TECNO mobile, technological giant and top smartphone manufacturer have been on an unrelentless and consistent run to the top of the mobile technology market through the launch of the TECNO WinPad 2; its second flagship tablet.
The WinPad 2 is an impressive upgrade on last year’s TECNO WinPad 10 device with improved specifications and applaudable hardware upgrades.
Now let’s move down to see what this beautiful device is made of.
DON’T MISS: TECHPRODUCTS’ MID-JANUARY TECH DOSE
The Tecno WinPad 2 is a metallic and lightweighted device. The WinPad 2 is also a two-in-one device that provides users with the double delight of one; serving both as a tablet and a PC.
With a detachable keyboard that is super sleek and easy to detach and attach, the device is a very suitable option for travellers that wouldn’t love carrying their bulky laptops along for business trips or even vacations. The portability of the device is also a very attractive feature that makes the device a good choice of device.
The TECNO WinPad 2 has a 9.2mm thick body with a general dimension of 260.5 x 164.9 x 9.2mm and weight of 600g.
The keyboard is one of the excellent and outstanding features that makes the WinPad 2 tablet stand out among other tablets. The WinPad 2 keyboard is a full keyboard layout design which is identical to that on most laptop devices… except for the absence of a dedicated numeric keypad.
How to attach the keyboard to the tablet? That’s one helluva easy task as the tablet docks on the keyboard and you won’t be needing a Bluetooth or any other wireless network bto establish a connection between the tablet and the keyboard. In addition, the keyboard has a fully functional track pad and you can easily detach the keyboard from the WinPad2 using a dedicated button.
The Tecno WinPad 2 being a tablet that it is, sports a large 10.1-inch High Definition IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with a 1280 x 800 Pixels resolution. The resolution is highly suitable for perfect viewing on the device as it has the ability to display up to 16,000,000 colours.
PROCESSOR & OS
The WinPad 2 has an Intel® Atom X5-Z8350 Quad-Core CPU that powers the device functioning. Having an Atom X5-Z8350 being an entry-level CPU however limits the performance of the device to a not-so-top-notch level but it however still performs brilliantly.
The use of Intel® Atom X5-Z8350 also limits the RAM capacity to 2GB and sadly, there is no option to expand the RAM and therefore you have to get stuff done with the meager 2GB of RAM and due to this tiny RAM, lags and stutters are likely to be experienced when multitasking between programs or running processes on the device.
However, in lieu of this and as a way of making up for the poor RAM and processor make, the CPU has a smart function that automatically hibernates programs that aren’t in active use and thus you can squeeze some extra performance from the WinPad 2.
The Tecno WinPad 2 comes with a rear 5MP camera with autofocus but no LED flash. The selfie snapper is however of 2MP quality which still manages to produce quality and bright selfies. The quality of the captured images and video is 6/10 but still manageable and satisfactory, especially when used for video calls.
The Tecno WinPad 2 comes with a monstrous 7000mAh battery capacity which is a markedly improvement on Tecno’s WinPad 10 flagship. The battery juice can comfortably provide up to 10 hours of device functioning on a single full charge. Most tablet device in the market can not boast of such battery power.
The WinPad 2 while supporting 2G/EDGE network also supports 3G network connectivity. Wi-Fi networks is also supported.
The WinPad 2 is also equipped with 3 comprehensive USB ports with one of the single USB having a USB 3.0 rating and this enhances the rate and speed of transfer of files between compatible hardware devices. There is also a mini HDMI and a micro SD card slot.
On the WinPad 2, you get 64 GB to store your files and documents. This is however adequate for Excel and Word files and other media files.
In case the internal storage space of 64GB is not enough, you can choose to expand the memoryof your device to up to 128 GB through the Micro-SD slot.
That’s it people, the Tecno WinPad 2 review. Feel free to share this review to your friends and family so that they can have an idea of the device specifications and features before getting one. Who knows… they could even get one for you too!
