Tablet, concurrently working telephone, long been no surprises. Another device Budget Wexler received from not only the phone function, but also the opportunity to work with two SIM-cards, both with support for 3G. While Wexler Tab 8q – not the typical smartped, and a full eight-inch tablet. The rest of his familiar characteristics: resolution of 1024×768 pixels, quad MediaTek MT8382 1,3 GHz and 5 megapixel camera. Let’s see what it looks like in practice.
Package and Accessories – Wexler Tab 8q
The tablet is packed in a good box of hard plastic, traditionally Manufacturer white, minimalist and with the same “big-eyed” logo Wexler. Packaging, perhaps even elegant, it can be considered a gift.
Under the hood – packed in a soft foam pad, a short instruction and charger with USB cable in a separate box.
Appearance – Wexler Tab 8q
Appearance at Wexler Tab 8q simple enough. Glass front panel and the plastic back plate painted framed by the metal rim. Dimensions of the device are 202 x 138 x 9 mm, and its weight – 380 grams.
Located on the front facing camera is shifted slightly to the left, and above it is placed in the center of the earpiece. Around the screen – small black frame.
Taken out volume rocker on the right side, and on / off button – on the left.
At the lower end of the body fit microphone, micro-USB connector and socket miniHDMI. At the top there is a headphone jack.
Part of the rear panel – removable, which is a rarity for tablets. Below the top of the back cover hidden connectors for SIM-card and the memory card slot microSDHC.
The main camera is moved to the left corner of the panel, it is located under the flash. Logo Wexler, also supported on the cover, flipped vertically and read in landscape mode.
The rear panel has an interesting “pixel” texture. However, since plastic mat, it is evident only in the light.
Assembled plate well without backlash, compressive body is not pressed. It looks solidly and reliably, and in the hands felt the same way. Conspicuous plastic edging, but expect design budget unit does not have a real metal.
Ergonomics – Wexler Tab 8q
The tablet weighs 380 grams, which is quite noticeable for this diagonal. However, the relative weighty work with him comfortable: it is still possible to effortlessly keep on weight, plus in his hand he is fine and does not slip. Except that you can find fault with the buttons – I would like them to be harder.
Cover plate rather reluctantly leaves his place, and in no hurry to get back, not snapping into the grooves. SIM-card, too easy to insert, remove, they are a bit stuck in the sockets, so you have to refrain from frequent change “simok” or microSD.
Screen – Wexler Tab 8q
Tablet was glossy capacitive display with a diagonal of 7.85 inches, made by technology TFT IPS and coated with a protective glass. Screen resolution was 1024×768 pixels, and the number of pixels per inch – 163.
Screen color reproduction is good, except that the black color is not enough depth. Display brightness is not ideal: the midday sun to see the image difficult. But for indoor and outdoor lighting in cloudy weather with enough headroom. Viewing angles are not a record, but very decent. In addition, the screen is not easily soiled and almost no glare.
Sensor detects up to five simultaneous touches and in most cases does not slow in recognizing gestures. Display settings let you change the font size from small to huge.
As for the pixelation inevitable in such density – in small letters you can see the pixels, of course. But the picture is clear, color-rich, and in the amount of screen though not enough stars in the sky, but makes a good impression.
