My Teclast X98 Plus review is now online. This new 9.7″ X5 Z8300 + 4GB Ram Retina tablet from Teclast, isn’t the most powerful when it comes to gaming. But it makes up for this delivering the best battery I’ve seen to date in a Chinese tablet. It’s possible to browse the web and watch movies for more than 8 hours on a single charge. Something I hadn’t seen on a tablet reviewed here until now. You should be able to get over 9 hours if you set flight mode on, lower the brightness and just watch movies.
It’s clear to me that Teclast’s goal with the X98 Plus wasn’t performance (Not with a Z8300 to start with) but to offer the best possible battery life we had been lacking on the new Cherry Trails up until now.
So for those after a 4:3 tablet good for light tasks and don’t plan to game much this tablet is definitely worth a look. If you want the best Atom 9.7″ gaming performance and dual boot, the Teclast X98 Pro is still the best option even with its limited battery life and heat.

Hopefully, Teclast will release this tablet with 4G/3G and dual boot soon.
