Shopping for a decent tablet but on a budget? Check out the MeLE M7 Android Tablet. This tablet sports a 7” screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, Quad core 1.5GHz processor, 2 GB RAM, 2.0 megapixels front camera, 802.11 b/g/n Wifi, SD memory card slot, HDMI TV video out port, micro USB sync/charge port, secondary charge port, 3.5mm headphone jack, protective smart cover, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. During my testing, I found this tablet to be useful for gaming, web browsing, video calls (Skype), note taking, music playing, e-book reading, Facebook, Twitter, and movie watching.
The downside is that this tablet is missing Bluetooth, GPS, cellular data, and a rear camera for taking photos other than of yourself. If your smartphone already does all these things, then this tablet is still quite a good option - especially considering the above-mentioned missing features that keep the price of this tablet from skyrocketing. It is worth mentioning that various external 3G cellular dongles (add on devices) can be plugged into the M7 Tablet. Also, portable 3G/WiFi hotspots will easily work with the M7.
The battery in the M7 is rated to last an average of 6 hours. While testing, I found this to be fairly accurate. However, your run time will vary depending on the tasks you are preforming and system settings, such as screen brightness, WiFi, and processor use.
The M7 tablet accompanied me on a long international flight where I used it to read an e-book, watch movies, read pre-downloaded offline news, listen to some music and even try a few popular games. Having the 7” screen was really nice for extended use compared to my small smartphone screen. By switching all my entertainment to this tablet, my smartphone battery was spared for more important tasks such as navigation, communication, and photo taking while on several road trips as well.
Several of the ports on the tablet are hidden behind a small removable door. While I like that the ports are protected, the door is not tethered to the tablet when removed and will likely be quickly lost by most users. One strange feature is the M7’s dual means of charging. Behind the removable door, there is a standard micro USB sync/charge port. Next to the headphone jack outside the door, there is a second tiny charging plug similar to some Bluetooth earpiece charging plugs. I assume this second port is to allow charging without opening the door. One of the coolest features on this tablet is its HDMI output port. This lets you connect the M7 to the HDMI port of your TV, thus allowing you to display your movies and music on your TV!
All said and done, this simple Android tablet should satisfy your entertainment needs and save you some money in the process.
