Hey guys what’s up Zi here with Zi Reviws
Tech and I have on the table because its too big to fit in my hands, this is the 4th version
of Voyo’s best selling laptop, the Apollo Lake Celeron Voyo VBook V3. So the Voyo VBook V3 has been improved, you
have the new Intel Apollo Lake Celeron N4200 processor, a 12,000mAh battery, and a 128GB
M.2 SSD and a 32GB eMMC drive a strange combination, usually its just one or the other. The Apollo Lake Celeron should be at least
twice as fast as the old Atom processors and close-ish compared to Core Ms at least in
basic stuff. I’m pretty exited to test out the new Celeron
devices so let’s get right into it. This laptop is honestly kinda big and heavy. to be fair i’ve been using my Xiaomi Air 12
which is small and light, but on the plus side the laptop feels pretty durable as well. The laptop is made of a nice soft touch rubber
which doesn’t feel super premium like a Macbook but it diefintely doesn’t feel cheap either
and if you live in a cold country, its not as shocking when you first put your hands
on the laptop. You have two USB ports a mciroSD card slot
as wel as a Mini HDMI port. because you can turn this laptop into a tablet there are also
power and volume buttons on the left side and a keyboard lock switch as well. so when you open the laptop up there’s a lot
of bezel. I really don’t like how much bezel there is
because it makes this laptop look dated. the screen can rotate
a full 360 degrees and will be useful to quite a few people but me perseonally its just a
gimmick that i don’t really use. so let’s talk about the ways you can interact
with this device, there’s 4 methods, the keyboard, trackpad, touchscreen, and stylus. the keyboard is plastic, the travel is pretty
decent and overall its not a bad keyboard but it does lack the premium feel of other
more expensive laptops. the trackpad is surprisingly decent. accuracy is good when using one finger, and
two finger scrolling the most important gesture works well, but there is a lot less inertia
than on Macbooks. the touchscreen is good but its not as sensitive
as the iPad or surface but still more than good enough for ever yday use. The stylus does not support pressure senstivty
so its more like a really good capacitive stylus for taking notes. even then its not that great an experience
because if you don’t lift the stylus far enough off the screen it just keeps on witing, making
anything you write into a super curvy mess. so the screen, we have here a 1080p IPS screen,
13.3″ so definitely good, the screen is actually quite decent in terms of colour and saturation,
its cooler than other screens but still looks good. The max brightness goes up to around 300 nits
which is good enough for outdoor use but not under sunlight. There is also a screen protector preinstalled
which i don’t ecommend you take off or the pen might scratch teh screen. we have two downward firing speakers which
are not the most ideal place to put laptop speakers, it gets muffled eaily if you use
it on your lap so its best to use it on a hard surface. so audio quait is actually not bad, there
is a decent amount of bass and audio is quite clear as well which is definitely impressive
for this laptop. However volume isn’t very high so its hard
to hear even over some cooking. I was the most worried about battery life
because i had no idea what to expect from the new apollo lake processors. Yes you have a 12,000mah battery which is
slightly bigger than previous generations of this laptop but the celeron processor is
also a lot more power hngry than atom processors. so i was able to get around 8 hours of use
which is slightly behind atom laptops but also slightly better than Core M devices. I was mostly web browsing, checking email
and typing out word documents while watching some occasional YouTube. I was able to play back video for around 8
hours and 20 minutes as well. Unless you are super intense this laptop should
be able to get you thorughout a day of light use, no gaming, no video editing, just word
documents, TV, and web browsing. I didnt know what to expect from the performance
of this laptop, its definitely going to be better than an atom processor, but how far
is the questino. So surprisingly in basic tasks like Chrome,
documents, oepning and closing light apps, the Celeron is as fast as the
Core M. there is a 128GB M.2 SSD by foresee and a 32GB eMMC as well, i’m not sure why
there’s both, but windows is installed on the SSD. so surprisingly i was able to GIMP
or photoshop very well, anythig that wasn’t applying filters which
is cpu intensive was pretty much no lag at all. and most impressive of all i was able
to edit 1080p video using davinci resolve, exporting it took super long but i was so
impressed that i could edit video like that. gaming wise the celeron was able to game quite
a bit better than the atom. I wa sable to run Dota2 at around 25-30fps
at 1080p on lowest which is impressive. i was able to run dota2 at around 40fps at
1080p on lowest which is impressive. i was able to run dota2 at around 40fps at
720p which was impressive. i could also play call of duty at 720p at
around 25-30fps as well. I ran a couple of benchmarks, i ran geekbench
and it got a pretty good single and multicore score, cinebench was not that great at aroun
125cb, and octane got average scores as well. But all these scores are stil way above waht
the atom gets. overall i’m quite impressed with the speed
of the celeron, it definitely outpaces the atom by quite a bit. connecitvity wise the usb ports can power
a portable hard drive with some decent copy speeds as well. Overall the celeron version of the voyo vbook
v3 is a good laptop. Sure its heavy and kind of big, and the audio
isn’ the loudest either, but in exchange you get some real decent performance out of the
celeron and some decent battery life as well. I must say that this apollo lake celeron for
light users is for al intents and purposes a core m processor there is very little difference
well apart from 4K in chrome. However, the biggest issue i have is the price,
its $400 which is pretty much the price of some Core M devices on sale, which at that
price you might as well buy a Core M tablet or laptop, but once the price goes down, it
will be a great option. Thanks so much for watching, be sure to like
and subscribe and i’ll see you in the next one.

    So what you are saying is that this one is better than the Atom Voyo V3, but the M3 Voyo flagship V3 is still better than this one, right?

    Hi, good review, i need a precius information, could you see if the ram is really upgradable to 8GB as gearbest says? beacause in the gearbest's article says "up to 8GB" instead in the comments i read that gearbests wrote that isn't upgradable, so could you verify it for me?
    it should be also upgradable with an ssd up to 512gb.
    Let me know, bye

    Enjoyed your review. Very honest and to the point. Not a single wasted second.
    One question – is this laptop fanless? Hate my Surface Pro fan sound anytime I do anything other then Windows login.

    some suggestions:
    1: You speak way too fast, you don´t need to hurry.
    2: The music in the background while speaking makes it hard to listen. Should someone listen to the music or what you´re saying? people should listen to you, right?
    3: Do compare apples to apples. Not everything is comparable to a Mac book! compare things, that are in the same range. at least price wise.
    4: Make a clear statement!! It is not bad – but it is also not good > this means nothing. You can better do a 1-10 range. e.g. Keyboard is 5 compared to 10 if 10 is best e.g. on something anyone know. In this regard a Mac Book can be used.

    NON COMPRATE ASSOLUTAMENTE QUESTO NOTEBOOK, IN PARTICOLARE DA LINDA'S TABLET STORE SU ALIEXPRESS!
    Io ho acquistato questa versione:
    VOYO VBook V3 Ultrabook 13.3 Touch e Pen, Intel Core M3-6Y30 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Arancione
    Il notebook, dopo pochissimo (ma veramente, pochissimo) tempo, non si è più avviato.
    Pare che questa schifezza, presenti diversi problemi irrisolvibili sulla scheda madre e nemmeno l'azienda produttrice risponderà MAI alle vostre richieste di assistenza.
    Io ci ho provato in tutti i modi, ma non mi hanno mai risposto e men che mai quel delinquente truffatore di LINDA'S TABLET STORE che me lo ha venduto su ALIEXPRESS (chiede sempre di postare video che dimostrano il problema, che solo lui o lei non riesce ad aprire, chissà come mai!).
    Quindi, se non volete gettare tanto denaro inutilmente, STATE ALLA LARGA DA QUESTO NOTEBOOK, qualsiasi versione intendiamo acquistare!!!
    Non vi fate in onore dalle presentazioni del sito mvoyo.com, perché NON RISPONDONO MAI A NESSUN TIPO DI RICHIESTA, CREDETEMI!

    DO NOT BUY THIS NOTEBOOK ABSOLUTELY, IN PARTICULAR FROM LINDA'S TABLET STORE ON ALIEXPRESS! I bought this version: VOYO VBook V3 Ultrabook 13.3 Touch and Pen, Intel Core M3-6Y30 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Orange The notebook, after very little (but really, very little) time, has not started. It seems that this crap, present several unsolvable problems on the motherboard and even the manufacturer will NEVER answer your requests for assistance. I tried in every way, but they never replied to me ever since that crook of LINDA'S TABLET STORE who sold it to me on ALIEXPRESS (he always asks to post videos that demonstrate the problem, that only he or she does not manages to open, who knows why!). So, if you do not want to throw so much money in vain, BE LARGE FROM THIS NOTEBOOK, any version we intend to buy !!! Do not honor the presentations of the mvoyo.com website, because they NEVER MEET ANY TYPE OF REQUEST, BELIEVE IT!
