Honor, Huawei’s brand “for the brave” (#FORTHEBRAVE), has in addition to his Smartphone Honor 6, Honor 3C and the recently Honor 5x, a tablet in the product range. This we have taken for you even more closely and could some positive, but unfortunately also negative aspects on Budget Tablet notice.
Processor: 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core GPU: Adreno 305 Operating system: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.6 Internal Memory: 16 GB of internal memory RAM: 1GB Display: 8 inch HD IPS display with 1,280 x 800 pixels Dimensions : 210.6 x 127.7 x 7.9 mm Weight: 360 grams Camera: 5 megapixel rear, 0.3 Megapixel front Battery: 4,800 mAh … Full specifications
Even at the packaging remains Honor to his guns and keeps the package in a simple but recognizable light blue. This comes complete without colorful pictures, slogans or descriptions. Only the logo Honor T1 can be seen on the box. The package itself consists of one piece and is performed in a normal cardboard. This is neither particularly thin nor very thick. Overall, it should, however, be sufficient for product protection. Also, the internal structure and the accessories do not differ greatly from other equivalent products. The package includes
- USB cable
- Power Supply Adapter
- Quick Reference Guide
- Warranty provisions
Optical Honor is based on the T1 Samsung design. At least I had the impression of looking at a device of the Korean manufacturer when first unpacked. The reason for this is mainly the white front, which is framed by a silver decorative border. Positive .. the main part of the back is made of aluminum and mediated by a sense of “high quality”. Personally, I would have a rubberized plastic back have preferred, but the Honor T1 slips through the aluminum back not quite as easily from the hand.
Not well done also is the placement of the speaker. This is located centrally on the top side and make the Honor T1 Tablet thus visually to a large smartphone. Where this is not the main point of criticism at this point. Rather is problematic that you always accidentally speaker repeatedly obscured by placing your fingers if you hold the T1 with one hand cross.
In the case processing have to say a big praise Honor. Even without looking at the price level the Honor T1 is first-class workmanship. Many a premium device that is partially 3 times as expensive here could learn a lot. Neither the gap dimensions even at the edges or baffles there are defects in workmanship unclean processing sites. The external buttons are relatively well placed and enclosed in the housing. Although you have a little play but an annoying wobbling and rattling folgliches remains off. The same holds true for the cover of mircoSD slot. The keys can convince with a very good tactile feedback. They respond directly to the press without that they are stiff or unnecessarily require much effort. A problem that is less due to the processing, but the technology that lies at the display. Here you have to wonder why Honor relies on outdated technology at T1 and installed the display with distance from the glass. Clearly it must at a budget device no OGS or even InCell display but “behind” the disc’s in Smart Devices sector almost to describe his as far as “retro”.
Equal first the display of Honor T1 could not convince us. As written above, you have to admit though, that this is a budget tablet, yet came in the course of the entire test again and again the question of “Why?” Tall. But first things first. The display of Honor T1 comes with a Auflösug of 1,280 x 800 pixels, so HD-ready standard. While this may appear to be sufficient at first glance, at second glance, but this is at 8 inches mitterlweile too little. The colors and contrast values can be much to be desired. The image quality will appear a total of slightly milky. Especially evident is the most black value, the more of a gray level similar as a black tone. Despite these shortcomings, the Honor T1 can score as well. First there is the good brightness, which showcases its strong qualities in bright environments. What the highly reflective display then nullifies in direct sunlight again. Next, the viewing angle stability has to be mentioned positively. Here the Honor T1 only shows slight color distortion even at stronger inclination angles.
As with the display technology Honor T1 limps back even when the software behind the current standard. As a base operating system only Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (including vulnerabilities) and Huawei’s UI EMUI is used which also in turn is only present in version 1.6 and therefore has a corresponding layer of dust on it has to put it colloquially. A software update we have so far not find out what’s not understandable for me and a real shame, but has even get my almost 2 year old Acer A1 Tablet Android 4.4 update to Kitkat. One must remember that the T1 Honor went on sale towards the end of 2014 here. Otherwise, you can tell the software that age also. Liquid use is rarely possible. In the background always resonates with a small basic jerking that really should not exist in this hardware and display resolution.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core SoC with 1.2GHz clock speed distributes tasks inside the Honor T1. This is supported by an Adreno 305 graphics processor and 1 GB RAM. So overall no components that snap in a current range of stools. This one gets unfortunately directly at the power to feel.
In AnTuTu benchmark the Honor Tablet achieved, for example, only a meager 15980 points with other tests and tools it does not look better. The Honor T1 bobs around here at the bottom.
Reflected the will be very nice in games. The Honor T1 is now truly no Games Tablet. One might almost think alone to think of a game like Real Racing 3 or Dead Trigger to open the Tab 2 brings sweat. Nearly every Game with Unity Engine and halfway usable graphics and lighting effects can not go beyond a more or less playable Ruckelorgie. For Temple Run, Candy Crush Saga and Co, it is sufficient, however.
The Honor T1 has a main camera with 5 megapixel maximum resolution. That must now nothing hot bad at first glance, as many pixels deliver far no good image quality. Still have to say that the camera also proves as a “problem child” and not really better than it is on paper one. Almost all of mine made test photos are sorted mach environment moderately to completely noisy and, moreover, always slightly out of focus. There is also partially but significantly color distortions particularly radiant tones, such as red or money are a bit bleached.
As earlier described above, Honor installed at T1 the external speaker on the front of the tablet. To the problem of placement is more, as was so often again saved in the speaker component. The sound is generally tinny and has no momentum. He also tends to roll over at high volumes and distorting playback. So if you value good sound, you should connect a headset to the useful Honor T1 so be sure when he hears music or a movie looks.
Video I had so far in my testing not as a separate category, the Honor T1 but it has managed that I have to lose about a few words. The interplay of the already known points of criticism here affects namely the most. Firstly, here is the picture quality. Can we in the tablet size on the “low” resolution even ignore, makes a color reproduction, especially in dark scenes, the fun niece. On the other hand we still have to a speaker of a more yelling than that you could enjoy a feature-length film, if … yes if he ever runs smoothly. HD media should be avoided as far as due to the weak performance of the hardware Honor T1. 720p still works quite well, at 1080p and up the Honor tab has then been remarkably trouble.
One bright spot in addition to the processing is the battery. With 4,800 mAh capacity Honor T1 has enough power to make ends meet. In continuous test arrived we display a maturity of over 7 hours and the standby can be proud of. Here the Honor T1 boasts a net consumption of 0.5% points / hour. Overall it reached in our test when connected via Wi-Fi, a standby period of 9 days.
More shadows than light in Honor T1. It is, unlike the other devices Honor, not a high flyer. Clear but the price reflects the power again for a device from the year 2014 the ratio too bad. The further the test has progressed, the more the impression went with me wide that Honor only offered to have the T1 also a tablet on the market. Positive is the choice of materials and processing are convincing. Here the Honor T1 is in this price range ahead of its competitors. Those looking for a low-priced Tabletmit long battery life and wants to look a rumsurfen or a few short Youtube videos for which the Honor T1 is a viable choice. Who wants but use it as a bed-entertainment center, which would be better – and we have to say as a fan Honor – even look at the competition.
