The Kurio 7s vs The Nabi 2 – The Best Tablets for Kids in 2013
The battle squares of between 2 of the best tablets for kids in 2013, the Kurio 7s vs the Nabi 2. With Christmas quickly approaching a lot of parents are getting their research down and even purchasing the kids tablets of their choice before supplies run out. 2 years ago there was a mad dash for tablets for adults and now that we have seen what an interest our children have taken to them, suppliers have met our demands with more durable and child safe products.
An Intro to these Kids Tablets
The Kurio 7s is a revamped version of the original 7 and as you guessed the number represents it's screen size. Some new features they have added are the additional educational program and some upgraded components. It comes with a standard blue bumper to protect the tablet and runs the Android OS, 4.2 Jelly Bean. This definitely going to be a best seller this year.
The Nabi 2 is produced by Fuhu, one of the largest and fastest growing companies in the world. This is due to their expanding line of kids safe tablets. They currently have the Nabi Jr, the Nabi 2, and the Nabi XD. They preload their tablets with the Wings educational app and a lot more. It is also an Android tablet and currently runs the 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Kurio 7s runs a dual core processor that is 1 GHz processor and also has a separate graphics processor and 1 GB of RAM. It runs really smooth with these specs but still doesn't compare to to the 1.3 GHz Tegra 3 Processor with fifth core battery saver and graphics chip. It also contains 1 GB of RAM. This is truly the premier processor in kids tablets, only rivaled by the New Kindle Fire HDX. This is still a definite plus on the side of the Nabi 2 though.
Not a whole lot of difference in this category. Both screens are 7" and have a resolution of 1024 x 600. I can noticeably tell a lot of color or contrast difference in these 2 tablets and is therefore a draw.
Another draw in this category. They both contain 8 GB of internal memory and can be expanded by 32 GB with a micro SD card.
This is another win for the Nabi 2 as it is the most durable Android kids tablet I have ever seen. This video of a drop test done with this tablet was really amazing. The Kurio 7s is also durable but I wouldn't try to replicate this 10 ft drop test.
Both of these tablet companies opted to build and produce their own educational platform. Kurio decided to go with programs by DR Nussbaum and Nabi produced a program called Wings. Both of these have great educational value and leaves us at another stalemate.
For the most part the batteries run about the same amount of time between charges as well. You will get about 8 hours of normal use and as little as 5 hours for web surfing and more intense operations. They are both Lithium Ion batteries and I have heard of no instances of them dying in any short periods post purchase like some of the cheaper kids tablets.
A lot of the features are the same which include WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI port, headphone port, and SD card slot. One noticeable difference will be that the Kurio 7s has 2 cameras instead of the single camera included with the Nabi 2. We will give the features category to the Kurio 7s for this reason. It allows you to take photos and videos from the rear and see what your capturing.
What I Like about the Kurio 7s
Some of the main features I like on this tablet are the option for 8 profiles and 4 different web safe browser settings. I really like all the apps they give you which exceed 60 and you get a bunch of educational content as well. It also runs a newer OS and costs only $150. This is definitely my favorite choice for multiple users or as the family tablet. It is very flexible and has 3 resources to buy content from.Read Full Review Buy Kurio 7s
What I Like about the Nabi 2
The Nabi 2 is super durable and super fast. It is my favorite all around kids tablet because it is so flexible in every aspect I value as a parent. They also let you utilize a chore list and points system within the educational content so your children can earn new apps through completing work and educational content. They have also just released a Nickelodeon and Disney Edition for even more content at only $20 more.Read Nabi 2 ReviewSee Nickelodeon EditionSee Disney Edition Buy Nabi 2
These are both great kids tablets for 2013. In the battle between these 2 tablets the Kurio 7s vs Nabi 2 it is more a less a draw. The Kurio 7s is an optimal product for the family. If you are buying a tablet for just one child then I would spend the extra money and get a Nabi 2. Either way you won't be disappointed with your purchase and both will add a lot of value to your child's life.
