I liked this solid unit although it seems to be exclusive to O2 and as I do not have an O2 SIM I could not test the various claims such as providing a ‘Hot Spot’ it worked well on my Wi-Fi and apart from the slow boot and shutdown I have no real complaints.

The Plus 10 is not a tablet-hybrid that will get the job done for everybody, especially those wanting a high-powered option. But if you're aiming to get a bit of work completed when away from your desk, or watch some videos when you have some time to spare, the Plus 10 is more than capable. Add to this its retail price of only R3 600 and it ticks many of the much needed boxes while ensuring your wallet does not take too much of a hit.

The Alcatel Plus 12’s slow CPU and slow storage make for an awful experience. Even for basic tablet use, websites take far too long to load. Using a large spreadsheet in Excel is a headache. It is supposed to be a simple, basic machine for low-end use, but nobody deserves this sort of slowness on a brand-new device. An iPad is cheaper and faster for tablet use and for laptop use, there’s plenty of sub-$500 laptops that are better than this. Spend a little extra money and get a Windows tablet with an i3 or i5 CPU, it’ll be well worth it.

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).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel HD Graphics (Cherry Trail): Integrated graphics card in the Cherry-Trail SoCs. Based on a Broadwell GPU (Intel Gen8) and supports DirectX 11.2. Depending on the SoC offers 12 or 16 EUs.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series.
Intel Atom x5:
Z8350: Soc with an integrated quad core Atom processor clocked at 1.44 - 1.92 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a dual channel LPDDR3-1600 memory controller.
Celeron N3350: Frugal dual-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.
