Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Cube T10 4G Review.

Today’s video worth sharing is a review on the 10.1 inch, Cube T10 4G model. This is a 10.1 inch tablet with 4 G connectivity along with WiFi a/b/g/n with a decent display at a relatively reasonable price.

If making calls via your tablet is important then this one might be the one for you. Although you need to check the available bands to see if you can use it in your region of the world. It also has the newer Android 6.0 on board and seems to be quite adequate for everyday use.

So without further intro, below is the video from Chris over at Techtablets.com

This tablet is available from Gearbest currently at $185.

That is all for now,

Once again we have a cool video worth sharing. If you are at all interested in the Galaxy Book Tablet/PC then you might just be interested in the S-Pen.

Andrew from AMDTech has once again scored with a review specifically on the S-Pen.  The video is rather short, . but it covers all the questions you may have about this Stylus.

Nothing much else to say here…so below you will find the video!

That is all for now,

My First Review of The BLU Studio Energy 2 Phone! The battery on this thing is a monster!

29% battery left after 3 days!
29% battery left after 3 days!

As I mentioned a few days back I ordered a few items from Amazon and have been trying them out for the past several days.

The first one I shall talk about is the BLU Studio Energy 2 phone. The screen is incredibly bright and sharp and the Super AmoLed display is a noticeable improvement over my older BLU Studio X. The one piece aluminum chassis is solid and not all that heavy.

The expanded storage space with 16gb on the phone and an additional 32gb microSD card that I took from my old ME572C tablet is a bonus.

The WiFi works great with my new TP-Link AC1200 router and I can’t go anywhere around my house or yard, out to about 100ft, without getting 135mbps. The extra ram is a great improvement also, 1.5gb ram really speeds the phone up over the Studio X’s 1.0gb ram.

The camera software is far better than what was on the Studio X and the front camera has been bumped to 5mp. Pictures are good, but not great and it does a very good job of shooting short videos.

All of those improvements are great, but the star of the show here is a 5000 mAh battery. I am at roughly 3 days of solid use and the battery is at 29%. I rather expect it to be near dead sometime tomorrow afternoon. That would be nearly 4 days folks!

Yes, the phone has one issue and that is it absolutely refuses to run the KSWeb Server app for android that my old BLU Studio X ran perfectly. I am guessing it is either the A5 Cortex processor versus the A7 Cortex in the Studio X or a change is the Android on the product, although both are Android 5. This would be a big deal if I did not have a shiny new Asus Z580CA tablet with 4gb ram to use as the occasional backup for the Dragon Touch here.

Last but not least I decided to try the phone out with my Logitech K480 Bluetooth Keyboard and a wireless Logitech mouse plugged in via a micro-full USB adapter. Yes folks…if you want to run your very own 5 inch notebook, this phone can do it for you! The crappy video below will show the short test I did…

All in all I would give this a 5 star rating for anyone looking for a well-built phone, with a decent size screen, decent cameras, plenty of storage and a battery that you can ignore for days at a time and never have to worry about!

My Review of The Chuwi Hi12 Tablet, Dual Boot (With the Z8350 CPU): Video

Since I have had my hands on this tablet for a good deal of time, I thought I should write a review and include one of my crappy videos shot on the BLU Studio Energy 2 phone, which incidentally is on day 3 of a charge and still has 28% battery.

So the new tablet has performed as expected and works extremely well in Windows 10, although the Android portion is just so-so. It has a lot of positives and a few negatives and I shall now list those below.

Positives:

  • Stunning display, incredibly bright! Sharp and can be run comfortably at 25% unless in bright lighting.
  • Battery life is stellar. I never bring a charger with me to work and get through an entire day of web editing, image editing, using Office and Paintshop Pro and I go home at no less than 48% battery!
  • Speed is good, apps open quickly and running multiple apps is not an issue.
  • Works perfectly with my K480 Keyboard and is essentially a 12 inch notebook when used this way.

Now on to the negatives:

  • When the screen falls asleep it can be a pain to wake it up. It can take 2-3 seconds to respond to a mouse click or to pressing the Windows button. I have learned to click once on the mouse or Windows button and be patient so this is not a major issue.
  • I have been unable to increase the RAM speed to 1600 MHz as this may require a BIOS update which I have yet to find.
  • The Touch screen does not allow me to choose an operating system on boot-up, although I can switch to Android or back once booted in.
  • The Chuwi Forum is a horrible place to find info on this device. The downloads/tutorials are almost indecipherable and just joining the forum took me over a month to get a link to verify my email address.

However, considering the $235 price tag, I would still recommend this tablet to anyone looking for long battery life and a great display. Sorry, you won’t see any game testing results here because I sort of outgrew those when I became an adult.

Below you will find the usual crappy video…enjoy!

Last but not least this post was written on the Chuwi Hi12 running a VM perfectly in Linux, just thought I would point that out.

That is all for now,
