The Galaxy Tab 2 is a very very good Android tablet, running Android 4.0 OS, with a 1024×600 screen, 8GB internetal memory (expandable via microSD up to 32GB), Wi-Fi + Blue Tooth. Though the screen isn’t up past 1280 like most 7”, this screen is still very bright and vivid, though it could be better for video playback. This tablet features dual cameras, which most 7” tablets actually lack. The biggest problem to us was the screen again, as it isn’t up to par with other 7” tablets, but it’s still bearable. The smoothness of Android 4.0 on this tablets hardware makes for a pure and enjoyable Android experience. A great tablet!

Speaking of butter, project butter on this tablets Jelly Bean Android OS is so smooth it will leave you trembling. Two versions, 8GB and 16GB priced respectively. Google Play is integrated and features tons of apps/movies/tv’shows. This tablet unfortunetly lacks expandability, but with the cloud services its no problem. This tablet is simply our favorite 7” and probably Android tablet period.

Wifi support, 7” screen with front facing camera and mic. Android 4.0 is packed on this puppy, and its exandable up to 32GB via a microSD slot. Though the screen is only 800x480pixels its still a decent picture for its price. This is definetely a budget tablet that performs basic Android operations at a decent speed.

iRulu 7” Cortex A10  6.5/10

4GB – $82
Expandable up to 32GB via microSD
Android 4.0 OS
Great for high-school student/College low on cash
Basic Android performance/features

Another budget Tablet running Android 4.0 with support for OpenGL 2.0 3D graphics makes for good gaming. A 800×480 resolution is decent but no the best. Youll find built in 4GB of memory, which is small, but expandable to 32GB. This tablet isn’t anything special by a long shot, but at half the price and some of the big hitters, its great for a high-school student with a part time job who wants to get a piece of the new tablet craze.

8GB and 16GB – $379 – $429
1280×800 HD Screen looks amazing
Android 4.0
NVIDIA tegra 2 dual core processor

The Toshiba Thrive is a bit pricey compared to what you can get for a 7” tablet. The price is almost warranted if you have the money. It’s resolution matches the Nexus 7’s gorgeous 1280×800 – making for some amazing HD video playback on this tablet as well. It’s a big thicker and feels more sturdy then the Nexus 7. It runs Android 4.0 – and is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. Ontop of this is an NVIDIA GeForce GPU, making for some great gaming. Built in bluetooth, GPS, and more, its a pretty basic tablet but with more of a kick. Coming in a 32GB and 16GB version it is a powerful tablet, but with the prices of other tablets we cant justify the price tag. Wait a few months, and once it drops to the $199 range, pull the trigger. We love this tablet, just not its price.


Dell Streak 7  7/10

$193 – 16GB
Android 2.2
Tegra T20 Dual Core Processor

It’s an older tablet whoes price has dropped to compete with the Nexus. It doesnt beat the Nexus, due to its sub par screen, but its still a good experiene. Built in Wifi, and a very crisp 5MP rear camera, which is beyond good for a tablet. The overall design of this tablet though feels amazing in our hands, not to thin, not to thick, but good for someone with bigger hamds. USB 2.0 port makes it great, and it can even capture 720P video.
