  • Looks pretty enticing to this noobie but what says the ozbargain geeks?

  • Is this a third party case? Or original Teclast? Is it a keyboard folio case? If so, it's a good price.

  • How does the A95x compare wit the xiao mi tv box? Does this one do the cast thing as well?

  • I bought three Teclast X89 tablets just under a year ago. They are JUNK. Different tablet model, but the internals are similar. WiFi drops out regularly. WiFi suddenly stops recognising every other WiFi router except yours regularly while you're using it to surf Reddit or OzBargain. You have to turn off WiFi then turn it back on before it re-registers. They get really hot in a particular place at the back, uncomfortable to hold. The plastic near the headphone socket has a sharp piece poking out so it sometimes scratches my hand. Battery life is TERRIBLE. Windows 10 is unusable unless you add a memory card, because the damn thing tries to update itself every single time you turn it on, and fills up the internal memory because the internal memory is smaller than the update file. There's no LED to show that it's charging, so sometimes you leave it plugged in overnight only to find out your charger wasn't plugged in all the way, or the powerpoint wasn't turned on, so it didn't charge. It also drains battery faster than it charges, so if your battery is running low you can't simply continue to use it while plugged in.

    I wonder if @Clear can do anything about this - my warranty officially ran out end of April, but two weeks ago one of the tablets completely died. Won't charge at all. The battery was bad at the beginning of the year only lasting an hour or so, but Gearbest warranty stated I had to pay full cost of postage and full return postage cost to have it looked at under warranty so I didn't bother. But now it's completely dead. It's barely been used because nearly every time we try to use it the WiFi dies, or the battery runs out, or Windows 10 goes into a restart loop.

      I won't be able to do anything if it came from Gearbest.

      • Thanks for quick reply - Very sorry I wrote wrong thing by accident! I ordered three Teclast X89 tablets from Geekbuying on 29/04/2016, orders 3653906, 3653908, and 3653910. Two don't work very well but are usable, but one is completely dead. It was failing a few months ago but I've been extremely ill in and out of hospital, so wasn't able to contact Geekbuying earlier. Not sure if there's anything you can do.

        •  

          No problem. I'll see what can be done.

        • @Clear: Thanks so much! The tablet took many weeks to arrive so I've actually had them less than a year. I just tried again, one of them is completely dead unfortunately. The other two are still usable with Android but not with Windows 10 (that's Microsoft's fault, not Teclast's.)

  • 64GB eMMC Storage (Supports MicroSD card up to 128GB)

    Word of warning if you're after the dual boot tablet. The 64GB will be split 40GB Windows and 16GB Android. 40GB is not enough for Windows. Windows will take up about 15GB on its own. You have not much space for anything.

    The SD card support in Android is FAT32 only. This is not ideal. Windows will support EXFAT and NTFS but if you card if formatted that way it's not useable in Android. If you want it useable in Android, you can't have files bigger than 4GB.

    CPU is also slow for Windows (perfectly fine for Android). This isn't helped by the fact that Intel pulled out of Atom development years ago, so there's been no improvement on SoC on these tablets and never will be.

    The pictures look as though it has an antenna for cellular support, but the specs don't mention it. Is it cellular? If so, which bands?

  • I had a x98 Air II dual boot (I broke the screen/digitizer by being incredibly stupid) and it was great, so not all Teclast tablets are bad. Yes Windows took up a lot of the memory, but it was enough to have a few big files and movies, and the bigger the SD card you can get the better. I've never had the plus, though, so it seems your mileage may vary with these things. Certain models seem a lot worse lately than past models.

    It did however have some bugs that my Samsung does not, and the Samsung is obv more polished. I had issues Skyping because the camera would register the camera as sideways, so I'd be sideways in my window (although they'd see me right way up). If I flipped it, it'd just flip the camera sideways again. I saw them fine, and they saw me fine, but it was just annoying to see my picture in picture constantly sideways. It didn't always do this bug but often, and mostly in Android, it worked better when I used Windows to Skype.

    Also it would crash/freeze in Android when running certain games at first. I had to download a fix by Teclast called Fastmode which helped that a lot, but doing that at all kind of sucked.

    Also it had a lot of bloatware on Android that you couldn't remove, which was annoying. I found the CPU really good for Windows, but mine was a Win 8 model, (which I upgraded to Win10). I was lucky though, no problems with Wifi, (although it worked better in Windows) ran games pretty fast, paired pretty seamlessly, was decently fast (could play Goat Simulater with a PS4 controller attached) although chugged a little bit.

    I mostly used it to play Android games, I had a lot of Pixel games, FF, Telltale, Fallout Shelter, etc, and it was worth it for that.

    Obviously you're never going to get something running amazingly with these Chinese tablets. Still, I got a lot of good use out of it, it had a mini HDMI so I could hook it up to my TV etc, was great for travel, etc. Definitely do research at TechTablets first though, that's what I did before I bought.

    EDIT: Oh and as for plus sides— the screen and LCD were amazing, much better than anything even close to its price range. It was almost TOO amazing, as even the lowest brightness was pretty bright and drained the battery.

    • I have 2 dual boots. A Chuwi 32GB and a Teclast Air 3G 64GB.

      The Chuwi has a Windows partition of 16GB, and Windows takes up 14-15GB. You need a minimum of 8GB free memory just to update W10 to Anniversary update, which is impossible. The 1GB I have remaining is not enough to install anything. SD cards are good for movies and photos but not installed apps and games which you want faster access for.

      The 64GB Air 3G had just enough GB to be barely useable. But the high resolution was not ideal for the things I wanted to do with it. It struggled at those resolutions and the scaling was not great.

      These run Android smoothly, but Windows is another matter. Also, Android doesn't support EXFAT or NTFS with these tablets because China doesn't pay royalties.

      • I agree, the partition size is a significant issue with a lot of these, and people need to absolutely keep that in mind, because in those instances Win10 dual is totally useless. But my point is not all Chinese tablets are terrible and never work, that's all. It's never going to be a polished brand name Tab, but my Air was great and worth the money at the time. As I said though, mileage varies with the Teclasts because they have similar names but are significantly different in specs and quality. With a 64gb partition I had no issues with Win10 whatsoever. Yeah space was cramped and I imagine it'd just get worse in future, but I still managed about 15 moves and games on it, and I'd still be using it had I not cracked it by accident. It was perfect for travel and light gaming. I actually picked the Air II because it had lower resolution, which worked fine for gaming for me, playing things like Everquest emulation, Sims City etc. But what kind of games would you want to play on a Win tablet anyway? The only reason I got a dual boot was for word processing, watching movies while travelling, skyping, HDMI output, and syncing with my PC. For this, Windows side worked amazing and ran very smooth, no wifi issues at all. Instead, my Android side was buggier. But my results aren't necessarily typical, as I said, TechTablets is where its at if anyone is considering it.

        • But what kind of games would you want to play on a Win tablet anyway?

          Visual novels. The high resolution on my Teclast 3G is not ideal, since these tend to be 800x600 or 720p. It looks tiny, or you have to scale it. On the Chuwi I have which is 1920x1200 it looks fine.. but I don't have enough space to install any.

          If I can find a 1280x800 tablet with 64GB, I'll be happy, but I don't think they make any these days.

          The Chinese tablets use Atom either Z3576f or Z8300. Both are about the same in processing power. They are the only SoC you're going to get for Windows. If you want proper performance you have to spring for a Core i5 or Core M but these carry a significant premium over an Atom. You can't get an ARM cpu for Windows 10.
