Doogee T10 review: the (cheap) Android tablet you don't expect

Doogee T10 review best cheap android tablet 10 inch display performance features data sheet

If you are a "mainstream" user you probably don't know Doogee. If, on the other hand, you follow us more consistently, however, you will have known for some time how much the Chinese brand has managed to distinguish itself in one of the most competitive markets ever, thanks to its smartphones which are mostly cheap, but among the most interesting in terms of quality / price. To be honest, in my opinion one of the hallmarks of the brand has always been that of not wanting to "overdo it" with super pumped technical characteristics and mind-boggling numbers (factors which, especially in this segment of the market, are generally just smoke and mirrors ), but to produce devices for all budgets, always successful and always well functioning. In short, if I had to choose an adjective for the brand's products, I would probably choose "substance".

Well, just a few days after the official presentation, the new one is now available for the global market Doogee T10, the device that marks the brand's entry into the tablet market which, it must be said, technically does not promise anything particularly new compared to its direct competitors, but which continues to stand out for its "substance": all the hardware of which it features works well, is well made and in fact is able to do even more than what one would expect from an Android tablet for less than 200 euros.

Doogee T10 review: Among the best budget Android tablets

Design and materials

From a purely aesthetic and material point of view, holding the Doogee T10 you immediately get the feeling of using a device worth at least 400 euros. Sure, it's a tablet and as such it's rather bulky, but with its 7.5 mm thickness it's quite comfortable to hold even with one hand. Large 242,3 x 161,1 x 7,5 mm, heavy 570 grams and made with an aluminum cover the Doogee T10 it is available in three colors, Space Gray, Neptune Blue and Moonlight Silver, we received the first one as a test but, I must admit, I would have liked to touch the blue one, in my opinion the most beautiful of the three.

At the front there is a large 10.1" screen, whose frames could perhaps be a little too marked: in reality, however, the optimization of the frames is more than good for a tablet at less than 200 euros, and it is precisely this thickness that it will help users not to accidentally touch the screen when holding the device, especially with one hand.

Using the tablet in horizontal mode, the volume keys and the power key will be on the left side of the device, while the SIM tray is located on top: so yes, the Doogee T10 it is a 4G Dual SIM Android tablet, and it is a feature that should not be underestimated especially considering the price range.

On the back there is also a camera bump characterized by a not exactly "one of a kind" design inside which a 13 megapixel camera has been positioned, while there is also the USB-C input for recharging the huge 8300mAh battery. 3.5 mAh and the input for the XNUMX mm headphone jack.

Finally, a little note on the contents of the package: Doogee T10 arrives with a film to protect the screen pre-installed, and in the package there are also a cover that will also work as a stand, and a capacitive pen with which to write freehand or draw.

Display

The screen is good, compared to the selling price of the tablet. The panel used is a 10.1” IPS with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution which, okay, isn't among the best ever, but it guarantees a performance very similar to what you would find in tablets sold from 250 euros and up. So, considering that Doogee T10 it costs almost 100 euros less, the value for money of the display of this tablet is absolutely in its favor.

The maximum brightness is good, which allows it to be used even in direct light conditions, the colors are well calibrated but do not expect ultra-deep blacks or extreme viewing angles. For what it costs, it's a good IPS which, yes, has some small flaws, but guarantees more than enough performance to satisfy the purpose for which this tablet was produced which, in my opinion, focuses heavily on multimedia.

It is not for nothing that it is one of the very few panels in this price range certified by TÜV Rheinland, which means that it integrates a whole series of solutions designed to not strain the eyes, complete with Eye Comfort, Dark Mode and Sleep Mode.

In addition, it also has certification Widevine L1: this means that the tablet supports streaming in high definition on the main video platforms (Netflix, Hulu and so on).

Hardware and Performance

Doogee T10 it is powered by a Unisoc T606 SoC, flanked by 8 GB of LPDDS4x type RAM and 128 GB of EMMC 5.1 internal memory, expandable up to 1 GB via microSD. So, ok, don't expect high-end performance from this device, but this is where we return to the speech made in the preface: everything the tablet promises to do, it does well and in a very pleasant way.

In a nutshell, don't think of playing 3D games at maximum resolution or taking home video renderings in 4K, but using the device for multimedia, web browsing, and all the more "human" operations, Doogee T10 it will certainly be faster than other tablets sold in the same price range, never showing slowdowns or problems of any kind.

Of course, if we really want to be honest, the only thing that made me turn up my nose a little was the choice to use eMMC 5.1 type memories, which is the only feature that acts as a bit of a bottleneck for this device, but that's okay: you certainly can't expect UFS-type memories in such a cheap tablet.

Good connectivity to the cellular network and dual-band WiFi, but what excels is the audio, very high quality in relation to its price. The sound reproduced by the integrated speakers allow the Doogee T10 to guarantee full-bodied audio, with well-balanced frequencies in which even a small hint of bass is heard. From this point of view, the brand has done a really good job.

Camera

Personally then, I wouldn't dwell too much on the camera, and the reason is simple: the photographic sector already exists poco satisfactory on tablets sold at prices 5 times higher than Doogee T10, and therefore from an economic model my "claims" are equal to zero.

Of course, on paper the integrated 13 megapixel camera could promise excellent results, but in reality it is perhaps the technical feature that least convinced me in this device. So much so that I decided to leave out the samples too, also because the discussion is simple: Doogee T10 it is a tablet for multimedia, certainly not for taking photos or videos.

Software

Doogee T10 it is animated by Android 12 which, practically, is not absolutely customized by the brand. However, as per tradition on many products like this, the software is always the same, characterized by the usual graphical interface that many share and which looks a good 90% like Android Stock.

However, it integrates the Split Screen function and the 2-in-1 Mode, which however only works by connecting an external keyboard, and even if it might not seem like anything special to you, I think the Doogee T10 is one of the very few tablets for less than 200 euros (if not the only one) with which you can use two apps at the same time without too many problems.

The entire suite of Google services is installed from the first start, there is the Italian language with very few translation defects and, again, it supports Widevine L1 certifications.

Battery and recharge

Finally, from the point of view of autonomy and recharging, Doogee T10 he's doing really well. The 8300 mAh battery, together with a decidedly non-energy consuming SoC, allow the tablet to guarantee about 7 and a half hours of display on with a rather traditional type of use. However, these performances are only possible when using the device connected to a WiFi network, because when you start using 4G they drop drastically.

Charging is also good, which with its 18w is much faster than what you would find in any tablet sold in this price range.

Price and considerations

The price of Doogee T10 it is 175,19 euros on AliExpress, but to buy it at this price you will need to take advantage of a limited-time promotion. On Doogee Mall (o Thu) costs $199,99. And, let's face it, it is a product that fits into an economic range that certainly does not offer who knows how many choices. Of course, it is not a perfect tablet, but it guarantees good performance and quality materials, as well as the possibility of using two 4G sims and Widewine L1 certification, something that should not be underestimated in this market segment.

In short, probably in the panorama of Android tablets for less than 200 euros, today you will not find anything better than the Doogee T10.
