Sharp supplied the display panel, accordingly it promises the high quality. A big update over the predecessor (Teclast T10) is a 4G / LTE connection with support for many network bands. Other features include a large 8100mAh battery accompanied with quick charging 9V via USB Type-C port.
Additionally, it comes with a fingerprint reader on the rear panel, Bluetooth 4.1 version, dual-band WiFi, 3.5mm audio jack and Android 7.0 Nougat. The Helio X27 SoC is accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. Due to it, users can enjoy fluid and fast performance of the tablet.
GPS is in both models, like 4G. The SIM card in the new T20 is only one (Nano, 4G), in the M20 there are 2 SIM cards of the Micro format.
All the above-listed features will be discussed in our review.
Teclast T20: Design and Appearance of the 4G Tablet
Teclast chose the right path, getting all their screens from a reputable brand like SHARP, which are considered the best on the market alongside those from Samsung. Previous models Master T10 and M20 had the same chic 2.5K screen. There is a newly minted X27 processor. The memory is not very dense – 4\64 GB, but for Android, this is quite enough. Also, there is a separate slot for the SD card too. By synthetic tests, the performance gain is about 30% compared to X23. The graphics are the same on all three models (Mali T880).
The appearance of the Teclast T20 is very eye-catching. Its simplicity gives the tablet a luxurious look. The powerful tablet comes in a white small box.
Teclast T20 has a thin body (8.5 mm) and metal back cover. The dimensions of the tablet are 24.90 x 13.50 centimeters, and the weight is 504 grams. On the back panel of the Teclast T20 is situated the fingerprint reader. Thus it makes the unlocking process very fast and comfortable.
Moreover, the aluminum body has specific anti-fingerprint protection. Thus helping you to avoid the annoying process of screen cleaning.
On the top of the Teclast T20 tablet, there is a plastic insert for the camera.
The 13MP front camera has a LED light too.
USB Type C port, power button, and volume rocker are located on the top frame of the tablet.
On both sides of the Teclast T20, there are dual speakers, 3.5 mm audio jack and TF/SIM cards. The speakers have good quality and will allow you to watch films in the room.
Teclast T20: Display of the Tablet
As we already spoke about, the Teclast T20 is featured with 10.1-inch multi-touch display produced by Sharp. The WQXGA resolution is fantastic. It is 2.5K, 2560 x 1600 pixels, with a pixel density of 299 PPI.
However, the screen has a sufficient margin for a brightness; we advise to keep 50-60% of light in the room.
Depending on your location you can adjust the brightness level of the Tablet too.
During night reading or film watching you can activate the Eye Care mode, which will protect your eyes from harmful emissions of blue light emitted by LED panels.
