Hands-On With the Teclast T10

Hands-On With the Teclast T10

Update: Gearbest has this on sale again for $199, this is limited to the first 500 units. The promotion is over here.

This is the latest from Teclast, the Master T10 their new Android flagship tablet. It’s an all metal 10.1″ tablet with a Sharp 2560 x 1600 fully laminated panel, this panel looks great and overall the build quality great, no real flex or creaks in this design. The panel is bright, with deep blacks and looks very sharp, you can really see individual pixels. The tablet runs Android 7.0 and is powered by a hexa-core MTK8176 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB eMMC. There is a MicroSD tray for storage expansion. The T10 is currently $219 here with coupon teclastt10

Below is my first look, unboxing, and hands-on video:

First impressions:

  • Great build and screen
  • Android 7.0 ROM is light weight and fast. Plus most bloat can be removed.
  • Cameras seem a step up from the normal front 2MP and rear 5MP
  • Speakers are loud but distort a little at 100%
  • The port location is a little odd, HDMI and USB2 at the top of the tablet
  • Fingerprint reader location takes some time to get used to, unlock is around 2 seconds. So not the fastest.
  • Google Play is installed and works well
  • Antutu score is around 80,000
  • The charger is 12volts 1.5A max. So much faster than the typical 5V 2A
  • GPS works, but is a little slow at first and there is no compass function on the T10

  3. Anyone rooted this yet?

  4. How bad is GPS in real life?
    Hello owners. GPS functionality is mandatory for me. Can you please share your experiences. Thanks in forward.

  5. Hallo mein problem ist das er immer fehler mit android webview zeigt. Egal welche app ich starte immer selbe problem bitte hilfe sonst gute tablet

  6. Hi,

    I have received my T10 yesterday and it seems a very good table for the price.
    I have however a problem with the tablet encryption.
    The encryption was already done but it didn’t prompt for any pin at startup.
    First, tried to setup and request the pin at startup, but there is no option for that.
    Then, I made a reset but encryption is still on! This not make sense!
    Probably there is no encryption at all although the setting shows “Encrypted tablet”

    Has anyone tried to activate the encryption?

    Please someone give me feedback because by heads is around this issue for some hours with no apparent solution.

    Thank you.

    • Sounds like someone had the tablet before you and didn’t remove their account or unlink it before the reset. I would get in touch with the seller.

      • Really! I always thought that a Factory data reset did the work of decrypting any Android. I will contact the vendor. Even so I would like someone with the same tablet could do the test and try to encrypt/decrypt it.

  7. Hi, I bought this tablet, it’s arrived with a pre applicated plastic screen protector…it seems to me that the sensitivity of the touch it’s a little bit slow…my impression? maybe is the screen protector?

    • My unit’s fine. I think the screen is scratch resistant or at least feels like it. I took mine off in the end. No issues with touch.

    • I have a problem with the screen missing touches. Also when scrolling it’s stuttering when swiping with a finger on the screen. Its registering loads of touches rather than a swipe. Proper disappointing.

      • I got mine a few days ago and I’m seeing a lot less touch sensitivity than I would like. That and wifi reception is mediocre at best.

        On the other hand, the rest is great for the price and the screen is fabulous. Well worth the 5-6 week wait. At least I think so now that it’s over. 🙂

      • I have also similar problems with missing touches, and sometimes with the swipe. Otherwise this is great tablet. But there should be some solution for the touch problem, it is annoying.

  8. What’s the verdict on this from those that have one? Does it have decent battery life and performance? Thinking of getting one to replace my Mi Pad 3 – Play Services crashing 70 times a day takes its toll!

    • Nothing crashed on mine. Overall good tablet for this price. I have only one issue with microsd, but it’s not so big deal, because there are 64GB build in.

      IMHO, there is no better tablet than this in it’s price range.

  9. I just ordered one of these myself. Is there any word on accessories for this one? Specifically a decent magnetic keyboard would be lovely.

  10. HI Chris
    what about the ROM support
    I had a not so pleasant experience with a Teclast 98 (atom based) tablet years ago
    A bios update turned the camera upside down and the problem remained unsolved
    .
    Are they coming with a global stock rom? (without bloatware and strange lunchers)

    • It’s covered in the video, it’s stock no more heavy custom launchers anymore and all the bloatware can be removed apart from the security application.

  11. When can we expect more detailed reviews of this tablet?

    • Full review in about a week from now. I’m moving the studio and also want to use it for a good 3-4 days at least before I post my full review. These things take time… But so far it looks very decent for the price.

      • Yes, it’s really good tablet. I’m surprised how good it is for such low price. I received it recently and testing it right now.
        I’m just curious is there a real quick charge technology in it? Maybe you could test it in your upcoming review? Does it support other quick chargers? I’m asking, because I and some other reviewers didn’t get any charger at all. Just USB cable was in the box.

        • Did you order from Gearbest? I did and it seems they remove the charger from the box before shipping the tablet out. I opened a ticket with them and I also just asked the question on their product page if that’s really the case them taking out the charger.
          I ordered a quickcharger from Amazon that supports Mediatek’s quick charge technology, should be here in a few days.

          • Yes, I ordered from Gearbest. I also ordered additional charger as well.

            Overall everything is ok with this tablet except strange behavior with MicroSD card. I use Samsung EVO 10 class 64 GB card and tablet most of the time refuses to write files to it. After formatting it I can use it for a while but after some hours MicroSD card became not writable. I’m not sure is this problem only with this Samsung EVO 10 64GB card or with others too.

          • I just received my Teclast T10 from Gearbest without the charger. Did you get any response from Gearbest why they removed the charger from the box. And what replacement did you get from Amazon?

        • The charger I bought from Amazon charges the tablet in less than three hours from zero to 100% so that’s good enough. I am still trying to get Gearbest to send me the original charger, let’s see if I get anywhere with them.
          Haven’t tried a MicroSD card yet but the ROM definitely has some bugs, the Wifi doesn’t see my 5 GHZ Wifi even though it sees others around me and has no problem with the 2.4 GHZ one. Otherwise this is really a fine tablet so far, hope there’ll be some ROM development for it down the line.

          • Their stance is since they don’t list the charger on the product page you don’t get one.
            I asked them again why they take essential items like the quick-charger out of the factory box before sending out the tablet they sell for the full price (doesn’t matter if it’s pre-sale or flash sale nowhere do they state that you don’t get the full package) but I have yet to receive an answer to my question…
            The charger I bought is this one: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01N1EYLVB
            It works fine and like I stated it charges the tablet in about three hours.
            There’s another one that apparently does Quickcharge 3.0 and Pump Express 3.0:
            https://www.amazon.de/dp/B01KV3KA6E

  12. My Teclast ownership experience was not great I have ordered the Cube X5 4G!

    • It’s a pity that there is no new Cube = Alldocube with 10″ (and android 7.0)
      But it seems that patience….

  13. How is the wi-fi reception?

    • Seems good due to the plastic on the rear next to the cameras.

  14. Any silicone cases available for it yet?

  15. Looks pretty incredible for the price, think I’ll pick one up when it falls below $200usd

  16. Gorilla glass or similar protection?

    • Looks that way, but hard to tell. It certainly feels like tempered scratch resistant glass of some sort.

    • Of course no
      It simple brand,, and cheap
