HARDWARE TESTS

Storage and RAM Memory

We perform our usual memory tests and internal storage in the Binai G10Max using the SD bench app, we can expand the internal storage of the system using the slot for the microSD card. The results are good.

  • Storage: Total 32GB / Available 25GB
  • RAM: Total 3 GB / Available 1.8 GB / DDR3L
  • microSD: 32 MB/s reading / 22 MB/s writing.

Battery and temperature

Installed in the Binai G10Max tablet we have a battery of 8000 mAh, the autonomy is correct if we do not demand high performance to the CPU with the brightness of the screen in between, if we play powerful games the battery drops quickly.

  • Battery recharge: 2 hours, only indicates maximum load until 85%

We check the performance of the tablet in scenarios of maximum sustained performance and in its usual use, we use a stress app for fifteen minutes and thermal camera to detect hot areas.

  • Loss of performance: the system maintains a maximum performance of 77%, there is no appreciable loss
  • Temperature: The rear part gets hot in one zone

Sensors, modem, radio and GPS

The modem installed by default in the Binai G10Max tablet is quite limited in bands so its use is restricted to areas with very good coverage since in interior areas we will not have much signal.

  • Bands: GSM 800/900/1800/1900MHz – FDD LTE: B1/B3/B7 – TDD LTE: B38/B39/B40/B41
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, GPS with precision 16m, Compass NO
  • Radio: Available by connecting headphones

WIFI and Bluetooth

In Wi-Fi connections, the Binai G10Max tablet has a Wi-Fi ac Dual Band wireless adapter with which we connect to an ASUS RT-AC1200G+ Router, a mid-range device. We perform tests on the use of streaming using the iPerf measurement tool to see the maximum performance of each network adapter.

  • Wifi speed results: Correct speeds for this type of adapters.
  • Scope Wifi: At a distance of 5 meters with a wall we have a signal of 70 dBm, a very poor result.
  • Bluetooth: Works correctly and connects without problems
  • We recommend reading our Tutorial SAMBA on Android networks if we are going to use files from our network PC

PERFORMANCE TEST

SOC

In terms of performance, the Binai G10Max tablet has quite good results thanks to the new Mediatek Helio X20 SoC (MT6797) and the power of the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU. If we compare the results we can see how it is close to the Rockchip RK3399 and surpasses the Snapdragon 425, but is far from the powerful Kirin 960 model.

Opinion

As we can see in the results of our review, the Binai G10Max tablet is an interesting product by his Mediatek Helio X20 (MT6797) Deca Core SoC that runs Android quickly and smoothly. Another interesting point is its screen 2.5K IPS screen that gives us a feeling of very solid use in image. The design and finishes of this product is quite basic since it competes in price with its rivals, it is necessary to emphasize the lateral frames that are quite reduced and his light weight.

The Binai G10Max tablet as we have seen has a correct storage speed, has GPS, Radio and 4G-LTE modem although is limited in bands. As weak points we must highlight the short life of your battery in demanding scenarios, the rather low Wi-Fi range and the speakers that really work in mono. In general a product of basic range that can be good for us if what interests us is to have a powerfull and a pretty decent screen as key points.
