There are more 7-inch tablets on the market, but they’re not all created equal, says Tony Bradley, a technology writer for PCWorld, who explains some common user complaints.
- Kindle Fire HD. Nearly a third of user complaints involve the ads that appear on the lock screen, and a quarter of users say the device is slow when multitasking.
- Nook HD. Twenty percent of users complain about slow multitasking and 30% say the touchscreen is not responsive enough.
- Google Nexus 7. A third of users have problems with system updates and another third complain about the display.
- Apple iPad Mini. Twenty percent of users say its back plate scratches easily. Another 20% are disappointed the display is not Retina like the full-size iPad.
