Performance and Display
These are the two areas where the tablet offers unbeatable value. It only takes a few seconds to load Windows 10, thanks to the snappy 7th Gen Intel Caby Lake Processor and faster RAM and SSD storage. Apps load quickly and switching between them is a breeze. Intel HD Graphics 615 can even play some of the recent game titles, but in low resolution and details. If you are planning to use your tablet for watching 4K videos and to enjoy your multimedia content, the on-board graphics packs enough power to satisfy all your needs. Overall, the performance is excellent and the tablet even beats PCs with same specs made by Asus and other companies (and thrice the price!).
Cube Mix Plus uses the exact same Samsung display used earlier in Microsoft Surface Pro. The Full HD IPS display offers brilliant colors, great viewing angles and excellent brightness levels. Colors appear as good as they get on any IPS panel, while 25% brightness is enough in even brightly lit environments. Windows icons appear to pop out of the display, while 4K videos play smoothly displaying rich colors and incredible detail. However, due to the Full HD resolution, you may need to set the text/icon size to 150% to comfortably interact with the UI using touch.
From a distance, the tablet feels like it’s made out of metal, but it’s actually all plastic, which helps keep the weight low and cut costs. However, the quality is good and the silver-brushed back feels solid. The front is home to large bezels and a stunning IPS display. The manufacturer decided to place both the speakers on the right side of the tablet. The speakers are just OK and enough for watching YouTube and video calling on Skype. If you want to truly enjoy your music, it’s better to plug in a pair of headphones. Although the manufacturer did not provide any information about screen protection, considering the asking price, we can safely assume there is no Gorilla Glass or anything like that protecting the display. This means one should better be careful and invest to buy a tempered glass to protect the screen. The tablet is neither too heavy nor too thick and is easy to handle and carry around.
On paper the battery specs seem average, but the tablet actually provides excellent battery timing. It all depends on the tasks being performed, but you can expect the tablet to last a full work day doing usual office stuff. Although the manufacturer claims up to 4 hours of video playback time, the battery actually performs much better if you are not streaming 4K videos.
Other than large bezels, mediocre speakers and lack of proper screen protection, there really isn’t anything else to complain about the tablet. However, considering the asking price, Cube Mix Plus still manages to deliver unbeatable value for the money. It even performs better than other tablets/convertibles being sold by ASUS etc. at twice or even thrice the price. If you want excellent performance, battery life and a gorgeous display at an affordable price, Cube Mix Plus is probably the best choice.
PS: ‘2 in 1’ is often misinterpreted as Windows and Android. The tablet only comes with Windows 10 Home preinstalled and does not feature Android as the second operating system.
