Tablets with screen “about 10 inches” is quite specific. They are thick and heavy overall, they do not throw in a jacket pocket and barely able to comfortably use in crowded public transport. Well, let! But Cube Talk 9X with fellow offer much more convenience when working with content than the 7-inch “compact”. And besides, diagonal – only one of many benefits trends Cube.

Cube Talk 9X I got in a box made of cardboard beige. Boxing wall very dense, so that doubts about the security gadget during transport no. Printing at least she restrained.
Unpacking the tablet, the first wow-effect subsides slightly – for the interior decoration of the box is saved. Cube Talk 9X to transport the film rests in bed, with him will see an envelope with papers. And if you get a cardboard form, shyly hiding underneath the supplied cable Micro USB and white charger.
Easy to assume what device design inspired the creation of the image of Chinese Cube Talk 9X – iPad Air recognizable in many details. Do not be scared. Importantly, borrowed elements harmonious look and perceived integrity.
Housing material planshentnika – slightly rough dark gray metal. Design “yunibodi” so that under cover will only climb very inquisitive users with specific skills. Immediately drew the attention of the thickness of just 7.5 mm. In hand the device is good, although the size is still not involve the use of one-armed (and long on weight Tapan on the screen is not comfortable – 560 g quickly begin to be felt).
Buttons and connectors are concentrated along the edges of the housing. On the right find volume rocker and the power button, a bit further – a metal tray for SIM card format Mini. The left side is empty.
At the top adjoin the headphone jack and not covered with a plug slot for memory cards MicroSD.
In the center of the lower end will see the port Micro USB, and on either side of him – the lattice of the stereo. Sound, by the way, loud, but not too sweet. More suitable for games and movies than listening to your favorite music.
The front panel is extremely minimalistic. Her whole plane is covered by a glass (or some similar tactile polymer). Above the screen you can see the eye of the front camera, and if you look closely, several sensors. Softkeys not – used the onscreen buttons.
The rear panel is very moderately “decorated” inscriptions – Chinese Cube logo emblazoned in the center, and below focuses official information about planshetnike. In the upper left corner put a small camera with flash unit.
Screen “Retina” – one of the key advantages of the model. He is the technology OGS, IPS has a matrix with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels at a diagonal of 9.7 inches. Density of points in the 264 ppi is impressive against the backdrop of a 5-inch smartphone screens FullHD, but planshetnike picture looks very dignified.
The display shows true colors without the express inflection in cold or warm tones. High brightness, even under direct sunlight picture remains chitabilnoy. Maximum angle of coal, which is typical for such panels.
Cube Talk 9X built on the popular platform among Chinese MediaTek. Kernel device has become an eight-processor MTK8392, each nucleolus accelerates to 1.7 GHz. Video chip – Mali 450 MP. RAM 2 GB internal memory of 16 GB or 32 GB – depending on the model.
In the synthetic test AnTuTu Benchmark tablet gaining 38,651 score test graphics system with Epic Citadel level performance High Quality showed 37,8 FPS.
If we talk about the use of subjective feelings, the Cube Talk 9X is a typical tablet on Android. That is generally smart, but sometimes some subtle jerks interface can meet. Given that it is a merit firmware and not iron, as the release updates the system more smoothen operation.
As for games, the most problems will not. I played in Asphalt 8 – flying at medium settings, at high FPS little slack and not the desired dynamics, Dead Trigger 2 – goes perfectly, Smash Hit – excellent animation in the middle graph, there is a minimum delay at high quality. C in FullHD movies too, no problems, visuals perfectly smooth.
Autonomy at Cube Talk 9X very good – 9-10 hours in active mode. That is, for typical use rely on a few days of work. From complete charging the battery is recharged 3:00.
The tablet runs on extremely close to stock Android 4.4.2. Chinese preinstalled applications in the test sample was not of “loyalty” programs unless the player MX Player Pro. As for me, so much better than when a gadget packed to capacity doubtful (not yet localized) software.
Do Cube Talk 9X two cameras – 8-megapixel (F2.0) with autofocus and basic 2-megapixel front. Quality shooting expected average when compared to the flagship smart and decent for this price level.
At the same time we have with exotic WCDMA, cell module Cube Talk 9X supports GSM and 3G. I tested the tablet with card 3mob (Ukrtelecom) – Pius good quality, communication is kept stable, fast internet.
Wireless modules Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b / g / n and Bluetooth 4 .0 c EDR work expectedly good. There is support for standard wireless transmission media signal Miracast, more detail about him can be found here.
GPS works right out of the box (no calibration required). Cold start takes about one and a half to two minutes, then picked up by satellites within seconds. With Yandeks.Navigatorom and Navitel tablet turns into a full-fledged navigator.
New Cube Talk 9X can not be called “another Chinese tablet.” The device plays a large specific weight category – display has a diagonal of 9.7 inches and a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Tablet equipped for its huge size battery to 10,000 mA / h, which provided a decent autonomy. He has a decent iron, enough for comfortable work and even most games. And Cube Talk 9X very subtle and pleasant tactile rough metal casing. Summing up, in every sense a worthy solution.
