Lowest price so far - current flash sale brings this down to £57.02 including shipping.

I've grumbled about the risks of high price kit from Gearbest before, as warranty is pretty much non-existent, but IMO this is on the border line before you might not want to risk it! I've ordered one.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Atom X5-Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz (up to 1.84GHz)
GPU: Intel HD Graphic Gen8
RAM + ROM: 2GB + 32GB
TF card: Up to 32GB (not included)
Windows 10 / Android 5.1 Lollipop dual boot
8 inch screen: 1920 x 1200 WUXGA IPS
Bluetooth 4.0
HDMI output

Great specs and a great price. Bit of a risk with Gearbest but its so cheap its probably worth it. Hot. X)
Hope it works out. I posted a deal for this when it was just under £60 but opted for a used windows tablet for a fair bit less (Lenovo Miix 2 8") instead.
I like the look of this, def tempted, Is the screen resolution correct ? Anyone have this tablet that can review ?
I'd personally be tempted to go for this instead:

Support upto 128GB TF Cards vs 32GB on this one and Type-C. Has same spec.

There was a review on utube on these, think the Teclast had better build but screen was better on Chuwi. Also said the type -c was pointless as it was no faster than micro usb on the Teclast.

Banggood same price for the Chuwi. Banggood seems to get better feedback on here.

Put it this way - if the first one lasts more than 6 months, you're quids in in the end. That's how I see it!

The USB type-C put me off, because I have a myriad of USB chargers and cables already for phones, tablets, other devices - I am not ready to enter a mixed-mode environment just yet.

That's how I've felt about these things too. Though this sort of figure would be my maximum spend with the company as the Risk/Reward beyond that is getting too much for my taste.

The other thing I consider is that if it goes kaput, you can probably get £10-20 back selling it for parts on ebay or whatever.
really tempted but will it take bigger than 32gb micro sd card? says upto.
Can you watch mkv/avi files with window tablet without 3rd party app?

​I think MKV is natively supported in Windows 10 now, but why not just install something like VLC?
Have I got it right in that as this is below the £135 threshold you might get charged VAT (£11.40) but not duty?
Pre sale price? Won't be dispatched for a month so your looking at July before it arrives

​It said "Dispatched on 20th May" when I ordered yesterday, with 7-10 days for delivery. I agree it now says presale, maybe they ran out of stock?
They have ran out of stock hence the longer delivery estimate
Trouble is these Chinese folks can't seem to put together a reliable, or trustworthy stock system. So often they just plain lie when in fact they only put the orders in themselves once they've got your money.
You include Gearbest in that? I've ordered 20+ times, everything always arrived when expected.
In case anyone was following this - mine arrived yesterday, that was 14 days from order - slightly slower than the promised 7-10 days. No import duties, and delivered by Yodel.

First impressions from a couple of hours of use - very impressive. Screen is crisp although not as bright as some, speed is great, boot times are very fast. Android is 5.1 - first thing I did was reset this so I could go through all the first user boot menus and uninstalled a few bloat apps (Baidu search and some games) - had no issues uninstalling anything.

Partitions are set at 8GB for the Android partition and 22GB for the Windows 10 partition. Windows 10 is Home, 64 bit and activated. Office trial is installed, but no Office licence. WiFi is 2.4Ghz only, 5Ghz access points don't show up.

On boot it presents an option for Windows or Android boot - you can disable this and opt for one only, and then change between them via built in apps.

No power supply supplied, but it charges from micro-USB. One USB to Micro USB cable included for charging, and one OTG cable - which I connected a bluetooth keyboard/mouse to to test Windows.

My screen had one dead pixel which was a shame, but not visible other than on black during boot.

Huge Chinese manual supplied, but only a few slips of paper in English - but if you've used Android or Windows before, there are no surprises.

At this price I am tempted to buy another.
just to update ... Mine arrived in a week and no duty. Great tablet for the price . No complaints here , thanks gearbest
