I have taken a look at the China manufactured Android tablets lately and the Nextway F9X quad core tablet really caught my eye. The F9X runs on a quad-core Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex A7 chip plus it comes with an eye watering 2048 x 1536 resolution retina touch screen. You get all this at a price that is less than half the price of the cheapest iPad with Retina display.
Coincidentally (or maybe not), the Nextway F9X tablet has almost the same dimensions as the new iPad. The Netxway F9X measures 188 x 243 x 9.8mm while the iPad measures a fraction smaller at 186 x 241 x 9.4mmThat means that you can probably use an iPad screen protector and some other accessories like sleeves and casings on the F9X. I consider this a huge plus because looking for such accessories for China products is near impossible. Nextway may have just found the perfect solution to this problem.
The Nextway F9X also comes with both front and back cameras which is amazing for a sub $200 product. However, the front camera is only 0.3 MP and the back one is a miniscule 2.0 MP. I guess Nextway has to cut corners somewhere to hit that budget price. The battery is 8000 mAh which is quite decent. The A31 is quite a low powered chip and performs well in battery tests.
The rest of the specification is quite standard for a quad-core tablet. It comes with 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB of NAND for storage. Additional storage up to 32 GB can be added via a micro SD expansion slot. It has WiFi but no Bluetooth. Ports on the device include a micro USB port, a mini HDMI port, an audio jack and a 2.5mm DC input port for power.
If you are looking for a budget tablet that comes with decent specifications, give the Nextway F9X a look.
