Cube iwork10 Honest Review: Windows10 + Android5.1 2in1 Tablet

cube’s first Transformer Book style 2 in 1, the new iWork10 Ultimate or iWork10 Flagship as it’s called in China. It’s a dual-boot Windows 10 and Android 5.1 tablet build around a 16:10 ratio 10.1-inch screen, powered by an Atom X5 Z8300. A now very common Intel Cherry Trail chipset for manufacturers to use. Its got 4GB of single channel RAM, clocked at 1600 Mhz. And a the usual Realtek wireless N, BT 4.0, MicroSD support. Micro HDMI Out, Micro USB 3.0 port and a microUSB 2.0 for charging and data transfer in Android. Sadly no full-sized USB port on the tablet itself.

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Design:

The finish of the iWork10 Ultimate isn’t bad considering the price, the rear is a metal alloy shell with a matte paint finish in Cube’s familiar trademark blue. The holds up well against fingerprints, however, isn’t very scratch resistant as I found on other models using the same finish. In time, the paint will show even the lightest of scratches.

The thickness of the tablet is 10.9mm and the screen bezels are 15mm top and bottom with a 20mm bezel on the left and right. With a weight of 616 grams it’s not the lightest 10.1-inch tablet but the build feels good in hand and well put together with no flex or give in the tablet build.

Cube iwork10 ultimate - Keyboard dock: (Optional)

Cube keyboard dock uses a fixed hinge style similar to the ASUS Transformer Book offers or the recently released Chuwi Hi10. Naturally with only a 10.1 tablet screen it’s a smaller keyboard that does take some time to get use to if you’re coming from a larger or full sized keyboard. Once I adjusted, I found the typing experience to be good, with few errors, but nothing amazing due to the smaller size. The keys are larger than the Hi10 dock offering, but with a little less travel. Each key is 13.8mm wide by 12.8mm high. Key travel is around 1.3mm, which is 0.1mm less than my Surface Type Cover 4.

The keyboard does include all the extra keys, like Printscreen, Del, Ins and End and home via the function key. It does include two status LEDs. One for the caps lock and trackpad when disabled.

The trackpad offers left and right mouse buttons with Windows 10 gesture support. The trackpad is 82mm wide and 40mm in height. While cramped and small, it is usable and does the job.
The build of the keyboard is great, premium even. With a metal top half with small rubber feet to keep the keyboard from scratching the screen and two USB 2.0 ports left and right.  Both ports by the way run on their own USB 2 hub and can power external 2.5″ hard drives. 

The bottom half of the keyboard is plastic with a fingerprint friendly rubberized matte finish in Cube blue. The fit and finish of the whole package together

The bottom half of the keyboard is plastic with a fingerprint friendly rubberized matte finish in Cube blue. The fit and finish of the whole package together is very good, with perfect lines and the keyboard slots in easily with the aid of magnets.

The tablet can be docked normally or flipped around to be used in presentation or tent mode. Something the T100HA also can do, but not the Chuwi Hi10 which has the mechanical latch. The screen can be adjusted from 0 degrees to 120 only, which is a limit of this design. As the more the screen is angled the greater the counter weight required.

Both tablet and keyboard docked together they weigh 1.18 kilos or 2.6 lbs. The iWork10 Ultimate keyboard comes highly recommend if you’re getting the tablet, get the keyboard.  It’s one of the best 10.1 keyboards I’ve seen to date from China.

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Screen and touch response:

The screen used in iWork10 Ultimate is the panel used in most 10.1-inch tablet pcs from China and even locally. The resolution is a modest 1920 x 1200 while not a retina screen by a long shot, isn’t bad at all when it comes to sharpness. The screen comes with a screen protector pre-applied to it. The reason is simple, it’s not a scratch resistant glass below it. But a standard soda lime glass panel.

Cube also manages to have one of the smaller gaps I’ve seen on a non-laminated display, it’s only about 1mm or even less and it makes the display look almost fully laminated. I find frustrating when manufacturers use decent screen only to have an ugly 2-3 mm gap between the digitizer glass and the IPS panel. Which can make reflections a big problem.

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Storage:

The Dual OS model reviewed here comes with a Samsung MCG8GC eMMC 4.5.1 spec drive. Speeds are good. You get 26.8 GB free on this dual boot version in Windows and in Android

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Ports & Connectivity:

Wireless & BT: The wireless is handled by a RealTek RTL8723BS wireless N adapter, range and throughput and good. No issues either with limited connection issues, which tend to happen more on the Broadcom Wireless N adapters.

Below is the speeds I got out of the tablet on the same floor as my router. Note, my desktop gets 50mbps download and 25mbps upload via a wired connection. So this result is good considering it was over a wireless connection.

HDMI: I was able to connect up my ASUS 2560 x 1440 monitor and run it like a desktop at 60hz. The Cherry Trail Atom’s can output up to 30 hz 4k if you have a 4k TV or monitor.

MicroUSB 3.0 port: I found out why Cube only includes a MicroUSB 2.0 and not 3.0 adapter in the box. The USB 3 port has some power issues in USB 3.0 mode. It will power my Sandisk extreme USB 3 64GB drive just fine with great speeds, however none of my external 2.5″ hard drives are assessable on the tablet. It just doesn’t seem to have the power output in order to fully work an external drive in USB 3.0 mode. If I use the supplied USB 2.0 OTG cab;e, I can access the hard drives, and the docks two USB 2.0 ports work just fine. So not good to see yet again USB 3 port issues on a Cube device.

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Battery life &  Performance:

The iWork10 Ultimate comes with Windows 10 Home and a valid license. Performance is as expected for an Atom Cherry Trail. Navigating around Windows is fast and fluid, running Edge with 5 tabs open, Word and paint can all be done without any issues. As long as its light tasks and light gaming the Z8300 handles it well. You can even play 4k streams via Youtube in Edge with zero dropped frames. But Firefox and Chrome, 4k streaming playback isn’t as smooth, there are noticeable dropped frames resulting in stuttering.

Battery life is decent, nothing amazing but adequate for the type of tablet it is. The battery is a modest 6700mAH in size, which is less than most that offer at least 7200 or 8000mAH cells and depending on what you’re doing will last anywhere from 3-4 hours of gaming up to 6 hours plus web browsing with 25% brightness and the Intel power saving features enabled.

Cube iwork10 Ultimate - Cameras:

Both front and back cameras are 2 Megapixel sensors that offer poor image quality. The are fixed focus units, so you can forget about taking macro shots of text. For Skype use the front camera is okay, but only in good lighting. Your mobile phone will take an image 20 times better than these cameras.
