Teclast TBOLT F15 Pro in review: Low-priced 15-inch laptop for basic tasks

Core i3 for 500 Euros. With the F15 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer Teclast offers a 15-inch laptop with an aluminum case and Core i3 processor from Intel. There are also enough ports and an IPS display. What else can you expect for around 500 Euros (~$588)?

Case, equipment and input devices

Teclast uses a mixture of aluminum (lid) and plastic for the dark gray case. The stability is okay and the overall build quality is as expected for this price range, but other manufacturers also offer higher-quality cases in this price range (e.g. Chuwi, Huawei). However, the hinge is not well-adjusted, as it clearly teeters. The black keyboard is not illuminated and the keystroke is quite loud. We liked the large ClickPad and the operation was no problem.

You get a USB-C connector, but it cannot be used for charging (also no DisplayPort). Otherwise, there are two USB ports (3.2 Gen.1) and a full-fledged HDMI output. The microSD reader is very slow, as is the RealTek WLAN module (802.11ac 1x1 & BT 5.0).

The black keyboard offers enough travel, but does not look particularly high-quality due to the loud and clattery stroke. There is no backlight, but the dedicated number pad is practical. The large ClickPad works well, but the loud clicking noises are annoying here as well.

Display - 1080p IPS panel

Subpixel arrangement
Subpixel arrangement

The 15.6-inch IPS display offers Full HD resolution and has a glossy surface. This is problematic outdoors, but at least the subjective picture impression of the panel is good and the colors also look vivid.

The average brightness is around 260 cd/m² and the contrast ratio is even a very good 1400:1. However, the minimum brightness is a bit problematic at 77 cd/m², which is too high in very dark environments. We could not detect PWM flickering and halos are not a problem.

The panel is already very well calibrated ex-works and even editing pictures/videos is reasonably possible thanks to the almost complete sRGB. The viewing angle stability of the IPS display is good.

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
26.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 10.8 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 55 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
39.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 19.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 47 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.7 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life

HWiNFO
HWiNFO

The Intel Core i3-1005G1 is still from the Ice Lake generation and offers 2 cores (4 threads) with a maximum clock of 3.4 GHz. The TDP is very briefly 34 watts and then immediately drops to 15 watts. The performance is accordingly very weak for the year 2021. The subjective operation is also smooth thanks to the M.2 SSD (SATA-III). The F15 Pro is hardly suitable for gaming, but the integrated GPU from Intel easily copes with everyday things like video playback (even 4K). However, the speakers are below average and we recommend external speakers or headphones.

There is a fan, but you can hardly hear it even under load. In return, the surface temperatures are quite high under load, but there are no problems in everyday use.

Idle consumption is a bit high and you should not expect too much in terms of battery life either; our WLAN test with a brightness of 150 cd/m² only runs for just under 6 hours.

Of course, you have to ask yourself what you can expect from a new laptop for just under 500 Euros (~$588). The Teclast F15 Pro does not show any massive weaknesses in the test and can score especially with the color-strong IPS display, which even offers full sRGB coverage. That is by no means a matter of course in this price range.

However, we are rather at the lower edge of the performance spectrum in the other disciplines. Besides the slow dual-core processor, there are also no highlights in the ports and the communication modules.

The Teclast F15 Pro covers the basic requirements and offers a decent IPS display, but all in all, there are better overall packages among the competition even in this price range.

It gets problematic when you look at the rivals. For example, there is the Huawei MateBook D 15, which offers a much better overall package for a lower price (currently around 450 Euros/~$529) depending on the configuration.

Price and availability

The Teclast F15 Pro is available at Aliexpress for around €490 (~$576).

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.
