Series:

The Toshiba Encore is Toshiba's first 8 inch Windows tablet and it's priced to fit within tight budgets. This device reportedly benefits from Toshiba working with Microsoft to ensure that the tablet is optimized to work with Windows 8.1. It was also designed to be optimal for Skype use with dual-array microphones and noise reduction. One attractive prospect is the free Office Home & Student 2013 that comes pre-installed. All these factors considered, along with the 8 MP camera and a good selection of ports mean that this device is versatile and can be used for a variety of business, productivity and entertainment uses. For those who find the 8 inch screen a bit too small for word processing, the micro HDMI port will allow users to hook this device up to an external monitor.

Powered by Intel's latest quad core Bay Trail Atom processor - on paper- this looks like a potentially great device. With a standard 1280 x 800 IPS multitouch display and 32GB of storage (which can be expanded with a microSD) there's nothing spectacularly different about this device when compared to other similar machines, other than the updated processor, but it is cheaper than most others. Weighing in at 0.48 kg, the 8 incher should work well for one handed use. The design is a low key affair in matte silver. For those in the market for a pocket sized Windows 8.1 device, the Toshiba Encore could be the one to beat.

Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail):

Integrated GPU for tablet and notebook Bay Trail SoCs. Based on the Ivy Bridge GPU with four Execution Units and support for DirectX 11.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).
Z3735F: SoC with an integrated quad-core Atom processor clocked up to 1.83 GHz, an Intel HD Graphics GPU and a single channel DDR3L-RS-1333 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
10.1":

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

0.55 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Toshiba: Toshiba Corporation is a multinational conglomerate manufacturing company, headquartered in Japan. The company's main business is in Infrastructure, Consumer Products, and Electronic devices and components. Toshiba-made Semiconductors are among the Worldwide Top 20 Semiconductor Sales Leaders. Toshiba is one of the biggest international notebook-manufacturer. There exist many reviews for Toshiba models.

Toshiba is not present in the smartphone sector. As laptop manufacturer, Toshiba still had 6.6% of world market share in 2014. However it fell to only 1.6% in 2016, making only for the 8th place.


85.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
