The computer market is experiencing a complicated but interesting moment. Nowadays, the tablets seem to be losing the market, while on the other hand a new middle class is established. They are cheap laptops, mainly Chromebooks, as well as convertible laptops. The FNF Ifive Mini 4S in the review has one foot in each of the two segments.
The FNF Ifive Mini 4S have a mobile Android 6.0.1 OS. Its two operating systems can be considered as the desktop.
7.9 inch with 2048 x 1536 Pixels, RAM: 2GB, ROM: 32GB, Battery: 4800mAh, Android 6.0, Rockchip RK3288 1.6GHz,Quad Core
What is the target audience of this FNF? Although a priori there are few differences, in practice there are, and not only in size.
Design and Build
The material of FNF Ifive Mini 4S used for the body is metal. The exact dimensions are 19.80 x 13.30 x 0.70 cm, plus a weight of 0.34kg. When you take it in your hands it does not become considerably heavy, although it compensates with a very fine design.
In this case, the speaker is located on the sides and not on the back of the device. It is an improvement that is noticed when sound is reproduced, especially when the device is leaning on a flat surface. The FNF Ifive Mini 4S can be heard perfectly, without blocking the surface on which it is supported.
Perhaps it can be added that the use of the body of the device is not optimal. Or put it another way: the body is too big for the size of the screen. When looking at its front, the screen looks small, but it is not at all.
As its name suggests, the FNF Ifive Mini 4S in analisis has almost 8 inches of the display; 7.9 inches, to be more exact. This size is already too big to consider a mobile device at the level of any tablet, increasingly approaching the category of laptop.
The touch response of the IPS Retina panel is very good, far surpassing the smaller model. Thanks to the resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, it must be said that the content in Full HD looks pretty good.
As with all devices, whether mobile or not, it is important that the display is luminous and visible from any angle. In this aspect, this tablet with the soul of 2 in 1 fulfills with more. It is not intended for outdoor use and is that despite the brightness, reflections make an appearance in outdoor.
With 8 inches, you can already see perfectly any element of the screen. The quality of the colors and the sharpness of the screen are very good. Especially surprising is the brightness of colors such as green, yellow or blue.
Hardware and Performance
Features of the FNF Ifive Mini 4S in the test include a Rockchip RK3288 1.6GHz Quad Core processor and 2 GB of RAM.
Not bad and above all is enough to be able to run Android 6.0. However, even if they are two good data, do not think that they equate this tablet to a laptop with another type of processor.
Although the FNF Ifive Mini 4S enough power for the Android operating system to run fairly smoothly, and also some 3D PC games, such as League of Legends.
This operating system developed by Jide has Google Play. All Android apps are supported, although their interface is virtually identical to that of a desktop operating system. In the software section, it makes the FNF Ifive Mini 4S have the best of both worlds.
If you want your users to think that instead of handling a tablet they handle something more, it is important to give the device a wide autonomy. Otherwise, once you go beyond the usual use of social networks and video, the autonomy may vanish at lightning speed.
This is why it has 4800mAh capacity, enough to guarantee up to five and a half hours of video playback in Full HD, as we have seen in the test of the FNF Ifive Mini 4S.
The battery is probably the aspect that deserves the best opinion of the FNF Ifive Mini 4S and is that if you use it to surf the Internet, to process text and to watch videos occasionally, its autonomy is enough to not be in trouble. Not bad, especially if we consider the size of your screen and the consumption of Android 6.0.
Android is a much lighter operating system in terms of resource consumption. This means that it will not do you much good to boot with Android to save battery.
In the connectivity section, this tablet is very few things missing, at least in terms of hardware. It has Micro USB, OTG, the slot for MicroSD up to 128GB. The back camera is 8MP and the front camera is 2MP, so the photos are of high quality, although for video calls they do well with its function.
As it does not finish taking off the tablet label, it is compatible with the PDF format. To read comics or books can serve, at least for a while, as the IPS screens are not intended for this purpose. Also, being relatively heavy, reading comics is uncomfortable if you do not use a base to support it.
FNF Ifive Mini 4S attempts to make a dent in the market, it is the Ifive Mini 4S is one of the best. It is not intended for the most demanding public but can replace a tablet for those who use it to surf the Internet, interact on social networks and work with productivity applications, such as word processors.
As we have seen in our review, for the price of the FNF Ifive Mini 4S about $120. Of course, you have to put two important hits: it is not the device to play games. The good quality of the screen mitigates negative aspects.
With sufficient battery life, you can travel with it without problems or stresses, especially in work trips and short journeys.
