Confused with all the X98 models? I compared and benchmarked the following models in these two videos. The Teclast X98 Air 3G (Dual OS), The X98 Pro (Dual OS) and the X98 Plus (Windows 10) I recently reviewed. What I didn’t know was the full battery life of the X98 Plus at time of this video as I hadn’t finished my full battery test. It beats them all with over 8 hours. All the benchma...[Read More]
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]
Edit: Seems Gearbest have 60 units more on sale, but at $179.99 now. So if you missed out on the $169.99 price, $179.99 is still a pretty good deal for a 64GB Air 3G with Windows 10. — Gearbest are having the best deal yet I’ve seen on the Teclast Air 3G, this is the latest 64GB model with Windows 10. And tomorrow only they are slashing $30 of the price. It’s now $169.99 for 48 h...[Read More]
I recently ordered a couple of cheap $185 X98 Air 3G’s for resale and although the Banggood listing said they were Windows 8.1 models, to my surprise both models have Windows 10 preinstalled from the factory. So Teclast stock, at least on Banggood.com is now shipping with Win 10. You can, of course, upgrade your Windows 8.1 X98 to Windows 10. But this version has the recovery as Win 10 which...[Read More]
Looks like Banggood.com have countered GearBests prices on the X98 Air 3G, they now have the Teclast X98 Air 3G 64GB for $185.99 using their dual boot 7% off coupon 3f3128 this is the cheapest yet I have seen the 64GB X98 Air 3G sell for to date. If you do find a better price please let us know in the comments. The Chuwi Vi10 has also dropped to $129 with the 7% off discount. I wonder if the price...[Read More]

I conducted a little experiment today, I pitted a recently updated X98 Air 3G running Windows 10 Home against another X98 Air 3G with the original Windows 8.1 Bing image. Both tablets are the C5J6 model and have identical 64GB Samsung eMMC drives. The results are in my short video below: Note* Both machines were run on battery power and both left to cool between the benchmarks.
Teclast have posted on their Weibo today, that the X98 Air 3G can update to the official Windows 10 release out today. (I’m updating mine now to test it out) According to Teclast, it’s working just fine, only one issue with an unknown device in the device manager. But they have released their X98 Air 3G C5JX Windows 10 drivers pack to fix this: Other models like the Air two to follow. ...[Read More]
Prices have been dropping in the last month, the Chuwi Vi10 is now only $140, and the Teclast X98 Air 3G 64GB model is now $202.95, both have free shipping included. All these price drops make me wonder if they are clearing out stocks for the up and coming new models with Windows 10 or next gen Atom chips? If you have found cheaper please let us know in the comments.
This is the latest 64GB revision of the Teclast X98 Air 3G, the C5J6. They all seem to be using Samsung eMMC drives now, but this is surely dependent on the batch and stocks Teclast have on hand. I’ve seen the 32GB version with BWIN, Toshiba and Hynix brand eMMCs. The price has really come down, $206 from Gearbest now. I think I paid well over $250 for the 32GB model dual boot when it was re...[Read More]
I’ve found which I think is the cheapest deal yet on the 64GB dual boot Teclast X98Air 3G, only $206 with free delivery. Hopefully soon we will see this tablet below $200 everywhere. And the Chuwi Vi10 Dual boot for $153.69 only about $4 dollars more than the limited $149 sale that was on Ali Express a few weeks ago. And then there is the Chuwi Hi8 which is up for pre order at $96 with coupo...[Read More]
Looking around on the online today I’ve noticed that Geekbuying.com have a 3 year anniversary sale on and the 64GB version of the Teclast X98 AIr 3G has dropped to $229 this is the lowest I have seen the 64GB version anywhere. And if you missed out on the $149 sale of the Chuwi Vi10, not to worry, seller OKQI have it listed for an even cheaper 143.99 and if you’re in Europe it’s ...[Read More]
