LondonFarmerLondonFarmer

UK seller. specs looks fine. Use for Internet browsing, youtube, email and skype etc. (for my parents)

Question: how good is this Cube or Pipo M9 pro any better than this machine (same specs)

PIPO M9 PRO 32GB 10.1" Retina IPS Tablet PC Quad Core RK3188 Android 4.2.2 GPS

My budget is up to £250 max as I already decided to buy Nexus 7 v2 from John Lewis (2 year gurantee) for myself.

    The idea to post deal here is not to get hot chilies or cold flakes but to find out:

    1; if this is any better than most of other tablets within this price range keeping in mind the specs and quality for example viewing angle etc.

    2; Is Pipo M9 pro is any better than Cube? Anyone using any of these machines please share your experience with the HUKD members to get benefit.

    3: Thank you for hitting hot chilies so atleast it won't go into cold freezer.

    Hi,

    I think the 9,7 inch rebranded Pipo at Ebuyer is a better deal. Bigger battery, same hardware, better display, lowest price. And this is not a real Retina display its "just" a fullHD display. :)

    I got this for my OH yesterday and its very nice, I picked it up for £170 for the 32Gb version on ebay. I have not rooted or changed the firmware it is running 4.2.2

    Reddit, is it worth upgrading to that rom? I have seen it but not really sure if it is worth it apart from for using the windows?


    *EDIT THIS is the bloke I got mine from and they go from between £165 and £185 normally this is the 32Gb version

    Installing a custom ROM depends on your needs from the tablet.

    The changes are:

    defaults to english uk
    root
    bloat removed
    busybox and init.d support
    play/market fixes for more apps in Google Play
    LatinIME keyboard
    a choice of 2,4,6 and 8 gig app space, 2 is the default but the others can be selected from the flash tool.

    I personally like the idea of extending the app space to ensure that I can install more apps.

    You may also be able to install Clockworkmod to enable you to take a full backup of the tablet in case of issues that may arise.

    Thanks I will look at clockworkmod :-)

    I have read people have had problems changing it to 4gb (I think in the very link you just sent and in others) I am not bothered about the space as most you can move to the internal memory, and most of the tablet are in english a part from 5 apps that I can't seem to delete. I normally root/hack things, just wondered if it was really worth it apart from the using the free *cough apx files lol because its for the OH I am not going to do it (must resist) unless it will make it better/easier/better WiFi/faster/etc any of them and I could get away with it lol

    is this better than something like a Samsung galaxy tab 10.1?

    All "Retina display" means is a display that you can't make out pixelation on from a reasonable viewing distance, there is no technical specification to define one. It doesn't have a specified minimum PPI. So most of us have tv's with retina displays, but as apple coined the term, I think other manufacturers run the risk of a court case if they use it.

    I bought two of these a few months ago. Rooted with custom roms. Runs android 4.2 very smoothly, excellent screen and good build quality and battery life. Easily as good as samsung note 10.1 if not a little better (minus GPS and the S Pen). I paid around £170 ordered from China. I have also bought a VOYO A15 11.6 inch screen - also excellent tablet but poor camera. I am awaiting delivery on a PIPO M7pro 3g similar price but with GPS and 3g.

    I think its Pipo M6. Top resolution but reviews are bad for WiFi signal strength. M6 easily available from the same seller in the OP. Thanks for heads up.

    Can you give me a link about bad wifi signal stength reviews: And yes this is a branded Pipo m6 but I think it is better to buy here, because ebuyer is a big and trusted seller. and if you want you can change the res to 1600x1200 as well.
