Alldocube X Tablet Review

Samsung AMOLED for cheap. How much tablet can $270 buy you? The Alldocube integrates a fair number of high-end features not normally found on budget models like a fingerprint reader, very thin chassis, and 2560 x 1600 resolution AMOLED touchscreen. This is one of the better tablets available in its price range so long as users can look past the short battery life and inaccurate colors.

The Alldocube X started life as an Indiegogo project early last year and — unlike many other crowd-funded products — it managed to ship to consumers as originally promised. The tablet is notable for its mid-range $270 USD price while carrying high-end features like a 2560 x 1600 resolution AMOLED panel and fingerprint reader not normally found inexpensive alternatives. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, for example, carries the same AMOLED display for a whopping $650 USD.

Direct competitors to the 10.5-inch Alldocube X are numerous including the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4Huawei MediaPad T5 liteSamsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5Acer Iconia Tab 10, and the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus to name a few. We'll be comparing it to models from veteran OEMs to see how it stacks up against more popular alternatives.

Case

It's hard to not comment on the compact size of the tablet when first picking it up. The device is smaller than the Surface Go in all three dimensions while offering a slightly larger screen in the process. Its bezels are thus very narrow even when considering competitors costing more than twice the price of the Alldocube.

In terms of design, the metal unibody chassis is completely smooth along the matte back and edges while being excellent at hiding fingerprints. The edge-to-edge front glass and sharper corners give the system a high-end look compared to the rounder Surface Go or Galaxy Tab S4. As nice as it may be to hold, the Alldocube is more fragile and prone to scratches and damage. For example, attempting to twist the device with low-medium force results in some slight but audible creaking.

Build quality is imperfect on our test unit. The chrome-cut perimeter should be smooth all around when gliding a finger across, but there are visible scratches and tangible bumps that mar the otherwise sleek and super-thin design.

Connectivity

The tablet integrates USB Type-C, 3.5 mm earphones, and a MicroSD reader. We're able to connect devices like mice and keyboards with an appropriate adapter without any issues.

There are no POGO pins for attaching keyboards or other accessories unlike on the Galaxy Tab S4.

Communication and GPS

GPS Test can detect no location services
GPS Test can detect no location services

We experienced no issues when connected to an 802.11ac network. While transmit rates are slower than the radios on pricier tablets, this had no performance impact when video streaming or browsing. Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 is available for paring wireless devices.

The GPS appears to be non-functional on our test unit. Indeed, the official product spec sheet does not list any GPS features.

Fingerprint Reader

The side fingerprint reader works reliably with little delay. Its main issue is instead related to positioning rather than performance. Picking up the tablet in any other orientation other than landscape mode will make the fingerprint reader clunky to use.

Cameras

Both the front and rear cameras are 8 MP each. Like essentially all budget tablets, however, camera quality is poor. Pictures are grainy and easily overexposed with shallower colors and lost details.

Accessories and Warranty

Included extras are an AC adapter and a USB Type-A to Type-C cable. We're unable to find any official warranty information on the official website, but the service center is based in China meaning that any returns made overseas will likely take longer than usual. Please see our Guarantees, Return policies and Warranties article for country-specific information.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Touch-typing on the 10-point capacitive screen is made more difficult by the lack of any haptic feedback. Even the much cheaper Chuwi HiPad includes vibration. Aside from this small detail, the touchscreen is precise with no inaccurate input occurrences. With that said, the large screen and narrow bezels make certain keys difficult to reach no matter the orientation.

Active pen does not appear to be supported.

The AMOLED touchscreen is the highlight and selling point of the Alldocube X. Its high resolution, dense PPI, and OLED panel are normally reserved for costlier tablets well above the $250 range. Black-white response times are insanely fast for almost no ghosting while contrast ratio is essentially infinite with no backlight bleeding due to the panel technology. The thin glass, vibrant colors, and crisp text give the impression that this tablet is worth more than it really is. The Samsung panel in use here appears to be the exact same panel as found on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4.

There are some noteworthy faults to the display. Subjectively, colors appear to be inaccurate and overly saturated even for a budget tablet. Colors look poorly balanced at first glance which is a shame since OLED technology is technically capable of very accurate colors. The maximum brightness of just under 300 nits is also mediocre as it is half as bright as the iPad Pro 10.5 and Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5.

We are able to detect pulse-width modulation at brightness levels below 75 percent. Its frequency of  238 Hz is low enough that users sensitive to onscreen flickering may want to avoid using this tablet for long periods.

* ... smaller is better

Measurements with our X-Rite colorimeter reveal both an accurate grayscale and an inaccurate color profile to confirm our suspicions above. Red and green colors in particular are represented more poorly than other tested colors across all saturation levels. Thus, while color temperature is very good for a budget tablet, actual color accuracy is not up to par for overall mixed results.

Fortunately, the below average color accuracy does not impact multimedia or gaming very much. Colorful, stylized games in particular tend to pop and look brighter when color saturation is high.

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
3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.3 ms rise
↘ 1.7 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.5 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 detected 238.1 Hz ≤ 75 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 238.1 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 75 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 238.1 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9331 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Viewing angles are wider than a typical IPS panel with no major discoloration or contrast changes from extreme angles. Outdoor visibility is limited to areas with lots of shade as the backlight is dimmer than most other tablets. The brighter Galaxy Tab S4 display does a much better job with the same panel technology in this regard.

Performance

The Mediatek MT8176 is a mid-range but uncommon hexa-core SoC. Its 28 nm manufacturing technology is ancient in today's world of flagships where <10 nm chips are becoming common. Nonetheless, Geekbench scores show the MediaTek SoC to be comparable to the mid-range 14 nm Snapdragon 625. Browser-based benchmarks like Octane score highly relative to what we would've expected from this CPU. Its Jetstream score, for example, is 80 percent higher than the MediaPad M5 lite even though their SoCs perform somewhat similarly in GeekBench.

Subjectively, system performance is smoother than many cheaper tablets like the Chuwi HiPad but with more frame skips and latency than the pricier iPad Pro 10.5. This becomes particularly noticeable when scrolling through long web pages, multi-tasking, or waking from sleep. In other words, system performance is typical of a mid-range Android tablet.

Storage Devices

Performance from the 64 GB eMMC is average at best when compared to other eMMC and UHS solutions on other tablets. Random read and write rates of small 4 KB blocks are particularly slow at about 12 MB/s each whereas the Huawei MediaPad T5 10 clocks in at 76 MB/s in the same AndroBench benchmark. Transfer rates from the MicroSD card reader are at least comparable to the card readers on competitors.

Games

The PowerVR GX6250 is a budget GPU also found on the Amazon Fire HD 10 and Acer Iconia Tab 10. It's able to run demanding games like Asphalt 9 adequately between 30 and 60 FPS. There is very noticeable aliasing during gameplay since the game is not running at the high native resolution of the tablet. Less demanding sprite-based games will not have this issue and are a better fit for the Alldocube.

Temperature

Surface temperatures are warmer on the right half of the tablet closer to the USB port. We are able to record a hot spot of 38 C when running very high loads compared to 33 C and 41 C on the MediaPad T5 10 and iPad Pro 10.5, respectively. We never found the unit to be uncomfortable to hold even if gaming.

Speakers

The stereo speakers are sufficiently loud at maximum volume with no chassis reverberations. Bass reproduction is poor as illustrated by our pink noise measurements below. Alldocube isn't trying to break any ground here so the audio holds nothing surprising in relation to other mid-range Android tablets.

Power Consumption

Cycling power consumption when under very heavy processor stress
Cycling power consumption when under very heavy processor stress

Idling on the Home screen demands anywhere between 3.8 W and 6.3 W on average depending on the brightness level compared to just 1.7 W to 4.3 W on the more efficient Galaxy Tab S4. When video streaming browsing, expect a power demand of about 7.4 W.

Power consumption behavior is strange and even abnormal in some cases. For example, the tablet consumes more power when turned off than when on standby (2.7 W vs. 0.45 W) even after double-checking. Consumption also cycles between 1.1 W and 7.6 W when under extreme loads (CPU stress) to suggest some sort of throttling in place. This fortunately has no impact during day-to-day use.

The included 12 V/1.5 A AC adapter can also be used to charge other USB Type-C devices.

Battery Life

Runtimes are below average for a tablet despite its sizable 8000 mAh battery. We are only able to record a real-world WLAN runtime of just under 4.5 hours compared to twice that or more on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 or Huawei MediaPad T5 10. The strange power consumption behavior we noted above may the culprit as the 30 Wh internal battery is similar in capacity to the iPad Pro 10.5 even though the apple can last almost three times longer when subjected to similar WLAN conditions.

In review: Alldocube X. Test model provided by Alldocube
In review: Alldocube X. Test model provided by Alldocube

Alldocube set out to create a $270 tablet with the same high quality 10.5-inch AMOLED display as the $650 Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. From this perspective, the Alldocube X is a success as its display is superior to most other tablets with IPS panels in its price range. The fast response times, deep blacks, fingerprint reader, and thin narrow bezel design are rarities for its category.

Dig a little deeper and the flaws begin to surface. Camera quality is mediocre at best, the screen could be brighter when outdoors, battery life is below average, the light chassis is fragile, and colors are noticeably inaccurate by default. These characteristics are common on budget tablets retailing in the $200 to $300 range.

The Alldocube X is a tablet of extremes. Its design and display could easily pass on a model retailing for twice the asking price, but many of its other qualities are more representative of the budget-mainstream category. It's an interesting balance that may appeal to users who are intrigued by its impressive first impressions and are not turned away by its aforementioned disadvantages.

A Galaxy Tab S4 experience for less than half the price. The Alldocube X had a lofty goal and it somehow manages to nail it on a few aspects. For every flagship feature it gets right, however, there is another characteristic elsewhere bringing it all down to the budget-mainstream level.

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.
