Exclusive Pipo M1 1.6Ghz Android Jelly Bean Tablet hands on Video!

The Pipo M1 is possibly one of the best value Android tablets on the market today! Not only does it have the latest Android Jelly Bean OS, but it also boasts a great screen and a super performing Rockchips 1.6Ghz dual core CPU! Hands on video after the jump!

So last week I received a Pipo M1 Android Jelly Bean tablet from the great folks over at Pandawil, after a few days of playing around with this awesome 9.7 inch device I’ve finally managed to put together a short hands on video.

In the video you will get a good look at the white Pipo M1 dual-core Android tablet, plus a first hand look at how well this low-cost Chinese tablet performs through gaming tests and Antutu and Quadrant benchmarks!

The Pipo M1 Android tablet features Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a dual-core Rockchips 1.6Ghz CPU, 9.7 inch IPS screen, 1GB RAM, and dual 2 mega-pixel cameras.

    Thanks for the review, Andi. The PIPO M1 looks excellent. Eventhough the the Rockchip RK3066 is dual-core it scores close to the nVidia Tegra 3 in performance because it has a newer memory controller and works with DDR3.

    Can you please comment on the battery life and wifi performance? I’m also curious about how well the M1 interfaces with peripherals. Jelly Bean finally supports USB audio. Are the USB micro ports and the proprietary power plug convenient to use?

      @Boris I\’ll try to do a write up on the battery this weekend.

    Are you planning a comparison chart of all these phones and tablets with the usual main features ?
    I mean camera details, antutu bench, embedded 3g/wifi, ppi, suggested price, multicolor, RAM and inches (that should be fine)

      @Gabe if time allows it would be great 🙂

    Hi Andy,

    I´m also pretty interested in the battery life. How long can you work with the Pipo before charging it again?

    Thank you.

    • September 13, 2012

      @Ernesto I\’ll try and do a run down over the weekend to let you know how it is.

    Thanks for the detailed review of Pipo M1. I also wantt o know the opinion about Battery life and WIFI performances. I read some forums on the box it is written 7800 Mah and in many websites 8000 mah. What is the real…is it single battery or doublw 4000 mah each?

    I received the Pipo M1 yesterday and I’m very happy with it so far!

    Just got the “Ramon2025” rom installed http://tiny.cc/epw1kw.
    Now i have a English standard keyboard instead of Chinese 🙂

    @Geodex you mentioned the same rom, however there is now a release 2 available.

    Great value for your money 🙂

    Hello Andy,
    I have just purchased the PIPO M1 after watching your reviews over the pastcouple of weeks. It is my first tablet and playing around trying to personalize the homescreen I have deleted the bookshelf off the screen. Am I able to restore this wthout resetting? I don’t want the default chinese lang…Thanks Melanie 🙂

      If you reset it you can go in to the language settings and change it back to English.

    • October 15, 2012

      Im using an old iPad one fits pretty well as long as you don’t mind not using the rear camera 😉

    Man, I need to choose between a google Nexus 7 vs these tablet. I want to use it at least for 3 years, for college and entertainment (Use of octave, alternatives to Microsoft office, pdf, ebooks, web browsing, etc…). Which one is better?
