Kiano Intelect X1 FHD is a combination of a small laptop with a tablet. How he performs in practice? I already checked.
Until recently, the unit series Intelect I associated mainly with the two tablets based on Android – Kiano Intelect 8 and 10. These very nice device already lived to see the cousins based on Windows – Kiano Intelect 8 3G MS and Kiano Intelect 8.9 3G MS – and now We offer Polish company, a new model: Kiano Intelect X1 FHD.
Housing and workmanship
Newer model stands have the same look. Components Kiano Intelect X1 FHD were closed in the case of aluminum and plastic, the same producer resigned from the glass panels for specific models of the previous generation. The device does not differ with the size of a conventional tablet, but has in store something else some time ago would reject with disapproval – a docking station with keyboard and trackpad, and, as befits a hybrid device, touch pen. After plugging the tablet with a 10.1-inch screen in the base of the keyboard is the only one association – the ever popular netbooks. If, however, assemble together Kiano Intelect X1 FHD and Transformer Book Flip TP200SA quickly find that this model ASUS has zgrabniejsze construction. Usually I carry equipment in a backpack, so it does not matter to me so much meaning, but I noticed that when you connect the tablet with a keyboard Kiano get quite corpulent set, the importance of which reaches up to 1.2 kg (tablet weighs about 600 grams, almost a second keyboard enough), and the thickness of the set is well .. substantial. Kiano course, we are not condemned to permanent use of the keyboard, because both components are easy to disconnect, so in everyday use could quickly and easily customize the device to their needs. When I wanted to focus on multimedia, I used the same tablet without the dock. It happened, however, that I needed to work during the trip and then the keyboard proved to be a very useful addition. The mechanism that combines elements of both elements is based on the use of hooks and sturdy – unfortunately, does not allow for a wide adjustment of the angle of deflection of the screen. Under normal circumstances, when the machine lay on the desk, I did not complain to the comfort of writing – by far the worse I worked while on the road, even riding the bus, the tablet based on your lap or backpack. Of course, we are talking about a situation where Kiano Intelect X1 FHD zastępowało me an ordinary computer, because in other applications allows for greater freedom of use. Just as in business hybrid Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2, so here we can plug the screen in two ways, so that the docking station can act as a stand with keyboard set behind the device, and the deposit system, we can set it up in the shape of the tent. The docking station has two USB 2.0 standard sizes, and the tablet receives two additional microUSB ports – one from versions 2.0 and 3.0. Such a set can be called complete, because each port supports OTG accessories and their location makes it convenient to connect a mouse, hard drive and other peripherals. On the same side of the tablet, where he placed USB ports, is still out micro-HDMI and microSD card slot. I do not mind such a large concentration of elements on one side of the device, but a pity that the manufacturer has decided to put the two satellite speakers on the right side. If it was decided to separate them, there would be virtually nothing to find fault.
Keyboard, trackpad and touch pen
Due to the fact that the same tablet has a screen of 10.1 ", adapted to his size keyboard does not offer too large workspace. The manufacturer fits all keys, including functional serving for easier use Windows, but they are small. You have to do this getting used to – I after a while I came to the conclusion that the keyboard good use.I expect, of course, that the compact size of the keyboard can cause the problem to the holders of larger hands, and tile and hard key strokes may put some people to write longer texts on X1 FHD. Sam would have done what is true of the tablet, my primary work tool, but I wrote to him a few articles and I think that tested equipment makes it ideal as a supplement to regular laptop or PC. by the end of the tests was looking for a wry eye on the trackpad – to me it is a little too small. This is obviously a very subjective opinion. After the test hybrid Lenovo IdeaPad MIIX 700 should not end up complaining about the current plate next to the keyboard Kiano Intelect X1, because they do not differ so radically in terms of dimensions. In the case Intelect However, the trackpad gave the impression strongly similar to current solutions in tablet hybrid Kruger & Matz Edge 1160/1161 – so not the best. It is too narrow, it is one thing, but when using it happened that, do not know why, Windows minimized window to the taskbar. This was usually when you move your finger down the plate. In general, however trackpad check well and if he was bigger, I would not reach for the mouse. The finger glided smoothly after him, and a separate area to replace the left and right mouse button have a nice click. Attached to the sent test kit touch pen is the fourth of this type of accessory, which tested so far. Previously, I had contact with the Surface the pen, stylus included with the Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2 and Lenovo ideapad MIIX 700. I can confidently say that feather Kiano has a very good weight, so good to work with, but his tip cries out for vengeance to the (technological) sky. It is very hard, so I was afraid that the handwriting texts scratch the screen and just touching links or drawing, nothing like experience, which left a previous three feathers. The manufacturer took care of two physical buttons, similar to the mouse buttons, but somehow did not encourage me, especially for prolonged use accessory.
To interact with the device can naturally also use your own finger because Kiano Intelect X1 has a 10.1-inch touch screen. It is a matrix of IPS, so does a good job of reproducing the nice-looking picture, and offers wide viewing angles. The used color profile does not require a large adjustment, so right out of the box, you can harness device for work or play.I tested the model with a screen Full HD, although in reality the resolution is slightly higher, at 1920 by 1200 pixels, which allows you to keep a high density of pixels with a ratio of applied matrix. Screen enough in my daily work, but admit that it is mainly narrowed it to compose texts and browsing the internet or watching movies. Multitasking, by which so always sought and which I missed on all models with Android, is possible, but the 10-inch display gives the area where we could comfortably assemble together two application windows. So it is better to jump between programs, instead of trying to cram both. I like the fact that Kiano clearly benefiting from the knowledge gained in the distribution of earlier models and took care of strong backlight, coming here to 356 cd / m2. The coating is admittedly glossy, so if we wanted to take your computer to work outdoors, strong sun could to some extent make it difficult to work, but at home I had absolutely no problems with the readability of the screen.
Kiano Intelect X1 takes its nickname from the air – owes him installed as inside the arrangement. This is the Intel Atom x5-Z8300, which debuted in early 2015; unit with 4-core processor with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz growing in Burst mode to 1.84 GHz. We also have 2 GB of RAM (DDR3 1600MHz) and Intel HD graphics. Kit does not impress performance – installed Windows 10 Home run rather sluggishly, especially measured with the more demanding applications. Fortunately, web browser (by me) to work as smoothly, so while surfing the Internet frustration you not in danger. I could also safely play all popular video file formats and 4K movies. I'm not a big fan of tablets with Windows 10 based on Atom, because usually they have limited options. Launch desktop applications, but not all – of the program for processing photos or making videos can be forget. Much better is doing here Intel Core M, as exemplified by the results obtained in PC Mark by (naturally more expensive) Kruger & Matz Edge 1161 having the system is from this family. [Test slug = "pcmark8-windows" product_id = "21460,21172,21306,21308"] As you can see, only the Edge in 1161 stands out with this statement, leaving behind the other models. All of them, including the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows and Kruger & Matz Edge 1160 were based on processors from Intel Atom family that despite the differences in the specifications, give comparable results in the above test. This shows that all three represent a similar work culture and comparable opportunities. The new unit present in the X1 FHD gaining an advantage over other Intelami in tests measuring the graphics performance, but there's no chance of an Intel Core M, which is mounted on the Edge 1161. Of course, this model is more expensive than Intelect respectively, but paying another thousand gold we gain wider compatibility with games.

With applications available in the store windows is no problem. Worse, if someone comes to mind to start the title written on the desktop – then for smooth gameplay we can expect generally only provided that much will lower texture quality and we reduce the resolution at which you will be running the game. But even with such restrictions must reckon with the fact that the liquidity example. Diablo 3 will fluctuate in the vicinity of up to 9 fps (resolution of 1280 by 768 pixels, low detail), which is comparable to that which represents the Kruger & Matz Edge 1160. on the other hand, turning a blind eye to decreases in liquidity example you play. Deus Ex: Human Revolution (about 18 fps. at low settings in HD).
Operating temperature and noise
Intel Atom is a very good choice for people who want to quietly working device. Kiano Intelect X1 has no active cooling, so it works silently, and during the long, hard work very well cope with the accumulated heat. [Temperatura_obudowa product_id = "21460"] I gave the device 3-hour test angażującemu all components of the tablet and the maximum temperature, which I registered was 36 degrees Celsius. For most of the area, however, the case remained only slightly warm.
The tablet has a battery capacity of 7500 mAh, which in conjunction with the current on-board processor Intel gives good mileage on a single charge. In our daily work I could count on about 8 hours of operation, unless it involved a device for more demanding tasks. Writing text with Wi-Fi off it for X1 FHD breeze, but playback can shorten the life of the tablet to approx. 4-5 hours. In the PC Mark test, which simulate different scenarios for the use of the tablet: Creative (photo processing, etc.), Work (spreadsheets, video calls) and mixed-mode, Intelect X1 allow for about 5-6 hours of operation. [Wptab style = "4" title = "PCMark Creative"] [test slug = "battery" virtual = "pcmark8-creative-battery" order = "desc" selected = "21460" type = "single" product_id = "21460, 21,306.21308 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" PCMark Home "] [test slug =" battery "virtual =" pcmark8-home-battery "order =" desc "selected =" 21460 "type = "single" product_id = "21460,21306,21308"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "PCMark Work"] [test slug = "battery" virtual = "pcmark8-work-battery" order = "desc" selected = "21460" type = "single" product_id = "21460,21306,21308"] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] again, pick yourself as a point of reference models, which compared the performance of the hardware section. Here, as you can see, Intelect X1 gives comparable notes (and even performs better) in the Kruger & Matz Edge 1160 or 1161.
The speakers, connectivity, memory and camera
The manufacturer equips the tablet with two speakers, which as I mentioned at the beginning, placed on the right side of the tablet. For this reason, there is a sense of stereo sound when listening to music, and even the same quality sound terribly distinguished tablet from the crowd. Bass are only slightly marked, and the sound seems to be slightly flattened. Its intensity reaches 82 dB. You could not miss the Wi-Fi module, in this case working in the field of one-compliant 802.1 b / g / n. The stability of the network connection is satisfactory. Even in the case where the tablet is on the other floors of the router, Internet access should continue to be provided. In the list of communication modules can also find Bluetooth 4.0. [Test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "21460"] Kiano Intelect X1 FHD does not have a built-in modem, we can fix strapping external USB modem. There is a problem with the "throwing" the image on the external screen using Miracast. In the tested model, we find the disk is built with a capacity of 32 GB, which effectively limits the ability to install programs and applications. Just place a basic set of applications – for me it is Spotify, Chrome, MS Office and two small educational programs, but in order to take advantage of the games had resorted to the memory card. Well then, we'll find the appropriate slot, which supports cards with capacity. up to 128 GB (checked for editorial Kingstonie 128 GB Ultra microSDXC Class10 UHS-1 ). The tablet also has two cameras, both with a resolution of 2 megapixels, whose capacity is limited to video recording with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels 30 fps liquidity. In both cases, the image quality is average, but the front equipment should be enough to talk on Skype.
Summary, evaluation, review
I really like the direction that follows the manufacturer together with Kiano Intelect X1 FHD, mainly due to the thoughtful design of the casing which gives the ability to adjust the nature of the appliance to the user's needs. I use the tablet holding his hands, use the keypad as the stand or change the tablet in a small computer. Well it works applied matrix IPS and extensive facilities – a large number of USB ports, including micro USB 3.0 and video output. Kiano Intelect X1 FHD certainly ahead of its cousins based on Android, because it will offer more possibilities, but personally I'm a little disappointed with performance of this particular model. I expected that the newer Intel Atom system will offer a better work culture, while still lacking a lot of competing solutions based on the units of the family Intel Core M. Maybe it's time for just such equipment, expensive Kiano?[temperatura2 product_id = "21460" ] [inne_propozycje product_id = "21460"]
