Like many people these days, I spend my time trapped at home watching Netflix and playing computer games. Unfortunately, the charm of binge-watching television has worn off. I decided that the best way to stave off boredom was to learn something new.
I picked up a Casio piano keyboard. This device came equipped with plenty of keys, mysterious menus, and weirdly named buttons. I have no idea how to work the silly thing. Happily, Casio also provides a learning program that can be accessed by a tablet.
I checked out Amazon, searching for a 10-inch tablet with plenty of features and a reasonable price. My final choice was the Winnova P20. While this device proved to be a little more expensive than what I had initially budgeted for, its specifications are outstanding, and it is rated highly by other Amazon customers.
The Winnova P20 weighs in at 18.1 ounces. Its dimensions are 9.6 x 6.4 x 0.35 inches, and the device is fitted with a 10-inch display. A glass screen covers the front of this tablet’s brushed metal shell.
A USB-C charging port, volume control, and power switch are located on the P20’s top edge. Along its left edge are two speaker grills and a five-pin input that can be used to connect a compatible keyboard. A 3.5mm headset jack and an SD slot are fitted to the tablet’s right edge.
The 5MP selfie camera is mounted to the device’s upper front bezel, and its 13MP primary camera and flash are located on the back.
This tablet runs on the Android 10 operating system. It is fitted with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. The Winnova P20 is powered by a Spreadtrum SC9863A Octa-Core processor operating at a maximum frequency of 1.6GHz.
The P20’s IPS display has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.
Additional features include GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and an SD slot capable of expanding memory to an additional 64GB.

Winnovo is trademarked by Heyuan Vastking Electronic Company, located in Heyuan, Guangdong.
It was easy to get started. I turned the tablet on, selected my internet provider, and added its Wi-Fi password.
At that point, the Winnovo P20 downloaded an update and asked for my Google password. Then it suggested I automatically copy the applications already installed on my Android phone and add them to my tablet.
This procedure saved a lot of time, although I did find that several of the added applications were not compatible with the new device. These were quickly deleted and substituted with tablet-friendly replacements.
This device is equipped with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Both systems connect quickly, have adequate range, and function well.
The Winnovo P20’s IPS HD display enjoys a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The video is crisp and clear, the color is good, and the screen’s viewing angle is wider than expected. The contrast is acceptable, although not competitive with my 65-inch HDR television.
The stereo speakers are clear and loud although, due to their small size, slightly tinny. While not suitable for music, they are more than adequate for any other purpose.
This tablet is powered by a Spreadtrum SC9863A Octa-Core processor and equipped with 3GB of RAM. The Winnovo P20 was able to handle any task I wished of it smoothly and efficiently.
64GB of Rom is included with the Winnovo P20. An SD-micro slot allows for an additional 64GB of storage.
This device is equipped with a 5MP selfie camera and a rear-mounted 13MP camera. While my phone takes better photographs, the Winnovo P20’s primary camera works reasonably well and produces more detailed images than comparatively priced tablets.
Battery Life Test
I set the brightness to max and streamed Netflix for several hours. During the first movie, I used Bluetooth to connect the tablet’s sound output to my 100W PA speaker. That sounded really good! Then I cut the Bluetooth connection and turned up the tablet’s speakers until they were quite loud. After five hours of use, the battery’s level had dropped to five percent.
This tablet covers all the bases. It utilizes the most up-to-date Android operating system and is equipped with a modern processor and enough RAM to ensure it can smoothly run all but the most demanding applications.
It has plenty of storage space and HD quality resolution. If you are searching for a feature-packed 10-inch tablet at a reasonable price, the Winnovo P20 is an excellent option.
