So many tablet releases at the moment, my GearBest Teclast X3 Pro just arrived. Here’s the unboxing video with the stylus and keyboard below.
Nice surprise here is the X3 Pro doesn’t have the advertised Wireless N. But dual band Intel Wireless-AC. The keyboard I also received a few weeks ago and it’s covered in the above video along with a very quick look at the active stylus.
Some of my initial testing and points discovered using the X3 Pro for a day so far:
- Intel Dual Band AC 3165 and not single band 2.4Ghz! Finally! (M.2 type card and it has integrated BT 4.1)
- 8GB of RAM, but it’s only running at 1600 Mhz (The M3 6Y30 supports 1866Mhz max) The Cube i9’s 4GB of RAM runs at 1866Mhz…
- Same design and build as the X2 Pro as expected. Same large bezels, 16:9 screen and sharp corners.
- The Core M3-6Y30 reached 94 degrees on the GPU when benchmarking 3DMark 11. (Cube i9 reaches 88 max)
- Yet no throttling, but it was only 1 degree from doing so (Gaming it will throttling I imagine)
- FORSEE 128GB SSD, 500+ mbs reads & 140 writes+. 101GB free on first boot.
- Stylus seems accurate, but not quite as accurate as my N-trig Surface Pro 4 stylus.
- Battery life looks to be 4 to 5 hours only, 4500 mAH cells x 2.
- Benchmark results aren’t really better than my stock Cube i9 despite the 4GB of extra RAM. This was expected, extra ram doesn’t mean it will perform any better and it’s clocked slightly slower 1600 Mhz VBs 1866Mhz. It will jsut mean you can multitask better or run programs that need more than 4GB’s.
- The new hard fixed-angle keyboard is good, nice quality, but it has a fixed angle that either works for you or doesn’t.
- Trackpad is decent,it supports some Windows gestures.
I currently have this X3 Pro, the Tbook 11 written review to type up, The Chuwi HiBook, Teclast Tbook 10 reviews to work on and I’m expecting the Teclast X89 Kindow next week, so very busy. So the written rated reviews will take some time. If you want the latest on these new models, please subscribe to the TechTablets YouTube channel if you haven’t already. The more subscribers, the more leverage I will have to one day hopefully get review units from Huawei, Samsung, HP, Acer and Dell that want to see a large number of subscribers to the channel before they send review units.
