Toshiba AT300se review

Our Rating :
Price when reviewed : £271

A budget 10in tablet that’s just a little too expensive to recommend


10.1 in 1,280×800 display, 625g, 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3, 1.00GB RAM, 16GB disk, Android 4.1

The Tegra 3 has a 4+1 core design, which means it has four regular cores and a fifth energy-saving core that should prolong battery life when it’s not in use, but it didn’t make a big difference in our battery test, with the AT300SE managing just over five and a half hours on a single charge.

Toshiba AT300se

Although the AT300SE uses the stock Android tablet interface, Toshiba has added a few additional apps in an attempt to set it apart from the competition. Unfortunately, these aren’t particularly impressive. Splashtop Remote Desktop (a remote desktop app), TuneWiki (a music app that provides scrolling lyrics), and Skitch (an app that lets you annotate images with words and icons) are all available for free through Google Play. We welcome the inclusion of ThinkFree Office, though. The Toshiba Places shopping portal is an additional marketplace, with music, video and games available to buy, but everything’s provided by third party sources so you aren’t getting anything that’s unique to Toshiba.

The Toshiba AT300SE isn’t disappointing, but it doesn’t have any stand-out features that make it better than any other tablet. The Google Nexus 10, with its fantastic high resolution display, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2, is currently only £40 more. The Toshiba AT300SE is a good tablet, but you can buy more desirable tablets with better specifications if you spend just a little more.
