The Teclast X2 Pro gives the Microsoft Surface series a run for its money


Chinese tech is usually about alternatives to otherwise expensive electronics, but the Teclast X2 Pro is something else in that regard. The device is some serious tablet, serious enough to give the Microsoft Surface series a run for its money.

Before you start assuming things, let me tell you it isn’t particularly cheap, the Teclast X2 Pro. It’s a $400 device; price aside, it’ll take some serious belief on your part to spend that much on a device that’ll travel (probably) half the world to get to you.

The Teclast X2 Pro has a 11.6-inch full HD IPS display, and is powered by the 64-bit dual-core Intel Core M 5Y10C CPU that can go up to 2.0GHz. With that, there’s 4GB of RAM, 64GB of on-board storage space (of course expandable), a 5 mega-pixel rear camera and a 2 mega-pixel front facing camera. What I like most about the tablet is the battery, which is 12,000mAh.

Another something that suggests the X2 Pro means business is an NGFF slot for SSD, and 2x USB 3.0 ports.

The X2 Pro will come powered by Windows 10, and Teclast also make a keyboard and stylus pen (which I feel should be a part of the retail packing, but are not unfortunately). Nonetheless, it’s $406 for now.

    Looks like a decent hybrid. I might consider buying one of these. That is, once the reviews are coming in (if they are saying that it indeed is a very decent product.)

    Teclast X16 is even better

      Nope, Core M processor is better and X16 has only Atom Z8700.

    You said you still use an Aoson m11 tablet from 3 years ago, how much capacity has the battery reduced since then?

    • November 3, 2015

      Hi Jacky I’m not sure, I’ll check and get back. I use the M11 strictly when I have to; besides that the tablet is seldom used.

        Ok, thanks, I was just wondering was there any cheap Windows tablet I could buy that would last me at least 2 years.

    The Teclast X16 Power has 8G RAM and Z8700 is more interesting.

    They should have went with Android or Cyanogenmod for the OS or even Ubuntu, and use ARM based chips to make it cheaper.

      Exactly what i was thinking…BUT :

      – Z8700 as other cherry trails is known to overheat (i think it won’t be the case with Core M)
      – Core M has 500 Ko L2 cache + 4MB L3 cache where Z8700 only has 2 Mo L2 cache

      So i think we should wait for benchmarks and reviews of heavy use before we can know which one is “better”

    But why only 4GB RAM?? At such given price and compared to other teclast offering, they should go for 8GB at least. And I doubt about the on board storage technology, not emc5.1 or even emc5.0.

    • November 3, 2015

      Agree, if not 8GB, 6GB is something that the X2 Pro should have at $400.

        @yash why don’t you take an initiative to tell teclast on bringing a better device for people who are interested for Surface tab at a bargain?

          I think his opinion matter but not that much.
          If I am wrong, you should tell a thing or two to Ramos too.

        Problem is X16 Power will have Atom Processor, not this interesting Core M. Even other tab makers are giving only 4GB with Core M, but they are giving 8GB with Atom! Which is a kind of surprising, that’s too both Atom and Core M comes with aged DDR3, no DDR4 here. Chinese phone where they are rising so rapidly, same things are not happening in tablet sector. Even good solid quality devices are too rare, look at phone from oneplus, huawei, xiaomi, vivo – I miss those quality and craftsmanship on Chinese tablets.

    @yash3339:disqus, I’m interested to buy this. Did you have this shipped to India safely?

    Can I PM you? Need help deciding with competing tablets like the Cube i7 Stylus.
