Velocity Micro Cruz T301 Tablet Review
The performance of the Micro Cruz T301 isn't too bad, especially when it's meant to be a budget Android tablet.
Device & Specs
As frightening as it may seem, both of these tablets are very similar in terms of technical specs and capabilities. However, where the similarities stop is how the device handles... anything. The Cruz Tablet T301 outperforms the r103 in almost every category but battery life, and won't inspire thoughts of violence against an inanimate object in your head.
The screen of the Cruz Tablet T301 is more reflective than that of the r103, as well as more sharp and detailed (read: annoying). Still the backlight is stronger in the Cruz Tablet T301, which goes a small way into making the screen work better in daylight than that of the r103.
Despite the wretchedly bad performance of the r103 in just about every other area, the Cruz Tablet T301 doesn't quite match up in terms of battery life, as it fell short in video playback (it was impossible to compare the eBook reading, as the r103 could not be tested). Still, the advantage of screen brightness may have come at a hefty price for the Cruz Tablet T301..
This one is easy, as the eReader is so horrible with the r103 that it couldn't even be tested properly. It works well on the Cruz Tablet T301, and requires little attention or maintenance. This one goes to the Cruz Tablet T301.
Both have identical internet features, but that's because they're both from the same company and have the same operating system. Neither of these tablets has access to the Android Market, despite the advertisements saying that they run on the Android OS might have implied. In actuality they only have access to a severely reduced selection of apps that were specifically created for the Cruz line of tablets.
