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.

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!

Tonight’s Videos Worth Sharing: Beelink Ap34 Pro and a Comparison Between The Beelink and a Zotac Ci327

By Tim

Tonight we have a double feature! So grab some popcorn and prepare to learn some stuff folks!

The first video comes to us from Redskull (Alex) over on YouTube and he has a great review of the Beelink AP34 Pro Apollo Lake N3450 based mini-PC. This one has 6 GB of RAM and is quite the decent mini-PC for many uses. This one has dual HDMI ports, 4 USB 3.0 full size ports and features a metal case. It does have some downsides of course but the price is great and it might be something you may be considering.

So let us proceed to the first video of our double feature and then we will get to the one referred to in the title image of this article.

Next we get to the video we did for the channel here at High End Cheap Tech and you will see me go over the details of the Beelink AP34 Pro versus a Zotac Ci327 and  eventually reach a conclusion.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: MELE PCG02 Versus Zotac Ci327 What to Buy? (2 videos!)

By Tim

So last night I was catching up on all the videos from folks I subscribe to and I ran across a video from Alex (RedSkull) on the MeLe PCG02 mini-PC. This is one interesting little device and I will be attaching that video to this article.

So after watching the video and checking out the specs I began to think how could this thing be used? Then I began to think, since it is an Intel Apollo Lake N3450 based device, how would it stack up to say a Zotac Ci327. Obviously size is a factor but so is the ability to expand RAM and storage and temperatures.

So let us get right to where to find these devices and then the specs. The MeLe PCG02 can be found on Geekbuying right now for $179. You can find the Zotac Ci327 over at Newegg at this link for $149.

Both devices run the Intel N3450 processor and Intel 500 graphics.  That is where the similarities pretty much end. The MeLe comes with Win10 home installed and activated and an eMMC 32 GB drive. You can of course add a microSD card for storage expansion.  You are also limited to the 4 GB RAM on-board. The Zotac is a bare bones kit and you will need to get a Sata 3 SSD drive and some RAM. You will also need a Win 10 license which can be quite inexpensive.

However,  with the Zotac you will end up with faster reads and writes and be able to select your storage and  RAM options. You can put in  up to 8 GB of RAM.

The MeLe may have some heat issues depending on how you use it, although as I point out in the video, you can buy some of those little stick on rubber bumpers to the bottom to increase airflow below the PC. The Zotac has ventilation on all sides and has small rubber feet already and heat will not be an issue in 99.99% of all use cases.

Cost wise the MeLe PCG02 will be the overall winner.  For ports and cooling and a little more horsepower the Zotac will be the winner. This will all depend on your use scenario.

So let us go right to those videos, first is my comparison and recommendation followed by Redskull’s hands on review of the  MeLe PCG02. Make sure to like and subscribe to both channels!

A Short Video I Did on a Dirt Cheap Phone! The Sharp Z2! Okay There Are Actually 2 Videos!

By Tim

This article concerns the Sharp Z2 5.5 inch smartphone. Considering its age, it has some very decent specs! Folks this might not be the phone for you, but if you need to get a smartphone for a younger child to watch videos on or get one for a senior citizen, who has never had a smartphone this might be the ticket!
