MSI Enjoy 71, the competition for 7 ″ low cost tablets

We have many tablets on the market and the launch of the Nexus 7 by Google many months ago, has broken all the guidelines and little by little the market is adapting to new needs. Tablets They begin to lower their prices even more and the mid-range adapts to those € 200 of the cheapest model of the great G device.

Let's see the specifications that announce us from Mobilegeeks And what this MSI Enjoy 71 tablet can offer us:

  • Screen: It is made with a 7 ″ IPS panel with a resolution of 1024 × 600 px, which gives it a pixel density 155 ppi. The truth is that the IPS panel is attractive, but the resolution leaves a lot to be desired, not even reaching 200 ppi.

  • Dimensions, materials and weight: will have some dimensions of 191x119x8.9 mm and a weight of 299 grams. A thickness and weight more than adequate for a low cost tablet. The material used is unknown, but the photos show a metallic look on the back.

  • Hardware: has a heart Amlogic AML8726-MX with a processor 1.5 GHz Dual Core ARM Cortex-A9 and a GPU Mali-400 MP, and has 1 GB RAM. The truth is that it looks like a interesting for a low cost device.

  • Storage: has a 8 GB internal memory expandable by microSD card. That internal memory may be sufficient as long as it is not fragmented.

  • Cameras: will have a 2 Mpx rear camera and a front camera of 0.3 Mpx. The truth is that both are quite fair, I am one of those who thinks that a tablet is better, to have a decent front camera, to make video calls, instead of having two of poor quality, because the 2 Mpx rear camera does not it seems not enough to take a photograph with the minimum quality.

  • Connectivity: It has Wi-Fi in its n variant, microUSB of which it is unknown if it accepts MHL protocol, 3.5 mm Jack audio connector and mini-HDMI port. The mini-HDMI option is very interesting and I miss the GPS.

  • Software: will leave the factory with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

  • Price and availability: It is known that it will go on sale with a price close to € 130 but the date of arrival on the European market is unknown.

How conclusion to say that for such a low price it must be recognized that it has interesting specifications, they are not spectacular, nor can they be compared to other tablets but the truth is that this tablet is getting about € 30/50 below than we are seeing today for similar tablets, processors with two cores, 1 GB of RAM and double cameras, so it can be positioned as a good alternative. As major failures, it must be said that the resolution of the screen and the Android version are the most criticizable points. The cameras aren't particularly noteworthy either.
