We have seen many 7â€ tablets emerging into the market in 2012 setting high standards with the likes of Ainol Aurora and Onda VI10. Most compititors have lacked innovation and technology to beat the market leaders in their set benchmarks. However the flat-panel Hyundai A7HD has received extensive attention in late April mainly because of itâ€™s magnesium aluminium alloy body and three-dimensional arc 8.9mm ultra-thin design and a dazzling Samsung IPS wide viewing angle screen producing 1024 x 600 high-definition display at 16.7 million colours.
Although smaller in size, it has many advantages over Appleâ€™s iPad. Its award winning 1.5GHz cortex A8 CPU delivers immense power (iPad2 A5 1Ghz) and offers many core techs including GPU, DPU and VEPU, yet energy saving engineering can hold it on standby for 20 days. The processor is paired up with the Mali 400 3D GPU, DDR3 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage.
It operates on the all new designed Android 4.0.3 OS which is specifically designed for Tablet PCs. It is better matched with this CPU and runs flawlessly with no lags or crashes. The user interface offers better android experience and ease of use. Itâ€™s more smooth at transition and all keys have been virtualised. You can even merge the file folder like the Apple iOS, switch between multi-tasks, plus all new widget tools are available. Furthermore, Adobe Flash 11 and HTML5 is supported so you can watch Youtube, Netflix, 4OD etc. Also can be used as an E-Book reader supporting many formats.
The A7HD is equipped with a front 1.3 MP camera producing HD pictures. By using the built-in microphone and speakers, you can make video calls via Skype, QQ and other third-party applications.
Unlike other 7â€ tablets using hard plastic casing, Hyundai have take a sophisticated approach in encapsulating the hardware in an ultra slim body measuring only 8.9mm made from magnesium and aluminium alloy body. Not only does this give it a stylus look and sturdy feel, it makes it lightweight weighing only 280 grams. Furthermore, the outer shell better resists fall, extrusion and impact. The design of the body is a three-dimensional arc which makes it a joy holding.
Below is a demonstration of how the A7HD measures against the iPad 3, iPhone 4, Kindle Fire and the Galaxy tab.
Hyundai A7HD uses tempered glass with the same iPad screen panels, the performance in the picture is transparent and pure, light transmission is very good, LCD screen is always bright and images are vibrant. The smooth, high hardness of the glass surface is crystal clear, yet finger clicks and stroke operation is very smooth.
Samsungâ€™s IPS High Definition capacity screen produces 1024x768 resolutions visible at wide viewing angles and no matter where you are in the room or under the sun, the screen is always clear. Video playback is at Super HD 2160P @ 16,000,000 colors (iPad 720P), that's 4 times better than 1080P â€“ Both displaying mind blowing graphics on its 7â€ screen and your external HDTV. It also comes with a direct 2D-to-3D converter and offers an incredible gaming experience thanks to its highly responsive G-Senors.
The clarity of the iPhone 4 warm-screen is displayed below, you can see high colour saturation causes the screen reddish colour and slight distortion, while the HYUNDAI A7HD screen produces more accurate colour with contrast ratio 900:1 and brightness 400 cd/m2 making the picture more natural and richer.
3D decoding technology allows the user to wear the red and blue 3D glasses, the playback needs to be saved in a 3D format. You can also connect the tablet to your 3DTV and it will carry over the 3D video through the HDMI connection, so you can watch 3DM and play Android 3D supported games on your big screen.
Lightening fast CPU, 30 % faster than its successor
This tablet runs on a powerful AllWinner A10 ARM Cortex architecture CPU, which is clocked at 1.5Ghz quadrant measured, it competes with the Nvidia Tegra 2 performance. The tablet delivers flawless graphics and zero buffering when playing OpenGL 3D games (download Free from android market). Multi tasking runs flawlessly and so does HD video playback even when streaming. DDR3 1GB ram allows for a number of tasks and programs to be run together with no decline in speed or responsiveness. As well as allowing for data to be processed swifter, guaranteeing them high spec tablet video games run better than ever! It even performs better against mainstream tablets as demonstrated below from a live reading.
Yet, it is integrated with two energy-saving technologies -Â DVFS Dynamic FM and Smart PMU regulator intelligent power management system which can dynamically be adjusted according to use. Furthermore, users can conduct their own CPU overclocking/underclocking operations, higher performance or longer battery life to meet the needs. The Aurora has up to 25 days long standby time, and undoubtedly other market leading tablets cannot. Itâ€™s capable of 35 hours of music listening, 8 hours of video playback, 7 hours surfing the web and more than five hours playing games including those high powered 3D accelerated, all from a single recharge. Integrated PMU power management and DVFS technology can be customised to further improve the battery life.
This truly is a milestone Android tablet and genuinely offers a better alternative compared with the successful 7â€ Ainol Aurora and other leading market brands. Not only does the Hyundai A7HD matches top specifications found in these successful devices, its slim body and sleek design puts it ahead.
