SKK Mobile Marian Tab Review - Not Your Average Local Tablet with Fantastic Specs!

This is probably the best gadget we ever reviewed from SKK Mobile and it is also named after her Royalness, Primetime Queen Marian Rivera. We are talking of the Marian Tab which is also the country's first ever octa-core tablet.


This baby has sick specs and it positions itself with the top mobile brands! It is the best tablet slash phone to be ever released and we were excited to say that too!


What's Inside the Big Blue Box? Every SKK Mobile gadget comes with the usual accessories - cable, charger, headphones, manual and battery but with Marian Tab it comes w a Smart Cover and extra screen protector. You can't resist a freebie now can you?

SKK Mobile Marian Tablet's Hardware



It looks like Samsung's top of line specs but it is not, usually tablets don't get much power specs like this. So SKK Mobile took it to another level with a premium tablet.

Sleek, Minimal and Clean Front

The front looks like SKK's latest phone releases but just got bigger and more shinier and more glass to its 7-inch screen. At the lower portion are capacitive keys imprinted. On the upper left part is the 5MP front camera and in the middle is the earpiece.



Plain and Plastic Back

The back doesn't really match well with the front and the plastic cover is a bit thin, but getting heavy is not an option and this is rust-free so we're sticking to it.



Battery, micro SD and SIM cards compartments

Removing the plastic white back cover shows you the 4000mAh Li-Ion battery. You will need to remove the battery first to access the microSD or microSIM.




The camera is much bigger this time and led flash is more functional. Even used it as a flashlight :D.





Simple Top & Bottom

The micro USB port is located at the bottom of the phone. No other visible buttons or ports at this part though.



On top is the 3.5mm audio jack port only.



Left & Right



On the upper left side of the smartphone you will see the volume buttons and on the right is the power button. Everything is minimally dark gray on the middle lining.



Overall, the design is still pretty minimal and sleek. It has also the right weight for a 7" tablet. It will not stress you will playing. Also there's no branding on front, which is very suited to our tastes. This tablet may not give you much on its physical looks but its power lies on its hardware.

We can name this as the best local gaming tablet too!

The Benchmarks!

For an octa-core tablet it got an 50.3 fps score which is better than ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and Samsung Galaxy Tab using NenaMark 2.4 tests.


AnTutu & Vellamo Tests

Marian Tab scored 1395 on Vellamo's Multicore test which is far better than ASUS Nexus 7 and both Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4. On the Metal Test it scored 904 which is better than Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Just the great results for your browsing and video playback needs.




Marian Tab scored 26909 on Antutu Benchmark, this means you can run almost anything like those hardcore games you always wanted to play plus all the multitasking stuff you need. 





This is the perfect local Android Tablet there is right now. WIFI and Bluetooth are very dependable in speeds, videos play fine without lag, browsing is seamless and yes! Games are a must!

We even tried this game and Toothless was so much alive!!



What do we think of SKK Mobile's Marian Tab?

Although they peg themselves as the affordable line of phones or tablets, this one is not to be grouped with their other lines. This is a premium offering that has knock-out power specs for a person who needs more out of their tablet. The Price is a whooping P19,999.00 as it was first announced but let us see if SKK Mobile considers to have this lowered for you to really really avail it.

For practical reasons this is not the brand to choose especially for the price range, but the specs are just so worth it! We also have to remember that this is named after Marian herself so expect a royal tablet with top of the line hardware/specs. :D



Plus is also comes with special Marian Rivera content - exclusive photos and video once you open the Gallery.
