The SPC Glow 10.1 3G is the first tablet of the Spanish company with 3G capabilities. It is a computer with a standard size of 10.1 inches which allows you to make calls through the device or connect in any place that has mobile coverage. This tablet has a set of specifications very balanced between a dual core processor, a rear camera with 5 megapixels resolution capable of recording video in Full HD or HDMI port to display HD content on TV is included. All with a fine, thin white forms that follow the guidelines of the latest branded equipment. This tablet can be found already in the market for a price of 250 euros. Here is the detail in an in-depth analysis.
The SPC Glow 10.1 3G is a tablet that enters the eye. It has a fairly compact dimension of 16.1 x 25.8 x 0.8 inches to facilitate their grip, and have nothing to envy in a matter of finesse to large market launches. Yes, its 600 grams of weight are somewhat higher than we are used to seeing on the proposals in recent months. By its forms and especially the chosen color, this tablet is very reminiscent of Apple iPad Mini. Within its screen we found a differential touch on any other Android devices. It is the inclusion of two more buttons on the bottom of the panel that will serve to lower and raise the volume (normal is find three buttons).
Speaking of the panel, this is a touch screen IPS 10.1 inch with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. It is not a very high figure but let us see the contents of Android with an acceptable level of detail. In addition, the IPS technology provides a good viewing angle to enjoy the tablet from different positions. Finally, it is noteworthy that SPC has also sought to improve the strength of the team by an anti scratch glass.
In the field of memory, a basic internal memory of 8 GB has been incorporated. It is sufficient if we make a standard usage of the equipment, but if we are users which stored numerous multimedia files probably we have to lay our hands on a MicroSD card of up to 32 GB (for a total capacity of 40 GB). In tale of strength, we have tried to improve the performance of the team through a quad-core processor with a power of 1.2 GHz and 1 GB RAM. This set is enough to run smoothly menus Android, and also offer good performance in apps and games that do not require many resources. Yes you can notice more limitation on the most powerful games, but most of the time we use simpler tools.
This is one aspect that has more care SPC when you consider that this is an affordable tablet. And the Spanish company has strengthened the tablet with a rear camera with flash and a resolution of 5 megapixels. On the other hand, in the front also have a camera with a resolution of 2 megapixels which should give a good performance when using applications like Skype or videoconferencing Hangouts.
The SPC Glow 10.1 3G bid for Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2 operating system. Google’s operating system has a broad ecosystem of applications that exceed one million in its official store. It has also reached an important maturity that allows us to enjoy quality titles in all possible fields, from games like Angry Birds or Candy Crush Saga productivity apps like Evernote or Kingston Office, through social networks like Facebook or Twitter or aggregators News and Flipboard.
This universe is also enhanced with the specific apps that Google has deployed, such as Gmail for email, Google Maps to navigate your car or voice assistant Google Now to receive customized information through cards. This tool learns from our use of Google searches and refines the data offered. For example, if we passed a bus stop automatically get a card with the schedules of that stop.
Undoubtedly, the strong point of this tablet is its connectivity options. As stated earlier, this is a tablet with 3G connectivity. That means we can both talk on the tablet (although it is a bit cumbersome to use a device of this size as a phone) and connect to the Internet anywhere there is mobile coverage. In addition, the SPC Glow 10.1 3G MicroSIM includes a SIM slot and another normal to combine two different lines (e.g. phone life and MicroSIM with a contracted rate data). The maximum speed that is reached is of 42 Mbps on HSDPA networks.
As usual, we can also connect to the network via WiFi. We also have Bluetooth 4.0 connection for transmitting information to compatible equipment such as wireless speakers, GPS to navigate through the car or Miracast support. This technology serves to reproduce in real time the contents of the tablet directly on the TV without connecting any cable (yes, it is necessary that the two devices are connected to the same WiFi network). Physical connections include an HDMI port and a slot for MicroSD cards up to 32 GB.
