Teclast X98 Plus II Review

We have another very interesting hybrid tablet today, Teclast X98 Plus II, packed with outstanding specifications, premium build quality, and of course very appealing price tag. To start from the general overview, Teclast have many interesting products that we definitely review on FindPare.com in future. From the Windows 10 introduction, several manufacturers decided to pair full Windows with Android OS under one hood. The logic is simple. Usually premium and productive tablets running Android usually start from $150 and going up till mind blowing $600. Now imagine you add just another $50 and get fully featured Windows 10 that also boots into Android. Clever? Absolutely. And Teclast adopted this smart model by making affordable, yet powerful hybrids. There are tablets for every budget and every segment, and today we will review one of the most promising models in the entire line up. Let’s start the Teclast X98 Plus II review.

This monster can be used in numerous scenarios, whether it is a student note companion or all rounder for a corporate use. Plus the addition of Android multiplies the possibilities, plus Angry Birds! So to better understand this device, we suggest looking at the specs, and discussing parameters and limits.

Teclast X98 Plus ii CPU

Teclast packs the latest Intel Z8300 CPU. This CPU is Intel’s high-end mobility working horse, capable of handling everyday tasks with a breeze. Working with documents, surfing the web, YouTube, and even non intensive photo editing. And speaking mobility, we mean that this Atom family CPU is fully optimized to adapt to different environment by quickly increasing the clock speed  up to 1.84 GHz when you open Photoshop or stream HD video to your TV, and then go back to 1.44 GHz. The ability of this transition is also making a positive footprint on energy consumption, and let you use the tablet longer and more efficiently when away from power outlet. Just keep in mind that current CPU is not for 4K 60FPS gaming, and neither for heavy 3D modelling. Howeve, Intel’s Gen8 HD Graphics can easily handle some old and loved 3D games without lagging.

RAM: Even if 8Gb is slowly becoming the standard in desktop rigs, here, 4GB is enough to power this machine on this particular CPU. Aside from Windows, all your apps and games will literally fly on Android OS. Finally, we should remember that Teclast X98 Plus II uses passive cooling without any noisy fans.

On board memory is limited to 64Gb, with user available capacity is somewhere near 40Gb, Windows 10 and Android preinstalled. We agree that 128Gb would be a better option to put here, considering the dual boot nature of the device. But also guys at Teclast got us covered by offering SD card expansion slot. Fair enough move to let users add required capacity for all media and work needs. We strongly believe that you should get SD card as soon as possible to store your favourite movies, series and family albums to enjoy on tablet’s so called retina screen.

Speaking of the screen, producers packed a large 9.7-inch IPS display with stunning 2048x1536 resolution. No more pixelated photos, no more problems on the sunlight. Plus IPS panels offer great viewing angles and vivid, natural colour reproduction. This idea of putting high end display is definitely a welcoming move, as other manufacturers should also follow this trend. It’s not 2010 any more. In Windows, users can further fine tune the image brightness, contrast to get the ultimate picture output.

Even if everything in this tablet is screaming about mobility, designers made a great solution by putting all slots into one side. The main advantage of this positioning is the reduction of wiring mess when you wish to use this tablet as a PC by connecting external monitor. All cords go in to one direction (not the boy band, just direction), and provide the clear look on the table. Although, Teclast X98 Plus II lack any USB port, we can easily connect any external device by micro USB slot or use an adapter. Micro HDMI slot will cast the screen to external monitor or even TV. As with previous reviews, we recommend that you use Windows Projection Mode, which allows the user to turn OFF the tablet screen. DC jack will be the main power input source here.

Aluminium is always a good idea. Not only the tablet gets the premium and more expensive looks, but also helps for hear reduction. There are no fans in this tablet, and continuous usage will result in noticeable heating on the back plate.

Conclusion

Teclast build an awesome all rounder device without compromising on performance and look. Dual boot tablets are slowly becoming a mainstream among Chinese producers who want to bring the best of both worlds. The only minor lacking point in this tablet is the lack of GPS sensor. Best solution would be to use an external GPS receiver if you plan to use this tablet as a main navigation option. Otherwise, for around $160 currently this is an ideal choice and perfect gift for any tech savvy person.
