Android Tablet SuperPAD Flytouch What’s New Tablet Review

It is a great entry level or getting in to Android world for basic tasks.
But please be aware that this is low spec tablet with really cheap price tag.
It will not be comparable to branded tablets, such as iPad or Samsung.

Overall

Design 2/5
Feature 3/5
Performance 2/5
Price 5/5

Pros

  • Cheap 10" tablet
  • Wide range of output ports USB, microSD, ethernet, GPS, and HDMI output

Cons

  • Slow performance for some games
  • Short battery life (2-3 hours)

Design (built/dimensions/screen)

SuperPAD Flytouch has a crude design but have all its essentials well positioned.
It has grey plastic body with reasonable built - it is not comparable to other branded tablets but it is quite reasonable when you look at its tiny little price tag.
There is a number of physical buttons including menu, power, cancel, sound +-, Wifi, and reset.
Those buttons might seem overwhelming at first but we found ourselves using those buttons whenever we can due to its resistive screen responsiveness.

It comes in 10" screen with 27cm x 17cm x 1.2cm (1.5cm thickest) and weights 1.2kg.
There are a number of accessories available on eBay or other websites.
It is quite thick compared to other recent models of tablet.

The screen is single touch Resistive screen with resolution1024 x 600 (16:9 ratio).
The screen is quite normal TFT LCD 16M colour depth.
This resistive screen is a huge drawback of this tablet and probably making it so affordable.
If you do not mind about the resistive screen which is less responsive than capacitive screen.
We had to use the tablet for few hours before we could get used to the touch.
Even after that, it still felt lack of responsiveness but it was barely good enough for day to day tasks.

Feature (android os/ports/battery life)

In our opinion, SuperPAD Flytouch had most number of firmware updates and customer firmwares are widely available.
It is now in latest Android 4.0 ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The user interface is quite simple to use and it comes with a quick tutorial after factory reset
But it still lacks proper manual or guidelines (it is a common problem for most of Android devices due to frequent updates).

There is front cameras 2.0 MP.
The picture quality is really really poor - but again... you will get what you paid for.

It comes with general features such as:

  • WIFI 802.11 b/g and 3G dongle (802.11n is not supported)
  • Ethernet connection (RJ41)
  • 4 way G-Sensor
  • Flash 10.3
  • micro SD card slot - supports up to 16 GB
  • 2x USB port
  • mini HDMI port
  • GPS
  • Speaker/Microphone/3.5mm audio jack

But it lacks Bluetooth feature.
The GPS has weak reception and requires line of sight to clear sky.

It is powered by 5000mAH battery.
We are unsure if it is the hardware or Android design but eventhough we put the tablet on hibernation, it was still draining battery very quickly.
In general it lasts around 2-3 hours of battery time with full charge.

Performance (cpu/ram/hdd)

  • CPU VC882 Embedded 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 32-bit processor core
  • DDR3 1GB

It is a low-end speced tablet with cheap price.
The performance was acceptable for browsing or watching movies.
But games and other heavy apps were laggy. We even experienced lagging with some of Angry Birds stages.

Price

The price is around $180. It might be the only reason for buying this tablet.
