Turn Your Phone Into A Touchscreen PC – Vinpok Split Review

Turn Your Phone Into A Touchscreen PC – Vinpok Split Review


hi guys Chris here so I have something
interesting today this is a 15.6 inch IPS panel that is anti glare so has
matte coating on it but it also supports touch and a very interesting panel
because it’s light it’s portable it is powered by Type C and has a type C input
it also has our 2 x 1 watt speakers on here and even HDMI ends so this can be
used with a lot of different devices that can be used with pcs Mac books that
it can even be used with for example PlayStation fours and even the camera
that I am recording on I could be using a portable screen like this so this one
here is from then pot it’s called the split let’s check it out in greater
detail inside the box you have the screen by itself and I’ll just check the
weight of that it’s 548 grams and of course you get then the type C 2 USB
cable that you’re going to need to power with some devices you get a mini HDMI
cable and then the type C 2 type-c cable that you’ll be using to connect with
most pcs and with mobile phones I’ve also picked up the magnetic case which I
highly recommend it’s a thin case that covers it and also
acts as a stand and that puts the total travel weight at one point zero three
kilos so there’s nothing on the back of the screen here it has this carbon like
fiber design to it but it’s not carbon fiber the case does sits on the back
there with magnets and you can fold it around like that to completely protect
the screen and this is still reasonably light and it’s thin to just under 10
millimeters and getting started as easy just simply open it up flip it around
and it has a magnet in the top here so it’s going to hold it there and this is
your kickstand for it so similar to the way tablets are set up and that’s about
the maximum angle right about there and get it back a little bit further and
that’s rubber here so it’s going to grip onto a table and you can press against
that without it suddenly just collapsing – which is good on the left hand side we
have the power on standby button right here we have the control a little
joystick so this is up and down and it presses in
and that’s to control the on screen display which I will get onto later on
the on screen menu there and we have the type C port in so this is needed to
power if your device does not output enough from the type C port on the right
hand side and then you have to use this to power the screen
it supports power delivery to specs so it’s going to run off five volts right
up to 20 volts and on the right is where all your inputs are so we have a micro
HDMI 1.4 spec port there we have the type C port this one supports data video
in and charging as well which is really good so it will output charge to keep
your mobile phone your tablet or your laptop charged at the same time which is
great and then a 3.5 millimeter headphone port here which is great for
perhaps say Mac users that a lacking ports that you don’t need an additional
dongle because you can output the sound through that along the bottom you will
find either side two rubber feet and this tiny little slot here that is in
fact a speaker so we’ve got two one watt speakers down here I’ll give you a
sample of them now they’re not amazing sounding but they do actually sound a
little bit better than some of the tablets and take our review so the calibration op the screen on the
standard preset is actually very good only the whites are slightly off just
leaning a little bit towards the blue side there it’s now more of a neutral
white once I’ve calibrated it but for most people out of the box calibration
is actually quite good and normally you don’t see this with some manufacturers
it can be completely off so it’s great to see that they have it properly
calibrated one area that is disappointing however is the color gamut
coverage so they do claim that it has 89% srgb
but with my testing here and with the panel that I have on my unit I’m only
getting 63 percent of srgb color gamut coverage here and Adobe RGB this is 47%
in TSC as 45 so the brightness on my panel doesn’t come up to spec will be a
claim so they claimed around 280 Lux and this one here is only about 160 Lux
which is well short I do have it on a hunt percent brightness which by the way
is actually the default brightness you can see so 100 right here it’s always
said on 100 you can tone that down of course using the little controller there
so the screen is touch and if you’re using a USB type-c USB 3.1 device which
I’m using at the moment which is the jumper easy book x1 then i have touch
now windows already has the driver for this II just plug it in and it will
install the driver and you can see right now touch is working now it has 10 touch
points the screen supports that I have tested this and it does work well
sometimes I have to tap again now that could be because I’m not on the most
powerful chipset that might have something to do with this so you can see
here like scrolling and things like that with Windows that’s all working well the
Start menu and all in all it acts like a normal touchscreen would so this is
probably just a little bit slower because I’m not running the most
powerful as chipset I’m only running 4 gigabytes of RAM here but it’s just to
demonstrate that it’s gonna it’s gonna run fine
on even low powered hardware like this so the only real issue here with me with
the screen the brightness could definitely be a bit bitter but indoors
it’s perfectly fine indoors it looks great and like the fact that it is matte
coated as well and not glossy so you don’t have any problems with the flick
and it’s a typical IPS so the viewing angles they are perfectly fine you’re
not gonna have any issues with that being an IPS panel one of the main
reasons for getting a screen like this would be what I’m doing right now so
you’ve got dual displays and it’s a lot easier to then multitask you can be a
lot more productive doing this now I’ve got touch support on both of these
devices here and of course it’s gonna be working just fine as you can see right
there now if your device doesn’t have a type C
port then you will still have touch with the windows you just need to plug in the
type-c cable to the port right here on the right hand side and then once the
drivers load its touch and you plug in of course the HDMI cable onto the right
hand side as I showed you at the start this of course right here is where the
power goes into it or that type C port so it depends on what cables you have
how you’re gonna set it up and you’ll be able to run this with touch and you can
even connect it up to things like in the Nintendo switch PlayStation 4 Xbox
anything really and just run it as a standalone HDMI portable display then
and you can then use a portable power bank to power the screen or you can just
plug it into an adapter so you can have a powered app they’re going to type C so
that’s going to run five volts right up to 20 volts there and it does support
power delivery and that type C as mentioned another use too is you can use
this as a screen for your mobile phone that supports if it does desktop mode so
for example right here I have my samsung galaxy s 9 plus I plugged in the type C
to type C cable normally when you’re traveling you will
have your charger as well so you plug that into the other end to power the
screen because the phone by itself will not actually be it doesn’t have enough
wattage the output from the type C port to power it it’s working and even touch
which surprised me I thought touch mine at work and it actually does run pretty
good as you can see and if you get yourself a Bluetooth keyboard and even a
bluetooth mouse pair that up a course with your phone and you’ve got yourself
then a laptop that you can use when you’re traveling and because it’s such a
thin and relatively light screen too you’re not carrying around that extra
bulk if you wanted to do some emails and do some proper work and whatnot through
there then that is all possible as you can see
here I’ve just loaded up my website tech tablets I’m able to add articles it does
have a file manager too of course with Android and the phone and if you’ve got
a far way the mate 20 you’ve got the p20 between hiepro mate 20x it’s all going
to be working as well with this so the touch support with that one should also
work I think it’s just a standard Android driver that’s using to power the screen
here so this gives you a little bit of added productivity with your phone and
it’s hard to see bit right down there you can see it is charging my mobile
phone as well so when I’m using my samsung galaxy s 9 plus here with Dex
it’s going to be charged at the same time so I’m not losing any battery which
is great so the on-screen display your controls here for the panel it’s pretty
straightforward here you can control the brightness contrast black levels you’ve
got different other things that you can tweak in here as well your colors so the
one that I always go for this is the user one that’s the one I have measured
and right now you just got some settings here for the actual menu itself so you
can see the transparency of it and to time it out a few other settings here
even an HDR mode and this right here is quite handy so we’ve got a blue light
filter on here so if you’re using this late at night
you just press in by the way with a button to actually make it work and you
can start to tweak that up you can see it’s removing now the blue light so then
poke here the split is a very practical screen is so much you can do with this
screen of course you can run it with anything that has a display out and it’s
via HDMI so you can run your ps4 and Nintendo’s Switch you can even use this
as a large monitor screen for your camera for example at the camera I’m
recording on I could have the HDMI going out into this to use it as a monitor
there to have a look and see if everything’s in focus and are you able
to do that so it’s got many uses it’s going to work with Mac OS it works for
Samsung DeX’s your Huawei phones other phones that support HDMI out and the
disk top mode which was really great so you could perhaps check this throw this
into a bag and have your phone there and if you bring along a Bluetooth keyboard
and a mouse then you can use it like a laptop like a touch laptop or even
tablet and it just makes it quite practical yes you’re going to have the
cable there now most people would be carrying around their
type C charger with them so that’s not too much of an issue that he can plug it
in I would like to see a version perhaps where the battery on there that you
could at least get a few hours of battery you see didn’t have to bring
another cable if you didn’t have happen to have one with you but I don’t think
it’s too much of an issue because it keeps it slimmer you’re not going to
have any problems in the future of course with batteries going bad and
things like that what I would really like to see more
than a battery as I believe that it would be great to have on this a USB
port so one USB port along here means that I will be able to plug in a
pendrive or something when I have it connected up to my phone and access that
perhaps plug in a Logitech wireless receiver for my keyboard for my mouse
would make this even more practical hopefully in the next version they can
add that so the screen is great it’s good for indoor use but it doesn’t have
the same color gamut that they claimed so they claim and then it has an sRGB of
89% and it’s nowhere near that coming out around about 63% the brightness as
well it tops out at around about 160 lux on my unit I’ve got it turned down to
about 50% brightness at the moment you can see here and indoors it’s perfectly
fine and even in sunlight you’re still going to be able to read it so that’s
not really too much of an issue however if you are a professional you’re gonna
be using this as a portable second monitor on your laptop you’re doing
color work then I don’t know is that 64% srgb color gamut coverage going to be
enough for you now this is selling for around about 200 us and I do believe
that you can get various different uses out it so the price I think it’s
justified considering out there on the market there is really nothing like this
and I’ve been looking for a long time for a type c portable screen with this
kind of features but also the nice modern look with the slim bezels so all
in all it does get a thumb a thumbs up from me I do like it it’s not perfect
and hopefully that VIN pop they can add a USB port and perhaps give us just a
slightly better panel and this in the future one that’s more closer to their
claim spec thanks a lot for watching this review I hope you did like it and
if you do did like it then please subscribe to the channel and I do hope
to see you back with more up-and-coming reviews bye for now

100 thoughts on “Turn Your Phone Into A Touchscreen PC – Vinpok Split Review”

  1. I can't wait for accessory displays to become more common. Anyone remember the Motorola Droid's laptop docks? All the China laptops that are reviewed on this channel have great 11-13" 1080 IPS displays so I'd love to see them used in accessory displays like the one in this review. Add on magnetic keyboards and you would only need to buy a phone from now on instead a phone, tablet, and laptop.

  2. How if the phone is oneplus? Is the screen also can do the same thing? Can you try and let me know the result. Thanks

  3. Use double-sided tape for a battery pack and phone holder on the back; do you then end up with a bedtime tablet for videos?

  4. 11:29
    No batteries is a "Pros" for me because I don't need to find the replacement for the battery, and I can easily find power bank on any electronic store.

  5. I would like to now if there is any input latency or input when playing console games. They also say that you don't need the dock for the Nintendo Switch with this monitor and that it wont damage the system. I would like to see tests done on these things.

  6. i think that gadgets like these are already on the market and of better design, which in this case i find it boresome and laughable.

  7. Great stuff. And Windows has drivers for everything 🙂 You can plugin a space ship via USB and it will work 😀

  8. I wonder if there is a case that can hold Bluetooth keyboard the phone that also include the battery that's slots in the screen like a Microsoft surface.

  9. Hi, What year ths display came out? And which one is better compare to Asus mb16ac? please need your opinion on ths before I buy?

  10. I'm confused, he talks like you can buy this, it's a crowdfunding project, so it's not guaranteed that this will even be made. Not to knock crowdfunding but I was actually interested in buying this right away to test it out. He never once references Indiegogo at all throughout the presentation. And Indiegogo does not have the protections that Kickstarter has either.

    I would actually take this whole thing with a big grain of salt…….

  11. Apple will call it iScreen. Charge over a thousand dollars for it, call it a first time revolution, and all iFanboys will go "Yeah!"

  12. With the prices of tablets and budget laptops nowadays this doesn't really make it worth it at all. And the note9 can already use Dex for a computer like experience and they introduced a full version of Linux that's still in beta

  13. I was actually considering buying this over the Gechic 1503i
    I need a touchscreen for my car and was looking for the best I could find.
    Looking at the color quality and the lux I'm actually glad I bumped on this video.

  14. this monitor cost 229$, the price of a 1440p 120refresh rate monitor.

    this is cool and everything but with its price tag i rather have the the asus portable monitor at 220$.

  15. I thought this video is about making your phone become a touch pad…just like laptop touch pad…..then connected to non touch screen lcd display

  16. I don't understand why no one has just made a high end tablet with a HDMI/USB C input, that way it does everything this does, but it has its own battery and brains, also makes it useful beyond a basic screen.

  17. Scammers. Be aware the campaign is a big scam. They got 23k+ backers and shipped 2000 products only. Campaign said everyone will get product in late December…its February and more than 21k backers just go an update that mid March they'll send another 1k. At this rate any newcomer will get their monitor in 2022. Stay away… you've been warned

  18. are there anymore tablets like this or the slidenjoy? something that serves as a dual screen solution thats portable or used for productivity?

  19. I like this and am considering getting one to an extended display and portable monitor. But as far as using it with my phone and BT keyboard as a laptop…. Nah, I rather just take a real laptop at that point.

  20. ты продажная шлюшка капитализма! красные найдут тебя!) вопросы- пиши в личку!

  21. When using Samsung Dex connected phone, will there be touch screen keyboard? Or you still need an external physical keyboard. So far I have watched a few videos and didn't see any demo on touch screen keyboard. Please advise.

  22. Where can i buy this monitor? Oficial webstie says "Pre Order", when will be release for international cargo? Some news!?

  23. DON’T BUY!! Here’s why! Just figured I’d comment and warn people…I am the type of person that NEVER leaves reviews but I need to leave this one. BEWARE before you buy, a lot of the review videos on the internet are affiliates trying to sell you. The Vinpok split flat out is not good. The quality of the screen isn’t glass which is what it is but I received a monitor that didn’t work…I am one 3 months…YES, 3 F*cking months of back and forth with Vinpk to get a refund and they keep dancing around the questions I ask. I have tons of screenshots from them if you would like to see proof…feel free to message me! But I HIGHLY recommend NOT buying this monitor! I AM PISSED! The worst customer support I have ever been involved with.

  24. April 3rd 2019 product is finally delivered (having been promised in December.
    April 4th I send an email about the flickering screen as the screen was faulty when it arrived.
    I sent videos as requested. I bought new cables as requested.
    I sent the screen back as requested.
    14 days AFTER they received it, they told me they would not replace it or refund the money as it was damaged (and clearly would not work at all with that amount of damage)
    The first picture shows the box I sent it back in undamaged
    The second picture showed the black packaging around the screen.
    I DID NOT SEND THE SCREEN BACK IN THAT BLACK PACKAGING.
    The image is NOT the screen I returned.
    The screen I sent had NO EXTERNAL DAMAGE
    This image is NOT (repeat NOT) the screen I sent
    Apart from the fact this was NOT my screen, two problems with their story:
    The videos I sent showed clearly that there was no external damage.
    It took them 14 days to notice the damage that the picture shows???
    They are fraudulently claiming damage to refuse a refund or replacement

  25. It is now almost 4 months since I first reported that the screen flickered and it became unusable.
    It was more than a month since it was sent back at their request and it arrived at the destination they specified.
    It is three weeks since they sent a fraudulent picture of a different screen saying it was damaged.
    It is two weeks since they said that was a mistake but offered no explanation
    It is two weeks since they said on their Facebook page:
    “Since you has bought our split, we will definitely give you a satisfactory solution which just takes a few time to handle. Do not worry”
    It is 10 days from when they said they received it for testing but with no explanation as why it only took -3 days to go to Hong Kong from the US, but almost three weeks to go across Hong Kong.
    It is 6 days from when they said
    "Yes, it is reasonable that you deserve a working screen"
    I have heard NOTHING since but every time I get something I am told to be patient and not to worry followed by something along the lines of ‘have a nice day’
    All I ever I wanted was a working screen but after all this time I would prefer a refund.
    Tell me that is being unreasonable.

  26. I paid for the Vinpok Split screen in October and delivery was promised for December. It arrived in April, faulty and I reported it. For the next two months I did everything I was asked to do and then in June sent it back, as requested. It is now almost August and I have nothing apart from false promises of a solution or a replacement and being told to be patient.

    So who is being unreasonable?

    The customer who paid for the screen and then complied with every request, sending videos of it connected to multiple computers and power sources using various cables, including a brand new one I purchase as requested?

    Or

    The company that has obfuscated and failed to deliver having made numerous promises, none of which have been kept?

    The customer who was promised a solution and a replacement but now has no screen, no replacement let alone a refund?

    Or the company that has promised all those things but has failed to deliver on any of them, namely Vinpok?

  27. I eventually received what appears to be a new Vinpok Split in mid-August, after it was sent back at their request) in early June. It arrived yesterday and thus far seems to be working well. Indiegogo was no help at all despite repeated emails to them. All I got was, I should contact the supplier and then a comment that glad they were responding. I must add this was when I informed them that I had received the fraudulent photo of a different damaged screen.

  28. No offence meant to TechTablets, who are an awesome channel with great reviews!
    But be advised: This is a TOTAL SCAM. Please do not buy anything from Vinpok, please check their Indiegogo campaign to see the thousands of us that are still waiting for meaningful contact over a year later. All last 'updates' for several months have basically been "Please wait for an upcoming update!", despite having raised MILLIONS of dollars above their goal and being actively promoted by Indiegogo. The apparent 'lucky few' who have received screens have complained of major faults or completely non-working screens. There are also other extremely dubiously sounding similar campaigns such as the 'TAIHE Gemini' monitor which have been posting word-for-word identical updates. They have also quite blatantly lied about being based in San Francisco, whilst actually being based in Hong Kong, which in itself is fraudulent.

  29. Hi There ,

    I have been waiting for a year now … still there isnt any product received from Vinpok .

    I hope you as a reporter you can do something about this SCAM/FRAUD companies … it have to be stopped for the future of online retail and tech innovation . 
    There is nothing to protect us from such fraud activities as of now .
    But your research and reporting may help more ppl to know and SPREAD THE WORDS online is the FASTEST
