There are a huge number of 7-inch Android tablets available on the market around the $150 price range, and while some of them have proven great value for money, there are others that you should avoid. While we would hate to run down a tablet that is aimed at people on a tight budget, we do not like the idea of you purchasing one, only to find that they do not live up to expectations.
One such device is the Monster M7 tablet, which is a Walmart exclusive. In a review that was conducted earlier this month by Consumer Reports, it states that this tablet should be avoided at all costs, but why is that?
In the review it was found that the Monster M7 tablet had problems with staying active throughout its review. It was in the process of having extensive battery life tests that it would often freeze. Most of us would perform a shutdown and restart, which is just what the reviewers did, but the issue happened again.
It is hard to know if this was just a faulty unit or if these Monster M7 tablet issues goes much further than that. Consumer Reports is asking that we avoid this tablet at all costs, even if you are enticed by some great deals by Walmart throughout November.
Just so you know, a system update is not planned anytime soon because the tech support team said an update was not expected for at least 8 months, which seems very odd.
We’d love to know if you have had any issues with your Monster M7 tablet because this could be a one-off.
