The Hisense Sero 7 LT has been billed since prior to its introduction as a stripped-down, less expensive version of the company’s Sero 7 Pro. Ultimately, however, this is just about the *best* that can be said for the Sero 7 LT, a device that works like a test model at the local mall’s electronics store – a test model that’s been thoroughly beaten on by raucous teens.
We’re told that the “LT” in “Sero 7 LT” stands for “Lite,” but it could just as easily be an acronym for something like “Lightweight Tablet” in terms of performance. To save the customer $50 off the Sero 7 Pro suggested retail price, here’s what you won’t get in the Sero 7 LT: A decent amount of internal memory (despite the 8 GB advertised, internal software – gods know what – reduces this to under 5 GB before booting up for the first time). Also no Bluetooth.
You read that right: No Bluetooth. And forget GPS; the Sero 7 LT purchaser is lucky to get Wi Fi support. At this point, most readers are probably recalling the old cliché, “You get what you pay for,” but we’ll throw a couple more specs out there: the 1.3 GHZ dual-core processor and a poorly responsive, 1024 x 600-pixel resolution touchscreen.
Yeah, it didn’t impress us, either.
