Fujitsu Stylistic V535 (Z3795,128 GB, LTE) Tablet Review

Nino Ricchizzi, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Martina Osztovits), 07/27/2017

Ruggedized for Tough Work. With these words, Fujitsu advertises the industry tablet Stylistic V535. The 8.3-inch tablet comes with many communication features, large memory capacity, and a 64-bit CPU. The specification appears excellent. However, the reality is different: Passive cooling thwarts any plans.

For the original German review, see here.

The 8.3-inch Fujitsu Stylistic V535 tablet is designed for all kinds of industrial use. The business device for about 1300 Euros (~$1527) features an Intel Atom processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of eMMC storage. Optionally, the tablet can be adapted to the work environment with many accessories.

The competition: Panasonic offers the Toughpad series as Windows and as Android variant. The Android version uses an Intel Celeron N2930 with Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail), 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC storage and it costs about 1700 Euros (~$1997). The Windows alternative for 1500 Euros (~$1762) comes with an Intel Core i5-4302Y, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB SSD. The HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 and the Dell Venue 8 Pro are designed for less rough workplaces.

Case & Connectivity

The plain plastic case does not convey an industry product at first. However, the wide display frames and plastic covers on the interfaces suggest a robust business device. Overall, the build quality is satisfactory. Only the battery cover did not fit 100% accurately. Speaking of the battery: As already mentioned the battery sits beneath a cover on the rear side, which can be easily removed with a pry. The manufacturer has applied protection for potentially rougher industrial use. The tablet meets the MIL-STD 810G standard and is supposed to survive drops from up to 1.8 m (only with the optional rugged frame). In addition, the case complies with the IP65 standard, i.e. protection against dust penetration and splash water.

Optional accessories are listed on the product page.

Input Devices

Since the manufacturer does not offer a pen, all inputs have to be done with the fingers via the touchscreen. The touch unit works satisfactorily and recognizes input in the corners and multi-touch gestures with ease. As already criticized in other reviews, the Windows system is hardly optimized for small touch displays. Those who do not want to deal with delicate inputs time and again and do not need a Windows system would be better off buying an Android device such as the Panasonic Toughpad.

Display

Pixel grid
Pixel grid

The used 8.3-inch display features a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. Fujitsu decided to use a glossy IPS display in its industry tablet. The manufacturer specifies a brightness of 400 cd/m². Unfortunately, this brightness level is not reached in our test. We measured an average of 343 cd/m². Disappointing: The brightness falls to only 284 cd/m² on battery. This is too low; especially for an industry device which should also be suitable for use in bright outdoor environments. For example, the Panasonic Toughpad comes with a matte panel with an average brightness of 500 cd/m².

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
19 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10 ms rise
↘ 9 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9338 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The CalMAN analysis reports a deltaE shift of about three. This result is normal for a high-end IPS panel. However, the color coverage, which is interesting for graphics professionals, is too low. The smaller sRGB color space is covered to 72%. The coverage of the big AdobeRGB space is only 47%.

As observed previously, the display brightness falls to about 284 cd/m² on battery. This is sufficient for using the tablet in the shade. However, it is not possible to use it in indirect or direct sun.

Performance

The Fujitsu Stylistic V535 Industrial is an 8.3-inch tablet for the business range. An Intel Bay Trail CPU with four cores and a base clock of 1.6 GHz works inside. In addition, it features 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB storage device. The manufacturer charges about 1300 Euros (~$1527) for the bundle.

Processor

The core is an Intel Atom Z3795 from Intel's Bay Trail generation. The quad-core processor features a clock rate of 1590 to 2390 MHz. Because of its low TDP of less than 4 W, the CPU is especially suitable for mobile tablets. A special feature is 64-bit support. Hence, it can run all desktop programs.

In the Cinebench R15 multi-core test the result fluctuates heavily between 100 and 118 points. After several runs, the score falls to under 90. Thus, the performance heavily correlates with the temperature of the device.

See our special article for more comparisons and benchmarks.

System Performance

We were not always satisfied with the system performance of the small 8-inch device. Even after clicking the Windows start menu, there is a long delay. After uninstalling the preinstalled McAfee LiveSafe software, we could finally work with the test model. The PCMark 8 Home benchmark reports 1139 points, which is normal for the hardware. The HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 is about on par.

Emissions and Energy

System Noise

Fujitsu decided to use passive cooling and a silent storage device. As a result, the test model does not emit noise at all.

Temperature

The temperature already increases to 33 °C in idle mode at an environment temperature of 23 °C. The reason is found quickly: The CPU load even exceeds 40% in idle mode, but we did not find out why exactly this happens. Under load, we measure high temperatures of about 45 °C. We had hoped for a better cooling strategy, especially since significantly higher environment temperatures are likely in industry use.

As soon as we run our stress test with Prime95 and FurMark, the CPU throttles to 600 MHz. After this test, the business tablet needs a while until full performance is available again. The 3DMark 11 results are about 10% lower after the stress test.

Speakers

The incorporated speakers should only be used for system sound. They simply sound too unbalanced for everything beyond that. Music sounds too high-tone heavy.

Battery Life

The used two-cell lithium-polymer battery features a capacity of 16.48 Wh. The manufacturer specifies a maximum battery life of 6 h.

The Wi-Fi test gives a realistic battery life. We simulate web-surfing at a brightness of about 150 cd/m². The Fujitsu Stylistic V535 shuts down after just above 4 hours. The HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 performs better. At over 8 hours, it lasts a workday.

Verdict

In review: Fujitsu V535. Test model provided by Fujitsu Germany.
In review: Fujitsu V535. Test model provided by Fujitsu Germany.

A tablet for high industrial requirements. The Fujitsu Tablet Stylistic V535 targets those who need a reliable tablet for rough environments. In order to achieve this goal, the 8.3-inch tablet complies with several standards such as the MIL STD 810 test. Moreover, the manufacturer offers accessories for various usage scenarios, for example a docking solution, a rugged frame, and straps. While the test model offers several communication options, Wi-Fi communication is extremely slow. Unfortunately, the display also falls behind our expectations. It cannot reach the specified brightness of 400 cd/m² by far. Since an industry device will also be used outdoors, the low brightness might be a reason not to buy this tablet.

We are also not satisfied with the performance: It appears that the test model is often overextended. Long delays and stuttering are not infrequent. The fully fledged Windows system appears to be too much for the Stylistic. This is also reflected by the temperature development. A temperature increase can even be observed in idle mode at an environment temperature of 23 °C. The easily replaceable battery and the battery life of above four hours are advantages.

The Stylistic V535 is well suitable for those who are looking for an industry tablet with many communication features and Windows operating system.

Nevertheless, it is worth considering the competition: The Panasonic Toughpad features a brighter and matte display and Android as operating system.
