Hello, today the program a test last iFive tablet 3 .

As usual, I bought it on HGK duty free and free shipping.

This is a 9.7 inch tablet format so 4/3 perfect for web browsing , reading BD / Manga ...
This model is the first screen says " Retina " brand . It is powered by the now very common Rockchip RK3188 supported 2GB of RAM and 16GB eMMC ROM advertised as effective.

All this with a new model of smart Wi -Fi can work on 2.4Ghz frequency but also 5Ghz . It's been a few weeks since I have the tablet and I invested in a router with a wireless simultaneous dual band for me to test it under optimal network conditions.

Unpacking and external impressions :

Firstly , and as usual it strikes on a tablet iFive is the finish that is still growing in comparison to the X2 or the materials used seem more noble with an aluminum back bluish-gray metallic color (if if this color is lol) . To add to the impression of high-end products the tablet has a chrome border on around it.

The screen when its is beautiful, the colors and details are impressive ( Retina requires) . But the brightness will probably not be up to par for outdoor use . In my case it serves me in my couch and at night I am still obliged to decreased level .

Performance tests :

The tablet was tested with the latest custom ROM that I made on the basis of the official v2.0.1 02/19/2014 . It is available HERE and is purified of iFive lancher 2.5 and replaced by Nova Launcher which gives a better overall flow to the tablet while enjoying a rootée ROM and Fr

The overall feel is a nice fluidity to use.

Screen tests :

Nothing better to compare the screen to do with a flagship product such as apple (yes I know I'm going to lynch lol) it allows to compare the colors and especially the light that is for me the main fault this tablet and for outdoor use is not to be overlooked.

In conclusion of this part here , the appearance resolution is not some thing presentable in picture and I can tell you that this is a real plus in terms of comfort and I can not board on my laptop 15 " 1366 × 768 after : P the colors seem a deeper hair on iFive 3 especially on the blue (can be a sign that the colors tend to blue but the red one wallpapers lockscreen is bright and eye teaser ) .


Test Wi -Fi :

Wi -Fi Analyzer compared to Xiaomi MI2S :

To conclude on the Wi -Fi there is very strange debits Windows shares (SMB) in 2.4Ghz obtained ridiculous rates of 0.5MB / s and 5Ghz obtained 2.5MB / s.
These scores are taken into account only on this type of access for the next internet speeds are constant and even sharing via SMB I can play 1080P video live streaming via the 5Ghz :) ( without being able to make the rapid advance against ) .

These test results thus posing no actual use in terms of distance because it is the same or better than the PiPo M7 and X2 iFive

Tests autonomy :

Local video brightness 100% the 80% and wifi disabled = > 6% 20 minutes.

Video streaming brightness 100% the 80% and wifi enabled = > 7% 20 minutes.

Real Racing 3 Wifi enabled and brightness 100 % = > 14% 20 minutes.

The overall range is very good with very little loss in standby and overall autonomy of 7 -8h mixed use.

Miscellaneous :

I speak in the various example of the single speaker positioned at the rear . Many are disappointed not to have 2 front speakers but the format of the tablet instead less for multimedia usage compared to the X3 and therefore I think iFive very well positioned in terms of these products uses provided for each . To summarize the speaker in itself is not so bad and does not suffer from lack of power so for me quite correct.

Conclusion :

To conclude, I would say that iFive 3 is a very good shelf interior , which gives users whose use is primarily the net, reading and photography but other uses are not excluded. So I definitely recommend it and am satisfied with my investment : D

KitKat iFive 3 v2.0.3 KitKatROM of 4/16/2014 and is very fluid ! !
