Five Technology held a Sina Weibo conference unveiling its way over-hyped iFive Mini 3 [Google English].
Really, that’s the only one I’m convinced is a real photo.
Still, here are some more:
Two hands from two different people up there. It could be Photoshopped. Especially given those shadows.
The post is filled with hype about its measurements. Really, are a few millimeters in a certain dimension that much of a selling point? I don’t think so.
And then they try to get away with this as its AnTuTu score:
18,593? Right. Pull the other leg, Five Technology. Unless you’ve secured a supply of Rockchip 3188 CPUs that will all run flat-out at 1.8GHz, that score is bullshit. The proper range is in the 17,000s.
Again: Because they were so focused on being the thinnest out there, they gutted this tablet. It’s too slim to accommodate a 2GB RAM chip. With just 1GB of RAM, it’s worthless. It can’t do MultiWindow Android and it’s already been established with other tablets that 1GB is just not enough. I don’t believe anything Five Technology says about how they’ve magically optimized their flavor of Android to make do with 1GB of RAM. Neither should you.
