Hisense Sero 8 Pro: Affordable Android tablet, fantastic screen [review]

 

With tablets it's usually true that you get what you pay for. The more you can afford to spend on a device, the better the product you'll end up with. That said, there are some decent, very affordable tablets available. Take the new

While there are definite shortcomings with the Sero 8 Pro, it’s hard to fault a tablet that offers such a great screen for such a reasonable price. If you intend to use it mostly for media consumption, then you’ll likely have very few complaints.

Hisense Sero 8

 

How good can a £70 tablet be?

Solid and reliable ; Good screen for the price ; Pure Android

Some stutters in use ; Poor battery life

A competent ultra-cheap tablet, but there are better ones if you can find the best deals.

Hisense Sero 8 Pro Tablet

 

With a beautiful screen, solid innards and a sleek, well-constructed body – Hisense certainly got it right with the Sero 8 Pro tablet.

Beautiful screen, impressive metal body, good sound, solid innards

Slippery and difficult to pick up, BAD bloatware, average battery life

Hisense Sero 8

 

Slick, no bloatware, great performance for the price. I bought this solely for reading graphic novels, and some light internet browsing, and it's absolutely perfect for that.

For the price, none so far. Just know what you're getting - a decently performing tablet for a cheap price.

Great Tablet with issue

 

Will take another chance on one of these in the hopes I got a lemon and can do better... too many good things in the package not to try once more,.,, RMA approved... will keep you posted

Great features, brilliant display, right price

Display issue (flickering screen) right out of the box that got worse and worse to the point that the screen flickers so much now, no one can get any use out of the device

Great Little Tab

 

Like I said before, got it at a DEEP discount for being refurbished and starting to show some age. But quad-core with a GB of RAM runs most things very smoothly, Though I am an avid task-killer and never run more than an app or two at a time (two is...

Pure Android Kitkat, like I'm used to on my phone. Has a quad core (which beats my phone) processor and a nice bit of RAM as well all for a real cheap price. Granted I got a refurb for a further discount, you really can't beat what this tablet can do...

Camera is TERRIBLE, and i'm talking about the better front facing camera. The rear one shouldn't even be looked at. But if you're the type of person to take pictures with a tablet then well, newegg won't let me put what's wrong with you here in this...

Hisense Sero 8 E2281 8.0-inch Tablet PC - Cortex A9 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Processor - 1 GB DDR2 RAM - 16 GB Storage - Android 4.4.2 KitKat - Grey

 

Everything seems to work as a new device, just a couple of very small marks in the case

Discovered after I received it that this tablet does *NOT* have a GPS receiver. For my intended use, this reduces it's value
