It’s quite a tough choice to pick up a name of any device with the verb. Sometimes it can be a real dreaded pun intended. When speaking of the word “Excite” the Toshiba has really not made the best of the choice. Keeping that apart, the Tegra 4 stuffed processor in Excite write, one can find similarities with the Galaxy note 10.1. One of the great assets of this Excite write tablet from Toshiba is that it has stylus included, and has good resolutions which is quite uncommon in tablets. The device is aiming to drive the customers to u-turn towards them who will search an alternate to Note 10.1. The Tegra 4 processor Excite write is priced at $600. It has some great performance to boost, it also comprises of optimised pen features for increased productivity results.
DESIGN OF EXCITE WRITE
Similar to its lineage series of Excite, there seems to be absolutely no change in feel and appearance of the new Excite write. The latest released model has a 10 inches screen which is built in black and glossy coating. The rear part of the model has the same plastic structure as the other excite series. Though there is a feel of solidity in feel and appearance but it is not justifying for the price of $600. As the other models with aluminium body have a higher stand like iPad and Xperia z.
The positional settings of the branding and the camera clearly points to use the stylus for the landscape mode. Though this plan is quite assertive, but the tablet lacks the holster. So make it a rule to carry the pen while travelling with the tablet.
In weigh department, the Toshiba ounces lesser than the Note but is heavier, shorter and thicker than that of Xperia Z.
The latest released tablet from Toshiba comes in a backlit display of LED 256 X 1600, which endows the images, texts and videos quite with elegance. The pictures in the screen display are quite sharp in effect and crystal clear to view. Adding to the superior view, the flip board interface comes in with a surprise of display of hi-res. The wide angled view through the latest released device is magnanimous, there seems to be no issues to view the image from any angle. Though image quality is good in standards but it seems to faultier in the brightness of the screen with 344 lux.
AUDIO SUPPORT OF EXCITE WRITE
The latest released Excite write is backed with great chirpy sound as it is equipped with harman/kardon dual speakers. The sounds seemed to float and create good sense of melody. The rear end of the speakers produce sounds to a strong depth, which is no way a common scene in most of the mobile speakers of the present time. Though it is the loudest in the speakers but the sound blended well in the atmosphere.
Like the other Excite member, the newest Excite tablet also runs on android. The device is loaded in with the 4.2 basic android set up. It has all the apps and the minimalistic and easy screen to offer to its users. Though the basic android set up is one step behind the latest released one, but still it boasts of Google voice and now searche options. There is the tapping of the microphone option at the end of the bar which if clicked will open up the voice feature.
It is built in with stock android supported touch screen. In most of the slated when one will surf through will get hooked to Google’s mobile operating system. If one taps on the settings on the left hand side, then the user will be able to customise in the areas of text correction matters and in gesture controls. The keyboard comes in with voice enabled functions when tapped on the bar at the end. When tested for the typing speed, the result is quite an average if compared with other leads in the market.
The stylus pen equipped with the Excite write is made of plastic finish and is similar to the standard crayola maker. It can be quite an easy one to use practically to write in search queries in Google and YouTube search box; it was seen as quite a pleasant one. The stylus is quite flexible in bringing in the self composed handwritten over the typing one. The excite is backed with the app for Stylus on mobile. This helps in bringing about the accurate spacing and word corrections in a text. One can easily scribble down artistic doodles and point out important notes through the stylus pen supported apps in the Excite write.
The device comes in with processor strength of 4 tetra. It is backed with RAM of 2GB. In the benchmark tests the Tablet from Toshiba proved to be a proven winner. It scored quite in advance over the Xperia Z QUALCOMM processor and the S4 PRO. The benchmark counts on the features of CPU, OS and graphics support in 3D. The Toshiba’s excite write is said to be tripled in performance over the other tablets that are around.
In the processing of graphics it has some powerful pack of Geforce enabled GPU inbuilt in it. In the benchmark test for 3D meter it proved to be a winner in every way. The test analyse that the Toshiba’s Excite write is quite an advanced in the graphics department than the other tablets in the category. It gave in a tough time to the Xperia Z and S4 PRO.
The device comes in with a rear end camera of 8 mega pixels and a front camera of 1.2 mega pixels strength. The camera supports LED flashlight also. But one of the drawbacks of the camera feature is that images seemed to blur out when zoomed and the LED flash was not working properly.
FINAL WRAP UP
To sum up the on the whole, the device is quite good in performance in the processor and graphics. But the device proves to be a big let down in the battery performance and lacking in the place for the pen. At the price at which it is, the Note 10.1 will still be a better option with a profit of $100and a better battery to go with it.
