11 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Average

The average user rating of this Ematic tablet is 68% based on 42 user reviews.

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers of this age and type, the Ematic EGD172 is not 3G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might also want to consider the HP ElitePad 900[plb_1529601_price], the Point of View TAB-P6412[plb_2662901_price], or the Samsung SM-T235 Galaxy Tab 4[plb_2449417_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G Compatible

Most tablets of a similar age and type to the EGD172 are not 4G compatible. The Ematic EGD172 is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.

If you are looking for a tablet that is 4G compatible then you might want to consider the SM-T217 Galaxy Tab 3[pl_2231848_price], or the SM-T337 Galaxy Tab 4[pl_2232356_price] both from Samsung or the Motorola ET1[plb_1805693_price].

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The average internal storage capacity of tablet computers that came out more than two years ago is 19GB, and the internal storage capacity range from 0.25GB to 260GB. With an internal storage capacity of only 8 gigabytes, the Ematic EGD172 has a fairly small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been around for around the same time as the EGD172.

Other 8GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Lisciani Mio Tab[plb_2495996_price], the Denver TAD-97052[plb_2199201_price], or the Wolder Neo[plb_1927252_price].

If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Woxter 102 Q[plb_2496055_price] (16GB), the LG G Pad 8.3[plb_2666272_price] (16GB), or the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0[plb_3256485_price] (16GB) which is also higher rated.

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of tablet computers of this type and age range from 3.5" to 19", and the average screen size is 8.6". The Ematic EGD172 has one of the smaller screen sizes (only 7 inches) amongst tablet computers of this age.

We compared all the other 7" tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think because of it's better review score, the SM-T235 Galaxy Tab 4[pl_2449417_price], and the GT-P3110 Galaxy Tab 2[pl_2161365_price] both from Samsung or the Ematic FunTab Pro[plb_1919237_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Ematic EGD078[plb_2479190_price] (7.9"), the Nabi DreamTab HD8[plb_2698573_price] (8"), or the Samsung SM-T360 Galaxy Tab Active[plb_2535757_price] (8") which also has a higher rating.

Only Two Processor Cores

Most tablets of this age and spec have between one and seven processor cores, including the Ematic EGD172 which has two processor cores.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2 processor core tablet computers currently available including the Archos 97 Cobalt[plb_2131286_price], or the Hip Street Aurora 2[plb_1982090_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer more processor cores then you might want to look at the Nabi DreamTab HD8[plb_2698573_price] (3 processor cores and higher rated), the Alcatel Pixi 8[plb_2664778_price] (3 processor cores and higher rated), or the SPC Internet Glee 9[plb_2476284_price] (4 processor cores and higher rated).
