Tablet as a phone? Some time ago I probably would have astonished us, but now, when the phones are getting larger and smaller tablets, such a connection is no longer surprising. An example of a device that fits in perfectly with the current trend is NavRoad NEXO Evo. Let's see if it is worth the money and whether it actually constitutes a threat to przecierającego trails in this category Fonepada.

Housing / quality
Neat, compact and well made "
Evo is one of the smaller ones, if not the smallest tablet I've ever faced. It can fit in your pocket, which is a huge advantage, especially in the case of a device with phone function. What's more, the tablet is surprisingly lightweight (only 288 grams) – lighter than the Nexus 7 2013 (290 grams), Fonepada (340 grams) and most of the competitors in this format. Balancing the need to include a plus, because it is enjoyable, and longer holding the device in one hand does not cause soreness. [Nggallery id = 568 template = techmaniak] Also in terms of quality of performance Evo deserves praise. The combination of aluminum on the back panel with a matte plastic on the sides looks very aesthetically pleasing. The fitting of components does not leave much to be desired – no creaks, the structure is rigid and compact. The only small thing, which you can find fault, inaccurate matching caps SD card and SIM card. This results in a visible pussy who can throw in your eyes (especially if the SIM card is inserted in a bright color). Located on the upper left edge of the device (holding vertical) three buttons are a very good fit with the housing and do not have the characteristic of a large part of the tablet middle and lower shelves, annoying backlash. They are exactly as they should be. Mono speaker was located in the back, next to the camera lens – is characterized by the average quality and volume (measured by us the maximum value was 79 dB).Camera tablet is unfortunately one of his weak points. 2-megapixel sensor takes pictures whose quality leaves much to be desired, especially when lighting other than daily. It is no different with the camera, which though making films in Full HD resolution (12 frames per second) is the quality is very poor. See for yourself.
Not bad, but …
Display Evo is standard among 7-inch tablets from the middle shelf. Resolution 1280 x 800 pixels gives a density of at 216 points per inch. In practice, it is the amount sufficient to comfortably surf the web and read a book. Far this matrix to a razor with the Nexus but remember that we are dealing with a lot less expensive device. The colors displayed on the screen look very nice, are well saturated and thanks to IPS technology are not significant distortions deviation.The maximum recorded by us was 341 cd/m2 brightness which is quite a good result, which allows you to use the tablet as on sunny days. Reducing the strength of the backlight to a minimum, we can count on a 26 cd/m2, making reading at night should be especially tiring for the eyes. The uneven backlight at maximum brightness is 15%, while remaining within the same within acceptable limits. It is worth to write a few sentences about the touch panel used in the Evo. Most of the time he responds correctly and lovingly, but it happens that you have to repeat the act of touching that equipment responded. This is not an onerous task because there occasionally, but worth mentioning. The panel supports up to 5 independent touch points.
A complete set of modules
The manufacturer tried to make-reviewed model is equipped with no less than the competition. So we get a robust set of components that can be useful to us in everyday use. First in order, operating in 802.11 b / g / n WiFi, did not disappoint. In the test scenarios, we always managed to get a stable connection. The second day went Bluetooth, which also did not show any weakness. No problem collaborated with a wireless keyboard and enable efficient sharing of content with other devices. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "19670"] Built-in 3G (WCDMA 900/2100 MHz) allows for seamless work outside the home or office. Does not tend to losing the signal, providing connectivity where most ordinary phones. It is also worth noting that provides support for networks Aero2.Evo also comes with the front speaker phone and microphone, which in conjunction with the applications for calling and sending messages makes it a full-fledged phone. To my surprise, the use of this device for voice chat was quite pleasant. The only thing that bothered in achieving total comfort, it's a lot for a handset size and … strange looks from passers. It's hard to say whether they spoke mockery or simple curiosity, but if you do not like to attract attention, you have to remember to carry a headset. GPS unfortunately long catches signal after switching data is slightly better. But when we can already catch "fixa", the stability of the connection rather we will not complain. Using Evo as navigation, using the pre-installed by the manufacturer of the application Yanosik not cause any problems. I got to the office the whole, healthy, niespóźniony and without a mandate. Tablet lets you use external devices via USB OTG – connect a mouse and read out the contents of flash memory and hard drives, provided that use FAT32 (for lack of support for NTFS). Evo cope well with USB distributors – whether passive or active. It is also the occasion to mention the micro HDMI connector, so that you can easily pass the image from the tablet to a monitor or TV. The manufacturer offers 8 GB of memory on-board, of which the user is 5.44 GB. The internal system memory is 1 GB, after deducting space for installed applications is around 370 MB. Applications can be moved to storage memory, but not on an external medium (tablet supports microSD cards).
Small but good battery runtimes
Although the battery tablet does not offer tremendous capacity is surprisingly surprising Slow work on a single charge. Evo allows for more than eight hours browsing the web via WiFi, and watching movies. It is worth noting that the battery is charging quite fast which also include a plus. In addition to energy devices will need more than two hours, using the supplied charger 5V/2A.

Performance / functionality
In terms of efficiency, the new NEXO is a typical mid-level. We'll play on it all the easier course of the game and most of the more demanding. Unfortunately, these last will be on display at most medium sized parts. Among the titles we've tested, Andry Birds Star Wars , GT Racing 2 Modern Combat 4 and Dead Trigger 2 went smoothly, and the game was quite enjoyable. Unfortunately, Real Racing 3 is not visible to the device on Google Play. [Wptab style = "4" title = "Browser and System"] 1 Browser Tests Tests tablet performance for browsing the web.

The device is running Android version 4.2.2. with stockowym interface. Manufacturer tempted to add a few applications from each other, but they are free items that they might as well download (Ebook Reader, File Manager, Yanosik). In everyday use, the system does not cause any problems. Everything is smooth and stable, even when several applications are running in the background.
A summary, evaluation and review
Versatile and inexpensive
NavRoad NEXO Evo is a tablet worthy of interest if you are looking for a low-cost, multi-function device. It is small enough to be able to use it as a phone and at the same time sufficiently large to ensure the comfort of browsing the web or watching movies. It has a few minor flaws, but they remain in the shadow of a long list of features, the head of which is shown above all sensational value for the opportunities offered. It is possible that this could jeopardize similarly-featured tablet from Fonepad. [Temperatura2 product_id = "19670"]
In terms of functionality, equipment and the closest destination device is definitely Fonepad which is more expensive by about 100 zł. If you would be taking into account the price and equipment, is one of the few alternative proposals Haier is 7.85. However, it is larger and less handy 4:3 aspect ratio, which is important if we want to use it as a phone.
Answers to Your Questions
greg: can it will be a comparison of nexo it? As if the processor and the graphics when you can expect the publication of test Him is better than the Evo both in terms of performance and graphics capabilities. In addition to performance hard to compare them to each other, because they are quite different devices. Atmo: Ok, check performance, screen, wifi sensitivity. And compare with other equipment in this class because it is cheap for your equipment. Maybe even use some test Nexo free because I'm interested in it. Most close in terms of equipment and prices Haier tablet is 7.85. I invite you to familiarize yourself with the test. NEXO Free Test soon. Agentos: Check suitability as car navigation – test with some commercial software such as Automap, MapaMap, and battery life. Checked AutoMapa navigation through applications and Yanosik. As I wrote in the test, the GPS signal is catching a long time (several minutes, sometimes up to a dozen), we manage to catch him is rather fine. However, directly comparing the best modules for mobile, automotive navigations or Evo performs poorly when it comes to sensitivity. Mundek: What is the real performance and what is the call quality nexo evo When it comes to performance, in practice, this is good. The system works smoothly and quickly, and most games work flawlessly. Call quality is also fine – both the speaker and the microphone act as a mid-range phone. Michal: Question about communication: Give WiFi: 802.11 a / b / g / n and the manufacturer's website is: 802.11b/g/n And how is in reality? In fact, it is 802.11 b / g / n 😉 QB: What is the charging socket or separate MUSB. Tablet load via the micro USB.
