CUBE Talk9x: First User Report

Over at the IMP3Net forum, a user has posted his report on the CUBE Talk9x tablet [Google Translate]

To review: The CUBE Talk9X has a Retina-class 9.7 inch IGZO screen, an octa-core MediaTek 8392 CPU with peak frequency of 2GHz (allegedly), 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of internal storage, a 2MP front and 8MP back camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, a 10,000mAh battery, and 3G (WCDMA + TD-SCDMA dual 3G, compatible with GSM — at least in China and probably Europe too). It runs Android 4.4 — without any modifications, from the looks of it.

Grab a salt shaker. You’ll need lots of salt after the break.

At the forum, the user is raked over the coals for posting a fraudulent AnTuTu score and for mis-stating the battery life:

MediaTek MT8392 is the first tablet model 6592 (all of the same structure can not run so much worse), 6592 was run 20008 Please Tutu x ran down in the end to see how many points your battery life next chart is obviously not Figure lie with consumers using tablet standby tow ~ ~ ~ You Enough

In all, I have to agree with another forum poster:

Feeling landlord has been in evasive answer, hurt does not itch. By afraid to face the tough questions raised by Friends of the altar, you can almost guess what it is you want to hide.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

That he wouldn’t download and run AnTuTu X after the objections says it all, I think. It would have taken minimal effort to do — and to also use the new AnTuTu feature that can generally calculate battery longevity.

He also didn’t run Geekbench or any other benchmark. Nor did he report testing any games.

I even have to wonder if the sample photos are for real.

Like I said, take this report with a huge dose of salt.

  1. I have this table and the Antutu X score is 40370. Very nice tablet so far one of the best I have seen so far from a Chinese manufacturer. The battery life seems to be shorter. So unless Cube has found a way around the antutu x, the scores are NOT fraud. I am now waiting for my Pipo P1 to arrive. The max CPU frequency is set to 1.667 GHz. Overall very nice and impressive device for the price paid.

      This is a ~1.66GHz MT8392. It’s similar to the MT6592. No frikkin way can it score 40K AnTuTu. CUBE has to be cheating somehow. I will stand on this position until their cheating is revealed or I am proven wrong.
