Lenovo The Tab P10 TB-X705L has an attractive design and an emphasis on sound while ignoring performance numbers. The resolution of the IPS-screen is 1920×1200 with a diagonal of 10.1 inches. This is quite enough for a comfortable pastime watching movies or on social networks. The built-in speaker system with Dolby Atmos support pleases with sound, also due to the equipment of 4 stereo speakers. As a result, the delivery of mid frequencies is balanced with the high ranges – the sound is spacious, encompassing from all sides. This effect is achieved by the very placement of the speakers inside the cabinet.
The main camera with 8 megapixels allows for panoramic shooting, supports HDR, is equipped with autofocus and flash. It makes it easy to shoot video format Full HD. 5 megapixels of the front camera is enough for chatting on Skype and other similar applications.

Battery capacity: 15000 mAh
This is an option that most fans of reliable and sturdy tablets will appreciate. That there is only a battery with a capacity of 15000 mAh! Fans of outdoor activities will definitely be satisfied. Being in a protected case, the device is able to connect to the Internet even at a decent distance from mobile towers.
Inside the tablet is a processor MediaTek MT8382 with 4 cores (Cortex-A7) using the 28 nm process technology, which operates at a frequency of 1300 MHz. This is an outdated stone that is not capable of delivering sufficient performance even with an increase in other characteristics. However, no one tried to do this: exactly as much RAM was added as needed for elementary work without freezes, namely 2 GB. Despite this, the device is very popular among tourists, fishermen, hunters, climbers and even fans of extreme sports.
But with the cameras on the Torex PAD2, everything is in perfect order: the rear camera has a 13 megapixel matrix, with autofocus and flash, and the front one has 5 megapixels.

Comfortable tablet with a sleek aluminum cover, scratch-resistant and completely immune to dirt. It has an ergonomic arrangement of controls – the power button and volume keys are located on the right side of the side edge of the case. While many competitors with a screen size of 10 inches had a weight of 550-700 grams, the MediaPad M5 Lite with the same dimensions differs in a modest weight – about 475 g, and a thickness of no more than 7.7 millimeters. And this is by no means a flagship device, but a device quite affordable for buyers, although it cannot be called a budget one.
From the technical point of view, the device resembles the MediaPad T5 down to the smallest details, but the only difference is that the gadget has both the main and 8 megapixel front cameras. Special mentioning worthy of multimedia equipment in the form of a Harman / Kardon module, which provides high-quality sound. The interface is thought out to the smallest detail, from the call functions to the notification curtain. Those who previously had experience in operating gadgets from Huawei will be able to make friends with this device.
- built-in fingerprint scanner;
- works in 4G (LTE) networks;

According to most buyers, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is one of the best tablets in the lineup of the famous Korean manufacturer. It is based on the Exynos 7870 chip with 8 cores running at 1.6 GHz (subtype Cortex-A53). The Mali-T830MP2 video processor is responsible for graphics processing. All this is complemented by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal ROM under the OS Android 6.0.
The display gives a bright picture in artificial and natural lighting conditions, since it uses a TFT IPS-matrix with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. True, their density per inch cannot be called excellent: 224 ppi – several units more than that of previous opponents. But a light sensor is integrated under the body, which automatically (and correctly) selects the backlight level.
The main camera of 8 megapixels produces images of satisfactory quality. It is equipped not only with autofocus, but also with a flash for shooting at dusk. We do not recommend shooting with it at night: the photos are too grainy. But the front camera is weaker – only 2 megapixels.
- overclocked budget processor with increased performance;
- Samsung's distinctive tablet design;
- ergonomic and lightweight for its size;
- acceptable quality of rear camera photos.
- increased cost;
- too little RAM.
DIGMA CITI 3000 4G
Battery capacity: 10000 mAh
Hidden under the body of this tablet on OS Android 8.1 Oreo is a reliable chip MediaTek MT8735 with 4 Cortex-A53 cores, whose nominal clock frequency is 1.1 GHz. But in combination with 3 gigs of RAM, they perform very well. Responsible for graphics processing chip ARM Mali-T720, with a frequency of 550 MHz. The amount of internal storage for files is 64 GB, but it can be increased by exactly 2 times using the appropriate flash card.
For the first time, the manufacturer decides to release a gadget with a widescreen display of considerable dimensions – about 13.3 inches or 33.78 centimeters. The resolution of the IPS matrix is also pleasing and corresponds to the format parameters Full HD – 1920 x 1080 pixels. With a keyboard and mouse, the device can replace a simple laptop. For this, a USB-OTG port is provided, as well as Bluetooth – a connection. DIGMA CITI 3000 is equipped with two cameras: the main one with a 5 Mp matrix and the front one with 2 Mp. It is not recommended to use them for shooting, but it is very possible to communicate on social networks by video call.

BQ 1077L Armor PRO LTE
Battery capacity: 8000 mAh
The slightly ascetic and simple look of this tablet seems to hint that the device is aimed at an unassuming audience. Its work is provided by the Spreadtrum SC9832 processor with 4 cores and a frequency of 1300 MHz, 1 GB of RAM and only 8 gigs of internal storage. Fortunately, the latter can be expanded by 32 GB using a flash card.
Like the opponent, the BQ 1077L Armor PRO LTE is equipped with an 8000mAh battery. The display resolution is also the same: 1280 × 800 pixels. Thanks to the built-in light sensor, the screen brightness is automatically adjusted.
Cameras also may not meet the needs of demanding users – only 2 and 0.3 megapixels on the main and front panels. The presence of an LED flash is good news, but it is not able to improve the quality of the photo either. As a result, this tablet can only be used for social networks and as an ordinary 'reader'.
- affordable price;
- long battery life;
- the ability to install 2 SIM cards;
- availability of support for LTE networks.
- small amount of RAM and built-in memory;

The technical equipment of the Irbis TZ151 is inferior to many modern counterparts. Here you can find the old Spreadtrum SC7731G processor, 4 cores of which operate at 1.3 GHz, as well as not the best choice of RAM size: only 1 GB. The built-in memory in the device is 16 GB, but it can be increased by a microSDHC card by another 32 gigabytes.
On the other hand, the TZ151 is equipped with 8,000 mAh batteries, which is certainly worthy of respect. All the technical stuffing is hidden in a reinforced case, so there is no need to be afraid of accidental drops and hits of the gadget. The tablet is equipped with a main 2-megapixel camera and the weakest front-facing camera at as much as 300 kilopixels. Also worth noting is the 10.1-inch display with an IPS matrix and a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. This is quite enough for comfortable surfing the Internet and watching various video content.
- withstands falls and bumps thanks to the reinforced body;
- energy-intensive battery 8000 mAh;
- very low price.
- long charge (5-6 hours);
- no support for LTE (4G) network;
- weakest cameras.
