Kiano Intelect X2 HD is a tablet with a keyboard, capacious hard drive and 4 GB of RAM. Was it better version Kiano Intelect X1 FHD?
This year Kiano gained momentum and introduced as many as two hybrid devices. Shortly after I wrote the test Kiano Intelect X1 FHD, the network appeared the information that the manufacturer has unveiled the second generation of the tablet bearing the name Kiano Intelect X2 HD. Although it might seem that the models do not differ with respect to each other anything special, it is just an illusion.
Housing and design unchanged
Components enclosed in a housing made of a metal alloy (in the back), and glass (cover screen). The whole weighs over half a kilogram, like its predecessor. Also, a set of connectors is similar – with one exception: port microUSB 3.0 commuted to USB C. In addition, we have microUSB 2.0, video output in the form of connectors, micro-HDMI, microSD memory card reader, audio connector (headphone and microphone), microphone and loudspeakers arranged on the left and right side of the housing. Separation of the speakers is the second change in the design of the tablet.Additional USB ports standard size can be found on the dock, which has the same keyboard layout as accessory Intelect X1 FHD. The keyboard is not great, so for owners of larger hands typing a long text can be tedious. Jump keys is hard and the plate – not here I note any changes. Unchanged is also a set of buttons, where we find the row of function keys used for rapid control of the operating system. The manufacturer did not change either the size of the keys. Changes we not recorded also on the trackpad. It has the same size, so like the X1, so here works best when navigating the operating system and scroll web pages (service is multigestów). In the long term, however, it is better to rely on the mouse. However, this is more a question of the size of the plate than the coverage or sensitivity – both aspects put the item in a good light. Tablet plugs into the dock using magnets that strongly bind the structure. No problem so we can use Kiano Intelect X2 HD mode, your computer, tablet, stand for watching movies or "tent". Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not improved the tilt angle of the screen to the rear, so the width of the regulation still does not allow comfortable working during the trip. In more conventional terms tablet works perfectly. Previous series device Intelect presented a high level of performance, so the Polish company did not have in this respect nothing to improve. The machine is solidly constructed. Nothing creaks, and all components are a good fit. Minor changes have size, but still set after submitting weighs about 1.2 kg (594 g tablet, stand 549 g).
The first major difference – the screen
Although both series models Intelect have a screen size of 10.1 ", the only Kiano Intelect X1 is a variant with a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels and 1280 x 800 pixels. The second parameter is the standard for Kiano Intelect X2 HD. Perhaps in the near future there will be a variant of the screen Full HD, but for now you have to settle for the resolution of HD.the number of pixels per one inch display is smaller in comparison to what has Intelect X1 FHD. it is known that this results in less clarity content is displayed, but still there are no obstacles to work comfortably on the two windows juxtaposed – the browser. it seems to me therefore that the manufacturer used the same matrix, which can be found in Kiano Intelect X1 HD – is a matrix of IPS, so viewing angles are wide. the panel is distinguished by a good calibration. it also offers 68% coverage for a range of sRGB and 50% for Adobe RGB (average value, but rewarding). much worse in relation to the original falls brightness of the screen that does not exceed 255 cd / m2, while the backlight X1 has a brightness of up to 356 cd / m2. Both tablets were fitted with a similarly strong light reflecting film and therefore it Intelect X1 FHD better check for outdoor conditions. [Test slug = "display-battery" order = "desc" selected = "21668" type = "single" virtual = "TEST_JASNOSC_AKU" product_id = "21474,21306,21308,21460,21172,21326,21668,21634"] How can be seen in the table above, Kiano Intelect X2 HD has the weakest illumination of the tablet hybrid that previously tested. Again leads the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Windows, right behind him ranks advanced tablet Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It is a pity that just tested model falls in this context, worse than its technology enablers cousin, including hybrid Kruger & Matz Edge 1084 because it is for them a strong competitor in other comparisons.
Performance – X2 better than the X1
Performance Kiano Intelect X2 HD is based on the chip Intel Atom x5-Z8300, which is the same unit that meet both Intel X1 and tablet Kruger & Matz Edge 1084. With the exception that the manufacturer extends the working memory up to 4 GB (bone DDR3 ), so we get a much better facilities for multitasking. Same processor has four cores switched-mode speed of 1.4 GHz, in addition to the board is the Intel HD graphics. Expanded RAM is not the only feature that Intelect X2 HD dominates the Intelect X1. We get twice as capacious disk storage capacity of 64 GB. Test performance media pointed at the speed of 49 MB / s, so the sheer speed indicates that there is a type of memory eMMC (ID indicates a model Hynix HCG8e).capacious RAM and a large hard disk allows stable operation of Windows 10 Home and assembly of more programs and files, but do not let too high expectations. Kiano Intelect X2 HD continues to be specific devices basic operations, such as. Surfing the Internet. Nevertheless, even in such tasks system happens to think longer, and switching between multiple applications processor is sometimes confusing. It's just not surprising, because the processor family Intel Atom originally designed for the most basic applications. As you might guess, outside the office suite and selected programs we fail to take full advantage of the operating system. But we can confidently expect a wide compatibility with programs and games that can be found in the shop Windows. Successfully we recreate the majority of films, including video 4K (4096×1716, h264, aac, 35Mbps) or odpalimy game dedicated to tablets.

Still the most efficient in this statement is the Kruger & Matz Edge 1161, which is based on the processor family Intel Core M. It offers a low-voltage processor performance allows operation in more demanding applications. Other models have a system for family Intel Atom, so here the performance differences are negligible. A similar distribution of forces is presented in graphics performance, where Kiano Intelect X2 HD almost nothing not differ from its predecessor and wins notes relevant to the equipment. This is confirmed by the results of other models also based systems with the Intel Atom family.

When set to the native resolution system generates 18 FPS at low graphics settings and 14 FPS at high. In short: the titles desktop can play, but rewarding gameplay no way.
Mounted system does not require active cooling, so Kiano Intelect X2 HD runs silently. It does not generate at the same time too much heat. Under heavy load, the cabinet temperature reaches 36 deg. C, which basically coincides with the results of what I wrote down during a test Intelect X1.
Battery worse than the X1
Kiano Intelect X2 received HD battery with a capacity of 6500 mAh 1000 mAh or less compared to Intelect X1. This is reflected in the length of the operation of the tablet without connecting to the charger. Of course, it is still well – you can still count on about 5 hours of constant surfing the internet via Wi-Fi or watching movies in flight mode. With more hard work, the battery should insist on charging after a period of not less than 3-4 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 X2 allow for about 4-5 hours of operation. [Wptab style = "4" title = "PCMark Work"] [test slug = "battery" virtual = "pcmark8-work-battery" order = "desc" selected = "21668" type = "single" product_id = "21460, 21306,21308,21668,21634 "] [/ wptab] [wptab style =" 4 "title =" PCMark Creative "] [test slug =" battery "virtual =" pcmark8-creative-battery "order =" desc "selected = "21668" type = "single" product_id = "21460,21306,21308,21668,21634"] [/ wptab] [wptab style = "4" title = "PCMark Home"] [test slug = "battery" virtual = " pcmark8-home-battery "order =" desc "selected =" 21668 "type =" single "product_id =" 21460,21306,21308,21668,21634 "] [/ wptab] [wptab_end] As can be seen, the battery mounted in Kiano Intelect X2 is weaker than the links that we find among his closest competitors technologically. Among the models mentioned most falls CHUWI HiBook offering two operating systems and is based on the same processor as Kiano Intelect X1 and X2.
The speakers, connectivity, memory and camera
As I mentioned earlier, Kiano Intelect X2 HD has stereo speakers located on one thing: the left and right side. Stereofoniczności impression is thus preserved, but the same sound quality is average. Just like the X1, so here the audio quality of this model does not really stand out from the crowd. Treble clearly outweigh the low, and the volume does not exceed 81 dB.The equipment also includes the Wi-Fi compliant STANDARDS 802.11 b / g / n working in a range (2.4 GHz). In most cases, it offers a stable and a good connection. Also, in a situation when the tablet is on a different floor than the router access it is still possible, as in Kiano Intelect X1. The list of modules complements Bluetooth 4.0 [test slug = "wifi-tablet" axis = "minus" product_id = "21,460.21668"] will not find in a tablet built-in modem, but we can make up the lack of an external modem. Any, is simply plugged into the USB port (OTG) available in the dock, like other computer peripherals – drive, mouse or HUB. There is also the problem of throwing an image on an external display using a wireless network. The tablet has a microSD card slot. While we do not recognize the media with a capacity of 64 GB, but surprisingly easily detected the Kingston 128 GB Ultra microSDXC Class10 UHS-1 . The tablet also has two cameras with a resolution of 2 megapixels. Both offer image recording with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels 30 fps. Quality is, however, the average – the picture is ugly, noisy and devoid of natural colors.
Summary opinion, evaluation
Which is better: Intelect Intelect X1 or X2?
Kiano Intelect X2 HD has its indisputable advantages: greater than its predecessor disk with a capacity of 64 GB and more RAM. These parameters allow you to better see the model which was tested in most tasks. Roomier RAM translates primarily on slightly better refinement of the system, and in addition we have more space to store the fruits of our labor. In this respect Kiano Intelect X2 HD exceeds Kiano Intelect X1 FHD.On the other hand, the technical characteristics of the screen to prompt me favoring model X1 FHD in which the majority is not only the resolution but also the maximum brightness of the backlight. These parameters allow for a more comfortable use of the tablet. After gaining on the clarity and readability, both parameters important from a practical point of view. Both models have been but just as richly equipped with additional ports – the X1 find a microUSB 3.0 port, in X2 but it was replaced by USB type C. In both, we also have video output and stereo speakers, although it tested model lived to better their deployment. Which so choose? internet surfers and e-bookowym moths recommend Kiano Intelect X1 FHD, the others let him reach for Intelect X2 HD. 😉 [Temperatura2 product_id = "21668"]
