For those who do not like long words and objectivity- the tablet is good, but not a clear leader, the weakest point of the tablet is the keyboard cover. It is much better than everything that has been presented on the Chinese market before, and the filling is quite good for any office tasks and light games, but it does not reach the convenience of a laptop. However, under the cut, I’ll tell you as detailed as possible.
So, specifications: Processor: Intel Atom Z3735D Quad Core 1.3GHz up to 1.8GHz
Internal memory: 64 GB SSD
RAM: 2 GB
Display: 1920 × 1200 10.1 "
Dimensions: 257 * 171 * 10.5mm
Built-in 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11n.
Expansion ports: Headphone jack, HDMI, Mini-USB with OTG (no full-sized USB), TF card.
Two cameras, both rear and front at 2mp.
Features: GPS navigation.
Battery: 8400mAh Li-Polymer
Quite a good performance. Now in order.
In the kit, there were two OTG microUSB-USB cables, the seller carefully wrote that he had put the second one just in case. It turned out to be a little crooked, which, however, does not interfere with work.
Charging. Charges 9 Volts, 2 amperes, and only from the outlet, there is no USB adapter.
Case. It was ordered separately and cost an additional $ 30. The case is very easily soiled, collects absolutely everything.
Keyboard cover. There is no Cyrillic alphabet, which promised a great opportunity to learn blind dialing. For whom this is a significant minus - there is stickers with Russian letters. F1-F12 keys are available when you press the Fn button, that is, as on the Eee PC: the function buttons and the Home / End / PgUp / PgDown buttons are placed on the top row. So, of course, it’s more convenient than if it were the other way around, but it’s inconvenient to compile:
Fn in place of Ctrl. Alas.
Keyboard magnetic stripe:
The weakest point of the device, with the inconvenient location of the tablet on an uneven surface, goes away at a time.
This is how the tablet looks when assembled:
And so in disassembled:
The tablet itself. Glossy to pop. A two-megapixel camera, an indicator of its operation and a light sensor are visible from above.
Other, equally glossy photos from the same angle
And no less easily soiled than a tablet:
Bottom connector for connecting to the keyboard. The paint is gradually erased:
The Windows touch key is also visible.
There is nothing on the right, on the left are all possible outputs:
They are completely standard. MiniJack, MiniHDMI, memory card slot, MicroUSB, charger connector. The microphone hole is visible on the left.
Above, the controls are also completely standard for tablets. Sleep key, volume rocker and charge indicator.
The back of the tablet is feminine red. (—I want a little red one!)
An amateur, but it looks quite organic. There are options for yellow and blue coloring. The manufacturer guessed with a new fashion on bright devices.
On the side is a lid with a 3G modem. Heavily opened, eventually scratched the cover to hell.
Build Quality Nothing backlash, no creaks, buttons do not fall apart. The back cover is plastic.
The only difference from desktop Windows 8 is the on-screen keyboard button:
The keyboard itself is quite convenient for itself, and appears when the cover is turned off and the focus is on the input point or when the key from the image above is pressed:
Performance The proprietary Windows Experience Index measured 3.9 points, giving:
To the processor - 5.9
Chart 3.9 (smallest)
Graphics for games - 4.1
Hard drive - 6.95
Memory - 4.5
Predictably, you can't stretch a lot of parrots on a discrete graphics card.
Video from YouTube 1080p slows down (However, it slows down on the desktop), but movies with the same resolution are shown perfectly. Lightweight toys 2-3 years old are working
. Owners launched versions of Stalker and MOBA games - no problem.
Regarding memory, here is the CrystalDiskMark plate:
Battery is smart. Enough for 7-8 hours of continuous operation without recharging, 8400mah is enough for such power for the eyes. Without fear, I take a tablet without a charger. A full day without charging may not be enough, but to work in places where there is no computer is always welcome.
BonusesGPS. Works. I found out about it only at the time of writing, running no problems found.
3G modem. With the advent of free rates
this modem finally made sense. It works, regularly receives the Internet, if there are free 15,000 rubles, you can buy a 4g modem and change it.
Cameras. Both are complete slag and exist only for skype, they are not capable of anything else. What, however, was to be expected - taking pictures on a tablet with Windows is a bad manners.
Also included was a bonus MS Office 360 for 1 year andtwo devices (mobile and desktop) and a licensed version of Windows. The version of “One Language” in which only one localization language is available and the original language was English, but it was not difficult to change it to Russian. There will be questions like - I will answer in PM.
Results Minuses Like the vast majority of devices they have. But most of them are somehow related to the case.
Spontaneous inclusion in a dream. Since there is no indication of the cover closing on the case, as on laptops, the tablet cannot understand when it is necessary to turn off the peripherals (touchpad and keyboard) and when the case is closed, it can turn itself on spontaneously and discharge the battery. It is treated with a complete shutdown, hibernation, or a self-made program that turns off the periphery when going to sleep, and turns it on when waking up.
Inconvenient keyboard. Fn in place of Ctrl, F1-F12 only when you press Fn, and the lack of Cyrillic alphabetical keys. From a recent moment on the market there are cases / keyboards with Russian layout
One position open tablet. It’s impossible to flip the display to a specific angle as in a laptop, this is a big minus of such cases.
Abrasion over time of the paint on the tablet in places of contact with the cover.
No full size USB.
Pros Excellent screen 1920 × 1200.
Full Windows 8.1. Despite the complete drain of Windows on desktop computers, on devices with a touch display, the OS works perfectly. As if written for them =)
Convenience of working with both a laptop and a tablet, no difficulties with connecting / disconnecting. Tired of the cover, unhooked it and use it further without it.
Compactness. It weighs less than a netbook and even less a laptop and takes up little space in the bag.
Sufficient tablet performance.
The installed OS takes up 3 gigabytes of space on the SSD.
Alternatives were selected based on the concept of “a tablet on which you can work like a netbook”, that is, with a plug-in keyboard without hemorrhoids with BT devices. There were not so many of them:
There are no obvious leaders (only a littlethe new Teclast x10hd), even after a few months from the purchase, the tablet holds on decently. A common minus is the lack of tablets with RAM more than two gigabytes, in the Chinese market they are not, in the global not so much
, and if you take the upper price barrier of 30000r, then only two
If you analyze the market without paying attention to China (the ruble helps to compare prices, huh), then devices with such characteristics as the hero of the review almost not
