This is an interesting tablet that looked and performed better than I expected. RemixOS feels very mature and natural on this device, well paired with the Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor built in.
Remix OS is a fork of Android that applies a desktop interface to Android apps. This means resizable layered windows, a task bar, and even a start button. It is exceptionally well executed and something I’ve covered in more detail in the link above.
But it’s best suited for a keyboard/trackpad combo and not as a touch-based device. The controls are small for mouse usage and may not be as user friendly as a regular Android app might be on a keyboard-less tablet.
The IPS display is very sharp, crisp, and clear running at a full 1080p. Battery life feels decent and should last most users all day. Web browsing, gaming, and movie watching all performed well although this is not a good device for watching Blu Ray MKVs. I saw some frame drops in my testing.
All in this is an exceptional value and well worth considering if you’re in the market for a cheap tablet to run your Android apps.
