First Evaluation Of Ramos K1 Tablet





Absolutely freakin gorgeous.

ZOL has the first look, of a final engineering pre-production sample [Google English].

This can’t really be called a review because it’s not the final product. And comprehensive testing is not evident in the article.

Quad-core Allwinner A31s CPU at 1Ghz, PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GBs of storage, microSD card slot, mini-HDMI-out port, dual independent AAC front-facing speakers, 2MP front and 5MP back cameras, 3.5mm headphone jack, Android 4.2.2, 5,500 mAh battery.

It’s unclear whether or not this can charge via USB.

The engineering version was lacking optimized Android and whatever UI customizations Ramos might add, so their battery rundown test is meaningless, with just a little over three hours with screen brightness on full. Reviews of the finished product later will tell a truer story.

The final page has several benchmarks [Google English] but the page wasn’t properly set up, with large-size images a click away.

Here’s the AnTuTu score they’re all trying to get away with (image small due to problem cited above):


No. This is still a 1GHz A31s CPU. And prior to this and the Onda V819 Mini, it scored in the 11,000-12,000 range.

Allwinner, Ramos, and Onda are hurting themselves, trying to bamboozle the public with a fraudulent AnTuTu score.

There’s been a raging and ongoing brutal battle in a Chinese forum over AnTuTu score fraud. Someone keeps pointing out that the AnTuTu score doesn’t matter — the user experience does. While that’s true, that argument doesn’t seem to impact the plans of tablet makers who still churn out tablets with just 1GB of RAM. If user experience really mattered, the Ramos K1 and Onda V819 Mini would both have 2GBs of RAM. And, really, people look to the AnTuTu score as an indication of what the user experience will be. So committing fraud with that score is being disrespectful towards potential customers.

All that being said, dahyum, the K1 is still a gorgeous tablet.

It will be interesting to see if actual buyers look below its pretty face.
