Pipo M9 Android Tablet Review

The Pipo M9 Android tablet is the predecessor to the new Pipo M9pro. The main differences are the lower resolution 10.1 inch display (1280 x 800) instead of the retina (1920 x 1200) display, and 16GB ROM instead of 32GB on the M9pro. The retina display is a very attractive upgrade but it comes with a price and it is not just in dollars. The quad-core RK3188 is a very powerful chip but a lot of extra power is required to push the extra pixels on the retina screen. In many apps, especially graphically intensive ones like 3D games, the RK3188 struggles and this results is jerkiness which renders some apps unusable. This is less of an issue on the Pipo M9. All the 3D games run well on the tablet although I have to admit that the retina screen on the M9pro does make the graphics look more impressive. The extra storage ROM on the M9pro is a minor update in my opinion as users can easily add more storage by using the microSD memory expansion slot. Memory cards are also cheap with 32GB microSD cards going for under $25. The price difference between the M9 and M9pro is significant. Comparing the WiFi only model on AliExpress, there is about a $30-$40 price difference. If you plan to use the tablet for a lot portable gaming, it might be wiser to stick with the Pipo M9 for compatibility purposes and save some money at the same time. However, if you do not do much gaming and do not mind paying a little more for a better screen, the M9pro is a good buy as well. The rest of the specifications and performance of the M9 is quite similar to the M9pro.
