Flytouch 10.1 VC882 Features
Flytouch 10.1 VC882 has single core Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1GHz and 1GB DDR3 RAM providing somewhat weaker performance. The device screen occasionally freezes when you open too many apps at once or run intensive apps and try switching between them. This is due to the low performing hardware of this device. But, the good thing is that it runs games like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Plants vs Zombies smoothly and also handle basic apps well. Moreover, the G-Sensor improves gaming experience. So, considering the price, it performs reasonably well.
The display of this device is 10″ LED panel touch screen having screen resolution of 1024×600 pixels which is considerably okay. The touch screen is responsive and display pictures decently.
Flytouch 10.1 VC882 comes with the support for wide range of popular audio and video formats like MP3, WMA, APE, FLAC, AAC, AC3, WAV and RV, H.264, VC-1, H263, MPEG4, VP6, MKV(H.264 HP), AVI, RM/RMVB, FLV, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 respectively.
The stock media player of this device not only add support for wide range of audio and video formats, but, also play full HD 1080p videos smoothly. Also, if you have an HDTV, it allows to connect the device to HDTV via its HDMI port. So, basically it does well playing multimedia files.
The internal storage space of this device is only 4GB, out of which, around 2.5GB is available for usage as rest of the space is used by OS and system files. So, if you want more storage space, then you will have to get a Micro SD card separately and use that instead to expand the storage space by upto 32GB further.
Video Chat & Web Browsing
The front facing camera of this device is only 0.3MP which as was expected, produces terrible quality pics. So, if you decide to buy this device, take a note, the camera is more like a webcam, which is good only for video calling via Skype.
Flytouch 10.1 VC882 provides support for Flash, which means, it allows to watch streaming flash videos from sites like YouTube within the browser itself. Netflix also works well on this device and, the stock browser also render the web pages smoothly.
WiFi, 3G Support & USB Port
FlyTouch 10.1 VC882 don’t come with support for the latest standard of WiFi 802.11n, but, instead comes with the older and slow performing WiFi 802.11b/g standard. Moreover, the support for 3G dongles is provided externally only via its OTG compatible USB 2.0 port. But, the good thing is WiFi connects well and it is also possible to attach USB keyboard, USB mouse and USB flash drive to this tablet using the OTG compatible USB port. Overall, good connectivity options for the price.
