Construction / quality
Tablet youth issue
I regret exceedingly that we received for testing just black variant of the tablet Overmax Newbase III, because I'm extremely curious to see how the other colors present in reality. The housing is made entirely of plastic, which glistens on his back. Consequently, the body looks great and certainly other colors only add to the charm here. It is impossible not to notice that this equipment will be finished soon to draw, and the resulting damage will be very easy to see. Sam Overmax aware of this issue and adds to the set case. In practice, even this protection does not guarantee one hundred percent protection – During testing, we were able to notice a few new scratches on the middle of the back, in spite of the use case. [Nggallery id = 822 template = techmaniak] The front of the covered with foil, which suggests that we are dealing not with a glass screen coating, and plastic. Ultimately, however opowiedziałbym to the first, in that the cover is very rigid, and only at a higher pressure spots are visible on the display. Running around the screen frame are wide, which makes a bit clumsy impression, but the tablet is not heavy and feels good in your hand. The individual elements of the folded structure with due care – buttons and connections are on one edge, and it includes the switch, microUSB port, audio jack for the charger output miniHDMI and located underneath a microSD card slot.
The facilities were also camera and camcorder for video calls. The main system has a resolution of 2 MP and was deprived of auto focus and flash. As you might expect, mounted optics do not allow stunning photography, but I'm pleasantly surprised. Photos admittedly not reflect the actual color and lacking in some details, but they present themselves decently, as in the shelf price. Video mode allows you to record movies in 480 lines vertically, at 12 frames per second. The material suffers from the lack of image stabilization, and its quality is mediocre.
Very dark matrix TN
Low price involves some sacrifices – in the case of the tested model most strongly affected the screen. Installed here matrix TN, and therefore representative of the old, now rarely used technology. As a result, the display has narrow viewing angles – the colors are severely distorted when changing perspective. But that's not the end of problems. Another is a low resolution (1024 by 600 pixels), which is associated with niewysokim density of pixels per inch – the image is blurred and the characters have jagged outlines.In addition to these drawbacks, the matrix still has one weak point – the backlight. Our measurements showed that the illumination at the maximum gives light intensity 79 cd / m 2. This value extremely low. Even lower than that used in our battery tests. The device can not be used outside because even on cloudy days readability is low. Minimum illumination is 26 cd / m 2, and thus, the range is rather narrow. The matrix supports up to 5 pressure points.
The average speaker, compatible with OTG
Multimedia equipment tablet extended by mono speaker located on the rear – the system has been very elegantly integrated into the body of the tablet. Emits the sound of the average intensity (81 dB), the sound quality is not the worst. Indeed, the depth of the bass will not experience, but the upper tones even at maximum volume are not distorted. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "19984"] Wi-Fi Test showed that the built-in wireless is very sensitive. Although I noticed a larger than usual fall within the first scenario, access to the Net was maintained even in the third, the most difficult test when the tablet and router are on separate floors of the building. The device is not installed or the GPS, or Bluetooth.Tablet surprisingly broad compatibility with accessories OTG. I was able to connect and handle external drives (with and without their own power supply), USB Key, mouse and HUB-y (active and passive). Model recognizes both common file system, ie. FAT32 and NTFS. I plugged the 3G modem, which carry out the configuration settings tablet in the "Mobile networks". The tablet installed internal memory capacity of 8 GB with the possibility of porting applications to external memory cards.
4 hours away from the socket
The device is mounted battery with a capacity standard for this segment of tablets – 3000 mAh. Due to the limitation of the maximum force backlight, our tests performed exceptionally with brightness 79 cd / m 2, but even at a value lower than the one used in our test procedures (120 cd / m 2) battery is not recorded impressive runs. Allowed for 4 hours surfing the Web using Wi-Fi or about an hour, when we use an external modem. We can not count on the fact that the tablet will last a full day without having to recharge the cell.

Performance / functionality
This tablet is unpredictable!
Hardware configuration Rockchip RK3168 completes the system with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and a PowerVR SGX540 graphics and a main memory capacity of 1 GB. This equipment, which unfortunately will not allow your tablet to keep up with new productions from the store Google. Processor debuted last year, but the layout is too weak to provide good performance in games. It's a shame that there is even pokuszono of Allwinner, which is a model Quattor 7 II. I wanted to try out the game's Asphalt 8: Airborne, but this is incompatible with the device. I tried an earlier installment of this title and it works fully fluent. The game is jammed at the time of saving the screenshot, but it was the only time. I also managed to install Dead Trigger 2, which launched on the average graphic detail. Here a big surprise, because as far as the beginning of the game gently jammed, then it was just better. Still, I suggest going down to the lowest level of detail. Browsers do not have a high comfort of operation. Both scrolling and zooming in or out are made of light snares. Tablet coped well while our video files, and even handled DTS codec. Way to go! 4K movies could not be played, but also the efficiency of the Newbase III did not expect. [Wptab style = "4" title = "Agents"] 1.

Tablet operates on the Android version 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and found there to be more options update OTA (Over The Air, that is, without hooking the tablet to the computer), but the new software is live to see this is not known. Judging by the hardware configuration, upatrywałbym more amendments than upgrade. The system works fairly well, although doing worse moments. This is especially when scrolling through the list of applications – accompanying animation operation is not marked by the greatest liquidity. Do not tampered with the appearance of the system and applications only added a few programs section of bloatware. Nothing unless someone still uses e-mail.

Summary / evaluation / review
Something at the expense of something
Overmax Newbase III is a low-cost tablet, whose greatest strength is small price. In giving 250 gold, we can not expect too much and this equipment is the confirmation. It has a poor display, poor hardware configuration and works on the Android in the old version. Yes, it is not possible to compete with more expensive models, but in turn, its price category can be sensible choice. Due to the fact that it is in several colors, preferably a child's hands will perform. Then the equipment will not leave the house, and this will solve the two biggest problems of weak backlight and short runs on batteries.
