[Keyboard Update, Video added]
Hi folks, since a few days I have the tablet (m3 version) now and to answer the question of the topic immediately yes it was worth it, i got a new keyboard the first one was faulty, now is everything fine again!!!
Display: simply top, bright enough no matter for which of my usage scenarios so far I am very satisfied. no pixel errors, so far no display cracks. thumbs up for the choice! 10/10
Touch screen, pen and input: it always reacts well to my input, no matter if I use a finger or a pen, only the palm reaction is a bit bitchy (I’m not too annoyed by it yet. When drawing I probably recommend to wear artist’s gloves, I don’t have any yet and therefore I try to arrange it first.
Since I have only painted on an SP Pro4 and an acer switch 3 for a short time so far - I can only say I’m fine with it. But I need even more time and practice because it is different than on paper. One of my first attempts on the V
Keyboard and trackpad:[Update 07.05.2018] the new keyboard has arrived well packed and seems to have no defect - phew. hope it stays that way now. Compared to the other one, the trackpad is much more sensitive so that now even lightest touches are enough to trigger a mouse click without pressing the trackpad. which I personally think is very good. i haven’t tested the bluetooth mode yet, but will do so later when the keyboard battery is fully charged. after it felt like it took forever until the eve support answered, i am now very conciliatory again. Thanks to the support!
kind regards pavl
[Update 04.05.2018] Yeah the support answered. They’ll send me a new keyboard. I’m calmed down now! Thanks to the support even if it took longer, hope you get enhancement soon;)
My Keyboard is faulty, when connected to the tablet i got the auto rotation popup you can see in the video. I contacted support, send videos to them but no response since 14 days. I waited to update the topic here to let them a chance to answer. I´m worry about the support. The bluetooth works still fine but i cant use it in laptop mode!
(there is nothing to complain about! Bluetooth capability is not just a nice gimmick no it’s just super useful for my purposes. don’t want to miss it anymore. The keyboard backlight is a nice to have feature for me.) 8/10
Speed: The V replaces an 8-year-old Acer subnotebook. The m3 processor is fast enough for my purposes. It reacts quickly to input, programs start quickly. I paint with it, use it to watch videos, surf the internet (firefox), also with a lot of tabs (20+), maybe I play a bit more but probably no AAA games. For real games I use my desktop. And right now the external graphics docks are just too expensive. 9/10
Battery: Wow the battery lasts a long time, I haven’t run any tests yet but I think I can easily reach 8+ hours. Display mostly at second brightness level wlan always on with Bluetooth keyboard writing, painted several hours, YouTube, watched netflix, meets my expectations. 10/10
Speakers: much better than my old laptop (bad comparison), yes the windows sounds are distorted but only at high volume I find them absolutely fine and more than sufficient for movies and spotify music. But my expectations were not very high, on the one hand because where should bombastically good sound come from and reports through the forums. Our music (I would recommend with good headphones or speakers :-). I haven’t tested the headphone jack yet. 8/10
Design/finishing: on the many photos and videos already an absolutely chic device it is simply even more beautiful in reality, who buys it because of the design does nothing wrong, For finishing there is not much to expose the V feels very valuable to a real hand flatterer.
USB C port and thunderbolt port charge the V reliably. The upper port does not lock like the lower port, but despite moving back and forth, the loading process has not been interrupted. The SD card reader works without problems and recognizes my 64GB sd card from san disk. The kickstand makes a good impression not too loose not too tight.
After two days I noticed two really very small spots on the paint, which I can’t explain. either they were already there or they… no idea where that comes from… it has never been out of the apartment, it has not been touched rudely, but in the whole package it does not stand out. I showed it to my girlfriend and she looked at me stupidly ;D “what’s your problem?” 9/10
Accessories: charger with cable eu plug and two plugs for the rest of the world. And the already much discussed display foil (I haven’t tried it yet). Unfortunately the Magnetic sleeve was still missing in the package -so far no answer from support! For this I have 3 pen tips, which I could use a sticker- everyone loves sticker- and a bag without handle and strap- thanks eve but what should I use it for? 7/10
Question: Hey Pavl would you buy it again?
Answer: Yes I would do that .
Preliminary result: 8/10
