After we have reviewed the Teclast F6 Pro for you, we will deal with the Teclast F7 in our review, which we have now taken under the microscope.
The Teclast F7 in 2018 is the big and yet the little brother of the Teclast F6 Pro. The specs are almost the same, for just under $ 150 less there is, on the one hand, a 64GB EMMC memory instead of 128GB SSD and a larger display of 14.1 inches.
The Teclast F7 was provided to us by Gearbest, thank you very much.
Teclast F7: Packaging
The packaging of the Teclast F7 is like the F6 Pro. Brown cardboard with logo and specs, plus the Intel logo.
The accessories are according to a laptop, a charging cable, a warranty card and a manual.
Teclast F7: Design and Appearance
The Teclast F7 is very similar to F6 Pro. The case is made of metal in this case but still feels the very high quality.
The hinges are too smooth so that the laptop Teclast F7 in our analisis can sometimes fold when moving. Here I would have liked a little more rigidity.
The screws on the case are all made of stainless steel, as well as the feet are also well-made ABS material.
There are no sharp edges in the case, everything is processed really clean. Connections, the device also offers almost the same as the Pro.
We have on one side each a USB port (2 x 3.0), a 3.5mm jack and a mini HDMI connector.
The 2.0 MP camera sits below the display this time because the frame is kept very slim. For Skype just enough, the 2.0 MP has torn off the stool.
Teclast F7: Display
The display of Teclast F7 is a 14.1-inch FHD display with anti-glare in 16: 9 format. In the test you could also read wonderfully in the sun everything from the display, there was no difficulty.
It is identical resolutions to the display of the F6 Pro version. In terms of size, the display has a pixel density of 156 ppi, which is not high, but in spite of everything absolutely sufficient.
Pixels are not immediately recognizable, and the brightness is also very good in dark rooms.
Teclast F7: Hardware and Performance
The SoC in the Teclast F7 is not identical to the F6 Pro. The whole thing is powered by the current Intel SoC (Apollo Lake N) with a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron N3450 processor.
In addition, there are 6GB of RAM and the internal memory includes here in contrast to the Pro a 256GB SSD disk.
In addition, you can install a MicroSD up to 128 GB, but what you really need in view of the really fast SSD.
The operating system is also Windows 10 Home 64bit. As with the F6 Pro, the device must be set to German, as only English and Chinese are preinstalled.
Once all the updates go through and then you can install additional languages. After 2 hours everything was done and the device was really clean.
The benchmark in the Teclast F7 in 2018. It’s, of course, the same SoC as in the F6 Pro that it’s certainly not a laptop for games. Business applications run great, and even movies in Full HD are played smoothly.
Old games run with security, u.a. After all, Counterstrike Source runs with just under 30 frames. I also ran various benchmarks to show all the results. Of course, the eMMC not gives us a small performance advantage over the SSD memory from the F6 Pro version.
PCMARK 10 provides results for operating the laptop, i.a. write and read speeds, video playback or opening documents.
Unfortunately, PCMark has assigned the wrong processor here, while the system display and the other benchmarks have assigned the processor correctly.
Nevertheless, one sees various good results, e.g. a video conference is running at 30fps and an excel document will open in about 1 second.
Geekbench already knows it from our Android tests, here are various SoC tests performed, e.g. how does the laptop behave with single-core or multi-core usage?
Teclast F7: Keyboard and Touchpad
Also in the Teclast F7 was set to a chiclet keyboard, which is similar to the keyboard of the Macbook. Very good response time, and after 2 weeks of use I can say great keyboard.
The touchpad in the Teclast F7 in our test is apparently the same as in the F6 Pro version.
Although I have to say that it runs cleaner and rounder than on the F6 Pro, the clicks were not so swallowed here and the reaction was significantly better overall.
Teclast F7: Battery
The battery of the Teclast F7 held like the F6 Pro very long. In continuous operation he played scarce 6 hours of videos, working could be 8 hours with simultaneous listening to music and in standby mode, he was off after 5 days.
Which in total is a very acceptable result in 2018. Theoretically, you could also in the case of a battery failure unscrew the notebook bottom and remove the battery, but it is not without opening.
Teclast F7: Conclusions and Reviews
Teclast F7 in our review showed itself with a decent side, you can notice it is similar to Teclast F6 Pro, but at a price of F7 is much smaller.
New laptop Teclast F7 on the technical side has good positive specs is the Intel Celeron N3450 processor or 6 GB of RAM.
If you are looking for an office notebook with 14 inches and an acceptable SoC, you will be well served, as 14 inches and 6GB RAM is not as widely available in notebooks.
Teclast F7: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
At the moment you can buy a new model of laptop Teclast F7 for a good and affordable price for $299.99 in 2018.
