Build & Design
Well, to be honest, the first impression after looking at the tablet was not so nice. It has a very large bezel around its edges and has a very simple look on the rear side. On the front, it has a 2 MP camera on the top and large bezel around the four sides. On the back side of the tablet, there is a rear camera on the top along with a Chuwi logo.
On the top, it has volume rocker buttons along with a power button. On the left side, it has various slots for different connectivity that includes, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB type-C slot, micro USB slot, Mic and HDMI slot and microSD card slot. On the right side, it has speakers to get an output. So overall the build is overall nice though the look won’t impress you much.
Display & Camera
Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet has a 10.8 inch IPS display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1280 better than the Chuwi Hi 10 ultrabook-tablet. With these display features, you can easily use this tablet on a bright sunny day or in Low light without any extra shiny spots on the screen.You can also read ebooks or any other official documents on this tablet in full sharp light. Also, You don’t have to face reflection problem on its display.
Moving on to the camera, Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet has cameras on both of its sides. 2MP cards on the either side make it really useful. You can capture images or record videos from either of the cameras. But the camera quality is not good so you’ll have to make a compromise here. But what do you expect from a $189.99 tablet?
Hardware & Performance
It has a slightly improved processor when compared to the Chuwi Hi10 tablet, it is powered with Intel Cherry Trail x5-Z8350 that gives it a power of Quad Cores. It comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage that is pretty decent for a tablet of this price range.
The battery is the also an advantage for this tablet as it has built-in lithium 8400mAh battery which can meet the current, power and the temperature and increase the performance to a large extent. It does not have any heating problem while doing a heavy task or playing any game.
It is a dual OS tablet, comes with pre-installed Windows 10 and Android 5.1(lollipop). You can easily switch from either of the OS without any problem. You’ll get Android 5.1 out of the box and you may get an OTA update soon for the Android upgrade.
Connectivity is something that we don’t bother much while buying a gadget. But according to me, its one of the important point that we should look while selecting a gadget. The Chuwi Hi10 Plus don’t support calls over the network, you can’t insert SIM card. This is ok, as personally even I haven’t called anyone on the tablet.
Apart from that, you can insert microSD card to expand the storage up to 128 GB, definitely a big advantage. It also has USB type C slot that is better than the standard micro USB type slot. Don’t worry micro USB slot is also present. What if I tell you that it also has HDMI support, cool? Yes, Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet also has an HDMI slot.
