The Alfawise Tab is really a re-branded JDTAB J01 from JD.com, but under the Alfawise branding, it’s almost half the price. This premium Android 6.0 tablet has a great build quality, it’s slim & light with an excellent full metal unibody finish and for the price offers a lot. A fully laminated 4:3 aspect ratio screen, a 326 PPI IPS display with 440 lux peak brightness. There is also an ambient light sensor on-board to automatically control that screen brightness for you. Premium AKG tuned speakers, a large 6400mah battery that’s good for over 10 hours of continuous web use.

- 7.9″ 1536 x 2048 IPS screen is 440 lux bright with a sharp pixel density of 326. This is the same screen as the iPad Mini 4S

There really isn’t much to dislike about this tablet especially considering its low price tag of $159.99. It’s not perfect, running Android 6.0 means it’s outdated and unlikely to ever get any official updates. It also has no MicroSD slot or HDMI out which I would prefer to have on all my tablets.
Besides that, you can’t really go wrong with this one.
