What’s Orange and runs Windows 10? Meet the Voyo Vbook V3


Voyo Vbook V3

Looking a lot like the latest convertible laptops from Lenovo, the Voyo Vbook V3 comes in a bright orange case, with Windows 10 and a stylus.

Voyo are another Chinese tablet maker that have embraced the Intel Cherry Trail chipset, the popularly in Windows 10 and affordable stylus features to create the Voyo Vbook V3 Ultrabook.

The folding device can be used as a standard 13.3-inch laptop with physical keyboard or bent in two and used like a tablet. An included stylus brings additional creative possibilities to the screen.

Voyo Vbook V3

Hardware includes a 1920 x 1080 display, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory, 10,000mAh battery, USB 3.0, HDMI out and Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 quad-core processor. Voyo have also added a couple of cameras in there for photos and video chat plus an SD card slot for up to 128GB SD cards.

Voyo Vbook V3

The bright orange folding laptop/tablet is available through Gearbest for $279.51, and don’t worry if you prefer a more subtle colour as grey is an option too.

    There is also an Onda ultrabook that looks exactly the same, and even has the same specs

    • January 25, 2016

      What’s the price like?

        Sorry, actually it’s not this model.
        The similar ones are Voyo A1 and Onda obook 11

          Although you would have to be a sadist to consider buying the onda. Without doubt doubt the worst Chinese tablet oem.

      Yep, either Onda oBook 10, or better, oBook 11… but I really doubt about the robustness of those ones (Voyo included) 🙁

      • Wolvie
        January 26, 2016

        But not necessary cheaper becoz’ for onda oBook you need to pay separately for the detachable keyboard.

          Ah sorry, i only refer to Onda oBook 10.

          Onda oBook 11 included a keyboard (not detachable though)

    What pen is it? Doubt it is wacom so maybe synaptics? Would need to see a video before buying.

    Yep, it’s a nice one…but I’ve preferred (and bought) the Pipo W9S instead: better look IMO, and a bit cheaper …

    • Akimitsui
      January 25, 2016

      Of course that will be cheaper, it does not have as many features as this one. This has a 1920×1080 resolution while the Pipo has 1366×768.
      This supports pen input, the Pipo does not.
      This supports SD cards up to 128GB, the Pipo only 32GB.
      This folds into a tablet, the Pipo does not.
      And you can’t deny the design of the Pipo looks like an unbranded MacBook Air…

      • pa5t1s
        January 26, 2016

        Indeed, a MacBook lookalike 🙂
        Yes, I’ve read all these differences, but still…
        * larger screen, 16/9 but less resolution: I can live with that.
        * no pen, I can live with that too.
        * it’s *not* a tablet, but a laptop! and that, I wanted!!
        * SD cards up to 128GB: that’s the only ‘bad’ feature…but hey! you can’t have it all for such a nice price 😛

          So, after 2 months how do you feel about the Pipo w9s? Is it a good buy ? Is it well made ? Performance or problems ? Thanks!

          • pa5t1s
            March 21, 2016

            It’s a good device, worth its price and its specs. Windows 10 is running smoothly, and the overall performances are enough for a ‘light’ usage: mail, web surfing (Chrome), photo and video playing (YouTube, VLC), eBooks in PDF… X5 Z8300 is not a ‘beast’ but it does the job. Never run a ‘game’ tho, but I don’t play either.
            I only have one problem with mine (most probably hardware- or -BIOS-related) : booting is sometimes ‘hazardous’, getting an EFI shell screen and prompt. I still haven’t found a solution or workaround on dedicated forums, but still searching…

            • Christos8
              March 21, 2016

              Thank you for the reply, much appreciated ! Is this efi screen problem something that can eventually “brick ” the laptop ? How do you resolve it ?

            • pa5t1s
              March 22, 2016

              As far as I’ve read on dedicated forums, I would say ‘No’. There seems to be situations where ‘this’ is a sign of general failure, without any boot to Windows (like damaged boot disk, bad wiring aso…) In my case, I think that Windows update 1511 somehow f**ked up the boot manager (from OEM installation)… I don’t why so far. So, at first try, the internal SSD boot disk is ‘not seen’ or something (USB 3.0 problems?) After 2 or 3 Shutdown+Power On, everything’s booting and working like a charm. It’s ‘boring’ but working…
              Fix: hold down Power button for ~10 seconds, until the NumLock LED lights up, then release Power button. Working 90% of time, at first.
              Anyway, waiting for a fix from Pipo (new firmware?)

      did you got it? how much it cost? include shiping? It is support WiDi?

      • pa5t1s
        January 26, 2016

        Yep,got it today, via DHL.
        On AliExpress, it was 225euros + around 10 euros shipping.
        Add 38euros of customs and taxes in EU/FR (thanks to DHL) and you’re delivered.
        No idea about WiDi. need some time to discover everything first :0

    Some review about quality (keyboard, screen, hinges, etc.) or durability?

    • Nitin Dahyabhai
      July 17, 2016

      Keys are flat, but surprisingly deep and with a noticeable wobble to them. Spacing is good, though. Screen is decent, being IPS, but there is a visible air gap between it and the surface. Hinges are very strong. Pen is accurate, but I’m not sure it has variable pressure support. The giant battery may be required for the relatively high res screen, but the whole thing is heavier than I’d like as a result.

    I’m looking for a tablet/laptop with the following: >= 11 inches, >= full HD, >= 4GB RAM, has SD card slot, has stylus/pen, runs windows 10. this seems like a good candidate.
    What are some other good candidates?!
    Is Voyo a good brand or is it like elephone for tablets?

    • pa5t1s

      Never had a Voyo device, so I can’t say
