Tablet Comparison: Dragon Touch Y88X vs Contixo LA703 Kids

Dragon Touch Y88XThe Dragon Touch Y88X and the Contixio LA703 Kids are both 7″ Android tablets designed for children, so how do the two compare? Both tablets have a 7″ touchscreen display and the resolution for both is 1024×600 pixels. Each tablet comes with a protective silicone bumper with reinforced corners intended to reduce the chance of the tablet being broken if it is dropped. That of the Y88X comes in four different colours whilst that of the LA703 comes in two different styles and in a wide range of colours.

Both tablets are Android tablets and both run the same version, 4.4 KitKat. Each tablet comes with 8 gigabytes (GB) of internal memory, and each also has a micro SD card slot which can be used to expand the available memory using memory cards of up to 32GB in size. Each tablet also has a quad core processor. The LA703 has 1GB of RAM, double that of the Y88X which only has 512 megabytes.

Both tablets have speakers, a microphone and a headphone jack. Each has a micro USB port for connecting to other devices and recharging the tablet but the Y88X also has a AC port for charging as well. Both tablets come with a front facing and a rear facing camera. The LA703’s front camera has a resolution of 0.3 megapixels and the rear 2.0 MP. The resolutions of the cameras on the Y88X are more uncertain, as contradictory information was received from the company; the front camera is probably at least 0.3MP and the rear at least 2.0MP, although some statements said that the rear camera had a massive 5.0MP resolution.

Each tablet comes with parental controls and in both cases they are provided through the Zoodles app.

The two tablets are in general fairly similar. The Contixio LA703 kids is perhaps slightly more powerful – the added RAM will make a difference – and has a better average battery life, as well as a better guarantee and a better range of cases. The Dragon Touch Y88X is generally cheaper, although customer service is reportedly somewhat lacking.
