Teclast with their popular and best seller X98 Air II, an iPad Air look alike with Dual boot capabilities, comes another great budget tablet that offers more bang for your buck. The Teclast X10HD is the sequel and is pretty much a hybrid device, with its Dual OS functionality, the tablet offers the great multimedia experience of Android KitKat and the Workstation flexibility of Windows 8.1. All of which are available in your fingertips.
So, what makes the Teclast X10HD 3G standout. Well, first of all looking at the specs, it’s certainly a beast. At its core, it uses a faster version of 64 bit Intel Atom Z3736F which has higher clock speeds compared to the standard. And secondly, is the Ultra High Resolution Retina Display, pixel per pixel, Teclast advertised it to have a higher pixel count compared to iPad Air (the new one).
Furthermore, the tablet is also equipped with 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 64 GB eMMC storage available. Of course, the storage is deducted to the installed Android and Windows OS. Although TF-Card expandable storage support is available up to a maximum of 64 GB.
A magnesium alloy metal backing with fingerprint resistant matte finish… The build quality is not great but not bad either. It magnesium shell material coupled with hardened plastic offers good grip and fingerprint resistance. Also multiple ports are available at your disposal, such as Mini HDMI port (4K video output), Micro USB (OTG), magnetic docking port (Keyboard), SIM and TF-Card Slots.
Although not all good can be said, due to poor optimization (software), there are minor bugs and annoyances but Teclast has assured the OTA Teclast Online update option is available to fix these bugs. Also despite the quicker Atom processor underneath, it still is not a speed demon. If you want more power on a PC, then get a faster laptop. The screen is overall very good but that does not necessarily translate to great gaming as this slows down some 3D intensive games. Thus, the tablet is best for minor workload, high efficiency and low power computing. Not more of a gaming machine.
In addition, the tablet could have used more juice, a 10000mAh battery or more would have been sufficient, the 8000mAh battery while not entirely bad is not what is expected. On mixed usage, more or less 5 hours is the average and could be more on more frugal circumstances.
Overall, the Teclast X10HD 3G is a nice touch on providing higher grade hardware to a midrange or budget system. Although it does have some shortcomings, namely battery life and weaker performance. But the device wasn’t meant to be a gaming machine, more so a good all around media device that offers great flexibility. The Teclast X98 Air II offers most of the features found on the X10 and most importantly it handles it better.
