9 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This tablet computer received an expert rating of 30 out of 100 from Laptopmag.com. The tablet expert review sites aren't convinced by this tablet.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The average internal storage capacity of similar spec tablets that were released around the same time as the Genesis Prime is 19GB. With an internal storage capacity of only 4 gigabytes, the Genesis Prime has a fairly small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Genesis Prime.

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 4GB internal storage capacity tablets and we think because of it's better review score, the Archos 97, the Denver TAC-70111, and the Ingo SGM20143 Hello Kitty Premium Tablet 7 is also worth considering.

If this tablet internal storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Storex eZee Tab 785 (8GB), the Mediacom 7.0 GO (8GB), or the Samsung SM-T330 Galaxy Tab 4 (8GB) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G Compatible

The Ematic Genesis Prime is not 3G compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other tablet computers that are a similar age to the Genesis Prime are also not 3G compatible.

If you are looking for a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might want to look at the HP ElitePad 900, the SPC Internet Glow 9.7 3G, or the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 which also has a higher rating.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 7" tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Denver TAD-70092, the Motorola ET1, or the Kobo Arc 7.
