The Alldocube iPlay 40 tablets can be a great choice for consuming content, browsing, visiting social sites, working in the office, watching movies, and other similar everyday tasks. The device has its own built-in LTE modem, a sophisticated large display, 8GB of RAM, and an Android 10 operating system, and even the price is not dangerous.
The Alldocube iPlay 40 was announced at the end of 2020, the current year of construction can be partially seen on the tablet. The corners are rounded, but the edges of the screen seem a bit thicker than on a Huawei Matepad. In between there is a 10.4 inch IPS touchscreen display with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels, which results in a pixel density of 224 ppi. The competition from Huawei is on the same level. On the edge, there is a front camera with a 5-megapixel resolution.
A look at the back reveals the 8 MP main camera in the upper left corner, which is a bit more present than on other tablets. The iPlay 40 is kept very simple in gray, the frame is made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy, which should give the tablet a little more stability. The manufacturer identifies the individual buttons and ports on the back, such as the hybrid SIM slot on the left side of the device. The Alldocube iPlay 40 weighs 474 g with dimensions of 248.1 x 157.9 x 8.3 mm.
Alldocube surprises us with the choice of the processor in the iPlay 40. Because this is where the UNISOC T618 Octca-Core processor lands on the board with a clock frequency of up to 2 GHz. The chip is also in the Teclast M40, but also in the 4G version of the ZTE Axon 20. There is also a proud 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of mass storage, which can even be expanded using a microSD card. It’s great that Alldocube didn’t skimp on this. Thanks to the Mali G52 GPU, semi-demanding games should also be playable on it. A specially adapted operating system based on Android 10 runs on the tablet.
The battery capacity of 6,000 mAh is smaller than that of the Huawei Matepad. Thanks to the relatively energy-efficient 12nm chip, the manufacturer specifies a video playback time of up to 10 hours. With streaming, however, the runtime is reduced to seven hours. It is charged via the USB-C port on the bottom of the tablet. Without a test, however, we don’t know whether the iPlay 40 offers Widevine Level 1 and can therefore reproduce video streaming content in FullHD.
The Alldocube iPlay 40 can draw attention to itself with its connection options. Dual-Band ac-WiFi, Bluetooth 5, GPS, LTE Band 20 and Band 28; as well as USB-C and 3.5 mm jack are not a matter of course. In addition, there are even four speakers that harmonize with an internal amplifier chip. For those who don’t use the software, Alldocube is a Chinese digital brand and focuses on Android tablets; Windows 2-in-1 PCs, MP3 and MP4 players, e-books, and more. Previous models in the iPlay series of tablets include iPlay 8 Pro, 10 Pro, iPlay 20, and the recently launched iPlay 30.
With a look at the datasheet, the Alldocube iPlay 40 ticks a tick in almost every box. Solid processor, lots of memory, connection standards, high-resolution display, and nice extras. We can buy it from Banggood at $184.99 in Flash Sale.
