That's why brands like Neocore have lasted longer than many of their "competitors", who were just trying to build tablets for the cheapest price possible, make some quick cash, and get out of the game. That's not how do create a long term business. Anyway, enough about that. I think you get the idea. They have put some care and pride in what they build and sell to the public.
Neocore E1 General Spec
Back to the E1. For the price, it's really not a bad tablet. Good, responsive touch screen, nice, vivid colour clarity from the HD 10.1 IPS display, a genuine glass screen, decent Mediatek 64bit Quad Core Processor, 16GB built-in HDD, 1GB RAM (or 2GB if you buy the latest model), good battery duration, super energy saving standby mode and a big memory card capacity. With the previous generation it could hold up to 200GB of extra space via SD card expansion.
Updated Model Enhancements
But in the latest model that has been expanded further to 256GB. That's really good for a tablet in such a cheap price category. Two stand out features in the E1 are a good strong WIFI (Dual compatible) signal and a stable, reliable Bluetooth connection. There's many more good features in this model, like GPS, headphone socket, mini HDMI port, front and back cameras, 2 integrated speakers, Micro USB port, and a 2 year warranty.
It can handle a respectable level of multi-tasking, or the loading of resource demanding games or programs. Although when it comes to the really heavy stuff, like RAM hungry games and resource intensive programs, the 2GB model is much better equipped. The good news is, if you buy one today (either grey or black version) you will be buying the model that comes with extra RAM inside. And it also comes with Android 7.0 pre-installed rather than 6.0 in the earlier model, which can be a pain to update. Another bonus is an anti-slip rear casing for easier, more secure handling.
Golden Oldies and Competitors
The Neocore E1 is one in a long line of Neocore's, some of which have now been discontinued, or just seem to be out of stock anywhere they are usually for sale online. Great models like the B1 and C1. The N1 and N1F are still available, and have very good review scores like the E1.
What rivals the Neocore brand. There are a few that could be considered just as good, if not better in some areas. Amazon's Fire range are good devices, but they shoot themselves in the foot with the amount of advertising and limitations they have put on their devices when it comes to freedom of choice.
Fusion5 have some excellent tablets that have close to no limitations, and they are just as feature rich as the Neocore range. The MediaPad's presented by Huawei offer the T and M models (T3's are excellent, as is the complete M range), and they are very hard to beat when it comes to price vs features, reliability, and value for money.
TabletZap should also give a shout out to some of the tablets offered by Lenovo, especially the Tab3, as its a strong rival for the products mentioned here. Overall the E1 is a good solid tablet for general, everyday use and should last a long time if treated with care. What's in the box. Obviously, as well as the device itself, this model comes with USB charger, cable (for charging + data transfer) and user manual.
