We don’t know the exact purpose of this device, as it doesn’t have cellular connectivity at all! Toshiba Excite Go is a smartphone, or should we say tablet, boasting a 7″ display with 600 x 1024 pixels resolution. Its display is lackluster, not so sharp and color reproduction isn’t the best we’ve seen. Because it’s released back in 2014, it has a very outdated Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) operating system, which is a bare minimum or even below the minimum for today’s standards. It’s important not to forget to mention it’s thickness; a huge 10.9mm on the 7″ screen. If you don’t have big hands, please stay clear of this device.
Another downside of this device is the price. It costs almost $100, but it really isn’t worth that much. With its outdated OS, lackluster hardware and just 1 GB of RAM coupled with 8 GB of internal storage, Toshiba Excite Go isn’t a device you’ll be happy to buy for yourself.

My brother bought this tablet to me for my bday and it isn't great. 1024×600 pixels resolution on a 6" screen? It doesn't sound neither LOOK good here. Android 6.0 is okay but with that small resolution, VGA cameras and a lackluster hardware, don't expect from me to give it a good score.
