Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Unboxing and Desing

To my surprise, it is the first tablet I buy and I get so protected, I get to the best amazon style, with a giant “bubble bag”, leaving the tablet completely protected. I mention it because my name is the attention.

Aside from that, the tablet comes in its box normally with loose accessories underneath, no presentation in the style xiaomi around here everything to save you some eurillos!

As the tablet came unprepared, better covered in health, and the first thing was to turn it on Android mode, and give the factory reset, so that it is 0 or nothing more than what the manufacturer puts there!

To move in the start menu, it is with the volume buttons and with the power button is selected.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Display

The critical point when we talk about tablets. We are facing an 8-inch screen in 1920 x 1200 resolution (WUXGA), with 5 tactile points.the truth is that the resolution, both in windows and the perfect android.the only thing I do not like is that the glass is not stuck To the screen, but there is a space between them.It is almost impossible to differentiate the pixels by looking at the screen carefully.

The brightness is good of vision, being IPS is to be expected.

Mention that it does not have the capacitive button of Windows, but if it has a physical button on the top.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Hardware and Performance

It carries the already well-known Intel Cherry Trail x5-Z8350, which is already the basic processor of any Chinese tablet. Is 64bit quad core to 1.44Ghz accompanied by 2GB RAM and 32GB ROM expandable by microSD.

It does not make sense to do redo testing by squeezing the tablet, since they are made in abundance on the processor, and do not represent the use of day to day.

Both booting Windows 10 and Android 5.1 is very fast, can be switched between systems, but requires a device restart. Surprisingly windows have good usability, I thought that with the size of the screen and the resolution so high, it would look all little guy, but it is adjusted automatically and can be used perfectly.

That if not only by the processor, but in this case by the RAM, is a tablet of uses BASIC, 2GB RAM is fine for Android, where I think it performs better, but for windows is little. Has no lag or anything, but if it costs him harder tasks.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Storage

There is 32GB seems a lot, especially when we come from android, where with 8GB you can survive but for a dual boot, it’s complicated.

In Android, we are left with almost 8GB of usable space, but in Windows, there are 15.5GB of which only 4.7GB is free for the user to have them. This is easily solved with a microSD. Luckily we can put up to 128GB in this way. I have tried with a 32GB and it goes well.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Software

As already said, Dual Boot, Windows 10 complete, so it can be used as a normal computer, windows takes 2 modes, computer or tablet that changes the way we see windows and others.

Android is 5.1 with OTA, at the moment there is no newer than I came with the tablet, but it is for other tablets of the brand that if they bring updates. That yes, do not expect Android 6.0 never … definitely not updated.

Android brings 3 bloatware apps, but they can be easily disabled, and as before, better do a reset as it arrives to forget about anything strange (believe me it happened to me with a tablet that bought that I had something preinstalled that I skipped advertising every so often).

Windows is activated and brings very little pre-installed: the necessary to switch to Android and typical Microsoft (Office mobile, Edge, Skype, etc.). There are 3 Chinese-name videos that seem to show some of the tablets that come in other versions of the tablet CUBE. Unlike other tablets with a 64-bit processor, the OS is also 64-bit. That if it comes preinstalled English, so we will have to install the Spanish that is very easy

To change OS, we have a button in the shutdown menu (Android) and in the toolbar (Windows). The tablet restarts on the other OS.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Battery

Review Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Windows 10 and Android 5.1 for $130

The device has a 3500mAh, something better than the previous model that was 3300, but same little, will be for 3 than 4 hours of screen, incomprehensible thing having more than enough space to include a larger battery .. my redmi note 3 pro has 4000mAh in 5.5-inch because I do not understand why they do not put a better battery, well, apart from the cost of course.

Cube iWork8 Air Pro: Conclusions

I think that for $130 is a good alternative to what there is in the local market. The dual boot is an excited, it seems extremely useful to have the option to pull Windows when necessary and the rest of the time use Android.

Of course, we can not end without mentioning that it is one of the main claims of this tablet, which is the fact that it frees us from having to choose between Windows and Android as it has dual boot. It is interesting to note, in any case, that although we are going to be able to enjoy with it Windows 10, the version of the operating system that runs Google is far from being one of the latest available as it is Android 5.1. Depending on the use that we are going to make it may not be too important a detail, but it is not enough to take it into account.

As always with the Chinese import tablets, anyway, the best comes when we come to deal with the price, and is that this Cube iWork8 Air Pro has already appeared in importers like Gearbest for about $109.99 with coupon: “iWorkC”, a price certainly attractive. It is necessary to take into account, that yes, that at the moment it is only in pre-purchase and that it will have to wait even almost a month to be able to put his hands on it.
