Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G 10.1 Review

{tocify} $title={Table of Contents}

Introduction

We haven't tested one Vivax tablet for a long time, but now is the right time to test a tablet from a popular domestic manufacturer, which is popular not only for these devices but also for TVs, air conditioners, audio devices, white technology and various household electronics. By the way, we have tested a large number of their devices, and you can find all the reviews on this link to our portal.

This time we have tested their new Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G, which boasts a large screen and support for 4G LTE, so it is fully capable of a lot, both for surfing the Internet and for telephoning and sending text messages. As it is a tablet device with basic characteristics, it will be liked by those for whom high speed is not important, or for whom reliability means more. It seems to me that the youngest might especially like it for movies, games and educational content, and the oldest who can read online portals, pay bills and other little things.

By the hardware characteristics themselves, I also notice how the tablet has progressed, so evolutionarily in line with what I often call “faster, more, stronger”. True, the steps here are small, but they are noticeable. Also, it is still an affordable device so it will be appealing to many who want to get a new tablet device and don’t have a lot of money. If the TPC-105 model is in the range of previously tested tablets

You can find this tablet on the official Vivax website , where you will also find a list of stores and webshops where you can get this cute tablet from a local manufacturer.

As always, we will first peek into the box and see what we got with this tablet device, and then we will "dissect" it in detail and see what it can really do.


Unboxing

The box is large, white, and already on the top cover you will see all the basic features that this tablet device has. In the box at the very top is our tablet device, and everything else you will find in the lower part under the cardboard cover.

The smaller box contains a charger with a USB Type-C cable, both black, then bold instructions for users with a warranty card, another additional instruction on how to charge the tablet, and as a gift you will also receive a protective screen foil, although there is a protective foil on the screen itself. But you know the saying - excess heads do not hurt, and we can certainly apply this in this case. Let it be found :)

Design

The exterior itself is, in short, a classic. The front is dominated by a large screen that has a front camera at the top, the edges are slightly thicker, which is common on tablets. The case itself is plastic and there is a gray color. The back of the case has that soft velvety feeling under the fingers that is pleasant to the touch, but if you have greasy fingers (and who doesn't!) They can remain "spots" that can be cleaned, but with something more effort. In the upper right corner in a special frame is the rear camera with the corresponding LED flash, in the middle of the case is the company logo, while at the bottom are some more data and certificates.

The inputs and outputs are on the edges - on the top there is a plastic volume up button, a power button and a 3.5mm audio input, on the bottom there are two speakers while on the left there is a USB Type-C input for charging devices and transferring data, and under the oblong plastic cover are slots for nanoSIM and microSD cards. Of course, there are possibilities of wireless connection, we'll talk more about that later.

As for the dimensions, they are 245 x 163 x 9 millimeters, and it weighs about 500 grams, we would say the standard thickness and weight for this type of tablet device. Everything is in place and you will easily manage.


Screen

And the screen is standard for this category of affordable tablets. In particular, it is a 10.1-inch IPS screen, has an HD resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels (149 ppi, 16:10 aspect ratio), and is sensitive to simultaneous touch in 5 points (multitouch), which can be useful in gaming. These screens with a large diagonal and low resolution are great for those who have poor eyesight or older users who will be able to comfortably follow the Internet content or read online newspapers.

The screen is large and the content is very visible, the letters and icons are clear and legible enough, and you can additionally adjust the content display in the settings. Also, the screen responds very well to touch and is easy to clean with an ordinary dry cloth, and I remind you that there is a protective foil for the screen on it, and there is another extra in the box.

We measured the brightness of the screen with our measuring instrument and got a result of 271 Lux, which is enough for use indoors, while you will lack brightness outdoors.


CPU/GPU/RAM/ROM

The Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G runs on the increasingly used Unisoc Tiger T310 processor. We’ve already had a chance to try it out on some smartphones, but it will be interesting to see how it behaves on this big screen, especially in video games. What I do know is how they are developed in the new DynamIQ technology, they are very agile and behave very well in all conditions, and this is also the first 4-core processor to support 4G LTE networks.

Otherwise, it is a 4-core processor that has the following core layout:

- 1x ARM Cortex-A75 at 2.0 GHz

- 3x ARM Cortex-A55 at 1.8 GHz

For those who don't know, Unisoc is a company that was created in 2018 by merging Spreadtrum Communications and RDA Microelectronics, that's how Unisoc was created. Even Intel has invested with about $ 1.5 billion so the 20 percent owner is a shareholder in the company. The company is also developing its new 5G processors that will use Intel's 5G modem.

Let's also mention that the processor has a PowerVR Rogue 8300 at 800MHz, and 3 GB of LPDDR3 RAM with 32GB of internal memory expandable via microSD input up to 64GB. All in all, it looks promising.


Cameras

The cameras are a bit better in terms of "megapixel" than the previous models we tested, but they are still very basic features that are… hm, basic. I would almost say unusable, but that is to be expected. This tablet is for everything except photography. The same goes for an app that has very few customization options.

Let's mention that the front camera is 2MP and supports HD video recording at 1280 x 720 pixels and 30 frames per second in MP4 format, and the same goes for the rear camera, except that it is 5MP and has an LED flash which is quite weak so that you will only be able to use it at a very short distance.

Cameras are certainly not the reason why you will buy this tablet, but some other features could very well be.


Audio/video

A pleasant surprise are definitely the two speakers located on the bottom of the tablet, in the left and right corners. I do not mean the quality that is standard in this price range, but its strength is a real refreshment, it is far stronger than I expected. Penetrating and whistling like that, but strong, there is no doubt about that. Of course, you will get much higher quality if you connect wireless or wired headphones or a speaker.

We tested several of our test music tracks in top FLAC quality and with our measuring instrument at a distance of about 40 centimeters (approximately how far the smartphone is from your ear when you hold it in your hand) we measured the speaker power of as much as 90.0dB, which is unexpected strong, even stronger than some robust smartphones! In other words, the power is there, the quality is “level” so I can give a light finger up.


OS / APP

As expected, Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G runs on a slightly older version of Android 11 operating system, supports Croatian and other languages ​​(multilanguage). Given the capabilities of the tablet, it's not so much a drawback that it doesn't have a new version of the OS, what I'm more interested in is whether it works stably and fluidly.

And it works. The Unisoc processor seems to do its job very well so the tablet to my surprise runs pretty smoothly, it started to slow down a bit only when I loaded it with multiple apps, but this is again expected due to the amount of working memory. Once again, I remind you of our video " how to speed up the smartphone ", which is fully true for tablets.

Only basic apps are pre-installed to give you more room for your apps. Interestingly, there is no FM radio. What makes me especially happy, although I don't know why, is the FM radio still present.

Connectivity

Even though it is a tablet device, you can make phone calls to it! How you’re going to do that is another question, but many don’t even know how there are tablets that support mobile networks and that can’t be telephoned and sent text messages. You can do this. As for the quality of the conversation, it is basic. Otherwise, place the nanoSIM card in the slot under the rubberized cover on the left side.

Regarding the possibility of connection, here are the details:

• 2G GSM: 850/900/1800 / 1900MHz

• 3G WCDMA: 900 / 2100MHz

• 4G LTE: B1 / B3 / B7 / B20

• Wi-Fi (b / g / n)

• Bluetooth 4.0

• OTA, OTG, USB Type-C

• GPS (A-GPS)

During GPS testing, we found 17 satellites (12 active) with an accuracy of 6 meters.


Battery

The lithium-polymer battery is actually quite ok, it didn't surprise or disappoint me in any way. Otherwise, the capacity is 5800mAh, and for charging in the box you have a charger of 5V / 2A or 10W. We tried charging with faster chargers, but the battery didn't allow it.

After several consecutive charges, we obtained the following results:

- 33% in 30 minutes

- 50% in 60 minutes

- 68% in 90 minutes

- 86% in 120 minutes

- 100% in 150 minutes (2:30 hours)

In our surfing endurance test with the screen on (50% brightness), the battery lasted a solid 9 hours and 25 minutes, which is slightly more than the average of 8 hours. What I have noticed is that the charge is very stable and always charges at the same speed which is good. Also, I notice that the battery is very durable on standby, so if you use it infrequently it could take days. It has been declared for 100 hours, but it seems to me that it could take much longer. If you want it to last even longer, be sure to turn off all applications and services that you do not need (Bluetooth, GPS, data traffic, background applications).


Video games

Although it is a 4-core processor, the Tiger T310 processor has proven to be very solid in video games as well, although of course this is not a gaming processor. We’re testing a 10.1-inch tablet for the first time, so I was keenly interested in how the video games would behave. Here are our gaming impressions.

- PUBG Mobile - a third-person network shooter - find weapons and fix everything you can around you! The game works very well, jerks and slowdowns are rare. The heating of the device is low.

- Real Racing 3 - still the most realistic racing simulation on the Android platform, a real challenge to play and test… .. the game runs surprisingly smoothly, even when there are more cars on the screen. The warm-up of the smartphone is still low.

Honestly, I didn’t expect this! It seems that the Unisoc Tiger T310 processor doesn't mind the big screen, but it makes sense because it's just HD + resolution, which is easier to "chew" than the smaller screen and FHD + resolution. Well done to Unisoc, well done to Vivax. When playing video games, the tablet was heated in the area under the rear camera, the heat was felt but nothing to worry about.


Benchmark tests

We have also done a handful of synthetic benchmark tests that can serve as a guide to the power, speed and capabilities of this device.

Evo benchmark brojki:

– AnTuTu – 133252

– Geekbench – 361 (Single-Core), 710 (Multi-Core)

– Vellamo – 5293 (Browser), 2648 (Multicore), 2932 (Metal)

– PCMark – 6655

– 3DMark – 384

– Basemark – 8437 (Simple), 769 (Medium), OpenGL ES3.1

– MobileBench – 272

– AI Benchmark – 27,3K

– AITuTu – 55011

The figures achieved are slightly lower compared to some other models we tested with that processor, but I have to admit I don’t feel that in practice. The tablet just works well and point! During testing, the device warmed up a bit.


Conclusion

Although I didn't expect that, the new Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G still managed to pleasantly surprise me. It is a tablet that belongs to the most affordable class so it is affordable for everyone, and it seems that it could find its many new owners, and here's why.

To begin with, let's mention that it supports 4G LTE networks, so in addition to surfing on your own Internet, you can also make phone calls and send text messages. Also, we were pleasantly surprised by the unexpectedly strong speakers, and the same goes for playing video games that are better than I thought. If we add a large screen, microSD support and a very good battery, all this shows that the Vivax Tablet TPC-105 4G leans towards multimedia so that it is ideal for kids, but also for the third age.

Forget about the cameras, you have it on your smartphone anyway, some will miss the LED notification (I don’t) and the dark mode which is something I love. But when I add it all up and subtract the tablet, he managed to bring a smile to my face by giving it a “like”.

For the purposes of this review, we purchased the device on the Vivax official website , which we also recommend. The selling price ranges from 1,099 to 1,199 kuna, depending on the point of sale, which is a fair price for a 4G tablet.
