Today we talk about a tablet that is not just about Android, but of a tablet with dual boot. It is about Teclast X98 Air II, a device with two independent operating systems on board: Android e Windows, sold for just over 200 dollars (around 190 euros).
A detailed review was made by friends of TuttoAndroid.net, in which they show us the pro but also i against of this tablet, which - after all - has excellent performance with regards to gaming.
Teclast X98: how is it, how does it behave?
According to the review, the CPU does not seem to give its best in certain processes such as web browsing (probably a lighter browser could change the situation a lot), but - unexpectedly - manages to surprise with games; even the heaviest ones.
We also see that Android customization is minimal, very simple, excellent for stock Android lovers; the two systems are instead quite fluid, perhaps Windows more than Android, even if the latter wins - and with great advantage - in terms of battery life (8500 mAh): 3 days of use with Android against one day of use with Windows. Probably poor optimization by the manufacturers of Teclast X98, or poor management of Windows, as the CPU always seems to be active.
The two systems installed are at the version 4.4 as for Android, 8.1 for Windows.
Like many Chinese manufacturers, Teclast X98 Air II it has a design (a bit also the name) that recalls that of a iPad home Apple. The body - apart from the upper area, in plastic - is in aluminum, while the dimensions are 24.0 x 16.9 x 0.74 cm, for a total weight of almost 500 grams
The CPU of this Teclas X98 is one Intel Atom Z3736F to 64 quad core bit with a frequency ranging from 1.33 GHz to 2.16 GHz in burst. The GPU is also Intel (with frequency from 313 MHz to 646 MHz) and, to these, we find side by side 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM, expandable. The internal memory, always referring to the video above, is partitioned so that Windows has more space available. Supports OTG e HDMI.
On the back we find an 5 MP camera, in the front, instead, one from 2 MP. The display is well 9.7 " IPS with resolution 2048 x 1536 (QXGA): in the video you will find all the pros and cons also regarding the display.
Who can buy Teclast X98?
The idea that I did is that this Tablet is a great device for those who love gaming on mobile devices.
Yes, below this price we find other tablets with good features, but most of them have a smaller display, and not all of them offer the convenience of a second operating system.
It is therefore the ideal tablet for those who need to manage files and documents, but at the same time love to spend several hours playing.
