Insignia GOCLEVER 800M is a dedicated tablet ośmiocalowym less demanding users who appreciate the mobile Internet access. Equipment not only attracts the attention of a moderately priced, but also a nice cover. Are there any disadvantages? Check!
GOCLEVER Insignia 800M appeared on the Polish market quite recently, in December 2014 year. The device is available in two variants differ both in terms of equipment and systems. The model we tested is based on MediaTek8382 system and uses the Android platform – its price is about 450 zlotys . Reasonable price is mainly due to an aging somewhat the components – even so, the competition reaching for chips Intel Atom provides only a little more expensive models: for example, 8 Kiano Intelect 3G will have to pay about 500 zł . The market will also find a number of the older models, which will be similar to the tested performance of our GOCLEVER-a and still enjoying (as Ceneo.pl) very popular. They include, among others Lenovo A5500-H (approx. 600 zł ) and Kiano SlimTab 8 3G (approx. 500 zł ).
HOUSING / WORKMANSHIP
The low price of "Chinese" tablets mostly affects the quality of workmanship and materials used. Fortunately, this problem only in a small degree to the DUT. GOCLEVER Insignia 800M well presented – the manufacturer has not experimented and reached a proven set of materials. At first glance, is dominated by dark colors, but on closer inspection we find that aluminum tablet plecki are not actually black but dark brown. This side of the device has only two elements finished in black – plastic strips that are in the top and bottom of the tablet. They are consistent with a plastic frame around the glass panes running, covering the entire front part of the device. Evaluation of design is a matter of highly subjective. I see no reason why the Insignia 800M someone would not like, but at the same time easy to point out that Kiano Intelect 8 presents a much bolder 3G and easily memorable design. It is also worth mentioning that the Insignia 800M is not another clone of one of the popular Chinese devices – this is important because of the low price of the tablet. The tested model has an 8-inch screen, which is the dominant element of the front of the device. As already mentioned, the display cover glass that tests found to be susceptible to pressure. Even with a single thumb will cause the formation of spots on the panel, in addition, the cover seems to have a slightly milky in appearance, projecting slightly to receive the projected image. Whatever it was, however, not glass, will always win with a plastic cover, sometimes even encountered a cheap tablet. I did not notice that the tested model is pasted protective film which reveals the presence of a speaker is usually placed above the screen. The latter is not used to play multimedia sound and voice chat. Next to him there are two sensors – measuring light and proximity – and camera for video calls. The device is handy. The side edges have been developed with the idea – a set of physical buttons is located on the left side at the top of the housing, whereby we can use the tablet thumb of his left hand, if we keep the equipment in it. In addition to the two standard buttons – one to wake up the tablet and the other to adjust the volume – even get an extra button to return to the previous screen. The buttons are loosely embedded in the body of the device, thereby to move easily. At the same time have a deep jump and pushed them well. On the same side, but the bottom of the tablet positioned on a SIM card slot and microSD. Not subject to any caps, so the card will be inserted permanently visible (at the same time projecting a little); and if not, we will use the ports, it will be in them gather dust and dirt.On the rear, you will find the main camera without a flash. In the vicinity of ports located in the device reset button, and the lower, plastic strip was placed in stereo speakers. They play loud (volume reaches 78 dB), but the music sounds flat, as if the sound was also suppressed. Setting a maximum volume causes a slight distortion, and the presence of the bass is practically negligible. Overall, a good speaker, but more sensitive to rapidly shift their own headset – the relevant output of 3.5 mm is located on the bottom edge, next to the microUSB slot. [Temperatura_obudowa product_id = "20192"] elements are interconnected cared enough that only occasionally hear the creaking of the housing. The device makes an impression solid, mainly due to the materials used. The design also did not take the test during a major tendency to get hot. For the most part remained gentle heat, and the temperature recorded during the intensive exploitation of the device did not raise my objections.
Insignia 800M has a 2-megapixel camera and flash-free autofocus, and without that it is not able to perform photographs that could match the quality of the solutions available on the market competitive. You can use the standard Android application to be installed, which expanded the functionality of the HDR mode and the ability to take panorama. Do not deceive ourselves – easily find a better alternative to Google Play. Technical limitations of the device itself, however, does not will overcome. Recorded images suffer because of the low detail, the colors differ from the natural. No auto focus makes it difficult to correctly capture sharper images. The worst tablet copes night – missing more ISO that would brighten the picture. An example of cadres captured the night was made in light of the street lamps, and as you can see, the main subject in the photo is very dark. Equally poorly presented video – image is blurry, unstable and mediocre quality.
A sample video
I appreciate ośmiocalowe tablets for their versatility – allow for convenient consumption of content through the large screen, and at the same time are more mobile than the 10-inch solution. Better yet, if you installed the panel has a large density of pixels. Tested Insignia 800M has a screen resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, which gives a factor equal to 189 ppi density. This amount of displayed points already allows for comfortable reading web pages, but you have to discern the individual pixels. On the other hand, I would not expect a higher resolution when tested devices – similar parameters to meet their competitors, eg .: Kiano Intelect 8 3G or Lenovo A5500-H. Models that have a Full HD screens is still a higher shelf: to include even those recently tested by Lenovo S8-50L us (IPS, 1920 by 1200 pixels), for which you have to pay double the price already Insignia 800M.Budżetówki grown in popularizing the IPS panels, which are well placed in terms of mapping color display, minimizing the occurrence of image degradation caused by the change of angles. This panel also has a 800M Insignia. Viewing photos or watching movies will be very pleasant, the display itself also doing well with a reproduction of the palette, but was clearly calibrated color toward the cold. The panel recognizes up to 5 points touch, and during testing I did not have any problems with the operation of the machine. All commands issued by me are properly interpreted – in this field do not have any objections. backlight strength measurements showed a maximum value of up to 285 cd / m2, and so there can be no assurance that the image will be readable in bright sunlight. Usually – in the absence of good polarization layer – only barrier exceeding brightness of 350 cd / m2 is relatively good readability of the screen. With that met during the testing Kiano Intelect 8 3G (354 cd / m2) or MODECOM 8025 IPS-and IB (378 cd / m2). The minimum value of 25 cd / 2 is not the lowest – the light emitted by the screen is not hurt us firmly, but in this case it is assumed that the lower the minimum illumination intensity, the better.
The tablet has a built-in WLAN operating in one area. For the duration of the test shall not signed up any problems with your Internet connection, I had a trouble with range. At the time I noticed more exhaustive tests for the fact that when holding the tablet in a horizontal position, our hands pick from about 10 to 15 dbm strength of the received signal from the router. Going through manic test scenarios, the tablet has lost connection to the router, when both devices were on two different floors – it's a negative phenomenon, but also often found in this price segment. In the second scenario, which simulates the use of the internet in the apartment (and router and tablet are located on the same floor) we had no problems with access to the Web. [Test slug = "wifi-Tablet" axis = "negative" product_id = "20192"] The GPS signal receiver need up to 40 seconds to find on the map the location of the tablet. An example of the track log recorded by the device is actually similar to the route traveled by me. We can discern that in some places the record is moved a few feet from my route. After all – I have no major complaints.Built-in modem supports a network of Aero 2, but replacing the SIM card requires you to restart your tablet. We can also be made with 800M phone call or send and receive text messages. Dialer is convenient, as well as a system keypad for creating SMS. The tablet has 8GB of its own, an external card expandable up to 128 GB (we used our editorial Kingston 128GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-1 Class10 ). You can move applications to external storage, but is transported only .apk file (tested on the game Asphalt 8). Insignia 800M excels at handling accessories OTG – not only recognize the FAT32 file system, but also NTFS. As a result, we do not have to worry about especially how strapped pendrive – usually everyone should be recognized and handled by the tablet. Also connected the external drives, but only the external power source having been recognized. Also worked both HUB-y – passive and active – can also connect a variety of peripherals such as mouse and keyboard.
The tablet has a built-in lithium-ion dip with a capacity of 3800 mAh, the full cycle charge lasts over two hours. I have no complaints against the same battery capacity, because I know from experience that the tablet mounted in a media library system is energy efficient. Although there are 8-inch Tablet PC models that have a more comprehensive battery, but still Insignia 800M, after reducing the screen brightness of 120 cd / m2, good mileage recorded on a single charge, because it allowed for nearly seven hours surfing the web, using Wi-Fi (6 hours when using 3G) or 7.5 hours. watching movies with disabled WLAN card. It's good results, translating into satisfactory waveforms in practical use. We should not run out of energy after a day of using the tablet, if not we look the more demanding games or applications. [Test slug = "battery" virtual="filmy-wifi-off,internet-wifi,internet-3g,komunikator-wifi,ladowanie-ac,pcmark-work,batteryxprt-online,batteryxprt-onffline" product_id = "20192"] It should also look at how Insignia 800M compares to the competition. Registered battery operating times are comparable to Kiano Intelect 8-based 3G Intel Atom Z2580, whereby it should be noted that the model competition received more cell (4700 mAh). Much more interesting are presented in comparison GOCLEVER-a Lenovo A5500-H, as both devices have the same layout media library. We were unable to definitively determine the capacity of the built-in battery Lenovo, but this tablet coped much better in our tests, allowing for more than 12 hours. watching movies and 8 pm. use of the Internet using Wi-Fi.
PERFORMANCE / FUNCTIONALITY
Manufacturer reached for honest, albeit old already MediaTek 8382 with a 4-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and a graphics chip Mali-400MP and RAM of 1 GB. Such equipment is objectionable because it is already available in the factories of the successor of this system – MT8392. There are also Intel processors that excel well as synthetic tests, as well as in everyday work. Obviously, the advantages of the nested arrangement remain unchanged. That's an average of efficient unit for basic applications such as web browsing, and support for less demanding applications. When you buy a tablet should take into account whether the model is the future. Web sites are becoming more and richer in content, and at the same time more and more challenging to devices that display them.Our synthetic benchmarks show that the 8382 performs worse than the weaker Intel Atom chips Z25xx family. Using the example of 3G Kiano Intelect 8 we can see that in the test T-Rex 3.0 Onscreen Intel gained 8.1 frames / sec., And Insignia 800M – 5.5 fps. / Sec. It should also compare the results of the test T-Rex 3.0 Offscreen gained by the tested model and Allview Viva H7 Xtreme, which works on MT8392 – the first of which won 3.6 fps. / Sa second 10 frames / sec.. MT8392 better falls in terms of playing video files, because doing even 4K movies where compatibility Insignia 800M file ends at 1080p. checked, as the tablet can cope with three popular and demanding games. Asphalt 8: Airborne suggested to play with graphics set at the secondary level, where we get a smoother gameplay on low detail – then increases the amount of FPS and do not manifest themselves gently trim, which I noticed on the higher settings. Dead Trigger 2 suggests at once the lowest detail and with their set plays only moments gently jams. Real Racing 3, in turn, typically runs smoothly, but we can see the occasional trim and FPS drops.

As befits a budget tablet, the Insignia 800M works based on unmodified in any way Android 4.4.2. The manufacturer does not interfere or graphics overlay, nor implemented the custom applications. The equipment is running well, although there are some moments when the transition animations are rather sluggish. We will have to get used to the fact that the tablet after pressing the button does not respond immediately wake and look for the program in the grid application itself sometimes slow down scrolling particular its pages. This is probably a question of poor optimization of the system and it is difficult to predict how the tablet will behave after a few months of operation.system update enthusiasts will enjoy the fact that among the programs found the relevant application, which will carry out the upgrade Android OTA (Over The Air, that is, without the need for wires). It is not known whether in fact and which version of the tablet will Recently updated. In addition, we find a few items that are generally in stock Google, for example. File Explorer.
SUMMARY / EVALUATION / OPINION
Insignia GOCLEVER 800M has not gone to the list of my favorites, because anything in particular stands out. Although it is a cheap tablet, but at the same time does not offer anything that would make it competitive. I can not help feeling that the manufacturer has focused more on the model of Windows, a variant equipped with Android treated with neglect. He reached for a reliable processor, has made 3G phone and stereo speakers to tempt potential consumer.If someone is looking for your tablet at a low price with good mileage on the battery and does not have great expectations of such equipment, GOCLEVER Insignia 800M is a position worth considering. Speaks in his favor IPS matrix with good viewing angles and strongly enhanced wireless communication facilities. However, if you are looking for the tablet for your baby, you want to look for alternatives, because the younger the user desires time to reach for a game from the store Google Play, and in this field 800M Insignia has less to offer.
