Most Android users who are aware of the Hyundai T7 know that the tablet was not meant to enter the cut-throat competition among hardware manufacturers. It was a moderately powered Android tablet that made its name for the price tag of 169.99. The Hyundai T7S is the direct successor and models the original version in many ways. However, it has also managed to make noticeable hardware changes without bumping up the price too much.
The Hyundai T7S costs about $186 and higher, officially, while there are some websites online claiming that the device can be purchased at $169.99, usually through coupons or special offers. AliExpress has sellers that go with an even lower price tag. Consumers should always practice caution when purchasing through online vendors. Other retailers for this device include Boxwill, Pandawill, and Merimobiles. You’ll find it being sold as a quad-core Android tablet.
The Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core cpu isn’t exactly cutting-edge hardware, but it doesn’t serve as something to complain about on a budget device. Mali 400 graphics will power the IPS 7-inch 1280×800 resolution display. It is a capacitive LCD screen. On the bright side of things, Hyundai decided to double the RAM and storage from the Hyundai T7 to 2GB RAM and 16GB storage space on the T7S. The increased RAM is something we’re starting to see on devices throughout the market, but this is rather commendable for a budget device. Furthermore, you’ll have a 5 megapixel camera, a 0.3 megapixel front-faced camera and 3300 mAh battery. Remember that the Hyundai T7 only had a 2MP camera, so this is another welcomed upgrade for the T7S. Unfortunately, the device holds onto Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 4.0.4. It would have really been nice to see budget devices with a higher version. But once again, this is not something uncommon. Apparently, this device should not be upgraded or rooted without the manufacturer’s consent, as it tends to be fragile while performing firmware changes.
The device supports, Skype, the Google Play Store, and WiFi 802.11b/g/n. 3G will be a little tricker, as it isn’t built in, but supports certain external methods of 3G. It has a relatively acceptable build with plastic, mainly. The plastic build isn’t going to give you a premium feel, and we can’t say much about the build quality of the screen in this case either. The device does provide acceptable hardware to use at a bargain price, which will be the source of its customers.
