The second new tablet made by Hisense and distributed by retail giant Walmart, the Sero 7 Pro is the companion to the Sero 7 Lite. But while the Lite is a low-end device intended for the very cheapest users, the Sero 7 Pro is aimed squarely at a slightly more upscale market, packing in a 1.3GHz quad core processor, GPS, NFC, and Android 4.2 into a package that's still priced at just $150, which is $50 less than Google's competing model. Can an unknown manufacturer really go toe-to-toe with Google's Nexus 7? We take a look. Superficially, the Sero 7 Pro has a lot in common with the Lite version. They're both very simple black-and-brown designs with a generic tablet shape and a fairly wide bezel around the screen. There are a couple of external differences, though. For one, the back casing is now covered by a textured rubbery coating, giving it a reasonably good non-slip quality. There's a larger rear sticker identifying where the NFC antenna is, which happens to be right above what are now dual speakers, compared to the single speaker in the cheaper tablet. The microSD slot is covered by a small door, where the Lite had it uncovered. Otherwise though, there's not much physical difference.
Known for its value-priced TVs, Hisense is getting in on the small tablet market with its new Sero 7 Pro. This $149 Android slate (sold exclusively at Walmart) boasts some impressive specs for the price, including a 1280 x 800-pixel display and a 1.3-GHz quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. And Hisense does all this for $50 less than Google's Nexus 7 or Amazon's 7 Kindle Fire HD, as well as $20 less than HP's new Slate 7. That sounds like a darn good deal, and based on our testing, it is.Click to EnlargeThe front of the Sero 7 Pro sports a familiar rectangular with a black bezel. A 2-megapixel webcam oddly sits in the top right corner in portrait mode. The brown, textured back filled with tiny square indentations is a little more unique. Overall, the smooth sides and curved edges combined with the easily grippable back offer a more premium feel than the ASUS MeMO Pad, even though both slates are made of plastic.The power button and a physical volume rocker sit on the top right side of the tablet, while the top edge houses the various ports. In addition to the standard microUSB port, a miniHDMI (not found on its competitors) and a flap-covered microSD card slot line the edge, next to the 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone.
