Hardly had the dust settled upon the smartphone phenomenon, when we were hit by the tablet invasion. Some people argue that tablets are just a gimmick born of sheer commercial sophistry, pure hype and suggestive marketing: first create a concept, however illogical, impractical or downright useless, and then create a “can’t-do-without” aura around it, and consumers are suckers enough to, well, consume! But rabble-rousers notwithstanding, tablets have caught the fancy of the world, and like the Joneses next door, you’ve no choice but to go for them yourself. After all, they do seem to have their advantages. And if you’re in it, might as well go for the best. Here’s a list of the top 10 best 7 inch tablets to buy in 2013 provided by http://vivagran.com/, Take your pick.
1. Google Nexus 7
The Nexus is justifiably flaunted as the best 7-inch tablet around. This Android slate is powered by a powerful quad-core processor, has a beautiful 1920 x 1200 display, excellent front and rear cameras, battery that lasts almost 9 hours, and is fully loaded with fantastic apps and content (remember, it’s from Google!). Yet, it’s highly portable, extremely slim and light, and most impressive of all, comes with an amazing sub-$160 starting price tag. The relatively small internal storage with no expansion options is a slight dampener, but that doesn’t take away anything from what is arguably the best 7-inch tablet in the market today, Android or otherwise.
2. Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9
The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 is all that it’s touted to be: great on looks, solidly built, excellent display with impressive audio, and good Wi-Fi connectivity. But naturally, coming from Amazon, it’s the content that really kindles your fire. Using the HD 8.9 is a simple but pleasurable and satisfying experience, although not being a regular Android, it could come across as just a shade stodgy and a trifle slow. However, it’s still an excellent choice for anyone willing to shell out its relatively high-end price.
3. Asus MeMO Pad HD 7
This is a budget 7-inch tablet, but the MeMO Pad HD 7 packs so many features you’ll wonder how Asus managed to keep the starting price tag so low. This sub-$150 Android 7-inch tablet features a crisp and vibrant 1280 x 800 display. It’s powered by a mighty quad-core processor, has excellent cameras up front and rear, offers internal storage of 16GB with an expandable microSD card slot, and an amazing (nearly) 10 hours of battery life packed, with a multitude of other Android features you can customize. A really great package that fits your pocket – literally and figuratively!
4. Fuhu Nabi 2
An out and out children’s tablet, the Fuhu Nabi 2 is a great pick for several reasons. Although not in the same league as some high end 7-inch tablets, the Android Ice Cream Sandwich based Nabi 2 offers features worth much more than its sub-$200 tag suggests: child-proof design, colorful 1024 x 600 display with excellent audio, powerful Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, and loads of content that’ll keep not just the kids, but also the adults glued. Only glitches are low brightness, a small viewing angle, and a proprietary charger. Overall, an excellent pick for your kids, likely you’ll like it too!
5. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
Let’s tick off the negatives first: the price tag of around $300 is a slight turn off. A couple features just don’t come up to Samsung quality standards. Now that’s over and done with, we can get down to the superlatives. The 8-inch Tab 3 is the best Samsung Galaxy tablet that’s not a Note. In its brown skin with gold trim, it looks great, feels light, and fits cozily in the hand. It has a crisp, colorful display, great performance thanks to its 1.5GB RAM, and expandable memory through a microSD slot, and a useful multi-window display that lets you run two apps simultaneously. So although a tad high priced, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is true value for money.
6. Barnes & Noble Nook HD
The 7-inch tablet’s dimensions are ideal for ebooks, and that’s what the Barnes & Noble Nook HD tablet more or less is. The pinch-me-to-believe-it low starting price of less than $130 is not the Nook’s greatest or only selling point. It’s got a whole lot more USP – a razor sharp display, and an ergonomic design that’s ideal for ebook activities, movies and games – yes, now Google Play is fully accessible to Nook users. And although it misses a few of the standard features you’d expect on a tablet, the Nook knows where its head and heart lie – content. Even the low internal storage of 8GB is complemented by an expandable microSD slot. For its price, this is one of the best 7-inch tablets you can lay your hands on, especially if you’re shopping for your kids!
