ALLDOCUBE has released the ALLDOCUBE iPlay 20S, a 10.1-inch Android tablet. It is a lower-end model of the iPlay 40, which has become popular as a tablet with a high-performance CPU, and has similar specifications to the existing iPlay 20 and iPlay 20 Pro models. As I wrote at the beginning of this article, there are two previous models of tablets named ALLDOCUBE iPlay 20: iPlay 20 and iPlay 20 Pro.
In this way, I feel that “there is no need to change the product name. I think. Also, considering the CPU performance, is it really necessary to have three different models with different RAM and storage? I’m not sure. However, the OS version has been changed due to the new release date. There are still very few Chinese Android tablets with Android 11, and as far as I know, this is the first one.
As for the performance, as mentioned above, I think it will be almost the same as the iPlay 20 and iPlay 20 Pro. iPlay 20 has been reviewed on Wintab, with an Antutu Ver.8 score of 108,000. Well, it’s not suitable for gaming. If you want to enjoy gaming, you’d better get the higher-end iPlay 40. If you want to enjoy gaming, you should get the higher-end iPlay 40.
The display is a 10.1-inch WUXGA resolution, and the iPlay 20 reviewer praised the color performance, so we can expect the same for the 20S. However, WideVine is supposed to be L3, so I don’t think you can watch NetFlix or Amazon Prime Video in high quality (HD quality) (YouTube is fine). It is the same as the other iPlay 20 series in terms of LTE support, minimal but front and rear cameras, and 6,000mAh battery capacity.
At first, I thought “Banggood must have made a mistake”, but alldocube has a Japanese product page for this product (though most of the description is in English), and even if you look at it, the size is still different from the iPlay 20/20 Pro! …. The weight is the same, but the depth (short side) is totally different, and the thickness is also different…
The iPlay 20/20 Pro is designed to be held vertically, while the iPlay 20S is designed to be held horizontally. Also, the design of the back is different. The back of the device is made of metal. In addition, the speaker is located on the bottom of the device when held horizontally, as opposed to the bottom of the device when held vertically on the iPlay 20/20 Pro. I think the iPlay 20S’s speaker position is preferable since most of the time you will be using it horizontally when watching videos.
In our review of the iPlay 20, we said that the speakers were stereo. The manufacturer claims that the iPlay 20S has stereo speakers as well, so it seems that the iPlay 20S does not have the “stereo speakers but actually mono” pattern that is often seen in Chinese tabs. This is the first sentence in the manufacturer’s PR image. Now I think I understand why it’s called “Let’s Get Horizontal”.
