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.

Alfawise Tab Spec:

  • 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
  • 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, plenty of RAM for multitasking.
  • GPS module
  • Quad-core MediaTek 8173
  • PowerVR GX6250 GPU
  • Only 7.5mm slim & 379 grams
  • Fully metal build
  • 8MP rear and 5MP front camera
  • Capacitive menu buttons

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 It’s not perfect, running Android 6.0 means it’s outdated and unlikely to ever get any official updates.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.
