Onda V80 Plus 8-inch Windows/Android Tablet Review

By December 11, 2016 No Comments

Introduction

Onda is a very new name for me to personally be writing about. But I wanted to throw you straight into the facts (no waffling is our ethos). This feature rich tablet is a budget tablet that on the box apparently packs a punch. It is perfect for those who want the best of both worlds, Windows & Android.

Design & Performance

This tablet isn’t holding any punches with 2GB of DDR3L Ram and a quad core out of the box. This offers decent performance considering the price tag. However, this won’t win any benchmarking reviews. The thing we loved about this tablet was actually the unusual size. It isn’t very often you run across a tablet that utilises a screen of this size and it is actually quite a nice stepping stone from 7″ screens to the overkill 10″ screens.

All of the other features are pretty much what you would expect from a tablet. There isn’t really anything to write home about, and that just about sums up the performance and design of this product.

Conclusion

If you are looking for the occasional tablet to decide if the tablet life is a life for you, then this isn’t a half bad choice. However, if you are a power user looking for a product that will be the frequent driver for almost all of your daily tasks? Then this might feel slightly clunky and slightly outdated.

It is a shame really as the product has some really cool features like the dual boot mode, and at such a low price point. We actually wish that more tablets on the market offered features like the dual boot functionality, I mean it even comes with a mini HDMI port!

But at the end of the day, we understand that people might be cash strapped and wanting an alternative to the higher end tablets, which this particular product does fill. But it really can’t be compared to the other products that simply dominate the market.
