SPC Blink 10.1, a cheap tablet with a large screen

SPC Blink 10.1 is another of the latest models of the manufacturer and that now goes through Gizlogic for our test. We already talked about this inexpensive tablet and now we have had the opportunity to test it thoroughly. A device with a 10.1-inch screen, 5000 mAh battery and available in different colors. The best thing is its price that does not exceed € 100. We review the features of the tablet in our review.

Design and materials: SPC Blink 10.1, a cheap tablet with a large screen

The simplicity prevails in the SPC Blink 10.1 and we notice that in the design. We once again have a similar design to other models such as the SPC Glow 10.1 tablet . A unibody construction in polycarbonate and with different colors available: gold, white, pink or blue. The feel is good although the logo adhesive is removed with some ease, something that SPC has to review. The measurements of this tablet are 25.9 x 14.8 x 1.1 cm and its weight reaches 512 g.

The glass covers the entire front surface of the tablet, protecting the 10.1 ″ LCD panel and the front camera in the upper right corner, with a resolution of 0.3 MP. On the back we see the main camera with a 2 MP sensor, the speaker in the same position as other models of the brand and a slot for placing a microSD storage card.

The rest of the connections are concentrated on the edges of the SPC device. We start with the tablet’s power key, a hidden reset button, 3.5 mm headphone jack, MicroUSB connector, miniHDMI for connection to televisions, power connector, backspace key and the integrated microphone. Despite all this, it lacks a physical volume control, as it is implemented in the software.

Technical performance

SPC Blink 10.1 has a simple technical sheet commensurate with the low price of the product. Inside we find an Allwinner Quad Core 64 bit 1.3 GHz processor. It is accompanied by a Mali 400 MP2 graphics card and a RAM memory of up to 2 GB (1 GB for the 8/16 GB storage versions). With regard to storage we have several options to choose from, 8, 16 and 32 Gb of storage. They are not very high figures but we can always add a microSD of up to 128 GB or a storage unit (pendrive or USB hard disk).

It is not a technical marvel but it does not offer resistance for day-to-day tasks (browsing, networking, etc.). Obviously, it is more limited for use with video games, especially those with a certain graphic load. It is also a good companion for boring plane rides with support for apps like YouTube or Netflix. Includes an accelerometer and GPS sensor for navigation. The SPC Blink 10.1 circuitry runs Android 7.0 Nougat with updates via OTA.

Screen, sound and cameras

The SPC Blink 10.1 screen is an IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels. We did not reach an HD resolution and that can be noticed in some content, although at the level of color and angles, it is at a correct level. Yes, we do miss a little more brightness outdoors. The reflections of the glass is another of the points to improve for the brand, a problem that carries with it from other models. For the price range, little more can be asked.

The sound just delivers. SPC Blink 10.1 makes use of a loudspeaker on the back and that does not stand out especially in terms of volume or sound quality. Distortion is present when we go up to 80% of the volume level. Its placement also does not help if we have the tablet resting on a surface. But as we mentioned before, you can not demand much more, besides that it has Bluetooth and a headphone jack.

The photography section is not usually one of the most important for tablet users or a priority for manufacturers. In this SPC Blink 10.1 we have a 2 MP sensor for the main camera and a 0.3 MP sensor for the front. Obviously, it is not up to par with an entry-level smartphone, but in a way it is justified. The resolution of the videos is limited to VGA.

Connectivity and autonomy: SPC Blink 10.1, a cheap tablet with a large screen

The first point of note is the use of a microSD card slot of up to 128 GB, given the limited base storage. The Micro USB connector has OTG support for storage drives such as pen drives or peripherals. It is also possible to power the tablet using the connector.

From the rest of the connections we point out the mini HDMI for connection to monitors or projectors and the headphone jack. SPC Blink 10.1 also has WiFi 802.11 b / g / n wireless connection, GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. But it lacks an NFC chip or an Internet connection through 3G SIM cards ( SPC Glow 10 3G ).

WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and OTG connectivity

SPC incorporates a 5,000 mAh battery. A capacity that a priori is not bad, but that provides about 4 hours of screen with average use. It is a somewhat fair figure but that can be corrected, to a certain extent, with the use of a powerbank.
