Hyderabad based Smartron is an organization founded in the year 2014, the company has got a pretty simple focus – to create market disruptions with the help of its innovative product offerings. This completely ‘Made in India’ company recently launched its Smartron t.book which is an incredibly elegant 2-in-1 that is ideal to stretch the boundaries of mobility for any user segment.
Smartron t.book, is a 2-in-1 tablet that comes with a mid-range price and delivers on great expectations that a user may have when it comes to unique combination of hardware and software. We have been reviewing this product for over two months.
It has helped us expand our boundaries to achieve unprecedented mobility – so whether it is work activities or personal tasks, we have used it in different spheres of activities and truly impressed with this interesting form factor.
This is an ideal muti-tasking gadget for consumers as well as business users.
As in today’s convergence-friendly world – boundaries of work and personal life are increasingly getting blurred. Working professionals yearn for gadgets which can help them take care of personal stuff, while consumers look such devices which can help them in their professional activities. This is where such a device can be a big boon to users.
The Smartron t.book is certainly visually striking and most importantly it can also match up and even better (with its extremely agile and mobile form factor) the traditional PC hardware from established players in the market.
Premium Looks, Elegant Feel
This device has a premium look and feel. According to the company t.book body is built out of magnesium and aluminium. While reviewing this product, we found this to be extremely handy and easy to carry. However, we did notice that it has an incredibly glossy screen which is quit reflective. This can be a distraction if you use this in too much of light.
This devices scores well over other counterparts when it comes to delivering balance while a user is on to go – below the orange panel on the back side is a U-shaped leg which can be used to balance the device on a table. The good part is that it is quite easy to bend and is flexible too.
The device comes with microSD card slot, two full-sized USB 3.0 ports, a Micro-HDMI video output. It also has an additional USB Type-C port which is placed on the left of this device. The Type-C port in this device also doubles up as the charger. The company is shipping a 36W charger with the t.book.
Delivering unique mobility and stretching functionality of this product, the keyboard of this tablet can be easily attached onto the bottom of this tablet magnetically and stays firmly in place.
Specifications and Software Performance.
The t.book comes with an Intel Core M-5Y10C processor. A user also gets 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel webcam with this device. It comes with a 64-bit copy of Windows 10 Home, and the standard 30-day free trial of Microsoft Office package.
The keyboard of this device turned out to be really good – the keys are certainly better than what we have seen and experienced with other such accessories in other tablets in similar category. The keyboard layout is also designed, keeping in mind the comfort of the user. We feel that none of the keys are too small or cramped in this keyboard and hence it is quite easy to type at your own pace.
As far as the performance of this tablet is concerned, we ran a lot of applications and games and found that there was no lag in its performance for most day-to-day work and personal activities.
The battery of this tablet delivers very good performance and lasted a very long time – we charged it once and worked our way through the daily activities for almost the end of the day.
This Smartron t.book is a device that has mobility written all over it. It’s unique color, touch and feel, makes it quite special and there’s nothing like it in the market at this price point right now. And most importantly, as a user, it feels really great to have something like this come out completely from India.
