NATPC M013S | NATPC M013S Review


Product Description

The latest generation android tablets are here showing an astonishing array of features built-in. Our M013S Capacitive tablet comes with a 10.1" screen - that most useful of sizes, offering a good balance between desktop space and portability.
The capacitive five-point touchscreen offers smooth performance coupled with the ability to "pinch to zoom". No need for a stylus here - finger touch is preferred.
The new, A10 processor offers up to 1.2GHz frequency coupled with a 400MHz dedicated graphics processor to provide seamless play in, even the most intensive, 3D games or allows more apps to be run concurrently without the inevitable cpu slowdown experienced in lesser tablets.
PLEASE NOTE: The Android 4.0 ICS software is still in Beta and this tablet currently does not support BBC iPlayer although this will be amended in the next software update. In fact, iPlayer runs very well under ICS in the final version which has not yet been released, however.

Well what you can expect from a tablet a quarter of the price of an Ipad. I ordered this because i wanted more real estate screen size rather than the 7 inch NATP that has been getting rave reviews so i took a gamble on this. The screen is a better resolution, the scrolling is smooth, full UK android market readily available and web browsing is excellent on a tablet this size.
I did get the keyboard randomizing letters and deleting when the charger was plugged in but not on usb charging but I’m sure a software update in the near future will fix that so not worried as yet.

Installed GO launcher and Dolphin browser for web browsing. Both a lot better than the standard installed apps.
Tried quite a few games to test it out but beware if you like racing games. The accelerometer doesn’t work in all games. Most do but remember this is still a beta build of Ice Cream Sandwich so a likely update will be needed. This only affects a few games like My paper plane, Temple run and a couple of others but for the big majority you won`t even notice it. Works fine on Tiki Kart and Speed forge and most others.

Adobe reader renders well for PDF`s and Amazon Kindle works fine as well.
Cut the Rope, Angry birds, Tower Raiders 2, Google earth, Gmail, Google Play all run great.

All in all for the price it’s a good bit of kit. The only drawback is the shortened battery life which you are going to get on all cheaper tablets because the batteries are smaller. If you can live with charging after using it for 2-3 hours it’s a bargain at the price. Technology moves so fast these days i don`t want to spend 400 quid on something that`s outdated in a year and if you are reading this review I’m suspecting you don`t either!!Something like this you can pass to your kids next year and buy a new one when better tech is out next year.

Dont Forget Amazon Offer a Fantastic 30 Day Money Back Gaurantee!!!
