About Us

Thank you for dropping by the Top China Tablets About Us page.

Top China Tablets is founded by Roy Yap, a tech enthusiast with many years of experience in writing tech related articles both online and on print. Roy first started out by creating and running a few tech related websites in the 90′s including a popular 3D graphics site and a video gaming site.

Roy started the Top China Tablets site as he discovered that there is no current site that provides up-to-date and accurate information about Android tablets produced by China manufacturers. Most of the information currently available are from either the manufacturers or from Chinese retailers. The information provided is often confusing and sometimes outright incorrect. It was also very difficult to do direct comparisons as different terms were used to refer to the same thing.

The aim and focus of Top China Tablets is to provide all this information in an easy to understand and compare format with consistent terms used. Hopefully, the information and reviews that you find here will be of help to you, the buyer, to make an informed decision when buying a China tablet.

    • If I can get my hands on a unit, I’ll post a review. No promises though 🙂

    • Ask and you shall receive 🙂

      I have just posted the review of the Pipo M8 Pro. It is a great unit and it gets double thumbs up from me. Thanks for the review suggestion.

  2. Dear Roy, In the past weeks I’ve done a detailed analysis of multiple tablets. My compliments for your clear reviews and comparisons of Chinese tablets on this site. They appeared to be accurate and unbiased. I’ve based my decision to purchase a PipoM6pro tablet for a large part on your information. I received the tablet yesterday and was pleased to find that it even performed better than you described, thereby confirming your recommendations. I’m sure that over the next few years, more and more people will order their computing equipment directly from China. Your reviews, and those of your team, play a key role in smoothing this path. Thanks and keep up this good work!

  3. Hi
    First off great site Lots of information and in terms that are understandable. I’m looking for a tablet on a pretty tight budget that is going to last me a while and was wondering if you had ever heard of the Afunta 8-a31w or the Matricom G-Tab Quantum 7…they both look good on paper but I can’t seem to find a lot of detailed information on either of them and I have a sinking feeling they fall into the “You bought a box of rocks” category. any help or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

    • I have not tested either of these brands (there are just too many to keep track of all of them) and I’m not saying that they are a “box of rocks” but unless you are buying from a retailer that has great and simple return policy, I would rather stick with one of the better known brands.

      • I found both of them on Amazon so it’s not all that bad…but like you said there are just way to many brands, off brands and one-off’s to keep track of. If I end up getting one of them I will let you know how it works out.

      • Amazon should be safe enough. Do let me know how it turns out if you decide to take the plunge.

  4. Hi Roy,

    I’d like to thank you for putting together such a clear, informative and well written site that stands apart from all other tablet review sites in terms of its unbiased straight forward factual reviews and the number of devices that have been reviewed. I only came across your site last weekend and it has already helped to confirm what is likely to be my next tablet purchases from PIPO. I particularly liked your reviews of the PIPO U8, M6 Pro, M8 Pro and M9 Pro and was wondering whether you might review a M8HD.

    I am particularly curious as to whether PIPO has fixed the firmware for powering 1920 x 1200 Retina displays and whether they have consequently produced a firmware update to the M9 Pro.

    I came to your site because I needed a review for the PIPO U8, as a replacement for a Chuwi V88 Titianium Green Ice (TIG) that I ‘hard’ bricked last week with Chuwi’s confusing firmware updates based on V88 ‘fusilage’ serial numbers. I was disappointed to have to open its case in order to do a ‘NAND short’ to get it to flash mode.
    All of my other tablets(all PIPOs) have a reset function and haven’t required such a drastic ‘Nand short’ action and so I don’t want to go through that again hence the replacement.

    • As far as I know, the performance issues on the Pipo units with the retina display has not been resolved. It may be more of a hardware issue rather than a software one so it may never be resolved.

      • Your PIPO M6 Pro review indicated a firmware update that improved driving the 2048 x 1536 Retina Display to a ‘slight lag’ and so I was wondering whether a similar firmware update would be even better with the 1920 x 1200 display on a M9 Pro or M8HD

      • I have not tested the latest M9 Pro firmware although the lag was not so bad to begin with unlike the original M6 firmware.

  5. Could you please do a review on the new Onda V975m. Need to know how the battery life og WIFI scores compared to others. I disagree with you on the WIFI for the Onda V972, it is a bit weak and the build quality isn’t that good either. Not superb, it does in fact creak and flex a bit. But please do a review on the Onda V975m 2 gb version, I think it may be a decent upgrade.
