Construction / quality

Big, bulky and heavy – this Basecore 10 in all its glory.

Overmax BaseCore 10 tablets belong to a segment that I call kanapowymi tablets. It's big, bulky and heavy. The design measures approximately 14 mm at its thickest point. That's more than most 10-inch tablets. Designers, however, have this idea – Restoring full-size USB port. It is however worth noting that the first glance looks decent. Profiled surfaces more attractive design. The effect of ruining some heavily lacquered finish.

The equipment is rigid, although the predominant plastics construction. The quality of the stands at an average level. The rear panel flexes slightly under pressure – like the front. Under the protective pane of the screen creates the effect of "hot tub". In addition, assembly lines are not equal to the entire length, and the lower side connecting the front and has a tendency to delaminate. The manufacturer's are fairly efficient although designers can cancel the inscription on the back 2.0 Mega kamerce. [Nggallery id = 320 template = techmaniak] Tablet offers a comfortable work. The screen does not resist the finger during operation, and the case does not heat up to temperatures that can be considered uncomfortable. Because of the perceived importance of the device, easiest to use out of it resting on your lap or table. Buttons and ports are concentrated in an unusual location – on the lower beam. We can find only two buttons. Volume control has been moved to the virtual interface on the system bar. The list of equipment you will find two webcams. Being arranged symmetrically in one corner of the screen. This is the standard unit for the budget segment. The front camera has a resolution of 0.3 megapixels and will conduct a video conference. The second camera offers a resolution of 2 megapixels and no AF module. In both cases, the shooting we rely on standard VGA. In addition, there will be two speakers located on the bottom.

Screen

Tablet is equipped with a TN matrix.

Tablet is equipped with a widescreen LCD screen, 10.1-inch diagonal and a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Like most of the matrix TN, offers a narrow range of useful angles (deformation colors and contrast is visible deviation in each direction), the other image parameters facing the average. Displayed content is clear and the colors slightly cooled.

The maximum brightness is 197 cd/m2 matrix (at 100-percent power backlight), which is a low figure. This means that a comfortable work will only be possible with the full force of the backlight. The uneven illumination up to 15%. Brightness can change smoothly over a wide range, and the lowest value is 22 cd/m2 (which means that at the lowest brightness comfort will be greatly reduced). The matrix does not flashes at no point, did not notice the discoloration and "dead pixels".

supports multi-touch screen with ten pressure points. Resolution of points is high. The sensor is well calibrated and do not get confused with the classic for Android gestures (movement, pinch, stretch, etc.) – even while charging the tablet. Touch is usually recognized without delay.

Equipment

Overmax BaseCore 10 is equipped with a full-size USB port.

The reason why the tablet has a robust design, among others, the presence of the full-size USB port. With it is connected directly to the device memory sticks and pointing devices. Tablet but did not detect the external drive when you connect a USB hub turned off. In addition, we rely on the following set of ports – power connector, microSD card slot, miniHDMI, miniUSB and 3.5mm mini-jack (to which we can hook headphones or speakers). For computer hardware is recognized as a mass storage.

In terms of wireless card you can count on WiFi and Bluetooth. During testing, the connection was stable, although the WiFi signal strength was low. From the Settings tab, you can require continuous operation even when the display is turned off. With support for external 3G modem can count on you mobile access to the Internet, the device can also easily configure the factory ready to work with the Aero 2. There I noted surges and data transfer interruptions resulting from hardware issues (function test based on the model Huawei E173-u2).

Battery

Overmax BaseCore 10 is equipped with a large capacity lithium-ion battery.

Tablet is equipped with integrated in the lithium-ion battery. It is characterized by a capacity 5000 mAh. The results of all the tests (with brightness set to 120 cd/m2, which represents approximately 56% of the maximum power backlight) I've included below. [Test slug = "battery" product_id = "18802"] This estimate battery performance may vary if you choose to operate at full power for the backlight. Tablet a high yield value. Even with WiFi turned on we can count on more than 9 hours watching movies, which is a result worthy of note here. Much worse falls device while connected to 3G.

Performance

Tablet offers a satisfactory liquidity and high functionality – both in everyday applications, such as in and games.

Tablet is built around a dual-core Rockchip RK3066 designed ARMv7 architecture. The computing unit has a nominal clock speed of 1.6 GHz. For each processor core carries two cores GPU Mali-400 MP4. The various processes and applications can take advantage of one gigabyte of DDR3 RAM. After deducting the fixed system of processes is around 600 MB. As a data warehouse, we can use 8 GB of memory in use – this last is divided into so-called. internal memory (1 GB) and memory storage (where we store our data). You can move applications from internal memory to memory storage. Of course, some storage space is already occupied by the factory configuration operating system and installed applications. [Nggallery id = 322 template = techmaniak] find the tablet version of Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean). Configuration component provides a smooth and stable operation. You can see small, sporadic downtime and frost formation in the screen – usually on application startup – but are reflected in the performance. Information about touch and gestures are processed without any noticeable delay. Dragging windows is done quickly. Tablet traditionally measured the performance with the help of three popular applications: AnTutu, An3DbenchXL and the latest benchmark from Futuremark – 3DMark . Results can be found below – all values ​​are in points, but the more points, the better. [Test slug = "antutu" product_id = "18802"] [test slug = "an3dbenchxl" product_id = "18802"] [test virtual = "3dmark-ice-storm-total, 3dmark-ice-storm-graphics, 3dmark-ice -storm-physics, 3dmark-ice-storm-extreme-total "slug =" 3dmark "product_id =" 18802 "] The vertical unit is a good tool for reading PDFs and web browsing, to write better rather use a horizontal layout – especially multidotyk that the hardware supports up to 10 points.

The successful tablet can be called universal. Equally well serve as a mobile music player, as well as console and a tool for editing documents. Supports most everyday applications, and allows you to view PDFs (including those "heavy", rich in multimedia elements). On board you will find a set of useful applications, so that we will not have to start visiting the Google Play platform. If, however, there'll bring graphically advanced games, we can count on smooth animations, and full of textures and models. The equipment runs without problems and support the Skype application, but does not use the full power of the speakers. Loading parties during web browsing is done with satisfactory liquidity, and this tablet has a factory default configuration supports Adobe Flash, and streaming audio and video (you checked the websites offering streaming video – for example, drhtv.com. en ). However there can be problems running the game based on the sofcie (tested based games Settlers Online ). I tested the media files with the following characteristics:
  • mkv 1080p h264; 40Mbps
  • mkv 1080p h264, 10Mbps, dts; subtitles
  • mp4, 720p, h264, 6Mbps, ac3;
  • mkv, 720p, h264, 3Mbps, vorbis, subtitles;
  • mkv, 720p, h264, 600kbps, aac / mp3.

Tablet without problems recreate those files – including those in high-speed (about 10, and even 40 mbps). It can therefore be successfully used as a mobile media player, especially since we can hook up via HDMI to a larger screen. I have not noticed any problems with either sound or with embedded subtitles.

Summary, evaluation and review

Overmax BaseCore 10 is a very good choice for those looking for a tablet to your home or work. The device can cope satisfactorily with applications for everyday use as well as when playing videos. Doubts arise only middle-class matrix TN, but we can always hook up the device to a larger screen via the HDMI port.
