Tablet PC used to be the perfect enjoyment for many people for mobile office and large screen audio and video entertainment center. Compared to cell phones, it has a larger display area and keys and mice with, compared to computers, it is thin and portable can also be a long battery life. In the ideal state, whether it is light office or play games, the tablet is a tool. But the fact is, the tablet computer is in an awkward position, with a simple phrase to summarize is to buy before productivity, buy after the Aiki, and even finally used to cover the bubble noodles.
The reason for this is because the ecology of tablets has not kept up, especially on the non-iPad side, which is why there are tablets divided into iPad and other this statement. Like the previous Android tablet is a simple cell phone APP amplification, and Win board is more outrageous, touch or keypad ideas mostly, basically does not exist to say what a good experience. So in previous years, the whole Android tablet industry almost cold so that everyone thought that is the sunset industry.
In the past two years, many friendly business and restarted or began to build a tablet based on the idea of interconnection or interoperability to come, more in order to open the link with the phone, between the computer and the phone to build a portable mobile device. This two years mainstream cell phone manufacturers have basically launched a tablet, vivo also claimed that their own tablet over two years, so let's take a look at vivo Pad - as vivo's first tablet product performance in the end how it?
Full metal body, extremely thin and light
First of all, we open this tablet, feel the texture of the body is very attractive to me, because it is a full metal body, and there is no antenna break in the bezel, instead and the back cover is the same piece of metal material used. At first I thought the back cover might be painted with a metal-like coating or a breakthrough in the process. But what I really didn't expect was that the Vivo Pad's body is an integrated all-metal, built from a single piece of aircraft aluminum, so the back cover and frame are all metal, and because it's a single piece of metal, so theoretically the whole machine's sturdiness and protection is better than non-integral products.
But junior high school physics tells us that the full metal wrapped under the will form a similar Faraday cage-like shielding effect, then the internal antenna will not be able to accept the signal, the flat panel can not be networked, not become a brick well.
So we see that even with a metal frame or metal body products, will open some slots in the metal part, and then use the injection molding process to fill these locations with plastic, these locations are for signal overflow and reception. But Vivo design resonant cavity, through the resonance of the cavity to send and receive signals, I have to say that more than my current understanding of the scope, I can only say that the technology is increasingly high-end.
Not only is the body process high-end, but even with a large 11-inch screen, the whole machine only weighs 489g and is 6.55mm thick.
On the weight, it only weighs more than ten grams than two iPhone 13 Pro Max, on the thin and light to beat a host of cell phones, of course, this comparison is a bit of a win, but the weight of friendly tablet have more than a pound of weight, which can also be seen vivo's design and stacking level, right?
A slight regret is that this power button does not support the fingerprint function, but you can achieve facial unlock through the front camera, I wonder how many of you will care about the fingerprint function?
The rear has a camera module similar to the Vivo X Note, with two built-in cameras, but the camera specifications are the general level of the tablet, 13 million main camera and 8 million ultra-wide angle, the front an 8-megapixel camera, of course, according to the standard of the tablet shooting, no one should take pictures of the tablet.
Configuration pull full, entertainment comfort
This year's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 performance, so we have to shout again 870 God U, if a product manager in a number of SoC tangled, then let him tangled one of them must be Snapdragon 870. 7nm process, mature A77 core and to this day are still good energy efficiency ratio performance, so 870 can continue to extend life, some brands even formed 870-888-8 Gen 1 three generations of the same situation. There is also 8G of LPDDR4X memory and UFS3.1 flash memory, both of which are not outdated configurations.
On the screen is a 2.5K resolution 11-inch LCD screen that supports 120Hz. The screen ratio is 16 to 10, 10bit color depth, supports P3 wide color gamut, HDR10 and Dolby Vision. There is also adaptive color temperature adjustment. This screen is very good in the current flat panel view, although it is LCD screen, but the display effect is not bad, and LCD screen pixel arrangement without loss, so even if the screen PPI is only 276, but the display of the fine degree is not and poor.
Many people feel that the tablet is an enlarged cell phone, because most of the functions that can be achieved on the tablet can be achieved on the phone, brush microblogging, headlines, Jitterbug, B station, the phone can also be brushed.
But the large screen is precisely the advantage of the tablet, although the 7-inch X Note screen is already large, when I put a screen displayed on a 7-inch phone, put on an 11-inch screen, the visual impact is really different.
The vivo Pad is equipped with four-channel linear super-speakers, which can achieve 0.7mm amplitude, the tablet is not to be used to catch up on drama and watch online classes, the sound must be good. The vivo Pad is also equipped with Dolby Atmos, with the adaptation of the mainstream video platform, the overall audio and video experience has been qualitatively improved, anyway, I do not want to use the phone after using the tablet.
There is also Vivo equipped with Atomic Screening Room, which is able to pick up the movies you are catching up on and haven't finished watching directly from your phone and continue playing them. Imagine catching up with a drama on your phone on the subway, and then opening the tablet immediately after you get home to enjoy the big screen viewing experience.
The benefits of a large screen not only audio and video experience, there are also natural advantages in the game, but the premise is that its performance should be strong enough, because if the performance is not strong enough, the game dropped frames and lagging feeling in the large screen will be more uncomfortable to watch.
The Vivo Pad is equipped with Snapdragon 870, which comes standard with 8G of memory, and incorporates a double-layer quartz ink heat sink, which is stacked with such fierce heat dissipation, but not Snapdragon 888 or 8 Gen 1. In fact, the Snapdragon 870's performance is fully sufficient to play mainstream large games, testing the glory of kings at 120 fps, easily run full.
And flat large screen game, the field of view also has the advantage of eating chicken is a cheating tool, the natural is to see more than others in a row, easier to find the enemy upstairs.
Although the original God's load may be a little larger, but it is not impossible to play, but the 870 limit performance is limited, it is recommended to drop the picture quality to ensure that the frame rate is better, the original God drop the picture quality, but also very smooth operation.
High degree of system ecological completion, mainstream applications are adapted
Android tablet ecology has always been a place of criticism, but also the need for tablet manufacturers and application developers need to work together to solve the problem, not only the tablet to adapt a part of the developer needs to unify the development specifications, and may even need to redo part of the application interface and operating logic according to the needs of the tablet.
So this time the system performance and application adaptation of the Vivo Pad's completion will determine whether this product is worth buying, whether it can be bought to be productive, or whether it is just a large phone or video player that can't make calls.
As Vivo's first tablet, we must be very concerned about the completion of the system. Vivo Pad is equipped with OriginOS HD, which is a custom OriginOS system for tablets, the settings interface, status bar, system UI style are as beautiful as the cell phone side, the operation logic is also similar, we feel the smoothness of this, the system transitional animation is very well handled.
First of all, let's take a look at the adaptation of APP, corresponding to the mainstream APP, basically all adapted to landscape applications, such as QQ, WeChat, graphite documents, WPS, and Youaiteng these video software.
Of course there is really no adaptation, we can deal with it through parallel vision. At present, it seems that the application adaptation of Vivo Pad is considered the first echelon among the newest tablet manufacturers.
However, I found that Weibo is not adapted, it seems that usually Vivo's designers don't play Weibo much. The first tablet to have such a good level of adaptation, I think Vivo has indeed done a lot of preparation.
The system UI transitions animation and so on are handled pretty well, like the mouse sliding over the top of the APP there is a magnetic effect, the details have a heart.
The application adaptation of the tablet is only one aspect, there is more important is to reach productivity, can be in the multi-device in a convenient and fast and accurate data flow, editing, as well as the content in the multi-platform creation and finishing ability.
First of all, it is worthwhile to learn the function of a touch of interconnection and a touch of transmission function, this function has been developed by friends, I think there should be no technical bottleneck, Vivo can be on, other friends should also be able to be on. But there are still some friends in front of the homework do not know to copy, I hope that the future friends also follow up as soon as possible.
The whole projection experience is very good, because there is physical contact, the link is more directional, especially in the case of multiple devices, such physical contact can achieve the effect of accurate projection and reduce the rate of misuse.
Double your productivity with the Office Suite
There's also a matching keyboard and pen that are part of the tablet's productivity. The Vivo Pad's keyboard holster is also supported a bit differently, requiring a flip to wrap around the upper part of the tablet and fold it down to allow the tablet to stand up, unlike those structures that fold from the lower part of the tablet, while also bringing a multi-angle folding effect.
I was able to adjust the angle of the tablet by adjusting the folding angle, while the fixed angle of Friends is really not friendly in some scenarios.
The touch of the keyboard is not bad, and there is a touchpad comparable to a small notebook, the touchpad is frosted material is very smooth, point and click under the Q-tip, sliding when the desktop cursor appears, in the text state back into the word, and the desktop side of the logic is basically the same.
Two-finger swipe up and down information flow is very silky smooth, pinch to zoom in and out photos, turn pages left and right, three-finger tap to go back, swipe up to go back to the desktop, swipe up to stop multitasking, etc.
Tablet of course still need to have a pen, the official pen texture is not bad, support 4096 levels of pressure-sensitive, can be directly adsorbed in the tablet, suction is okay, not easy to fall off.
But the stylus is a dry battery, which I think is a rare case, but the alternative is very strong, the convenience store to buy it can be replaced, in the official introduction, a battery can be used for a full year in the case of 2 hours a day use.
In order to better adapt the pen and improve productivity attributes, Vivo has also customized a Progeny Notes App, which not only opens various documents, tables, and PPTs, but also allows for handwritten notes and voice notes.
When the screen is off, the stylus will immediately enter the atomic notes by tapping on the screen, you can write as you go, and also automatically recognize the standard text after writing and delete it with a single stroke, and you can also do text layout according to the effect package that comes with it.
Super battery life is very top, out of the office all day
vivo Pad with a large 8040 mAh battery and 44W fast charging, indeed, the battery is too large, the test is not difficult, but this battery size, indeed, do not worry too much about the battery life, the official statement is 15 hours of continuous mobile office or 11 hours of continuous drama, my own experience down, out of the office to type a day no problem at all, normally can cope with about 3 days of it.
44W fast charging is not fast, but can fill up the tablet in an hour and a half time, but also to ensure a quick return, it is considered very adequate. When you go out even take a rechargeable battery can charge it, which is much more convenient than a laptop.
When out of office typing, we can also adjust a small window to brush the video, so that when editing copy is not so boring. As for cutting video, there is no professional editing software like PS and PR for Android ecology, but the mainstream editing software, dealing with some simple pictures and videos is completely enough.
The vivo Pad, as vivo's tentative work in the tablet world, firstly has a good performance in terms of system UI, hardware and software adaptation, and productivity, whether you want audio and video entertainment or proper production, it can meet to some extent. At the same time, the configuration of the material also spare material, with new technology, the whole machine texture and finish are very good.
But I do not recommend that we do not brain on the tablet products, because although the tablet products are feature-rich but not irreplaceable, and need to correspond to their own work or life needs, like some can only run on a specific system software or specify the platform are issues to consider.
At present, I recommend the tablet on the crowd of students, especially the study party, and like the drama party and so on, professional users recommended hands-on experience before deciding, of course, manufacturers will continue to optimize all aspects of the tablet experience at a later stage, the adaptation of professional users is certainly better.
