The processor frequencys of tablet computers of this age and spec range from 1GHz to 2.3GHz, and the average processor frequency is 1.4GHz.

If you would prefer a faster processor frequency then you might also want to consider the LG V500[plb_2625050_price] (1.7GHz).

Across all the tablets that are a comparable age to the Curie 2 the depths range from 4mm to 280mm, and the average depth is 46mm. With a depth of only 8.5 millimeters, the Curie 2 has a fairly thin depth compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been available for around the same time as the Curie 2.

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The bq Curie 2 is not 3G. Most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the Curie 2 are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

The Curie 2 is not 4G, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other tablets of this spec and age are also not 4G.

Tablet computers which are 4G that might also be worth considering include the Samsung SM-T311 Galaxy Tab 3[plb_1955439_price].

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a rear camera resolution (numeric) of only 2 megapixels, the Curie 2 has a quite low rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago. Tablets of a comparable age and type to the Curie 2 have rear camera resolution (numeric)s of between 0.3MP and 8MP.

If you would prefer a tablet computer with a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-T330 Galaxy Tab 4[plb_2876252_price] (3MP) which also has a higher rating.

Only 1600 X 1200 Pixels Rear Camera Resolution

The Curie 2 has a maximum rear camera resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. That's 39% less rear camera resolution than a 2048 x 1536 pixels tablet computer, which is the most common rear camera resolution.

A 1600 x 1200 pixels rear camera resolution is in fact the worst rear camera resolution amongst all tablets of a comparable spec and age to the Curie 2.

Amongst similar types of tablet the best rear camera resolution is 3264 x 2448 pixels.

4 Other reasons to consider the bq Curie 2

Released Over Three Years Ago

It was over three years ago when bq released the Curie 2.

Four Processor Coress

The Curie 2 is a four processor cores tablet computer. That's average compared to the other 210 comparable spec tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years that we have assessed the number of processor coress of.

Tablets with more processor coress that might also be worth looking at include the SM-T320 Galaxy Tab Pro[pl_2234096_price] (8 processor coress), or the SM-T9000 Galaxy Tab Pro[pl_2286417_price] (8 processor coress) both from Samsung which is also higher rated.

Average Internal Storage Capacity

At 16 gigabytes, the Curie 2 has a fairly standard internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets of this type and age.

We compared this tablet to all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad[plb_829095_price], the Samsung GT-P3110 Galaxy Tab 2[plb_1608514_price], and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD[plb_2174852_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger internal storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Linx 7[plb_2666707_price] (32GB).

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 8 inches, the Curie 2 has a relatively standard display diagonal compared to most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 8" tablets currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung SM-T311 Galaxy Tab 3[plb_1955439_price].

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the LG V500[plb_2625050_price] (8.3").
