Performance and capabilities
The dual-core Kaby Lake 7th gen processor is clocked up to 2.6 GHz and it’s much better than any Mediatek, commonly installed in Chinese tablets. This new processor is designed for mobile devices, it has low power consumption and it’s made in the 14 nm technology. Compared to the sixth generation processors, it achieves up to 20-30% better performance and drains up to 20% less battery power.
Just like in full-size laptops, there is Windows 10 Home preinstalled here, so you can use a wide array of software and games. Thanks to 4 GB RAM it can be even used for demanding tasks like video or graphics editing, especially that you can add dedicated Wacom stylus, available separately. There is also a very fast 128 GB SSD disk, and if you want to expand the amount of available storage, you can add a TF card for additional 128 GB space for your files.
Graphics and cameras
The 10-point IPS screen can display images at a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 px. This panoramic, wide-view 2K touchscreen allows you to enjoy watching movies and playing games and fully immerse in entertainment. Sixth generation Intel HD graphics card is a popular GPU used in laptops and thanks to DirectX support, you can even play new, less demanding games on Mix Plus 2.
The 5.0MP rear and 2.0MP front cameras are a nice addition and although they are definitely not the same class as the one that can be found in smartphones, they allow for HD video conferencing or quite decent photos taken in good light.
Audiophiles will appreciate the high-quality sound with vibrant music coming from stereo speakers. Dual-channel WiFi uses the fast standard 802.11a / b / g / n and will load webpages instantly. It’s also perfect for online games where it’ll work without unnecessary slowdowns. 4300 mAh battery allows for about 4 hours of intense work on a single charge, which is more or less standard when it comes to similar tablets. The USB Type-C port also allows for fast charging, and can also work as a HDMI output, so you can plug it to the big screen.
One of the few things we didn’t like here is the plastic casing. It doesn’t look bad, but at this price almost all tablet manufacturers now offer a metal rear case that is more durable and just looks better.
Remember that to use it in the notebook mode, you need to purchase a keyboard, available separately on GearBest and in other chinese online stores. Since this tablet supports Bluetooth 4.0, it is a good idea to purchase a wireless keyboard for even greater convenience. If we were to evaluate it with a school grade, we give it a B+. All in all, this is really solid piece of electronics that would serve you well in many tasks.
