SuperPad 10.2″ Tablet review
A new Android tablet made by SuperPad
Another tablet we tested was the Superpad 10.2″ one. Users usually have mixed feelings about tablet OS devices, because of their many and various cons and pros. There are many people on Amazon.com who think of this product as having great value for its low price, while others consider it a bad imitation of much better tablets. We wanted to see for ourselves who is right, so we took this device for a spin. Read our review to find out if the Superpad 10.2″ Tablet delivers or not.
1024 X 600 pixels resolution
The product measures 10.5″ x 0.5″ x 6.5″ and weighs 1.4 kg. In the design department, the Superpad 10.2″ Tablet looks stylish and sleek, just like the ViewSonic G device. The 10.2″ TFT single-point touch screen offers a 1024 X 600 pixels resolution; it was very responsive when we tested the tablet, especially when we used the digital pen it came with. With the latter we were able to easily take notes, draw and much more. But, when we typed a letter, it gave us another letter altogether and navigation worked weird; also, viewing it from different angles resulted in bad clarity.
Powered by Android 2.1
The product also sports other specifications, such a 2 x USB 2.0 ports, HDMI connector for video output in HD, 2 MicroSD slots, 1 RJ45 port, 2 excellent high quality stereo speakers, built-in 1.3 MP camera and a TF card up to 32 GB of external memory. The tablet runs on Android 2.1.
The speakers offered very good audio quality and this tablet supports music formats such as MP3, WMA, WMA PRO AAC, AAC+, EAAC+ and RA. The integrated webcam has a decent build and is very good for video chatting, but it could have been better. Why: the resolution is not as good as the one on other tablet webcams; and is definitely not the same as the resolution provided by this product’s display. There is also a 1.3 megapixels camera that has the added bonus of supporting Wi-Fi; we tested it and we more than pleased with its performance provided in the time of this review.
2GB of flash memory included
The Superpad 10.2″ Tablet comes with 2GB of flash memory, integrated GPS chip and 2TF slots; one of the latter has a 16 GB card, meaning that we couldn’t keep many songs, videos or files without hurting the device’s overall performance.
A big plus for this tablet: its preloaded Android applications and from the different Android app stores we could download a lot of free games. Another thing we greatly enjoyed: we could ease two USB sticks simultaneously.
FlyTouch ARM11 1 GHz processor
The processor this Superpad 10.2″ Tablet uses is a FlyTouch ARM11 1 GHz one and there are 256 MB of DDR2, 3.5mm Headphone (or Line-Out), GPS antenna, RJ45 Ethernet, built in mono recorder and DC Jack. The device comes with 3800mAh Li-ion Battery.
To start using the tablet, all we had to do was read from the user manual that provided very helpful information in clear English.
And now for some other drawbacks of this product. The Superpad 10.2″ couldn’t be used with any wireless enabled technology that we tried on it and we had to calibrate the screen keys to make them work as they should. Maybe some of you won’t find this tiresome, but we sure did.
We hope this review was helpful to anyone who is on a look-out for a new tablet at an affordable price.
