    any chance of a tread started for us who have this tablet.

    anyone know if this can be upgraded with an SSD perhaps?

    if so would it be possible to migrate the dual boot somehow ?

    i see the back casing can be opened by small screws under the kickstand .

    Hi,

    It can’t be upgraded, it’s a fixed soldered eMMC on the mainboard.

    I will have mine in less than 5 days. I hope it will worth it 🙂

    And I’m gonna make a full review of this tablet aswell. So I will be able to compare with the Chuwi hi12.

    clearly some issue here.

    Oh I see. I will check this issue then.

     

    But when you go to bed, the best idea with every tablet is just to turn it off 🙂

    still shouldn’t  drain to zero in idle within 8 hours. (this was on the android OS)

    i’ll try idle on Windows tonight see is it the same.

    the Android OS received an official OTA update which is great to see.

    Howdy,

    How’s the build quality?

    Is the stock rom up for download?

    Does cube upgrade their androids?  …  is it likely to get marshmellow?

     

    Thnx

    Hello 🙂

     

    I am pretty busy at the moment, so I only turned it on few minutes.

    But I can already say that the build quality is excellent ! It feel really ”premium” in hand and it have a really good grip.

    For the Rom I should check that… And for the Android, I received it with the version 5.1.

    But I have an issue with the Android boot.. It simply can’t detect the WiFi. It work fine on Windows, but when I go to Android it just can’t find my internet box..

    One of the best things is the focaltech touch panel used is the same as the Cube i9, very fluid and accurate the touch responce. It’s really nice. I love the Hi12’s screen, but this iwork12 with the better keyboard and kickstand is looking like it might even take on the Hi12 I think.

    And the speakers I have to say are slightly better than the Hi12’s. Don’t worry, I’ll be comparing them both and have some videos on the iwork12 on YouTube this week. Finally my 4G internet is getting fixed and I will be able to download freely again and upload without a data cap.

    Oh yes that’s true ! It’s really responsive, on Android or Windows. For me the kick-stand is okay, but it’s kinda shaky when you turn it, look like it’s not perfectly fixed to the body of the tablet.

     

    For the keyboard, I was expecting a better keys feeling. I mean.. the return of the keys are a bit weird, it feel like they are gonne just pop out from the keyboard, but the build quality is just as nice as the tablet itself and the connection with the pins are perfect ! It stick perfectly with the tablet.

    Too bad there is a real lack of USB ports on this model. But I think it’s enough for most of the people here. I use the OTG port for my mouse, and the USB 3.0 port for my external hard disk.

    The speakers are better than what I was expecting. Listening to some dubstep with it and it feel pretty good for a tablet.

     

    The battery life feel okay, but when it’s on high brightness, the battery go down pretty quickly.

    i personally find the sound very thin and useless for say a movie.
    i have the original Mipad which has much more dept to the sound so i compare it to that.

    coming from windows running on an SSD to emmc its extremely slow. quite frustrating at times with a minute wait for some programs to open.

    multi tasking isn’t an option on the windows end.

    the Android OS is a lot more fluent and responsive.

    Of course Sean, but like you said, it’s emmc, you can’t expect a wonderful speed.

    But for me it’s quite fast. I can open most of the things in few seconds and the screen is really responsive.

    For the sound it’s like most of the dual boot tablet. It’s okay when you want to show a quick vid to your friend or whatever. But sure you should use headphones most of the time.

     

    Also, I would like to add a bad point : the micro SD slot is HORRIBLE. It’s so hard to make the card fix in it ! I had to use a paperclip to slide it in…

    Well, now I have the tablet for several more days, I can add few things..

     

    First, I don’t lost battery while letting it on standby. I saw some people complaining about that, but I really don’t have this problem. By letting it on standby for more than 3 hours, I only lost 2% of battery, which is really great.

    About the battery life, it’s really good ! Especially when you look on Windows. I was expecting the OS to eat the battery in few hours, but I can use YouTube with 25% brightness for 7H30/8H. With light gaming I go over 5 or 5H30 on Android.

     

    About the sound… well.. bad (or good ?) thing : the sound on Android is like REALLY REALLY better than on Windows ! Listening to the same song on android and Windows, you will notice that the sound is really bad on the Windows side.. have buzz and too much squeaky sounds, even if it’s still okay for the level of the tablet.

     

    About charging time.. well, it’s alright too ! Using the original charger, I can get a full charge in pretty quickly. I don’t have a real estimated time yet, but I know that when I go to sleep at mindnight, and then waking up at 8, it’s already done charging. So.. you can use it the whole day and just charging when you sleep.

     

    About the Wifi : perfect ! I have barely the same download speed than on my laptop.. (which cost.. a lot) so it’s really perfect when it come to downloading stuff. But If you go a little too far from the box, with a wall between it, we start to have some problems..

     

    I will put more tests on it when I get my micro SD for it.. I bought the best quality of micro SD, so I will know how fast the mirco SD slot can get. and also will try the performance result and the exact battery life.

     

    But for the moment I can say it’s a really good tablet that Worth it ! Especially with the keyboard. I don’t have the hi12, but according to Chris review, I think it can be a really good choice instead of the Chuwi one.
