Philips TLE821L tablet review

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the TLE821L is Philips' first tablet in years. A slightly strange decision is to release a “tablet” at the moment when there is a decline in demand for such gadgets. However, Philips is more visible: most likely, there are a certain number of fans of the company who would like to purchase a device that is reliable and familiar in terms of ergonomic design.

The tablet is equipped with two slots for nanoSIM-cards with support for 4G LTE, it has a speech speaker. In addition, TLE821L was equipped with a large 5000 mAh battery. That is, in fact, you have an overgrown phablet in front of you :)

Design, dimensions, controls

The tablet is made in a classic design with recognizable Philips colors: dark gray plastic inserts on the back and a light gray metal panel that is rough to the touch. Other devices of the company are decorated in approximately the same way.

The front panel is dark in color, protected by glass, with a film pasted on top. It can be removed if desired. After a couple of weeks of active use, there were no visible scratches or chips on the screen. The back cover also remained unscathed. I must say that the metal is strong enough and does not feel like a thin aluminum panel.

The side faces are even, closer to the front and back parts they have cuts with polishing.

Overall, the tablet feels like a solid gadget without any design issues.

At the top are: an indicator of missed events, a front camera, a proximity sensor (to be honest, they are rarely found in such devices), a light sensor, which is also good, a speaker (moderately loud, the sound is a bit boomy, you can hear it quite clearly).

On the lower end, on the left, there is a speakerphone; on the right, a microphone and a second speaker.

The power button and volume rocker are made of metal and are located on the right edge of the device. Easy to handle, soft, medium stroke.

On the left - a metal sled for two nano SIM cards or a microSD memory card instead of one of the SIM cards.

At the top are microUSB, 3.5 mm for connecting a headset and a hole, apparently, for a second microphone.

Display

This TLE821L model has an 8-inch screen. The matrix is ​​made using IPS technology, the resolution is 1280x800 pixels (WXGA, a little more than HD). Pixelation, of course, is noticeable, but for the purposes for which the tablet will be purchased, this is unlikely to be particularly critical.

The backlight brightness is about 300 units, the contrast ratio is about 750:1. For a tablet, these parameters are quite normal.

The viewing angles are maximum, the picture is not distorted under the tilt of the screen, neither violet nor yellow. Color rendition is natural. In the sun, the picture is difficult to read, in the shade everything is more or less normal.

The touchscreen supports up to five simultaneous touches.

Battery

The Philips tablet is equipped with a 5000 mAh non-removable battery. The manufacturer claims that the gadget works in video playback mode for 6 hours, and in music mode - up to 12 hours.

According to my data, the device plays video in MP4 HD format for just over 6 hours, and in game mode (simple) - about 4.5 hours. On average, you should count on 5-6 hours of active work or a day in the “periodically check mail, Twitter, social networks” mode.

The tablet is charged from a network adapter with an output current of 2A. It takes 3 - 3.5 hours.

Communications

One of the features of this model is support for LTE frequencies: 800/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz. In 2G - B2 / B3 / B5 / B8, and in 3G - B1 and B8.

With the help of the gadget, you can make calls, as with a regular smartphone, since there is a dialer, messages, and a proximity sensor to turn off the screen during a call. Available Wi-Fi b / g / n ("keeps" stable, does not break), Bluetooth version 4.0. GPS is responsible for navigation. Coordinates are determined quickly even with a "cold" start.

Memory and memory card

The RAM is 1 GB, the internal memory is 16 GB, and approximately 10 GB is available to the user. Supports microSD memory cards up to 64 GB. The lack of RAM, of course, is felt, but you can "live".

Cameras

The Philips TLE821L tablet has two cameras installed: a 5 MP main camera with autofocus and a 2 MP front camera. It makes no sense to paint in more detail, since tablets, as a rule, are equipped with simple modules of the “if only there was” type. Nevertheless, this model has at least autofocus, which will make it possible to take a normal picture of an ad, book pages, documents, and the like.

The front camera is surprisingly good, the picture in Skype is good. Nuance: both cameras are very close.

Video is recorded in HD resolution. The picture is adequate, there is autofocus.

Performance and software platform

This tablet uses the MediaTek chipset model MT8735: 64-bit, 4 cores, ARM Cortex-A53, frequency 1.3 GHz. In Antutu, it scores a ridiculous 24,000 points. ARM Mali-T720 graphics capable of running simple toys and almost any movie format in resolutions up to 720p.

The system is Google Android version 6.0 without any skins. It doesn’t work too fast, but you don’t feel any obvious brakes, without microlags. There is a slight slowness in the browser, after loading the pages are scrolled normally, multitouch is adequate. The main thing is that there are no updates and app downloads in the background.

Multimedia

The Philips tablet has two speakerphones installed. They have an average volume - it is quite suitable for video conferencing.

The volume in the headphones is high, the quality, surprisingly, I liked: even the bass is heard. Oddly enough, but in TLE821L you will find an FM radio. For its operation, you need to connect headphones (sensitivity is not bad).

The video is understood in almost all possible formats 720p and 1080p (only at a low bitrate).

Conclusion

I think, for starters, you should ask haters and Aliexpress lovers to move away from keyboards. Yes, I know you have already found the best tablet for $30 and are quite happy with it :)

This model is now sold for 10,000 rubles. Expensive. The gadget is very simple in terms of performance, its key features are: 4G support, the ability to send SMS and make calls, like on a regular smartphone. It is quite suitable for those who need fast mobile Internet, and those who watch YouTube or other streaming services. I would say, quite a use case in the country.
