Design and Procurement
charger, cable USB, as well as instructions and warranty card. That’s all that was found in a small white box. Nothing more, as in most modern devices. Well, the tablet itself, of course.
Instead of the usual black plastic is dark gray soft-touch. In a nice touch, which is important, because the unit often have to keep both hands. However, the material is not easily soiled and very careful use covered visible scratches and scuffs. Thickness noticeable – 10.1 mm, weighs 510 grams, but the framework and the overall dimensions relatively small (251 x 145 x 10.1 mm). Pleases general brevity of the device – no shiny frames “golden” or red insert “type for gamers.” However, someone on the contrary such a design may seem mundane.
On the front side almost all the space given to the display above it barely noticeable eye front camera. Behind logos, icons, buttons, ports, camera (without flash) and speakers. They are loud, the sound is solid, but a large plate they should be placed on different sides, to improve the stereo. And the logo too big.
To access the SIM slot and microSD Card uses a small compartment under the removable cover. Fortunately, no trays and paper clips: to hook, remove the cover and set. Replacing or installing cards is fast, and thanks to the monolithic structure is non-removable battery (main cover is not cranky).
The Irbis TZ94 panel uses IPS-average quality. Colors are nice. There is no extra saturation or inherent budgetary IPS tarnish the viewing angles are quite good. Outdoor display behaves well, at maximum brightness of the image is visible even on a sunny day. Resolution 1280 x 800 pixels at a diagonal of 9.6 “(aspect ratio – 16:10) provides a pixel density of 157 ppi. Pixels can be if you want to see and would like to see here is more the resolution, however, this would inevitably lead to an increase in the load on the hardware and increased energy consumption. So in this case, the manufacturer was right. Not what we lag and Jordania.
To experience the benefits of 64 -bit processor can only be fresh version of Android, so the manufacturer has chosen for the tablet Android 5.1 Lollipop (in fact, the companies and the choice is not present: all the latest processors support 64-bit computing, and use an older version of Android gadgets in the end of 2015 – moveton). Whatever it was, this “candy” came to mobile devices in the summer of 2015, and the majority of the budget tablets are still available with the version of Android 4.4 or 4.2 (shame on them!). It is noteworthy that in Android 5.1 have been fixed important security issues, updated blind notifications and improved support for devices with two SIM-cards. Some useful changes will be available in Android 5.0 – improved performance, updated interface and a number of useful things. For example, an incoming call or a message pops up a small window on the edge of the screen, so that an unnecessary call can be reset, and the active applications do not come out.
Part of the internal memory is occupied by preinstalled programs: Yandex with its shop, official clients Classmates and VKontakte, anti-virus and a special application for students and teachers browser Alphabet, which helped in the development of Intel®. The shell is almost untouched by the manufacturer, significant improvements in the settings there.
Manufacturers almost always confer plates very simple camera module (shoot on the plates is not very convenient and handy user probably have a smartphone with a good camera). That Irbis TZ94 is no exception. Its 0.3-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera suitable except for video.
tests and performance
For tablet Irbis TZ94 chosen one of the most economical options – Intel® Atom ™ X3-C3230RK (4 x 1.1 GHz, 64-bit). It allows you to run any modern games, but run – not to ensure a comfortable gameplay. With a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels filling cope passable – in Unkilled Asphalt 8 and you can play with minimal graphics, while the average will brake. At the same time watching movies, toys simple and easy task is not satisfactory, but in connection with 1 GB of RAM may be a delay in switching tasks. Built-in storage device has a capacity of 8 GB, of which remain free at least 4. Such reserves will last only the most conservative users, which means that the tablet is useful fast memory card (supports microSD of up to 32 GB)
The tablet is equipped with a non-removable battery 4000 mAh on. For a larger display is far from a record value, but the overall level of autonomy sufficient. So hang in the network can be more than 9 hours on a single charge, the movie will watch 6-7 hours, and the game will be able to drive about 3-4 hours. The same device operates in car navigation.
Dual SIM working in active standby mode. And since there is only one radio, during the second call Simca temporarily loses connection. It is important to remember that the earpiece is not here, so need a headset for conversations. Suitable and wired and wireless version.
The plate Irbis TZ94 out very balanced device. Use high-quality display, nice body materials, with respect to a fresh Android 5.1 Lollipop. Alas, the cameras have brought, and performance is not enough for serious toys, but for such a modest price (remember 7990 rubles), the device is sure to find their customers.
