Hisense Sero 7 Pro Review

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.

      Lou, it should work with ANY device that has an HDMI input port. You just need to make sure you have the mini HDMI to HDMI cable to plug it in.

    If “the guy” (Schlomo) new how to work a computer then maybe he wouldn’t have asked such a silly, ironic, stupid question, If Only He Had Watched The Video, Then His Question Would Have Been Answered For Him !!! !!D!OT!!

    Downloads (music,video,pictures) store on the internal memory. Only video and pictures taken with the device’s camera will store on a sd card. This fills up internal memory fast. Would be a very good device if this could be fixed.

      It can be fixed with root and custom ROM. Both already available on XDA forums. Enjoy.

      Let me get this right. You don’t want to watch the video because it’s 12 minutes long, but you want me to answer questions about the product even though you’re not willing to hear what I had to say in the video?
