Reviews Word on the street for the Toshiba Excite 10


8.0
It's very fast and stable, and it's thin and light.

6.7
The audio enhancement feature clearly improved the sound quality of all audio when turned on, enhancing the previously muffled sound to something with more clarity.

7.0
As for the audio quality from its dual speakers, it’s effective enough to please out ears, seeing that its neutral tones are smooth without being too overbearing at the loudest volume setting.

4.1
Android may have more games than ever that are able to run on the bigger screen, but that doesn't do the Excite much good, because it just can't handle anything graphically intensive.

Overall

6.6 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

As ever with this screen type, colours are vivid, viewing angles excellent and contrast levels very good.
by TrustedReviews (Mar, 2012)
It's bright and accurate, viewing angles are excellent, with virtually no discoloration even far off-axis, and while you can definitely make out individual pixels and see some jaggies on small text, it's not enough to be a huge problem unless you're really looking for it.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
It's a pleasure to watch movies on the Excite 10, and it gets plenty bright for extremely well-lit rooms.

Apps

The full suite of Google apps are on board including the Store, Google Books, web browser, email, Gmail, Music, Videos (with rental and purchase), YouTube, Gallery, Maps and Navigation.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
The tablet can handle Adobe Flash Player, 1080p MPEG4 high profile video and today's cutting edge TegraZone THD games.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
Although they share the same familiar two-panel interface, the standard email app allows us to execute pinch gestures to zoom – whereas in Gmail, it’s stuck on a fixed view.

Battery

In practice, largely because frequent crashes are a fact of life with the Excite, I got more like four hours of battery on a charge.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
The tablet comes with Toshiba's very robust charging cable and a 5 volt 2 amp charger that's close to the iPad charger's 5 volt 2.1 amp specs so third party iPad external battery packs and chargers should work.
by MobileTechReview (May, 2012)
Chief among them is the Enable Balanced Power setting that appears to dim the backlight, regardless of the current brightness setting, ostensibly to save battery life.

Battery life

The tablet charges via a proprietary port on the bottom that looks like Apple's dock connector, only it's even larger and requires a humungous power cable.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
Toshiba claims the Excite 10 LE lasts eight hours, and when things were working properly that seemed to be accurate.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)
It seemed to kick into an even higher gear when an app crashed, and that was when battery life really started to drop.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)

Operating System

The LE is both thinner and lighter than the 10, but the 10 feels like more care was put into the tablet's actual construction as it has none of the exposed edges the LE produced.
by c|net (May, 2012)
The UI is identical to what we've seen on other Android 4.0 tablets for the most part, with a few small changes.
by c|net (May, 2012)
You get full access to the Android Market (now known as the Play Store), but as we've said over and over the app situation for large-screen Android devices is an ugly one.
