I can China but it's not that straightforward. Many things including tablets and phones and powerbanks taobao will refuse to sell to overseas even with taobao own forwarder due to restrictions usually battery. This is where concerige service is needed to bypass this restriction along with using sensitive air instead of economy.

Anyway just to share, I also bought the same tablet from AliExpress via FedEx IE, the seller dispatched the stock from Hong Kong. FedEx IE from HK only cost around USD$15, cheaper than sensitive air from China.
This is true! Due to some stupid restriction, some of the items need to be sent via third parties

These third parties service providers are just taking this advantage, They just anyhow set your parcels as sensitive item, must be shipped by sensitive air/sea which cost extra money.

Some times, some items contain not "restricted items or dangerous items", also set is a sensitive items, just to charge high rate.

Try to avoid this trap, unless you have no choice.

I just received my Ifive Mini 4S. Not bad... bought from here for US$135 during VIP offer including express shipping.

Tablet feels solid with the metallic housing, very good display... flashed with official firmware update 1.06... fast speeds on Marshmallow 6.01.

Feels like a good upgrade from my broken Nexus 7 (2013).
Hi, May i know where you bought it from? Thanks!


The word 'here' in my post is the link


anyway, here it is:

I have it and I can't recommend

1) Having white spots on the screen is considered normal. My unit #1 has 2 spots. Waiting for the unit #2 probably reaching 2 months later.
2) Has coil whine when docked with the keyboard.
3) Very slow charging speed. The onboard DC-DC converter supplying power to both the CPU and the battery draws around 1A 5V for charging + CPU regardless of CPU load. In Windows mode the power consumption is higher than what the DC-DC converter can supply so you actually slowly loses battery charge instead. And even when in Android mode or switched off, it still takes a long time to charge. For comparison, nowadays handphone can charge >1A and have 3000mAh battery.
4) Seems to use low quality eMMC? Unresponsive and feels like HDD if not worse, opening programs takes a long time.
5) Distorted audio at lower output volumes in Android mode. This is independent of volume setting and is determined by the final volume of the sound (i.e. loud audio file * low volume setting or soft audio file * higher volume setting has the same result).
6) Poor keyboard quality, some issues with capacitive touchpad. Keeps doing "Show Desktop" if touchpad is enabled and you have body part touching places other than the touchpad.
7) Poor touchpad quality. Left click right click are at bottom corners of touchpad. Click and drag cannot reliably work.
8) Inaccurate touchscreen. Cannot click "Show Desktop" button (bottom right) in Windows 10. Is build quality issue because if I rotate screen it works.
9) No 5GHz wifi support
10) In Android mode, screen minimum brightness is too high
11) May be an Intel issue, but audio cannot choose anything besides 16-bit 48kHz in Windows mode.

thanks. no big issues as long as i dont buy keyboard. as for charging issue I guess I need to off and charge.

the sound not an issue. Same on my iwork 8 cannot change from 16-bit 48kHz.

As for low quality emmc, I think deleting unnecessary services, apps and using portable version of apps should help

Export - overseas set. No warranty usually.
Local - warranty covered by local manufacturer. But sometimes it's covered by the seller themselves.

These tablet PC seems to be the new trend. Is the China Win 10 an issue? Able to switch to english? Possible to connect and print to usb printer?
