    I have one on order, should arrive in a week or so.
    The only worry is the screen. Small chance it’s not a One Glass Solution display, not fully laminated. It’s from JDI, while the other same spec tablets, like the Chuwi Hi9 Air and the Teclast T10 use one from Sharp, wich is fully laminated.

    Edit: I was right. Here’s a quick unboxing from Alldocube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LCUkXXpx6I

    I have received my unit.
    Quick pro and cons for those interested:

    Pro:
    – Great build quality, plastic buttons though, but they feel alright
    – Screen is quite good, nice colours
    – Fast
    – Speakers seem better then other brands, also go loud enough for me
    – Stock rom, no bloat, only google bloat 😉

    Cons:
    – Non laminated screen, with no auto brightness sensor
    – Screen brightness does not go very high, but does go quite low
    – Light bleed buttom and right side. Not noticable during normal use, you can see it on boot, and (probably) videos. Did not test yet. Your mileage may vary with your model (edit: not noticible after watching some videos)
    – My unit had a bug where everytime the screen went off ( via button or sleep ) you couldn’t wake it, only with a forced 10 second boot. Fixed by clearing cache and emmc via recovery. Again, this might be just my unit (edit: seems to be a software issue, so imho not really a problem)
    – No updates so far

    Battery is smaller than comparable models, but have not had time to test. It seems ok.
    At the moment you can grab this tablet for 154 euro’s or so, via banggoood with a coupon. Seems a good price to me.

    seems like a rather big problem, i guess together with the non laminated screen the m5 is off my shopping cart. Still waiting for more reviews for the helio x20 tablets, cant decide between it and the mt8176/3 and hope chris does a comparison video soon

    Chris made a video for the Teclast T10 and the Chuwi Hi 9 air. In the Chuwi video he mentioned he would still prefer the T10. The Voyo i8 Max has too big bezels for me, also looks like it’s non-laminated. The Binai G10 Max i didn’t choose because i don’t know the brand.
    I guess it’s a toss-up between the T10 and Hi 9 Air. Both great screens.

    Mine’s the same as yours. But here it works fine.
    You could try clearing app cache and data from all google apps in settings, or the cache in recovery menu. Does the browser app store work?
    Also searching google found some hits on this issue. Perhaps an awnser is there.

    Yes tried clearing cache but still same issue. I can’t open chrome it gives me error so using default browser I tried Google play store and the web opens but still can’t open the app. Also it doesn’t even let me add google account either shows me black screen on google play

    I would try factory reset from recovery mode (volume up+power) again, (wipe everything) if it fails again i would try to reflash the stock firmware posted above. But that might be risky. I would try googling for awnsers before attempting that.

    For those interested, cube released an updated firmware for this tablet on 51cube.com.
    However, i would not recommend installing it. It does not have Google Apps, starts in Chinese and has some bloatware in it.
    I tried a selective firmware upgrade with sp flash tool trying to keep personal stuff intact, but that leads to a unstable rom.
