A few new 7-inch Android 10 tablets have hit the marketplace at the end of 2020, so it’s time for a quick comparison between them.
The leading 7-inch tablet has been the Fire 7 for a long time now, because that cheap $49 tablet still offers some usability as well as quality, which it is hard for other tablet brands to match. But some brands have still launched similarly priced 7-inch tablets with Android 10, which is an alternative to the Fire OS tablets from Amazon.
The Fire 7 has a 7-inch battery life, a 1024 x 600 resolution screen, and 2MP front and rear cameras. It has 16GB and 32GB storage options, with 1GB of RAM, and a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8163V processor which give it Geekbench 4 benchmark scores of 650 in single-core, and 1800 in multi-core scores.
That tablet is beaten in performance by the new Android 10 edition of Onn 7, Walmart’s own tablet brand.
The battery life is actually shorter, at just 4 1/2 hours long, and the screen resolution is still 1024 x 600, with 2MP front and rear cameras, and 16GB of storage. But it’s also powered by 2GB of RAM and a quad-core 2.0 GHz Mediatek MT8168B processor, which gives it higher benchmark scores of 725 in single-core, and 2170 in multi-core.
In terms of performance, we have the new Hyundai HyTab 7 in third place. The 7-inch screen has a resolution of 1024 x 600, 2MP front and rear cameras, and 4 hour battery life. The hardware configuration is a little different, with 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, and a quad-core Allwinner A100 processor, giving it a single-core score of 660, and a multi-core score of 1750.
The last new 7-inch Android 10 tablet, is the RCA Voyager 7. It runs the Android 10 Go edition, and has a 1024 x 600 screen resolution, 2MP and 1MP cameras, a 6 hour battery life, and 16GB of storage. Despite the 2GB of RAM and 1.2 GHz quad-core Rockchip processor, it has the lowest benchmark score, of 590 in single-core, and 1750 in multi-core.
Of course, the Fire 7 offers the most services and features which none of the others can compete with, but it’s always good to have alternatives.
