Time for another Chuwi tablet, Chuwi Hi10 Pro tablet. In the last post, I featured the Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet along with a coupon code to get it for a discounted price. Chuwi Hi10 Pro has almost similar specs of Hi10 Plus, both have Intel Cherry Z8350 chipset though this one has a smaller screen size of 10.1 inches. Hi10 Pro is also a dual OS tablet that means you can use either of the OS, Android and Windows 10. It has almost a similar price to that of the Hi10 Plus and you can buy it from gearbest at $199.99. I am also including a coupon code to get flat $10 off on your purchase.

Build & Design
Coming to the design and build aspect of Chuwi Hi10 Pro tablet, this tablet has a decent look. The material is plastic but the tablet just looks fine, though it has rather big bezels around the edges. On the front, it has a 2MP front camera and the same camera is present on the rear side also.
On the top, it has volume rocker buttons along with a power button and on the left side, it has different slots like 3.5 mm jack, USB type C slot, micro USB slot, microSD card slot and an HDMI port. 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 Pro tablet has 10.1 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200p. The display quality is pretty decent and does well under excessive lighting conditions. Even though there is big bezel, the display seems to be fine. Pretty good build tablet with a decent display quality.
Coming onto the camera, Chuwi Hi10 Pro 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.
Battery backup is DISAPPOINTING. It has only 6500 mAh battery, the Chuwi HI10 Plus had 8700 mAh battery, compared to that tablet it has a very weak battery backup. As it holds only 6500mAh of the battery. So it may be the biggest downside of Chuwi Hi10 Pro.
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.
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 Pro tablet also has an HDMI slot.

The keyboard quality is top-notch so you can do a lot more with this Chuwi Hi10 Pro tablet. Chuwi Hi10 Pro also supports stylus pen that makes it possible to write or edit documents digitally.
Verdict & Special Offer
According to me, Chuwi Hi10 Pro is a decent looking tablet with average performance. The battery backup is definitely a downside of this tablet so I’d recommend you to go with Chuwi Hi10 Plus tablet as the price of both the tablets are almost same but it has slightly more battery than Hi10 Pro.
