    Just do a damn read/write benchmark and you will get the results responding to a 1066MHz RAM instead of 1600MHz.

    I gave the results for both apps because I honestly don’t care about the finer details – you wanted one, the other guy preferred the other.  I can’t see myself worrying  all that much over the benchmark score for a Chinese tablet.

    Does the Type-C run the software I want it to run? – Yes (Lightroom CC, Sigma PhotoPro 6).

    Am I happy with it so far? – Yes, and if in a couple of months I’m still happy or if I’ve changed my mind I’ll come back and say.

    To be honest, the one thing that made me choose the iWork10 probably doesn’t even rate in your evaluation – it’s one if very, very few models that runs a 64-bit OS out-of-the-box.  Real world usage, not some hypothetical benchmark.

     

    And FFS chill.

    Hans, did u contact gearbest.com with the complaints regarding the tablet and their false advertisement regarding the hardware this tablet contains?

    Not yet, but I will in the next couple of days. I wanted to write a 1star review, but I couldnt yet, because I did not buy the tablet through my own account; my friend bought it for me with my shipping address. So I asked him if I could write a review on his account, you just can write a review if you bought it through your account. Maybe it’s just Gearbest fault and they replaced some components or asked the manufacturer for a custom build cheaper design. So thats the reason why just a few people who bought it through Gearbest got the bad RAM and other problems. Because the tablet is strangly “way” cheaper on Gearbest compared to other sellers or Cubes own shop. I even contacted Cube but they said they wont give me any help nor information of any kind and I need to contact the reseller with any complains or warranty issues.

    I have both the Type C from GearBest, Type C from Cube china directly purchased and the one with microUSB 3.0 which was also purchased directly from Cube China. I will check later if it is really just GearBest selling the one with cheaper RAM or every Type C model has the cheaper RAM.

    “BTW lot of z8300 devices are shipped with 1066mhz RAM” o_0, it’s not “a lot” it’s “a few”, and I already quoted above that it was noticed already on a reviews/test blog of a Teclast tablet a few weeks ago. Using 1066MHz ram seems to be the “new trick” of the Chinese right now to get some extra $$$ out of every sold unit for them, which is disgusting, because I would had paid the 5-10$ more to get a fast tablet instead of a slow brick.

    yeah actually you are right, I have looked at geekbench scores again, and only a few models have low ram score. I should have looked at those scores more carefully before purchasing chuwi hibook. Now I understand why it was cheap, and why performance in windows is lower than expected. It was never advertised to have 1600 mhz ram so unfortunately I cannot complain to anyone. I hope you can get a refund.

    Hans Sprungfield, I provided the cpu-z numbers as someone else was interested in them and asked people to provide them. If you have a problem with that, then take it up with them; or better, remain silent. Your tone that you have had with some users of this forum is frankly not appropriate. You need to calm down.

    Same problem here:

    • The ram is definitely not ddr3l but cheap normal ddr3 set at 1066 MHz ram
    • Toshiba ssd
    • no USB 3.0 with the type-c plug

     

    For the ram settings: check either the bios or a non buggy program, e.g. windows itself:

    wmic MemoryChip get BankLabel, Capacity, MemoryType, TypeDetail, Speed, ConfiguredVoltage, MaxVoltage, MinVoltage, Manufacturer, Model, Name

    output:

    BankLabel  Capacity    ConfiguredVoltage  Manufacturer         MaxVoltage  MemoryType  MinVoltage  Model  Name             Speed  TypeDetail
    A1_BANK0   4294967296  1500               Hynix Semiconductor  1500        24          1500               Physical Memory  1066   4

     

    Since nothing except the ram type was advertised, we can not complain about them. Even tho it is an unbelievable cheap move from cube.

    However I will complain to GearBest about the ram issue and demand a partial refund. If they refuse it, it is time for PayPal’s buyers guarantee since the product does not match the advertised components.

    Hi guys

    I just received my long waited iWork 10 Flagship (I15-TL) ordered from aliexpress, which does send me the OTG, the USB 3 type C cable, a European charger (I’m from Italy) and also (wow) earphones! 😀

    I have a question, if you please, for you guys who known this tablet before me: what should I use to charge it? The type C cable or just a regular one I already own from previous smartphones and tablets? Also, does the tablet charges if it’s completely off (nor android, nor windows booted) and connected to the plug?

     

    Thanks a lot for paying attention

    see you soon

    It will only charge using the Type C Cable. The cable Cube provides is not very good so you may discover you need to be a little bit more forceful than you would normally be when sticking it to the tablet – the connector has to go all the way in.

    thanks but does the tablet need to be ON? I tried to charge it while it was completely OFF and it seems to me that nothing changed, even if I treid only for a few minutes…

    Mine charges even when off. A blinking blue LED on the front indicates charging.
