TechLife Pad Review: Entertainment Made Affordable

Android tablets are somehow targeted to a niche market. Still, given the shift in how people consume the digital space nowadays due to the pandemic, many tech consumers now realize just how convenient these devices could be. And as an emerging tech brand, it made sense for TechLife to launch its first tablet offering - the TechLife Pad, given how it has proven now and then that it understands what its customers need – especially the budget-savvy ones.

Is the TechLife Pad the next device you should spend your hard-earned money on? Read on to find out.


For a budget Android tablet, the TechLife Pad is very well-built. Its overall design language is neat and easy on the eyes, mirroring the typical minimalist look of premium tablets. On its rear, it comes with only the TechLife branding on the lower part and its sole camera module along with the LED flash and camera-like module on the upper right. What’s also impressive about the TechLife Pad is that instead of donning a plastic build usually found in budget tablets, it’s dressed in aluminum alloy, complementing its light and thin (7.4mm) body. Plus, it’s got a matte finish, easing off worries about smudges and fingerprints.

A tell-tale of TechLife Pad’s affordable price point lies on its display – its thick bezels on all four sides. However, we think that the tablet’s massive 10.4-inch screen in a rich 2K resolution and 224ppi pixel density and 60Hz refresh rate is a good bargain for this. While the TechLife Pad’s display doesn’t support HDR, it does have an IPS panel, giving you good viewing angles and impressive visibility even under direct sunlight. Since it’s a tablet, the TechLife Pad brings you several modes of use, including the reading mode and night light for e-books, or if you’d like to use the tablet at night and not cause too much fatigue on your eyes.

The TechLife Pad doesn’t have glass protection, thankfully, it does come with pre-installed plastic film. There’s also no available case for the TechLife Pad in the market as TechLife doesn’t currently sell accessories for this specific device yet. So you just have to look for a case that will fit a 10.4-inch tablet to save your TechLife Pad from dents and scratches.

In terms of multimedia consumption, the TechLife Pad does its job alright. As mentioned, its screen is decent enough for a good binge-watching session, and what we like about this tablet is its quad speakers that deliver reasonable audio quality.

The TechLife Pad has its USB-C port, volume rocker, 3.5mm audio jack, power-slash lock button for ports and buttons, a microSD slot and SIM slot. Yes, this tablet can accommodate SIM card for WiFi connectivity.

Under the hood, the TechLife Pad comes with 4GB RAM + 128GB storage and additional 4GB memory expansion. It runs on a Unisoc T606 processor and a Mali-G57 MP1 GPU. Performance-wise, the TechLife Pad is good in its league. It can handle multitasking well, and we didn’t encounter any hiccups when constantly switching between apps for productivity, entertainment, social media, and gaming. We even used the TechLife Pad to attend conference calls via Zoom and Google Meet, and our experience was seamless. It just goes to show how the TechLife Pad is an ideal device for students who are in an online class setup. The tablet also has an integrated Google Kids Space with applications, videos, and books suitable for children.

One department that the TechLife Pad didn’t excel in was gaming, and we’re not really unimpressed by this because this was expected. We’re not even a fan of using tablets for gaming, either. It’s better to look for a gaming smartphone with a large screen if you’re into that immersive mobile gaming experience.

The user interface of the TechLife Pad is vanilla Android 14 OS, which is pretty good as there is little to no bloatware at all. The TechLife Pad doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner (come on, it’s 2024!), and the only security it provides for device access is fingerprint and face recognition.


People using tablets sized 10 inches and up to take photos are a different breed. Tablets aren’t exactly a convenient device to use when shooting photos, given how big they are compared to smartphones, but if you’re this kind of person, the TechLife Pad can take decent shots, although don’t expect too much.

Its 8-megapixel camera can capture images with so-so quality in terms of color saturation and detail sharpness under well-lit environments. But, in dark conditions, the TechLife Pad struggles. The tablet’s camera can be useful, however, in scanning documents.

On the other hand, its front-facing camera is good enough to be used in video calls with a wide field of view spanning 105 degrees.

Videos aren’t that much either, even if the TechLife Pad’s rear camera can shoot 1080p at 30fps. You can use the TechLife Pad to take videos just for the sake of it or to keep a memory, but we wouldn’t advise posting them on social media because of its quality.

With a 7,000mAh battery, the TechLife Pad can last up to four days on mild usage – a very impressive feat, especially if you’ll mainly use the device for productivity, school, or work. It comes with a 10W fast-charging support, allowing the tablet to go from 20% to 100% in around two hours.

Putting the TechLife Pad into our standard video loop test with 50% brightness and 50% volume, the tablet was able to loop a 1080p video for 15 hours and 38 minutes before it blacked out.


By and large, the TechLife Pad is another offering that TechLife got right the first time. So if all you need is a bigger screen with just the basic specs and features to power you through a busy workday, then the TechLife Pad is where your money should go.

The TechLife Pad is priced at Php8,999 for the 4GB + 128GB (4G LTE) version. Get yours now via the official online channels of TechLife, and at TechLife stores and kiosks nationwide.
