Budget 4G LTE Phablet, also with Dual Band WiFi and GPS support

The Voyo Q101 is an Ultra budget Android based Phablet that offers 4G LTE support and GPS built in. If you are considering a cheap Android Tablet, then this is probably for you. It also comes with a 1200p FHD Display, which is rare to see on a $100 Tablet. For this price, you should take note that the chipset is low end, meaning don’t expect blistering fast performance as well as great for gaming.

  1. Hi ,
    great info people like to think these Chinese tablet are no good ,but they are wonderful value for money without breaking the bank .

  2. Thank you, Vincent. Main issue with cube iPlay U83 is the low powered camera. Is the chipset for cube iPlay U83, MT8163 significantly better than Voyo Q101 chipset MT6753? Thank you. Cube iPlay U83 also much heavier.

    1. All of them have pretty much average cameras. The mediatek MT6753 (is a smartphone chipset), it is still on the low end category. The MT8163 (tablet based chipset) still the same.

      Best Regards,
      Vince

  3. All fake!
    Gearbest offers this Voyo Q101 4G as an ‘Android 6.0’ tablet with a ‘5000mAh’ battery.
    A closer look reveals the truth:
    – the Voyo Q101 4G runs on the outdated Android 5.1 (aka ‘Lollipop_MR1, API22)
    – the built-in battery is just 4000mAh
    This explains why the tablet will not install any Android 6 apps, only running for a few hours with one single charge.
    On top the charger is of lousy quality, mine died within 2 days.

    BUYER BEWARE! Stay away from Gearbest and their deceiving offers with false specifications. They continue to sell it as ‘Android 6.0 with 5000mAh’ battery, althrough I (and others) have delivered evidence about the true specs of this cheap thing.

    To answer questions above:
    – it DOES support 64GB cards, if formatted in FAT32 (not exFAT)
    – an image dump for the Voyo Q101 4G can be found on the Russian site 4PDA, no offical FW available AFAIK
    – the Russians are also trying to port an Android 7.0 image from Onda V10 4G to this Voyo
    – another clone “TecLast Tpad 98 4G” is apparently using the same firmware, but seems to lack the flashlight feature, so the function will get lost if flashing it to the “Voyo Q101 4G”
    – watch out, there are also “Voyo Q101” and “TecLast 98” models out there (no “4G”), running on different CPU, with less memory etc. A huge marketing mess…

    1. Hi and thank you for your very detailed review. We were about to buy this tablet,but after reading your review we are afraid of getting a not so good product.
      We are seniors and only use our tablets for email and web browsing. In your opinion,would this tablet do for us?

      thank you

      1. The tablet DOES work, and WILL be useful for most regular stuff like email, online shopping, movie watching, reading ebooks, listening to audio books etc. Most apps will run fine.

        Yet the outdated Android version makes it rather unsafe to use (security issues etc).
        Also the anemic battery will only support 4-5hr of runtime before needing a recharge.

        All Q101 4G have the same fake serial number ‘123456789ABCDEF’. All programs checking for unique installations like Navigon navigation software will refuse to run. Even S/N hackers like DonkeyGuard will crash, as the entire operating system is botched and corrupted by this Android 5/6 fakery.

        I can NOT recommend this thing, and nobody should buy such a heinous fake thing from Voyo (and Teclast, the same hardware with a different nametag). These companies are criminals, cheating the market with false specifications and faked products. Boycot is the only thing that will take them off the market. And spreading the news, like I am trying to do here.
