The most savvy readers have already guessed that Supra M847G looks like the iPad mini. And it’s, perhaps, is that when you create a “mini” Apple is very accurately hit the target with his form. Theoretically, the smaller manufacturers might try to make their tablets a little less like “IPads”, but this would change the proportions, and what makes sense to do this if you are unlikely to get easier?
As is customary in the world of Android tablets, the front panel of the device has no physical keys. So give “Supra” for “mini” will not work — lack of Home button will not notice except the man had slept through the last three years. But in the top of the panel, under the lens a 1.2-Megapixel web camera, there is a slot of speaker — atypical elements, even for the peers.
A device with a similar screen size depending on user and situation, it is convenient to keep both in vertical and in horizontal orientation. Therefore, the manufacturer has to consider the ergonomics thus, in order to use the gadget conveniently in both positions. And engineers the Supra did it. If you hold the device vertically and all connectors (micro USB, mini HDMI and a 3.5 mm audiojack) will be on the top. Here is the power key and volume buttons moved to the right side.
The body tablet of metal. The back panel is a matte, rough — it fits in the hand and doesn’t try to slip out of them. The bulk of the “back” of the gadget is fixed. But closer to the top there is a plastic panel that hides the connectors for memory cards and SIM cards — by the way, full size.
The gadget weighs a bit — 315 grams. Hands do not get tired even from long communication with the tablet on weight. The thickness average is about nine millimeters. Due to the fillets on the rear of the Supra looks slimmer than it really is. In General, to the Assembly, appearance and ergonomics we have no complaints.
