7-inch Cube U9GT4 Android Jelly Bean tablet for $130
Bargain hunters who are looking for a well-priced tablet that has an up-to-date Android OS should take a look at the Cube U9GT4. This 7-inch Android Jelly Bean-powered slate boasts relatively good specs for the price of just a little over one US Benjamin.
Competitively priced at $130, the Cube U9GT4 is a dual-core tablet that can get the job done without breaking the bank. Underneath the hood lies the 1.6GHz Cortex-A9 processor with a Mali-400 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD card), and the screen resolution isn’t too bad either—coming in at 1024×600.
The U9GT4 isn’t exactly an elite among the 7-inchers, but it’s certainly not a bottom feeder either. For about $200, people can buy the Google Nexus 7, but despite its beefy quad-core Tegra 3 processor, the Nexus 7 doesn’t have an expansion port for additional storage. The 8GB Nexus 7 will run out of memory quick if users pile on the video and music files. Hence, that’s a big downside when it comes to owning a Nexus 7.
Despite being a good 7-inch Android tablet, the U9GT4 does lack a few features that may not make it as attractive to consumers. One of the features that the U9GT4 does lack is the GPS functionality, which the Nexus 7 does have.
