We call it Back to School even though we actually sometimes mean “I want the perfect excuse to buy new devices”. And it does not matter if you do it in September, in January or in the middle of summer. If you are looking for a tablet to study, to work or simply to take on a trip and devour the second season of Valeria in the long hours of the train, today we show you an economical and very solvent option. The Teclast M40 Pro bases its success on having been able to offer the user a complete product, with good performance and an affordable price.

Do you want to know it to know if, in your specific case, it will meet your expectations? Then keep reading.

Design of the Teclast M40 Pro

This tablet has dimensions of 243 x 163 x 9.3 mm and a weight of 529 grams. It is not small, nor the lightest on the market, but this is justified by the size of its screen. Their 10.1 inch They make it a model that will allow us to work, study, play or watch movies comfortably. If you asked us for advice, at this point in the game we would not tip the balance towards smaller tablets. Today, mobile phones have a diagonal, in most cases, more than 6 inches, so that 7 or 8-inch tablets seem to have fallen halfway to nowhere. The 10 inches do give us that “something else” that the mobile screen does not give us.

Continuing with its design, and beyond its size, we see almost minimalist lines. It is available in color Gray and, point to the contrary, on the front we appreciate more frames than we would like. Do you have something positive? Yes, you can grab it by the sides without fear of phantom pulsations. Also in these frameworks take advantage of Teclast to insert the lens of the front camera, which we will talk about in more detail later. The back is also smooth, with the logo of the brand in the central part and the camera module heeled in the right corner (if we look at it from behind, from the front).

As for the buttons and connections, looking at it from the front of the screen again, we have on the left side the volume keys + / – and the power button.

What can we expect from the hardware of this tablet?

Cheap tablets there are many. But tablets that offer good qualities that guarantee good performance can be a bit more complicated. It must be clarified, first of all, that this Teclast M40 Pro is not an advanced model. It is a simple, inexpensive tablet, and as such we cannot demand a display of premium range features.

The first thing that is worth noting is that it comes with a RAM memory of 6 GB and an internal storage of 128 GB. This storage can be expanded via microSD memory card. Its screen, in addition to being a good size, offers high brightness and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 px. It is not the best on the market, but it will meet your expectations. In addition, it has technology IPS so you can see it well from any angle. In this you will not have any problem.

We continue to bingo and now we have to talk about another of its strengths: its connectivity. Have WiFi 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0 and 4G. You can use it indistinctly with WiFi or with a data rate from your operator, whichever suits you best, depending on whether you are going to take it away from home or not.

Their cameras are 8 MP in the back and 5 MP on the front. If it is an important piece of information for you, keep it in mind, but we also warn you that tablet cameras are usually very modest and this case is no exception. Of course, it comes with microphone built-in and dual speaker. The sound is clear and loud.

As for your battery, we appreciate that you bring a charging port USB C, but it should be noted that, with average use, you will have to charge it daily. We would have appreciated a little more capacity, since the 6,000 mAh They can fall short if we give it continuous use.

Finally, mention that it has Android 11 as an operating system.

Worth? Taking into account that it is not going to be the best tablet, but that you are not going to pay three or four times more for it, it is a good option if you only want a tablet to read documents, play modest games from the Play Store, watch movies on Netflix or make video calls. However, if what you want is to work with programs that require greater power, design or the like, you are going to be a little short.
