Haters gonna hate, but I like it.

I see many people hate this tablet for being Windows 8/8.1 tablet. Let haters hate this, I love this tablet. Good to be used as tablet, and laptop. I have main desktop and main laptop both running i7s, and use this tablet for light uses like browsing internet, reading comics and books off of internet. Oh great to work out because it is heavy..

Build quality 8/10 Superb build quality. I've had couple tablets, and this one has the best build quality. I took 2 points off because the keyboard dock broke on me after 6 months.
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 9/10 It's freakin Windows!! install chrome or firefox, then you will have full internet in your hands. I took 1 point off for lack of 1Gbit ethernet adapter.
Multimedia 9/10 Perfect, but 1 point off for lack of dedicated card which results in lagging when watching 1080p movie.
Camera 6/10 I don't use camera on tablets. I just use one on my phone. But 5 MP?? Are you kidding me Sammy??
UI speed 10/10 Windows 7 on similar tablets were not meant to used with touch screen. It was horrible. Windows 8 however, works great with touch. UI is straight forward. I like it.
Everyday usage 9/10 Everything is good except for it is kinda too heavy.
Text input 10/10 Keyboard dock rules!!!
Display 10/10 1080p screen rules!!!
Battery 8/10 Battery goes well for about 4~5 hours on normal mode and 6~8 hours on saving mode.


  • Full Win 8.1
  • 11 inch 1080p Screen
  • Keyboard dock
  • Fast CPU
  • S pen works perfect with many applications


  • only 128 gb storage
  • only 4 gb RAM
  • Wacom digitizer inaccurate around edge
  • Lack of dedicated graphics card
  • No Gigabit ethernet adapter

Windows 8/8.1 kills the party

JkB_SlH has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

A lot of issues whether by the frustrating OS or by the hardware.
See pros and cons.
I think that none of windows based tablets are recommended at this point,as it is not optimized for pad like usability.
I went crazy after just a couple of months.

Bottom line, I do not recommend this tablet.
