The FNF iFive Pro 2 is a nicely-specd tablet PC with a 2K screen resolution and so much more. This device is a sort of elder sibling to the previously reviewed iFive Mini 4S. The iFive Pro 2 looks a lot like the Mini 4S with some differences including a bigger screen and a larger RAM size. Let’s take a look at how this tablet PC compares with other tablets, shall we?
FNF iFive Pro 2 Design & Display
First off, the design language of the iFive Pro 2 speaks greatly of the manufacturer’s aesthetic values. With the iFive Pro 2, you get an ultra-thin metal body made of aluminum. This makes the tablet feel comfortable on the hands. And with a 7.7mm thin body weighing 500 grams, the iFive Pro 2 is both sleek and light for its size. Still on the design, there is a textured leather back cover on the iFive Pro 2.
At the front of this tablet is a 9.7-inch Retina display. The screen resolution is same as the iFive Mini 4S at 2048 x 1536 pixels. This gives a pixel density of 264PPI and the frame rate can reach 60fps, which is great. The screen isn’t fully laminated as that found on the smaller Mini 4S.
Surprisingly, there is a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button sitting under the screen. This is probably the first tablet that I know that has a fingerprint scanner. And for connecting a keyboard, you get a magnetic docking port at the bottom of the iFive Pro 2 – in landscape mode.
Hardware, OS & Performance
The iFive Pro 2 uses the same chipset as the Mini 4S. You get the Rockchip RK3288 quad-core processor with a Mali-T764 GPU. There’s also 4gigs of RAM – 50% more than the Mini 4S’s – and the same 32GB ROM that came with the Mini 4S, which can also be expanded via a microSD card.
With this device, you also get four great speakers, which are better than those found on the Mini 4S.
The software running on the FNF iFive Pro 2 is called “Phoenix OS” which is based on Android 6.01 Marshmallow. This OS offers some pretty exciting features including a multi-window app support allowing you to run two or more apps side-by-side on the same screen.
It seems like the iFive Pro never stops to dazzle with its great features. This time we take a look at its cameras. On the front of this tablet is a (massive) 5MP sensor – massive because this is a tablet PC. Then you get another massive 13MP rear camera with auto-focus and flash. These cameras should be great for you photography needs and video recording.
The battery capacity on this tablet is 7800mAh, which should deliver about a day’s usage on light use. You get a 5V/3A battery charger and a type-C USB port for faster charging.
