JDTab J01 Review

Buy Now

The JDTab is a joint venture tablet from JD.com, Meizu (OS) LeEco (Apps), Foxconn (Production and assembly) and finally Harmon Kardon (audio) It’s powered by a MediaTek MTK MT8173 quad-core CPU with a max turbo of 2.0Ghz. Power VR GX6250 GPU and has 4GB of RAM. Storage sadly is only 64GB of eMMC spec, with approximately 54GB free. There is no microSD support on this tablet which is a real shame and a deal breaker for some of us out there. Other specs include large 6200mAh battery, Wireless AC dual band, BT 4.1 and a rear 8MP camera with front 5MP one.

The screen is a fully laminated 2048 x 1536 IPS panel (Aka retina screen according to Apple’s marketing machine) The max brightness of 450 lux is great and offers deep blacks and great contrast. With 324 PPI the screen is also very sharp.

The build quality is top notch on this tablet, metal alloy unibody housing and the finish is perfect. What looked to be a great little tablet is sadly let down by a poor GPU that just struggles with some demanding titles gaming like Modern Combat 5. The full video review is below with rating, pros and cons.
