Neu Tab Review – Are they Legit? [2020 Update]

I’ve searched the deepest corners of the internet but I wasn’t able to find anything other than a Facebook page for the Neu Tab company.

They brand themselves as one of the bestselling tablets on Amazon but all we know is that the Neu Tab tablets are affordable and have mediocre reviews.

These devices were released several years ago so it lags behind some of the newer budget options.

Let’s find out more in our quick Neu Tab review.

The Neu Tab S8 Is probably the only Neu Tab device that comes close to a modern-day tablet.


The device weighs 0.69lb (312.9g) and is lighter than the AMAZON FIRE HD 8 which has a similar design and display size. The 8-inch display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and has the highest PPI of the whole bunch at 189.

A recommended PPI for a tablet above 200 and the ‘best’ PPI of a Neu Tab is below that threshold. So, I think this says it all.


At the core, the tablet has a MediaTek 8163 processor which is poorly supported by the 1GB RAM and mere 16GB storage capacity. The tablet ships with Android 6 Marshmallow.

This 10.1” tablet has the most recent Android version from the entire roundup. This is Android Nougat (version 7). However, it can be upgraded to the newer version.


The display has a 1024 x 600 resolution with a disappointing PPI of 118.

The K1S has a weight of 1.3lb (589.7g) and is heavier than most 10.1” tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1” tablet weighs only 1.01lb (460g).


The processor at the core is a Quad Core 4 x 1.3 GHz paired with a 1GB RAM and a 16GB internal storage.

With a 104 PPI on a 9inch tablet, you can’t expect the crispest display.


The 9-inch tablet weighs 0.88lb (399.2g) and has the oldest running Android version, Jelly Bean 4.2. For comparison, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 weighs 1.25lb (567g).

I don’t know what Neu Tab was going for with an 800 x 480 resolution. I’ve seen budget Chinese smartphones with better resolutions.


At the core, you’ll find a Broadcom Quad-Core ARMv7 processor that clocks around 1.5Ghz. This is paired with an 8GB internal storage and get this, a 512MB RAM. This may have been sufficient (and not by much) when it was released several years ago, but it’s hard to get by in 2020.

I consider 7” tablets to be phablets.


In my experience, I’d rather go for a 6+ inch smartphone rather than a 7-inch tablet in terms of portability because a 6” smartphone can still fit in my pocket.

The device weighs 0.63lb (285.8g) and for comparison, the Amazon Fire HD 7 with a similar screen size weighs 0.74lbs (337g).

The 7-inch display has a resolution of 1024 x 600 and a PPI of 169. Neu Tab is completely off the display game.

At the core, you get a MediaTek Quad-Core processor that clocks around 1.5Ghz and is coupled with a 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage.

Another 7-inch tablet from Neu Tab.

This is the lightest 7-inch tablet in our roundup at 0.56lb(254.0g), it is much lighter than other 7” tablets.

All the 7” displays have a similar resolution at 1024 x 600 and a PPI of 169. While the G7 runs on Android 6, the N7S Pro ships with Android Lollipop.

At the core, the device has a chip from the Chinese SoC manufacturer, Allwinner. The quad-core processor clocks at around 1.2Ghz.


Similar to the G7 you get a 1GB RAM paired with an 8GB internal storage.

The I7 from Neu Tab has quite a few customer reviews on Amazon, which comes as surprise due to the limited RAM capacity.

The Neu Tab I7 weighs 0.67lb (303.9g) and is the heaviest out of all the 7-inch Neu Tab devices. It is almost as heavy as the Neu Tab S8. The 7-inch display has a resolution of 1024 x 600 and a PPI of 169.

The tablet device has a processor from the Chinese chipset manufacturer Rockchip. The Dual-core processor clocks at 1.2Ghz.
 

The I7 has the lowest internal storage at 4GB, an OS upgrade to a newer version will probably take up the entire space.
 

RAM capacity disappoints again at 512MB.

 It looks like they’ve been out of the game for quite a while now, so this makes sense as to why they don’t even have a website.

You need a minimum of 2GB RAM capacity nowadays to accomplish simple tasks, surf the web, check your favorite social media apps, and watch your favorite videos. 1GB might do the job with a few lags here and there but 512MB is going to make for a frustrating tablet experience.

So, there you have it. Neu Tab may have been a worthy contender in the budget segment back when these devices were released. But, currently, you’re better off considering some of the newer budget brands.
