Reviews for the Alcatel Essential 8

70% Alcatel Essential 8-inch tablet for Telstra – Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
If it were for myself, yes I’d spend a little more and get something better. I’ve still got a Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact that runs rings around this one from Alcatel, but it’s easily three times the cost (if you can even buy one anymore). However, for someone who’s not looking for too much, and who wants to read and browse on a slightly larger screen, this is a no brainer.

Imagination PowerVR GE8100: Integrated graphics card for entry level ARM SoCs. Smallest variant of the Series8XE series of GPUs (GE8xx0) with a peak fillrate of only one pixel/clock. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is typical for smartphones.


Alcatel:

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
