Hands-On With The Teclast X6 Pro (Finally!)

Hands-On With The Teclast X6 Pro (Finally!)

This has been a long wait, there were some apparent supply issues with the Core M3-7Y30 this tablet uses so when it was first released only a small quantity was shipped out. Some lucky owners have had this tablet for months but I’ve only just got mine. Below is my first hands-on and use after a few days with the X6 Pro. First impressions are very good but some of the typical Chinese tablet issues like low output speakers.

02:21 – Weight (keyboard + tablet)
02:43 – Keyboard & ports
05:33 – SSD hatch
06:26 – Unlocked bios
07:41 – Screen & benchmarks
10:59 – Sound & sample
11:29 – Stylus
12:05 – Linux
12:16 – First impressions
12:47 – Pros & Cons (so far)

But as expected my second time with this amazing 12.6″ IPS 2880 x 1920 3:2 aspect ratio screen (first seen in the Voyo i7 I reviewed) it’s right up there as one of the best I’ve used and the best on a Chinese tablet. 99% sRGB, 84% NTSC and 86% Adobe RGB colour space coverage is impressive beating even my old Surface Pro. It’s also fully laminated. The tablet is selling for $499 with coupon GB_TeX6Pro here which is a bit pricey for what it is despite the great screen. Core M3-7Y30, 8GB of RAM, 38Wh battery and 256GB SSD.

But it’s not all great, under load the tablet hits 97 degrees C no thermal throttling but it’s only a few degrees away from it. A definite candidate for my copper heatsink and thermal pad mods.

The type cover is a quality one, good to type on with nice key travel and feedback. No real issues apart from the touchpad palm rejection is poor when typing it can be a pain.

The stylus I have doesn’t work for some odd reason even with a new battery (One isn’t supplied)

  1. Almost the perfect 2-in-1 were it not for the faulty stylus reports & the pricetag. $500 base price +$100 for kb+pen is insane.

  2. Same model as me so that’s two with non-working stylus’s

    Can you test full screen video playback. I have quite serious issues with screen tearing on video playback (fast scenes).
    A calibration profile for the screen can be found here: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-Transformer-3-Pro-T303UA-GN050T-Convertible-Review.189657.0.html

    The stylus of the Chuwi Surbook works in principle (with the Surbook drivers not not with the original ones), but touch and Pen is inverted… Maybe the problems with your stylus is driver related?

    It looks like the SSD is not capeable of DevSlp http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/guide-improving-battery-life-on-windows-enabling-deeper-c-states.815602/, maybe because of this my X6 never enters lower Package C-States as C2, leading to a quite bad battery life. (Only about 4-4,5h). You can check this with ThrottleStop. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-throttlestop/

  4. Are there any Android tablets that use this panel?

  5. @TeclastOfficial Posted comment (May 11, 2019) The equipment works well but watch the terrible manufacturing defects. Not flat and I’m worried about bending because it seems that it could break the glass. Crack noise. Really disappointing 🙁 Pics here: https://techtablets.com/forum/topic/teclast-x6-pro/page/3/#post-151729

  6. I’ve been thinking about this new(ish) model and wondering if I still wouldn’t be better off paying the EUR499 to 599 being asked for the Eve Tech V base model. I know it’s a two-year-old design but it has a lot going for it for not much more.

    Any thoughts on this?

    • I heard they had serious trouble in the past and I prefer brands that are consolidated like Teclast that is 20 years old.

  7. I’ve had this tablet for months. It’s a great laptop; although the stylus TL-T6 just does NOT work.

  8. Hi Chris
    what about battery & autonomy?

  9. Very good! I might get one for myself, just wating some discounts from AliExpress or Banggood, unfortunately Gearbest’s shipping costs are outrageous for my Country.
