So, before I get into the details, let me just say that I am very happy with this tablet. I got the main things I wanted, and when I use it I don’t feel like I’m stepping off a cliff from my Galaxy S20 phone. The multi-core processor and RAM are plenty powerful to make it snappy, the colors and resolution are sharp, the IPS touch-screen is responsive (even with the screen protector I put on it), the battery lasts me days, and the performance leaves nothing to be desired. Also, the OS came with no bloatware whatsoever, though it is in need of a more recent update.
Turns out that this tablet has the goods and then some. The particular CPU chip isn’t very new, but it has built-in HD-Video, Bluetooth 5, bgn/AC WiFi, and DDR4 support. So here is a list of specs I’ve gotten from the tablet itself, not from reading the description or the listing:
• 1.6GHz 8-Core ARM (A-55) CPU
• Built-in GPU (GE8322)
• 3GB RAM
• GPS – Navstar, Glonass, & Beidou
• 64GB Internal storage (1.1GB reserved for system)
• 6000 mAh battery
• 1920x1200 Screen resolution / 280DPI
• 13MP Back Camera & 5MP Front Camera
• WiFi – Both 2.4GHz & 5GHz
• USB-C Charging Port
• MicroSD Card Tray/Slot
• Stereo Speakers
• Headphone jack (above volume buttons)
The built-in GPS has access to the three biggest satellite systems and that’s huge because there is always coverage, and quick acquisition. The only thing it does not have is a vibrating motor, so no buzz notifications or haptic feedback.
Everything else about the tablet it first-class; the IPS screen is clear and the colors are vibrant, the case is made of metal (not cheap plastic) and has a high-end feel to it. The glass on the screen isn’t described as Gorilla glass, so I bought the tempered-glass screen-protector just to be safe. The power and volume buttons are located next to each other on the same side, so propping the tablet on its side does not hinder access to the buttons. It’s charged via a USB-C port which is the new standard, and the SD-card is housed in the now ubiquitous pin-hole style tray at the top of the tablet.
The tablet has it all and feels solid. I haven’t once felt like I was missing anything. I’ve used it for video calls, web-browsing, spreadsheet editing, games, and watching movies, and everything has been smooth and enjoyable. I am very glad to have found this tablet that combines the features I was looking for in a 10” size at a price-point I can live with.
