REVIEW: Teclast T30 with Mediatek Helio P70 SoC and 10.1 ″ IPS OGS screen
Teclast T30 It is the new tablet that we will see today in its analysis or review. A tablet with a good screen 10.1 ″ inch IPS OGS and that has the interesting SoC Mediatek Helio P70, an Octa Core with Cortex-A73 and A53 cores that has some interesting specifications for this range of products. This tablet has 4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 64 GB eMMC 5.1 internal storage, Wifi chip aC + BT4.1, a very neat design and the system Android 9 Pie. In the following analysis we will check how this new tablet defends itself and how it is compared to direct competition.
You can watch the video below unboxing of Teclast T30 where we describe all the details of the package content. You have more videos in our YOUTUBE CHANNEL where we always hang our latest news.
The tablet Teclast T30 It has a body with an aluminum rear area and plastic edges with a solid and careful design, it stands out for its weight, which indicates that it really has a large battery. It has quite narrow frames, in the front we have a camera of 5MP, Charging LED, light and proximity sensor, we also have two microphones. At the top we have with two speakers integrated, mount a rear camera of 8MP con flash and at the top it has a slot for microSIM + microSD. We also have a jack de audio that behaves normally and without noise.
- Speakers and microphone: Two speakers loud sound and some distortion at max. / Correct microphones.
- Vibration and LEDs: IF it has vibration / If it has a charging LED.
The screen of 10.1 ″ IPS OGS from Teclast T30 it has good brightness for indoors and suffers outdoors where it does not have enough light output, the minimum level at night is very high and it can be annoying. The beveled outer glass is glued to the screen (OGS) and gives us a very good visibility, a very good screen for multimedia home use or for browsing. Perhaps the sensitivity of the touch control it is not as thin as in other tablet models.
- Size and format: 10.1 ″ IPS OGS / 1920 × 1200 / 16:10.
- Light power: YES automatic brightness / High contrast / No light leakage on the sides.
- Viewing and Touch Angles: Correct IPS OGS type. / Precision and sensitivity at medium level.
- Screen and protection settings: Color modes in settings / Eye comfort screen protection in quick settings.
Cameras, Sensors, Modem and GPS
The cameras from the tablet Teclast T30 sound of medium quality, they have very few options in the settings and it surprises us without being able to choose 16: 9 format to take photos, only 4: 3. The built-in flash it’s more for anecdotal than actual use. The GPS behaves normally and triangulates the position without problem, the modem it has few bands.
- Rear camera: Sensor con 8MP+flash, colores apagados / Video 1080p.
- Front camera: 5MP sensor, slightly blurry image / 720p video.
- Location: GPS with good precision.
- Sensors: Accelerometer
- Modem: FDD-LTE: B1,B3 / TD-LTE: B39, B40, B38 y B41
SYSTEM AND PERFORMANCE
Android environment and system
We start the tablet Teclast T30 and we see what comes with the system Android 9.0 cleansed. In a basic use to navigate and consume multimedia content, moves very fluidly and we can use the most common apps without problems with the SoC Mediatek Helio P70, Maybe it lacks a bit of smoothness when scrolling in the chrome browser, but it is not critical. In the lower area we have the classic Android buttons that we cannot hide, in the upper area we have the curtain with shortcuts. We also have control of manual turn in the bottom bar an extra Android 9, but pan control is backwards by default, the camera in many apps is down, something to correct in an update.
- Launcher: We can change the launcher / Android UI render to 1920 × 1200.
- Multitasking and access: Multi-task control in bottom bar / IF has PiP support.
- Languages and Google Play: Spanish and all the classics of international Android / Google Play installed.
- Version and root: Android 9 (64 bit) / It is NOT root by default / It does NOT have a root menu.
- Medium: Teclast has a website and some OTA update / Firmware NOT available / Custom firmware NOT available.
Network, storage, RAM and ports
We perform our usual tests on the memory and internal storage in the Teclast T30. Internal storage can be expanded using the included microSD card reader. The results of the storage internal are very good compared to other tablets of its price. The reaching Wifi on the 5G band it could be better but in general it is good for normal use.
- Storage: Total 64GB – Libre 53GB eMMC 5.1 / NTFS + exFAT compatible / SI ampliable por SD.
- RAM: Total 4 GB – Free 3 GB / LPDDR4X.
- Network performance: Correct Speed / Range 40 dBm, correcto. / Bluetooth OK.
- We recommend reading our Tutorial on SAMBA Networks on Android if we are going to read files from our networked PCs.

Power and performance
At the power level the Teclast T30 has with the SoC Mediatek Helio P70 Octa Core (MT6771T) featuring a cluster of 4 ARM CPUs Cortex-A73 high performance capable of reaching 2.1Ghz and another cluster with four ARMs Cortex-A53 that reach a maximum speed of 2 Ghz. An SoC made in 12nm FinFET that has little consumption and some low temperatures still demanding performance in powerful games. At the level of games we can play demanding games like PUBG at medium / high level.
- Games and emulators: Compatible with games like PUBG medium-high quality / Emulators up to Wii / SI supports Vulkan.
Battery and temperature
The Teclast T30 has a battery of 8000 mAh, autonomy is high in normal mixed use and using the screen brightness at medium level. If we play demanding games, the battery drops more quickly as normal, but in general we have very good figures, it is worth highlighting the autonomy when on standby which is very high and can last for days.
- Battery recharge: Charge at 5V 2.5A, it takes about 3 hours to fully charge.
- Repose: Connected to Wi-Fi and unused, it can last 12 days or more.
- Performance: The performance in the stress test drops a lot because the SoC goes into protection, but in games it works well.
- Temperature: The rear gets hot at the end where the SoC is located but very little.
VIDEO AND AUDIO TEST
Video and audio connections
Regarding the video playback the Teclast T30 has a VPU compatible con codecs h.265 y h.264 for resolutions maximum up to 4K 8bit, has no support HDR and has codec support VP9 P1 up to 1080p or 4K @ 30fps. We can use widgets like code The PLEX correctly. At the audio level we can reproduce sound DD y DTS but only in stereo with the audio jack. See our Mediatek Helio P70 SoC Comparison to see more details about Audio / Video on this SoC.
- Video adjustments: NO image quality controls in settings / NO automatic refresh.
- Audio settings: Stereo jack.

- The maximum bitrate depends on the port used to connect or the limitations of the SAMBA Networks.
- SW = does not have hardware acceleration and may have some occasional jump in very large files.
We carry out our usual tests on the streaming services to see how popular services work. The Teclast T30 presents the classic configuration without certificates Which limits us in quality in various streaming services and by not having notification bars also presents some problem with this type of configuration.
CONCLUSIONS AND PURCHASE LINK
Design and connectivity

Once all the tests have been carried out at the Teclast T30 We can say that it is a very interesting tablet for its price. In this model we have the SoC Mediatek Helio P70 Octa Core with cores Cortex-A73+A53 which has a very controlled consumption, in addition to the GPU ARM Mali-G72 MP3 that allows us to run powerful games at a good level. We have a pretty good performance at the Wi-Fi level but in the 5G band it could be better. At the level of finishes we have a solid feeling, the screen glass bevels The top and the aluminum at the rear convey a good feeling.
The Teclast T30 has a screen IPS OGS 10.1 ″ that we can use comfortably indoors, it gives us a very good image quality, perhaps the minimum power is too strong for the night. One of the strengths of this tablet is the battery duration, the SoC controls the energy consumption a lot, the sleep mode gives us autonomy for many days and consumes little in normal use, without a doubt a significant improvement compared to other Mediatek SoCs.
Without a doubt the Teclast T30 stands out for the battery life, power and finishes, a model that can be interesting for home use, for multimedia playback or to play any demanding title without problems.
