The Interface

A little bit unusual you might say about this tablet was it runs on an Android 4.3, making this one a little left behind compared to all its other rivalries in the market which run on a standard 4.4 KitKat or even the ones which are powered by the latest Android 5.2. You won’t have to worry much as you will still get all of Google’s basic services which include Gmail, Chrome, Google+, Hangouts, YouTube, Drive, Maps, Play Store and many more. You also get the privilege of changing your tablets background and icons.

To be dead honest, the performance of the T1 might not make you jump off your seat but it still is a pretty effective although there are a few very small issues when you tend to open up multiple applications all at the same time.


As you may already know, the T1’s Snapdragon might not be all that great in the world today but it still can run most of your usual Play Store games. Some of you who love listening to music might get a little by disappointed by the T1’s speaker which you will find at the front. This is because if you were to turn your volume up to more than half, you will start to hear the treble cracking and an overall distorted sound too.

The Battery

The T1 comes with a 4500mAH battery which is actually pretty good and this is to compete with all its other rivals with a much smaller battery capacity. The battery on this tablet here can easily last close to 8 hours 50 minutes which makes it on par with many mid-range or even high-end tablets that have been released in the recent months. When the battery of the T1 was tested to see how long it could stay alive when it came to using the tablet for gaming, it lasted for a good 4 hours and 40 minutes and this is mostly due to the resolution of the game which is being played. It takes 3 solid hours to charge the T1’s tablet back to a 100%.
