Maxwest enters the affordable tablet space with their compact ORBIT 78DC. This is a 7-inch Android slate aimed at casual users on tight budgets.

Priced low, the dual-core 78DC focuses on core functions over fancy features. It ships with a modest 800 x 480 resolution LCD display, passable dual-core processor, and older Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.

The compact footprint makes it easy to grip in one hand for extended use. Construction utilizes cheaper plastics but build quality seems reasonable. At just 7-inches though, the low resolution screen looks quite pixelated and lacks sharpness.

Processing power stems from an unnamed dual-core 1.6GHz chip. Performance should handle daily tasks fine but struggles with heavy multitasking or 3D gaming.

You also get a paltry 1GB RAM and tiny 8GB storage, with the option to add more via microSD card.

For photography, a basic rear camera allows you to shoot photos and videos without much quality. The front-facing selfie camera also disappoints. Neither sensor contains a flash, resulting in dim or grainy results.

On the plus side, the ORBIT 78DC checks key connectivity boxes. You get Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and HDMI support. Transfer media or charge via the micro USB port. Battery life ratings are unfortunately unavailable.

In closing, the 78DC delivers tablet functionality on the cheap. If you just want a compact slate mainly for light web access, ebook reading, or video watching, it gets the job done.
