The Teclast X2 Pro is a premium Windows 10 tablet or Ultrabook and perfect for the business minded or those who wants performance on a thin and light package. The tablet is powered by the latest Intel Core M 5Y10c Dual Core processor which is Ultra quiet, efficient and offers great value for the price.

The X2 Pro packs an ample 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage, and also supports expandable storage via MicroSD support and NGFF storage up to 128 GB SSD (but this option is not included on the package). The tablet also comes with 2 USB Type A (USB 3.0) slots with native support for USB Host OTG. Furthermore, the tablet also supports 4K video output via the Mini HDMI port.

Gaming is decent but it does heats up easily

The ultra quiet design has one obvious flaw, the passive cooled processor heats up easily and is subject to thermal throttling at high loads. The same situation is true with the Macbook 2015 (same processor). The processor wasn’t meant to be a solely gaming processor anyway. In terms of gaming, performance is decent on some games but on highly 3D intensive games, the performance struggles. However, Mainstream games like Dota 2, TF2, COD, Starcraft 2 works great with a few hiccups and lags. Notice that you have to lower the resolution and the details to get playable frame rates. The Intel HD 5300 is powerful enough for discreet gaming.

Active Stylus Support and USB 3.0

The tablet supports active stylus (handwriting recognition) and thus is perfect for designers who can take advantage of this feature. The USB 3.0 (USB Host OTG) support makes ultra fast transfer of files.

Keyboard Magnetic Docks and NGFF Storage Support

Expandable storage supports are supported as well as the luxury for using the Keyboard Magnetic Docks, turning it into a laptop in seconds. Although these features or addons are not included natively on the package.

A huge battery complements powerful hardware underneath

The tablet packs a whopping 45000mWh (120000mAh rated) battery. The battery is listed to lasts up to 8 hours of typical usage but this number depends entirely on the usage preference of the users. Gaming will drain the battery quick, but moderate to light usage, such as spreadsheets, the device will last a while.

A clearly must have Tablet or Ultrabook

Overall, let’s face it, the Teclast X2 Pro isn’t for everybody. For starters, it is pricy compared to other lower end tablets, but you do have performance gain. If you are a frequent traveler, on business or work, then the Teclast X2 Pro i think is a great choice, it offers great performance and runs Windows 10 applications without a hitch, discreet gaming is also possible and the support for Active Stylus makes it a perfect tool for designers.

  1. Hi Vincent I’m student and I’m looking for a nicely priced ultra book/windows tablet. So I was like I have the chrome book options or get a nicely speced Chinese tablet/ultrabook, I already own a mipad so I’m pretty confident in getting another Chinese manufactured product.

    1. Hello Dixon,

      The Teclast X2 Pro would be a perfect fit for you. It uses the new Intel Core M processor which is indeed faster than any Atom processor available. The same used on the Macbook 2015. The tablet is basically a cheaper version of the Macbook.
      You also said, that you are a student, and thus want more efficiency and battery life, rather than power and gaming performance. Furthermore, the Cube i7 Stylus is also a good choice, same processor, cheaper and with stylus.

      Best Regards,

  2. Can you give me a tip where to find the NGFF slot? I cant find the slot in the pictures. And one more question, why can i only use SSDs up to 128gb?

  3. Some retailers in China are selling the dual-boot model – is there a way to activate dual boot on the windows only version?

      1. Thank you Vincent
        In my research, I have learnt that x2 pro comes with a capacitive stylus. According to http://www.howtogeek.com/177376/not-all-tablet-styluses-are-equal-capacitive-wacom-and-bluetooth-explained/ a capacitive stylus does not come with palm rejection feature or any software support and can easily work on any touch screen. The i7 stylus on the other hand comes with a Wacom stylus, which has palm rejection and software support. It is probably why the cue i7 despite its lack of beauty is preferred; what are your thoughts?

        1. Hello Hilary,

          Thank you for the info. Frankly, i don’t really use the Stylus a lot, but i do know that Wacom Stylus is a bit more sensitive and more for productivity. Because a lot of tablets have advertised mostly of Stylus use, but are just Active stylus and not the Wacom type as in the Cube i7 Stylus or the iWork11 Stylus. The X2 pro, X16 Power and X16 Pro both use the Active (256 pressure point) stylus. Also same with the Voyo V1 Ultimate and V3 Vbook.

          Best Regards,

  4. Hi Vincent,
    I need to make a decision whether to buy Teclast X2 Pro or the recently launched Onda OBook 12 (no reviews), available for almost similar price. My requirements are quite basic browsing, office document work, no games.

    1. Hello Vikas,

      the Teclast X98 Plus or the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will do just fine i think for your preference, since you don’t nee much performance, the Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor is enough for your needs.

      Best Regards,
