  1. I had to look up what version of Android nougat is referencing. Ok… It’s 7.0 with an update last month getting it to 7.1.2

    Hopefully, these tablets ship with the latest or are upgradeable.

  2. Based on the listed clock speeds, the two hi-res tablets also likely use the Snapdragon 425.

    1. Same as the Moto g5 if anyone needs something to compare it to. At that price though, I’d get a refurb Lenovo Yoga Book.

    1. Screen is a bit more square. Most find it better for apps, productivity, browsing, etc. You get black bars on top and bottom when watching a full screen movie though.

      1. > You get black bars on top and bottom when watching a full screen movie though.

        Both MX Player and VLC allow you to zoom in. You get a slightly larger picture at the cost of just some vertical/horizontal background. Similar to what was done with 2:35:1 on 4:3 TV but hardly noticeable from 16:9 to 16:10. Looks great. You get a larger view, especially in smaller screens.

        It’s a factor, for some, on the limited players incorporated into some apps and services. Fixable, cause it’s software, if google & others spend some of their $$ on user-friendly tweaks instead of the mountains of moola used collecting and sharing data.

    2. Maybe because this would make them marginally better in portrait mode for reading ebooks. My Kobo Arc 7HD tablet had the same resolution.

  3. Those look good, until you compare them with the NVidia Shield Tablet K1, which would *still* be
    the king of the Android tablets if NVidia actually sold it.

  4. 16GB is not enough storage. Even with an SD slot, you need 32GB just for the apps.

    1. Agreed, I’m okay with using SD cards, but with a device like this I’m not entirely convinced that it would support the speed of UHS class cards. If it was limited to Class 10 speeds, it would be a horrible user experience.

      If I was guaranteed that it supported the fastest SD cards, I would be okay with using an SD card.

      I had a tablet that only supported SD cards speeds around 10mbps. It was dreadful. It was horribly slow to run Apps off the card. Even storing photos on it was terrible, thumbnails would take about 30 seconds to load when I opened the Gallery app.

      SD cards are not a good solution, when the support of speed is ambiguous.
