Alldocube Freer X9 Review – 2.5K Screen on a Budget Tablet

Here is finally my full review of the Alldocube Freer X9, I was so hyped with this tablet, but it does have some faults. The Tablet offers one of the best screens on a budget Tablet and probably that is its best selling feature.

Full Gaming Performance here:

How does it game? Well, basically performance is good but not really similar to its rival, the Teclast T10

Decent Tablet, but I expected more

I expected the Alldocube Freer X9 to beat the more expensive Teclast T10. But sadly, that is not the case. On paper, it is pretty much the Teclast T10 but on a smaller package, but lingering issues and performance inconsistencies heavily affected my impression. I admit, on my unboxing video, I was so excited and impressed with it. But after using it for quite some time, it needs improvement fast. The problem i think is not with the hardware, but I think on the OS or Software side. Performance is sluggish, inconsistent and some issues like the Wifi turning off after a couple of minutes, the tablet shutting down unexpectedly and shoddy GPS performance is very annoying. Gaming is also not that impressive and temps going up at 80°C plus doesn’t sound good either. On the plus side, the screen is amazing, the image quality and contrast levels are spot on, and it comes with USB Type C support with Quick Charging.

Is it a good buy? Well, the hardware is fine, but the OS needs some serious work. And if that is fixed, then you should consider this Tablet..
