Alldoube has launched 2 champion trading tablets successful nan 8-inch class this twelvemonth that runs nan Android 13 OS. It started pinch nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini pinch a Unisoc T606 processor successful May, but erstwhile that became an contiguous champion seller, Alldocube decided to motorboat a much powerful type of that tablet pinch a MediaTek Helio G99 processor and moreover higher specs, which is nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro successful this review. It launched successful nan US nan past week of September.
They are some 8.4-inch tablets pinch nan aforesaid creation and exterior, but they person different specs and different performances. The 2 tablets tin beryllium confused astatine first by looking astatine nan images, since they look nan aforesaid and are marketed pinch nan aforesaid inheritance and wallpaper which contains a beautiful reddish food (Super Red Halfmoon Betta).
Powered by nan octa-core 2.2 GHz MediaTek MT6789 “G99” processor pinch a Mali-G57 MC2 graphics processor, 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 256GB of accelerated UFS 2.2 storage, nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro abruptly became nan astir powerful tablet successful nan 8-inch Android tablet marketplace successful USA and internationally. It has besides group speech an further optional 8GB of retention for virtual RAM, wherever you tin usage 8GB of nan retention for much RAM should you request to, simply by going into Settings -> Memory Expansion, and past chose nan number of gigabytes you wish to group speech for that purpose, up to 8GB.
So you tin activity pinch a full of 16GB of RAM, which is very bully for a pouch sized tablet. And having much RAM makes it imaginable tally a larger workload astatine nan aforesaid clip aliases tally much apps simultaneously without closing them down. A microSD paper slot connected nan broadside besides supports representation cards up to 512GB successful size.
I ran it done Geekebench 6.2 which tests nan processor, and sewage benchmark scores of up to 713 successful single-core and 1882 successful multi-core. When testing nan graphics processor, I utilized 3DMark and sewage a people of 3303 successful Sling Shot for nan OpenGL ES 3.0.
All normal Android games tally good pinch a framework complaint of 30 fps and Full HD up to a solution of 1920 x 1200, and pinch truthful overmuch RAM, it’s imaginable to usage it for work, and you tin link this tablet to a larger show if you want to either wirelessly done an app aliases nan USB-C larboard straight (or done a USB-to-HDMI adapter), and brace a rodent and keyboard done Bluetooth for a afloat agency setup.
Editing videos besides went smoothly. Editing and redeeming a 10 2nd video clip pinch a 2560 x 1440 solution (the max video solution of nan rear camera), took conscionable 4.3 seconds successful nan celebrated video editing app InShot.
The Mini Pro supports Widevine L3 but not L1, which intends location are immoderate streaming movies from Netflix it won’t tally successful Full HD.
I don’t cognize astir nan wave of package updates, but during my first week of testing it, astatine slightest I received 1 firmware update from Alldocube.
The 8.4-inch surface is simply a afloat laminated in-cell surface pinch a Full HD solution of 1920 x 1200, pinch up to 320 nits brightness. It’s delivered pinch 2 surface protectors connected it. One for nan shipping and proscription that you will peel disconnected arsenic soon arsenic you get it, and different 1 for regular use.
Even pinch nan surface protector on, nan show is soft to touch and easy to swipe pinch my fingers. The colors are meticulous and natural, and nan sharpness and opposition is good. With nan latest Android 13 it’s besides very easy to group your ain colour somesthesia to lucifer your ain preferences, truthful if you for illustration a warmer aliases cooler colour reside connected nan screen, that’s easy to set successful nan settings.
I moreover tested nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro pinch Alldocube’s ain stylus pen, and was amazed by really bully nan surface was successful picking up moreover nan smallest pen strokes accurately without glitches. So that’s a bully bonus. You tin usage nan digitizer pen for either drawing, penning by manus pinch manus penning recognition, aliases moreover much analyzable video editing.
The surface besides handles fingerprints well, and is not peculiarly reflective either contempt being a glossy screen. Touch responsiveness is excellent, and it doesn’t prime up connected accidental touches erstwhile you clasp adjacent to nan surface from nan broadside bezels.
The sound value is acceptable for simpler games, sound alerts, listening to short conversations aliases videos, and truthful on, but nan audio is different bladed and lacks bass if you usage nan mono speaker to watch movies aliases perceive to euphony with. But Alldocube ships nan tablet pinch free earbuds that besides person mic connected them, since this is simply a 4G LTE tablet aft each that you tin besides make telephone calls with.
So if you usage nan earbuds, you get much bass. Or you could simply adhd a mini Bluetooth speaker pinch stereo to amended nan sound.
The 3.5mm audio combo jack is located astatine nan bottommost of nan tablet erstwhile utilized successful scenery mode pinch nan folio cover. This intends nan headphone jack points downwards. That’s not a problem without nan screen arsenic we tin simply rotate nan tablet 180 degrees. But utilized pinch Alldocube’s folio cover, nan earphone cablegram will instrumentality retired much than there’s room for, truthful I urge utilizing either wireless earbuds, headphones, aliases wireless speakers if you usage this peculiar cover, aliases get different screen aliases guidelines that’s lifted up a small higher and makes room for nan protruding cable.
The wireless net options are 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, aliases Bluetooth 5.2.
The dual-band a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi has accelerated speeds and wide cover. I was capable to spot nan router successful 1 extremity of nan location and get bully awesome spot and lag free 2K video streaming erstwhile I went to nan other extremity of nan house, while still going up and down a floor. So if you person an mean sized house, you should get bully sum each complete your location and connected conscionable extracurricular of your location too.
Navigation and location sensors
Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro has some GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and Beidou location sensors, and connected a clear time it was capable to fastener onto arsenic overmuch arsenic 39 satellites pinch an 11 sec clip to nan first fix. So that makes this a bully tablet for location and navigation apps, whether you’re connected holiday, walking, bicycling, aliases driving.
There’s besides FM power connected this tablet pinch automatic scanning for channels.
Other sensors includes an accelerator and a haptic centrifugal utilized for vibration alerts aliases feedback successful games that support that.
The beforehand camera is simply a 5MP camera pinch a photograph solution of 2560 x 1920, and video solution up to 1920 x 1080 for video chats aliases unrecorded streams. It has a bully attraction and exposure, and moreover performs okay successful little lit conditions.
The rear camera is simply a 13MP camera, pinch a lens that sticks retired a small connected nan back, and has a maximum photograph solution of 4096 x 3072 for a 4:3 ratio, aliases 4096 x 2304 for a 16:9 ratio. It tin moreover sprout video astatine up to 2K, pinch nan maximum video solution being 2560 x 1440 astatine 30 fps. The car attraction is speedy and functions well, but it has a inclination to overexpose immoderate photos it highly lit conditions.
The rear camera is awesome for scanning documents, since nan car attraction allows america to get up very close, arsenic adjacent arsenic 3 inches. Which tin beryllium utilized for macro photography too.
The G99 chipset is mostly businesslike pinch nan powerfulness usage, truthful from nan 5000 mAh artillery capacity, I’ve been capable to get a artillery life of astir 9 1/2 hours connected a complaint pinch nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro.
That’s pinch section video playback successful Full HD and mid-range brightness, successful accordance pinch nan modular artillery life measurement. So that’s besides good. And nan standby mode is bully too, which is communal pinch each nan celebrated MediaTek processors. So this is simply a tablet that tin beryllium near successful standby mode for galore days without losing overmuch power.
Battery depletion seems unchangeable and predictable, and erstwhile utilizing nan included powerfulness adapter, it charges from 1% to 100% successful nether 2.5 hours, done nan USB-C larboard which supports charging and information transportation astatine nan aforesaid clip if you want to link it to a USB hub pinch tons of accessories. The tablet really supports up to 18W PD accelerated charging.
Exterior and dimensions
Despite being an 8.4-inch tablet, nan beingness dimensions of this tablet are really smaller than nan accepted 8-inch tablets from conscionable a fewer years ago, since nan surface abstraction is utilized much effectively, pinch much constrictive bezels.
My girlfirend was baking pastry earlier coming while I was testing nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro, truthful erstwhile I put nan tablet connected nan room scale, it weighed successful astatine 310 grams. And it is so conscionable 7.5mm heavy too, though 10mm wherever nan rear camera is. But fundamentally it’s a very portable tablet.
The grey metallic metallic assemblage has a soft but finely texturized matte and grippy texture connected nan back, which makes it easy to clasp connected to for longer periods of time. The build value is solid, pinch nary cracking and nan tablet is very stiff erstwhile I tried flexing and twisting it.
There’s a USB-C larboard connected this tablet that tin do it all, but Alldocube has besides included a mini USB-C to full-size USB-A adapter successful nan box.
I tin spot why nan Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro has quickly go nan champion trading tablet successful nan 8-inch Android 13 tablet category. If we measurement up nan pros and cons, past nan cons are nan deficiency of Widevine L1, nan speaker, and nan guidance of nan headphone jack.
The pros are each nan remainder of nan specs and features of this tablet, which are many. It offers a batch of tablet for nan money and has awesome versatily immoderate personification wants to usage it for, which makes it nan champion tablet successful this class today.
