Tour at the factory in Guangzhou that is now mass manufacturing Allwinner A80T based Teclast P98 Air tablets selling in China.

I thought I did this test. But Search tells me no. So it’s a good thing I happened to do it today, unplanned.
I’m not sure which version of the Note 3 this is, quad-core Snapdragon or octa-core Exynos. Samsung likes to play Hide The Salami with the CPU. If one of them is U.S.-only, then that’s the one I used at Best Buy.
Like the LG G3 phone, the Note 3 has 3GBs of RAM. The screen is only 1920 x 1080 (hello, iPhone 6 Plus!) but 5.7 inches. And those extra 0.2 inches really make a difference. It looks bigger than the LG G3.
Spec-wise, the LG G3 phone is a monster: A quad-core Snapdragon 801 running at 2.5GHz, 3GBs of RAM, and a 5.5-inch quad-HD screen at 1440 x 2560 pixels.
Reality does not match theory.
I watched the announcement live via YouTube.
Samsung doesn’t get it. The products are the star. We don’t want to see stiff people who aren’t professional presenters drone on and on and try to be funny. We want the damn products announced and demonstrated in-depth.
The only one that interested me was the new Note 4. Samsung made some very nice improvements to its MultiView feature, leaping ahead of Rockchip’s MultiWindow Android 2.0.
Anyway, at post time all of the videos on YouTube are very much alike. After the break, one from Android Authority.
I’m not sure if a twisty dial is the answer, but this is still seriously great.
See the video after the break.
A fellow in France has done one of the best tablet videos I’ve seen. It’s fifty-three minutes long and includes a lot of testing.
He uses a different launcher, for one thing, with an impressive live wallpaper background that’s gorgeous.
The Blu Studio 5.0 C HD is one of the phones I’ve been wondering about as a possible buy.
It’s — usually — just US$149 at Amazon.
720p screen, 1GB RAM, a stingy 4GBs of storage (but it has a microSD card slot), a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek 6582 CPU, and — as seen after the break — a video camera and microphone that’s surprisingly good for the price. AnTuTu in the 17,000-range.
I post this because it should shame every damn tablet maker in China who puts something worse in a tablet that’s priced higher.
