Review of the tablet Explay Surfer 7.02: small, but perfectly formed
Not so long ago the company Explay has released a new line of tablets — Surfer, which so far have included two new portable gadget: seven – and eight-inch. Their main difference from the devices belonging to series Informer is the improved performance that engineers have achieved through the installation of dual-core processors. Not to mention that the new devices look more interesting to their predecessors, because the vast majority of “informers” is made of plastic. Released on the market tablet series Surfer can boast of a thin metal housings. Hope next will be better, in the meantime, proceed to testing younger new Explay Surfer 7.02.
The new product managed to surprise us even before direct contact is too unusual she box. Really, you don’t often see a tablet that comes in a boring package. The box design uses a minimal amount of paint, and one that is, I went strictly on the transfer of technical characteristics of the device — short for front side and detail on the back.
The package from Surfer-tablets is different from that which was many “informers”, that is still possible. In the box are:
- soft case;
- Mini USB cable → USB;
- Mini USB cable → USB (OTG);
- in-ear headphones iRiver;
- warranty card and quick documentation.
In such rich complete set Explay once again only to praise — and a greater desire not. It is nice, when together with a brand new gadget manufacturer provides not only trash the user’s guide, isn’t it?
Appearance tablets to experiment difficult, therefore, Explay Surfer 7.02 is similar, oddly enough, on the tablet. Another thing is that due to the thin metal housing of the tablet looks interesting cheap colleagues, and any innovative solutions in terms of design (and any other) is not part of the budget devices. The front side is completely covered by a protective panel. Around the screen are easy to grab black frame, upper (developer, judging by the inscriptions on the back panel, involves the use of the gadget for a vertical orientation) part of which is placed the eye 0.3 MP camera.
The tablet controls and interfaces scattered throughout the upper and lower faces of the gadget. At first made the power button (lock) the device, and a standard 3.5 mm audiojack. On the lower side there is (left to right) slot for memory cards microSD, microUSB interface, reset button, video output microHDMI and home key, which, incidentally, is very easy with the habit to confuse with a button to Wake the gadget. Hardware “rocker” the volume of the novelty no — sound control touch, is located in the system tray Android.
Covering the back panel is rough, thanks to him, the gadget securely lies in the hands and does not slip out of them. Of useful items on it — only a tiny mono speaker. One problem, the silver paint is very easy to damage.
Perhaps the main advantage of the exterior Surfer 7.02 may be considered a small thickness is only 9.7 mm! Also in the list of strengths you can make another, very important — build quality. From Surfer 7.02 at the height of it. All the “guts” securely fastened — if the camera shake, hang out, nothing will happen. Also, there was no backlash by physical impact. The only problem is at high pressure Flex as the rear panel and the glass, and until the contact with the matrix. However, the overall appearance and Assembly Explay Surfer 7.02 we were very pleased.
