Usage and performance

The display is a non-laminated screen, which is not a deal breaker, especially at this price. It’s still sufficiently bright and boasts vibrant, well-defined colors even when viewed outdoors in the sunshine. As this is an IPS panel, you get excellent viewing angles, and we found the touchscreen to be really responsive.

The keyboard was one of the best we’ve tested so far on laptops in this price range. It has surprisingly good travel with excellent feedback and generously proportioned keys, but alas, it is not backlit. Touch typing was a joy.

All that said, we have our reservations regarding the touchpad which is smaller than we’d ideally want on a laptop of this size/price, especially as part of its surface area is occupied by a fingerprint reader.

Note that there’s an optional active stylus pen available for about £20 (around $25) for those who want to make the most out of the laptop’s tablet mode. As for the battery life, the F6 Pro comfortably hit 5 hours 20 minutes, one of the best times we’ve clocked – and that’s almost certainly down to the Core M CPU.


The F6 Pro is easily in the top 5% of the most expensive laptops from non-top-tier vendors, and that’s a big risk Teclast has taken, given that not many of us are ready to spend nearly £600 (after VAT is included) on a little-known vendor.

The Voyo Vbook V3 comes with a more powerful Core i5 CPU with 8GB of system RAM and a 256GB SSD for just under £600 ($840), while the Xiaomi Air 12 has half the RAM and no touch display, but is an elegant alternative at less than £420 ($590).

Its biggest Chinese-sourced rival, though, remains the Alldocube Thinker notebook which has a display with a much higher resolution, a lower price tag, and twice the amount of storage. Not everyone will like the display ratio or the fact that it is a non-touch display, though.

For those looking for the peace of mind that comes from buying in the UK, then both the HP Pavilion x360 14 and the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 deliver an 8th-generation Core i5 CPU with twice the storage (256GB SSD) and a rock bottom price (less than £650 – that’s around $910), all without the inherent risks associated with buying abroad.

Final verdict

Businesses will love the integrated fingerprint reader and the overall design of the Teclast F6 Pro. Unfortunately, other than that there’s little that will sway the average buyer away from the top laptop manufacturers, especially given the near price parity once local taxes are accounted for.

Even so, the F6 Pro isn’t lacking in ambition, and it has the hardware clout to make its performance levels shine. The keyboard and the display were both on par with rivals in the same price range, and the battery life was nothing short of exceptional. The smart overall design doesn’t hurt, either.
