Review: Alcatel Plus 10 is special, it has the LTE in the keyboard

We can start straight from the worst, let's say it first. The tablet has just 32 GB of eMMC storage space, where both the operating system and all applications have to be embedded. You can store your own data (documents, photos, movies, music) on a microSD card, but only up to 64GB of capacity. Due to the possible LTE connection and therefore the almost constant availability of cloud services and repositories, this may not be a big problem, but it depends on the expected use.

That's how we got on a really good message, and that's the integrated LTE modem in the keyboard. LTE will be able to use even some local bandwidths and work as a wi-fi (b/g/n) hotspot. This means that the data transfer tablet is connected to it via wi-fi, the system connectors only serve to communicate with the keyboard and touchpad itself. The advantage is the ability to connect other devices (such as a smart phone or Google Chromecast). For the router's needs, the keyboard is equipped with a battery that cannot be used to power the tablet or battery pack, it only serves the needs of the router.

Placing and removing a tablet from the keyboard is easy, you do not have to learn any special skill. At the same time, thanks to the selected angle and shape, it is quite solid, even if you grab a tablet in your hand, the keyboard will not fall out of it. The device is well balanced, even on the lap it does not tend to fall on its back. The main limitation is one single display position, which the manufacturer chooses comfortably, and so we usually like it. After snapping, it holds up so much it has never dismantled in the bag, but the toughness falls into the category just ok.

The keyboard is surprisingly good to write on, the worse it is with the touchpad, it's tiny and the control takes a lot of concentration - we really would love to connect at least a small mouse.

The sound is decent, it plays from the speakers to the sides, we praise the clarity of the voice and the decent zone of the centre. Frequencies are falling at the edges, the depths are only in the shades, but on the tablet it's not bad overall.

The resolution of the 1200 x 800 pixels display is not so good, but the 10 "size is quite adequate. The IPS panel has wide viewing angles, decent colours (although a little less saturated) and a glossy surface. It is a touch display, as it is necessary on devices 2 in 1.

The tablet is powered by the Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor clocked at 1.44 GHz, and Windows 10 has 2 GB of memory, making it clear that with the increasing number of open windows of the browser and running applications, the tablet's fastness will quickly decline.

The producer saved the cameras, and in the dark room they both make a lot of noise and the image will be enough for Skype, but nothing else. When shooting in the exterior, the noise is lower, but the drawing and the colour rendering will not fit, the resolution of the rear camera is 2560 x 1440, the front 1280 x 720. The microphone is better to speak louder, otherwise the sound is a bit losing.

We must applaud to battery life, there's no problem in common use of eight hours battery life, in passive video watching and reading on the Internet for an hour or two longer. For most days, you'll be able to leave the power supply (even if it's tiny) at home, and the whole computer will only weight 827 grams (475 g tablet, 352 keyboard) for your handbag or backpack.

For simple, rather passive tasks, the tablet has enough power, hardware acceleration helps smooth seamless playback of both local and streaming video even in high definition, otherwise it will give you more performance tests.

  • Cinebench 11.5 - Open GL 7.40 fps

It's no super performance, we'd definitely have chosen another machine to edit the photos. Decent 2in1 for reasonable money

Alcatel Plus 10 is now generally available for $ 300, although the official price is slightly higher. It enjoys solid battery life, the integrated wi-fi LTE router keyboard and a totally balanced quality in all respects.

However, you have to settle for 32 GB of built-in memory and 2 GB of memory. That's really not much.
