Teclast T30: The Basics

With its back made from metal, the Teclast T30 has a premium build while a sheet of 2.5D glass covers most of its front. The tablet flaunts a 10.1-inch full HD IPS display that has eyes-protecting features and is surrounded by thin bezels. On one of its sides, the tablet has a pogo-pin connector for docking magnetic keyboards. The keyboard that Teclast released has a trackpad placed on the keyboard deck allowing you to get some actual work done.

A version of Teclast’s software based on Android 9 Pie comes preloaded on the tablet. The company also has included some software features like split-screen that further improve multitasking; and yes, Google Play Store is supported. An octa-core MediaTek P70 chipset, that includes an improved Mali-G71 MP3 GPU, powers the tablet. It is paired with 4GB of RAM while its internal storage stands at 64GB with an option to expand it further. Its eyes protection feature works by measuring your distance from the tablet and warns you when you get too close.

Like many Teclast products, the T30 also supports 4G LTE connectivity and offers voice calling over VoLTE. It offers the standard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options as well. The company has included an 8000mAh battery which is rated to offer 11 hours of backup and charges via a Type-C port. You are still getting the good-old audio jack while there is an 8MP camera sitting on its back along with a 5MP front-facing one.

Availability & Pricing

Teclast launched the T30 tablet last week with sparse availability details for the time being. For the pricing, the company announced an official price tag of 1299 yuan which roughly translates to $184. However, it is currently retailing only on Gearbest at a significantly higher price of $297.74. Other websites like AliExpress and Banggood have yet to make their listings live for the Teclast T30. More details on its pricing are expected to be available soon.

Teclast T30 Alternatives

The sub-200 USD segment is populated with a handful of tablets for you to consider. The easiest one to recommend is the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 (review) which offers a decent set of features for its price. Teclast also launched the M30 tablet recently and it can also be a fine replacement to the T30, although it doesn’t have a pogo-pin connector. People living in the western markets have access to the Amazon Fire HD 10 (review) which is an inexpensive device that can get a lot done.

While you can connect a Bluetooth keyboard with any tablet, not all sport a magnetic connector. If a keyboard attachment is must for you then you can also look at the Teclast F5 (review) that is more of a laptop running Windows 10 OS. Then we have the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 (review) which has a detachable keyboard. The Galaxy Tab S5e (review) is an Android tablet which can be attached to a Samsung keyboard magnetically. Most of these with-keyboard solutions generally cost upwards of $400 and rarely they’ll even come close to the Teclast T30’s price.
