IPS stands for in-plane switching. An IPS-LCD is a type of thin display that provides better viewing angles than TFT-LCDs. IPS-LCDs feature two transistors for each pixel, where TFT-LCDs use just one. This requires a more strong backlight, which provides more accurate colors, and enables the screen to be viewed from a wider angle. The downside is that an IPS-LCD may consume more power than a TFT-LCD. IPS-LCDs typically are found on high-end cell phones and portable devices. Apple’s iPhone and iPad both feature IPS-LCDs, so does Nexus 7 tablet.
This Dragon Touch R8 Tablet has a razor-sharp HD screen, slight weight, ultra-smooth performance, gratifying battery life, micro SD, and this price makes it an inexpensive “Android iPad mini” on the marketplace. Android 4.3 is not available on it for now.
Compared to other tablets, the back is missing the soft grippy texture, screen colors are bright but a little accuracy lack, charging the tablet takes a bit long. Astonishing performance and cheap price offers this tablet the expertise to be a shiny star in the marketplace. Most people like iPad mini because it is small enough to hold in one hand and potent enough for daily entertainment.
The design of this tablet is a replication of iPad mini, without the physical home button. The resolution is the same as iPad mini (1024×768). The brightness of this Dragon Touch R8 is better than iPad mini while the accuracy of the colors is not as splendid as the iPad mini, which is kind of hard to notice unless you have both with the same picture in hand.
This Dragon Touch R8 has a Quad Core processor each operating at 1.8GHz, which is a higher total calculation frequency than iPad mini. Furthermore, this tablet is equipped with 1GB RAM to accelerate loading and running of applications, compared to 512MB from iPad mini. The android system operates smoothly on R8, thanks to the high frequency of the quad-core processor.
A 0.3 Mega pixels front facing camera is not as sharp as iPad mini but good enough for video chatting the rear camera has 2.0 Mega pixels as the same of iPad mini but the sharpness is still not as good. If you just need to photo daily scenarios and post on your facebook, the R8 is good enough.
The micro-SD card slot support 32GB sd card, which cost around $20-25 on Amazon, so total storage would not be a problem. R8 has a mini HDMI port so you can browse the display on your Smart TV and watch youtube with better resolutions. Android 4.2 does provide more user-friendly interface when connected with your laptop computer so you can search and install applications via your Computer when you need a bigger screen, transfer and store photos and data files.
