The recent changes seen in the mobile industry mark the coming of a new era.
Gone are the days when the Android based tablets used to consider tablet industry their exclusive domain. A noteworthy entry of the Finnish Company, Nokia, with the release of Lumia series, reshaped the future of the tablet industry. The mid range Lumia 1320 tablet from Nokia has impressed the potential user looking forward to a different tablet experience other than Android.
In comparison, the Chinese manufacturer, Gionee, sprung up with its Elife E7 tablet, giving other handsets a run for their money. The mid-range tablet comes equipped with high-end spec sheet and upgraded features, mostly seen in top-class flagship handsets. Going with the latest trend of the market, the Chinese manufacturer released its compact version, Elife E7 Mini.
Let us compare the two premium tablets in terms of their software and hardware specifications.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 tablet comes equipped with the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system. The large form factor of the budget phablet, offer the potential user with an additional tile column. As many as six tiles can be placed in one row, leaving enough space for rearranging your home screen to your heart’s desire.
However, despite the changes made, the interface mostly remains unchanged, both in looks and functionality. Regardless, the handset offers some decent features to contend with.
In comparison, the Gionee Elife E7 Mini handset runs an Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The company calls it Amigo 2.0. It does not come with a separate application launcher; instead, the application icons are combined on the home screen.
However, the operating system of the E7 Mini handset suffers from similar problems, as that of its elder sibling, the Elife E7 handset. The extra bells and whistles equipped in the Elife E7 Mini handset hampers the smooth functioning of the handset. In addition, the flat and colorful icons appear childish in appearance.
Another major issue with the Gionee’s UI is the absence of widgets. Despite the software being rich in features, we hope that the company updates the software for a much smoother functioning handset.
The Nokia Lumia 1320 handset comprises of a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, running at a speed of 1.7GHz. The processor is aptly complimented with a RAM of 1GB. However, the Lumia 1320 runs smoothly, but in terms of gaming, the medium-heavy games are unplayable with such configuration. It is certainly not a good choice for heavy gamers, but capable enough in most scenarios.
In comparison, the Gionee Elife E7 Mini handset comes equipped with a powerful processor under the hood. The handset derives its power from an octa core MT6592 processor, manufactured by MediaTek and clocked at 1.7GHz. The processor is accompanied with a Mali-450 graphic processor and a RAM of 1GB. However, the handset functions flawlessly, with the only drawback being a dull software.
The handset might perform decently well with graphic rich games, but multitasking poses a problem for the handset, due to an array of platforms running in the background.
