So you thought the HP 7 Plus Android tablet was a steal at $100? How about a model with similar specs, but a full HD display for the same price?

Chinese tablet maker Teclast has launched a new 7 inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a quad-core CPU, and a price tag of about $100… although you might have to pay a bit extra to get this tablet shipped from China.

Teclast P78HD

The Teclast P78HD is available from OrientDeal for $111 with free shipping. Sellers at AliExpress are offering the same tablet for as little as $100, but the best prices I’ve seen to include free shipping start at about $109.

The tablet features an Allwinner A31 ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor with PowerVR SGX 544 graphics, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, 802.11n WiFi, a 2MP rear camera, and 0.3MP front-facing camera.

It has a microSD card slot, mini HDMI port, and headset jack.

All told, the specs are very similar to those for HP’s budget tablet… except HP’s tablet has a 1024 x 600 pixel screen and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean while this model has a full HD display and runs Android 4.4 KitKat. The Teclast tablet also seems to have significantly smaller screen bezels, if you care about that sort of thing.

Also — the Teclast P78HD isn’t readily available in the United States unless you buy from a company that resells Chinese tablets in the west. So you might get better support for your device if you order from HP.

  1. I purchaceD the P78Hd anD . It runs out of battery power in 20 MINUTES AND WHEN NOT IN USE STILL RUNS OUT OF POWWE FAST NOT USER FRENDLY IM HOPING FOR A REFUND

  2. I got one of these, works great, perfect pocketability, not as snappy or as smooth as the Nexus 7 but for $100+ it’s a great tablet. Screen is a little less saturated than N7 but with some adjustment it comes close the camera is ok. The only downside i have noticed besides a few links back to Chinese only screens (easy work arounds) is the power management is not great. Good enough to get you through a day of use but it’s not going to sit around for a few days unused and still have enough juice to get you through the day the way an ipad would.

  3. No we pretty much thought that the HP was a rip-off because the specs stink for a tablet at that price point.
    BOTH are just Chinese seconds, at least this one gives you better hardware for the money and ends up being a better value.
    Neither will get any updates so pay for better hardware up front.

  4. If I cannot install Cyanogenmod on it – it’s useless to me. Good luck with zillion of annoying Chinese apps you cannot remove.

    P.S. in any way – I’m waiting for Ubuntu tablet.

    1. Honestly! Ubuntu will reinvent tablets. Anything else just looks like a toy…

  5. The Google Translate comments from chinese buyers are not all that great, looked at this one a few weeks ago. The screen might not be perfect and the battery is rather small.
    Btw in China it’s even cheaper at 80$.
    There is also the Teclast P79HD that is Intel based and costs 112$ in China so some 140-150$ for international buyers.
    Anyway, not a great time to buy budget phones/tabs since A53 and A17 based SoCs are about to arrive.

  6. I’d like to see a review of this thing just for curiosity sake…
    I mean it looks nice and has fairly decent specs. If it had 1 or 2 more Gee Bee’s of RAM it would almost be perfect (I say almost because I really like Miracast now a days). I’d pay up to $150 for a more RAM endowed tablet. Update: it HAS Miracast! WOOO! But, it doesn’t have GPS or Bluetooth apparently…which is strange. https://www.teclast.org/teclast-p78hd-tablet-pc-quad-core-7-inch-ips-1920-x-1200-android-4-4-8gb.html

    1. How is it strange? It’s a dirt cheap tablet and to get it that price, they cut corner when they can. It also has 1gb ram ad I have a feeling the GPU is going to be using up 256 mb of that so don’t expect to multitask with this.

      1. Seriously? Are you just being obtuse or are you new here? These are standards that even the shittiest tablets have…somehow I don’t think I need to tell you that. I just get the sense you like to hear yourself talk.
