Pleasing the Eye – A review of Prestigio Multipad 7.0 Ultra Duo

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to choose a mobile assistant on the today’s saturated market of tablet computers. While comparing processor gigahertz level and memory gigabytes, do not forget that in addition to these, no doubt, important properties, a device for daily use should also simply please the eye – not only by its appearance but also by a high-quality display. When it’s hard to take your eyes off the display… this is what Prestigio Multipad 7.0 Ultra Duo is like.

Delivery Package

The tablet is packed in a compact cardboard box of the black and red colour scheme. Shiny silver words on the box along with the Android 4.1 logo attract the attention of potential buyers. Having opened the box, we find inside – except for Prestigio Multipad 7.0 Ultra Duo itself – a fairly rich set for a 7” tablet: a pocket case, a 220V battery charger compatible with European, American, and British outlets, a microUSB cable for charging and synchronisation with a PC, and a user guide. The standard delivery package may also include an OTG adapter.

The stylish leather case is what sets PMP5870C_DUO apart (this is the short name of the hero of this review given to it in the manufacturer’s documents) as compared to many other 7” tablets. Stitched with a strong thread and lined with soft fabric inside, this case is able to protect the tablet from minor troubles of life. It should be noted that the tablet is removed from the case very smoothly.

The charger has a standard USB connector, so it won’t be hard to find another charger when you need to charge your tablet at home or at work. 7” tablets usually fall within the low-cost range and can’t boast of a good delivery package. PMP5870C_DUO, however, is an unusual 7” tablet PC, and it turns out to be better even in terms of the delivery package than its counterparts of the same price range by other manufacturers.


Prestigio Multipad 7.0 Ultra Duo’s body is made of metal, which increases the strength of the device. Only the front panel is made of glass. Smooth rounded edges, grey back cover, black front panel, and thin silver edge – PMP5870C_DUO’s design is calm and business-like. Build quality is pleasing; no matter how I tried to squeeze at least some squeaks out of the tablet, this didn’t occur. Hard buttons are pressed with a clear click and are well-adjusted.

The tablet’s dimensions are 188*116*9 mm, and its weight is 300 grams. Thus, PMP5870C DUO is a fairly light and compact 7” tablet, and it can be easily held in one hand.

Most of the tablet’s front side is occupied by the screen. The first impression that the screen leaves after the tablet is switched on is awesome. With the resolution of 1280*800 and 7” diagonal, the picture is very clear and rich. The matrix is made by IPS technology, which ensures excellent viewing angles and good colour rendition. The screen suits reading and watching videos well; the brightness is sufficient for most situations. Surely, multi-touch is supported. Information stays legible even in direct sunlight, although display’s reflective coating has slight glares. The front panel’s plastic is difficult to scratch, which ensures good protection of the display from various sharp objects.
