Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph Unboxing, First Impressions




Cherry Mobile, under their sub-brand Cubix, has updated their convertible line of dual-boot devices. This is the Cubix Morph, a tablet bundled with a keyboard cover that runs both Android and Windows. It was just made available about a few days ago and here’s our initial impression of the tablet fresh from retail shelves.

The package of the Cubix Morph is pretty standard. You only get the unit that’s already wrapped with its keyboard cover, a DC-in charger, and a few pamphlets. There’s no micro-USB cable and a travel charger included but rest assured, it can be charged through its micro-USB port as well.

The tablet itself is fairly large due to its 10.1-inch IPS LCD sporting a WXGA resolution. That’s 1280 x 800 pixels in a 16:10 aspect. Clearly, a thick bezel borders the device although it helps in handling. A 2MP camera and an LED indicator hide above the display while a capacitive home is placed below.

The right side of the tablet doesn’t have any ports or buttons.

The left side houses a number of ports namely the 3.5mm headphone jack, DC-in, full-size USB 3.0 port, mini HDMI, and a micro-USB port for charging and data connectivity. A flap hides a microSD card slot.

The top of the tablet has the volume rocker and power/lock button while the bottom end has the Pogo pins and connecting dock for the cover.

The back features a circular pattern to the center with a printed Windows logo. A 2MP rear shooter is present up top while down below is a pair of stereo speakers. The battery sealed inside is rated at 6600mAh.

As for the build of the tablet, it is cheap as it gets. It’s made out entirely out of plastic with annoying creaks when lifted from the tablet.
Even the display doesn’t have any scratch-resistant glass on it for protection. Although, the suede fabric of the keyboard cover is just pleasant to hold and carry around. The keys are cramped but is reasonably pleasant to type on when you get used to it.

The Cubix Morph is powered by an Intel Z8300 quad-core processor with Intel HD Graphics. There’s 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 64GB via microSD. So far, everything has been fairly smooth on the Morph, both on Android 5.1 Lollipop and Windows 10. We’re still installing updates to make sure everything is refreshed before concluding about the final performance.

Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph specifications:
10.1-inch IPS LCD @ 1280 x 800 pixels, 149ppi
1.44GHz Intel Z8300 quad-core processor
Intel HD Graphics

    What the hell, Yugatech? Since around a week ago, every time I try to touch any part of the screen on your home page, I keep getting redirected to a particular advertiser’s website. It happens when I’m on my iPad Pro but not when I’m on my computer or phone. It’s as if there’s an invisible floating ad in front of it. It takes trial and error to just get to an article. Maybe, 10 to 15 times of touching and zooming all over the place. Never mind the blatant attempt at shoving ads in our faces; I understand. But this is rendering the use of your website unusable while on my tablet, and I reckon the same thing is happening to other people too.

    boss, na-resolved na ba yung issue na iba yung quoted spec na nasa yugatech at iba yung nasa lazada?

    “1.33ghz Intel Z3735D Quad Core Processor” on lazada
    vs
    “1.44GHz Intel Z8300 quad-core processor” on yugatech

  3. wilde says:

    Is the processor really Z8300? Because in Lazada it says Z3735D.

    Note that unlike the latter, Z8300 can play HEVC videos.
