Appearance, materials, controls, assembly

Outwardly, Explay sQuad 9.71 is very reminiscent of the iPad 3: aluminum back, rounded edges, even the buttons look similar. The entire front side is occupied by a 9.7 '' screen, above which is the front camera eye. The back of the device is made entirely of aluminum, with the exception of the plastic insert on top.

At the top end there are all the connectors: a microSD card slot, a connector for your own charger, microUSB, a “Reset” hole, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a built-in microphone hole and a power button.

“On the right is the volume rocker and the power button of the device,” I wanted to write. However, this is not the case, the rocker is the paired "Menu" and "Back" buttons, and the separate button is the "Home". Why it was necessary to use such a strange placement of buttons is not clear. Moreover, the volume control was moved to the on-screen buttons!

The display causes twofold impressions: on the one hand, high definition pleases the eye, especially when reading, and on the other hand, the number of programs optimized for this resolution is incredibly small. But what to say about programs, even if some icons on the desktop do not look clear enough.

There are no complaints about the viewing angles, they are almost maximum.

The brightness of the device is at an average level, for example, when working indoors, it is comfortable to use 90-100% brightness. In public transport, it is already a little lacking. And in the sun the screen is almost completely blind.

Operating system

The tablet is based on Android 4.1.1 without any add-ons from the company. You can read a detailed review of this OS version at the link below.

An interesting thing worth noting is the adaptation of the launcher to a large resolution - usually https://cars45.com/listing/peugeot/206 the icons look very small, here (apparently) scaling was used.

Also, on-screen buttons for volume control and taking a screenshot appeared in the status bar.

By the way, the tablet is already rooted, so you can easily restore your backup from a previous device using Titanium Backup.

Performance

The tablet has a quad-core Alwinner A31 processor operating at a frequency of 1.4 GHz (although Antutu for some reason showed an operating frequency of 1 GHz), a video accelerator - PowerVR SGX 544MP, RAM - 2 GB, internal storage capacity - 16 GB (11 GB available to the user), memory cards up to 32 GB are supported.

I don't know why the tablet works like this, either due to the lack of optimization for such a resolution, or something else, but it just so happens that it sometimes "stumbles" even on simple actions like scrolling through desktops.< /p>

Offline work

The tablet has a 9000 mAh non-removable lithium-polymer battery. These are standard numbers for devices of this class.

In reading mode, the tablet lasted 7 hours (brightness 10%, airplane mode on).

During HD video playback, the battery lasted approximately five hours.

Standby mode with Wi-Fi on drained the tablet in about 20 days.

Camera

The device has two cameras: a 1.9 MP front camera and a 5 MP main camera. You can’t tell much about the main camera, it has autofocus, but the pictures are still very mediocre. The video is written in a maximum resolution of 1280x720 pixels.

Competitors

Ainol Novo 9 Spark. A complete clone in terms of characteristics, with the exception of a different processor. The average cost is 8,500 rubles.

Perfeo 9726RT. Another practically "clone", but with a dual-core processor.

teXet TM-9751HD. Also an almost complete copy in terms of characteristics and price.

Now all budget tablets with a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels are very similar to each other: all have an aluminum body, all have insufficient screen brightness, all have lags in the interface. Explay sQuad 9.71 is no exception.

Leaving those brakes aside, the overall result is a decent tablet with a high-res screen, powerful enough for today's toys and great for reading.

Explay sQuad 9.71 tablet review

It's been a long time since the release of the iPad 3, and its screen is still considered one of the best among tablets. Of course, Chinese manufacturers and B-brands could not ignore the high resolution of the Retina display in the iPad 3/4 and began to produce similar solutions, but at a much lower price tag.

Packages

  • Tablet
  • Pouch-pocket
  • Charger
  • USB-OTG cable
  • PC cable
  • Wired stereo headset

The tablet comes in a simple cardboard box, on which the inscription "Ecopack" flaunts, meaning the packaging is made from recycled materials. By the way, this is not the first Explay tablet in the Ecopack package.

The cover deserves a special mention: the tablet hides entirely in it, which prevents its contamination and the possibility of damage.

Moreover, the volume control was moved to the on-screen buttons!

The place for the speaker was found at the bottom of the back. It has an average power, there is no volume margin.

There are no complaints about the assembly of the tablet, it is tightly knocked down, there are no backlashes and squeaks.

Dimensions

The dimensions of Explay sQuad 9.71 are standard for such devices. See for yourself.

  • Apple iPad 4 - 241.2 x 185.7 x 9.4 mm, 652 grams
  • Ainol Novo 9 Spark - 241 x 185.6 x 10.6 mm, 642 grams
  • Samsung Google Nexus 10 - 263.9 x 177.6 x 8.9 mm, 603 grams
  • Asus Google Nexus 7 - 198.5 x 120 x 10.5 mm, 340 grams
  • Explay sQuad 9.71 - 241 x 185.4 x 9.7 mm, weight 676 grams

It is convenient to hold the tablet with two hands, but it is uncomfortable to read or watch a video for a long time while holding it on weight.

Screen

The tablet has a 9.7'' display with a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels. Matrix type - TFT-IPS. Supports "multi-touch" up to ten simultaneous touches. The screen is covered with protective glass without an oleophobic coating, because of this, when using gestures, the finger seems to get stuck, and fingerprints are hard to erase.

The display causes twofold impressions: on the one hand, high definition pleases the eye, especially when reading, and on the other hand, the number of programs optimized for this resolution is incredibly small. But what to say about programs, even if some icons on the desktop do not look clear enough.

And it would seem that with such characteristics, all functions in the tablet should work perfectly fast, but, unfortunately, this is not the case. For example, desktops scroll through with delays, the same applies to the application menu (third-party launchers like Nova Launcher do not solve the problem), sometimes the tablet may just “think” for a couple of seconds.

As for games, the top N.O.V.A 3 and NFS: Most Wanted are on the tablet with minimal delays that do not interfere with the game process. By the way, the device has a very sensitive accelerometer

I would rate the work of the browser as a "four". In most cases, there are no complaints about it, but sometimes there are also delays when paging.

The front camera supports Skype video calls, the image quality is on par with other Android tablets.

Interfaces

Wi-Fi (b/g/n) - initially, when connected to the network, the tablet had a very low speed. It turned out that this happens when using certain types of encryption (WPA2, for example). When changing the encryption, the problem disappeared. As for the reception range, it is very small, it happened that the tablet showed three or four divisions out of five, even if it was in the same room as the router.

Conclusion

The cost of the device varies from 8,600 to 10,000 rubles, depending on the store. For this money, you get a tablet with a good screen (there is only one complaint about the quality of the screen - insufficient maximum brightness), a nice aluminum case and a large bundle. Disadvantages: incomprehensible slowdowns in the menu and launcher and possible problems with Wi-Fi.
