Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Alfawise 7.9 Inch Android Review

By Tim

This one appears to be an excellent 7.9 inch tablet with a super hi-res screen and excellent battery and touch screen performance.

This one comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and as usual includes the usual nit-picky commentary, but that is good because when you are buying something you want to know all the pros and cons.

The basic specs are as follows:

  •   Android Version 6.0
  •  MTK8173 Quad Core 1.6GHz, up to 2.0GHz
  •  IMG GX6250 GPU
  •  Equipped with 7.9 inch Retina Screen with 2048 x 1536 Resolution
  •  4GB RAM 64GB ROM
  •  Dual Cameras for Photos and Face-to-face Chat
    8.0MP AF rear camera + 5.0MP front camera
  •  Dual Band 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz WiFi

This is a very decent tablet currently available on Gearbest for $207 but there is a coupon code for it and that is: ALFAWISETAB01. That code should reduce your price a bit although at $207 this one is still a good bargain.

So make sure to check out the entire TechTablets channel on YouTube and here is that video!

That is all for right now,

Tim

This Morning’s Video Worth Sharing: The Huawei Mate 10 Pro Smartphone/The Huawei Mate 10

By Tim

Today we are looking at the Huawei Mate 10 Pro, 6 inch “flagship” smartphone. This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and as usual covers all the bases and is honest and nit-picky which is good. I have also added in a bonus video from Linus over at TechLineHD on the Huawei Mate 10 that has some advantages over the Pro version.

In the case of this particular device Andrew was somewhat at a loss to find any major flaws since this is a great device. However you must purchase this device as an unlocked non-contract device since AT&T and T-Mobile, the 2 GSM carriers out there do not carry it on contract due to pressure from the feds here in the USA. Apparently the fact that Huawei is actually owned by the Chinese government and they did get caught a few years back putting in some back-doors on their devices for spying purposes has sort of made them persona non-grata here in America.

Of course you can still get one of these, just not as part of your provider’s contract program, which would make the $799 price tag a bit easier to deal with. It is however an excellent device and considering what Apple and Google and Samsung are charging for their phones it is a bit of a bargain.

So as usual make sure to check out Andrew’s channel on YouTube and subscribe if this kind of info is what you like to keep up on.

Now let us get right to that video.

Below you will find a review on the Huawei Mate 10, the slightly less expensive, but pretty darned great phone. This is from Linus over at TechLineHD so make sure to check out his channel!

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News: Issue 5486, Okay Maybe Issue 52, General Info

By Tim

So this week was an interesting one as I  learned far more than I ever really wanted to know about VPN software and devices and also actually shot a video on my BLU Studio Energy 2 phone on the stuff I  use and why I use it.

That video and the info related to it can be found in this post from a few days ago.

I also did my taxes and it appears that I will be able to get cable in here in roughly 2.5 weeks.  That should alleviate some issues I have, since using you mobile WiFi hotspot can certainly put a damper on your web surfing, unless you happen to be rich.

I have also learned that the few visitors we do get don’t appear to be concerned about me getting rid of all the ads here. I would much rather have a cleaner site, that loads faster and not have to keep track of the latest adverts and when they expire and which new ones to put on. To put it mildly, I would like to ditch them all, if possible or certainly minimize them to perhaps just the post signature section. But of course no one has helped us out a bit. Not one single solitary person has coughed up even a dollar to help out the site. No one has registered and posted an article.

Perhaps someone out there knows what I should do to get some folks to send me stuff to test, or perhaps you have a slightly out of date product that you would like to see tested as a server. Yeah, that is what we do, notebooks, tablets, it doesn’t matter, it all gets beaten to death as a server. Got an idea, leave a comment, but do not post any URL’s since the security software here will see it as spam and it will be killed during the daily database optimization.

Obviously I am still recommending to folks to not go high end if you do not really need it. There are always fast, low cost mini-pc’s and lower end tablets and notebooks that do not cost a fortune that will get the job done.

As usual, if you want to help, donate, or inform or join and write!

So that is all I have for this edition,

Tim

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2018),Hands on Detailed First Impressions

By Tim

Tonight we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the new version of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air for 2018.

This version sports most of the same hardware as last years model, with a few improvements such as the CPU. This one has the newer Intel Kaby Lake-R quad core CPU (8th gen) and is faster, much faster.

It also includes 8 GB ram in the unit in the video although I understand that there is a 16 GB RAM version coming soon.

It has a very nice 1920 x 1080 IPS display, decent speakers and a precision touch pad. In addition it offers 2 full size USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C 3.1 port for charging, data and video out and also a full size HDMI output port.

With 256 GB SSD storage and room for expansion this device is quite appealing.  This review also takes a peek at the internals and gives us some Geekbench scores and some thermals info. There will be a full review in roughly a week or so.

So I advise checking out the TechTablets channel and subscribing if you like this kind of tech info. So let us proceed to the video!

This one is available on Geekbuying.com currently at $959.99.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Tonight I Did My Taxes And My Return Will Be Okay, But….

By Tim

As the title states, I did my taxes, filed electronically and hopefully should see a return that will pay the cable bill for a year and perhaps a month’s rent.

Yeah, living on your own ain’t cheap and we need to have stuff to test as usual, this being tax time I would have already ordered the Chuwi LapBook Air or the tiny GPD Win 10 or perhaps another 2-3 devices except cash flow here is at a minimum!

So here is the deal, the folks who donate to the site at a level of a whopping 1 dollar, will be entered to win the legendary HiBook Tablet! I of course will come up with the giveaway videos, etc in the next few days. Who knows, if you were to share this article, perhaps we would have enough donations that I could give away more cool stuff.

I want to bring testing back into the home here and have total control of the server(s) and test the crap out of whatever device I can get my hands on! It might appear to be a strange thought to you, but think about this, what other site on earth has run most of its life on a tablet? Yeah, go check, we are the only idiots doing this stuff!

Tablets, notebooks, anything mobile gets put into service as a web server. So click the damned donate link and help us reach our rather minimal goal of $1800, or if you happen to be a manufacturer send us your product and we WILL beat the crap out of it and offer unbiased reviews!

So click here to donate and I will ask no more of your time!

That is all for this evening,

Tim
