablets, then get a Samsung Galaxy Note.
Well done for a budget tablet. We'll see how it lasts and endures. My review of its application for educational environments will be soon posted on my blog, [...]
As some of you already know it, the Kindle Fire costs only $199 with IPS capacitive screen, duo core and 8GB.
So if you can get this tablet under $200, you get a pretty good deal if you want something decent with a front camera for video call. Otherwise, the other good bet is MID 7022 which has a capacitive screen.
Ok, there are a lot of things to be said about this tablet. Some other reviewers have rated this tablet as bad as it could be (e.g. freezes, and etc...). True and not true.
I have a Toshiba Thrive 16GB. Comparing a 16GB 10" screen Tegra 2 with 1GB of RAM to this little toy seems unfair, but this tablet is not bad. You just must know how to fully utilize the Viewpad 7e.
- white case
- small form factor (i.e. 7 inch screen)
- front and rear camera
- Android 2.3
- microSD slot
- 4 buttons below screen
- limited 4GB storage
- 512 MB RAM
- single core
- screen resolution
I was able to install Google Market. It's really not that hard when you make some research on how to install it. BUT I've found it useless because it's not the up-to-date one.
The 1Market and the Appstore pre-installed in the Viewpad 7e are good enough. You just have to make yourself as a SuperUser. Also, the device is already configure for the user to be able to move installed applications to the SD. Or if you want you can install App2SD for free.
Knowing that you have only 4GB, a single core, and 512 MB RAM to play with, you must know how to work with what you got. The key is to clear any unnecessary program when not in use, not to use the 3D Launch (a.k.a. SPB Shell), and definitely NO Live Wallpaper.
It may sound easier said than done, right??? Well, there's a free app for that's called Gemini Taskiller Widget program. After installation and setup, all you need to do is to shake the device so that it would clear your RAM every time after you close a program to open another one. My 8 year old girl can do it. Why can't you?
With QQ Player installed, I can even play RMVB! MKV can also be played for animation episodes. This is all a cool and cheap tablet that can do it all with restrictions of course.
Overall, for something under $200, it is a nice tablet. I got mine for $170 during Black Friday.
The other thing I want to mention is the screen. It's more resistive than capacitive. It also means that it is not as hard as gorilla glass of course.
I was a little put off by it, but I eventually get use to it. It is not that bad. It's like in a Nintendo DS, if not better. It is acceptable.
Although the resolution is not that high, it is really acceptable when watching NON-HD episodes. Let's face it! Who got enough bandwidth and time to download HD episodes regurlarly??? I was one of them, but then if you car recommended fuel is 87, why pay/waste for better grade?
On my Toshiba Thrive, when I play RMVB episodes, the pictures are very blurry because of the lower resolution format. On this baby, it looks more acceptable on a smaller screen @ a lower resolution.
The other downside is the Wifi. I have really good reception. I have good signal even when I am in another room with closed door. The problem is that it seems to go to sleep even when I have set up Wifi to never go to sleep. I have also set my device with static IP, and the trouble still persists whenever the device is left unused for a while.
No problem. The solution is to reset the Wifi, and to find an easy way to do it. Just put a Wifi toggle switch as a widget in different pages, and flick it off and on whenever programs stop seeing any network connection. This usually happens after the tablet has been left unused for a while (e.g. charging).
Of course, in my more expensive Tablet (i.e. the Thrive), I do not have this problem. Hopefully, there will be an update soon to fix this problem. But then again, I know my way around it.
The sound on this tablet is pretty impressive. I did not expect it to be that good.
The Toshiba Thrive has stereo speaker. This Viewpad 7e only has one, but it sounds better than my Toshiba Thrive!!!
How so? Acoustic design. The Toshiba Thrive stereo speakers just throw sounds straight from the bottom. The Viewpad 7e resonates through the tablet nicely with only one speaker to make it more lively (kind of like a tube TV in hand)! Simply amazing! And with a white case, it's just class (with restrictive power).
- But as a Toshiba Thrive owner, I really have some hard time swallowing this. Yes, a bit mad indeed about what the Viewpad 7e can throw in the sound department. -
Also, after installing programs (then move them to SD if possible), don't forget to reboot, then test the program.
The battery is adequate. You just have to tune down the screen brightness, and lower the volume whenever you can. My daughter just crams the volume to the MAX, and she still gets some good kicks for about 3 hours. Good enough for me! I don't want her to be in front of the screen too long.
Like I said, once you know how to operate this baby, for the price it is a steal if you can find it close to the price range of a MID 7200.
At least with the Viewpad 7e, you can still use Skype or other programs to do video call. The Kindle Fire can't. Also, the Viewpad has expandable microSD storage that you can total up to 36GB (4+32). But it is no duo core, nor does it have IPS screen. It is what it is. It just depends what you want for something close to $200.
Otherwise, save your money, and buy an Iconia A100 for more $$$!
