This tablet computer was released just eight months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older tablets.
Quite High Rear Camera Resolution
With a rear camera resolution of 8 megapixels, the Motion R12 has one of the higher rear camera resolutions amongst tablet computers of this age. The rear camera resolutions of tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the R12 range from 0.3MP to 8.1MP, and the average rear camera resolution is 4.9MP.
Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity
When compared to other recently released tablets that we have assessed the internal storage capacity of, the Motion R12's internal storage capacity of 256 gigabytes is one of the largest. The average internal storage capacity of new tablets is 54GB, and the internal storage capacity range from 4GB to 520GB.
Very Large Screen Size
Across all the comparable spec tablets that are a similar age to the R12 the screen sizes range from 7" to 14", and the average screen size is 9.2". With a screen size of 12.5 inches, the Motion R12 has a fairly large screen size compared to most of the other recently released similar spec tablets.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This tablet computer has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many comparable spec tablets that have been available for the last year.
Quite Large Processor Cache
The Motion R12 has one of the larger processor caches (4 megabytes) amongst similar spec tablets of this age. Comparable spec tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the R12 have processor caches of between 0.5MB and 4MB.
+4 More reasons for
Very Large Internal Memory
When compared to other tablets that are less than a year old that we have assessed, the Motion R12's internal memory of 8 gigabytes is one of the largest. Across all the newly released similar spec tablet computers the internal memory range from 0.5GB to 8GB.
Fairly Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Similar spec tablets that have been available for a comparable time to the R12 have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.1GHz and 3.3GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 2.3GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 2.9 gigahertz, the Motion R12 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst comparable spec tablet computers of this age.
Very Short Battery Recharge Time
The battery recharge times of recently released tablets range from 2h to 6h, and the average battery recharge time is 3.3h. With a battery recharge time of only 2.5 hours, the Motion R12 has one of the shorter battery recharge times amongst similar spec tablet computers of this age.
4 Reasons Against
Not 3G Compatible
Most comparable spec tablet computers that are less than a year old are not 3G compatible. The Motion R12 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.
Not 4G Compatible
The Motion R12 is not 4G compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other tablets that have been around for around the same time as the R12 are also not 4G compatible.
The average weight of latest comparable spec tablets is 550g, and the weights range from 250g to 1.4kg. When compared to other comparable spec tablets that have been available for around the same time as the R12 that we have checked the weight of, the Motion R12's weight of 1.3 kilograms is one of the heaviest.
When compared to other tablet computers that are a similar age to the R12 that we have checked, the width of the Motion R12 of 328 millimeters is one of the widest. The average width of tablets that are a comparable age to the R12 is 210mm.
