EvoMax Tablet Features

Size isn't the only thing that matters when it comes to evaluating your tablet's screen. You also want to consider the resolution. Think of screen resolution as the measure of your screen's crispness. The higher the pixel count, the more detail you'll be able to see. The screen resolution on the EvoMax is 800x480 on the 7 inch and 1024x600 on the 10.2 inch. That's a little bit low -- the $200-$250 Nexus 7 has a resolution of 1280x800 -- but not too shabby for the price [source: Perlow].

All of the EvoMax tablets come with a camera built in that can also record video, but the resolution is very low: between .3 and 1.3 megapixels, depending on which model you buy. That might work fine for you, but keep in mind that many mobile devices offer a much higher resolution. The iPhone 4, for example, has a 5 megapixel camera [source: Apple]. The Nexus 7's camera only has 1.2 megapixels, though, so as far as Android tablets in that price range go, it's about average [source: Nexus].

Of course, recording video is no fun without audio, and the EvoMax has a built-in microphone for recording audio. It also includes a music player so you can play the music that you stored on the tablet or use any online music streaming service you want.

If you want to surf the Web on your EvoMax, they've got you covered. It comes with a network card, so anywhere there's WiFi, you should be able to check e-mail and play on the Internet.

The EvoMax can also function as an e-reader, so you can use it to read books just like an iPad or a Kindle Fire. The specs on the Web site say that the LCD screen is readable even outdoors, but it doesn't mention that the screen is antiglare. So you may need to purchase an anti-glare screen cover.

Bottom line: If you're looking for a cheap tablet and don't mind sacrificing some of the quality for a lower price, the EvoMax tablet might work for you. Just as when you're shopping for any electronics, the trick is to look at the specs and features and ask yourself if it will do what you need it to do.
