The Eve V isn’t your typical tablet PC. The 2-in-1 device tries to cater to specific buyers by offering several configurations. It’s not developed the way other tablets are. In most cases, it’s the company that plays a role in picking components for a product it will release. The Eve V takes a slightly different approach. It started out as a group of people who wanted to create a powerful Windows tablet because high-performing tablets were quite limited especially compared to laptops and Smartphones. They were later encouraged to create something that could meet the needs of people who wanted a more reliable tablet.
The Eve V is indeed very chunky for a tablet. It has a 12.3-inch screen, which is considerably large compared to the average tablet which usually sports a 10-inch screen or smaller. Despite the chunky design, it feels solid and slim. Since the community focuses more on performance, so the screen size was a tough decision to make. It’s not realistic to expect a lightweight device judging by the dimensions. Luckily, the weight is quite moderate. You won’t break a sweat carrying it around. The kickstand pretty much reveals that it’s a hybrid device. It boosts its flexibility, allowing you to use it in various positions. Meanwhile, the keyboard deck feels sturdy and becomes more attractive since the keys are backlit.
The V boasts a 12.3-inch sharp IGZO LCD with a resolution of 2880 x 1920. It’s manually calibrated to test the brightness and crispness. Well, it comes as no surprise because the device is not mass-produced like the others. If you’re skeptical about it, remember that the device was pioneered by people who truly care about the details of a tablet. There are bezels on all sides of the screen, but they aren’t that thick, so you will get used to them eventually. The screen also gets extra protection from Gorilla Glass. When it comes to quality, the display is impressive. The high resolution makes everything look sharp. As for the color reproduction, it’s satisfactory and promises 100% sRGB coverage.
We’ve addressed that the Eve V is available in different configurations. Buyers are allowed to select a processor they want and it will affect the cost. Here are the choices; Intel Core m3-7Y30, Intel Core i5-7Y54, Intel Core i7-7Y75. The same goes for the built-in RAM in which you can choose between the 8GB and 16GB variants. The storage options are more extensive. In addition to 128GB and 256GB, there are also 512GB and 1TB PCIe SSD. Performance-wise, the tablet is more capable than its rivals simply because it’s specifically designed to be a powerhouse. You can try it by installing apps like Adobe Creative Cloud. All of the CPU choices are fast, so the device has no problem handling intensive tasks. It runs Windows 10 Home, but you can opt for the Pro as well.
The device is created with performance in mind, which means despite the bulky appearance, there are areas where it truly shines. Aside from performance, battery life also proves that. It packs a 48wh battery which can get you through a whole day on a single charge.
