Binai G808 Pro – A Cheap 8-Inch 4G LTE Android Tablet

There's been a tablet on the market for some time called Binai G808, but now a Binai G808 Pro tablet is out and it's pretty cheap all things considered, as it has a Full HD screen, 4G LTE, and 3GB of RAM, all for $139 at the time of the writing:

For the price, it is an interesting tablet for those in need of an always connected tablet that can also make phone calls. It reminds me a lot of the Alldocube X5, another 8-inch 4G tablet with Android although that tablet runs on a different octa-core MediaTek MT8783 processor.

The Binai G808 Pro on the other hand is powered by a octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor, with 3GB of DDR3L RAM, and 32GB of storage with 128GB microSD card support. The dual-SIM 4G LTE covers the usual 11 bands, and in reach of Wi-Fi networks it actually has a dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.0, which isn't bad for a budget tablet.

The 8-inch screen has a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution, and pen support. Don't know how long this tablet will be supported beyond the Android 7.0 that's installed, because it's modern in other regards, with a 13MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5MP front camera.

It's 8.2mm thick and weighs 575 grams, which isn't setting any records. It also has a mico-USB 2.0 port and 3.5mm audio jack. The battery life is the main irk when judging it by the specs, as the 4000 mAh battery can hardly give it more than a 5 1/2 hour battery life when watching videos. That's acceptable in a home tablet if you have USB outlets or chargers everywhere, but not ideal on a tablet with cellular capabilities. But then again that's what makes it possible for the Binai G808 Pro to be sold as a cheap budget tablet.
