Voyo Vbook V3 Pentium N4200 Apollo Lake Laptop – Better than Atom Cherry?
The new Voyo Vbook V3 Apollo seems to be a promising replacement to the Cherry Trail Atom.
What you need to know of the Voyo Vbook V3 Pentium N4200 Apollo (A closer look)
Similar design to the Core M3 version, no changes actually
Pentium N4200 clocks at 2.5GHz, and performance is actually better than Cherry Atom, probably closer to the Core M.
Offers slightly better gaming capabilities compared to Atom, but still below Kaby Lake
Dual Channel 4 GB RAM clocked at 1600MHz
2 sets of Drives: Main Foresee 128 GB SSD and 32 GB Samsung eMMC (for Drivers)
Foresee SSD (similar to the Cube Mix, i7 book and Cube i9)
Fast bootup time, especially with the SSD Drive
13.3 inch IPS 1080p Screen (adequate for indoor use only)
Intel Dual Band Wireless 3165 (similar to the Cube Mix Plus/Cube i7 Book)
USB Ports Work as it should (USB 2.0 and USB 3.0) powers external HDD’s
Dual Stereo Speakers (loud but average audio quality)
The keyboard and build is identical to the Core M3 version (what you see on the Atom version, similar build to this one)
Screen is similar to the Vbook Atom version, brightness levels are a bit dim
Plastic build (keyboard, touchpad, backplate)
Poor keyboard and Touch pad design
Active Stylus is not pressure type, basically a pointer (supports Palm Rejection)
Says that the SSD is user replaceable but offers no easy access to the back panel
A bit pricy, price is close the Kaby Lake Core M3, like the Cube Mix Plus
Honestly, I am not a fan of Voyo but this Apollo Lake version seems promising. Just looking at the performance, it offers better performance compared to Cherry Trail Atom especially on the Windows 10 Platform. But overall as a Laptop, I am not a fan of it. Especially with a Plastic build, the build quality is very questionable and I do worry what will happen to the thermals on full load. Also, it is basically a rehash or reboot of last years Atom and Core M versions. Not really anything unique about it. The Voyo Vbook series are identical in terms of design and build.
