80% Gigaset QV830 review: A sterling budget Android tablet
Source: IT Pro Portal English
The Gigaset QV830 isn’t perfect - it’s not an iPad mini or Kindle Fire HDX rival - but that doesn’t matter. Gigaset isn’t trying to compete with those models. The QV830 is a £70 tablet at the moment - £70! - and to pull it up for not offering the same quality or performance as far more expensive alternatives would be unfair. For a budget device, it’s great.

70% How much tablet can you feasibly get for under £100?
Source: Techradar English
With a design and build that punches above its price-point and reasonable specification, the Gigaset QV830 is all the tablet you could possibly expect for £99, and actually surprises in a couple of regards. If you spend a little more, then there are more powerful tablets around, such as the Google Nexus 7, or more features to be had on the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7. However, if your budget is fixed, and you're not looking to play the latest and greatest games, then the larger (if lower res) screen and metallic feel might be enough to keep you content.

60% Gigaset QV830 review
Source: T3 English
How much should you expect from a £100 tablet? Cash-strapped people who want the style of an iPad mini for a fraction of the cost could do a lot worse than buying a Gigaset QV830. However, don’t think you’re getting everything an iPad – or even Nexus 7 – offers for less cash. Most of the specs are a year or two out of date and the Gigaset QV830’s performance is less than perfect. If you just want something to browse the web and play casual games on while lounging on the sofa, though, it’s a pretty great buy for the family. Ultra-budget tablets like this are far, far better than they used to be just a couple of years ago.

Gigaset QV1030

Gigaset is attempting to penetrate the emerging market for smartphones and tablets and hopefully become a sustainable competitor in the future. They released the Gigaset QV1030, which on paper seems really good, but only time tell on its performance.

The Gigaset QV1030 has a 10.1 inch screen, which is big enough that smaller fonts won’t seem like grains. Furthermore, with a 2560 by 1600 resolution, the screen will produce high quality images with full HD capabilities. Coupled with the wide viewing angle and bright colors, the Gigaset QV1030 provides an enjoyable viewing experience.

Sadly, although the Gigaset QV1030 comes with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities, it does not have any 3G or 4G LTE compatibility. But it does however, come with a 9000 mAh battery, which allows users to use it longer without recharging. The tablet has an internal storage of 16 GB, which can be topped up with an external microSD card.

The Gigaset QV1030 is really light, only weighing roughly 590 g, making it one of the lightest devices out in the market. In short, the Gigaset QV1030 is a really great tablet if you are not looking for a device with 3G or 4G LTE connectivity. It makes up for its lack of connectivity with great graphics and a lightweight body.
