Tablet Express’s Dragon Touch Y88X and the Kurio 7S are both 7″ Android tablets designed to be used by children, so how do the two tablets compare to each other?
Each has a 7″ touchscreen that has a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. Each also comes with a protective bumper intended to reduce the chances of damage if the tablet is dropped. The Y88X’s bumper comes in a wider range of colours than the 7S.
Both tablets are Android tablets, with the 7S running the 4.2 Jelly Bean version of the operating system whilst the Y88X runs the more up to date 4.4 KitKat. Each tablet has access to the entire Android ecosystem, at least for adults.
Both tablets come with 8 gigabytes (GB) of internal memory and both have a SD card port allowing the available memory to be expanded by the use of memory cards of up to 32GB in size. The processor in the Y88X is a quad core whilst that in the 7S is only a dual core.
Both come with speakers, a headphone socket and a microphone, but the Y88X also comes with a separate AC charging port.
Each tablet comes with two cameras, one front facing and one rear facing. The front facing one on the Kurio tablet is 0.3 megapixels (MP) in resolution and the rear facing one is 2.1MP. It is not known for certain what the resolution of the two cameras on the Dragon Touch tablet are, and inquiries to the manufacturer have provided conflicting responses. It is believed that the front facing one has a resolution of at least 0.3MP and the rear facing one a resolution of at least 2.0MP, although there have been statements from the manufacturer that the rear facing camera has a well above typical 5.0MP resolution.
Both come with parental controls, those on the Y88X provided by the Zoodles app and those on the 7S provided by Kurio.
The Dragon Touch Y88X is generally either comparable to or more powerful than the Kurio 7S, and it tends to be cheaper as well. Battery life on the Y88X is typically below that of the 7S though.
