Review of the new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora Limited English Edition
1. High resolution IPS screen – 5 star
IPS screen on the new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora is switched from Hitachi to LG. It is very bright and very accurate color representation. 1024×600 pixel HD screen gives you the same feeling as iPhone 4′s retina display . Very wide view angle.
2. Long battery life – 4 star
The battery life of the new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora is better than most of the other Android tablets. The standby time is a couple days.
4. Super HD 2160P – 5 star
This is 4X resolution than your HD TV 1080P. You don’t really need such high resolution on a tablet , but when you hook the new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora onto your big HD TV using HDMI cable, you see the difference. It’s really amazing.
7. English limited edition – 5 star
You have to make sure you buy the new English limited edition Aurora (from Ainol’s oversea distributor : uPlay Tablet ), which has English package, warranty card, Quick Start Guide, and English language apps. Most sellers are selling the Chinese version, which has everything in Chinese. Unless you can read Chinese, the Chinese version will give you a lots of trouble. Although the seller can set the language in English, but it will switch back to Chinese whenever you reset the tablet . In addition, all manuals and most of the pre-installed apps are Chinese as well.
8. Google Play and Flash – 5 star
Again make sure you buy the new English limited edition of Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora. It has Google Market and Flash pre-installed. The Chinese version doesn’t have Google Market and Flash.
9. 3D games – 4 star
The new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora plays most games with no problem and they look even better than ever with a clear crisp image.
10. HDMI port – 5 star
This allows you to view games and videos on your big screen HD TV.
11. The latest Google Android 4 .0.3 firmware – 5 star
The new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora is running the latest Google Android 4 .0.3 software, which is much better than early versions from Google.
1. HD Camera – 3 star
Higher resolution than most cameras you found on Android tablets. However, it only has front-facing camera, no back-facing camera.
2. Only mini USB – 3 star
Only one mini USB port, no standard USB port on the new Ainol NOVO 7 Aurora, but Ainol has provided mini USB to USB cable.
3. No bluetooth
