Cube To Release Intel Core M3 Skylake Tablet 2016

Cube today have announced they will be releasing an Intel Skylake tablet next year, called the Cube i9. In a series of Weibo’s fighting back at Xiaomi’s posts on the Mi Pad 2 announcement. Cube replied that instead of budget low powered Atom tablets, their flagship tablet will be a new Skylake. Google Translate isn’t the best, but you get the idea from the Weibo (FYI Millet = Xia...[Read More]

Chuwi Vi8 Plus Coming December

What’s this a new Vi8 with an Cherry Trail Atom? According to Chuwi’s Weibo, December will see the launch of the new Chuwi Vi8 Plus. It looks like the Hi8 Pro, but in black? My guess is essentially it is, but like the Vi8 it will have the lower 1280 x 800 IPS panel and that’s it. I hope not, why not instead of the X5 Z8300 swap it out with a X5 Z8500 + 4GB of dual channel ram kee...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Plus Review Online, Battery life is back!

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...[Read More]

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Announced

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is now official and yes, as the rumors suggested it’s running an Atom X5 Z8500, 2GB of Ram. Windows 10 or Android 5.1. 7.9 inches 2048 x 1536 IPS screen and only 6.95mm thin. USB Type-C port. 6190 mAH battery and a light 322 grams. Without a doubt this looks like it could be the best 7.9- 8″ tablet with an all metal housing, laminated display. The storage options are 16...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Air 3G Quietly Downgraded To An Atom Z3735F

Thanks to a few members of the site and YouTube comments pointing out this one, it seems Teclast have quietly downgraded the Atom Bay Trail in the X98 Air 3G from the Atom Z3736F 2.16 Ghz to the Atom Z3735F 1.83Ghz. There has been no official word from Teclast on this change on Weibo or Teclast.com. My guess is they have simply run out of Z3736F tray’s and have switched to using their remain...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi10 First Batch Blues – Chinese Users Report Issues

Doesn’t seem like the Chuwi Hi10 is off to a good start, first the delays due to apparent heat issues with the Atom X5 X8300. And now issues with the first units that have shipped out, users are reporting touch screen issues, wifi problems and screen flicker since the screen is only running at only 50hz. My Chuwi Hi10 still hasn’t even left Chinese yet due to the heat issue. I certainl...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Plus Benchmarks, Speed, Game Test and Thermals

Today I uploaded the below video. Just covering the speed a little of the X98 Plus, with some benchmarks, battery life and a look at Asphalt 8 Airbourne. And the thermals. So far the good: Battery life, screen, and thermals. The performance is unimpressive, it almost feels as if Teclast’s engineers have limited the turbo duration to keep the temps down. I never expected much out of the lowes...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Plus Unboxing and First Impressions

DHL finally came through today, their customs dept stopped messing about with my X98 Plus and delivered it. Heres the unboxing and hands-on video. (I’ll have more in the next few days) As you can see in the video, the build is the same as the X98 Air III. The new square edge metal unibody housing. First impressions: eMMC is a Toshiba 064G70 and speeds are good. Performace is much like the Z3...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Pro Mod: Add A Full Sized USB Port

Ever wanted a full sized USB 2.0 port on your X98 Pro? I know I have, well forum member Idris has done just that. There is a spare USB header on the motherboard, which with a bit of soldering skill means you can wire up a USB pen drive internally or like what Idris has done add a female USB 2.0 connector. It also powers an external hard drive, so not bad. Handy for those that really must have a fu...[Read More]

Surface Pro 4 Hands On and Teclast X98 Plus DHL Delay

I would have had my Teclast X98 Air Plus today to start my review process. But DHL Spain is at it again, my shipment is on hold. Happens so often, takes 2 days to go from China, Germany and onto Spain. To then sit with DHL Spain for a week. I hope to at least have the X98 Plus this week now, but they still haven’t even called me back to at least find out what the issue is. I also have a Cube...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Air III Review (Video)

I’ve just finished up reviewing my Teclast X98 Air III, it Teclast’s budget Retina quad-core tablet. This model is the single OS Android 5.0 32GB version. It’s a mere $125 from Banggood.com with their coupon c930c6, so dirt cheap. Since it’s a Bay Trail Z3735F, its a step down from the Z3736F in the X98 Air 3G & Air II in terms of performance. Here’s is my full vi...[Read More]

Teclast X98 Pro+ A New X98 Pro Model For South Korea

Teclast Korea seems to have their own improved X98 Pro+ version. Now I don’t read Korean, but user YouJoon Park does and has pointed out it looks to have some unique features over the X98 Pro. The chipset remains the same Atom X5 Z8500 (2.24 Ghz) with 4GB of Ram, 64GB eMMC and dual OS. But it has something new, a GrafTech eGraf SS-610CU thermal solution (Aka heatsink). So Teclast is addressi...[Read More]
