      Why's that? My Chuwi is working fine…

      I would say Banggood, never again… Their support is garbage.

    •  

      Missus is still using her Hi8 from 2015 pretty much every day. But like most of these Chinese tabs, lack of software updates and no custom ROMs for it either. Have been looking for something new though but mainly because Android 4.4 can be a problem these days with some apps requiring 5+.

      As for BG support, yeh usually taking the gamble that it will work fine, trying to get support out of any of them is going to be a pain.

  •  

    so is it a Dual 4G cellular .. or just "4G large RAM to keep system running properly." … and "The new Android 8.0 OS decreases mounts of storage space required for apps and improves runtime device performance." what are the updates on these like… im expecting zippo in this area!

  •  

    I am looking for a 10" travel tablet. How does this compare to a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019)?

    Also, Does it support Lineage or any other custom ROMs? Looks like it hasn't received basic Android security patches in over a year!

  •  

    So is X27 equivalent to about SD630?

    "8.0MP front camera + 8.0MP AF rear camera
    It helps you to take charming selfie by 5MP front cam and clear photos of the world by 13MP rear cam with auto focus"

    8+8 = 16
    13+5 = 18
    nope, is not pixel redistribution.

    At this price point, for it to be a good deal, I'd like to see a keyboard thrown in.

    I have a few of the previous gen "Hi10 Pro" tablets, which were android (4.4) and win 10 dual boot and they came with folding metal keyboards that attached to the screen like a proper 2 in 1. Paid $240+ shipped around 2 years ago.

    Out of the 17 tablets, 1 has died and refused to boot past bios. Quick google suggests failure of the cheap eMMC storage.

    Could be better built/supported, but then again where would you go to buy a dual boot Android/win 10, 2 in 1 touchscreen for under $250.

    Would buy again, but would look into getting one that is dual boot and definitely with a keyboard.

      Do you think this can multi task a lot of apps and loads of browser tabs all at once or will it struggle.

      My Huawei MediaPad M3 8.0 inch wifi only version tablet can do a lot of multi tasking but just barely and graphics wise it can play most games but definitely lags and struggles with more modern games like Dota Underlords which can run much more smoothly on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X so end up playing on my 5.5 inch mobile over my 8 inch tablet just for smoother gameplay sake.

      Netflix HD runs smooth and fine on both my Huawei MediaPad M3 8.0 wifi only version tablet and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X so no issues there just space gets filled up fast if I download movies/tv shows even with a 200gb micro sd card.

      Also anyone know the weight on this.. the Huawei is really light compared to most other tablets like around 320g if I recall correctly.

      Wanna get one for a friend who uses a laptop to watch youtube and movies in bed so a tablet might be better for his chest as he is nearing mid 70s.

        Need to make sure that this tablet has Widevine L1 before it will play HD. My old Redmi Note 3 only had Widevine L3 because it had an unlocked bootloadet.

      •  

        The all metal Hi10 Pro weighed in at around 470g from memory when I weighed it. Used it to run mainly low graphics coding apps and games on android. On windows it ran Tinkercad ok, albeit occasional slowdowns. Played CS 1.6 over LAN with no lag. Very playable.

  •  

    Rep, Can we do a deal on the hi10?

  •  

    Looks like one of the better budget android tablets around from reviews, etc. I decided to buy one! Cheers Rep..

    Does anyone know of any good deals on the official stylus and keyboard cover? Any further news on the Android 9 update?

      Doesn't look promising. There are posts saying that Chuwi cancelled their Pie release.

      https://www.tabletblog.de/chuwi-tablets-android-9-pie/

      It was supposed to start OTA in June to be finished in July. July has almost come and gone.

        Yeh, looks like Android 8 is end of the line. In that article you linked he says he got an email from Chuwi themselves saying they won't be updating it.

        To save everyone a click, here's the google translation:

        "I have received an email from the Chuwi Marketing Department asking me to update this article on October 9, 2018. The manufacturer is currently planning no updates to Android 9.0 Pie for the tablets below. In fact, Chuwi has even deleted the Facebook post that I refer to in the original article. For the time being, the Chuwi Tablets will remain on Android Oreo - but that also applies to most devices from other manufacturers. At least it is nice that we get a clear rejection here."

          Staying on Android 8 is ok so long as there are still security patches - maybe the Rep. could advise? I cn't find any discounted price on the keyboard but there is mention on one review that the keyboard doesn't switch off and any button press causes battery drain so maybe better with bluetooth anyway… needed a cheap but reasonable performing android tablet to work with a kickstarter guitar midi solution I bought into as they decided not to support PC!…

    Can't comment on the Hi9 plus, but with the Hi10 Pro, I leave the keyboard docked all the time, for literally mths at a time between use, and have not experienced battery drain at all.

    Have had Bluetooth keyboards in the past and they are ugly, do not fit well, do not hold or dock to the tablet like a proper 2 in 1 and require constant charging and BT connecting.

      I guess it depends on use - the Chuwi has a bigger 10.8" 2k screen and a metal back which are nice. The additional bands for sim cards may be useful also, but some reports suggest the battery life isn't the best.

      The availability of stylus and native keyboard cover for the Chuwi is also a bonus, though cheapest I could find was $50 and $32 + GST respectively on Ebay.

    Just an update found a review that confirms no HD support for Netflix due to not having Widevine L1 support.
