Make Sure to Go Pro
This is an example of a “Pro” version being much better than the non-Pro. I picked up the Hisense Sero 7 some time back, and didn’t like much about it. The Sero 7 Pro is a different story altogether.
Hisense Sero 7 Pro Specs
For $149, the Sero 7 Pro is one of the best values on the tablet market. For that price you get a Quad Core 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 8GB storage (upgradeable to 40GB with the addition of an 32GB micro SD card), 1 GB RAM, a 7″ 1280 x 800 high definition touchscreen, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), a battery with incredibly long life, and a bunch of additional great features.
Compared to Nexus 7
How does the Sero 7 Pro compare to the Nexus 7? For starters, the Hisense is $50 less, has a mini-HDMI output, and more powerful cameras. The processors are pretty equal, and the Hisense also gives you dual band Wi-Fi, which the Nexus 7 doesn’t.
Compared to Samsung Galaxy Note 8
Comparing against an even more expensive tablet, the Galaxy Note 8 ($399) gives you a 1.6GHz processor compared the the 1.3GHz in the Sero 7 Pro, 16GB of built-in storage, twice as much RAM (2GB), and while both have micro SD slots, the Galaxy Note 8 will let you use cards up to 64GB in size. The Samsung also has a built-in IR Blaster and lets you run two apps side-by-side, as well as a host of features that are important in an enterprise environment. But remember, it’s more than double the price.
Making The Sero 7 Pro Work Like a Computer
The Sero 7 Pro gets even better when you connect it to an external display and use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, and even an external speaker. Add those in, and this $149 tablet starts feeling a lot like a full computer.
