Congratulations and thank you! You are now an official supporter of Eve and the eve.community. This Quick Start Guide will help you get your Eve V up and running in no time!
Here are a few things about the Eve V that we thought you might be curious about …
What matters more, technical specs or perception? Both! We designed the Eve V. to appear to be the thinnest tablet on the market, however we actually increased the thickness to provide greater battery capacity, giving our customers what they really want, better specs.
No one wants to be a walking billboard. Our customers love beautiful tech devices, not corporate gimmicks. We chose to limit branding to a small discrete logo on the back of the kickstand. It’s become our community’s discrete badge of honor and rally-call, the pyramid flipper.
Balance matters. When objects align we feel the harmony. When it comes to great design, it’s all about maintaining perfection in the details. The USB A ports mirror one another on each side as well as the length for the ports and buttons on either side. The buttons are also the same width as the USB A, creating continuous lines of alignment.
There is something captivating about a smooth slate of glass, you can lose yourself in the sea of blackness. We wanted to capture that feeling in our tablet and that’s why we have strived to make the bezel and display as indistinguishable as possible. We took it a step further and removed all logos and home keys from the front display, leaving it beautifully uninterrupted.
Rooted in functionality.
First and foremost, we kept the USB A ports because our community needed them. This drove a lot of design decisions. The fingerprint reader is also the on/off button making it more convenient for user to seamlessly use their devices. The volume button rocker placed between the USB A and power button is wide and comfortable to use.
In the box you will find the Eve V and keyboard, the touch pen, wall power adapter, and charging cable.
Before you start. You need to know about ports and buttons on the Eve V, then we will go through some important functionality of the keyboard.
Let’s get started!
We know you can’t wait to get start testing the Eve V out and you are almost there!
When developing the Eve V, our primary focus was on a better user experience. You should be able to start your Eve V in a matter of seconds, anytime, anywhere. All you have to do is to press the power button on the side of the Eve V and follow the Windows start-up guide. You will be asked to fill in some basic info and sync with your previous Microsoft account, if you already have one. Remember, you can start your device for the first time with or without keyboard connected; it’s a 2-in-1 after all.
The Eve V contains 0% bloatware so the whole set-up process should take as much time as it takes to get a coffee, tea, or whatever.
Step-by-step startup guide:
- Power on the device by pressing the power button
- Follow the instructions Windows provides you
- You are all set.
If the Eve V doesn’t start
Connect your Eve V to the charger using either of the USB C ports. Wait a while and try again.
We check every device that leaves the factory floor at least twice! We might have messed up…or maybe the shipping company did. If you are not persuaded, check this video out: http://bit.ly/2kACzvW
If that doesn’t work
Frustrated? If nothing seems to help, feel free to swear at the device! It will help you feel better. Please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer and take care of everything promptly.
Thanks to eve.community member mulenga for ideas on phrasing this support section.
How to use your Eve V Bluetooth keyboard
Good news! The Eve V’s keyboard can be connected in 2 ways: using Bluetooth or Pogo pin connector port in the device:
To pair the V Wireless Keyboard with Eve V, or another bluetooth device:
- Make sure Eve V has bluetooth on
- Press the bluetooth / F12 key on the top row of the V Wireless Keyboard.
- Wait until you see the “V Wireless Keyboard” in the available bluetooth devices on your Eve V
- Click Pair and wait for pairing to be complete.
Google, Bing and other search Engines… Are your big friends. Use them wisely.
You can always ask your question in our amazing eve.community Some hacks from eve.community
Giving up privacy sucks! So to limit diagnostic reports sent to Microsoft…
In Settings > Privacy, scroll down to Feedback & diagnostics. Then under Diagnostic and usage data, select Basic. This doesn’t fully turn off the feature, but with this option, your device will only send limited health and performance feedback to Microsoft.
I just got the Eve V, the device is really hot It’s Normal due to the massive number of updates and indexing, should go away when all is done.
My battery life is not good Check the App History tab in Task Manager to see which apps use a lot of CPU (don’t forget to check “Show history for all processes”). The Eve V also features four speakers that could easily consume as much power as the CPU, so keep that in mind. If you’re still in the first few days, it needs some time to update, index, and do all the boring stuff. Just let it work, and it will calm itself down.

Some do’s and don’ts from eve.community…
By @NBaron Let’s not forget that using your Eve V in the shower or underwater is not a good idea and will for sure end in the premature death of your device.
By @bmv1221 Do use your PC for computing, browsing, streaming. Do not use the buttery smooth backside as a plate for eating despite the obvious convenience.
By @andybotty Use the Eve V if you want a reliable 2-in-1 that works with you throughout the whole day without the need of charging it.
Don’t use the Eve V if you want a low battery on your 2-in-1 as an excuse to not get your work done.
Congratulations, you have successfully finished reading the start guide. Give yourself a pat on the back and have fun!

A lot of work and passion has been put to make this unique user manual! After this time is there some changes or additional information that we feel should change or that they should be different? Mistakes? Improvements? What do you think?
Internally we have found out that these topics could be good to add…
- Pressing both volume buttons simultaneously = Ctrl+Alt+Del
- What do the pen buttons do? (holding the top one turns tip into right-click, holding the bottom one turns tip into eraser tool in supported software)
- Detail about where to find the Micro SD slot
- TOP 5 / Tips and best practices to keep your V in the best shape!
- Common Fn-button combinations
- How to connect to external monitors
During the next few days we will collect the inputs and suggestions for the new manual!
