Compelling Video Of Onda V989

A fellow in France has done one of the best tablet videos I’ve seen. It’s fifty-three minutes long and includes a lot of testing.


He uses a different launcher, for one thing, with an impressive live wallpaper background that’s gorgeous.

He says “OK, Google” and speaks a query to the tablet …


… and BAM! It understands and gives an answer:


The microphone works properly!

He installs Firefox …


… and plays Flash animations:


He shows comic books …


… which look spectacular …


… but the disappointment was here for me with paging that seemed sluggish:


He also showed three sample photos, which didn’t look bad at all:


There’s a ton of stuff here. And despite it all being in French, it’s worth seeing. Start at eighteen minutes in, however. He spends those eighteen minutes with a very long unboxing that really isn’t worth the time.

The only thing he skipped was the firmware version of the tablet. Is it the latest one? Because there’s a surprise in there about graphic rendering of a game that makes me wonder.

I would have liked to have seen some live video taken with the tablet too.

I’d really like to see the Google Books PDF test on this tablet now.

Here’s the video:

    Since yesterday I have a xiaomi mipad. As you I was annoyed by the “sluggish paging” in ComicRack when I use it in portrait mode. But in landscape, there is no problem with the paging and now I have 2 pages shown at the same time (they fit perfectly). Plus thanks to the resolution, there’s no need to zoom in. So my opinion is with a 9.7 inch tablet in landscape it will be even better.

    This has come a long way from someone calling it the worst tab ever:
    Thank God for firmware updates?

    It’s v1.0.3_v3.
