The Nokia T10 looks very much like what it is: a cheap Android tablet. It’s relatively chunky with its 9mm thickness, and its looks are about as plain as they come – although its Ocean Blue backing does catch the eye more than black or gray would.

It tips the scales at 375 grams, which isn’t too bad, but you’re not going to confuse this for a premium-level Android tablet or iPad when you pick it up.

Smaller tablets don’t seem to be all that popular – it feels as though Apple is somewhat reluctant when it comes to keeping the iPad mini line going, for example – and with a screen size of 8 inches this is one of the smaller slates on the market.


  • A single 8MP sensor on the back and 2MP one on the front
  • Images from the main camera can be okay in good light
  • Struggles in low light

Most of us aren’t really going to buy a tablet to take photos with it, and so it won’t matter much that the 8MP camera on the back of the Nokia T10 isn’t very good. Images captured by the camera are okay in good light, but tend to be a bit overexposed, and the color balance and autofocus isn’t always reliable.

We’re not saying you can’t get appealing pictures from the Nokia T10, because you can. But you need a steady hand, and plenty of light, and even then there are no guarantees – fine for quickly sharing moments on social media, but not for reliably capturing important memories.

The picture quality gets worse in low light, as you would expect, although to be fair you can still grab some usable images if there’s a bit of illumination around.


  • Should offer at least 12 hours of life
  • Charges slowly

When streaming video – with the screen at maximum brightness and the volume set quite low – the 5,250mAh battery in the Nokia T10 dips by 8% an hour, which equates to around 12-13 hours of video watching overall.

That’s fairly impressive, and dim the screen and you will of course get more than that. In more general use, battery life on the Nokia T10 holds up well: you’re going to get at least two or three days out of it with intermittent use, or maybe a day of non-stop gaming.

It’s worth noting that there’s no wireless charging here, and rather slow 10W charging over a wired connection. These are other areas where you need to accept the trade-off of the low price of the Nokia T10, although the battery life overall is pretty good – a benefit of going with lower powered internal specs and a not-so-dazzling display.


  • Sluggish performance with some stutters
  • Everything should just about run

A quick peek at the internal specs of the Nokia T10 – a mid-range Unisoc T606 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (which you can expand via a microSD card) – and you won’t be expecting too much in terms of performance.

Geekbench 5 scores of 308 (single-core), 1175 (multi-core) and 514 (OpenCL) back that up. This is not the tablet to get if you want lightning fast performance.

The tablet is usable, though we suspect it probably wouldn’t be if the CPU or RAM was cut back any further. Every app and game will run, just about, but expect a few stutters and some lag when you’re trying to quickly switch between apps, move between menus, and launch the most intensive tasks.

Apps take a little longer to launch than you might expect if you’ve used the same ones on your smartphone, and feel a little less responsive.

Something we do like about the Nokia T10 is the integrated face unlock technology, which works well and saves you from having to enter a password or a PIN every time you want to get to the home screen – it’s not something that you often get on a budget tablet, and it’s one of the bright spots of the whole package.
