Some apprehension ...


Announcing this tablet designed in France, I must admit I had some doubts about the relevance of the machine. Why? Simply by its similarities too close with the GamePad Archos, released last year. Same specifications, same format, same screen resolution, same OS, same price ... Outside of design and color, all is almost identical in all respects. Except that the machine Tekniser accuses almost a year behind the competition, which is huge in the highly scalable and competitive world of tablet PCs.

Difficult to see the real benefits of Tekniser. So with a few doubts that I opened the box containing the object of all my questions. To learn more, this is the next paragraph!


II - Packaging:

Opening the package. And some apprehensions. The box is half French and half in English. "Touch Capacitive Touchscreen Tablet," "Powered by Android 4.1" ... Then comes the detail ready to smile: "HD 1024 x 600 screen." Needless to say, this is a purely marketing false argument, since the HD standard begins with resolutions of 1280 x 720 or 1920 x 1080 or more. So we are far, the resolution here is all there is more basic and that's what is on 99% of entry-level tablet. Moreover, other brands do not hesitate to use the same kind of hooks ...

I then caught the eye by a box that says proudly: "60 to customer advantage: 1 + free cover included 5 Compil Quiz." Again, difficult not a smile to the joys of marketing. Either the case is solid gold or 5 games are real masterpieces, but I find it hard to believe that the whole is worth 60 ! In any case, it is always nice to know that it will not invest in a bag, especially when the dimensions of the shelves are slightly non-standard due to the buttons. But enough bad language, it is time to open the package.

In the box, nothing whopping well: the tablet, a leaflet in French and English, a USB OTG cable, a micro USB cable, AC charger and case I mentioned earlier. It's the little extra that makes fun, even if an HDMI cable would have been welcome. The cover is made of neoprene and cut to accommodate the tablet, it is too big for a classic 7 ". About the instruction (black and white), it is too brief to be useful for beginners on Android, although the part about the button mapping is relatively well done.


Now on to the tablet itself. First of all, here's a little reminder embedded in the hardware device:

     Screen 7 "Capacitive 16:9 with a resolution of 1024 x 600
     Dual-core processor Rockchip RK3066 Cortex A9 clocked at 1.6 GHz
     GPU Mali 400 quad-core
     1GB DDR3 RAM
     8 GB of internal storage
     Micro-USB, mini-HDMI, micro-SD up to 32GB
     WiFi 802.11 b / g / n
     Two cameras 0.3 MP and 1.3 MP
     4000 mAh battery
     Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

No IPS, medium resolution, a former processor ... Again, my fears quickly back at a gallop. But do not put the cart before the horse and see what looks like the design.


III - Design and development:

Those who have the MyPlay tablet DEA - the French company that also distributes Tekniser - will not be disoriented by the design of the TEK807D because it is the same at 99%. Note though the appearance of a second joystick and a few buttons and more. Apart from that, the appearance is also reminiscent of a famous portable game console, the Sony PSVita, but bigger. At the same time, hard to get really different concepts without killing ergonomics.

Regarding the rest of the tablet, the design is pretty good, there are no cracks in the hull which is very well assembled and seems solid. USB, HDMI and Jack ports are located on the top while the micro-SD slot is on the bottom right. With such investment, it is quiet to play without getting tangled in son! Moreover, the connection works perfectly well, I did not have any particular problems during my testing. On the back, the reset button will get out of an unwelcome crash.

Despite a substantial thickness, the machine is relatively light and does not cause fatigue play sessions for several hours. Note that there are small rubber pads on the back so as not to damage the tablet when it is placed, it is a good idea that will extend the life of the plastic shell. Always back speaker to the left can be found hidden behind a grid. There is also a grill on the other side, but it is probably just venting, there is indeed a speaker. Moreover, it is very powerful, but quickly saturates. Beyond 50%, the crackling and popping seriously harm the sound experience. Fortunately, even set at half the sound is very good and we can enjoy it even in a somewhat noisy.
