Ouch! On one hand, we see a lot of love in other aspects of the Excite 10, but when it comes to taking photos with its 5-megapixel snapper, they’re simply terrible beyond belief. Well, it’s quite apparent that low contrast images suffer from a lot of over-exposure, and on top of that, details are simply too indiscernible to make out small things in the background. Forget about trying to shoot anything in low light, as its quality is diminished by a heavy presence of noise muddying up its shot.

Faring poorly with still images, it doesn’t surprise us in the very bit that it’s also lacking in the video recording department. Limited to a maximum 720p video capture, its poor quality is once again evident by its inaccurate colors, super soft details, and aggressive exposure. Audio recording is decent enough to accept, but overall, there’s nothing to like about this one.

Between the Toshiba media player and the stock ICS one, we’d still choose the latter mainly because of its cool looking 3D carousel for browsing through our catalog of songs – plus, we’re given a few different equalizer settings. 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.

As expected, the tablet fares well when it comes to playing high-definition videos, as it’s able to perfectly play our test video that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution. Additionally, it has support for a wide array of codecs, like XviD, MPEG-4, and H.264, to ensure you’re covered with all your video watching needs.

Out of convenience sake, the Toshiba Excite 10 offers a separate microHDMI out port for all our multimedia sharing needs. Connected to a high-definition television, we’re able to get that ever useful mirrored experience.
