Pipo P1: Unrealistic Eight Hours Of Video

Pipo makes a claim for eight hours of video playback with its P1 tablet using unrealistic settings [Google Translate]:

WiFi is turned on, play online video, “Detective Conan” (SD), Shuffle
Volume is set to 30%, with headphones
Adjust the screen brightness to 20%


Errrrrmmmm… standard def online video, headphones, and one-fifth brightness? Seriously, Pipo?

    Yeap. 20-25% brightness looping a (most probably) 480p video and 8 hours battery life? That’s with a 10000mah battery?

    Geez. My V975i with a 7600-7800mah battery can loop a 720p video at 50% brightness for 8 hours!

      To follow up on my previous post, it’s a SOC issue. Wonder if it can be fixed with future updates. I know the A31 never had its battery drain issue fixed.

      Yes. This is very, very troubling. I hope it’s due to very sloppy software from Rockchip (the platform supplier) and that it’ll soon be fixed. Otherwise, 3288 is a dud.

        Very disappointing indeed. The Rk3188 was just shy of a dud. Now the 3288? Seems like the only time rockchip was good was when it released its 3066.

    hi mike cane, i’m from indonesia, nice to found your blogspot, really good got a lot of info here
    i want to ask about this pipo p1, are this pipo p1 retina screen is good? is the colour warmer (rather yellowish) or rather like cold (blue)?

    • mikecane

      I don’t know. I haven’t seen that mentioned. If you click through to the reviews, all of them praise the screen but don’t mention warm/cold aspect.
