We should sometimes be distracted from smartphones and review something else, so we took the Chinese Nextbook NXW116QC264 laptop for testing and reviews. This is one of the first devices released after the closure of the Z-series of chipsets, on which most of these devices were created, created by small Chinese companies in 2015-2016. Instead, Nextbook decided to use the Intel Atom Z3735F chipset. In terms of form factor Nextbook NXW116QC264 copies Lenovo Yoga, that is, the screen opens up 360 degrees, turning the device into a bulky tablet. Let’s study the creation of Nextbook.

Nextbook NXW116QC264: Configuration and Design

In a huge box, in addition to the notebook itself, you can find documentation, a charger, and a stylus. A fork is charging Chinese, for use with our sockets you need an adapter. The charging plate uses a special round port.

The stylus is powered through the micro USB port. Using the stylus makes it difficult that the tablet captures not only the touch of the screen but also holding the end of the stylus a few millimeters away from it. It is very difficult to write by hand because of this. In addition, the finger touches continue to be fixed.

The laptop is available in two colors – black and blue. We have a black version. The body material looks nice and is even more pleasantly tactile, but it is very unpleasant for a smell. A sharp chemical smell – not even plastic and paint; I’m not sure that the case material is at least safe for health. To the gadget stopped smelling unpleasant, I had to leave it on the windowsill for the whole day with the windows open.

Let’s walk along the body. On the left, there is a USB port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a useless slot (in theory it is a SIM card slot, but no cellular networks support), a volume rocker, a power button and a slider for locking the keyboard and touchpad. On the right, there is an LED indicator, a charging hole, a second USB port, a micro HDMI port and a memory card tray. Above the screen is a 2-megapixel webcam of nice quality. It’s all bad at both detailing and color rendering (I was on the screen now red or green, just like at a traffic light), and Skype should be treated with caution. What will the red grandmother think of you?
