Jumper EZBook Pro – 13.3″ Metal 6GB Celeron N3450 Notebook

Jumper are pushing out yet another budget focused laptop, this time it looks more interesting than the EZbook 3 I reviewed. Why? Firstly it has a full metal build, so the lid and body are made out of alloy, so hopefully it will mean the keyboard is more firm without the flex the EZBook 3 has. Secondly, it will have 6GB of RAM, no doubt another piece of tech to use two Samsung LPDDR3 3GB RAM module...[Read More]

JDTab J01 Review Online – It Looked So Promising…

The review of the JD.com joint venture JDTab is now online, sadly this one despite the great build, screen and audio turned out Lto be a disappointment. Sadly let down by a weak GPU which means some demanding titles like Modern Combat 5 (As seen in the review below) weren’t at all playable unless you like playing slideshows? I hope the next model or revision has a decent more powerful SoC in...[Read More]

Onda Xiaoma 41 Apollo Lake Celeron N3450 Laptop First Impressions

An interesting notebook from Onda who I normally avoid for build quality issues, well at least in tablets. Called the Xiaoma 41, no not Xiaomi but Xiaoma as in Pony (Translated). Can’t help but feel they messed up on the name,  what a stupid naming scheme from them!  It’s very similar to the Chuwi Lapbook 14.1, the shame the exact same specs, Quad-core Intel, Celeron N3450, 4GB, 64GB e...[Read More]

iFive Mini 4S Firmware 1.05 Released

Update: I’ve flashed 1.05 on my own unit, lost everything so remember to backup data! So far nothing new, audio jack buzz is the same. If anything the ROM feels a little more fluid? The FNF iFive Mini 4S has another ROM update, version 1.05 is 502Mb in size doesn’t seem to have a changelog anywhere I can find. So I assume it’s a bug fix release, I haven’t flashed it yet as ...[Read More]

FNF iFive Pro2 – 9.7″ First Impressions & Unboxing Video

Second FNF iFive tablet for me, just like the iFive Mini 4S the build quality is great (The tablet) very well finished, nice textured leather-like rear. It’s got four speakers, they sound a little better than the smaller 7.9″ version, a little louder but still distort a lot when pushed to 100% volume. The screen is premium, typical IGZO 9.7″ 2048 x 1536 screen, very nice. 264 PPI...[Read More]
