Dragon Android tablet

REVIEW – Some time ago, I tested and reviewed my first Dragon tablet and have been using it for leisure ever since. It has been a consistent performer and even filled in for teleschooling for my kids on a few occasions when no laptop was available. Now I get to test the Dragon Touch MAX10 Plus QLED Android tablet.

What is it?

The Dragon Touch MAX10 Plus QLED Android tablet features a 10.1 inch 1920×1200 FHD Screen, a Quantum Dot Resolution, an Octa-Core Processor, 3GB of RAM, and  32GB of storage. It runs on Android 10.0.

Performance

Whenever I write reviews of devices like Android tablets, I usually go through explaining the basics of charging first, and then I sometimes show snapshots of the start-up screens. This time I have decided not to bore with those repetitive details.

Once the tablet is charged, the start-up is exactly the same as with any other Android device. The first thing I noticed and liked about this tablet is the lack of bloatware. The following screen shows what apps it comes with:


As I expected, this tablet sets up easily and the process was flawless. Also as expected I was very pleased with the performance of every function that I tried. Unlike the previous model, this tablet comes with Bluetooth 5.0, and it works well.  By now, most of the readers who check out my reviews know that I am not a gamer, so I cannot speak much about the performance of the tablet for games. However, I am guessing that it will work well for games with requirements that match. The audio and video performance is good and it works well whenever any of my kids need a loaner for teleschooling. The touch screen is quite responsive.

The following is a screen recording showing the video resolution while I watch TV via the Optimum TV Altice One app:

The following is an audio recording of the included FM radio feature using the built-in recording capability:

As I mentioned in my previous review of a Dragon tablet, I never use a tablet for photography. However, the following are 2 photos taken using the front and back cameras:

What I like

  • The size of the display
  • The build quality and feel of the device
  • The screen resolution and the display it provides
  • The storage expansion slot
  • The overall performance

What I’d change

  • Nothing at this price point

Final thoughts

This is the second Dragon Touch Android tablet that I have tested and reviewed. As I mentioned during the first review, I am someone who uses the Apple ecosystem every day, and I had not been a fan of the Android OS for years. After being pleasantly surprised by the overall performance of the first one, I must say that I am even more pleased with this tablet. At this price, IMHO, this is a win. Well done!!

Price: $169.99

  1. Gadgeteer Comment Policy - Please read before commenting
  2. The “Latest Android” system is not 10. Android 11 has been out for nearly a year and 12 is already in Beta release. Is this tablet upgradeable?

  3. I am mostly interested in the FM radio feature. Being able to record the radio at a set time would be nice. I purchased and returned a Lenovo P11 because the radio app didn’t work.
    Looks like the cameras are both in the middle of the long side of the tablet. The back camera with flash is nice too. Not common on tablets.
    Would like to see more built-in storage.
    Nice review. Thanks!
