To anyone keeping up with the tablet market, the ZTE Light Tab 2 can be considered as a decent offering. It is unsurprisingly zippy and solidly constructed. The only problem is the lack of Google Play accessibility and the outdated OS (Android 2.3). There are a 7” display with 1024×600 pixels resolution, 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip and 512MB of RAM. Although there’s no getting away from the outdated Gingerbread, it should still be adequate for average users. Just like many Chinese-made 7” tablets, it supports voice calls and text messages, which allows you to use the tablet as a secondary smartphone. Using it as a primary phone in your daily life is a bit impractical though.
At nearly 400 grams the Light Tab 2 isn’t too heavy, although the BlackBerry Playbook is lighter and more comfortable to use long term. The tablet has a fairly thick bezel around the display and behind the back cover you’ll find a 3400 mAh battery. Despite its small size, the tablet handles multimedia adequately. Its browser supports Flash 10.1, which allows you to play Flash-based games and apps, as well as using many video-sharing websites. The ZTE Light Tab 2 comes with many preinstalled apps and although the tablet doesn’t come with an official Google Play app, you can still get apps from other legitimate websites.
