When presenting the tablets of Chinese firm Voyo over the last few months, it has become clear how this company, which is gradually gaining weight in Europe through the Internet shopping portals, has also bet on the creation of terminals aimed at a professional audience in order to better circumvent the current context of the tablet sector. As with many other firms in the Asian country, the strategy not only involves adapting to new groups but also the possibility of offering more affordable terminals that, at first glance, can meet the needs of the most demanding in the workplace.
With the boom experienced by the convertible devices, it might seem that the conventional ones are in the background, unable to be attractive for users who have already seen all the innovation possible in them and at the same time postpone the maximum possible time acquisition of new terminals. Today we present Voyo Q101 HD, Voyo’s bet to remain as an option to take into account among the bulk of the audience using tablets: The domestic. Will it offer eye-catching features to be an option to keep in mind even though the number of units sold continues to decline? How can it be maintained despite having outdated software as one of its limitations?
Voyo Q101: Design
One of the strengths of this model is its dimensions: Despite being a large terminal as we will see below, those of Voyo seem to correct some of the shortcomings of the Chinese tablets low cost: Poor quality finishes and very coarse.
In the case of the Voyo Q101 HD, we would be facing a terminal that would not exceed 450 grams and whose thickness is only 8 millimeters. According to its creators, this facilitates a better grip.
Voyo Q101: Screen
As we remember previously, this tablet is directed at first for leisure. This is reflected through its 10.1-inch screen which is accompanied by an HD resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels. On the other hand, it has two cameras: a back of 5MP and a front of 2MP. These characteristics, linked to the processor and memory, would be, according to Voyo, ideal for the reproduction of audiovisual contents in High Definition as well as games that Require a lot of resources. But we must have another idea clear: The titles existing when this model went on sale, were different from the current ones in terms of graphics but also, as far as the necessary requirements for its operation.
Voyo Q101: Performance
MediaTek is once again the choice chosen by most Asian manufacturers. In the case of the Q101 HD, we would be facing a processor MT6582 whose maximum speed would be 1.85 GHz.
One of the parameters that would also exclude it from the professional sector is its RAM, only 1 GB and its storage capacity, from 16 expandable to 32, which is far behind if we compare it with the standards we can find now in Terminals in its category that in some cases can reach 64 or even 128.
Voyo Q101: OS
Currently, in the Android universe, we find approximately one new interface per year. The Voyo Q101 HD has among its major limitations an outdated interface, version 4.4 KitKat of the green robot software.
How is it possible that this device remains among the reference of the company? The answer is, once again, in the group of users to whom it is focused.
As the tactic of the brand has been directed in the last two years to the creation of tablets 2 in 1, the Q101 is one of the tricks that it is left to the signature to compete within the traditional terminals. Although in this case, the longevity of the model may play against it. In terms of connectivity, we found support for 3G networks and WiFi.
Voyo Q101: Availability and price
A tablet like this, which already has a long trajectory in the market, has lights and shadows in these last two qualities. As for its possible acquisition, difficulties can arise if we consider that in many portals of purchase by the Internet, already is discontinued or in process of it. Even so, it is still available in some for just under 100 euros and you can find out more about it on the company’s own website.
After knowing more about one of the conventional Voyo tablets focused on meeting the needs of groups such as those mentioned above, do you think that although in many cases, these models are used for audiovisual purposes, they should be more recent and count with more current software to be really competitive? Do you think that the Chinese technology has been successful in betting on more elaborate terminals with which it could also get the favor of the user groups that the Voyo Q101 HD is aimed at? You have more information available on other models much more recent as the Vbook so you can give your opinion.
