Ekotek Ekotab Encore 2U tablet review

I'm done with one of my first Android reviews for local tech brand Ekotek. For this space, I have my judgment on one of their available Android tablets which is the Ekotab Encore 2U tablet.

Running on Android 4.4 Kitkat, I like that the brand didn't put in that much skin on it which is a right mix for it's low cost quad-core SoC. I'm already used to WSVGA display resolution as it almost as the same clarity that I saw in low-cost tablets of an international brand.



Expected that the tablet is a bit thicker but I got no problems on handling it even on one hand. One bad thing for me that I saw: not unified storage as it will only give you less than a GB out of 8 GB ROM for apps. 


On benchmarks, a bit of surprise that it has temperature sensor plus the usual proximity and sound. On Antutu, it scored at 16,300. The AllWinner A33 quad-core processor is clocked at 1.5 GHz. For this one, I managed to go to Clash of  Clans and Philippine Slam.






For battery, I had my usual battery video rundown test as it got 4 hours and 7 minutes out of 2,500 mAh battery which is average. On my real world test of word processing, videos, gaming and social media, I maxed it out in 12 hours. Charging time is also a-ok at 2 1/2 hours. This is the best so far that I tried in the number of AllWinner-powered tablets in the past. 

Unfortunately, the audio jack is kinda not in full form on my review unit as I had difficulty in verifying it on my non-CTIA and CTIA earphones that I had to insert it in a not in full action, good enough for some movie marathon.

For Php 2,999, this is not a bad product by Ekotek. I knew there's a market for some people who already hated some local brands but they want to try something new, reliable and affordable then this one Ekotab Encore 2U might be your next best thing. One challenge for this device in my opinion: there are some tablets in the same price with more reliable SoCs (and support too) like Intel or on Mediatek. I'll gonna give 3.75 out of 5 for the Ekotab Encore 2U by Ekotek which you can buy at Ekotek kiosks and dealers around the country.
