Teclast M30: The Basics 

Most of the tablet’s front is dominated by a large 10.1-inch IPS display that is surrounded by relatively thin bezels. Depending on the variant you finally go for, you will get either full HD or QHD display resolution, both of which are in the 16:10 aspect ratio. Teclast has used a metal casing for the tablet which has been given a smooth finish using sandblasting. The Teclast M30 has two speakers but both reside on a single side. A 5MP camera sits on its back while a 2MP unit is placed on the opposite side for making video calls.

On the inside, a deca-core MediaTek Helio X27 processor is powering the budget tablet. Again, the RAM and ROM configurations will vary with the variant you’re looking at. The base model has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, besides an FHD display, while the upgraded model packs a 2K display along with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Both the variants support memory expansion via a microSD card. It comes running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. 

Apart from the standard dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, the 10-inch Teclast M30 also has 4G LTE connectivity. With the SIM card inserted, you can even make and receive calls but you’ll be needing a headphone since there is no earpiece onboard. Speaking of which, it has a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting wired headphones along with a USB Type-C port to charge its 7500mAh battery.

Teclast M30 Alternatives 

If you have some headroom in your budget, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 (review) stands strong as an excellent option. It has a good 1080p display and comes with the newer Android Pie-based One UI. In addition to this, the Huawei T5 10 (review) scored well in our review and it too has a variant with 4G LTE connectivity. The Lenovo Tab M10 (review) offers a clean OS experience with Android 8.1 Oreo which is great for people who abhor heavy UI skins.  

For just under $200, there is Teclast’s own T20 tablet (review) that has a specs sheet similar to the M30 but adds a fingerprint scanner on top of it. The Amazon Fire HD 10 (review) could be an excellent choice especially for people heavily invested in the Amazon ecosystem. Xiaomi’s Mi Pad 4 Plus (review) offers more or less the same specifications as the Teclast M30 but costs around $280.

Teclast M30

For well under the 200 USD mark, the Teclast M30 packs so much inside its thin profile. Its standout feature is the support for 4G LTE connectivity which also allows VoLTE calls. With its 10.1-inch up to QHD display, watching movies and TV shows should be a great experience making it a good option as a living room device. Plus, with the connectivity feature, it can be used even while on the go.
