On Thursday Medion launched its 8 inch tablet called Lifetab S7852 (MD 98625) for just 130 euro. The Medion Lifetab S7852 offers excellent performance for a cheap price. In our quick test we loved its peppy processor and build quality thanks to its aluminum casing. However we were not very impressed with its lousy camera and unstable GPS reception.
Medion S7852 specifications
Medion S7852 features a Rockchip RK3188 processor with four cores clocked at 1.6 GHz that is backed by healthy 1 gigabyte of RAM and 16GB of flash storage.
It is still an eye catcher thanks to 7.85 inch display with HD resolution and advanced hyper viewing angle with IPS technology. It measures 200 x 137 x 9 mm and weighs 370 grams.
Medion S7852 on sale at Aldi
The tablet is already on sale at Aldi for 130 euros. During our hands on review, we found that the major hiccup is its slow internal storage that offers mere 14 MB / s of read speed. This results in inferior user experience. Processing power is good enough but it is like having a Ferrari that is held back by tires from Vauxhall Astra.
