The Ideal Budget Tablet For Blogging – My Family Ties

Alcatel ONETOUCH Pixi 7

Having a small affordable tablet is a real asset to a blogger. To be able to take a portable reliable tablet en route to an event, a day out or to use to for some essential social media sharing is invaluable especially the Alcatel Onetouch Pixi 7 as it is such good value at under £70.00

 I tend to rely on my IMac and my phone for all my blogging needs, and although both my daughter’s have tablets (kindle’s) I still haven’t got around to trying one out for myself even though the value and potability is ideal. So the opportunity to review the Alcatel Onetouch Pixi 7 couldn’t have come at a better time, I will be honest though when the tablet was delivered it was hard to keep it away from my daughters as they were both really keen to have a try!

What I like about the Alcatel tablet it is very light (499 g) easy to navigate and at 7 inches in size is small enough to fit into your handbag or even your jacket pocket. There is a micro SD slot on the side of the tablet to supplement the device’s internal memory, and a headset jack at the top of the tablet that gives good quality sound. The tablet is quick to load, has four hours of charge time, although if you are using the wifi it does decrease a little and it is easy to navigate around the systems and apps. 

The screen display is clear and bright but not as crystal clear as you would get for a higher resolution more expensive models. This is one of the disadvantages of the tablet, the screen display and also the quality of the photos, as the front and back camera has 0.3 megapixel count which results in lower quality photos, you really have to make sure when you take any photos that you have the best light you possibly can. Having said that I really wouldn’t use my tablet for taking photo’s so this aspect doesn’t bother me, I just stick to using my iPhone or DSLR for taking any photos I want. 

Although it has these downsides it really doesn’t detract from the tablet’s usefulness, using the wifi to surf the net, playing angry birds (the kids have already found their favourite games to play on it!) watching You Tube (my teenager’s favourite app) and for me to use social media for my blog and to write posts in the most convenient portable way.  

I have been using this tablet over the past week and have found it easy to navigate, an essential feature for me as anything too technical or complicated does put me off, and also really good for using for writing up blog posts and using social media. While being an ideal little tablet for work it also has been really great for browsing the web, playing on games as well as doing my online banking. A perfect tablet for work as well as recreation, and a great addition to your holiday items as it is small enough to fit in your onboard luggage. This would be a great Christmas or birthday gift for a first tablet (adult or child) equally it would make a useful and portable blogging tool to take with you as I have found. The price is excellent and at under £70.00 it’s bound to be a popular choice this Christmas to put under the tree for a technology lover.
