ONDA V812 QuadCore 8" IPS Tablet

If you are looking for an excellent iPad Mini alternative with a very competitive  and cheap price tag, you're definitely looking at Onda's newest V812 Tablet. The very first 8" China MID Tablet packed with a powerful QuadCore Cortex A7 processor with an OctoCore PowerVR SGX544 graphics that is similar to latest iPad device. Its very good to see Onda taking the initiative to provide a low cost 8" Tablet powered with the latest Allwinner A31 Chipset is said to improve the Cortex A7 architecture offering a more efficient, more powerful than today's Cortex A9 processors.

Like Onda V972 Tablet, the Onda V812 Tablet also have a huge 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB or Storage plus a capability to add a microSDCard upto 32GB. Having a QuadCore processor, OctoCore graphics and 2GB of RAM will definitely withstand every known heavy Apps and Games created for Android as of today. Users can now simply enjoy the JellyBean 4.1 Android OS's multitasking without worrying to much of resources it needs. However, like other Allwinner A31 Tablets being offered as of now to Market, this Onda V812 lacks Bluetooth Connectivity as-well. You are forced to use BT Dongles if you usually need them.

Pandawill.com is already selling the Onda V812 Tablet for almost half the price of Apple's iPad Mini, you can them them for US$185.99 including a world-wide free shipping.

The screen resolution and front camera placement is absolutely similar to Apple's iPad Mini. It has a screen resolution of 1024x768 pixel good enough for reading ebooks and browsing web, although watching 16:10 or 16:9 HD movies will not fit well on this 4:3 screen. Onda is using the same Glass Screen Ainol and other China MID manufacturer is using, it has the same scratch resist/proof capability like Gorilla Glass screen but is not as hard as latter.

This Tablet is meant to be hold in portrait mode as it was design to it. 0.3MP Front Camera which can be useful for Video Calling is good but not as great as others with 2.0MP and can capture 720p videos.
This is one of the goodness being offered by having an IPS Screen Technology. Users can enjoy wider viewing angle without loosing much images and pictures quality plus it provides vivid and brighter colour rich display to screen. You won't have to max out your display brightness if you're just sitting and browsing the web inside your house or in a restaurant. Also, IPS Screen helps maintain good visibility under the sun when using Tablet outdoor is necessary.

Notice also the thickness and edges are very well designed. Good job to Onda maintaining the Tablet to look elegant.
The Shell case is using full Aluminium Material, something that makes me wonder how would the WiFi Connectivity will perform. Luckily, some early adapters of this Tablet already told us that the WiFi works well with NO to minimal connectivity issue.
Onda V812 has a 4,500mAh Battery Capacity and is said to provide 8hrs of usage, but some report already shown that it could only last 4~5hrs on Web Browsing and 3D Gaming. Not really bad at all.
I don't seems to like what we are seeing here. Both of the Back and Power Button are placed on the bottom near to mini-HDMI, micro-USB port and micro-SDCard slot. NO physical Volume Buttons.
The Rear Facing Camera is a 5.0MP with AutoFocus function Camera which can capture HD Videos and Photos. With LED Flash missing, the Camera is supposed to be good during Daytime or in a well lit room but not in Night or darker room. Anyways, it'll be surely useful to owners having a decent quality camera on the back of their Tablet.

Just above it is the Audio port and next to Audio port is the Monofiring LoudSpeaker which is not available in this picture. The speaker provides decent quality of sounds but cannot be compared to Stereo Speakers performance.
