Hi guys i got my V a few weeks ago but i didn’t want to review it too early because i wanted to take time to evaluate the investment i made one year ago.
So first i read that some people didn’t get the right keyboard, didn’t got their sleeves, screen broken and i was a little worried but in my case everything went smooth i got all i wanted good from packaging to the V magnetic sleeve and the hdmi adapter and the french keyboard. Everything is good.
It is really good, bright and crisp. The only minor default i got is that the screen is slightly bleeding at the bottom when i start the device. Really no big deal. Just not perfect but i see it only at startup.
The colors are really good too. So for the screen nothing to really complain about. This is an excellent screen.
I really like the alcantara but not really impressed, it is soft. i like the Bluetooth keyboard and the backlit but i see that i rarely use the backlit function. Typing on it is a pleasure.
Definitely not impressed even after installed the last drivers I think this is because on all my devices, i mean my desktop pc and my oneplus 3T i use my JBL flip 3 Bluetooth speaker and the sound is really awesome when i watch a movie or listen to music or podcast.
So the sound of the V for me is juste barely OK. But like i said i never really use the speakers on my devices. MY JBL rule them all.
The weight of the device
I have to admit , it’s a little heavier as i thought it would be especially when i try to take it in one hand in tablet mode. A few minutes and my arm got tired. But when i’m sit i use the kickstand and it’s perfect.
Nothing to complain, it’s fast. Not the fastest device, i have the I5 but fast enough for all my stuff. You know for my usage office work, browsing, media consomption, i just disabled the turbo boost in the bios. So it stays at 1,2 Ghz max speed. And guys i really noticed a boost in battery life. I didn’t count but the device last all day long with no issue when i’m on the go. When you disable the turbo boost, the device is slightly slower but definitely not slow, totally usable i guarantee if you don’t use lots of tasks at the same time. And i like that it’s totally silent.
I didn’t use it yet.
Do i regret buying my V?
Definitely NO. I really like my device. Great performance for my usage, excellent screen, W10 works flawless for the moment. Battery life is good.
The sound is just OK, but i couldn’t care less. Because as i said my bluetooh speaker is the sound for all my devices and it’s awasome
I think Eve should do all they can to deliver faster. i know you’re a startup but this is too long.
The bleeding screen at the bottom and yes it’s a minor issue. I can easily deal with it. But maybe EVE should see this and correct this for the next batch.
Could i recommand the V?
But it’s hard for me to recommand a premium device with not the lastest intel CPU inside at this price but with a lower price for the M3 and it could be a hit for sure.
Guys continue the good work and waiting for the next EVE project
