Newsmy S7 Dual Core review: meet the company’s unmatched tablet
TweetWe’ve witnessed our fair share of budget Android slates emerging as far as Australia to India to New York and Beijing; several of which essentially have afforded us with a bit of hope and actually doing it below the $250 price mark. And even as a few sub-$200 models have strewn the trade fair corridors, vaporware is what they’ve been, by no means being able to dock on western markets. The Newsmy S7, though, could actually be seeing its way overseas – this is according to the company reps and it would be a far better choice to get it for $209.99 (or lower; shipping included).
The S7 ships with Google’s latest OS, Android 4.0.3, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, AmLogic’s dual core 1.5GHz Cortex A9 processor and framing 9.7 inch IPS 10 points capacitive multitouch screen with a 1024 x 768-pixel display.
While that display can’t be summarized as the best buy around, it certainly does the job, even under heavy sunlight (and we experienced that today outside our office in China). The slab’s performance was satisfactory during our quick demo, including navigating the device menus and playing a few HD videos. Whereas its built-in loud speaker at the back of course won’t fill a room (or perhaps, even inside a noisy car), that’s actually when the 3.5mm audio jack goes to work – high music consumption users will appreciate that pumping in their ears a bit more. The tablet also sports HDMI port for doing a 1080p video output to a TV, together with one mini-USB connector for syncing and updates, a micro-SD card slot (augmenting up to 32 gigs more capacity) and a power port.
The Newsmy S7 also included built-in mic and a 2-megapixel front facing camera (however, no rear-facing camera,). Generally, the 10.1-ounce package is fairly polished, considering its price. We’ve already done our part, adding the Newsmy S7 to our shelves, plus some hands on, now it’s your time to decide if a $209 dual core tablet is a must-have. In the meantime, we believe you’ve already perused the gallery above (a feast for the eyes, yes?)
