The TCL NXTPAPER 10S Is a refreshing new device that takes your eye health into account while still providing an impressive and colourful experience whether you're using it to work, learn or play. It is an ideal choice if you’re buying a tablet for a child and want to protect their eyes.
TCL already knows a thing or two about display technology and it has just released the NXTPAPER 10s colour tablet with a screen that’s designed to look like paper that’s a lot friendlier to your eyes.
The TCL NXTPAPER 10s has a 10-inch full high-definition paper-like display which has 73 per cent blue light reduction which reduces the impact of screen time on eye health for both children and adults.
The device, which is running Android 11, also has an anti-glare finish so you’re not getting any reflections.
Yet the TCL NXTPAPER 10s display still manages to deliver impressive bright and natural colours just like a tablet with a regular screen.
The difference here Is the screen is a lot easier on your eyes and is also remarkably fingerprint free.
When we were viewing websites, including our own, and using applications we could still appreciate the colours – they just didn’t have the gloss of a regular display.
Think of it like this – the TCL NXTPAPER 10s is like looking at a colourful book with regular matte pages.
A tablet with a normal screen is like looking that same book but printed on glossy paper.
You’re still getting all the same information, the same look and feel and range of colours but the TCL NXTPAPER 10s just lacks the shine and glow that comes with a regular backlit screen.
The TCL NXTPAPER 10s is TUV-certified with a 73 per cent reduction in blue light passing through.
This is a huge advantage if you spend a lot of time looking at a screen.
Looking at a backlit screen on a computer or tablet will lead to sore or tired eyes.
In fact, Optometry Australia’s 2022 Vision Index Report said 88 per cent of surveyed Australians experienced eye fatigue while 86 per cent believed their child’s eyesight was also being impacted by constant screen time.
Health fund HCF Australia says there has been a 28.8 per cent increase in school aged children who require glasses or contact lenses between 2015 and 2020.
Even the World Health Organisation has recognised the fact that short sightedness is on the increase and predicted that half the population maybe myopic by 2050.
The surface of the TCL NXTPAPER 10s display has a slightly different texture then a regular tablet which comes in handy when typing, scrolling and writing on the screen.
So it not only looks like paper it also makes it feel slightly more paper-like as well.
The other remarkable feature is the clear viewing angle.
Even if you’re looking at the tablet sideways it has the same brightness and clarity as if you were looking at it front on.
That’s something that can’t be said for regular tablets because of the nature of the backlit screen and the reflections.
Design-wise the TCL NXTPAPER 10s is thin (8.3mm) and light (490g) and the screen has a narrow aspect ratio.
The bezels around the display are quite large when compared to the current crop of regular tablets.
On the performance side, the TCL NXTPAPER 10s is powered by an octa-core chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which can be expanded through the onboard microSD card slot.
The device could be a little more responsive, but it certainly didn’t detract from our enjoyment and use of the product.
Included with the TCL NXTPAPER 10s is it full keyboard cover If you prefer typing on a keyboard.
When you insert the tablet into the keyboard cover it asks if you want to enter PC mode – a new desktop that allows you to focus in on your files and notes while still being able to access productivity apps and a file manager.
There are also dedicated reading and writing apps so you can take full advantage of this paper like screen.
It has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera and has two speakers and two microphones if you need to take part in a video call or enjoy some content.
The TCL NXTPAPER 10s has an 8000mAh battery which will last a day or two because it doesn’t have to power a regular backlit screen.
So whether you’re using it for learning, entertainment, creativity or productivity – the TCL NXTPAPER 10s gives you plenty of time between charges.
The TCL NXTPAPER 10s is available now for $499 from Big W, Target, Mobileciti and other online retailers
