Recently, many manufacturers have put on stream cloning iPads. That is why it is nice to see devices with original design (not from Apple). This time, the subject of the review is Techno 9.0 3G tablet from BB-Mobile brand, which previously entered the market with gadgets like doorfinders and tablets for children. I should note right away that the 9" display resolution is 1920×1280, and the battery capacity is 7500 mAh.

The tablet comes in a cheerful green box. The device lies in a cardboard tray surrounded by foam rubber, and the lid is also foam wrapped on the inside – the manufacturer obviously took care that even the Russian Post could not kill the tablet.
The package is unusually rich. The box with bb-mobile Techno 9.0 3G contained a cable from USB to microUSB, charger, wired headset, case and wipe cloth, OTG cord, instructions and warranty card.
There is a protective film under the unit’s information film already factory applied – a nice and useful bonus.
The wired headset with headphones frankly surprised and then disappointed with the sound quality. It is comfortable and quite enough to use the tablet as a phone or chat on Skype, but do not count on listening to music in good quality.
The rag is a good thing, but not really needed – no marks on the tablet body, and the glass, as I wrote above, is already protected by a film. Another great bonus is a soft case.
Unfortunately, you can’t charge your tablet with microUSB – you’ll have to use the charger that comes with it. When will there be a complete standardization of this connector for all gadgets?
The tablet can be used as a phone.
You can talk on it without any additional devices if you are Denis Cyplenkov, or you can use a headset or a mini phone – it is not included in the kit, but it fits to any Android device.
BB-Mobile Techno 9.0 3G is not a clone, unlike several other BB-mobile tablets, which is already a joy. The design is original, looks decent.
The back cover is made of pleasant to the touch white plastic, perforated and does not slip out of your hands, even if you hold it with two fingers. The device weighs only 497 grams.
The 1W speaker is located on the back wall. There is also a 5 megapixel camera. On the bottom left is a hole that gives access to the reset button.
The paired volume buttons are located on the top edge of the case, next to the power button.
On the bottom edge are connectors for microSD, charger, 3.5mm jack, mini HDMI, microUSB and SIM card. There is also a microphone.
The side edges are free of any buttons and ports. The non-wide bezel makes the tablet more diminutive.
On the front side there is a front camera and a light sensor. There is no space for hardware or touch buttons.
It is worth noting the build quality – no backlashes or creaks. Except that the silver frame around the perimeter of the tablet can be rubbed.
The tablet is equipped with two cameras. The front one is 2 megapixels, which is more than enough for Skype communication. Five megapixel main camera allows you to make a decent for the tablet pictures. Images are clickable.
Techno 9.0 3G is based on a quad-core RK3188 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz. RAM – 2 GB, built-in – 16, expandable with microSD cards up to 32 gigabytes.
Built-in Wifi module with 802.11 b/g/n support, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. There is a mini HDMI connector. Battery capacity is 7500 mAh.
About the device in Antutu.
The tablet runs on Android 4.2.
The tablet’s nine-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920×1280 pixels is bright and gives a great picture. The live wallpaper with autumn leaves floating on it looks very good, as well as toys like Asphalt 8 Airborn. The viewing angle is close to 180.
In Antutu Benchmark the tablet scored 14, 462 points, just behind Google Nexus 4.
In Quadrant the result was excellent – the gadget overtook a couple of devices from Samsung. The tablet scored 3548 points.
Nenamark 2 test results.
Vellamo test for HTML5 processing speed.
Arcade games like Rail Rush run smoothly.
Asphalt 8 greeted me with a menu like this – I don’t know whose fault it is.
At medium picture settings no brakes in the game did not observe, all smoothly and without flaws.
On max settings the game starts to slow down.
For the first test of the battery, which has a capacity of 7500 mAh, I used this app In 3 hours and 50 minutes it used up 70% of the charge with the CPU, GPS, display and continuous vibration. The graph is clickable.
In BTU Tester video mode, the battery lasted three and a half hours – 88 to 14 percent of the battery was used up in video mode with maximum brightness and Wi-Fi on. The screenshot is clickable.
The tablet looks decent, is not a copy of the iPad and has and quality bright display. The device is suitable for those who are going to read on the road, surf the net, watch movies and play toys. At maximum brightness in video mode it will last more than three and a half hours, and three hours it will take to drain the battery when the CPU, GPS, backlight and vibrating. Games look great on this display, as do movies.
