I have been focussing my efforts on the M3. There is an issue with it where the CPU seems to be running at 252Mhz 100% of the time so it seems very slow!
It also keeps locking up but this is probably due to the slow CPU. Antutu won't run it just locks up.
I don't have any build quality issues as someone else reported; buttons all seem to work ok and it seems well put together.
The screen is nice but not as bright as a Cube U30GT-H (32Gb) which I have borrowed. I'll post some comparison photos later.
It rooted ok with Zhuodashi 2.2.12 so I tried using Antutu CPU Master to see if I could set the CPU to run at a higher frequency but so far no luck.
Bottom line at the moment; I cannot say for certain that it is not a hardware problem but my view would be that it is probably a firmware issue. If it is then Pipo need to get some new firmware out and fast!! Watch this space....
P.S. On the subject of an old concern (see the original Cube U30GT thread) I am convinced that the Cube U30GT-H 32Gb model that I borrowed does have an IPS screen. Side by side with the Pipo it is hard to notice any difference in viewing angles and the Cube screen actually goes brighter. Colours seem very similar on both.
EDIT: Here are some photos of the M3:
This shows how the CPU frequency is stuck at 252Mhz:
Here are a couple of shots of the Pipo Movie M3 (top) compared to the Cube U30GT-H (bottom); both set to Maximum brightness:
I cannot add any more photos to this post so click here for some viewing angle shots or scroll down a couple of posts.
