Jide Remix SK1-W2

The Jide Remix SK1-W it’s a brand new 2 in 1 tablet PC that was released back in May of the current year. This PC-tablet offers an interesting choice of a device for business and entertainment purposes due to its convenient design and mobile features. The Jide Remix features a powerful Tegra Quad-Core 1.8 GHz CPU by Nvidia alongside a GeForce ULP GPU by the same company, this combination provides a great mobile performance suitable for working and playing. This PC comes with 2 GB Ram plus 64 GB Rom for internal storage. The Screen it’s a strong point since we are talking about an 11.6 inch Screen that supports a 1080P resolution, which provides an awesome experience for watching videos, movies or for playing games.

The Jide Remix SK1-W is powered by the new Remix OS, which is a custom-engineered version of Android 5.1 that offers a full PC-like experience suitable for working at the office and for playing at home. The laptop also offers Wi-Fi connectivity on Dual bands (2.4G and 5G) alongside Bluetooth 4.0 to sync with other devices. Is worth mentioning the presence of dual 5.0MP HD cameras on the front and the rear.  Last but not least, we have the 8100mAh battery, which has a large capacity capable of delivering up to 8 hours of continuous video.

As we stated before, the Jide Remix SK1-W has tablet features, meaning that you can detach the screen from the keyboard and start using it as a regular handheld device. This allows us to use the device as a normal notebook at work and using the system as a tablet while you lie in bed at home and just want to relax.

Design & body details

One of the strongest points of the Jide Remix lies on its design and built. Firstly, it has a magnetic detachable keyboard combined with a creative outer design. The aluminum alloy back case can be folded and unfolded to serve as a stand that allows using the device as a notebook, fold it back and you will have a tablet. And speaking about the stand, this provides adjustable angles, from 40 to 80-degree angles. The body has metallic properties combined with some elements made out of plastic, these elements make the body resistant and above the average 2 in 1 devices.

The size dimensions are the following 11.61 x 7.44 x 0.37 inches. The Jide Remix SK1-W is lightweight, only 0.844 kg. Therefore, it is very easy to handle and can be carried almost anywhere without problems.

The design of the speakers has also been meticulously planned, there are several immersed sound holes that provide a special stereo system with clean sounds and noise reduction, which makes the Jide Remix SK1-W ideal for listening to music and watching movies.

Another crucial factor it’s the keyboard, which has considerable similarities with the keyboards meant for tablets, but has been optimized for office usage. Firstly, the distance among keys is only 19.2 mm. There are 15 shortcut icons present and a total of 81 keys.

Taking the keyboard out of the equation we have an 11.6 inches tablet. Alongside the display, on the frontal section the following elements can be found: A frontal camera, a microphone and a virtual home key on the inferior section. Over the right corner, the power button is located.

On the right side of the device, you’ll find the majority of the available ports, which can be listed as follows: a 3.5mm earphone port, a micro USB 2.0, a 4-pin magnetic charging port, and finally three sound holes. On the left side, a volume control can be found alongside another group of three sound holes. On the rear case, you’ll find a camera, the foldable stand and a slot for SD cards.

Jide Remix SK1-W performance: CPU & GPU

As many PC adepts out there know, Nvidia is one of the best Graphics card brands that exists, for such reason, the Chipset embedded in this device features great possibilities. But let’s start from the beginning, the chipset is an Nvidia Tegra SoC based on the ARM Cortex-A15 CPU architecture, it features a 64-bit Quad-Core CPU running at 1.8GHz of clock frequency.  This processor is commonly featured in tablets and smartphones but also offers a great performance.

The GPU that comes along is an NVIDIA GeForce ULP, it is able of delivering top-notch performance on mobile devices, HD videos and movies will work smoothly and there isn’t game that this GPU can’t run. However, keep in mind that we are talking about Android games since the OS is practically an enhanced version of Android 5.1. Everything else such as browsing the interface can be done flawlessly.

OS & Software

The Jide Remix SK1-W runs Remix OS, which is an OS based on Android 5.1 lollipop that has been exponentially enhanced, and offers a complete PC experience unlike anything on Android but keeping all its features at the same time.

Memory

The Jide Remix SK1-W has 2 GB of Ram and 64 GB of Rom memory that is used for storage. The amount of ram allows for quick experience while surfing the web, running apps, playing videos, etc. keep in mind that this is still an Android system but installed on a ultrabook. However, the storage is rather short if you intend to use it for saving many files, but it can be expanded up to 128 GB via SD card.

Connectivity

Regarding network connectivity we have the standard and a slightly plus, Jide Remix SK1-W features Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi: 802.11b/g/n in dual bands (2.4/5G), which means that the device can connect to networks in that frequency, which is able of delivering a faster and more stable signal.

Camera

This 2 in 1 PC tablet features two 5.0MP cameras, one on the front and the other on the rear. Both cameras have focus, autofocus, face detection and video features. 

Battery

When it comes to battery, we have an 8100mAh Battery that can last up to 8 hours playing video, but of course, this depends on the usage and settings used. Therefore, that number can fluctuate widely, especially while using the keyboard. However, we are in the presence of a long duration battery anyways.

The Jide Remix offers an outstanding 2 in 1 experience suitable for work and entertainment alike, all of this for an affordable price. Firstly, this peculiar tablet PC has a good Quad-Core CPU by Nvidia, which alongside the new Remix OS provide a rich experience. It’s important to point out that with this device you get the best of two worlds, the multitasking features of a PC alongside the convenience and mobility of Android, all this in the same package.

Jide Remix SK1-W review

The specifications of the Jide Remix are fairly decent for a product of this price range, but it’s necessary to address what it can do and what not. Firstly, it’s an Android device within its core, although you can perform all the actions you would do on a normal PC, such as multi-tasking. But, you would have to rely on Apps only, however, the Remix OS offers a wide variety of functions and features that compensate for that and give the Jide Remix an added value that you should take into consideration, especially if you are looking for a portable device and can’t decide between a notebook and a tablet.
