Dragon Touch X10 Review
There are a lot of different tablet companies in the world but for some reason we always keep hearing the same known brands. Probably because they spend the most on advertising. Still, there are plenty of much smaller brands out there who also make tablets and smartphones. Some that we may have never even heard of. But the best thing about them is that most of the time they have a fantastic value to performance ratio. One of such is the Dragon Touch X10 tablet! It’s one of the best selling tablets on Amazon and it even has a high rating! Which is why I decided to buy myself one as well and put together this review!

The Dragon Touch X10 is an average size tablet. It has an overall dimension of 274×168×10 mm / 10.8×6.6×0.4″ and the screen is 10.6″ diagonally. I really like that the tablet isn’t just covered by the screen. There’s a decent size bezel around it. It’s great because you can hold onto it from there and not worry about the screen reacting to random touches. The tablet it self is made out of plastic. The only downside is that it has a glossy finish, which is prone to keeping fingerprints.
The sides of the tablet have all the buttons, ports and slots. There you’ll find the two volume buttons and a power switch. It also has a headphone jack, a MicroUSB port, a standard USB 2.0 port and an HDMI port. For extra storage space, there is also a microSD slot. So nothing really special here. Good to see that some companies are still including a headphone jack as well. Oh and the standard USB 2.0 port is also a nice extra to have.
So the overall design and build quality is pretty good. Especially considering the price. The screen is an IPS display that even has a screen protector installed to it and it even covers the 2MP camera on the front. This is something that most other brands don’t add to their tablets. So I’m pretty happy with the overall quality.
Now bare in mind that the Dragon Touch X10 is a rather cheap tablet. So don’t expect the latest Android system or the latest technical specs. It’s just a tablet that’s designed for basic activities, such as browsing the internet and using social media.
The tablet gets most of its power from a 2.0 GHz Octa-Core Cortex A7 processor and it has 1 GB of RAM. This is more than enough to run the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system. It can easily handle everyday tasks, such as social media and watching YouTube videos. You can even run some light games on it that aren’t too heavy on the hardware. For example Temple Run was pretty smooth on it.
I mentioned before that the Dragon Touch X10 comes with an IPS display. It has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels, which is pretty decent. Especially when considering the price again. The screen has really nice natural colors and it definitely isn’t oversaturated. Everything is clean and sharp, I really don’t have any complaints here. Even the sensitivity of the touchscreen is pretty decent. Most of the actions are lag free and work smoothly. At least I haven’t had any problems with crashing or any noticeably slowness. So you can easily use it for everyday tasks. I’d say that the price point and the screen quality makes it a really good tablet for reading comics.
The only real downside of the Dragon Touch X10 is the quality of the speakers and cameras. The speakers have basically no bass what so ever and they are just overall weak. So definitely use headphones if you are planning on listening to music. With the camera, I just recommend not using it. Photos taken with the rear 5 MP camera are really grainy. It’s not that bad when you have the perfect lightning around you but you are still better off using your phone.
The tablet performs really well in terms of battery life. I spent the entire day browsing reddit and comics. Surprisingly enough, I still had around 15% left by the end of the day. And I literally used it for the entire day. Obviously the battery life won’t be as good if you watch movies on Netflix or videos on YouTube. But you still don’t need to worry about it dying on you instantly.
There aren’t many budget tablets that are actually good. Most of the time brands are too focused on the camera and don’t care that much about the hardware. I’m quite happy that the Dragon Touch X10 is the complete opposite of that. I don’t care about the camera quality on a tablet. I’d much rather have it run as smoothly as possible without any lag etc. So I definitely think that it’s a great tablet for everyone that’s on a low budget.
