A tablet that is both Android and Windows ? Yes it is. This is the great advantage of the Teclast X98 Plus II, a new revised version of its predecessor, the X98 Plus . It maintains some characteristics similar to the previous model, among which stands out a 9.7-inch retina screen with a resolution that reaches 2048 x 1536 pixels at 264 ppi with IGZO technology manufactured by LG , and identical to that of the iPad Air. The resolution of the screen offers a great sharpness of color and clarity and in addition, the IPS technology allows wide viewing angles that gives us the possibility of watching games, photos and video editing applications without problems. But if there is something that attracts attention, it is its dual boot, which allows you to choose between Windows 10 or Android 5.1 when starting , even switching between them whenever necessary. Thus, for example, we can take advantage of Windows 10 to work, but turn to Android 5.1 when it comes to finding and using the applications that are easily found in the Google operating system .
As for the engine of this tablet, the processor of the Teclast X98 Plus II is fifth-generation Atom Z8300 X5 quadcore , with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of SSD memory to store content and applications that gives us efficient and consistent performance even using applications such as games or photo editors. And speaking of this, in the case of the graphics chip it does not fall short, since it is supported by an Intel HD graphics Gen8 graphics GPU .
The wireless technology it offers is quite versatile since we have WiFi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI and microSD support . The design has also been significantly improved over the previous model. And it is that the Teclast X98 Plus II has a much more polished, light and smoothly rounded finish with better quality speakers and more ports that are located in the upper area of the tablet.
The 64 GB eMMC ROM storage gives us the necessary space to store all our files such as photos, videos, music or PDF documents, but even so, the Teclast X98 Plus II allows memory expansion through compatible microSD cards of up to 128 GB (not included with the tablet).
Let's move on to the photographic team; in it we find two cameras, a front one and a main one with 2 megapixels each. The front camera supports video calls.

Teclast X98 Plus
The Teclast X98 Plus is the model before the one we presented at the beginning of the article. As we have seen, the characteristics are practically identical in both, although it is true that they vary slightly in design and qualities. The price is also somewhat different, about 170 euros , since we remember that the reason why the Teclast X98 Plus II costs less than 150 euros is because it is on sale for the next few days for half its original price.
If you do not want to spend a lot of your budget and you do not have time to take advantage of the offer of the new model, we recommend that you get this model, since in relation to value for money it has little to envy its successor.
You can find the Teclast X98 Plus in the Gearbest.com store just like the rest.
Teclast X98 Pro
This is perhaps one of the most powerful tablets that we currently find in the technology market. The Teclast X98 Pro has in its guts an Intel Cherry Trail Z8500 Quad Core CPU running at 2.24 GHz . For the graphics section, it takes advantage of an Intel HD Graphics Gen8 GPU , 12EU Gen8LP 600 MHz , more than enough for a concise and optical performance. A 4 GB DUAL CHANNEL RAM that takes advantage of all the speed and a 64 GB external memory distributed between Android and Windows 10 that can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 128 GB .
It also incorporates dual boost (dual boot) that comes standard with Windows 10 and Android 5.1 . Dual boot is very simple, since when you turn on the tablet a window with two icons appears: first one for Android followed by another for Windows . The last one we have used before turning it off will always be preselected by default, and if we do not select another, the tablet will start with it.
In terms of design, this tablet has 9.7 inches and a 4: 3 screen format, perfect for browsing the web and reading books. Although to watch movies the format is somewhat more limited since not being 16: 9 the screen is cut a bit and you cannot see at 100% resolution. The finishes are smooth, light and rounded, very pleasant to the touch and comfortable to handle. The 8000 mAh battery is also a plus, since it can manage current, power and temperature and thereby increase performance dynamically.
You will find it on the Gearbest.com website for about 210 euros and it is available in silver gray. Each of these tablets have a strong point. It is best to examine what your greatest need is when choosing yours.
