Neocore E1 10.1 Inch Google Android Tablet – Fast With Lots of Storage
Neocore have a solid reputation for building high quality, reliable and stable tablets that offer great value for money, and they certainly deliver on their promises with the very impressive E1 10.1 inch Google android.
The first surprising feature for a tablet in this price range is the real glass screen, which is durable and scratch resistant.
The attractive slate grey colour gives the E1 a stylish look which is discreet enough for professional use so you won’t feel too obtrusive taking it into the office.
Another noticeable feature of the E1 is the rubberised back which offers a comfortable, secure grip and lessens the risk of the device slipping out of your hands. This also makes it a good choice as a family tablet, especially for those with heavy-handed, younger kids.
As well as being very easy to set up and use, the E1 is an incredibly speedy performer with 5GHz Wi-Fi for faster downloads and browsing. The quad core processor is responsive and slick, making the tablet great for multi-tasking. It’s reliable and works well for everyday tasks such as web browsing, emailing, YouTube, Kindle and catch-up TV.
Mid-level games play well, although you may find the E1 a bit slow for intense, high demand games.
The screen is bright and colourful, although you do lose a bit of visibility and definition if watching at an angle. The large 10.1 inch display is ideal for watching movies and your favourite TV shows, while you have the option of connecting it up to your TV via the mini HDMI port for big screen viewing.
The E1 comes with 16 GB of storage, but you can increase this to 256GB with an external memory card via the micro SD slot, enabling you to download and store a massive amount of movies and music.
The E1 is equipped with dual speakers, but you can’t expect absolute top notch sound quality with a tablet at this price. It can be a bit tinny, so you’re better off using headphones for game playing and movie watching.
The two cameras aren’t great quality, but this is a tablet, not a dedicated camera. Shots can be a bit grainy, but are perfectly adequate for Snap-chatting and kids’ selfies.
A major plus point for the E1 is the excellent battery life, up to 10 hours which is well above the average and far longer than many of the more expensive, high spec models.
Speedy and responsive quad core, 64-bit processor and 5GHz Wi-Fi for fast downloads and browsing.
The large 10.1 inch IPS screen is the ideal size for watching TV shows, movies and playing games. An added bonus is the real glass screen which is durable and scratch resistant.
The E1 is GPS and Bluetooth enabled, and also features a mini HDMI port and micro USB card slot making it a great all-rounder for family and business use.
The E1 comes with 1GB RAM of memory and 16GB of internal storage which can be extended to 256GB with an external card.
Offering up to 10 hours of battery life, the E1 is ideal for Netflix marathons or long game playing sessions.
The E1 also comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty and free customer support for extra peace of mind.
The Final Word
When it comes to budget priced tablets, Neocore is a reliable and solid brand and the E1 is one of the best on the budget tablet market. It may lack the more sophisticated features and sound quality of higher spec models, but it’s by no means a ‘basic’ tablet.
Fast, responsive and reliable, the E1 is great all-round performer offering even greater value for money.
Up to 256GB storage
Microsoft Surface Go 10″ tablet – Best 10 inch Tablet
Sleek and stylish with a high quality build design, the Microsoft Surface GO 10 inch tablet is a versatile and capable device that offers Windows 10 capabilities in a compact and portable form.
Essentially, the Surface GO is the Surface Pro but in a smaller and more affordable package which will appeal to the student market. The design differs slightly, in that the Surface GO has a more ergonomic look, with softer, rounded edges compared to the sharp angles of the Surface Pro.
The Surface GO weighs just 522g and fits easily into your bag without weighing it down. It comes with a functional kickstand which allows you to draw and take notes at a more comfortable angle.
For those who want full laptop mode, a removable type cover keyboard is available to buy separately. The signature type cover features ergonomic full-sized keys and a glass trackpad which are comfortable to use once you get used to the slightly tighter typing experience.
Although not as powerful as the Surface Pro, the Surface GO still offers a smooth and responsive performance which is ideal for general everyday tasks. The tablet comes with Windows 10 in S mode which offers a good degree of security but lacks the power needed for heavy duty game playing. However, you can simply download the full version of Windows 10 for a better all-round performance.
The 1,800 x 1,200 display screen has a very impressive image quality making it a real pleasure to watch movies, although it’s not quite as sharp as its main rival, the latest iPad. Sound quality is also a high standard and will more than satisfy those who want a deeper, more powerful audio.
Usually camera quality isn’t great on tablets, which is primarily what the Surface GO is. However, in this case, both the 5MP front and 8MP rear cameras work very well. The front camera offers crisp and clear images when used as a webcam and is ideal for video calling.
This version of the Surface GO comes with 8GB RAM which can be extended up to 128GB via the built-in SSD card slot, something the iPad lacks. It’s worth considering if you want a more versatile tablet.
Battery life is claimed to be around 9 hours, which is plenty of time for daily workloads or bingeing on your favourite Netflix shows.
On a slightly negative note, if you want the full laptop experience, you’ll need to spend a bit more money as the type cover keyboard, mouse and surface pen are all sold separately.
The Surface GO comes with a powerful Intel Pentium Gold Processor, 615 Graphics, and built-in WiFi for seamless connectivity.
Windows 10 S mode offers Microsoft security, Windows Defender and parental controls for whole family use. This can be easily upgraded to the full version of Windows 10 which is free to download. Office 365 is also available at an additional cost.
Windows Hello facial recognition allows for a hands-free log in and separate profiles for each member of the family.
The versatile tablet can be extended to full lap top mode with a detachable Surface signature type cover with full-sized keyboard (sold separately).
The Surface GO comes with 8GB RAM of memory which can be extended to 128GB via the SSD card slot. It also features a powerful USB type C port for extra versatility.
The Final Word
Beautifully designed, with superior sound and image quality, the Surface GO is a great choice for those who want a practical tablet with all the benefits of Windows usability.
It may not be quite as powerful as the latest iPad, but it’s certainly more practical. A versatile and portable tablet that’s ideal for home, uni and professional use.

Versatile and robust with a long lasting battery, the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Android tablet offers great value for money with some very handy features to enhance your user experience.
Encased in a sturdy Aluminium frame, the Lenovo Tab 3 offers style combined with durability making it an ideal for home use or travelling.
The Tab 3 features a multi-mode kickstand, rotatable camera and a curved battery situated along the side of the device.

Grip is enhanced by the rubberised back which makes the tablet feel more robust – ideal for younger or more heavy handed users.
The Tab 3 isn’t the most powerful tablet on the market. It comes with an entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Android 5.1 operating system. It is fine for everyday tasks such as emailing, browsing and watching catch up TV, but it’s a bit limited when it comes to heavy-duty gaming.
Although only 1280 x 800 pixels, the HD screen is vibrant and colourful enough, delivering an impressive image quality for movie watching and casual game playing.
Sound quality is very impressive, and is enhanced by the Dolby Atmos sound system which creates a rich and immersive home theatre and music experience.
The most notable feature is the integrated, multi-mode kickstand which makes the Tab 3 one of the most versatile tablets around. The unique feature allows you to fold back the kickstand by almost 180 degrees. In tilt mode you can prop it up to follow recipes, take notes or even eat why scrolling. There is even a handy hook hole so you can hang it on the wall.
The Tab 3 comes with just one 8MP camera. But that’s all you need, as it’s 180 degree rotatable. It also features hand-gestured controls so you can take selfies by simply opening and closing your hand.
Another impressive feature is the incredibly long battery life; up to 18 hours on a full charge. This, coupled with the extendable micro SD card slot means the Tab 3 is perfect for watching downloaded movies on long car journeys or flights.
The integrated metal kickstand allows you to position the Tab 3 practically anywhere making it an incredibly versatile tablet. Ideal for reading in bed, following recipes, or hanging on the wall to watch a movie.
The 8 megapixel camera rotates to 180 degrees, so can be used for taking snaps, selfies and video calling, or you can set it up as a security camera.
The Tab 3 is incorporated with AnyPen technology and is compatible with any conductive object that acts like a pen. There’s no need to buy a dedicated stylus.
The battery lasts for up to 18 hours on a full charge making the Tab 3 particularly useful for travelling and keeping the kids occupied on long journeys.
The Tab 3 comes with 2GB RAM memory and 16GB of internal storage. This can be increased to 128GB if you buy an additional micro SD card.
The Tab 3 supports 4G-LTE and Wi-Fi for continuous connectivity.
The Final Word
It may not be the most powerful tablet around, but the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 10 offers a great amount of versatility that makes it a great all-rounder for everyday use at home or travelling.
With thoughtful and practical features and an outstanding battery life, the Yoga Tab 3 offers excellent value for money and is an ideal multi-media device for the whole family.
Great battery life
A little heavy for some
10.6″ Fusion5 Android Tablet – Good Display and Battery Life
If you’re looking for a budget priced tablet for watching your favourite movies, then the large 10.6 inch Fusion5 is definitely worth considering.
The LCD Full HD screen has a 1920 x 1080 resolution which delivers a clear, bright and vibrant image which is a pleasure to watch thanks to the generous 10.6 inch viewing area.
This is a large tablet so won’t suit those who want a more discreet and compact model. It’s also reasonably heavy, weighing 1100 grammes, so it’s not the most portable device.
Although the Fusion5 comes with a screen protector already fitted, it still seems to scratch easily. The screen itself is quite fragile and delicate so a protective case is recommended. That, as well as the size is something you should consider if you want to travel a lot with your tablet.
Set up is very easy even if you’re not a ‘techy’ type. Thanks to the octa core processor and 2 GB RAM, the Fusion5 is satisfyingly fast, the touch screen is sensitive and responsive and screen lag is minimal. It’s ideal for performing everyday tasks and there’s no significant slow down when multiple apps are running at the same time.
The generous 2 GB RAM storage can also be extended via the micro SD card slot. There’s also minimal bloatware taking up storage space.
Considering this is a budget tablet, image quality is very impressive. That and the large 10.6 inch viewing area make it a great device for watching movies, YouTube videos and playing games. It’s also proving to be a popular buy for those with poorer eyesight who appreciate the larger screen size and high resolution.
The screen itself however is quite fragile and scratches easily so the tablet isn’t ideal if you want to take it out and about a lot. It’s better suited as a stay-at-home tablet for watching movies rather than a portable device you can throw into a bag.
Sound quality from the 2 internal speakers lets it down a bit and can sound tinny when turned up high.
Battery life is higher than average and fully charged can last up to 14 hours.
A very welcome surprise for a tablet in this price range is its versatile choice of connectivity. As well as the micro USB it also has a full-sized USB port and a mini HDMI for extra convenience.
The Fusion5 has 2 cameras, a 2MP front camera and 5MP back camera which work pretty well for a tablet. Certainly not smart phone quality, but slightly better than average.
The Fusion5 has an excellent octa core processor that is speedy and powerful, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. It also has energy saving DVFS which also helps with loading speeds.
A generous 2 GB RAM memory that can be extended via the micro SD slot.
Large 10.6 inch screen with high 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution delivering impressively sharp and vibrant image quality.
Versatile connectivity via a micro USB, full-sized USB and mini HDMI. The device also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 capabilities.
2 cameras, front and rear with auto focus function.
The Final Word
Considering the price, this lower end tablet has some great features and works extremely well. But its main appeal is the large screen that delivers excellent image quality. It’s an ideal buy for families who want a tablet primarily for watching movies but don’t want to spend a fortune on a more expensive model.
The Fusion5 can never be compared to an iPad Pro, but if you’re looking for a second tablet that performs all the essential tasks while providing a pleasurable viewing experience at an affordable price, then the Fusion5 should suit you nicely.
Good battery life
Sound is a bit tinny
Screen scratches easily
Anoc 10.1″ Inch Android Tablet – Decent Cheap Tablet
The Anoc Android tablet is lightweight but sturdy tablet with a large 10.1 inch screen, ideal for watching movies, playing games and large print reading.
The ultra-clear IPS screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution with a wide angle feature. Picture quality is good, however it also has a mini HDMI port so you can connect it to another monitor or even the TV for watching movies on a large screen.
The Anoc 10.1 is fairly lightweight, weighing just under 800 g. It also has a micro SD card slot so you can download your favourite movies and watch them on the go. Slim and light, it’s an ideal tablet for long journeys.
Set up is straightforward enough and it comes fully charged so it’s ready to use straight out of the box.
The latest Android Nougat 7.0 runs smoothly enough and the tablet is easy to navigate. However, even though it has Quad Core Super Fast CPU, it’s not as responsive as it could be.
Apps are easy to download, and the tablet supports all the essential apps such as Netflix, YouTube and email, but again, they’re slow to load. 2 GB RAM would have been better than the 1GB it comes with.
It also works well with the Kindle app, and the large, well defined screen makes it easy to read your favourite books in comfort.
A definite plus point is the picture quality. The Ultra Clean 1280 x 800 IPS screen is clear, sharp and vibrant. The larger size and the wide viewing angle make it a great little tablet for watching movies or your favourite Netflix shows.
Alternatively you can connect the Anoc to the television via the handy mini HDMI port. And if you want to download films to watch offline, there’s a micro SD card slot to expand storage from 8 GB to 128 GB.
Battery life is impressive. Fully charged, it will last you most of the day, so you can then leave it to recharge overnight.
The Anoc has two cameras, front and back, but like with many other tablets, image quality is not one of the manufacturer’s top priorities. It’s adequate enough for Skype calls and children’s fun photo apps, but don’t expect smartphone quality.
If you’re looking for an affordable tablet specifically for multi-media entertainment the Anoc has all the features to make viewing your favourite movies and shows easy and pleasurable.
The Ultra Clean 10.1 inch screen has an impressive 1280 x 800 resolution as well as a wide view angle which delivers a sharp image quality and vibrant colours.
Thanks to the mini HDMI port you can even connect the tablet up to your TV and watch movies on a larger screen, and that with the long battery life, makes it ideal for those late night Netflix binges.
With the micro SD card slot you can expand your storage up to 128 GB, so you can download movies, music and games and view them offline; great for long journeys.
As well as supporting all the popular apps such as Netflix, YouTube, SkyGo and Kindle, the Anoc also supports 3D gaming.
The Final Word
The 10.1 inch Android Anoc is not going to satisfy those who want a far more responsive and fast loading tablet. However, if you want an affordable device for movie watching, reading and playing simple games, or just want a second tablet for the home which isn’t going to cost a fortune, the Anoc should more than satisfy your needs.
A bit slow for some
Sound a bit tinny
10.1″ Fusion5 Android Tablet – good build quality
If you’re looking for a budget price tablet with a decent screen size for watching movies, surfing the web and playing games, then the versatile 10.1 inch Fusion5 offers great value for money.
The large 10.1 inch IPS screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution which offers a clear and bright display. If you’re used to higher resolutions, you may find reading a bit grainy, but considering this is a budget model, the display is fine for watching movies and performing everyday tasks.
Build quality is solid enough for children, while the sleek design won’t look out of place in the office.
Weighing just 580 grams, the Fusion5 feels lightweight and well balanced in the hand. The slightly textured back enables a better grip and it feels comfortable to hold.
The switches are all on one side; a practical touch that makes it easier to use and handle.
A surprising feature of the Fusion5 is that it’s nice and speedy and has a good response with almost no lag. Thanks to the Android Nougat operating system and MediaTek Quadcore processor performance is smooth and apps load well. There’s also no annoying bloatware to fill up the memory.
The screen resolution is fine for watching movies and playing games but it is slightly grainy with text, so it’s not an ideal Kindle substitute. And although it has an IPS screen which is bright and clear when looking straight on, viewing from an angle is poor and lacks definition.
Sound quality is not bad but the volume is quite low; fine for Skype calls, but you’ll need headphones if you want to enjoy a better audio experience when watching movies.
Battery life depends on what you use the tablet for. If it’s just to check emails and browse the internet, it can last a couple of days. Watching movies or playing games will drain the battery a lot quicker, but you can certainly get a few hours of constant use out of it before having to recharge.
Camera quality is what you’d expect from a tablet: fine for kids’ selfies but the quality can’t be compared to that of a smartphone camera.
The latest Fusion5 supports WiFi, Bluetooth and it also has integrated GPS allowing you to download maps when needed, a welcome feature considering the price.
Thanks to the Android 7.0 Nougat, performance is smooth and speedy and apps work well.
The Fusion5 comes with a USB and micro USB port as well as a HDMI port so you can connect the tablet to your TV and watch movies on the big screen.
There’s 16GB of internal storage, but this can easily be extended to 128GB with a separate micro SD card. That, combined with large 10.1 inch screen makes the Fusion5 ideal for watching downloaded movies when you’re away from home.
The Final Word
Quality wise, the Fusion5 is nowhere near the level of more expensive models with more powerful processors and higher screen resolutions. But considering the price, you can’t expect it to compete with an iPad.
What you do get though is a perfectly decent budget priced tablet that works well and is packed with features that add to its versatility.
A great entry-level buy or as a first tablet for kids, while functioning well enough for everyday tasks at home and in the office. At this price, you can’t really go wrong.
Screen a bit dim for some
Dragon Touch V10 Android Tablet – great display and camera
If you’re looking for a decent tablet that looks good and performs well at an affordable price, you’ll be pleased with the Dragon Touch V10.
Slim and stylish, the V10 also has an impressively large 10 inch IPS screen that delivers a sharp, crisp, clear image for a pleasant movie watching experience.
The V10 is slim and feels pleasantly light to hold. The main buttons are all on one side, so it’s easy to use, while the medium sized framing allows you to hold the tablet easily without touching the actual screen.
A comfortable tablet to prop up in bed, on your lap or pop into your bag when you’re on the move.
Set up is incredibly easy with a simple to use interface. There’s very little bloatware, so will appeal to those who just want a basic tablet that’s not filled with apps they’ll never use.
The 1280 x 800 resolution IPS screen is surprisingly bright and clear for a tablet in this lower price range. You’ll have no problem watching your favourite Netflix shows and movies. There’s also a handy mini HDMI port so you can connect the tablet to the TV and watch on the bigger screen if you prefer.
Although it’s not full HD, the screen does have an IPS feature, so viewing angles are pretty good with no significant loss of definition.
The V10 has a decent MTK 1.3GHz Quad Core processor and runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. Thanks to this combination, there’s no noticeable lag and performance is speedy and powerful enough to satisfy the average user who needs to perform the usual tablet tasks such as movie watching, internet browsing and social media.
The V10 is fine for simple to medium level games, but 1GB RAM isn’t enough for more challenging games.
Sound quality is adequate and fine for watching a movie in a quiet room. It can sound a bit tinny though when turned up to full volume. However, the V10 supports Bluetooth so you can set it up with compatible external speakers for a better listening experience.
On a negative point, it takes a while to charge; up to 6 hours for a full charge. And the battery itself lasts for an average of 4-5 hours which isn’t as good as some of its competitors.
The dual cameras, although not smartphone standard, are surprisingly good for a tablet, especially in this price range.
The V10 has all the usual features you’d expect with some extras thrown in, making it a great all-round tablet offering good value for money.
The latest Android Nougat 7.0 and the Quad Core processor offer a smooth and speedy performance and are more than adequate for those essential everyday tablet tasks.
The IPS screen offers a pleasant viewing experience while the mini HDMI port gives you the added choice of watching movies on the bigger TV screen.
The V10 has 16 GB of internal storage which can be extended to 32 GB via the micro SD slot.
GPS functions well with downloaded maps for when you’re on the move.
A surprising and welcome feature in a tablet in this price range is FM radio which you can listen to even without WiFi.
The Final Word
The Dragon Touch V10 is one of the best selling tablets in the budget price range and it’s easy to see why. For those who want a decent performing all-rounder that’s easy to use without the hefty price tag, you can’t get much better value for your money than this.
Padgene 10.1″ M8 tablet – best 10 inch phablet
The Padgene 10.1” M8 android is an ultra-slim black tablet encased in a stylish metal shell. The large screen is ideal for watching movies at home, reading or browsing the internet with ease, delivering a bright, clear and colourful image. Known as a ‘phablet’ the M8 also doubles as a phone with 2 regular SIM card slots included.
The metal shell gives the M8 a smooth and textured feel thats easy to hold while the large 10.1” screen is a decent size, providing a pleasant reading or movie watching experience.
The M8 is easy to set up and go, while downloading apps and keeping them regularly updated is no problem at all.
The M8 comes with 1 GB RAM of memory and a generous 16 GB hard disk which supports a TF card and can be extended up to 64 GB.
It’s a reasonably responsive tablet with no noticeable lag when you’ve got multiple apps open at the same time. However big game players may find it a bit slow for demanding games. It’s more suitable as a tablet for small games that younger kids may play.
Everyday tasks such as emails, browsing, reading and watching movies can be performed with ease, making it a great all-rounder for the whole family to use.
The dual camera is adequate for kids who want to play and take selfies, but camera quality isn’t a big priority, even with the higher priced tablets, so you can’t really expect much more.
As a budget priced tablet, the M8 is ideal as a general family device or kids’ first tablet, offering a decent sized screen for movie watching and game playing.
The price is reflected in the sound quality though; average at the most. It certainly won’t be enough to satisfy those wanting deep bass and trebles for truly immersive game playing or movie watching. However, if you’re looking for a budget tablet for younger kids, the sound’s perfectly adequate for their TV shows and simple games.
On the plus side, the M8 does have a pretty decent battery life of 7 hours, which can be extended if you put the tablet in ‘ultra power saving’ mode.
The M8 ‘phablet’ has 2 regular SIM card slots, so you can use it as a phone as well as a tablet. It supports 3G network and is unlocked.
Thanks to the 4500mAh battery, you can use the M8 easily for 7 hours. And if the power’s running low, you can put it in ultra power saving mode to save on the battery power.
The M8 comes with Google Playstore pre-installed, and supports the more popular apps such as Netflix and YouTube.
With Google Android 7.0, the M8 offers a smooth and responsive browsing experience with no noticeable lag when multitasking.
The M8 also features built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, so you can easily connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices such as keyboards and speakers.
The M8 has dual cameras, enabling you to catch up with friends and family on video chats or for the kids to take selfies.
The Final Word
The Padgene M8 doesn’t claim to be in the same league as higher spec, more expensive tablets. It’s a low price, functional ‘phablet’ that does exactly what it says it does. Rather than a feature-filled high end tablet, the Padgene M8 is an ideal entry level tablet for casual users and families with young children.
Not mind-blowing, but not bad either; and for the price, a pretty satisfying, general-use tablet.
Doubles as phone
Huawei UK MediaPad T3 10 – Best Budget 10 inch Tablet
The Huawei UK MediaPad T3 10 is surprisingly stylish for a mid-range tablet. It has the sleek, modern metal design you’d expect on an Apple and an elegant and durable aviation grade anodised aluminium casing in light grey.
In terms of quality, the design of the T3 10 makes it look more expensive than it is, and certainly gives pricier models a run for their money.
The T3 10 features an IPS LCD HD display with 1280 x 800 pixels that guarantees bright, clear image quality and vibrant colours, making the tablet ideal for watching movies or playing games. Even the box it comes in is attractive!
Weighing only 460g, the T3 10 is lightweight and easy to carry around without weighing your bag down, while it’s compact enough to even fit inside a large pocket, like a smartphone.
At 8mm it is super slim and the rounded edges fit neatly into your hands making it a pleasure to use.
The T3 10 is equipped with a Quad core 1.4GHz processor and the EMU 5.1 operating system. The result is a clean and responsive interface and a tablet that is smooth and fast to use.
In fact, for everyday essential tasks, the tablet is super fast. Pages load quickly and scrolling is smooth and seamless.
Internet connection is a definite plus point. It’s very fast even in areas where the Wi-Fi signal is weak. There’s no lag and streaming movies is a synch.
Sound quality is better than average and doesn’t distort even if you pump up the volume. Skype calls are clear and noise interference is minimal.
The clear display comes in wide screen with full HD, and only the most pedantic Apple enthusiasts will notice slight pixelation around the outer edges.
Internal storage is 16GB which should satisfy casual users, but you can bump it up using a Micro SD card in the dedicated slot.
The camera, like with many other tablets, is adequate, but images can look a little washed out. It certainly won’t be up to the standard of your smartphone’s camera.
Battery life is excellent and you can play games or watch movies for up to 7 or 8 hours on average. The T3 10 also does a good job of staying cool, and won’t warm up like many other tablets.
Considering its price, the T3 10 is packed with some great features.
It has a split screen option that you’d only expect with a more expensive tablet. The feature lets you open 2 apps at the same time and look at them side-by-side, for example you can refer to a webpage while using the pre-loaded Microsoft Office.
The 2 GB RAM is fast and efficient allowing you to open 2 or 3 apps at the same time without having to wait for them to reload.
The battery is excellent, and you can go up to 7-8 hours until you need to recharge. On that note, charging is quick too.
The T3 10 can also be configured in Kid’s Mode so parents can control time on the tablet and access to sites you’d rather they didn’t see. The low light eye protection feature not only benefits children, but also means you can safely read or watch movies in bed without the worry of eye strain.
The Final Word
The Huawei T3 10 is a mid-range tablet, so you can’t expect the sophistication and efficiency that you’re going to get with the higher range models. However, if you want a fast working responsive tablet with features galore and the added benefits of extra storage, you should be more than happy with this elegant, hard working tablet.
Price vs features
Shorter battery life
It UK 10.1″ Quad Core, Google Android Lollipop Tablet PC – Best cheap 10 inch tablet
The It UK 10.1” Quad Core Google Android Lollipop is a cheap and cheerful tablet suited for those with a limited spending budget.
Looks wise, it’s not going to win any beauty prizes. It lacks the style and sophistication of the more expensive tablets, and it’s certainly not sleek or slimline. With a rounded black plastic casing, it has that chunky look that suits the purpose of an all-round family tablet and is sturdy enough for younger and more heavy handed kids to use.
The It UK has a large 10.1” screen which is a good size for watching movies or browsing on the internet. The 1024 x 600 resolution screen is fine for general use, but you’re not going to get that high res sharp quality you’d expect with higher priced models.
The It UK has a solid feel and feels quite chunky in the hand. It’s also pretty heavy, weighing in at around 900g, so although it’s equipped with a Micro SD slot for additional storage so you can use it on the move, it’s not that practical for travelling.
The main plus point of the It UK is that it’s very easy to use. It would suit a tablet newbie or families who don’t want the hassle of too much technology and a load of features they’ll never use.
The IT UK uses Android 5.1 Lollipop and 1GB RAM which is powerful enough for light use, watching YouTube or Netflix and browsing the internet. You’re never going to get the performance of an iPad or Samsung, but it switches smoothly enough between apps.
Connectivity is good and it connects to Wi-Fi with ease. It also has Bluetooth capabilities.
The 10.1” screen is a good size however the screen quality lets it down a bit. It only lets you adjust the brightness and you can only enjoy the full benefit of the 1024 x 600 resolution if you use it indoors. You also really need to position the screen directly centred in front of you. It’s very reflective and not good when viewing from an angle.
If you’re comparing the It UK to a more expensive brand, you’ll notice the images are more pixellated and the overall effect is slightly grainy. But you’re never going to get exceptional image quality in this price range. However, it’s adequate enough for watching movies on a tablet.
Another option is to use the handy HDMI port which allows you to connect the tablet with your TV.
The cameras are average and lighting isn’t great, but tablets aren’t built with the camera as a priority, and even expensive models have their issues. However the It UK cameras are fine for snap happy kids who like to take selfies.
Battery life is around 6 hours which is not much for a tablet; another reason why the It UK is a more suitable for home use.
The It UK uses Quad Core Android 5.1 Lollipop with 1GB RAM and comes with 16GB of internal storage. The device also has a Micro SD card slot so you can increase the storage and create a customised library of your favourite movies and games.
The HDMI port allows you to connect the tablet to your TV and watch downloaded movies in a bit more comfort.
The It UK comes with the usual pre-installed Google apps such as Google Play, Chrome and Gmail.
The Final Word
You can’t expect all the features and capabilities of an iPad or Samsung at this price. However, if you just want a basic tablet that’s easy to use or you want an extra tablet to keep at home for watching movies, playing games or doing homework, the It UK is good value for money and certainly worth considering.
