Onda Vi30W 8 Review
TweetWhat is your take on appropriate size for a modern-day slate? Is it 5 inches? Is it seven, ten? Or, is it something in-between that, like the economy-sized tablet the Onda Vi30W 8? As you ponder on that, we have business to take care of, yea’ as we always do. That Italian company, Onda, is really making some headlines lately. Some like gadget-y Goldilocks trudging between continuous seas of alternatives; Onda seems to be going the trend of endless releasing a range of fractionally dissimilar tablets.
Today, we’re shifting gears on the Onda Vi30W 8. This authoritative tablet survives because, seemingly, two already released, the Onda Vi20W and the Onda VX610W were small. Well, is the new $179.99 Vi30W 8 just the thing?
If you went through our previous review of the Onda VX610W, then, you’ll find the Vi30W 8 slightly an easy beast. No doubt, gadget companies are fighting to find a universal style to apply to all their gadgets; Onda here seems to have no difficulty simply growing up its elder tablet’s general design by close to 11%. And you’ll only notice few faint differences when you put these slates shoulder-to-shoulder.
The Vi30W 8 has plastic back with a faux brushed metallic feel. It’s the same to what’s presently applied to the Onda Vi20W’s rear and absolutely has a nicer touch compared to some smooth plastic 10-inchers we’ve earlier reviewed. It has a dark, blackish hue and that as the only color alternative, now, your only alternative for customization sits on the capacity front: 8GB or 32GB, both of which can be expanded via microSD.
Its 8-inch display impresses, with a pixel density of 800*600px exactly the same as the 7 incher, which does provide text including high-contrast smoother appearance. Viewing angles are satisfactory and, in general, this is unquestionably a first-class panel in here. The Vi30W 8 adopts the same A10 1.5GHz dual-core processor as the VX610W, so, you should expect some familiar performance levels here – but not necessarily identical. That said, if you want a tablet entirely for relaxed, couch surfing with a slightly larger display, then it’s the thing.
