I posted one of his prior videos, in which he compared it to the Onda V975w.
It turns out he got rid of the Onda. It had poor battery life compared to the Teclast.
In the first video, he demonstrates multitasking viaa HDMI-out to a 1440p screen and winds up surprising himself when playing a 4K video.
In the second video, he gives his thought after using it for three weeks.
He keeps mentioning that it’s a two-hundred dollar tablet. I wish he wouldn’t do that. It makes it very hard to resist!
Anyway, his tablet started out with Android and he flashed it to Windows. It turns out over at XDA Developers there’s an entire set of English-language instructions for doing that. He thinks it runs better with Windows over Android. (Don’t forget that Teclast is now offering it with Windows pre-installed.)
Just when I begin to get excited over a tablet like this, reality strikes back:
After receiving the tablet I came to the conclusion that the tablet will freeze (randomly) if I play a game or watch a youtube video for instance. The crashlog shows gpu errors and I am 99,9% sure that the tablet has a broken gpu or broken RAM memory. Either way the tablet I received is DOA and I am returning it to TinyDeal. Probably a fault from Teclast. Their tests in production have probably passed my tablet, but this is a very sneaky error. (and maybe even a fault from Intel or the RAM memory manufacturer)
I think he got a bad unit that somehow passed QC. I haven’t read of anyone complaining about YouTube(!) freezing the tablet.
But that’s what buying a Chinese tablet is: Placing a bet that you won’t wind up with a lemon!
Next-day update: In Comments, Emrah Orhan Mutku points to a post at XDA Developers where the same guy gets a replacement tablet for the defective one and raves about it. That story has a happy ending, but buying a tablet from China is still placing a bet.
