As well as talk about NeoCore Tablets, including a bit about the Neocore E1 (already reviewed here), Neocore also sell a wide and varied range of excellent Bluetooth speakers. Anyway, enough about that.
When it comes to good performance, reliability and value for money, Neocore do have a superb track record with both their Tablets and speakers. The NeoCore N1F (N1F16) pictured below appears to follow that trend nicely. Although a little outdated now, but still being able to hold its own, and being cheap in price, It has a good specification for the price.
Fully updatable Android 6.0 Marshmallow Operating System, 10.1 Inch IPS 1024 × 600 Display, 64-bit Quad Core A53 Processor @ 1.3GHz, 16 GB Internal storage, 1 GB RAM (DDR3), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Micro USB port, Mini HDMI, Micro SD slot, dual cameras, built-in microphone, loudspeaker, 3.5 mm headphone jack and a very impressive battery life.
Check out the full range of Tablets on the official Neocore website This model also has an anti-slip back casing, which is something more and more brands are now starting to adopt. This probably has something to do with the amount of damaged tablets being returned after accidentally slipping out the hands of the user.
The N1F’s Wi-Fi is Dual Band. This means that it is compatible with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies. However, to take full advantage of this you will need a router that has the ability to operate on both frequencies.
In 2021 Dual band capable routers are more common, so the chances are, if you’ve had a new router recently, it could very well be Dual Band. Only a few tablets in this price range can hold as much external storage space as the N1F. This model can hold a massive 256 GB of extra storage space via the SD card. That’s great news for game / film hogs. Again, among its competitors there’s not many who can claim to have a 13-hour battery life.
Of course, the battery duration depends hugely on how demanding you are with the tablet, but if we narrow it down to combine a mixed variation of usage, an approximate estimation would be a battery duration of between 7 – 9 hours from a full charge. Expect something around that length of time and you won’t be disappointed.
Just like with the rest of NeoCore’s offerings, a 2-year warranty comes as part of the package with the 5th Generation N1F, which is crazy value for money if you consider the low price and limited profit margin NeoCore must actually make on each device. You know when a product is in high demand.
At the time of writing this quick review the NeoCore N1F was available to pre-order. By the time I’d finished writing this post it was completely sold out. However, checking back on the listing page, I can see that there are a few now for sale again.
So, if you’re dead-set on wanting to purchase this 5th Generation of the N series, be quick. If you didn’t manage to grab an N1F while there were a few still available, as mentined above, another NeoCore model well worth considering is the excellent, very highly rated and higher specification E1.
