DISPLAY

Yes, there are bezels! I don’t like it either, but with its affordable price, I wasn’t expecting less. It boasts of a 7-inch IPS LCD display with screen resolution of 1280 x 720p. While the screen resolution on the Lenovo Tab 7 Essential was reduced to 600 x 1024p.

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE

For a low-range tablet, it offers quite an amazing performance. A MediaTek MT8161 chipset and 1.30GHz Quad-core processor should run the tablet swiftly. There’s also 16GB internal storage on the tablet for storing files, upgradeable to 128GB with microSD. For multitasking and app launching, it has just 1GB of RAM. Both run on Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

CAMERA

With the tab 7, you get the 5MP rear camera for capturing beautiful moments and 2MP selfie camera for taking selfies and video calls. On the Lenovo Tab 7 Essential, you only get a 2MP rear camera for photography and another 2MP selfie camera for taking selfies and video calls.

BATTERY

Both tablets are powered by a 3500mAh Non-removable battery.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

The tablet available for just $99, that’s about N35,000 – N40,000. While the Lenovo Tab 7 Essential is available for just $79, that’s about N27,000 – N35,000.
