Do you want a large and powerful tablet at the same time? Having Android without giving up the possibility of using Windows? Maybe the Wave V919 3G Air you are interested, and in The Free Android we tell you firsthand how it works in our analysis.
The Chinese market is advancing with more force, and not all the action is focused on the big ones like Xiaomi or Huawei: there are many smaller manufacturers fighting hand in hand with those brands to gain a foothold in this tight market. And who can resist a tablet that offers things like an Intel processor, dual boot of Android and Windows, or a high resolution screen?
Wave V919 3G Air: technical sheet and specifications
We are talking about a 9.7-inch screen, so we cannot expect the V919 3G Air Wave to be small: its size is considerable, due to this screen that occupies the entire front glass, with frames in the middle that could be smaller. The rear part has metallic finishes, although a top part (where both the SIM and the SD is introduced) of pure and hard plastic, next to the side buttons of the same material, breaks with the harmony of the whole.
As we mentioned at the beginning, the front is dominated by the screen, a front camera and a lower touch button that acts as Home (although this does not prevent Android from using the navigation bar). In the back we find Chinese screen printing, a rear camera, and that plastic upper part that we have to remove to introduce the respective cards. We have to go to the right side to find the typical volume and power buttons in addition to a small hole to reset, the upper side has a 3.5mm jack, t the bottom has a pair of speakers and a microUSB connector.
If your intention is to use this Wave V919 with one hand, I anticipate that it will be a complicated mission: its use with one hand is far from being recommended, we will need to use both to hold the almost 500 grams that weighs (something normal to be almost 10 inches of screen). Is Very fine, but some of you may find it very heavy to carry with her all day. Even so, handling it with two hands is no effort, and it may be the solution you are looking for if you need a screen size like that.
The maximum brightness levels are correct and allow us to see the screen backlight well, although the minimum brightness level could be lower for those occasions when we are with the tablet at night. The resolution used is a success, responds well to the pulsations of our fingers, and shows bright colors if we compare it to other screens.
Software and user experience
We have to go to the software to find the best of this tablet: its ability to change operating system, a dual boot that uses both Windows 8.1 With Bing and Android 4.4.4 KitKat With a wave customization layer. We can make the switch between systems whenever we want, although it will restart the tablet in the process, using a dedicated button in the Android quick settings or an icon in the Windows 8.1 taskbar.
Before talking about how Android works on the tablet, I would like to talk about how Windows works: Microsoft has been doing a very good job lately, and using Windows on this Wave V919 is a joy: surf the internet, watch videos of all kinds, play games not very demanding … we find all the possibilities that any other Windows computer has, being a joy to have the complete programs whenever you want.
On the other hand, I must say that the Android installed on the V919 Wave is something chaotic: the customization layer gives a touch iOS Android that can be confusing at first, not to mention all the Chinese applications that come preinstalled (some can be uninstalled and others can only be disabled) and we will not know what they are for. It even comes with Clean Master preinstalled, something that many (including me) will not like.
Regarding the pure performance of Android on the tablet, nothing goes wrong: for daily use it works like a charm Without having to do too many tricks. The lag only appears when there is a lot of load and is occasional, so it is a very minor evil, and has Google Play installed, although we will have to install the rest of Google applications from there.
