Toshiba Thrive 7
28 June 2012
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.
Summary: 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 charging and build issues.
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
Excerpt: Essentially a shrunken-down version of its predecessor with only a few other changes, the Toshiba Thrive 7-inch tablet is a Honeycomb tablet offering multiple inputs, including microUSB and microSD.
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. We wish it had a full size USB port and a replaceable battery like the 10" Thrive, but a replaceable battery would make it thicker and heavier. The higher than average resolution is a selling point, and the display is colorful and crisp.
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. However, most reviewers agree that there are better options out there for the price and for just a couple hundred more, you can nab yourself an iPad.
Conclusion: O Toshiba Thrive 7 é um tablet mediano com uma tela ótima. No entanto, sua fraca autonomia de bateria e falta de recursos convincentes torna difícil justificar sua escolha diante de outros portáteis de 7” disponíveis no mercado.
Pros: Tela de 1280 x 800. Desempenho estável.
Cons: Impreciso nos comandos touch. Rendimento de bateria decepcionante.
