Ainol Novo 8 Mini Review

To start off this Ainol Novo 8 Mini Review, I want to highlight some of the best aspects of this new offering from Ainol.  First off one of the best things I like about the Novo8 Mini is the beautiful casing, and at this nice compact size, it makes for a very desirable sophisticated looking tablet. We obtained our review model from here.

Going over all of the good and bad aspects of this new offering from Ainol. First off lets check out the build quality. The quality of the plastic used for the casing is not cheap and offers a nice in the hand feel. Not flimsy and not using low quality plastic, like some budget tablets can be.  So with all the hype about the Apple iPad Air and how light it is, is the Ainol Novo8 Mini lighter? yes it is, and it’s much lighter, with the Ainol Novo8 Mini coming in at only 385 grams, in comparison with Apple’s new offering which is still at 469 grams.

So the Ainol Novo8 Mini gets a firm thumbs up on build quality and weight, so lets dip into the specifications now and see what we’re getting for our $83 bucks.

The CPU in the Ainol Novo 8 Mini is a Dual Core ATM7021, which while not being the fastest CPU on the market, it’s a very power efficient CPU that enables the tablet to play HD media and gaming. The GPU of choice these days amongst all of the top tablets is the PowerVR SGX540. While the Mali400 GPU’s are popular, the PowerVR SGX series are taking all of the crowns in high performance benchmarking tests.

Which leads us nicely onto the Antutu Score for this low cost pocket rocket from Ainol. After completing the Antutu Benchmark test the Ainol Novo8 Mini pulled in a score of 8967, which is respectable for a tablet in this class.
