- Price. The Coby Kyros MID 7065-8 is a lot more affordable in comparison to other tables sold in the market today. For a first tablet, this is not a bad bargain to consider. Android tablets these days are far more advanced and have more to offer to consumers than in the past. For students, this price range is very reasonable especially if you will be using your tablet mostly for research and web browsing. Android applications from the Google Play store provide a lot of student friendly applications for school.
- Google Play store provides more diversity. The equivalent of the Apple applications store also provides a vast array of applications that consumers can use on a daily basis. The Play store boasts of a variety of games for entertainment that caters to all ages as well as business related applications and other organizational tools to help in day-to-day activities.
- Fairly modest processor and system. The Coby MID is a mid level entry tablet so it is understandable that it does not have the premium features that high-end tablets do. But the upside is that for the amount that you pay for it, it would get the job done efficiently.
- Low quality camera. Unlike most gadgets today, the Coby MID does not have an amazing camera piece attached to it. It only has a VGA camera in the front and no camera at the back. This camera is often used for video chatting via Skype or other video chat applications. It has a 0.3 megapixel resolution.
- Low pixel density. If you are planning to purchase a tablet for the purpose of watching videos and streaming movies, you should probably rethink this tablet. The resolution of this tablet does not do HD movies justice. Well, it’s the sacrifice you have to make with such an affordable price tag.
The Coby Kyros MID7065-8 is a reasonably priced tablet that is advisable for first time tablet owners that are on a shoe string budget. It’s definitely a steal for people that just need a tablet for simple web browsing, gaming and note taking. But if you are expecting high quality resolution for your media needs, you should reconsider another tablet.
