Teclast F15 Review

Buy One $390

The Teclast F15 is the first 15.6″ Gemini Lake laptop from the typical brands I review. The build is excellent with a great finish. It has 8GB of DDR4 2133Mhz dual channel RAM and is powered by the common Celeron N4100.

Performance of this type of CPU is above average, the laptop feels quick and snappy thanks to the 8GB of RAM where most N4100 laptops have only 4GBs. The SATA3 256GB SSD is 2280 in size, M.2 spec and has good overall speeds for this type of drive.

The screen is fully laminated (OGS) 1920 x 1080 IPS. It’s naturally very reflective being covered with glass, but nothing a decent matte anti-glare screen protector couldn’t fix. With a maximum 200 lux brightness, the screen isn’t very bright. But for indoor use, I found it to be fine and normally ran with around 40% brightness.

Below is the Teclast F15 Review video:

The keyboard is very good, spacious and with good key spacing. It even has a number pad which is very handy for those that need it for work etc. The touchpad is big, very big. Like Macbook large and it works well. Palm rejection is fine and the accuracy is good even with fine movements. For those that use touchpads and not a mouse, you’ll like this one.

Overall the Teclast F15 is a great 15.6″ Gemini Lake laptop, just the price isn’t quite as cheap as I would have hoped for. It currently sells for about $395 USD in Aliexpress or $399 on Gearbest, but considering it has the 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD the extra over say the $300 Chuwi Lapbook Pro is worth it as that laptop has only 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.
