Thanks Nickos for your detailed explanation. I assume to have enough Ram, so far a great device.
Just did the update to 20130104, easy seems CWM recovery available on this device. Still running 4.0.4, while our seller list it as JB, and still not one freeze or lag.

-54 dBm on the worst place in my house, where the momo8 IPS has not connection.
On order, nothing, and am i am finished with Chinese cpu's, i prefer my exynos devices.
Favorites, in order of use, Samsung galaxy note 8 inch, Ramos W42, Ployer Momo11 quad exynos 4412.
Sold last months, PiPo U1, Teclast P85, PiPo S2, Teclast P85HD, Cube mini U30GT, Yuandao Vido N80IPS, Ainol Novo 10 Hero ii: very bad, Ployer Momo12, Onda V812, Yuandao Vido N80 RK3188, Teclast P88, Google Nexus 7-8Gb, PiPo M8pro RK3188, Chuwi V88 RK3188, Samsung galaxy tab 7.7, Ployer Momo8 IPS, Yuandao Window N70, BB playbook.

That's good to hear janesh. Wonder when JB will be with us.

Mine has now left Hong Kong and is on its way to Southampton. :good:

An update to Jez's thread. See my post here:
http://www.slatedroi...122#entry571122


Hi Nickos-V,

Thanks for this.

I also noticed your useful post in q & a for the Gameloft license looping issue. Wonder if it's worth also having a thread there for build.prop editing to improve app visibility / compatibility? Could also mention the xml files fix.

At present we seem to have lots of very similar threads about this embedded within multiple tablets sub forums.

EDIT: Nickos and I have continued this conversation via PM to avoid any further off-topic post :good:.

It's arrived :yahoo: First impressions seem excellent. Nice bright and sharp screen and speaker ok.
Seems fast but firmware needs update and need to root and remove all the Chinese bloat.

EDIT: Updated firmware - very easy CWM based from microsd card. Applied root via Exynosabuse - again very easy.

Great service from Repoou on Aliexpress. Ordered Saturday, delivered today (Wednesday) in the UK.

More later.

Great Jezzer that you got the same experience as I did. Rooted yesterday also and removed all chinese apps exept the ramos market.
Battery life is still good, but under 30 percent the ramos w42 will shut down very fast. I wonder if your experience is the same.
After twoo days of use I think I gona sell most of my RK3066 devices and the Onda V812.
After testing 20plus china tabs the last seven-eight months, provisional for me is this all I need.
Looking forward to your review Jez.

Hi janesh,

I will let you know how the battery goes. It came almost fully charged so I am using it tonight until it turns itself off and then charging overnight tonight.

I downloaded Modern Combat 3 (Gameloft game, 1.3Gb) very quickly at the furthest point from the Wifi router so I'm very happy with the Wifi speed. It also ran without any problem and very smoothly :good: Looks gorgeous on this screen. I'm also going to try N.O.V.A. 3 later. I can confirm that the Play Store seems very complete without any obvious missing apps.

Do you think Ramos market is worth keeping?

I will try and do a review with photos and maybe video but as usual time is my enemy especially with a 16 month old baby :)

Cheers
Jez

Wow N.O.V.A.3 looks amazing on this tablet!

The apps, photos and videos that come with this tablet are pretty much the same as on the W30HD. Honestly , I would find it very difficult to see the difference.

Wow N.O.V.A.3 looks amazing on this tablet!

My guess is because of LG IPS display and 161 PPI.

Only negatives I see with W42 are:
-No HDMI
-Low total RAM (628 MB)
-Not able to HW decode certain, less popular video formats (ie. firmware missing libraries?) - see link below.
-Scoring on GLBenchmark, NenaMark, HTML5 is slightly lower than RK3066. http://www.glbenchma... U30GT-H&cols=2
Either because of software issue or lower amount of total RAM slowing things down. Very curious to see if RK3188 does similar or better on the GPU side of things.

W42 Review
http://mp3.zol.com.cn/347/3476890.html

I have to agree that 9.4" (161 PPI) looks better for 1280x800 than 10.1" (149 PPI). That is the way to go when choosing non-retina display.

Edited by Nickos-V, 06 February 2013 - 06:39 PM.


*MINIX NEO X5 (RK3066) - OK. Not fun because uses mouse cursor.
*YUANDAO N80 DUAL (RK3066) - Very good
*CUBE U30GT (RK3066)- Defective; buttons broke in 2-3 weeks; Bad quality control!!! I will never buy a Cube again!!! - Very good while working
*WOPAD I7 (RK2918)- About OK. Sluggish because has weaker ARM chip (RK2918) & less RAM (512 MB).

Btw janesh my battery did the same as yours once it got below about 35 % it tailed off rapidly. I have given it a full overnight charge so let's see how it goes on the second charge.

Thanks for the info and review Nickos-V. I ran a few benchmarks last night including GL benchmark, Antutu, Quadrant and Tajii. Antutu & Quadrant were similar to janesh's results. I will post them later with a mini review. From memory Antutu was around 15000, Quadrant 5000 and Tajii 34 fps.

I also tried viewing this month's Stuff PDF magazine using Adobe reader. This was the best pdf viewing experience of any tablet I have used. Very fast rendering of pages and smooth scrolling and of course the screen is so sharp, clear and bright.

Sounds great Jez. Pdf viewer maybe multi-threaded and why it works very well. Any app that can support 4 cores fully will work very well with Exynos 4412. ie. quad Cortex A9 @ 1.4 GHz. Lots of CPU power.

Make sure to also list the 2D & 3D scores (to have GPU results) for Antutu & Quadrant because total scores in those benches can be strongly affected by CPU, IO or other scores. Also, list the bench versions used by you to make sure others can compare too. ie. Antutu 3.0 may give different result than 3.1, etc. OK. Taiji score is similar to U30GT (33 FPS). 4412 should have scored much better because it "should" have a higher fill rate than RK3066 from higher clocked Mali400s. But, fill rates between RK3066 & 4412 are almost equal when you look at GLBenchmark results below. In fact, RK3066 seems to have a little better fill rate over 4412 which should not happen.

Fill rate & triangle counts are the two most important things that affect GPU benchmarks.


W42 VS U30GT VS Note-10.1
Notice how U30GT beats W42 on 2.1 Egypt Onscreen by decent amount and by little on 2.1 Egypt Offscreen. Then check out Fill Rate Onscreen and see how U30GT beats out W42. ie. this should really not happen. It points to some type of software/firmware or even "very minor" design/hardware issue. Hopefully newer firmware can improve GPU performance but I cannot say for sure. Need to compare to Samsung tablet to see if same or different results with 4412. Will be really interesting when RK3188 starts coming out to see if it gets the same or better GPU results over 4412.

ie. GPU in 4412 seems to score similar or slightly worse than the one in RK3066 even though 4412 is using Mali400-MP4 at higher clock speed. It still is very good but should have done better.

I listed the negatives but most are minor except maybe for HDMI. Some because of Exynos 4412 chip like lower total RAM & others because of Ramos. Still, it sounds like a great tablet to buy and 9.4" is certainly way better for 1280x800 over 10.1".

PS, the 4412 is a great ARM chip to get but I expect RK3188 to be an upgraded version of 4412. RK3188 should be slightly to somewhat better over 4412. ie. much more CPU power for sure and GPU has equal specs to 4412 but GPU performance could be same or higher. Nothing known for sure yet.

Edit: I included Galaxy Note 10.1 (400 MHz GPU?) and can see it compares identical to RK3066 GPU. ie. In terms of GPU performance, 4412 = RK3066. This leads me to believe Mali400 in 4412 maybe not as tweaked or well designed as Mali400 in RK3066? I was expecting better with higher GPU clock speed.

Hi Nickos-V,

Someone I know brought their new Momo12 around this evening for me to set up for him so that has delayed a fuller W42 review. Oh well, best laid plans etc.

Anyway, I took the opportunity to run the same benchmarks on his tablet as on my W42.

I must admit I am a bit perplexed by the apparent similarity between the RK3066 and Exynos 4412 for complex 3D tasks when the RK3066 GPU is supposed to be clocked at 250 Mhz and the Exynos one at 533 Mhz. There was even a sticker on the screen of the W42 saying that the GPU runs at 533 Mhz, and the box also re-states this. It's as though something is holding back the GPU on the Exynos. Well I guess it is still early days and early firmware so I expect (hope) the situation to improve with new firmwares.

EDIT: Nickos-V, just looking at the RK3188 results for the Pipo M9 and it's very interesting. Some of the increase is probably to do with 1400 Mhz vs 1800 Mhz (actually just noticed the M9 runs at 1608 Mhz) but the M9 3D result surely shows that there is a driver/firmware issue with the Exynos.

So here are the results with hopefully the details you need :

Oops just realised I didn't include the detailed Antutu scores...just posting it hang on.

EDIT: Ok done. I don't have the Momo12 now as the chap has gone home so I can't do the detailed Antutu results for that.

EDIT 2: I got the guy to email the Momo12 detailed Antutu results. He ran the benchmark again :pardon: but the results are quite similar to the first run. I have updated the above post.

CPU: 1.4GHz x4     1.6GHz x2        1.6GHz x4
Will do Quadrant next to confirm what I am seeing but what I notice from Antutu results.
-CPU & memory results are little higher on M9 than W42 but higher CPU clock would affect those. ie. within reason.
-2D score much better on RK3188 compared to 4412 & RK3066 (1.24X or 24% better)
-3D score much better on RK3188 & even RK3066 - ie. something really off with 3D on 4412 (1.64X or 64% better)
-IO pretty much same between the chips
-Write is about 2X better on 4412
-Read is about the same on all 3 of them.

W42
-2D score comparable to RK3066 but not as good as RK3188.
-3D score is somewhat off in Antutu and I saw the same in GLBenchmark too that I linked in previous post. Even Note-10.1, which should have really great firmware, only seems to achieve similar 3D performance to RK3066. ie. Rockchip's Mali400 design seems better to me. Ramos improving firmware should help 3D performance improve slightly on 4412. ie. get around same 3D score as RK3066 like the Note-10.1 does in GLBenchmark.


QUADRANT
          W42          Momo12             M9  
Total:   5018           3721             5039
CPU:    12596           7392            14112
Mem:     4232           3629             3667

3D:      1734           2314             2531
Comparing 4412 & RK3188
-For RK3188, CPU score little higher from clock speed. Mem score probably little higher because of that too.
-Mem score is slightly better on 4412 (15%)
-IO score is much better on 4412 (54%); I wonder if write speed affected this score?
-2D is much better on RK3188 (1.89X; 89%)
-3D is much better on RK3188 (1.46X; 46%)

What do Antutu & Quadrant agree on?
Better 2D (A:24%; Q:89%) & 3D (A:64%; Q:46%) with RK3188. What they apparently cannot agree upon is by how much. I honestly cannot believe the big gaps between them for 2D. About 65% difference. What gives??? At least 3D gap is only off by 20% between them. Oh no, my head hurts looking at benchmarks that don't really match up that well with each other. :o Who can you believe to have the most accurate benchmark???

So, 2D is about 25-90% better on RK3188. 3D is about 45-65% better on RK3188 when compared to 4412. You can also see that M9 scores slightly better in 3D over Momo12. ie. should have slightly better 3D performance over RK3066 in other benches too.

My N80 (1024x768) gets Quadrant total score of 4396 with 2D: 962 & 3D: 2356. Something really off with Momo12 2D Quadrant score. Should really be in the 900 or 800 range. Either Quadrant or firmware bug affecting Momo12. Your friend should run Quadrant bench couple of times more to see if he can get something more normal for 2D.

I expect W42 3D scores to match with RK3066 once Ramos firmware is better optimized in next 3-6 months. In that case, RK3188 will have slightly better 3D over 4412 rather than the "somewhat" larger gap that exists between them now.



I will probably move this post to a new thread to give more people the chance to view it. I may also have to clean it up a little more.

Thanks very much to Jez for providing W42 & Momo12 test results to compare with!!!

*MINIX NEO X5 (RK3066) - OK. Not fun because uses mouse cursor.
*YUANDAO N80 DUAL (RK3066) - Very good
*CUBE U30GT (RK3066)- Defective; buttons broke in 2-3 weeks; Bad quality control!!! I will never buy a Cube again!!! - Very good while working
*WOPAD I7 (RK2918)- About OK. Sluggish because has weaker ARM chip (RK2918) & less RAM (512 MB).

Hi guys, I too am waiting W42.
I think that place any assess and compare it to the RK3188 still very early.
New firmware simply must raise the productivity. I read the topic on Ramos W41 (4.pda), there W41 on the old firmware showed the result of Antutu 3.1.1 - 6091, after the new firmware already 10362! - increase significantly.
I think in our case, too, will be all right, forward to the release of new firmware.
p.s. sorry for my English, but I think you have understood the meaning of the foregoing.

No problems Nickos-V thanks for your detailed analysis :good:

I'll ask my friend to do another few Quadrant runs on his Momo12.

Yes I am sure that new firmware will improve matters considerably. I hope Ramos will come up with new fw soon for the W42 as we are still waiting for W30HD firmware that fixes the streaming video issue and the last fw for that is dated 13 December (nearly 2 months old).

Here's the updated Quadrant run on the Momo12. Not that much different from the original. This is the third of three runs.
He is running TNT 1 firmware.

Total: 3822
CPU: 7287
Mem: 3938
I/O: 5402
2D: 189
3D: 2296

2D: 189

Yes, I can still see problem with 2D score. It is way too low. Should be in 900 range like my N80 or at least in 800s. TNT firmware is just a custom version of Ployer firmware. So, the problem lies either in Ployer firmware or Quadrant. Not sure which. He will have to contact both to get it resolved. He may want to test with original Ployer firmware to make sure Roman did not break anything. I don't think Roman would have caused it but good to rule TNT out anyways. Rest of his score looks good without any problems.

It maybe Quadrant bug because Antutu shows a very good 2D score for him? I guess if his 2D games are playing well then not an issue for him.

Later,


PS, hopefully Ramos will provide better firmwares for W42 to bridge the 3D gap with RK3066 & RK3188. I think they were doing lots of fw upgrades for W17 PRO but that was a very popular tablet being the first 8726-mx available.
