The Chuwi Hi10 Pro is a well-built tablet that combines a full HD display and a modern design. The aluminum construction makes it sleek and solid. Many tablets now come with dual operating systems. It is no stranger on Chuwi devices. The Hi10 Pro also has two at the same time, Android and Windows. The Windows version is the Windows 10 Home, while the Android one is the Version 5.1 Lollipop.
Aluminum plays a role in giving the tablet a premium look. For the price point, the device delivers more than expected. Despite the large size, it remains grippy. The bezels aren’t the thinnest. In fact, the top bezel is quite sizeable. Well, at least the connectivity options are adequate. In addition to a micro USB, users are also spoiled with a micro HDMI slot and a, USB Type-C, etc. There is even another USB port on the keyboard. Yep, it’s not a standalone tablet like older releases. It comes with a keyboard deck that can be attached or removed easily. It may resemble a laptop, but it needs a serious performance boost to get on that level.
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro sports a 10.1-inch display, which is very large for a tablet. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1200, resulting in detailed and sharp images. Sharpness is not the only thing it’s good at. Color reproduction is equally fantastic. The tablet is value for money because the screen looks crisp and colorful. If you’re wondering about outdoor visibility, it’s still usable in direct sunlight due to the high nits. You can further change the graphics settings to improve the quality. The only thing that prevents the display from performing at its best is the reflective nature. Bring it back indoors if you can’t see anything clearly.
Although the Chuwi Hi10 Pro is offered with a keyboard, it is sold separately. The price of a keyboard deck is quite expensive, so if it’s sold as a bundle, it will drive up the cost significantly. With the keyboard being attached, the unit weighs around 1,100 grams. It’s far from compact, but the installation is easy. You just have to secure it in place and the keyboard will be connected to the screen. The keys are properly spaced out. It feels good for typing with a decent amount of key travel. The touchpad, on the other hand, struggles to match the experience offered by the keyboard. It’s kind of jumpy and lacks sensitivity.
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro relies on an Intel Z8300 Quad Core 1.44GHz for performance. It also includes 4GB of RAM for smooth multitasking. The processor cranks out enough power to keep things going. It’s never intended to be a powerful gaming device or something of that sort. For this reason, don’t overload it with graphics-heavy games. Basic games and apps can still be handled very well, but the moment you install games that feature intricate graphics, the tablet will start acting out of the ordinary. For storage the company gives 64GB for free, expandable up to 128GB. In the meantime, camera performance is rather a letdown. The results are blurry, far from the best although still usable. As for the battery life, there is a 6500mAh package inside to ensure that the tablet runs for 6 to 7 hours.
