TechLife Pad Is a Large Educational Tablet from realme

Released yesterday and boasts a large 10.36″ 2K screen. Well… that’s about it.

In case you haven’t heard of it, “TechLife” is realme’s lifestyle brand and its products mainly include AIoT appliances and wearables such as rice cookers, electric toothbrushes, exercise bands, smartwatches, and TWS earbuds. However, the brand announced something unprecedented, something out of its league. A tablet. You would think a tablet would be under the realme brand, but we’re speculating that they are experimenting. This is technically their third sub-brand, after Narzo which we barely hear nowadays and must have died after a few months.

Unlike the realme Pad, Techlife’s tablet is supposedly a more affordable variant. It even has its own unique design.

As mentioned above, the main feature of this tablet is the large nearly bezel-less display. You know what else has such a feature? realme’s own realme Pad! The display has a resolution of 2000x1200px and measures 10.36″. Sadly and questionably, it only has 60Hz refresh rate. Don’t expect AMOLED here.

See, this is the reason why we think the tablet has an eyebrow-raising price. Its chipset is the UNISOC T606. A chipset you would typically see on sub-5K devices, including tablets. Even the realme Pad (the first generation) uses the MediaTek Helio G80, and the second generation uses a Helio G99. If they went with something in the middle, say a Helio G85 or G88, then this would have been fine. It has two advantages against the 1st-gen realme Pad though. That is, this one, by default, has 128GB storage and a dedicated space for up to 1TB MicroSD Card. It still has 4GB RAM, however. The second advantage is that this tablet has 4G.

The tablet runs stock Android instead of realmeUI which might make it slightly harder to connect with realme and Techlife’s other devices, knowing that their main shtick is having an interconnected ecosystem. Google Kids Space is a separate UI with a more cartoonish design and comes with parental controls. Only apps that are assigned will appear here, and even then, these require a passcode to open. Google Kids Space is intended to be an e-learning tool and helps you organize homework, create arts and crafts, among other things.

Common with many budget tablets, the Techlife Pad boasts a quad speaker system. This one also has a 3.5mm jack. Perfect for watching movies privately. The same sheet mentions of Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

There is a single camera found on this tablet. We’re not sure what that secondary hole is for. It’s most likely there for aesthetic reasons. The rear camera has 8MP resolution and the front has 5MP. See techies, perfect for those online classes this tablet is catering to.

The tablet has a pretty small (for a tablet its size) 7000mAh battery and a slow 10W USB-C port. According to the marketing materials, the tablet is designed to last for up to 8 hours per charge. Not that efficient, we must say.

The aluminum-framed tablet is available now in Lazada, Shopee, and TikTok. It could also possibly appear in any Techlife concept store where you could purchase them. The tablet has a price of PHP 8,999 but is currently discounted to just PHP 8,499 for a limited time only. The tablet is only slightly cheaper than the realme Pad but it’s distinct and affordable enough against the more powerful realme Pad 2. That tablet sells for PHP 12,799 (8/128) and PHP 15,499 (8/256) while the first-gen is priced at PHP 14,990 (4/64) but currently discounted to PHP 10,090.
