This is a treat. A twenty-three-minute video by someone who flashed Windows 8.1 to his Teclast X98 Air and is very comfortable using Windows on a tablet.
He opens by talking about what a trip it was trying to install Windows. Figuring out how to change the language to English took him days — and he needed his Surface nearby as a guide to translating Chinese to English.
He doesn’t have good news for those of you pining for Windows on it. He’s not completely satisfied with the performance. He says that sometimes he can have just one program open and there will be stuttering!
Another disappointment is WiFi performance. Here’s Speedtest on his Surface:
And on the Teclast X98 Air with Windows:
He says that although 5G WiFi is advertised, it’s not actually in the tablet. I wonder if this is true or if his unit is somehow defective? I also wonder if the recent WiFi tip would help him?
He plays a few games, one of which is Halo:
It goes well. But then when he tries Asphalt 8 at full retina resolution …
… the frame rate is insufficient and he also has a great deal of trouble controlling the car.
On the Desktop side, he runs a Steam game …
… and that goes well.
But there’s a bit of a trick with that …
… the resolution was set to just 1280 x 1024!
He then lowers the screen resolution …
… and tries Asphalt 8 again …
… and the frame rate is improved and so is control.
He has no interest in the camera but takes a sample still shot and a short video for the sake of viewers …
… but using the camera really isn’t his thing.
Now the video:
