First look at the 8-inch Alcatel OneTouch Hero 8 D820 tablet

Alcatel is not very famous for its tablets, as a rule, these are budget devices with a low price and nice design. Attempts to act on equal terms with more eminent brands have never been made, the reason was not a lack of desire, but rather a sound assessment of their capabilities. In 2014, the company tried to change this image about itself, the Hero 8 model is the first step in this direction. Moreover, a step that can safely be called cautious and not unambiguous in everything. At a cost similar to the iPad Mini, albeit with worse specs, Alcatel's model certainly can't count on good reception. The high price stems from the quality of the materials, but at the same time, the iPad also has an aluminum case. We have already seen similar attempts from other companies, for example, Huawei with MediaPad failed to become popular. I think that a similar fate awaits the tablet from Alcatel. Only the price can be a reason to choose tablets from B-brands, but not the best functionality for the same money.

Design, dimensions, controls

The tablet is made in an aluminum case, the metal is felt from the first moment you take it in your hands, however, as well as the device's weight of 310 grams. I specifically checked my feelings - the tablet seems heavy, although everything is within the normal range for other devices. The tablet size is 209x122x7.3 mm.

There are not so many control elements, this is a paired volume key, an on / off button. It is unusual that there is an infrared port, it is used to control household appliances. There is a front camera (2 megapixels), the main camera - 5 megapixels, it has autofocus. https://cars45.com.gh/degdiP2kvJZDbTzfO71IbZPa did not evaluate the quality of the camera, since it is not very important in a tablet, but I think that there is nothing special.

MicroUSB connector, there is a 3.5 mm jack. The speaker in the tablet is one, but quite loud. There are no complaints about the build quality of this device, it is very good. And in terms of design, I liked this tablet. He copied the best solutions from other companies in one package.

Alcatel OneTouch Hero 8 D820 Tablet

Display

The screen is 8 inches, resolution - 1920x1200 pixels, IPS, good viewing angles. In my opinion, the screen is not the brightest, but quite comfortable. It is impossible to say something special about it, the oleophobic coating is easily soiled.

Battery

The built-in battery has a capacity of 4060 mAh, it will be enough for several days of active work, that is, there are no big differences from other devices.

Memory, RAM, hardware platform

The device has 2 GB of RAM, built-in 16 GB (12.9 GB available to the user)

The MediaTek 8392 chipset used has 8 cores, the maximum frequency is 1.7 GHz. This is a new generation solution, quite productive. See test results.

Коммуникационные возможности

Program features

Alcatel tries not to change the standard Android much, but still brings its own changes, in particular, adding the features that we see in the Galaxy Note line. So, I like that the company is working on multitasking, it was the first after Note to show the split screen into several windows, this mode remains in this tablet, and it has changed. Look at the screenshots, they show a row of touch keys and two additional buttons. This is the ability to run applications in small windows, change their size, close and move around the screen. That is, almost complete multitasking.

Similar to the Hero 2 smartphone, on the main screen, some icons now have a small square in the lower right corner. These are kind of widgets, not simple icons. So, you can swipe up on the icon, and a mini-window of a voice recorder, player, or something similar will open. The idea is very elegant and simple.

Otherwise, everything remains traditional - there are programs for synchronizing and archiving data, a DJ console in a separate pre-installed program. For a stylus, a couple of programs that do not cause much enthusiasm, this is definitely not Note with its capabilities.

In general, the sensations from the product are extremely positive, the only thing I don't like is the cost - it crosses out all the pluses. I will also say that there is an example of a similar product with a similar fate, this is Huawei MediaPad X1 - it cost 15,000 rubles at the start and could not win at least some noticeable popularity.

Therefore, apparently, Hero 8 will remain the first experiment of this kind, but it is important for the company that there are other similar experiments.

Impressions

The cost of Hero 8 will be about 14,990 rubles in Russia, which is expected, but expensive for such a product not from Apple. The presence of an LTE module, the ability to make calls to this device does not make it much more advantageous, we expect an advantage in functionality. The estimated price at which such a tablet could become popular and noticeable is about 12,000 rubles.

Among the accessories there is a smart cover with an LED screen, a rather interesting solution, it will obviously cost from 3,000 rubles and more.
