Point of View ProTab 3 XXL 8GB review

Point of View ProTab 3 XXL 8GbPoint of View was first known for its budget tabs but lately is getting its name associated with devices that offer more bang for the buck (like 9.7 inch ProTab 2). The ProTab 3 XXL is a 4.1.1 Android tablet with a 10.1 inches IPS panel. Feels well built but is a bit heavy. Aluminum back casing is a bit thin but looks good.

Using Rockchip is the first sign that this is a budget tablet. No premium tablets use them. RK3066 used here is a 1.6GHz A9 dual core processor with a 4 cores Mali 400 MP (same one used in Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1) – not bad at all. It also has 1 GB of DD3 RAM. Storage space is, as the name suggests, 8GB. WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth are in as well as MicroSD, HDMI and USB slots. Cameras are of low end 2/0.3 MP variety.

Great 10 inch tab with IPS display for a low price. Some of its hardware is above average (same GPU as in Galaxy Note 10.1) but suffers from quality issues.

Highlight of this tablet is its 1280×800 IPS screen with better than average viewing angles and color saturation.

Those of us who like their Android tabs vanilla with no pre-installed apps will like Protab 3 XXL.

Specs: 4.1.1 Android 1.6GHz A9 dual core processor with a 4 cores Mali 400 MP, 1280×800 IPS screen, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, MicroSD, HDMI and USB. Cameras are 2/0.3 MP.

Pros: Cheap tablet with a high quality display and then some.

Cons: Faulty devices with flickering are apparently quite common. Also reported units with battery problems.

Price: $300
