CUBE Talk9X: iambillbil Evaluation


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.

Tablet wonk iambillbill has the AnTuTu fraud-scoring CUBE Talk9X [Google Translate]. He admits up front that he’s a fan of CUBE’s products so the abbreviated report reflects that. He concentrates primarily on frame rates. He doesn’t do the AnTuTu score (which would be embarrassing and shred his reputation). He also doesn’t test the camera. Nor does he do any sort of battery rundown test — which is a shame, given its 10,000mAh battery.

What this basically is, is his love letter to the tablet. In some of the scores shown, other tablets sometimes perform better. But he likes this one.

At any rate, again, it’s not a bad tablet. It’s just that I won’t tolerate CUBE marketing it with a fraudulent AnTuTu score.

People with specific video playback needs should see his post as not all formats can be handled.

    I just read on XDA that a micro SIM (active?) is required for GPS assist in order for GPS to work. Is this true?
