If there is no Windows application you need to have/run then I’d recommend removing Windows and installing LinuxMint 19.1 (Xfce or Mate desktop).

Great. When and where did you buy it, and what is the firmware/BIOS version?
Btw, Cinnamon is a really nice desktop but Xfce or Mate should run a little faster – important on the Celeron N3450

New 4.20 kernel has patches which fixed the TP problem for Teclast F6 Pro and F7

yes, it should work. But of course it will be slower than your Xiaomi laptop.
Something to try in Windows. Turn off “hybrid sleep” if it’s turned on. Or, if it’s not turned on, try turning it on…
1. Go into “Control Panel” and click the “Power Options”.
2. Next to the plan that is currently selected click “Change Plan Settings”.
3. Now click “Change Advanced Power Settings”.
4. Open the “Sleep Setting” and find “…[Read more]
I don’t use Windows so can’t help you there.
What version of Linux?
If you didn’t already, try first Ubuntu 18.04 and if that does not work then try v18.10.
Another thing you could try is install Manjaro Linux to a USB drive and boot from that, then if it still does not work see this…[Read more]

What Linux distro (distribution) is this, eg. LinuxMint, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Manjaro… and which desktop, eg. Cinnamon, Mate, Xfce, etc.
You shouldn’t have to change the default BIOS settings and almost all Linux versions should run faster than Windows 10. If you want to maximize Linux performance install either Lubuntu, Xubuntu, or Manjaro…[Read more]
Plus if you want help with partition related stuff it’s best to post a screen capture of your partition setup so people can see what you’re talking about.
probably screenshots of the pertinent Macrium Reflect screens could help too.
Well in any event it’s great that Arch Linux is now running fairly well on this relatively inexpensive notebook. So what are the things that do NOT work?
Bluetooth? Battery gauge? Brightness change? Audio volume change? Suspend/Hibernate? etc.
Re your ap6212 problem see this if you didn’t a…[Read more]
Good feedback. That is a driver for touchscreen, so not too surprising it might clash with some machines’ touchpads esp those that don’t have a touchscreen.
Should at least work for Manjaro and Antergos since those are based on Arch. Ubuntu and LinuxMint are based on Debian and often have much different releases, drivers, etc.
Note however that…[Read more]
That doesn’t seem right. Maybe a buggy driver in Ubuntu? Try booting from a Manjaro Xfce Live-USB drive and testing with that.
Also try a different browser, say Falkon browser which is supposedly a light-weight browser.
You see normal CPU and disk usage during this high temp?
I think @Chupa may be onto something. NOTHING I did would revive my EZB3P with the same problem. And believe me, I tried everything.
Then after setting it aside for a LONG time (a couple months I think) just for insanity’s sake I tried it once more and the darn thing booted up and worked fine.
So I’m guessing there is some other battery on the…[Read more]
They both support Linux. Some (not all) EZbook users have had trouble with the touchpad not working under Linux. This is a problem that various notebooks have not just Jumper. There are updated drivers in the works for this though depending on which touchpad yours has (they swap parts a lot when building them). I would go with the Lapbook SE…[Read more]
Which version of Ubuntu, 18.10? Maybe try LinuxMint Mate, XFCE, or Xubuntu. These are lighter weight (faster) distro’s based on Ubuntu.
Or perhaps LMDE3 (Linux Mint Debian Edition 3) or AntiX both light weight distro’s based on Debian Linux.
Also the Falkon browser for Linux is lightweight and fast.
And don’t forget to install and run the Timeshi…[Read more]
Also, you can use a USB3.0-to-Ethernet adapter to get wired networking or a USB-WiFi adapter for wireless.
Both are cheap and the drivers are usually built into Ubuntu, Manjaro, Mint, etc.
Check on the user forums for Ubuntu or other which one works the best as there are MANY different manufacturers of these.
