In recent years, Chinese tablet PC market has been developed rapidly, many manufacturers have released their own tablet pcs, and every one hopes they can make a lot profits from this market. However, today we make deep review about Cube tablet pc, they has launched the first tablet pc Cube U9GT. Now in May, 2014, Cube launched its first and new tablet PC,Cube Talk 9x U65GT
. Today, i will make the comprehensive review about this tablet pc. Let’s explore what Cube Talk 9X will impress us.
Cube Talk 9X sports by 9.7inch 2048×1536 pixels Retina IPS Screen, and it adopts OGS technology, the front has no more extra design besides a 2-mega pixels front camera and sensor. The front design is overally clean, let Cube Talk 9x show a pure temperament.
The back uses the magnesium alloy material, which feels superior. The design of back sides seems not to be at distinctive angles. 8-mega pixels main camera is slightly higher than the back. The combination of round corners and the metal surface seem complement each other. The top middle of the back is RF antenna, whose material is plastic, the gap between the backplane and RF antenna is very close, which is very good workmanship.
Cube Talk 9x has 7mm thickness, side metal cutting line has nice workmanship, which is very delicate when using fingers across it. The keys mainly installed on the top right place, whose touching feels a little rigid, in the lower right is Micro SIM card slot. Top 3.5mm headphone jack and Micro SD expansion slot discrete on the both sides of RF antenna. It’s a little disappointed that the Micro SD expansion card slot of Cube Talk 9x doesn’t use the anti-dust cover, just exposing directly, which is easy to cause the dust or other dirty to enter in. The both sides of the lower Micro USB port is the louderspeaker.
Cube Talk 9x makes us satisfactory in its design, the front integrated design and metal back cover can attract us more, but the pressing keys seem slightly hard, and the port of expansion card slot lets cube Talk 9x lose some points. In addition, 560g weight is a little heavy, if we hold it too long, we will feel tired.
Before testing Cube Talk 9x performance, let’s see its hardware first.

Supporting 3G TD-SCDMA and WCDMA is the latest feature of this tablet pc, which is very practical,but the loading speed is a little slow. In addition, Cube Talk 9x supports 3G Phone calling, and the calling quality is quite nice. But if we use this 9.7inch tablet pc to make calls, we need to take some courage.
Cube Talk 9X equipped with Android4.4 operating system shows quite smooth effects. For those Android system lover, Cube Talk 9x can meet your needs. Because Cube Talk 9x OS has not been customized, which makes us feel very clean to use.
But I think this is a question, in the android market homogenity currently, each tablet manufacturers want to make a breakthrough, the most direct way is to carry out their own custom UI system. The times of compete only with its hardware has gone, doing better in users’ experience is the other way to be outstanding in function.
The experience of system of Cube Talk 9X is quite good in general, thanks to original Android operating system. Although the system is very clean and pure, Cube Talk 9x doesn’t belong to Google. After the lost personality, Cube leaves a road of creating the good hardwares. And there is a long road to go in this way to make breakthrough.
Cube Talk 9x is equipped with 800-mega pixels real camera, coupled with optimization of Cube camera system, the whole camera of Cube Talk 9x has a lot of playability to a large extent.
In addition to traditional camera mode, Cube Talk 9x has panorama mode, scenarios mode, movement tracking, face beautification, multi-angle mode, HDR and so on. It’s very funny to play!
About the image quality, Cube Talk 9x performs well on color reproduction. There is almost no color casting or saturation overflowing problem. But by the sample photo, the camera of Cube Talk 9x has the situation of white balance drift, and shows somewhat inadequate picture sharpness.
Overall, the camera performance is not so bad, which can meet our daily needs. And Cube Talk 9x support wifi, 3G WCDMA network, which provided more convenience about social network for us by taking pictures.
In conclusiion, Cube Talk 9X
is a really nice tablet pc with delicate design and good performance, but the system lacks its personality which makes Cube Talk 9x less cool. In a word, this is the one outstanding tablet pc that we need to enjoy right now from 1949deal
