Zenithink C94 QuadCore 10.1" Tablet

This is probably the Cheapest QuadCore 10.1" Tablet that China MID market has offered. Although being the cheapest sometimes doesn't help a Tablet to create an appealing taste to some enthusiasts. Zenithink knew all of that so I believe they've tried to produce a QuadCore Tablet that will surely have its place in the growing China MID market.

The new Zenithink C94 QuadCore 10.1" Tablet offers a QuadCore Freescale i.MX6Q 1.2GHz Cortex A9  processor with QuadCore Vivante GC2000 graphics which we've also found on Ampe A10 QuadCore 10.1" HD-IPS Tablet. But unlike Ampe A10 QuadCore which cost US$219.99, Zenithink C94 QuadCore doesn't have an HD-IPS display and a lower Battery Capacity of 5600mAh which is expected to serve 6hrs of continuous use. It also have a 1GB of DDR3 RAM and an 8GB of Flash Storage which are fine, one can always expand its storage using microSDCard on the Tablet's expansion slot. It also includes Wi-Fi B/G/N connectivity. The ads says it has latest JellyBean 4.1 Android OS installed but only IceCreamSandwich 4.0.4 is stated on the specs. We still have to confirm this later.

Zenithink C94 QuadCore 10.1" Tablet is available at for cheap price of US$179.99 including a world-wide free shipping.

Like we've said above, Zenithink didn't put an HD-IPS screen on this QuadCore device. Instead, they choose to use 1024x600px resolution with LED-TN panel which has lower viewing angles if compared to IPS screen or MVA screen but slightly better than ordinary TN Panels. We can also see the 0.3MP Front Facing Camera placed in the middle-top of the screen bezel, it should be fine for Video Calls.

On the bottom of the Tablet we barely notice the two LoudSpeakers located on each corner. We just hope it provides good quality of sounds so sharing musics and movies to our friends,relatives, and or love-ones during outdoor camping is possible. We still don't have any idea if Zenithink C94 uses a glass screen or a hardened plastic screen, but we hope it is Glass screen because it has high tolerance of scratch resist. Both should be good protecting the screen from unwanted scratches from everyday use.

The Back uses plain Plastic Shell material painted with matte white, it doesn't comes with any designs or anything to make the tablet more amusing. Just plain white with 2.0MP Rear Facing Camera placed in the middle-top which hopefully have a good quality of photos and videos. The Power Button and Volume rockers are placed in an uncommon location in the top-left corner (if we are looking at the back-shell). Near the interface buttons are the 3.5mm Audio port and the microSD expansion slot which supports max.32GB of microSDCard.

Just above the Power Button and Volume Rockers, you'll find the rest of Interface ports including (from left to right) 5V 2A Wall Charger port, tiny Reset hole, 2x microUSB which supposed to support OTG function for connecting any USB devices on the Tablet like external 3G-USB dongle or USB Flash drive, Zenithink also didn't remove the mini-HDMI port and should support Full-HD TV Panels for sharing your movies to a larger screen, and the tiny Microphone hole.

The Cons:
  • No IPS Screen - as we all know, IPS Screen gives such beautiful and vivid rich-color images for this cheap Tablets. If Zenithink is causing problems to keep the price lower, they could always use MVA screen like Ainol Novo7 Crystal DualCore 7" Tablet uses.
  • Low Battery Capacity - another negative effect of being the cheapest is the constraint on Battery Capacity. 5600mAh with expectation of 6-hours continuous usage might be good enough but having 7000~8000mAh of Battery Capacity is way much better and could add eye-candy for enthusiasts.
Anyway, I still beleive that the Zenithink C94 QuadCore 10.1" Tablet will surely have its place in the current market. And as for the performance, we don't have much any idea on how the QuadCore will performs but it should be better than RK3066 Tablets except on gaming compatibility.

I was looking at purchasing this tablet, but I think the limited battery life is a real drawback. Particularly when I am travelling on a long flight, I would want a tablet that offered more than a 6 hour maximum. However, the rest of the specifications aren't bad for the price that you can pick these up for.
