The performance and capabilities of Android tablets are affected by the operating system that used. The higher the version, the better the performance and complete its features. Today, began many local brands tablet that use Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Uniquely, the price also more affordable.


Both are unibody casing, means the battery firmly attached with the body tablets, and can’t be removed. The casing also tightly closed without being able to be opened.

IMO X5 design less attractive, with white plastic casing materials that less classy. White color in IMO X5, making the edge of screen area looks too wide. Another case with black color edge in Cyrus Atom Pad, makes it look more elegant. Casing materials of Cyrus Atom Pad also better.

Completeness of features on the both of body side. In IMO X5, there was volume buttons, microSD slot, 3.5 mm audio jack, miniUSB port as well as charger port, and power button. Then there was Home physical buttons in the front and VGA camera, and mono speaker on the back.

While in Cyrus Atom Pad, completeness of port better, collected on the right side. Available volume buttons, power button, 3.5 mm audio jack, HDMI port, miniUSB port, a separate charger port, and microSD slot. On the front cover there is only VGA camera, while mono speaker on the right side. In Cyrus AtomPad also has three haptic buttons (Menu, Home, Back), while IMO X5 none.

Both screen specs exactly same, ie WVGA wide-screen (800 x 480 pixels) size of 7 inch. With same OS (Android 4.0) and still standard, doesn’t seen noticeable difference in the screen display. Both screen appearance quite sharp, even though the colors are less bright. Both also already capacitive touch screen technology, and has equivalent sensitivity when touched a finger, was quite responsive and accurate. Similarly when used to type fast, both feel comfortable and accurate.


Because still standard default of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, then there’s no difference between both. Only, Live wallpaper on the homescreen of Cyrus AtomPad more interesting with appearance of dynamic moving fish pond, with pond of water wave response when touched a fingers. IMO X5 homescreen just a blank blue appearance that less attractive, with selection of standard Live Wallpaper that monotone.

Go to main menu, appearance and placement of menu buttons from both exactly same, ie mixed into one and sorted alphabetically. The icons in the next page can be seen by sliding to the right.

Besides Android 4.0 standard apps, in IMO X5 there was Ebook application, Explorer, MovieStudio, and some links. While in Cyrus AtomPad, there are Cyrus apps such as application store and special game from Cyrus, also Cyrus Indobook (e-book apps), DevTools and File Manager.


There was no main camera on both of this tablet. There are only second camera on the front, VGA resolution in IMO X5 and 1.3 MP resolution in Cyrus AtomPad. Because in the front, then its function of course for video call, via WiFi internet access and chating application like Skype or Yahoo Messenger. Video call only can be done via WiFi internet. Trying to photographs of objects with this front camera, of course, with see it from the side.

Although only front camera, there is a few settings in its camera, ie Scene (Auto, Night), White Balance (Auto, Incandescent, Daylight, Fluoerscent, Cloudy) and Geotagging (GPS location coordinates). While in Cyrus, Scene feature replaced by Exposure +/- 4 feature, then White Balance with the same number of choices, plus Geotagging.

Despite the lower resolution, the results are quite surprising. Outside room, camera photo result of IMO X5 much sharper, brighter with more natural colors. In fact, Cyrus camera that higher its resolution, only able to produce photo that little fuzzy with pale color and faded style of watercolor painting. Inside room, IMO X5 noise looks a lot, even though still better compared to Cyrus.

Video record result show the same character. IMO X5 video images sharper and brighter, while Cyrus video pale and less sharp. Both capable of producing video footage that smoothly without any lag symptoms.


Both music player similar, still ICS standard default. So did both speaker that mono. Both have Sound effect feature, such as 10 preset equalizer which ready to use, five-channel manual equalizer, with additional bass boost and 3D effect.

Compared to IMO X5, Cyrus speaker sound rather louder, with middle tones more dominant. While IMO X5 speakers sound rather weak, especially its placement on the back, unlike Cyrus speakers that on the side.

With 3.5 mm headset, Cyrus sound better, louder with powerful stereo effects, as well as a round bass and powerful.


Both without sim card slot, so internet can only be accessed via WiFi. However, both also support external 3G modem. Both can running internet access via WiFi smoothly.

In Cyrus AtomPad, its performance more reliable. We can move between applications quickly with no lag symptoms. Cyrus also can open multiple applications at once with well (multitasking).

Both can be invited to playing games well, with no significant lag symptoms. Popular games like Angry Birds, Split the Rope, untill 3D games like RC Heli SIM can be played smoothly.

Speaking of battery life, IMO X5 more wasteful. With the use that same for a few hours, its battery already asking to recharged because only 14 percent. While Cyrus AtomPad battery still 36 percent.

Connectivity features in IMO X5 less than Cyrus AtomPad, ie via bluetooth and data cable. While in Cyrus, there’s HDMI port for displaying high-resolution video to the TV. Charger port in IMO X5 become one with data cable port, while in Cyrus separately.
