Make a good impression on me …
We go to the store to purchase a new dream tablet. In addition to choosing the amount you have, or specification of the product plays an important role first contact. When I already knew how to present a new Kiano Elegance decided to check the reaction of others, but it was predictable. Not overflowing with neat picture box, and in it a device that surprised his class from the very beginning.Kiano Elegance 8 greets us with a glossy front with 7.85-inch IPS screen which appears on camera and built-in speaker. Back and sides forming a whole are made of brushed aluminum, which gives us at the outset feel that housing is robust, fit and strong. Sam when I took the device for the first time in the hands of watched to find some weakness even in the cover on the sim card, but it proved to be impossible. So I can honestly write that the performance of the external is at a high level, which along with the design of the Italian designer creates an image of the device worthy of attention. The manufacturer of the device itself apart in a box placed AC charger, USB cable, headphones and adapter usb hub that can be used to connect a keyboard for example.
Because what counts is what you have in yourself …
As I mentioned earlier Kiano Elegance 8 is equipped with a 7.85 inch IPS screen (capacitive, of course) with a resolution of 1024×768. In the heart of the device beats 4 core CPU MediaTek MT8389 clocked at 1.2 GHz and 1 GB of RAM (DDR3). Our Kiano besides wireless wifi is also equipped with 3G module which is very useful for travel. I think that we can use the phone and this is another big plus. With further specification, replace the two cameras (2MP rear, 0.3 MP front), accelerometer, GPS, wireless communication Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio, and the whole works on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Kiano Elegance 8 3G – Technical Specifications
Examination of the use of …
After the initial presentation of the device it is time to describe everything related to the use, so I invite you to further review.
Display one of the most important features of each tablet in the presented model Kiano is of good quality. With IPS technology, we can not complain about the color, saturation or angle of view, which is often mischievous when we want to show what the person sitting next to. Sam's screen resolution is at the level of the standard, but it looks really nice. Viewed videos in good quality really give pleasure. The case of touch and response of the capacitive array also deserves recognition, because the use had no problem with the multiple moving icons etc.
Speed ii liquidity
Operation optimized Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is a positive feature in the test tablet. The device does not have any problems with liquidity, there should not be "freezes" and any errors. Web browsing, videos from youtube and applications is seamless. The operating system in conjunction with a powerful processor 4-core and 1GB is doing really well.
Games and applications
Things are a little different, however, if you dive into the world of games, which is known in the tablet is also important. If you do not search all the titles and look for holes in the whole decided to install only from what I would want to use. So on my device appeared: Real Racing 3, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 Commander. On first inspection fired Battlefield 4 Commander who works with my Playstation Game 4 of the tested 2D joined with servers online to help as commander of my team during the battle. Everything worked without any problem, and my game lasted about 1.5 hours. I did not see nothing disturbing and happy moved on to the next test.The second position that is taken care of probably all known soccer game FIFA 14 requirements compared to Battlefield 4 Commander increased considerably, because in this case we are dealing now with a 3D game. The game started, wczytało the intro and after a few seconds I ran coveted game. The game ran smoothly and did not see any error here in action until he scored a goal. At the moment you see the animation shows where my players are pleased with obtaining guidance. The decrease fps s was already visible, but not coagulated game to end so I continued. The match itself was smooth and the game but fps drop that heralded the problems in the next game he was Real Racing 3 Now is the time of firing the most challenging game of the three that I have chosen for testing. Real Racing 3 is a game with a 3d reflection of details and textures by what looks phenomenal. When you start the animation slowed down quite a bit, but after a while the race. Unfortunately, here also showed declines fps-s, especially in the moments when it came to cracked or overtaking a large number of rivals. Race finished, because despite declines game was possible, however, for someone who loves smooth playing this adventure would be a nuisance.
Picture quality vs. recording quality
Although I personally have never used a tablet device to take pictures, I think it's cool to be able to capture the moment on camera. Kiano has 2 cameras which, as I stated earlier have a resolution of 2MP (principal back) and 0.3 MP (front). Plusuje is for those users who do besides images they want to use services such as Skype. A lot of cheap tablets usually has only one camera which limits opportunities for us. When it comes to picture quality it is rather weaker party to our "Eleganta". I checked this issue for taking pictures outside as well as inside the room with artificial lighting and in different weather conditions. Apart from the resolution that we can give a 2MP camera (1600x1200pix), images are very sharp, as if from another era. But keep in mind that the tablet is not a digital camera. If we want to capture in the picture is our Kiano fulfill the functions, but you can not expect miracles.Describing images somehow, you can not forget about the quality of the recorded video. With them I'm really more happy, but in my opinion they somehow also just correct. Tablet surrendered sprawdzianowi video recording at a resolution of 1280×720 and 640×480 (in different lighting conditions). I think that in the video also a key point is the lighting. While recording, you should use the Anti-Shake that stabilizes the vibrations when we move hand. The effects of inclusion can be seen in the first film to be recorded at a worse weather. To sum up, the quality of video is adequate for resolution 2MP camera and if anyone expects more must remember that the tablet is not a camera.
Music and Movies
The sound quality that comes with two speakers mounted on the bottom is good and pure. Both at home, outdoors, or with increased intensity noise (gallery) I can not fault them because they play satisfactorily. Also became interested in how the quality of the music on headphones manufacturer and here when it comes to music is closer to the mono than stereo. If the manufacturer takes it seriously headphones should be of better quality. I will only add that with Elegance 8 open the music files like MP3, WMA, 3GP, AAC, FLAC, WAV, OGG. Video viewing of cards or youtube on the screen of our Kiano present themselves really well. IPS matrix combined with good quality and resolution are watching a movie will not disappointment and even delight us. When it comes to video formats that play a tablet replace WMV, MKV, MOV, AVI, RM / RMVB, MPEG-2/4
Wifi, GPS, 3G
When it comes to a wifi connection, 3G and GPS case is as follows. When the wireless connection to my home router did not find anything alarming. Quick setup and good range. Tablet whether on the web or watching videos online did not raise any objections. 3g coverage while checking network play. Here, everything is normalized from where we are. If the operator is advertising believe coverage should be perfect everywhere but it's basically impossible. In the center of town and on the outskirts I had no problem connecting to the network. I managed SIA also take the tablet for a short trip fishing and there also could use the mobile Internet. I am satisfied with the action because I wanted to see what I checked and it was possible. A weakness, however, proved to be the GPS. Tested on application automapa behaved at least strange. In particular I have in mind the speed of connecting to the satellites in the city center. For me, it lasted from 3 to as much as seven minutes so far too long. Hurry while contact with the satellites followed when the tablet had a 3G card and running as the device is also supported with data from the network. Once the connection has been established and the signal was ok not died even when I walked into the building. Sometimes, however, was malicious accuracy of the GPS module as the example showed that I was 3 streets next.
At the end of my test two words on the battery that we have on board our device. Capacity of 3800 mA device specification gives the council quietly. So using a wifi connection durable me 6-7 hours and 3g connection adequately 5 – 6 hours. I think that a good result especially that using the tablet to check the post office, facebook, and a few important things we can charge it once every few days.
Honest assessment …
Kiano Elegance 8 Tablet 3G is a device that will impress your visitors with your design and precision performance. There is no way of comparing it to the cheapest tablet available in the market. Nice IPS screen, good optimization and reasonable battery will allow us to enjoy and use it for what we pay. With Kiano surfing the web, watching movies, chatting with friends or playing less demanding games will be a nice part of spending free time. I think that even a not very good picture quality, poor GPS and problems with more efficient games situate the device in high places in this price range. Keep in mind that the new Kiano Elegance 8 3G can be purchased at online auctions at a price 499zł. If your "piggy" bank is able to accommodate just this amount, it can be easy to beat and go to the purchase of this product. Sam after 3 weeks of use, I am pleasantly surprised and pleased, and tabletom this company I watched closely because this test made me realize that it is worth.
