Design & Display of Primebook 4G Laptop
The Primebook 4G Android laptop, designed specifically for students, is a device that aims to provide a portable e-learning solution at an affordable price.
Powered by the MediaTek MT8788 processor and running on PrimeOS, an Android-based OS with a desktop interface, the laptop promises to deliver a smooth user experience.
We tested the Primebook 4G laptop with the 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage iteration for 15 days and here is our review of the device.
The all-plastic body of the laptop comes in matte black, giving it a professional look reminiscent of older-generation notebooks from Lenovo and Dell.
The device’s build quality is decent, and although there is a fair bit of squeaking when opening and closing the clamshell laptop, overall it feels well put together.
The laptop features an 11.6-inch HD screen with thick bezels. It is lightweight and easy to carry around.
On the right side, it has a USB port, a charging point, and a mini-HDMI slot, while on the left side, it has another USB port, an SD card slot, a memory card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The speakers are located on the bottom of the device with the 2-megapixel webcam placed in the center of the screen’s top bezel.
Video quality, though limited to 720p, is decent and struggles only when higher-quality content is played. The 1366X768 HD panel is plenty bright with decent color accuracy.
The display tends to get glitchy when used for streaming online content for extended periods. However, we are not sure whether this was due to the display itself or the processor.
The 2-megapixel webcam was unimpressive, the video output lacked details, and the overall quality is comparable to that of a feature phone.
Notable Features of Primebook 4G Laptop
The Primebook comes with a 12V AC adapter for charging and a pair of Boat wired headphones. Here are the 5 primary features of the Primebook 4G Laptop:
With its MediaTek processor, the Primebook is able to manage daily tasks with ease. The laptop comes with access to the Android store, and users can install apps from outside sources as well.
The laptop manages well when used for day-to-day tasks like writing reports, browsing the internet, and watching content on video streaming platforms.
4G Connectivity & SD Card
The SD card slot is useful for transferring data and is able to transfer files at a convenient speed. Combined with the 4G connectivity, the device is suitable to use during travel or in outdoor environments.
The device’s 4G connectivity is a notable feature, allowing it to make phone calls and ensure continued connectivity.
The connection quality is good when used in an area with strong reception. However, we did find the inclusion of calling features in a laptop odd, especially since the device is aimed at young students.
Primebook OS – Operating System
Built on Android, the OS of the Primebook has a familiar look and feel. And even though the physical device is a clamshell laptop, the OS at times seems to be more suited to a smartphone than a laptop.
The device is referred to as a Phone, rather than a laptop in the settings menu of the OS.
Keyboard & Trackpad
The keyboard, though springy, provides good feedback when typing. We did not face any problems even when using it for extended periods of time.
The same, however, cannot be said about the trackpad, which struggled after long periods of use.
The pointer would disappear from the screen, and we would have to wait for a good two or three minutes before it came back; otherwise, we had to restart the device.
Price & Availability of Primebook 4G Laptop
The Primebook 4G had an initial price of ₹16,990. The device is currently available for purchase on Flipkart at a discounted rate of ₹14,990 as part of an introductory offer.
The laptop is ideal for a variety of educational uses, including academic study, career training, and exam prep. It is also lightweight and portable.
Primebook and Flipkart have collaborated to offer students more accessibility to laptops.
They are providing various benefits such as Cost EMI for up to 24 months and discounts worth up to ₹12,000 for new customers.
