Reviews Word on the street for the Toshiba Excite 7.7


8.0
In fact, nearly everything in our Excite 10 review holds true for the Excite 7.7: it's fast, very stable and the quality is top notch.

6.4
Budget tablets are expected to compromise performance and design to meet their bargain prices, but every year the standard for what's expected from a budget tablet increases.

6.8
Well, it does so-so with outdoor scenery shots, but still, its details are flat and color production is on the cooler side.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

And, thanks to the 1280x800 resolution on a such a small screen (191 PPI), everything is crisp and sharp.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)
As ever with this screen type, colours are vivid, viewing angles excellent and contrast levels very good.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)
Every color is vibrant, popping off of the display like nothing I've ever seen before on anything larger than the 4.65" display of my Galaxy Nexus.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)

Ports

The audio enhancement feature clearly improved the sound quality of all audio when turned on, enhancing the previously muffled sound to something with more clarity.
by c|net (May, 2012)
A trio of micro connections may not command masses of space, but fitting them all into a 7.7mm frame is nevertheless impressive.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)
Basically, all these combine to make the audio experience better - and they actually work.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)

Apps

The full suite of Google apps are on board including the Store, Google Books, web browser, email, Gmail, Music, Videos (with rental and purchase), YouTube, Gallery, Maps and Navigation.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
And, when combined with the 'sound effects' in Play Music, they can really make a difference to how good your tunes (or movies) sound.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)
Matias Duarte said that the Nexus 7 is the perfect size for gaming; after using the Excite 7.7, I definitely agree with this statement.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)

Camera

Rounding out features is a 2-megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel back camera.
by c|net (Jun, 2012)
The rear 5 megapixel camera delivers thoroughly average photos and video by tablet standards, and the LED flash does help when taking photos in dim to dark rooms.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
As expected, the camera is about as basic as it gets – it doesn't even support any sort of manual or auto focus or have a flash.
by Android Police (Nov, 2013)

Operating System

It is, without a doubt, the most beautiful display that I've ever seen on an Android tablet.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)
This is easily the best looking display I've ever seen on a tablet, bar none.
by Android Police (Jul, 2012)
For those looking for a straight Android tablet rather than a convertible netbook style tablet, we can easily recommend the Toshiba Excite 10.
