As an introduction to this analysis
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.Some computers have power, others have more basic features.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
In short, depending on your needs you will see if this model suits you.
EZpad 6 adapted to surf the internet?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. With this EZpad 6, the company wanted to design a very basic model. Even if the material is not of a very high quality, with plastic materials (at the level of the hull), the components and the internal circuits of the machine are still designed by Jumper; a manufacturer who has been offering laptops for several years already. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
With a 11.6 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Intel Atom E3950. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 4 Gb of memory. Chances are you’ll have to add some memory over time. Your computer will work better and longer.
Most other competing computers have more storage space. If you want to have your holiday photos locally, you’ll soon reach the limit of 192 Gb. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Last point about the autonomy. the EZpad 6 can work 4 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the EZpad 6 is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
Is EZpad 6 okay to watch videos ?
Jumper has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the EZpad 6; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
This small model is equipped with a thumb screen 11.6, in 1920×1080, and a good quality of colours. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.32 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it EZpad 6 has good components: board and integrated speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Intel Atom E3950 that is several years old now. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
With Intel HD Graphics 500, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 4 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. Much better than most of the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
For multimedia use in travel or on-the-go mode, this EZpad 6 may not be suitable. With its autonomy of 4 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.
The EZpad 6 to use while travelling.
An intermediate model that can be taken along on an occasional basisEZpad 6. We have tested it in several configurations : For travel, packed in a suitcase, in home-to-work mode, as part of a family weekend, or simply to go from the living room to the kitchen. Here’s what it turned out : What makes this one of the best laptops to carry is the balance between weight, size and the set of components chosen by Jumper.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It’s one of the best in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. The 11.6 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
The processor Intel Atom E3950 is inferior to other competitive products.
Note that like all manufacturers, Jumper is optimistic about the autonomy of this EZpad 6. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of Jumper; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Battery life is worse than the competitors, with only 4 hours before the laptop has to be plugged back into the mains.
Thought for faster booting and calculations, and storage, this laptop has 2 hard disks; one type SSD, accompanied by another standard, of 192 Gb in total. This double disk technology allows to record the operating system on the principle of the usb key, and to store personal data on a standard disk but more resistant in time. The time it takes the laptop to start and leave the sleep mode is ultra-fast. For those who want more space, you will then have the option of a cloud account.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. Its 11.6 inches screen is so compact that it’s almost the size of a large tablet.
The connector part is very interesting, with 4 inputs available. It is thus at the top of the ranking, compared with other laptops on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
In brief, this EZpad 6 can be considered useful when you decide to travel.
The EZpad 6- the right model for audio or video editing ?
For non-professional use for audio or video editing, this EZpad 6 may be fine. It is correctly equipped on the processor level for speed and RAM for task management; Of course, it is not at the level of what is done for professionals, but it responds well anyway.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Atom E3950. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 192 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
Valuable flash memory via the SSD for fast program execution, and a standard disk for storing personal data. Here, the laptop advantageously has a good space of storage. This model offers the best possibilities with a storage space of 192 Gb. Jumper offers a computer among the best in its category. The short film scenes you will have created will be stored locally without any problems. And if necessary, via its USB port, you can transfer files at high speed to external drives.
As with most laptops, don’t expect incredible battery life (4 hours). This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. Maybe the next model will be better off.
On the connection side, the EZpad 6i s equipped with USB 3 technology. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
You will also be able to use it every day to browse the internet. A sensible choice for a product in this price range.
The EZpad 6- the right model to play with?
Some laptops with sufficient performance, the right processors and the latest graphics cards can afford to gamble. With this EZpad 6, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. Clearly, Jumper has done nothing here to meet that purpose.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Our tests have shown that for Jumper this computer is not intended for playing video games. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
On the question of hard drive size, this model is not very good.With 192 Gb it EZpad 6is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.
For Wi-Fi technology, Jumper decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 1.32 Kg.
For autonomy, 4 hours, this model is worse than most other laptops.
In short, if you want a fun gaming experience, choose another model than this EZpad 6 one. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.
Is the EZpad 6 adapted to office automation ?
Access on efficiency, this EZpad 6 is part of the laptops provided for office automation. It corresponds to a good quality computer.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It is equipped with Windows 10.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. A weight of 1.32 Kg, which makes this computer one of the best in the lightest category.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
This EZpad 6 eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. But at the same time, the light intensity is low enough so as not to tire the eyes in the dark.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 192 Gb. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
Ultimately, this EZpad 6 is an intermediate choice. The middle groud for recurring use in office automation mode.
EZpad 6 the right choice for the right use
In the end, our analysis will have shown that it EZpad 6 is disappointing whatever the uses. Its aging technology will make its use disappointing fairly quickly.
Simply put, we were not convinced for uses such as :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– playing video games
This laptop is average for the following uses:
– travel use
– making audio and video editing
– office tasks
