Toshiba Thrive 7
27 December 2011
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.
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.
