Haipad A13 7″ Android 4.0 Tablet

Last week, the folks from Lazada sent over a new ICS tablet they’ve been selling in their online store for months. It’s the affordable, entry-level Haipad A13 which is manufactured in Shenzhen.

We did not really expect much from the Haipad but for the price tag, it’s got a good fighting chance when compared to the likes of the Kingcom Joypad, the CDR-King tablets and the many other China-branded ones in the market.

The Haipad A13 has the bare essentials — decent and slim form factor, capable processor, enough internal storage and support for expansion as well as a mature and capable operating system.

Haipad A13 specs:
7″ TFT display @ 800×480 pixel
BoxChip A13 / Cortex-A8 1~1.5GHz
8GB internal memory
up to 32GB SD/TF support
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
3G module supports USB external
Has the OTG functions

I have yet to try that function which allows you to hook up a 3G USB dongle to the Haipad for mobile internet (it needs a microUSB adaptor for that). It also has USB-on-the-Go feature for attaching external storage.

The body of the tablet is slim but feels plasticky, with a semi-glossy finish. It doesn’t have that picture-frame look which many other entry-level tablets tend to look.

While the tablet runs on ICS, we notice a little bit of lag once in a while. Nothing too annoying but not really that smooth. COuld be a viable media player, ebook reader or simply just for the usual web surfing.

The Haipad A13 sells for Php4,289 over at Lazada (see listing here).

    If you want better specs, Haipad is not for you… if you’re bargaining for quality wise tabs, don’t expect a much smoothy feature on devices that ranges from 2k+ up…. haipad uses A8 processor, that should be A9 or A10… and i doubt if it’s 1.5ghz, really… pwede pa 1ghz but not 1.5… mine’s ainol aurora 2, much like specs that of galaxy tab for 7k.. my brother has this tablet, bought later than mine, last year… he had it 2 months ago, and now, it’s dead….

    Note: in choosing tablets or any device, it’s not all about the minimal amount of money you spend, but the total quality that you really buy.. be miticilous (did i spelled it right?? Jejeje) on the specs and don’t rush things so you won’t end upwasting what you have earned so hard…
    And another, if you buy in Lazada, don’t forget to like their fb page, they might be posting discount codes that will lessen the price of the item… mine’s about 8k then they slashed it to 7k… i saw this discount code in their page, so all in all, i only paid 6K+

    God, bless you all :-)

      thanks for the advise edwin. I’ve been searching for cheap tablets all over the web and all of them have negative feedback. lol. Maybe I’ll just put the money I saved on myphone, ‘coz I’ve owned 2 myphone handsets already, and they have great quality, one is a year old already, and it it used by my brother. The other one is what I use right now, been using it for 8 months. very durable. thank u :))
