There are many of us who just use their tablets to catch up with their favorite TV shows or keep their kids engaged, and for these purposes, a high-end tablet is nothing but an overkill. For our daily use, we need nothing more than an entry-level slate with a large display and decent performance, and Alldocube has made exactly that with the M5X Pro. The tablet offers plenty of storage and memory along with a high-res screen, while you also have the option to connect to an LTE network.
Here is everything that you need to know about the Alldocube M5X Pro, including its specifications, prices, availability, and some alternatives.
- 10.1-inch 2K IPS display
- Deca-core MediaTek Helio processor
- 4GB RAM + 128GB ROM
- 6600mAh battery
- Android 8.0 Oreo
- Dual-band Wi-Fi
- Dual-SIM card, 4G LTE
- Micro- USB port
- Headphone jack
Alldocube M5X Pro: The Basics
Targeted at the entry-level segment, the tablet doesn’t offer any fancy stuff, but the basics appear done right. Over at the front, you’re getting a spacious 10.1-inch IPS display that has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. There isn’t anything particular to write home about the Alldocube M5X Pro’s build, and you should expect a general outline with normal-sized bezels. It appears to be available only in the white color option that has a silver back. As for the port situation, you have a micro USB connector for charging and data syncing along with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.
On the inside, the tablet is powered by a 10-core MediaTek processor that is paired with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which you can double using a microSD card. It is worth noting that you’ll be getting the now-ancient Android 8.0 Oreo version out of the box, which isn’t likely to be updated either. This is a limitation that makes the tablet usable only for tasks that won’t particularly need a newer OS version. Your usual entertainment and web browsing apps should be fine for a few more years.
You have the option to add not one but two 4G-enabled SIM cards, allowing you to stay connected even when you don’t have access to Wi-Fi. When in office or home, you can latch onto a dual-band Wi-Fi, while you also have support for Bluetooth. The slate comes with a battery capacity of 6600mAh and two speakers with their separate amplifiers. For snapping photos and making video calls, you also get a pair of cameras both on the front and back.

Availability & Pricing
Alldocube is based in China, so you’ll have to import their products if you live outside the Asian market. Thankfully, websites like AliExpress* and Banggood* are shipping this tablet worldwide for a price of under $170, though stocks have exhausted on the latter. GearBest* is also selling the Alldocube M5X Pro, but for a marked-up price of about $250. You can shop the tablet from any of these stores and it should reach you within a few weeks.
Alldocube M5X Alternatives
Lenovo showcased a couple of tablets running Android and Chrome OS at the recently concluded CES conference, which are worth checking out. The Smart Tab M10 2nd-gen, Chromebook Duet, and the 10e Chromebook Tablet aren’t immediately available but should be out in their due timeline. If you want to pick a tablet right now, then look no further than the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 (review), which is an excellent choice for under $200.
Apart from these, we have the Amazon Fire HD 10 (review) that was recently refreshed with better features and internals without any change in its cheap price. On a bit premium end, the Apple iPad 7 (review) is an excellent choice that won’t disappoint you, especially if you pick it up during a sale for $250. In addition to that, we can recommend checking out the Galaxy Tab S5e (review).
Alldocube M5X ProThe Alldocube M5X Pro is one of the very few devices to come with a 2K display in its price range, which should be great for consuming content. Plus, you're getting support for 4G LTE over two SIMs, making it great for productivity on the go, but only for basic tasks. Its software is particularly old and stands out as the weakest point.
