Chinese tablet company, Cube has been on fire lately. Just last month, it released Talk 79S, and few days back, it released the Talk 7X, which we will be reviewing today, courtesy of imp3. The Talk 7X is more portable, thanks to smaller 7 inch display. This screen is identical to the one being used in Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (PLS type).
CUBE Talk 7X Specs include 7 inch Samsung PLS display, 1024×600 pixel resolution, Mediatek MT8312 processor, 1 gigabyte RAM, 4 gigabytes of flash storage (expandable via micro SD card slot) , Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM and a phone radio (WCDMA, GSM). There are two cameras on the unit – 2 megapixel rear and 0.3 MP front. The CUBE Talk 7X has 2700 mAh battery and it runs Android 4.2.2 jelly bean operating system.
CUBE Talk 7X Price. It is being sold for 399 Yuan (USD 65) and you can buy it in black or white colors. The body is made of plastic.
Design wise, the CUBE Talk 7X is excellent. Power button and volume control keys are arranged correctly on the right side, allowing one handed operation. On the top, you will find a headphone jack and USB port.
Samsung’s PLS screen is at par with the standard IPS display – it has decent color reproduction and viewing angles are excellent too.
There are two micro SD card slots, both of which can easily expand the mediocre internal flash storage. There is a SIM card slot too, allowing the user to make phone calls.
While using the CUBE Talk 7X, you experience no lag. Entire operation is very smooth and there are no significant delays. This is chiefly due to powerful Mediatek MT8312 processor, which is based on low powered ARM Cortex A7 architecture. It is manufactured using 28 nm processing and runs at 1.3 GHz. The CPU is backed by dual core Mali 400 GPU.
The CUBE Talk 7X is equipped with a gig of RAM and out of box, 600 MB is taken by OS’ services and background apps. Out of 4 GB flash storage, you get paltry 1.5 GB.
We are not into benchmarks, but you get 12541 in the AnTuTu benchmark test.
Call quality and signal performance are satisfactory. The radio also supports 3G, and we were able to enjoy fast Internet speeds in no time.
Web browsing experience is excellent. Chinese sites use a lot of flash content, and this tablet does not come with pre installed flash plugin. If lack of flash does not bother you, you will do just fine.
CUBE Talk 7X Review Summary. The performance of this tablet is very satisfactory, especially when you take its low USD 65 price tag into consideration. Its display is very bright. Thanks to good optimization by CUBE, the 7x runs like a butter, even though it has a dual core processor.
