So we have the first Cherry Trail 8 inch dual boot, about time. I only hope Chuwi follow and do the same with the Vi8 Plus and Hi8 Pro. Here’s a quick look at the Android Rom, some benchmarks and a little gaming on the iwork8 Ultimate. Overall the rom is great, only 3 Chinese apps which are removable. The DPI set in the build.prop for the Rom is perfect for the screen, resulting in a sharp image and demanding games like Mortal Kombat X run very fluid thanks to that 1280 x 800 resolution. The speaker is super loud in Android, more than Windows for some reason.
I find myself liking the iwork8 Ultimate more as a dual boot. Temps in Android don’t get anywhere near as high as Windows maxing out around 65 degrees Vs around 85 degrees C in Windows.
I got this one from Banggood here and if you use coupon fcecc2 it’s only $89. It’s still the Windows 10 version but converted it to Dual OS myself. Use this guide -> How to convert the Cube iwork8 Ultimate to Dual Boot.
The only downside is the battery life isn’t very good. Around three and a half hours and if you game the whole time in Android it’s even less. Only the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 seems to get decent battery life for the smaller category of tablets with it’s larger 6700 mAh battery.
