What weird quirks can you think about the Eve V?
Let me start:
The name V is chosen because the shape resembles a flipped pyramid
The USB-A port is backwards / upside-down compared to the Surface and virtually any tablet out there
Unlike most tablets and phones, both microphones are on the same side
Despite it has 2 speaker grilles, there are 4 speakers, 2 behind each grille
The mainboard has no serial number digitally. It’s still written “Default String”
The battery chemistry on Windows Battery Report is not “Li-Ion”, “Li-Po”, or other chemistry, but it says “Real”. It is a real battery indeed.
Holding Volume Up + Volume Down at the same time will trigger Ctrl+Alt+Delete, but it then keeps the Ctrl active until the next restart.
Backspace key says “oops!”
V key is the Eve V logo
The Bluetooth button (F12) does not do anything when the keyboard is attached
The keyboard works as a BT keyboard, and can connect to 3 different devices
The keyboard still works when flipped backwards
The keyboard can’t be attached backwards because of the magnet polarity
Not accessible with touch
The BIOS has a configuration page for SATA controller, despite this device has no SATA component attached, and no possibility to attach one yourself
Connected Standby is configurable from the BIOS
There are many options available there. For example, you want to throttle your SSD to PCIe Gen 1 speed? You can have that. I dont know why anyone would do that, but you can.
I don’t think I’ve had this problem before
Can’t reproduce the Ctrl problem either, but I like the volume button thing
In my case, after triggering the buttons combo, tapping on a desktop icon would open the “Properties” window instead. Keyboard detached the whole time
Can’t reproduce that either. Detaching the keyboard didn’t change a thing.
Gosh I hope this is fixed in an update soon
Yeah… it would be rough to have to flip the cable over!
maybe in next version/update…
Of course it’s upside down.
It’s a pyramid flipper after-all, so it should be.
It’s a signature quirk!
PS I have experienced that with some other devices, specially in China.
Not really a big deal in the end
at least we aren’t getting any fake batteries where they mimic the weight with metal pieces;
“Oops” and “V” keys on the keyboard, maybe not a real quirk since everyone made their peace with it, but IMO it is one.
Will reply more as soon as I get the V.
What?! That’s crazy and sounds dangerous!
or 1TB "SSD"s that are flashdrives and weights in a case
@TechieWeirdo. Oops is the keyboard brand I think.
Yeah, backspace got too many orders already
Quirk: Eve V not being much of a sleeper and likes to wake up at odd times of the day
Solution (still in testing): Use hibernate instead of sleep (either from the Power Menu on Windows or reconfigured power button) and stop the keyboard and trackpad from being able to wake the machine.
Quirk: Both USB-C ports can be used to charge the device so I generally prefer to use that when I want to charge but the Eve V is off.
So, it’s has been Backordered, right?
#1: not in my hands ._.
Strictly speaking that’s not a quirk, it’s an anomaly.
So - not even shipping info in Malaysia yet?
I should hide this before nawthor comes back.
Calm your tits, all three of you! You’re the three most excited people on the forum today!

Yup! Sorry for the bad jokes! Nobody seems to get it.
