Orbo Jr Tablet Review

SUMMARY

The Orbo Jr is a beautifually engineered, and affordable 7 inch wifi tablet. This one is one of our favorites out of the ‘$100 and under’ price range!

The Orbo Jr is a fully featured Android tablet and the rubber bumper can easily be removed for adult use.

In our experience with low priced tablets, this is one of the best we’ve seen. The graphics are amazing, it runs fast, and it has a small form factor made to fit snuggly into your hands.

There is an overwhelming amount of positive reviews and very little negatives.

  • Awesome graphics quality
  • Preloaded with apps and games

Our Orbo Jr Tablet Review covers the most important features of a tablet. The features should be considered while making a purchase to ascertain whether it is right for you.

Summary of User Reviews

The user reviews for this tablet are very similar to our own. Most feel that it is a great purchase for the price, and that it can hold its own as an adult tablet as well as a child’s tablet. To make it a child’s tablet, one must go to the Google Play store and select educational apps and games made especially for kids. Otherwise, it can be easily be used as an adult tablet by removing the rubber casing (or not if you prefer).

Here are just a few of the great reviews

This one was submitted by Isaura Rizzo on Amazon:

Bought the tablet as a b-day gift for my 1 yr old for traveling. It is perfect she can view Netflix or youtube while on wifi or downloaded videos on the road to keep her calm. Still need to download educational apps that she can interact with.

This is one by Amazon user Onsjas1225:

Orbo Jr Tablet Features

Processor

The Orbo Jr is known to have fast load times while running even the most demanding apps and games! It runs seamlessly and without any sluggishness. This has been confirmed by numerous customer reviews. In fact, many low priced tablets tend to have issues with freezing in the middle of game play. But this one is in a league of its own.

Display

The resolution on this tablet is 1024×600 dpi. This means high quality graphics, vibrant colors, and smooth edges. When comparing this resolution to others, it becomes clear why so many are satisfied with the graphics. Many 7 inch tablets come with a 800×480 resolution, and it is quite common for 10 inch tablets to have 1024×600. And the fact that the Orbo Jr is a 7 inch tablet means that the pixels have more density and less area to cover. So in terms of this display, this tablet wins again!

Storage

The Orbo Jr has 4GB of onboard memory. Most most buyers, this is enough for installing multitudes of games and apps from the Google Play store. But if you are a heavy user, you might benefit from the fact that it has a microSD card slot. This allws you to expand storage to as much as 32GB.

Battery

During continuous play, this tablet will run for 4 hours straight according to product advertisements. However, there is no way of telling what metrics were used to determine the length of time. All we can report is that we have not come across a single customer that has said that the battery life is too short. That being said, a battery life of only 4 hours is not stellar.

Weight

This tablet is said to be very light and easy to handle with its rubber edges. When taken out of the box, one gets the impression that this is a high quality tablet with its lightness and quality rubber. The lightweight feeling of this tablet will help prevent drops and damage.

Software

The Orbo Jr 7 inch tablet runs on Android 4.1. It is compatible with most Google Play apps, and comes preloaded with the Google Play store and other useful apps. YouTube and Netflix can be installed, and Internet Explorer comes with it out of the package.

For your kids, you will need to download their educational apps, as they do not come preloaded. According to many satisfies customers, kids have so much fun with this tablet that they spend hours on it. You can use it as well to watch videos, read ebooks, check your email, and browse the web. It is adult friendly! You can choose from thousands of productivity apps, and play popular video games like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja!

The Verdict

The Orbo Jr is a high quality tablet for the very low price of $59 at the time of this writing. It has high quality graphics, runs very fast, and gives access to the Google Play store. For many tablets, it is rare to get a high percentage of good customer reviews. But the Orbo Jr seems to be one of a kind when it comes to affordable tablets!

  1. Are there parental controls?

    • Hi Maria,

      Thank you for visiting our kids tablet reviews. Although we love the Orbo Jr. for its robust hardware and low price, I don’t know whether the Orbo Jr. comes with parental controls.

      However, since it can access the Google Play store, you might be able to install the Kids Place – Parental Control App…

  2. Can you watch full length movies on the orbo jr.?

  3. Is this tablet child proof….such as if one of my kids throws the device down the stairs…..or in the toilet…..jumps onto it is still going to be the same or destroyed?

    • Hi Angel,

      Like many other kids tablets, this one has been designed to withstand a lot of abuse. However, whether it can withstand your kids jumping on it or throwing it in the toilet is a question that is not easily answered. Electronics can only go so far before they break. But the great part about the Orbo Jr is that it is an affordable tablet. If you are worried about your kids damaging their tablet, this one is an awesome choice because of the cost as well as the value.
