9 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This tablet received a score of 30 out of 100 from tablet expert review website Laptopmag.com. This means that experts really don't rate this Ematic tablet computer very highly.

Very Small Internal Storage Capacity

The smallest internal storage capacity of tablets that have been around for more than two years is 0.25GB, the largest is 260GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 19GB. At only 4 gigabytes, the Ematic Genesis Prime has a quite small internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 4GB internal storage capacity tablet computers to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the 97 Xenon, and the 97 both from Archos or the Denver TAC-70111 is also worth considering.

Tablets with a larger internal storage capacity that might be worth considering include the Storex eZee Tab 785 (8GB), the Master Digital MID905 3G (8GB), or the SPC Internet Glow 10.1 (8GB) which also has a higher rating.

Not 3G

Like most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for more than two years, the Genesis Prime is not 3G.

If you want a tablet that is 3G then you might want to look at the HP ElitePad 900 ($250.00), the Pocketbook SURFpad 3, or the Samsung SM-T9000 Galaxy Tab Pro which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G

The Genesis Prime is not 4G. Most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that are a similar age to the Genesis Prime are also not 4G.

Tablets which are 4G that might be worth looking at include the SM-T311 Galaxy Tab 3, the GT-N8000 Galaxy Note, or the SM-T237 Galaxy Tab 4 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The average display diagonal of tablets of this spec and age is 8.7". The Ematic Genesis Prime has one of the smaller display diagonals (only 7 inches) amongst tablets of this age.

We compared all the other 7" tablet computers to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire, and the Kindle Fire HD all from Amazon is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a tablet with a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the Storex eZee Tab 785 (7.85"), the Pocketbook SURFpad 3 (7.85"), or the Ematic EGD078 ($90.99) (7.9") which is also higher rated.
