Fast Android 3.1 tablet has full-size USB and HDMI ports and Tegra 2, but also extra bulk

Tablets review

  • It’s not the Folio 100
  • Fast processor
  • Removable back cover
  • Full-size USB and HDMI
  • Good movie playback
  • Great battery life

Against

  • Weak screen
  • Bulky and heavy
  • Screen cracked
  • Average design

The Toshiba AT100 (sold as the Toshiba Thrive in the US) is the latest Tegra 2 Android tablet to come from one of the world’s big tech companies.

In the world of iOS and Android tablets, it’s often not a question of having all of the best features.

Sometimes, having a few unique and well-targeted offerings can help you carve out a niche.

That’s especially true of the Toshiba AT100. While it seems like yet another Android 3.1 tablet that might suffer the same fate as the ill-conceived HP TouchPad which has now been discontinued the AT100 does offer some appeal for more advanced, technically-minded users after customisation options and high benchmark scores.

Both the HP TouchPad and the Toshiba AT100 are a bit bulky and heavy. Yet, the AT100 differentiates itself from the Apple iPad 2.

It has full-size ports for HDMI, USB and SD cards no adapters required, and no “micro” anything. The rear camera snaps photos at 5MP.

Tablets review

The rear cover snaps off there are optional back covers available in five colours so you can gain access to remove the battery.

Most importantly, enterprising individuals who snap the back cover off will find there are actual screws you can remove and. well, let’s just say the Toshiba AT100 is friendlier to potential customisation.

Tablets review

Weighing 725g, the Toshiba AT100 is a bulky monster. That’s 160g heavier than the lightest of the light Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Some users might appreciate the heft though, and the back cover has a snake-skin pattern that’s easy to grip.

You can imagine pulling out the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, at 8.6mm thick, and seeing everyone squint to see it in profile. The Toshiba AT100 is big and bold at 15.7mm a hair thinner than the Apple MacBook Air.

Tablets review

The Toshiba AT100’s 10.1-inch screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio at 1280 x 800 pixels resolution. Toshiba touts its Resolution+ technology, designed to make videos snap. Yet, the screen is not nearly as bright or colourful as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and looks a bit washed out compared to the iPad 2.

The Toshiba AT100 8GB version costs $400 in the US, which is the same as the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. We tested the 16GB version of the tablet, which costs $430. Toshiba hasn’t yet announced a UK launch price, though the UK release date is 1 September 2011.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8 & A10 review: New budget Android tablets

Lenovo used MWC 2015 in Barcelona this week to launch two new and affordable Android tablets: the Lenovo Tab 2 A8 and the Lenovo Tab 2 A10. We tried them out at the Lenovo stand during the show to bring you our Lenovo Tab 2 A10 and A8 hands-on review. Also see: Best new tablets coming in 2016.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8 A10 hands-on review: Design build

If you haven’t guessed already, one of the main differences between the two new Lenovo Android tablets is the screen size. The A8 is 8in while the A10 is 10in, so is obviously bigger and heavier.

Both tablets are satisfyingly thin, though, measuring 8.9mm. At 509g (A10) and 360g (A8) Lenovo can’t match the lightness of rivals including the stunningly light iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, but with a significantly lower price tag we certainly aren’t complaining.

The larger of the two tablets comes in Pearl White or Midnight Blue colour options, while the smaller model gets additional Ebony and Neon Pink editions, each with plastic backs. They’re by no means unattractive tablets, although we’re not keen on the large bezels around the display.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8 A10 hands-on review: Hardware specs

Looking closer at the display on the A10 you’ll find a 10.1in Full HD IPS screen, while the A8 has a 720p HD IPS display that measures 8in. Both displays appeared to be reasonable during our testing, although poor viewing angles and reflectiveness is a bit disappointing.

Inside the Lenovo Tab 2 tablets is a MediaTek 64-bit quad-core processor (1.3GHz for A8 and 1.5GHz for A10) paired with 1GB RAM, 8/16GB storage built-in and the ability to add up to 32GB additional space thanks to the microSD card slot. There’s also an optional SIM-card slot on each tablet that will allow you to make and take calls and use 4G LTE while out and about, making these tablets large entries into the phablet category.

Both tablets have cameras on the front and back, with the A10 boasting an 8Mp rear camera, and the A8 sporting a 5Mp rear snapper. On the front of the A8 is a 2Mp camera for selfies or video chats.

There’s a 7,000mAh battery inside the A10, which Lenovo suggests will provide up to 10 hours of power, while the A8’s 4,290mAh battery should last for up to eight hours according to the company.

Additionally, both tablets have Dolby Atmos technology ideal for audio-lovers, which can be heard through the multi-speaker sound bar on the rear of the A10 or through headphones while using the A8, which lacks the soundbar but does have dual front-facing speakers (of course you can also listen through headphones on the A10, too). We were unable to fully test the audio on the noisy show floor but will bring you our verdict on that feature when we get the tablets back to our labs.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8 A10 hands-on review: Software

Right now, the A10 is running stock Android 4.4 KitKat with a Lollipop update expected to come soon, to match the stock Android 5.0 Lollipop running on its smaller counterpart, the A8.

Lenovo Tab 2 A8 A10 hands-on review: Price availability

Lenovo has priced its new tablets competitively, with the A10 starting at 179.99 and the A8 starting at just 129.99. Lenovo expects the A10 to arrive in the UK first from April, while the A8 will come later in June.

SHOULD I BUY LENOVO TAB 2 A8 A10?

Lenovo’s new Android tablets are decent new entries into the budget tablet market, despite the lack of any particularly interesting or outstanding features. They’ll do the trick for anyone looking for an all-rounder in either the 8in or 10in tablet category, but don’t expect to be blown away by their screen, camera offerings or design. We’ll bring you full benchmark tests, camera tests and battery life tests as soon as we can to help us compare these tablets more closely with rival tablets.

Review: Electrolyte Tablets

Tablets reviewTablets reviewTablets reviewTablets reviewTablets reviewTablets reviewTablets review

Posted Wednesday 25th April 2012

It seems electrolyte tablets are one of the the latest big things in the sports nutrition market. Whilst Nuun have been around for sometime over the last couple of years we ve seen High 5 launch their Zero Electrolyte tablets, Maxifuel launch Electrotabs and with the recent news that GU are soon to be distributing their GU Brew electrolyte tablets in the UK there s now plenty of options to chose from. We tested three of the brands currently available in the UK, Nuun, High 5 and Maxifuel to see how they compare.

Tablets reviewOur test range, High 5, Maxifuel and Nuun

All the products tested are low in calories so are not designed to provide energy but instead are designed to help give you the electrolytes (essentially the salts you lose when you sweat) to help with proper hydration. As they are low in calorie it means you ll need to use these products with energy bars, gels or some other food intake to maintain your energy levels for longer rides and if you re swapping from a carbohydrate energy drink to any of these products then it s worth bearing in mind that you may need to make up the lost calories from some other source.

Before we look at each of the products lets look at why you might want to consider using a low calorie electrolyte drink rather than a regular sports energy drink

  • For short rides you don t necessarily need the calories in a sports drink especially if you re trying to lose some weight so swapping to a low calorie drink and ditching the calories in a sports drink could help with weight loss.
  • On hot days you can use these products to supplement you regular energy drink intake to help prevent dehydration. One neat thing about the tablet form is you can easily keep a few in your jersey pocket (wrapped in cling film or foil seems to work rather than carrying a full tube) and add them to your water bottle when you top up.
  • Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance can be a factor in the cause of cramp so cyclists may find that these products help in preventing cramps. Several of the riders we spoke to about these products claim they have helped with reducing their cramps so there seems to be some evidence to back this up.
  • Another claimed benefit is that electrolye solutions that don t contain carbohydrates are absorbed more rapidly by the body. This is obviously difficult to prove in practice but from a taste perspective the electrolyte tablets we ve tested do seem more refreshing than a very sweet energy drink.
  • Finally, and speaking from experience, they work pretty well as a hangover cure too

On the surface the three products we tested are all very similar, they re all in dissolvable tablet form, they all are low in calories and all claim to provide the electrolytes you need to aid hydration so lets look at each in a bit more detail.

Nuun Electrolyte Tablets

Nuun were arguably the original electrolyte tablet and have recently gone through a bit of a re-branding along with the introduction of some new flavours over the last few months. Each nuun tablet provides 360mg sodium, 100mg potassium, 25mg of magnesium and 13mg of calcium and makes around 500ml when mixed as directed.

Tablets reviewNuun electrolyte tablets in fruit punch

Out of all the products tested Nuun have the largest range of flavours on offer (lemon lime, citrus, orange, banana, cola, grape, pink lemonade, tri-berry, fruit punch), all the ones we tested are quite mild in terms of flavour which isn t necessarily a bad thing but something to consider if you like something with a strong flavour. It s worth experimenting with a few different flavours as I really didn t think I d like the cola flavour but it s actually turned out to be one of my favourites.

Other than taste the only difference between the flavours is the cola flavour has 20mg of caffeine per serving in it. That s less than a regular cup of coffee so probably not enough to make a significant difference but maybe a consideration if you re going to be using it with something like a caffeine gel or if you re one of those people who try and avoid caffeine all together.

In practice the tablets dissolve quickly in around a minute or two although we found it s worth leaving the lid off your bottle whilst they dissolve to avoid a build up of pressure. Once dissolved you get a lightly coloured and mild tasting electrolyte drink kind of like flavoured water is the best way to describe it.

Nuun has the smallest pack size with 12 tablets per pack (so about 6 litres of drink) and at the recommended retail price of £6.20 they work out as the most expensive option coming in at 52p per tablet.

High 5 Zero

High 5 Zero tablets are descibed on the pack as an electrolyte and magnesium sports drink and whilst it lacks the full range of electrolytes it contains almost double the amount of magnesium of the other products. The High 5 reasoning behind this is the inclusion of additional magnesium should help to avoid cramp. It s one of those claims that s difficult to prove as we didn t experience cramps whilst using any of the products but if you do suffer from regular cramps this may be the product to try.

Tablets reviewHigh 5 Zero electrolyte tablets in berry

As with the other products it s a case of dropping the tablets in water and waiting for it to dissolve. High 5 recommend one tablet per 750ml for a weak flavoured drink or two tablets per 750ml for a strong flavoured drink. In use we found the one tablet per 750ml was too weak having very little flavour, two tablets per 750ml gives quite a strong flavour so we tended to opt for a middle ground of one per 500ml bottle or one and a half per 750 ml. The tablets, like the nuun tablets, are marked down the middle making it easy to break them in two and use half measures.

There s a choice of 4 flavours, cherry orange, berry, citrus and the recently launched pink grapefruit with berry and pink grapefruit being our favourites, citrus is fine but the cherry orange seems to split opinion. Once dissolved the drink does have an every so slight effervescant taste compared to the completly flat taste from Nuun and Maxifuel products.

As well as the regular High 5 Zero product there is also Zero Xtreme tablets available in berry or pink grapefruit flavours that are essentially the same product but with the addition of caffeine.

High 5 Zero has the largest pack size with 20 tablets per pack which at the recommended retail price of £6.99 works out as at 35p per tablet.

Maxifuel Electrotabs

The Electrotabs are the only product out of our test to contain Chloride, an essential mineral that is depleted during heavy sweating so it s inclusion does seem to make sense in maintaining electrolyte balance. In practice we found it hard to notice any difference in performance due to this but maybe in really hot weather it may make a difference.

Tablets reviewMaxifuel Electrotabs in lemon

Unlike the Nuun and High 5 Zero tablets these aren t marked down the middle so are difficult to break in two, it s not a major issue but with one tablet making 500ml and many larger bike bottles being 750ml it would have been a nice touch to make it easy to break them in two.

Flavours are limited with only zesty lemon on offer at the time of review. It s quite a bitter lemon flavour which may not be to everyones taste so it would be nice to have some other flavours to chose from.

In terms of pack size the Maxifuel Electrotabs take the middle ground with 15 tablets per pack and at the recommended retail price of £6.99 per pack works out at just under 47p per tablet.

Best Budget Tablets Under $300 – Pro Guide, best tablets to buy.#Best #tablets #to

Finding the Best Budget Tablets Under $300

Best tablets to buy

Welcome to our guide to the best tablets under $300 based on professional reviews, sales, build quality, consumer feedback and real world performance.

Bordering on the premium end of the tablet market, the tablets on this list still aren’t the best of the best. Many premium range tablets will cost you as much as $400 upwards however, hitting mid-level pricing, these devices do not cut corners as much as their budget brethren. Everyday hardware/software performance as well as design of these tablets is comparable to what many of the best-in-class tablets have to offer. Also featured on the list are older flagship tablet models, which, despite running a slightly dated operating system and hardware, are still solid choices considering their prices have come down significantly since their release. Included in the list are also some Apple tablets. They have average specifications relatively to their Android competition but offer more premium designs and access to the Apple App store for many premium tablet apps.

Tablets Under $300 Top Picks

Due to ever increasing competition in the mid-range segment, expect these tablets prices to fluctuate on a regular basis. Check regularly so that you don’t miss out on the latest discount offers on every product in this list.

ASUS ZenPad 3S Z500M

Best tablets to buyFor the price, the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 9.7-inch tablet has some impressive hardware driving it. Boasting a hexa-core MediaTek MT8176 chipset that clocks speeds of up to 2.1GHz, it features snappy performance. The 4GB of RAM is fairly prevalent in higher end tablets, making multitasking a breeze. The 2048 1536 IPS LCD display is sharp and CNET.com have described the colors as more lifelike in comparison to the deep blacks and rich colors of the Samsung displays that creates an almost overly dramatic image. The design is very similar to that of the iPad Pro 9.7 in terms of shape and its adoption of the 4:3 aspect ratio, but based on Amazon reviewers, unlike the iPad Pro 9.7 the quality control is not the best, with many receiving faulty devices upon arrival. It’s diamond-cut edges and metal casing give the Zenpad 3S 10 an elegant look and the fingerprint scanner, which doubles up as the home button, is super responsive. It has capacitive buttons on each side of the home screen/fingerprint scanner – one for back and the other for multitasking. The speakers are on the edge of the screen, with some potential to block them when holding the screen, which could be a bit annoying. But they are otherwise loud and impressive, and ASUS have made use of an NXP Smart AMP to drive the speakers. It makes use of USB-C and its quick charging allows for the 5900mAh battery to charge full in around 2.5 hours. The battery life is around 10 hours according to ASUS, which is more than enough for most users. The camera quality is rather poor, with the 8MP camera and 5MP front camera underperforming. The rear camera also doesn’t come with an LED flash, meaning you cannot take shots in low light at all. It is able to shoot videos in 1080p, but this is reportedly also rather poor. The PowerVR GX6250 allows it to run high-end games with general ease, so it well suited to those who enjoy playing demanding games. It makes use of Android 6.0 and unfortunately comes with quite a bit of bloatware that cannot be removed. The 64GB built in storage is more than enough for the price and it can be expanded to 128GB with its included microSD slot.
