I took off the main metal strip too and noticed a good bit of difference, I left metal strip on where you plug things in though as thats obviously needed, but I'm pretty sure that the signal went up after removing the metal strip and screws that were shown, I also used electrical non conductive insulating tape to stick over any small parts that were kinda showing any dodgy looking solder etc, not a lot of it, just like 1 layer on each bit that I thought looked a bit dodgy, then to finish it off before I put the back panel on I quickly ran some superglue all the way round on the inside plastic Lip where the back lid pushes onto then made sure I had a nice clean flat surface with a thick pure cotton cloth and put the machine face down onto it and then a heavy wait on the back lid too (toolbox actually to weight it down and make it stick tightly together).

 

So I will leave it like that until tonight or tomorrow and then see how its doing, still not upgraded the firmware yet though as I said in my other post "The download links are not working" ?

To all those that "feel the difference" - in order to really see if any change makes a difference, measure the wifi speed with speedtest.net and compare with a properly designed phone or tablet. My U30GT2 with all tweaks above except new antenna, can barely produce 3Mbps at 7m away, while I get constant 20Mbps with Asus TF101 and Nexus 4 at the same distance. I get full speed with Cube only at 1m.

Good.

I let a sequence of my experience, if someone can give me a cable and on the other hand I have cojido mania both Chinese story (I do not say that there will be people with words, but as far as I'm concerned, and other forums - neo003-lying is superlative).

a) cube-tablet.com thought was the tablet manufacturer and urgently needed for various reasons, so I booked it into your page.

b) I paid with paypal, and by cube-tablet.com emails telling me that yes, they were already sent. By the way I paid the tablet and an extended warranty to two years.

c) more e-mails and e-mails, after 40 days since I paid a dispute paypall interjected. Another round of lies, that if it is sent, if messaging.

d) day 55 I got a pager. Day 60 came to my house. I could not believe (so, since the messenger SingPost took until he came to my house it took five days, incredibly good).
Defects: for what the poor wifi, a dead pixel, and it does not recognize bluetooth devices

e) after 15 days of having it, the little button wifi not be reset to On (wifi-off .... .... wifi wifi-off-off). I asked in the forum, I researched, ..... and watching online are thousands of cases, with different versions cube, which include: Wi-no-more.

d) as I was able, back to e-mails with cube-tablet.com. And again his odyssey trying to undermine my moral: do you update, send me pictures of the problem .... do you factory reset, send me pictures of the problem ..... do you update to v2, send me pictures of the problem ..... So every day, for 20 days (at the time I insisted that they are manufacturing defects, and that I have warranty and extended warranty ..... but they only served to delay the time)

e) finally tells me to send it, and here comes another: that I pay the going, and they pay back. I say that I disagree, but I send: sent by courier 38'55euros cost me. 10 days ago I facilitated the locator (the ship on Wednesday June 26.
I tell him I disagree and I must 38'55 €. I respond "tablet work when you received it?".
Ole, what the warranty covers up to the first power?. I tell you one dead pixel, wifi antenna fall: are factory defects and 100% of the shipping is your concern (I have been sending the videos that are online, photos of the welds in the form of ball .. ... that are factory defects or hidden defects).

f) However, by the locator, arrived within 5 days. I was told I would warn when received, but have had no response. I keep asking you to give me some information, I told them that at least keep me informed, and I will detail this case in a forum of many users (HTCMania). Nothing at all ..... I wait they please to tell me something serious next year?.

So, more than three months without living in the m .... the tablet, and this is not wish on anyone, so in my case the value can not be more shocking, 15 days of Pronatura, and brutal ordeal and no sign that this nightmare is over.

If anyone has some recommendations that can serve, is eternally grateful.
And I hope that my example with cube-tablet.com others serve to make them go warily.

 

Latest: 

. Locator correos.es  says, "delivered at the destination office Beijin 30/06/2013 08:35 h".

. but cube-tablet wrote me:  yet we have not received, is underway. "Leaving the international office of origin 30/06/2013"

I took off the metal/chrome strip that goes all the way round apart from the part where you plug your charger and usb in etc, that got put back on, and then I put glue all the way around the inner lip of the plastic case and put the back of the machine back together, then I left it over night with a quite heavy object ontop of the Tablet so that the back stayed tightly glued closed without any gaps showing etc, after that the wifi signal was better, not perfect but defo good enough to walk about the house up and down stairs etc and have a video and voice chat with someone using the app "skype" without hardly any signal or picture/sound jitter or anything, yes the wifi signal would go up an down a bar or two from full strength then maybe drop a couple of bars etc, but thats usually normal anyway with my experience with most wifi devices, plus the fact that its normally better to have the wifi router in a part of the house up high rather than downstairs next to your tv and/or computer/ satellite boxes/ cable boxes, cordless phone base units etc, they all cause electrical noise (snr) interfierence, but you normally always find that people will 99% of the time have thier routers sighted next to other electrical equipment, but it normally should still work ok, but yea, electrical devices next to your router "in theory" can cause interfierence with the signal.

 

My speeds for some reasons on the Tablet seem to be great, if you download the app "speedtest.net" and run a speed test it tells you a pretty accurate reading of your internet speed.

 

I have my Tablet running off my sky wifi router signal, and for some reason the wireless tablet shows a better download and upload wifi speed than the router connected directly to a pc using an ethernet cable, so theres one to think about, lol, that certainly is strange, but I am not complaining, LOL.

 

p.s

when I had the tablet opened I covered any bare parts of solder or anything like that I seen with a single strip of non conductive electrical insulating tape.

lol, dont know about that, its basically as good as the latest apple mate if the firmware just gets sorted which it will.

 

But really, instead of the chinese paying thier staff 5 pennies per day in wages they should pay them a decent wage and charge us a little more for the goods (not much more) and at end of the day we would have a perfect product.

 

Just think about it, where does nearly all your electronics come from, and I dont mean Clone things, I mean genuine things, probably 90% of all parts of everything are made in china anyway, so one way or the other we always end up buying chinese goods, its just that the large manufacturers that are genuine and well known names tend to pay thier workers a bit better wages and the factories can afford the best of technical equipment too so that they can make sure goods are built perfectly, where'as the little back street factories where they make the clone stuff, they dont have all the fancy expensive equipment like the large companies and that results in us being able to get Cloned cheap goods that in general are always great quality apart from the odd few items, they know if its not going to be good enough then it wont sell, so it has to be at least a reasonable quality.

 

Thats just my thoughts on the matter, either that or go and buy the latest apple tablet and pay double or three times as much money, lol, I think I will stick with the chinese clones, hehehehehe.

- The tracking says my pack is in the post office they provided me:  2013-july-09, Shenzhen, Guangdong 518109 = Unsuccessful delivery . I do not even receive respond to emails those cube-tablet.com

-  17 july  cube-tablet.com  e-mail responds: "I am so sorry that info we have not received your package now. Please contact your post office in time"
It means, tracking says it is in shenzhen, guangdong 518109,  and they(cube-tablet.com) would lie as they want ¡¡

To be honest I didnt apply any of the fixes, my wifi very rarely drops, and the wifi signal is the same as my galaxy s3, only thing is upload speed is terrible, also since last update the screen doesnt jump around while charging, so for a tablet that cost half of a branded version im quite happy, responsiveness is good with mine, better if not the same as my s3, I even have the tablet on the boat where I cant charge it and and it has lasted 5 days in standby with news reading and emailing on a daily basis, thought I would add a little positivity :)

I just received mine and flashed it to the latest 4.2 android. The tablet is nice and the screen really beautiful in HD.

I have two issues (so far). The 3.5 mm jack is not working properly, I have to play with the 3.5 mm male plug and keep it not fully engaged. If I engage it fully, the voices (when someone speak) disappear as some frequencies seem to be lost. But I can manage.

The second issue is the wifi, definitely not good. I haven't done anything as I didn't have a torx 3 (had torx 4 and up though). I will try to remove the metal strip and see, but very likely will upgrade the antenna.

I don't get wifi in my living room, about 15 m away and 3 walls between. I do get wifi with my phone and laptops (any laptops I ever had work, even the shittiest). My wife's tablet (A Samsung Galaxy Tab 2) works as well there. So the Cube wifi is of the poorest quality. I will update after I remove the metal strip and add some tape while I am at it. If this doesn't work, then I will order an antenna and try that. I also experience wifi drops on standby so I don't receive any notification. I think this is not due to the wifi hardware but more software (even if I leave the tablet next to the router where reception is great, I have the issue, so the drops are caused by the software).

Other than that, I am very pleased with the device. I haven't added games yet. I did watch some HD videos and the experience is very enjoyable. The battery life is good as well, even in HD mode. I bought it for school to keep my books and scan my notes so that I can read while I commute.  Wifi is not a really big issue, yet I'd like to have a tablet that works decently.

I think it is a great tablet and should the wifi be solved, then you would have the best tablet on the market for the price. The Samsung Tab 2 my wife has is lame in comparison - in terms of speed and power - but I paid 400 or so for it, and at least it has very good wifi (which is essential because the kids use it to watch netflix at home and move around with it, so wifi was the most important thing on it).

I would also like to add that I bought the Cube on BuySKU for 264 USD (with shipping) which is probably more than you can find somewhere else. They threw a case in. The support I received from them with respect to a glitch with my order was exceptional (that's why they added the case and gave me a 10 bucks discount on top of it). I bought 3 items total on that website and they have always delivered (I have no affiliation with them). When something is good it ought to be said.

More later...

This sums up my feelings aswell, although I have to say without a doubt that when my tab is in HD mode the battery life is way better, yes HD mode.

But I agree wifi is the only thing letting this great cheap tab down, but since I always tether from my phone its not a prob, until the day I get a call from my network saying, `hey mister, we know what your doing, so please stop` , but they havnt rang yet

I was told that if we all had a "great wireless output router" or at least a lot better than the one we own now then that should make litrally any wifi device work perfect anyhwere in the house or even out in the garden etc, this model here was mentioned >> 

 

So I am seriously thinking about buying one of these to try and get this stupid Cube U30GT2 antenna/aerial/wifi/wireless issue/fault sorted !

 

What do you guys think on what I have been told ? please let me know.

 

p.s

the new powerfull signal output router you buy like the example I was recommended is supposed to simply plug into your own current router using an ethernet cable and thats it, simple as that, you just turn off the wifi output on your current one and then do everything from the new one after that, its said that there is absolutely no loss in signal at all (only a massive gain) and its also said that there is definitely zero loss in wireless upload or download speed, infact you might even gain speed too, so they say anyway :)
