According to a lot of experts out there, the tablet is a dying breed and it’s been dying for quite a while now they say. With fewer tablet devices being launched each year, good tablets have become really hard to find, but Teclast is looking to change all that.
The Teclast T10 device is a 10.1-inch tablet that has midrange specs, 4GB of RAM, an MTK8176 hexacore and a 2560×1600 high-resolution IPS LCD. There aren’t a lot of tabs manufactured anymore, let alone one that’s 10.1-inches big. This particular product is among the few ten-inch and over tablets that have recently been released.
This device has an incredibly high-resolution 2560×1600, 10.1-inch LCD screen and is actually quite an outstanding LCD manufactured by Sharp. This display screen is very conducive to reading Reddit, reading comics and watching TV. The display offers a lot of saturated colors that help make most of the stuff displayed on the screen look good. It has good maximum brightness, measuring in at four-hundred nits, which makes it easy to see even in the sunlight, however, not direct sunlight.
The screen also has very good lighting power, but it’ll suffer, as usual, when sunlight comes into play. The laminated screen on the device helps provide for quality images, which happen to be way better than what you’d generally find on the classic IPS display screens. It has a pretty solid construction with no light leakages from anywhere.
This tab doesn’t really stand out when it comes to hardware and its silver metal outer-casing is rather generic in nature and generally looks like all the other tablets on the market. With that said, its metal body kind of feels good in the hand, however, unfortunately, fingerprints can be spotted on the tablet from time to time. When you flip the tab, you’ll find fairly tiny bezels, and not bezelless. Why? Because this would render it unholdable. It also has a number of ports available to the user and these include a micro HDMI port, a microSD card slot and a microUSB port.
This tablet device operates using stock Android 7.0 Nougat, however, unfortunately, its performance isn’t as silky smooth as you’d expect. Scrolling through home screens is relatively smooth, certainly smooth enough for regular use, but it is nowhere near as smooth as what you’d find on high-end smartphone handsets or even the Pad3 from MI. Also, there’s a bit of a stutter when it comes to the opening of applications, however, its 4GB of RAM helps make it a fantastic multi-tasker.
The tablet can support most video games, but some of the more demanding options might not run so well on the device. Need For Speed (No Limits) is one game that you might struggle with on this tab. Anyway, besides a select few, most of the popular games should work just fine.
Battery And Audio
An 8100mAh battery combined with a MTK8176 processor offers users very good battery life. On one charge, you’ll be able to get around 6-7 hours of screen-on time of mixed use, such as browsing Reddit, reading comics, YouTube and Chrome. If you conduct a video playback test, say playing back a 720p piece of video content at a brightness of 200nits, then this will probably last about nine hours before the tab dies.
When it comes to the audio, the tablet has stereo speakers found on each side which gives it the ability to produce a certain extent of stereo sound. It has a considerably loud audio volume output, which is loud enough for almost any scenario. The audio quality is slightly above average. There’s a considerable amount of bass and distortions can only be heard at maximum volume, but it disappears when you reduce the volume.
The Teclast T10’s system runs smoothly because of its Mediatek MT8176 SoC Octa Core processor. It has above-average stability and doesn’t have forced closed applications. Its multi-tasking system allows it to correctly manage apps, allowing the user to scroll through them quickly without having to jump apps. It’s generally a good tab device that doesn’t present a lot of inconveniences all thanks to the specs it has. Furthermore, its 2K resolution not only provides solid images but it also allows users to read texts clearly.
Within its multi-tasking function, you can activate an option that allows you to divide your screen into two so that you can use 2 applications simultaneously. This system moves these apps without any issues, especially if they’ve been specifically designed for this purpose.
Camera And Connectivity
It actually has a fairly decent camera, especially considering it’s a tablet. Its 8MP front camera can take fairly good photographs with some color saturation and fair detail. Its 13MP rear camera also has the ability to take some really good pictures as well. It’s certainly good enough for both selfies and video calls, even though not many folks use their tabs to take selfies with.
It also has blazing fast WiFi performance and can hit incredible speeds. But, its WiFi range is a little bit on the poor side. It’ll start cutting in and out of the internet once you get a measly fifteen feet away from the WiFi source.

Teclast have definitively still got it when it comes to producing above-average tablet devices. They’re still managing to give the world some fantastic products, and even though the tab itself is kind of on its deathbed, we hope they do not stop manufacturing them any time soon. The Teclast T10 Master is certainly a good 10.1-inch tablet device that can serve almost all your needs. It feels good in one’s hand and is generally the perfect size. Teclast is showing that the tablet can still go on strong for a little while longer. The era of the tablet is not completely dead just yet.
