Looking for a handy device for multimedia tablet may be of interest Overmax Quattor 7 II, which nicely presented and at the same time it is very cheap. The manufacturer boasts a model for display, but we will check whether the equipment is there any other advantages.
Abbreviation, or wideorecenzja Overmax Quattor 7 II
Construction / quality
Like most tablets with 7-inch displays, so the tested Overmax Quattor 7 II is characterized by elongated shape of the case, suggesting the holding device mostly in portrait position. The equipment is at the narrow, making it easy to hold it in one hand. Great matched colors. The front page is kept in a dark style (here is a screen surrounded by a narrow frames). Plecki in turn are garnet (manufacturer also offers other color variants). Are made of aluminum and are pleasant to touch. Both sides of the tablet combines a silver rim.Equipment tablet is actually a standard set with the exception of one additional element – the output miniHDMI. Located on the top edge of the device, separating it from the socket microUSB button to reset the device and audio output. On the right edge are two buttons to turn on / off the device and adjust the volume. Was located on the opposite side has a microSD slot. On his back, of course, we find the main camera, which has been nicely integrated into the body of the tablet. Similarly, the hidden multimedia speaker for longitudinal slit embellished with silver trim. [Nggallery id = 780 template = techmaniak] Aluminium is a huge plus, if we take into account the strength of the device. It is very sturdy and does not bend. Glass covering the screen is a loose one edge, I hope that it does not fall out before I finish testing the device. Cover a good weapon against deflections, because the effect of discoloration appearing on the screen as a result of too strong emphasis here is negligible. My objections are of physical buttons. They are very narrow, not encourage it to use them in addition sway exorbitantly under your finger.
Unfortunately, the built-in camera apart from anything else will not bring the profession. We get here a 2-megapixel without autofocus system or flash. Application for taking pictures varies with respect to this photo. We have here another graphical user interface, the ability to impose color effects to photographs (some even cool), we can determine the exposure and image quality. Funny the commands (do not know if intentional), and so the image quality can be "treated fine" or "fine", and by the auxiliary grid applications it …. GRID. : D When I watch the attached sample photo, is less to laugh. The camera tends to screen images under conditions of high insolation. It does not reflect very well the color, and the amount of detail is low. Surrounded by a small amount of ambient light you can see a large amount of noise. Because the lens does not have autofocus, photos are blurry. Cinema Mode brings no change, but here it is worth noting that the tablet recorded video has a resolution of 720p and is recorded at 13 frames / s
Nice to look at, but only in the room
Screen test model is the 7-inch IPS matrix of second generation (according to the manufacturer), which operates at a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels. Given the small size of the display density of pixels and the resolution is not high and easily odróżnimy individual points. In landscape mode easily look at websites in the computer version, but the viewing area is narrow (the browser shortcut bar and beam with virtual buttons Android take us a little workspace). IPS technology ensures excellent color reproduction and wide viewing angles. It can be seen during a dizzying ride in Asphalt 8 or reading a book in some awkward position. 🙂While the actual screen can be commended for the quality of the projected image, so much for the backlight no longer need to use a few words of criticism. Defining characteristic for this price segment luminance devices is mediocre – in the case of a test model to measure the maximum brightness of 176 cd/m2 was just – this translates into a lack of readability in sunlight. Brightness adjustment range is very narrow, and indicates a minimum value equal to 47 cd/m2 – if you would like to take the tablet at night, the screen will simply dazzle. The manufacturer, so to speak, a little messed up.
Flip the image from the tablet to a TV
As I mentioned earlier, the tablet mounted single speaker. Emits flattened sound, but loud (our measurements showed that the maximum intensity at 86 dB). Mono speaker can not be great listening experience, but it should be enough for basic applications. Its location is associated with this, unfortunately, that holding the tablet in a horizontal position can block it by hand. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "19924"] Built-in wireless card works in 802.11 a / b / g / n and our tests fared very poorly. In the first scenario, when the tablet was the router, there was a decrease considerably higher than expected. In the latter case, when the product has been on the floor below, and the way it was a few walls, the stability of the connection was minuscule. So if you mostly stay away from the router, you may have problems with access to the Web. The tablet is not physically installed GPS module. Location is done using an Internet connection.Problems with Wi-Fi can be solved by plugging an external modem. The manufacturer has adapted the tablet to such an eventuality, and even after removing the shortcut bar with beamed find the icon showing 3G coverage. Modem connection is done using the supplied adapter OTG. In the settings, the tablet will also find a list of compatible devices (screenshot below with your declared by the manufacturer of compatible modems). Using editorial modems I could not, however, connect to the network Aero2. In addition to an external modem, the tablet will handle the whole multitude of various other accessories OTG, including flash memory, HUB-s passive and active, mouse, keyboard, and larger data banks. An interesting model is compatible with the two file systems – FAT32 and NTFS (the latter usually is not supported). Furthermore, the manufacturer threw 16 GB built-in memory (a little over 11 is available to the user) and system memory (798 MB available). You can move applications between the two data stores. There's a microSD card slot that supports cards theoretically up to 32 GB, but we were able to easily take advantage of the 64-gigabyte media.
Feebly, very feebly
Traditionally, our battery tests conducted after reducing the screen brightness to 120 cd/m2. The results are not impressive: less than 3 hours watching movies and just over 2 browsing the internet while using Wi-Fi. Dip with a capacity of 2800 mAh does not give good waves, and at the same time requires a relatively long time to fully charge. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "video-wifi-off, internet-wifi-wifi communicator, load-ac" product_id = "19924"] Tablet does not allow for long work without electricity. Practice shows that the weak backlight will require constantly remain at the maximum of its value – this in turn will shorten battery life, and if we add the use of the media, do not tell fortunes good results. Using your tablet in your car, you should advance to equip a car charger, or energy bank. The equipment can also be charged by connecting to a computer.
Performance / functionality
Tablet is equipped with a processor Allwinner A31s, that system equipped with a 4-core Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, dual-core GPU PowerVR SGHX544MP2 and 1-gigabyte RAM. If the equipment has suffered in some respects, it is definitely for the price of this equipment. The system excels at gaming. Asphalt 8: Airborne automatically runs on high details and with this setting works fully fluent. Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour offers the same smooth gameplay.Allwinner not take his name out of nowhere, as well as dropped in a test of supported video files. Recreated even 4K files – what the hardware for the money is a worthy achievement underscores – coped well with DTS codec, which is rare. From the media is so great. Websites operated with high working culture – operations such as zooming in and out does not choke tablet.

The tested model operates on Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, which is his version of the now obsolete. Nowadays, even KitKat edition 4.4.2 is no longer valid, because we all await the update to version L. In this respect, so Quattor 7 II is two generations back. As a consolation, I will add that in the settings into a module to update the OTA (using the wireless network.) I do not even inform about the availability of the new version, but it works, and that's a good symptom. The very culture of the system does not raise my major complaints with the exception of the long waiting time for the launch of the tablet after pressing the alarm. The manufacturer does not interfere with graphics overlay system for the benefit of the speed of operation. Added whereas some applications, but nothing really special, unless someone else is using MSN Messenger. I would say that this application package is simply unnecessary – fortunately, you can uninstall any unwanted programs. I will mention just three points leaving applications: antivirus avast!, Kingsoft Office office suite and plug to handle Flash content.
Summary / evaluation / review
Tablet for use at home
Test Summary tablet Overmax Quattor 7 II comes with more difficulty, because the tablet combines two extremes. On the one hand, short runs on a battery and a very low intensity illumination disqualify it as a mobile equipment, but on the other hand, belongs to the above-average performance, especially when you consider the price of the device. Issue so clearly negative opinion in this case would be unfairly prejudicial – equipment will surely find many satisfied customers for which these defects will be of key importance.Who may be interested in Quattor 7 II? Those who will be looking for an inexpensive tablet to pogrania in newer titles or watch a movie in the comfort of your own home. In such tasks, equipment check is great. What captivated me the device is a clever use of materials, which have generated a robust design, IPS screen that displays pleasing to the eye image and the potential for media. [Temperatura2 product_id = "19924"]
As for the alternative model can not not mention the tablet Acer Iconia B1-730 HD, which has a poorer quality housing made of plastic and creaking, but it notes much better mileage on the battery, and persists the tested model in terms of performance. If anyone wondered about buying ModeCom 7001 HD IC I believe that Quattor 7 II, however, is a better option.
Specific: Is that like mobile, Overmax mechanical failure cancels the warranty? On the manufacturer's website for an overview warranty conditions and is only one mention of the time of cancellation of the guarantee:
