For connecting to the internet, Glanzix tab GL-7TA has WiFi 802.11b/g/n. It also has support for external 3G dongles (WCDMA,EVDO, TD-CDMA). Though for connecting 3G dongles, an OTG cable is required since the tablet don’t have full sized USB port, instead houses a mini USB port. The good thing is that the OTG cable comes bundled with the tablet, so you don’t have to spend extra money buying the cable. Since, the mini USB port is OTG compatible, therefore, it is also possible to attach USB pen drives, USB keyboards and mouse to the tablet.
Web Browsing & Video Chat
Glanzix GL-7TA has a front facing 0.3MP camera which is not that great but is good enough to do video chat via Skype. Also, the tablet has Adobe Flash 11.1 support which makes watching streaming videos from sites like YouTube, Netflix, etc. The web browsing experience on this tablet is very smooth.
Loud & Clear Speaker
The speaker of this tablet is loud and clear. However, the speaker is poorly placed on the back side of the tablet. As a result, if it is placed in a case, or lying flat on a table, the sound is greatly reduced. But, holding the tablet in the hand or elevating the tablet off the surface even a little bit solves the problem.
HD Video Playback
The tablet handles all the HD videos very well. It don’t cause any hiccups while playing HD videos. Also, it has a mini HDMI port to connect and enjoy 1080p HD videos on your HDTV. You just need a mini HDMI to HDMI cable as it in not included in the package.
It has a 5 point Capacitive 7″ touch screen having screen resolution of 800×480 pixels which is quite responsive.
It has a 3600MaH battery providing not the very greatest battery life. Though its not that bad too, the battery life can easily be improved with Android Battery Life Enhancer Apps or by reducing screen brightness.
