Nextbook NXW8QC16G Inexpensive 8″ 16GB Windows Tablet

E Fun’s Nextbook NXW8QC16G is a contender in the lowest-end Windows tablet segment. This $150 slate has an 8″ display at 1280×800 pixels and the basic but usable for everyday tasks Intel Atom Z3735G quad-core processor. Unfortunately, the screen is based on TN panel technology, so it can’t provide as wide viewing angles as the IPS displays. RAM and storage are on the small side, with 1GB and 16GB capacity, respectively. These massively limit usability of pre-installed Windows 8.1. In this case, hardware can handle only very basic computing with a small numbers of browser tabs and apps opened simultaneously and you can install a very limited number of apps from the Windows Store. At least, you can expand storage via a microSD card slot with up to 64GB.

With the specs and price, (especially Black Friday $50 discount at Walmart), the Nextbook NXW8QC16G competes against the 100-dollar HP Stream 7 with a 7″ display. The Stream 7 is equipped with IPS and 32GB storage, but the Nextbook adds a micro HDMI video output as an extra feature.

The tablet has dual cameras. The rear cam sports a 2MP sensor, while the front shooter has a 0.3MP one. There are Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections and a micro USB port. The battery has a capacity of 4000 mAh. We have no info on battery life nor dimensions and weight of the slate.

A free 1-year subscription for Office 365 Personal software suite is included in price.

E Fun offers a 10.1″ variant too. It is definitely a better buying choice, since it delivers 32GB of internal storage and a keyboard dock for only $30 more.

    I need to have the charger port replaced. My regular computer repairman said he couldn’t do it that it would have to be sent back to the factory. Need info on what to do.

    Thank you Dawn your solution worked.

    At the password screen tap the icon in the lower left corner then hit on screen keyboard. Make it bigger by stretching from lower left corner. Hit shift 30-40 times then hit the power icon in the right corner of the screen then hit restart. Then it should take u to the options to troubleshoot then factory reset. It worked for me.

      Generally, you can enter the factory reset feature on all Windows 8 tablets by holding Volume Down key while powering on the tablet (Power + Volume Down). Then choose Troubleshoot option on the screen and tap Reset PC option. I assume you know your personal files will be lost after the reset.

      The tablet has a TN-based LCD panel as opposed to IPS, so color inversion at certain viewing angles is usual.

      Are you maybe referring to the Netxbook 10.1?http://laptoping.com/specs/product/nextbook-nxw10qc32g/
      In the Q&A section of that page, you can see other folks have problems with powering up, too. Solution is still unknown. It appears to be a wide-spread problem, so I would recommend contacting your seller and ask for support.

      No, unfortunately. RAM isn’t upgradeable on the NextBook and other similar tablets.

    • Danijel Z

      Yes, it has a standard 3.5mm audio jack you can find on virtually all modern tablets and laptops. So you’ll be able to listen books and music. The tablet uses Wi-Fi connection to get you online, so if you already have working Wi-Fi, you will not need any other additional connection and accomanying costs.
