Toshiba Thrive 7 Review: Less Like The Original Than You Might Think - But That's A Good Thing
17 December 2014
Summary: The Thrive 7 is a big improvement over Toshiba's first attempt at a Honeycomb tablet, but it still feels like it just isn't quite there. The somewhat dated processor, poor battery life, and $380 price point are some substantial cons to overlook in favor of the Thrive 7's connectivity features,...
Summary: The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a reasonably good tablet with very nice display, a decent processor, and the ability to run a wide range of Android apps. It’s more portable than the larger 10 inch tablets that have flooded the market over the last year and with a screen that’s just a tiny bit bigger than...
Conclusion: The Toshiba Thrive 7 is an average tablet with a great screen, but its poor battery life and lack of compelling features make it hard to justify choosing it over some of the better 7-inch tablets out there.
Excerpt: Toshiba hasn't had an easy ride in the tablet market. When we reviewed the original Thrive tablet this July, it wasn’t only thicker and heavier than the rest of the 10-inch tablets out there (Toshiba claimed the bulk was necessary to house an array of full-size ports), but it was also stricken by...
Pros: High resolution, 7-inch display, Good port selection for the size, Nice size and form factor
Cons: Poorly made, plastic creaks, Can get very sluggish, Less than five hours of battery life, Camera placement makes no sense
Conclusion: The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a solid but not standout 7" Android tablet. It relies on 2011's standard 1GHz Tegra 2 CPU for good but not breathtaking performance, and it has a rugged and comfortable design.
Pros: Sharp high res display, rugged design.
Cons: Not much sets it apart from other 7" tablets, thicker and heavier than most.
Toshiba Thrive 7 – is this the Thrive 10 all over again? gadget review
21 October 2011
Conclusion: I actually liked the 10 inch Thrive, except for the fact that it was 10 inch, and I think the Thrive 7 can be a great tablet for those who want a relatively affordable device that will do everything they throw at it.
Excerpt: The Toshiba Thrive 7 is a smaller version of the original 10-inch Thrive and looks nearly identical. It packs the same Tegra 2 chip and 16GB of storage but runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb instead of 3.1. Its best feature is the 1280 x 800 pixel resolution like the 10 incher.
Summary: The 7-inch Thrive has bright, vibrant colours and the sharpest, cleanest text we've seen on a tablet. It's small and light, and plenty of connectivity options. If it is priced right, it will be a winner.
