Performance and display
This is the fastest VOYO tablet up to date, equipped with deca-core Helio X20 processor. This Mediatek processor combines good performance and low power consumption. Popular Mali-T880 GPU efficiently renders 3D graphics, allowing you to play even latest games. 4 GB of RAM allows for efficient multitasking and 64 GB of internal memory can be extended with the TF card.
Large, ten-inch widescreen display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 px, making it ideal for watching movies, working with documents, or browsing social media. IPS technology provides a wide viewing angle of 170 degrees.
Cameras and battery
You’ll also find here quite nice cameras, which is unusual for tablets. The front camera has a 3.0MP lens and provides good teleconferencing capabilities and decent selfies (especially in good light), while 13.0MP rear cameras have powerful LED flash and fast autofocus that guarantee sharp pictures in high resolution with properly saturated colors. You can further enhance pictures using filters built in the tablet software.
The 5300 mAh cell is the best battery compared to previous models of VOYO tablets and allows approximately 5 hours of video playback, with 4 hours charging time.
VOYO i8 Max offers complete Internet access features, with a fast 2.4 GHz / 5.0 GHz WiFi dual channel connection. This allows you to connect to a wireless network at home or work at a maximum speed of up to 1 Gbit/s. And that’s not all – i8 Max also has a SIM card slot and this tablet supports 4G LTE internet band (FDD and TD) and mobile connectivity for 2G and 3G phone calls. For this reason, we should even call it a “phablet”, because it successfully combines the function of a phone and tablet – although ten-inch screen doesn’t make it very handy phone. Lastly, fast Bluetooth 4.0 allows for seamless connection to external devices – other tablets or telephones, as well as wireless speakers or smart TV.
Design and other features
This is quite sturdy device and has a metal casing. In terms of quality, it’s built like tablets made by its more expensive competitors. Only flaw is that it has a quite thick bezels around the screen. The most interesting and unusual element of the design is the rotating stand, which allows you to set the tablet in one of three modes: laptop, studio or tablet.
i8 Max will also work great as a graphic tablet, thanks to an active stylus detecting 2048 levels of pressure. It allows you to easily work in image processing, vector graphics or architectural design software. By attaching a Bluetooth keyboard with magnetic handle, you can also convert it into a full-sized laptop for office work. Unfortunately, these additional accessories are available separately and we recommend buying them on GearBest with the tablet. You can buy VOYO i8 Max on GearBest, Aliexpress or Banggood at attractive pre-sale price. Highly recommended!
