Review: Chuwi V88 Android Tablet

I have done a few reviews on the Apple iPad clones here on Top China Tablets but the Chuwi V88 will be the first review on an China Android Tablet PC that is basically a clone of the Apple iPad Mini. Like the iPad Mini, the Chuwi V88 has a 7.9″ display with a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution. This also means that like the iPad clones, the display on the tablet has a 4:3 aspect ratio instead of the more common 16:10 or 16:9 ratio for Android tablets. The Chuwi brand is a relatively new brand among the Chinese tablet manufacturers. However, Chuwi’s other tablet products like their iPad clone, the Chuwi V99, received generally good reviews. I personally gave the Chuwi V99 a respectable 4 stars rating on my review. Therefore, I have high hopes for the Chuwi V88.

Vido N90 FHDRK Android Tablet Review

Vido N90 FHDRK Android Tablet Review

First of all, the Vido N90 FHDRK is frequently sold under two other brand names, Window and Yuandao, but the model number remains the same. They all refer to the same company. Phonetically, all 3 brand names sound alike. If I understand it correctly, Vido is the name of the company that produces OEM Android tablets. Then Vido decided to sell tablets under their own brand thus Window and Yuandao were born. Vido mainly sells their brand of tablets within China but there are retailers who are shipping them internationally. They do not even include an English manual or documentation with their products. Make sure that the support from the retailer is good before committing to buying a Vido tablet. So with the disadvantages associated with a Vido tablet, why should anyone consider buying one? It is because Vido tablets are among the cheapest China Android tablet PCs that you can buy. The Vido N90 FHDRK is an iPad clone with very similar specs as the Pipo M6 which we gave a maximum 5 stars rating. It is powered by a quad-core Rockchip RK3188 processor and a gorgeous 9.7 inch 2048 x 1536 pixel retina display.  A Vido N90 FHDRK can be bought for about $50 less than a Pipo M6. Please note there are 2 versions of the N90 FHD, with and without the RK suffix. The RK suffix refers to the RK3188 processor that powers the tablet. The model without the RK comes with the Allwinner A31 quad-core processor.

Pipo M9 Android Tablet Review

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. For a more detailed review of the Pipo M9 tablet, you can check out my full review on Androydz.com or you can also read up my full review on the M9pro before making a decision. How does the Pipo M9 compare with other tablets? Refer to our Top China Tablets Full Guide comparison matrix with over 40 tablets.

Cube U30GT2 Android Tablet Review

Cube U30GT2 Android Tablet Review

Cube is a relatively new brand in the China tablet market. Like many of the other China brands, they started out as OEM manufacturers before branching out into their own brand. Cube had a really successful product with the original Cube U30GT and they have followed up with its high resolution successor, the Cube U30GT2 Android tablet. However, the market is a whole lot more crowded than when the original U30GT first came out. There are a lot more players in the market going after the lucrative Android tablet pie. The U30GT was a relatively high-end model with good specs and at an attractive price. Everybody seems to be coming out with high-end quad-core Android tablets with high resolution displays nowadays so the Cube U30GT2 has much more competition this time.

Pipo M7pro Android Tablet Review

Pipo M7pro Android Tablet Review

This is a hands-on review of the Pipo M7 pro, a slightly smaller version of the Pipo M9 pro. The Pipo M7 pro has a smaller 8.9 inch screen compared to the 10.1 inch screen on the M9 pro. In addition, the M7pro uses a PLS (Plane to Line Switching) panel display while the M9pro has an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel. Both panel technologies are similar with high brightness and wide viewing angle. However, PLS technology is more energy efficient compared to IPS. Other than this difference, all the other specifications for both devices are more or less the same. Therefore, on this review, I will just make note of the differences between the 2 devices plus comparisons with the Nexus 7 which has a similar price range. You can refer to my Pipo M9pro review for the first impressions and performance sections as they mostly apply to the M7pro as well.

Buy from AliExpress Pipo M7pro and Google Nexus 7 comparison The Pipo M7pro currently retails for $279 for the WiFi only version (you can get it for under $220 on AliExpress) and $315 for the version with 3G (under $240 on AliExpress). Unfortunately for the M7pro, its specifications and price put it right in competition with the newly launched Google Nexus 7. The Nexus 7 has a smaller 7″ IPS display but with a similar 1920 x 1200 pixel. The Nexus 7 has a retail price of $269 for the 32 GB WiFi only version. On top of that, the Nexus 7 has a few major advantages over the M7pro. The Nexus 7 has dual-band (2.4/5.0 GHz) WiFi that provides a more stable connection than a standard 2.4 GHz WiFi. The Nexus 7 is also NFC enabled and...
