Ekotek is one of the most economical brand for tablets and mobile phones, but economical isn’t the only thing, they’ve got great specs too. I was lucky enough to be sent units (Ekotab 7, Encore L & Encore D) over for review and I have to say that this has really changed the way I look at the prices of tablets.

Design

Ekotek-Ekotab-7-L-D-back

The tablets look pretty sleek, with a modern design that isn’t far off with the more popular brands. Ekotab 7, their latest tablet, has a sleek design, curvy and with enough space to hold without touching the screen. While the Ekotab Encore D and L are both similar in terms of specs but they differ in design, D has a white spotted back while the L has a leather like back.I like the fact that it’s 7 inch which is handy as I walk around and use the tablet. And what’s cool is that each one has a front facing and back facing camera.

Connectivity

Ekotek Ekotab 7

The cool thing about these tablets is that it has different ways to connect, First, each one has WiFi, USB ports (Micro for D&L and Mini for 7), and a slot for memory cards to increase memory and to transfer files around. But with the Ekotab 7, there’s more, there’s even an HDMI port and a regular USB port. There’s just so many ways to move files around and makes it easy for even non-techies to do it.

 

Performance

Ekotab screenshot Games

Every one of the tablets has at least a Dual Core 1GHz Processor and at least a 512 RAM which is enough to work, play or for entertainment. I was able to stream videos from my local network as well as stream videos from YouTube at great speeds. Playing games was also great, there really wasn’t much lag playing the latest games from Play Store.

 

My Personal Opinion on Ekotab

Ekotab-7-Encore-D-L-Tablets

At the price of less than 5,000 pesos each, these tablets are worth the price. It is a fraction of the cost of branded ones but is as powerful if not more than the popular ones. The look is also very sleek and something you won’t be hesitating to bring out of your house, You’ve got to love how these tablets look. I also like the fact that I can connect to it with many different means and be able to connect via HDMI is just perfect for me to stream videos over to my TV. The battery life is great! I was able to do a lot of work, games and watch videos the whole day and have 40% battery to spare.

 

As an entrepreneur, these devices are great to use in a business. From operations to office work, these tablets are a perfect buddy for your business needs. I can imagine these being used as entertainment tablets, order taking, and other out-of-the-box solutions which can improve customer experience.
