Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Unboxing and Review of The 10.8 Inch Huawei M5 Pro Tablet

By Tim

This evening we have an unboxing and review of the Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro. This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and is, as usual, a great informative piece.

Like its smaller brother  the MediaPad M5 8.4 inch tablet, this one has similar specs but a lot more screen real estate for media consumption. It has a few minor flaws but is still a premium device with the latest Android 8.1 and a stylus.

So I will quit chattering here and let you get right to the video.

Lenovo Tab4 Tablet Series to Only Receive Android 8.1 Oreo in November

By Radu Iorga

These days many people are wondering why prominent devices still don’t have Android 8.0 or 8.1 on board. We still have a lot of flagships stuck at Android Nougat, some just at Oreo 8.0 not 8.1 and of course tablets galore stuck at last gen OS. Lenovo’s Tab4 tablets may have been best sellers, but they’re in for a long wait till Oreo comes.

We’ve learned from official sources that the company is working on the updates, but we’ll have to wait till November to get them. We’re talking about the Lenovo Tab4 8, Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus and Lenovo Tab 4 10. Interestingly, the official list seems to be lacking the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. Updates will be rolled out in November 2018, complete with Play Protect, notification dots/badges and snooze for notifications.

Picture in Picture and battery enhancements will also be here. It’s very likely that the Tab4 models will stop at Android 8.1 Oreo and won’t receive Android P. I find it interesting that these Lenovo slates jump straight from Android 7.1 to Android 8.1, not to Android 8.0, but I’ve seen that approach before on phones. Such slates have been great hits in countries like India, where Lenovo has a strong foothold and also in Asian countries.

They’re the kind of tablet that gets bundled with a new TV set, a carrier contract or some sort of special offer, especially the smaller versions.

Another Video To Share: Zotac Ci323 Mini-PC Gets A Full Set Of Benchmarks

By Tim

Today I installed and ran Cinebench, Passmark, Crystaldiskmark and Geekbench 4.0 on the little Zotac here. The results were similar to when it was purchased and the disk was clean a few years ago.

Below is a small gallery of the results of the test.




Having never run Passmark nor Cinebench I can’t even say if the results were good or horrible. But the numbers are here to look at!

Incidentally you can still get the Zotac Ci327 with the N3450 at Amazon for about $149! You can find the Zotac Ci327 at this link.

Below you will find the video we created yesterday evening as we ran these tests.

Microsoft Foldable Windows 10 Device rumored to be Powered Snapdragon 1000 CPU

By James A.

There’s a new rumor going around and saying that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 processor was specifically created for Windows on ARM devices. Nothing exactly new here, but we also have a very strong candidate for that premiere: the Microsoft Andromeda device.

Also known as the Surface Phone, the device is now said to be packing the S1000 CPU, which is also meant for laptops, desktops and even the HoloLens 2. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 CPU is certainly going to be powerful, judging by the name alone. Microsoft Andromeda isn’t the sort of modern flagship that competes with the Galaxy S9 or iPhone X, but rather a separate beast.

It’s meant to usher a new age of Microsoft hardware and a new type of design. It won’t look like your average smartphone and not even like your average foldable. It should have a discrete hinge down the middle, two foldable screens and a plurality of formats to approach. Microsoft already published a slew of patents over the last year, all of them related to the Surface Phone, so hype is huge.

The rumored device will be a dual screen machine, with Windows 10 on ARM, or some sort of Windows Core version. Mum’s the word on whether or not this device will actually be ready for the fall release…

Today’s Second Video Worth Sharing: The Huawei P20 Pro Smartphone Full Review

By Tim

Today we have another great review from Andrew over at AMDTech. This one is on the Huawei P20 Pro and unlike the huge rush of reviews on the day or two after this thing was released, this one comes to us from a reviewer I trust, without the hype and points out all the pros and cons.

I have a short list of reviewers I trust which you can view by going to our YouTube channel here and checking the playlist for Reviewers I Trust. Chris over at TechTablets and Andrew at AMDTech are at the top of my list. Both are nit-picky and will point out all sorts of things that might make you not want to buy a product. Every reviewer on my list follows that same formula. Honesty first, little to no hype at all!

So the Huawei P20 Pro is an amazing flagship phone and takes killer photos. Is it the best, well, that is obviously best left to those who have actually tested one out thoroughly and that is why we have the video below!
So watch the video, reach your own conclusions and make sure to subscribe to Andrew’s channel if tech info is your thing!
