I tested a Cube U30GT2 for a short time and got a bit disappointed by its WiFI performance.

I don't have a Cube anymore but from what I read on forums, the performance hasn't changed much since the last 3 firmware updates, so I think it's mostly an hardware issue.

 

Here is a quick WiFI performance comparison versus a Onda V972 and a Google Nexus 10.

Just installed the new firmware. I cant download most of the apps don't know why. Its just stays at downloading and thats it.

Edit: It seems that Google play is working from time to time. The same application that wont download after a while it downloads. Its kind of frustrating cause the tablet seems a lot faster and fluid.

 

Any solution?

Hi!

 

Thank you for the firmware! You work is excellent!

 

I have an issue with communication using Skype and Google hangout. This can be reproduced using 1.03 or 1.05 or one of the latest firmwares. So I can repdoruce the issue on all firmwares.

 

Skype: If im talking, there is a weird "static" noise. Or stuttering, sorry I don't know the best word. My voice is loud enough to hear it, but that noise is irritant. The microphone in the tablet is working, because I have tested it with simple voice recording applications and it works fine (no weird noise in the recording).

 

Google Hangout: Microphone is working fine, but I can't hear anything. My girlfriend is talking and I cannot hear a sound. I have checked her settings and everything is okay. Hangout is working on my PC, I can hear her voice.

 

Is there anyone with these issues? I have no idea what is the source of the problem. Maybe a bug in the original firmware.

Same issue with skype noise in my tablet too. Something more like distorted sound not in the tablet but in the laptop speakers with which i am communicating (of course the tablet and the laptop are in different places).

 

So as far as now the issues that in my opinion should be fixed are

1)HDMI timeout that is very useful when watching a movie in the tv (there is no need for the tablet screen to operate and drain battery)

2)skype distorted sound

3) battery stats... in case anyone need them

Firmware for the U30GT2 can't ben installed on the U30GT, both machines have different hardware.

That's sad the manufacturer has stopped making updates for their older model, hopefully they'll provide an Android 4.2 update at some point.

You can also look at the custom firmware options like Crew RKTablets work: RK30 Genio by Oma rocks – 4.2.2 Test Build

I've just applied the firmware update and then installed Netflix as my first app - sadly it no longer works. I can connect to it and select a movie but the playback starts with an interlaced screen and then degrades to the point where I have colourful squiggly lines on the screen. I had no problems like this with the original firmware -  does anyone have any idea why it would be doing this?

I installed the new firmware version 4.2.2 rot 3. I can say that I found the Opera browser in Chinese and another. Fluid seems to use but I notice that the sound volume is lower than version 4.1.1 (05). I think he needs a more comprehensive review.

Yes, there is a chinese version of Opera and some chinese app market that I couldn't uninstall.  I guess they got missed in the cleanup.

New to this forum and was very happy to install the new firmware, but I have seen that Netflix doesn't work and a few other problems.  I just disabled the apps I didn't want and seems ok for now.  Hopefully the bugs will get worked out and then I'll try it.  Keep up the good work.

I noticed one thing with the latest firmware. I think the LCD is a little birghter now which is a great thing. Before I did not see any difference in the last 25% of brightness. Now it will get brighter all the way up to 100%.

 

Anybody else noticed? Even if I imagine this it is good thing, at least for me... ;)

Thank you for your reply! Now I know im not alone with this skype issue. I have also noticed graphical glitches on the bottom of the screen (android button bar), occures random times.

 

How can I report a bug to Cube? Is there any official forum for bug reports or a specific site for this? I don't speak chinese, so im lost on their websites :)
