Before we get into the review of this tablet, I want to say this immediately, I have went through almost four of these tablets and two of them were DOA. Pacific TECH quickly fixed the issue but it’s definitely worth pointing out. Also, I received these at a reduced price in exchange for my review. So let’s get into the review.
Check out my unboxing video, below:
Overall, when it is working and all, these tablets are a pretty decent tablet in this price range.
The back of these tablet have the Galaxy S5 bubbled look. On the back you will find “Pacific TECH Professional” near the top. The tablet itself it fairly thing and not heavy. There is only a small bezel around the tablet. They put the volume up/down buttons on the side of the tablet, as well as the power button. On the top right above the power button is the charging port. Most of the parts are cheap plastic. Here are a couple pictures below of the tablet:
This is an important one.
- Processor- This tablet has a quad core processor. Two cores running at 1.5 Ghz and the other at 1.2Ghz. Why? Better load optimization.
- GPU – The GPU on this tablet is still unknown. I asked Pacific TECH and they told me it is “a very fast a strong GPU”. Huh.
- RAM – 2GB of SDDR3.
How it runs? This tablet will run smoothly for most people. It played games easily, for example, Need for Speed.
Here’s the test and benchmark:
- Resolution – 1200×800. So this is an HD screen.The PPI is 149. They send a screen protector and case as well.
- The brightness can get very dim and decently bright, when it works. One of the tablets I received wouldn’t change brightness levels (even after factory reset).
- The tablet comes stock with 12GB of internal memory and they send a 32GB card with the tablet. Overall you get roughly 40GB of storage.
- Front Facing – 2MP camera. In my opinion the front facing camera is horrible. It is very slow and laggy, it also doesn’t pick up light well at all.
- Rear Facing – 5MP camera. As with the front facing cam, it is slow and unresponsive.
- Video – Rear facing camera can record at 1080P. The overall quality isn’t too horrible. Colors are faded a tad and sometimes the FPS is choppy.
- This tablet runs stock 5.0 Android.
- However, it has ported versions of Android dating back to the 4 series. It’s a bit odd.
Other internals and ports
- 3G GSM Support – The tablet has support for dual-sim GSM cards. I tested it out, all is good. Only it’s 3G, from nearly 10 years ago.
- WiFi (one of the tablets I received dropped WiFi on and off. They didn’t fix it, they just sent a new one.
- Battery – 5000 mAh. Lasts decently long, I have had one (that I am not using) on and on standby for nearly three weeks and it hasn’t died.
- Micro – USB charging interface
- 3.5mm Audio Jack, no complaints here.
If this written article hasn’t answered all your questions, you can see my video review, below:
So the verdict, this tablet could be a lot better. It has a long ways to go. It is based off of a generic Chinese tablet, the K970.
It has multiple flaws and problems but once it works, it’s a good tablet.
I give this a 2/5 for the simple fact I have had to replace it multiple times.

Hello all. Glad you could be here. My born year is 1995 and I have been raising hell ever since. By raising hell, I mean that I love to work on cars, computers, play video games (currently UFC 2), spend time with my family, and simply enjoy the little things. I love what I do and I do nothing else.
