Upon unboxing you get to see the 8-inch DroidPad 8D, further digging reveals the accessories, which includes: A power adapter, two chargers  (UK Standard Plug and European Standard Plug) just like the one on the Infinix Note 2, a USB Cable which is moderately long. Sadly, no Earphones.

..But you have a dual OTG cable (dual host) for reverse charging 😀

The DroidPad 8D comes with a metal back cover which gives off this premium look and feel

However, it does feel quite weighty.

The left side of the DroidPad 8D is left bare, but on the right, you have the power  and volume buttons.

Finally, you have your MicroSD and Dual SIM Cards Slot placed below the volume button.

Meanwhile, When it comes to speaker placement, Tecno stuck with the same design on the Tecno Boom J8, although I totally loved the fact that the Droidpad 8D has dual speakers unlike the mono speakers on the J8. You also have your USB charging port.

On the front of the device seats your 2MP front facing camera with LED flash and a notification sensor
While the back houses the 5MP back camera with flash.

  4. Uke Enun Jnr says:

    Okay MissTechy i love you!!…this is just the tab i was hoping one would review, but i needed a review from a pro i could trust!…in other related news, i would love for you to test the abilities of the 1GB RAM (i mean how well can it hold up apps when minimized and how fast can it prcocess stuff), and how nice the HiOS looks on the tab! in the full review because i was thinking of which to go for, the Droipad 8D or a Note 2 LTE! THANKS MISS!

    1. Tobi Ayeni says:

  7. izuchukwu says:

    Techy mama, abeg nice review but the 5mp camera, how sharp is it and he one gig ram of a thing

  8. Tobi Ayeni says:

    I will cover all that in the full review, so be on the look out 🙂

  9. Kay says:

    Everything except the 1GB RAM is perfect for a tab in this price range at the moment in Nigeria.
    Ahem! Tobi, can I please get this one from you 😥

  10. Muhammad says:

    The big problem is just the RAM. And it’s expensive for that..

  11. drey says:

    hello miss techy,pliz i nid ur help,like i want to get a new phone and am comtemplating between innjo halo and xtouch,can u help me choose like.wich one us good

  12. Norman says:

    I’ve had a chance to use it and I must say it feels really good. It’s quite slim and the metal body is really premium. I didn’t mind the weight at all. My issue is with the 1.0Ghz processor (seriously????) and only 1GB RAM…. And I don’t know why it doesn’t come with a flip case or silicone like all their other devices. HiOS looks really good on this Tablet not quite like the one on phones.

  13. Jesse Davies Oshiame says:

    Comment Text*its a lovely tab nd d design is so WOW

  14. Airborne says:
