This device is made of plastic body as it is not that costly but it still does look a little premium then it’s price. This looks like a well-built device and it’s 8.1 millimetre thin and the weight of the device is 480 grams. Now, this whole device has got a sort of metal frame which looks good. In my opinion this device has a really good design according to its price.

On the top of the device, we get to see two speakers which are front facing. On the bottom of the device we get to see connectors for the dock. There is USB Type-C Port, microphone, and a Micro-SD card slot at the right side of the device. Power and volume buttons are placed on left side of the device.


Tab M10 comes with 10.1-inch Full HD display. For me this is a nice display in a budget category device. Now, the resolution of the screen is 1920 x 1200 pixels and it has an aspect ratio of 16:10. The viewing angles are great because of IPS panel.

The color reproduction and contrast are good as well. Now, this device is bright enough to use in indoor lightning conditions but it would be really difficult to use it in direct sunlight.


My device has got Snapdragon 450 with octa-core processor. There is 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. And there is also option for 3 GB RAM and 32 GB memory as well. 

There is a light for notifications with front camera. The sound of the front firing speakers are not that good and it is just fine according to the price.

If you are thinking to use this tablet for surfing net, watching Youtube or reading e-books then I definitely recommend you to buy this device. The processor is good enough to perform all this type of daily tasks without any issues.

Photo or video editing is also possible in this tablet but I would not recommend you because it does not have that much processing power. Photo and Video editing applications is not as smooth as it is on high end tablet.

When it comes to gaming, this device is not too good for high-end games but simpler games are playable. Games like subway surfers were working smoothly but when PUBG was being played, I was experiencing some minor lags even at lowest graphics settings.


This device has got a 5 MP shooter on the back of the device and a 2 MP shooter on the front. Now, as I expected both of the cameras are not good which is fine on a budget tablet. You might find it useful, if you want to use this device for some quick photos of documents and stuff like that. And the same goes for the front facing camera as well, you will find it useful if you want to do some skype calling or any type of video call.

The battery here is 4850 mAh. Now, when I tested the battery life of this device, it lasted for 8 hours and in this test I watched the video until it runs out of power. To be honest, it is very disappointing as I thought that atleast it would last for 10 hours and that might be possible if we turned down the brightness to the lowest. Overall, the battery life is just OK as I expected it to last a little longer.


If I need to buy this tablet, I would definitely buy this device as it is a great device with great build quality, Full HD display, good overall performance, good for light gaming as well. What disappointed me the most is the battery life of this device. But for an average user, it would definitely last a whole day. In short, this is great device for budget category.
