The Alldocube M8 is a budget 8-inch Android tablet notable for its 16:10 display. The unit retails for just $125 to $150 USD to compete directly with other low-end models like the Lenovo Tab 4 8Huawei MediaPad M5 lite, and the Asus ZenPad 3 8.0.

More information can be found on the official M8 product page here. The unit is in stock on both Amazon and Aliexpress.

Case

The Alldocube M8 is slightly thicker and heavier than many other 8-inch tablets with the exception of the Amazon Fire HD 8 2018. On the plus side, the chassis feels slightly stronger and more rigid as a result. Pricier, thinner tablets with larger screens like the Alldocube X can actually feel more fragile than the M8. Attempting to twist the unit results in only slight flexing and creaking.

Connectivity

Our T801 SKU omits 4G LTE and an SD card reader for a cheaper price in contrast to the T806 SKU. The tablet still relies on micro-USB for charging and data.

Communication

Wireless is up to 1x1 802.11ac with integrated Bluetooth 4.2. Maximum transfer rate is still less than half that of the Apple iPad 6. We otherwise didn't experience any connectivity issues during our time with the unit.

Cameras

The rear 5 MP and front 2 MP cameras hold nothing special. Quality is very poor not unlike your typical budget tablet with overexposed pictures and muddy colors.

Accessories and Warranty

Included extras are a micro-USB cable, 10 W AC adapter (5 V/2 A), and the usual paperwork.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies, but the buyer will likely have to pay for overseas shipping.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Typing is generally smooth without any major or uneven input delays unless if too many active applications or tabs are running. For example, having both Chrome and a demanding game like Asphalt 9 running would increase typing delay. There is no haptic feedback, however, which would have improved tactility.

The glass multi-touch screen can recognize up to 10 simultaneous fingers.

Display

The 8-inch IPS display is dimmer than many other budget tablets including the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 and Amazon Fire HD 8 2018. The glass overlay is also quite thick resulting in some graininess and muted colors when compared to the crisper and cleaner display of an iPad. Contrast is otherwise average for its budget category.

Our test unit suffers from uneven backlight bleeding as shown below. It's noticeable when watching videos with black borders, but it's not severe enough to be overly distracting.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
28.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14.8 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 66 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (25.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.2 ms rise
↘ 18.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (40.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9868 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is poorer than other tablets and smartphones since the backlight is relatively weak. Glare will be present even when working under shade. Viewing angles are thankfully wide without any major color shifting when in the landscape or portrait orientations.

Performance

The MediaTek Helio X27 MT6797X is a mid-range deca-core SoC. While fairly uncommon, it can be found on some inexpensive Chinese tablets like the Chuwi HiPad or HiPad Plus. For what it's worth, GeekBench 4.3 Multi-Thread ranks it within 10 percent of the HiSilicon Kirin 659 and 2017 Snapdragon 835.

Subjectively, system performance is less than smooth. Frame skips are common and there are delays when multi-tasking between applications. This is nonetheless common amongst budget Android tablets and a major differentiator when compared to high-end alternatives.

Storage Devices

Sequential write rate is average for the budget category, but sequential read is slightly slower than expected at just 143 MB/s according to AndroBench. The OEM does not appear to offer any 64 GB SKUs and so users will have to make do with just 32 GB.

Games

The integrated ARM Mali T880 MP4 GPU is able to run demanding titles from the Play Store, albeit at limited frame rates and with blocky textures. Asphalt 9 in particular struggles to maintain stable frame rates for a somewhat poor gaming experience. Less demanding sprite-based titles like Plants vs. Zombies run without any issues.

Temperature

Surface temperatures are generally flat on both sides when idling on the Home screen. When under extreme loads, the top of the tablet can become as warm as 40 C as shown by the temperature maps below. Results are similar to what we found on the Snapdragon-powered Lenovo Tab 4 8. Even so, the tablet never becomes uncomfortable to hold since the concentrated hot spot can be easily avoided.

Speakers

The monaural speaker is louder than expected to make the tablet a good choice for video playback. Quality, on the other hand, is lacking especially in terms of bass. Our pink noise measurements show a drop at about 1000 Hz compared to 500 Hz on many laptops.

Power Consumption

The M8 is not very power efficient. Strangely, it still pulls about 2 W from the outlet when powered off or in Sleep mode even when the battery is fully charged. Consumption when idling on the Home screen is higher than most other tablets as well as shown by the table below. Watching a video draws about 6 W while full CPU utilization with the CPU Throttling Test app draws just over 11 W.

Battery Life

Runtimes from the 5500 mAh battery are slightly below average for a tablet possibly due to the higher-than-usual power consumption measured above. Expect a real-world WLAN runtime of about 7 hours compared to almost twice that on the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4.

Verdict

In review: Alldocube m8 tablet. Test model provided by Alldocube
In review: Alldocube m8 tablet. Test model provided by Alldocube

The strongest qualities of the Alldocube M8 are its relatively strong build and optional 4G LTE. The unit feels tougher than most in its price range since it is slightly thicker. We're more comfortable recommending the tablet for children or general family use since it can more likely survive the inevitable bumps and bruises compared to thinner or lighter alternatives.

Otherwise, the rest of the tablet is standard budget fare. The display is dimmer than average, battery life is unimpressive, cameras are lackluster, and performance is not perfectly smooth. Luxurious extras like NFC, IR remote, automatic brightness sensor, and USB Type-C are all omitted.

The Alldocube M8 works best as an at-home tablet or secondary tablet when on the road. While it gets the job done, it doesn't have the performance, brightness, storage, cameras, longevity, or features to replace a mid-range alternative or smartphone.

Allen Ngo - US Editor in Chief
After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
