Phablet devices are slowly but surely finding their place on the mobile device market. As the name suggests, a phablet is a cross between a tablet and a smartphone and some users religiously stick to them and prefer them over other mobile devices.
Price used to be an issue with phablets, but the Chinese keep coming up with affordable, yet decent performing devices and one of those devices is the recently released Ainol AX10 Pro 4G.
The white version of the AX10 Pro is pretty basic when it comes to looks. However, this lack of flamboyance might be a good addition for some users, as a lot of these devices today seem to over-deliver in the looks department.
As with most Chinese devices, this relatively light phablet has a decent number of ports and a solid display. When it comes to cameras, Ainol disappoints once again, as the front one is only 2 MP, but at least the back camera is a decent 5 MP model.
This is another dual boot device (Android 5.1 and Windows 10 are installed on it) and both operating systems run just fine. 1 GB of RAM memory is pretty low, even for a cheap Chinese tablet, so that might pose another concern for many of you reading this.
On the other hand, software should run smoothly on the quad core processor.
