By now, you hopefully know that our quest as a website is to find the best value-for-money electronic prodcuts.
During our product hunt, we came across iFive Mini 4s. This tablet, which has gathered great reviews along the internet world, is made by a new brand called FNF.
Here’s the deal:
The main selling point of this tablet is the 7.9 inch screen that has a resolution of 2048 x 1536, which is a great resolution.
Let’s take a look at the complete package first, before we analyze the tablet.
iFive Mini 4s Specs
|Operating System||Android 6.0.1|
|Processor (CPU)||RK3288 at 1.6GHz|
|Graphics Card||ARM Mail-T764|
|Display||7.9 inch 2048 x 1536 IPS, 10-Point screen|
|Expandable Storage||Micro SD (up to 128G)|
iFive Mini 4s Display
One of the most important aspects of a tablet is it’s screen.
This tablet right here which is on the 100€ / 130$ mark certainly doesn’t dissapoint us. FNF iFive Mini 4s has a retina display with aresolution of 2048 by 1536. The IPS glossy panel has great colors and very good viewing angles.
One thing we usually see on lower budget tablets is a big gap between the glass and the display itself, which kind of ruins the “viewing” experience. This tablet doesn’t have that, which is a big plus.
As far as the size of the device goes, it’s almost identical to the iPad Mini.
iFive Mini 4s CPU / Storage
In the internals of the FNF iFive Mini 4S we will find a Rockchip RK3288 SoC. That’s a quad-core processor with it’s four cores clocked at 1.6GHz.
The performance is more than fine for the majority of times. I was able to web-browse, watch YouTube at a 1440p resolution, and edit files in Microsoft Word without any problems. Lagging may happen if you decide to use many apps simultaneously. As long as you don’t do extreme multitasking you will be perfectly fine.
Youtube playback was really smooth. Videos and media in general, look amazing on this screen. I also tested Kodi and it run with no problems.
Let’s switch our focus to gaming ,which is something that concerns a lot of you.
It runs all the games perfectly fine.
The games which were tested on iFive Mini 4S are: Asphalt Xtreme, Modern Combat 5, Dead Trigger 2, Rayman Adventures, GTA Vice City (at its highest graphics settings), Respawnables.
The experience was flaweless. I didn’t face any issues while playing
iFive Mini 4s Camera
The tablet has two camers. One located on the back, and one located on the front. The main camera on the back has a resolution of 8 megapixels. On the front, we’re getting a 2-megapixel camera. You shouldn’t expect a top-quality camera, and that is to be expected, considering the low price of the device.
However, the main camera, is doing it’s job very decently.
iFive Mini 4s Battery Life
Regarding the battery, it’s not great and not bad either. It stands on the middle ground.
Inside the tablet you will find a 4800mAh Lithium Polymer battery.
The amount of hours the battery will last you is very subjective, depending on your usage. My results were the following.
In my battery test, I got a runtime of 8 hours. My battery tests are always the same. I’m running an HD video over and over again – at 50 percent brightness with wi-fi activated.
iFive Mini 4s Connectivity
We get a MicroSD card slot, a micro USB port and a headphone jack.
Sadly, there is no USB type C port.
This tablet supports OTG though, so you can basically plug in any USB stick and a iFive Mini 4S will be able to read it.
iFive Mini 4s Build Quality
Moving to the design and build quality of this tablet this is one of the things that I’m impressed along with the screen.
Tablets frame is made out of plastic even though it looks like it’s made out of metal. It’s an imitation of brushed aluminum.
On the backplate we have glossy surface on the bottom and on the top which looks really great and adds to the appearance of the tablet.
On the sides we get a metal alloy frame which gives the device a solid grip.
The volume buttons are also made out of metal.
iFive Mini 4s Conclusion
Overall this is a really well-built tablet.
At this price point, the tablet offers an excellent display. Other brands would charge this device’s worth (130$) just for the display.
We also get good build quality, and great performance.
