Teclast P90HD: First Review

TeclastP90HDR001

It’s over at ZOL [Google Translate].

This isn’t a tablet I’m interested in but I thought since it’s another Rockchip 3288-based tablet the contrast to the Pipo P1 would be worthwhile.

Let’s jump to some of the benchmarks.

Geekbench 3:

Geekbench 3 results comparison:

GFXBench 3:

TeclastP90HDR004

3DMark:

Now that’s weird, because it’s higher than the score Teclast touts:

They also use a thermal imager to measure temperature. I won’t reprint any of those because they’d be out of context. I’ll just say while it gets hot, it doesn’t get as hot as the Pipo P1. I don’t know if that’s due to the composition of the tablet shell or better CPU temperature-regulating software by Teclast.

A full battery rundown test is not done. Which is stupid. Look, reviews aren’t so important that an additional full day to run down the battery can’t be done. That information is important and extrapolations just don’t cut it.

Being somewhat unrealistic, the reviewer says the P90HD isn’t worth the price because it lacks 3G, GPS, NFC(!) and dismisses it as a “pure entertainment tablet.” Outside of China, his objections are silly. This is an 8.9-inch tablet with a screen at 2560 x 1600 for 1199 yuan — or about US$193. Contrast that to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 — which is also 2560 x 1600 for US$329 (sale price).

    In other news. Once again Rockchip has under-delivered in the GPU section. Even Intel Atom chips which are notorious for having less than ideal GPU is better than this.

      I noticed that this time after your prior Comment. Given the way they’ve hyped that latest Mali, I expected it to blow away everything else. Now we wait to see what the A80 and its GPU does…

      • Marcus

        Same. I had great expectations for the RK3288 GPU.

        If the A80 has Antutu GPU score of at least 10k on retina resolutions, that’s a win in my books. Next up would be on its power management. It’s a pity that its so hard to obtain a MiPad overseas and even then, thanks to scalpers, it costs a lot more than it should. If it was for the lack of availability of the MiPad, I wouldn’t even consider the A80

        Well the other thing about the MiPad is no Google Services, no Google Play. And no rooting — and probably not that for quite some time as it will be hard for those who create such things to get their hands on it.

      • Marcus

        One thing great about the MiPad is the Miui community support, there will be root, there will be play services. Should be available in a fairly short time. Not to mention there is a guarantee that there will be a Android L update when it arrives.

      • mikecane

        I forgot all about the MIUI community. It will be interesting to see how Nvidia follows up the K1 CPU.

        Been streaming Netflix videos for 5 hours and still have 20% battery left, so not too bad on battery life.

      • bob

        Forgot to mention the video streaming was at 100% brightness.

    Just received mine today. Very pleased. 40,000 plus antutu x. Very snappy. Screen is very bright and crystal clear. WiFi reception is very good. Good build quality. Very pleased for the cost $254 us delivered by dhl.
