The tablet device market is so highly developed that you can find not only universal gadgets designed for different purposes, but also more specialized devices that have a certain narrow purpose. That's just the kind of device we'd like to talk about today. Meet this tablet Oysters T72HM 3G. As noted in the description provided on the website of the online store where it is sold, this device is intended for use by drivers as a GPS navigator.
About how well the device copes with this task, as well as in more detail about its characteristics, we will tell in this article. In parallel, we will also present to your attention the reviews left by users about this device.
Oysters T72HM 3G: appearance
Traditionally, it is customary to describe any electronic gadget, starting with its appearance. So, at least, we will be able to imagine the design of the tablet, what it is like from the outside. Regarding this issue, it should be said that the device looks like we are facing a typical inexpensive Chinese tablet. At least its front side clearly indicates this.
At the same time, on the reverse side of the devicelooks prettier because the entire surface of its back is divided into three sections, the middle of which is made of metal. This gives additional effect to the overall style of the device.
Inserts in the body of the model slightly improve the overall design, giving it that “high-cost effect” inherent in models from a higher class. At the same time, if you look closer, the Oysters T72HM 3G tablet does not belong to this. With the cost of the gadget at 2.5 thousand rubles (excluding the cost of mobile services), there is nothing surprising in this. It is obvious that the developer saved as much as possible on all components.
In addition to a brief description of appearance, I would like to pay attention to the set in which Oysters T72HM 3G is offered in the Megafon store. So, since this is a car tablet, it is expected that the developers have equipped it with a cord for charging from a car battery (through a “cigarette lighter” connection). Therefore, such a cable comes standard with the device.
In addition, speaking of software, it is important to note the presence of an additional package of navigation maps. With them, the driver will be able to navigate the terrain, because it is a navigator. The device comes with such sets as "Yandex.Navigator" and "Yandex.Maps". Obviously, MegaFon (a company that sells the device in its stores) has some kind of agreement with the software developer.
In addition to what was mentioned above, the tablet also includes a design for attaching it tocar. This is relevant, since everyone knows the problem of how to fix the navigator screen in the most convenient position.
Next, I would like to characterize the display of the device - the most significant element in the operation of the tablet. Since our version of the gadget, as noted above, was assembled with maximum savings in mind, you should not expect a high quality “picture” on its screen. On the contrary, the image here is more of a “budget” character, and the developers do not hide this. In addition to its not the highest definition (at a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels) and a 7-inch display, one can also note its low brightness on the negative side, which complicates the working conditions and interaction with it. As noted by the reviews, the Oysters T72HM 3G is a kind of “disposable” (in terms of damage) device. So, if you break the screen, it is pointless to think about replacement, since the cost of repair exceeds the total price of the device. In this case, it's easier to throw away the non-working device and purchase a new gadget.
The main “heart” of the device, its MediaTek MT8132C processor, has a clock frequency of 1.3 GHz. In total, two cores interact in the module.
In addition, we can note the work of the Mali-400 graphics accelerator, which is also responsible for drawing the picture.
In general, analyzing these indicators, we can call true reviews: Oysters T72HM 3G is really not the strongest equipment from a technical point of view. However, this does not prevent him from working successfully and performingall their tasks at the highest level.
Although we characterize a tablet computer that will be used in a car, the developers made a small “bonus” for buyers by equipping it with two cameras at once. In fact, this is the result of the fact that our Oysters T72HM 3G model (which firmware confirms this) was based on a classic variation of a tablet computer.
Therefore, roughly speaking, in the process of designing and assembling the device, no one thought that the gadget would not need cameras. Because of this, we can now work with two matrices (front and rear) with a resolution of 2 and 0.3 megapixels, respectively. The software and hardware equipment of the tablet allows you to talk about pictures with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 and various options like flash and videos. It turns out, if you try hard, you can turn the tablet navigator into a tablet recorder.
On the other hand, on the device, in addition to the standard Google maps present on all Androids, there is a software package from Yandex. It deserves special attention, because there are negative reviews about these programs on the network. Oysters T72HM 3G, according to them, can get confused in the city, show the wrong route or distance. All this negatively affects the general opinion about the device.
In addition to those presented, you can name other options available to gadget owners. For example, the ability to work with a SIM card. It means havingmobile 3G Internet support. The characteristics that describe the Oysters T72HM 3G also indicate the presence of 2 simultaneous SIMs. True, the logic of the developers in this case is not entirely clear: the device is blocked for one operator (MTS), so it will not work with other providers (at least, that's what the rules say).
The solution could be "tuning" your tablet and its "decoupling" from the operator. As the recommendations regarding the Oysters T72HM 3G show, unlocking the device so that it “sees” other operators is real. This will give you the opportunity to choose between different service providers, choosing more favorable rates.
It can also be noted that a computer from a reliable assistant on the road can turn into a full-fledged multimedia center if you know how to handle it. After all, he has all the necessary components for this. In particular, there is a slot for a memory card. With it, you can increase the amount of data stored on the device and download your favorite movies here, for example.
True, the negative point is the battery. Without connection to a car, the device will last literally 4-5 hours with a 2500 mAh battery.
If you believe what is indicated in the technical specifications, the model runs on the Android 5.1 operating system. This is not the newest version of this firmware, but under it (in the future) an update may be released for Oysters T72HM 3G. Thus, the interface will be improved and the entire logic of the OS operation will be simplified, like thisimplemented in the sixth generation of Android OS. In any case, there will be no problems with working on the device, since its “native” technologies are used here, to which each user is intuitively accustomed.
You can purchase the device, as noted above, on the website (store page) of the Megafon company. Here, opposite the Oysters T72HM 3G model, the price is 3290 rubles. They include: the cost of the model (2490 rubles) and the fee for connecting services, more precisely, the Internet S package. As promised on the site, it will be valid for several months, because it is profitable.
However, a significant disadvantage is the "binding" of the device to one operator, which excludes the transition to the services of another company (unless you use illegal methods of "decoupling").
In general, obviously, the price of the Oysters T72HM 3G is set at such a low level for the reason that the gadget will be guaranteed to bring income to the operator, since the user will have no alternative.
Reviews in general
What about the opinions of people who bought this product? In principle, the overall impression is the same as described in this article: the tablet is cheap, but it looks satisfactory. In terms of functions, it is quite versatile (it can be used as a regular device), but at the same time it does not have the most powerful parameters, which is why you should not think about some colorful games on it, the maximum is the launch of a browser, mail, social networks and so on.
All things considered abovePeople's opinions are also divided. Someone thinks that the device is too cheap and low quality to think about buying it. And someone found the tablet very useful, affordable and functional. Therefore, the entire assessment of the model is based rather on a personal impression of it and on how much the author likes the idea of using such a device - budget, but rustic.
If you would like to purchase such a device, there is nothing difficult about it. Contact any nearest Megafon communication salon or write a letter to the support service, and they will tell you the address where you can buy such a gadget. Given its price, you can try to experiment on your own to understand how convenient it is to drive and navigate such a map.
