When Alcatel was releasing their new products last April, there was one I forgot to write about, Alcatel One Touch Tab 7 HD. I saw one yesterday and it is a nicely built tablet. The price, Php7,490 is about what you expect to pay these days for a 7-inch tablet with a 720p HD display.
- Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- 7-inch IPS HD display (800 x 1280)
- 4 GB internal storage expandable via a MicroSD card slot
- 1 GB RAM
- 1.6 GHz dual core RockChip 3066 processor
- Mali-400MP graphics chip
- 2 MP primary camera
- VGA front camera
- 3300 mAh battery
I noticed it did lack a few things. It has no ambient light sensor to adjust screen brightness and no GPS. The 3300 mAh battery is smaller than the 4000 mAh batteries you find on may 7-inch tablets. Build quality is good and the tablet is a nice slim 9 mm thick.
The RockChip 3066 chipset which uses a dual Core ARM Cortex-A9 processor which you find in many low cost tablets which performs well enough. It scores about 10000 points on Antutu benchmarks.
While it is not the bang for the buck 7-inch tablet in the market, it is a reasonable enough proposition.
