JUMPER EZbook X4: Design and Appearance

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The design of the JUMPER EZbook X4 in our analisis is obviously based on the Macbook. The case itself is made entirely of matt metal with chrome-colored edges and accents, such as the touchpad.

This gives the notebook a high-quality look and is also insensitive to fingerprints. Both the top and bottom are very well made and finish flush with the body.

On the bottom, there are still on each corner rubber feet, which ensure a firm state of the Lapbook.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The light and the cheap notebook has stereo speakers, which are located at the bottom behind a small mesh.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Otherwise, I could not detect large gaps or processing errors. Otherwise, the JUMPER EZbook X4 with 7.5-13mm in the folded state is very narrow and runs slightly forward towards the front.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Even otherwise, the notebook is very compact and with just 1.3kg pleasantly light.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Display

The JUMPER EZbook X4 in the test has a 14.0 FullHD IPS display without touchscreen function.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

It may look like an ultrabook, but remember that it is not. In the corners and at the edges a slight screen bleeding can be seen.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The EZbook X4 is a glossy display, which means that it is protected by a shiny glass surface and you must take the incoming reflections into account.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

On the top is still a 2-megapixel webcam placed. The quality is rather below average and rather enough for simple video chats all Skype.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

This also means that in strong sunlight under clear skies, the display and difficult to read. Simply the backlight of the display is simply not enough.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

So even if you have to change the angle more often, at least the IPS panel is very stable in viewing angles.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Otherwise, the display delivers namely a very good sharpness, strong colors and good contrast. Apart from the light halos, I could determine but otherwise no pixel errors.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Hardware and Performance

The JUMPER EZbook X4 in the analisis is not a gaming device, but a pure office notebook. But that should be clear in the face of the Intel Lake N4100 processor. The CPU is usually used in cheaper laptops and is no longer the latest in the market.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

This darkens the good impression of the laptop because the CPU is about half as fast as a Core i3-6100U.

But you get with the 8GB of RAM much more memory than in comparable devices. This is a DDR3L RAM and only clocks at 1333MHz, but tickles the laptop a bit more performance, especially if you work with many office applications and browser tabs.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

But with the unlocked UEFI, you can get a bit more power out of the CPU by selecting “Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework” under “Advanced / Thermal” BIOS settings and “Advanced / CPU Configuration / CPU Power Management” “Power Limit 1 Enable” deactivated.

With that, you lift up the limits and increase the performance of the processor a bit. You do not have to be afraid of overheating, because the cooling is enough for the Lapbook for it, but as always you do it at your own risk and we assume no liability for any damage. (Thanks again to colleagues Chinamobilemag for the tip!)

Overall, but you have nothing to fool because the JUMPER EZbook X4 is only limited to play. And if you have to go down the graphics settings very far.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

As usual, you can not expect too much from the integrated GPUs, like the Intel HD Graphics 600. It could be enough for a few old games beads.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The JUMPER EZbook X4 in the test has an SSD memory with a size of 128GB.

As a test, I have tried it once with LEGO Undercover, R.U.S.E, and Counter Strike Global Offensive.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Despite low resolution, it flopped in LEGO Undercover at 8-20 fps rum and reasonable playing was out of the question.

Everything in the game was very tough and lagged. In R.U.S.E at 30-45fps, it was quite decent on low settings, but then it is also visually more likely Urgs.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Last but not least CS GO with 15-25fps also rather unsuitable. Sure it works, but the fun does not come up there rather.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Operating system

Here, as with most Windows notebooks, there is not much to tell. The cheap notebook PC comes with an official Windows 10 Home license and is delivered in English at the factory.

The language can also be easily changed in the settings in English, but you have to first download some updates and language packs.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

Personally, I’m not always a fan of the languages and updates, so I always pack an official Windows 10 image on a USB stick and generally reinstall the laptop always. This is not a criticism of this notebook, but my approach.

But before you do that, always remember to read out the Windows 10 Home Key before you can reinstall it.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Сonnections

The different connections are located on both sides. It has been decided in the laptop, the USB 3.0 ports in addition to the mini HDMI port to install only on the left side, which is a pity.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

For the mini-HDMI port, most will probably have to buy an adapter to connect it somewhere.

On the right side, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, the power connector, and an SD card slot.

Although the two ports of cheap notebook stationery are USB 3.0 ports but provide a little too little power to operate on an external drive can.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The microSD card slot has a spring mechanism and achieved transfer rates of just under 40MB/s Read + 20MB/s Write – no gloss values but Ok. But it at least concludes with the housing flush and is not available.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Touchpad

The touchpad of JUMPER EZbook X4 of cheap notebook for students has a size of 11 x 6.5cm and also supports multi-touch gestures, including two-finger scrolling and pinch-to-zoom (two-finger contraction to zoom).

There are also other 3-finger and four-finger gestures even with Windows functions assignable.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The precision is also fine, although here and there minimal pointer jumps/slight tightening of the pointer are noticeable.

The integrated mouse buttons react well but the pad has to be pushed in a bit far. Overall, the touchpad but is at a high level in the price range and most users should cope well with it.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Keyboard

Also, the best and cheap notebook JUMPER EZbook X4 is a pure import product and so you have to compromise on the keyboard layout QWERTY.

If that bothers you too much, you can get additional keyboard stickers. Anyone who can type blindly with a ten-finger system will not really disturb that.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The keys protrude slightly further out of the case, which improves typing and reduces incorrect input.

Can I confirm and the typing feel is consistently very pleasant and accurate? Longer and faster writing was no problem in my test.

It should be emphasized that the JUMPER EZbook X4 in the review has even installed a keyboard lighting.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

This is rare in this price range and is quite a purchase argument for one or the other, especially if you want to write a lot in dark surroundings or dim light.

The illumination is good and shines well even under the keys. The lighting can also be switched on or off using the FN + ESC key.

What I noticed was that after a restart of Windows this is not activated by default and each time anew has to be activated.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Connectivity

The JUMPER EZbook X4 supports Bluetooth 4.0, as well as dual-band WiFi 2.4GHz / 5.0GHz (802.11 a / b / g / n / ac).

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

In my WLAN test, I could find no problems here, both the range, performance, and stability were perfect here. The Bluetooth connection, however, weakened a bit with too small a range.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Sound

The stereo speakers of JUMPER EZbook X4 are a bit unfavorable on the bottom of the laptop because if you put it on your feet, the speakers will be hidden.

The sound quality is not outstanding and they sound rather tinny and loveless. There’s just about everything missing in dynamics but that too is normal in this price segment.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

If you plug in headphones it will be much better (depending on the headset) and you can get a bit more out of the Windows settings.

There is a microphone next to the webcam at the top, but the sound is rather mediocre and noisy.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Battery

The battery capacity of the JUMPER EZbook X4 is 9,600mAh and lasted 7-9 hours depending on the application.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

In pure Office mode, it is longer than in high-performance applications. In my test with a YouTube loop of a 1080p video, it made 7 hours, which is a good value.

The charge of 5% to 100% then takes a little longer with 3.0 hours, where the last 10% of 90-100% needed almost 1 hour. For example, 90% needed 2 hours.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Conclusions and Reviews

I’m a little torn from the JUMPER EZbook X4. On the one hand, we already have a good appearance with quality materials. Even the good 1080p display is fine.

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

In addition, you get a whopping 8GB of memory. The battery performance we found very good, although the loading time required.

Nevertheless, the laptop lacks some performance, because it is usually only suitable for the usual office applications, mailing, surfing or streaming.

Although it can be a little more power with the “disabled power limits” trickle out, but that’s it already. Performance-hungry applications are either very tough or not at all. The QWERTY keyboard must be accepted, as with all import laptops.

JUMPER EZbook X4: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

JUMPER EZbook X4 Review: Responsible and Cheap Notebook 2018

The price of JUMPER EZbook X4 is almost $320 is currently in my eyes for the bid but set too good. Now, you can buy EZbook X4 for good price only $319.99  $299.99.

If you are looking for a well-made notebook with high-quality materials for office applications and can live with the compromises, you will still receive a good device.
