Chuwi Vi10 Dual Boot Unboxing & First Impressions

Chuwi Vi10 Dual Boot Unboxing & First Impressions

Chuwi Vi10 dual boot arrived today, here’s the unboxing video below. Good build quality for a budget tablet, some metal trim in the design and the rear glass is a nice touch that gives it a more premium feel.

The screen I was worried about, 10.6 inches at 1366 x 768 isn’t the sharpest screen in the world, it’s not that bad, but 1080p would have been so much sharper an better overall. Android looks a little blurry, but more so due to the DPI I feel. Check my YouTube for more videos up and coming of the Chuw Vi10, I’ll have various videos covering the screen, Android hands on, Windows hands on, gaming and benchmarks in both Android plus Windows. I’ll have a review up in a week or two once I get a good feel for it’s pros and cons.

Chinese tablet news, hands on videos and reviews of the latest Chinese tablets. I don’t review or cover just anything, only tablets I think are good enough and worth the attention.

  1. Hello, My Chuwi VI10 finnaly arrived, I turned it on and everything on Windows was set up in Chinese language, please i need help in setting the base language to english. Can read chinese. Thanks

  2. Great reviews, very interesting.
    I’ve just noticed Chuwi have an T10HD 2560×1600 tablet now. Looks like a high res version of the Vi10?

  3. Lol!!!! With all those Chinese tablets around you, No wonder your accent too looks Chinese…..If doubt look at 5:50 the way you say Charging cable!!!! LOL . Cant stop laughing…… Anyways Nice review but the resolution has spoiled the party…

    • Yes I do sound Chinese…….!? It must be the tablets giving me this Chinese accent you’re talking about…

  4. @Asanga, No worries! Good luck with your search, I am going through Chris’s reviews myself at the moment. Good to have someone who gives honest opinions of the tablets, even if he IS a Kiwi! 🙂

  5. @Terry yes that true! Sometimes its misleading when you dont have people like Chris to do in depth reviews. Thanks!

  6. @Asanga Warnakulasuriya, a LOT of the tablets on Aliexpress say that they are 3G, but when you check the fine print, they don’t have a built-in SIM card tray, they support EXTERNAL 3G dongles, which just about any tablet with a USB port does.

  7. I have a bit of a stupid question: can the ram be updated as in laptops or is it integrated somehow and cannot be removed?

  8. Dear Chris,

    Thanks for this review. Can you please confirm if this has a SIM slot because when I checked Ali, they mentioned its with a modem. Thanks!

  9. Good to know your Vi10 has arrived. I can’t wait for depth reviews, especially about the screen comparison with W3F. Is 1366 x768 a deal breaker or still decent to be used as daily and light productivity tablet. Nice thing about this Vi10 is the full sized USB ports.
    I am in doubt between this or W3F

  10. Hi Chris, you are providing a sterling service for those of us who are hesitant about taking the plunge on a Chinese tab! The bad ping on the v116w vs the Surface 3 was an interesting detail which other reviewers probably wouldn’t have picked up. This Chuwi is interesting for its expansion options, but I don’t think I could deal with that resolution.

    Anyway, I was wondering whether you might consider reviewing the Ramos i9s Pro (64GB dual boot) please? I have a Kindle Fire HD 8.9, and I have found that screen size to be a really good balance for reading and thumb typing in portrait, plus watching videos etc in landscape. According to the Chinese review linked below, the Ramos has a Samsung 1900×1200 panel just like the Kindle, so it should be a great display (hopefully also fully laminated like the Kindle). The Ramos design and build quality look good in pics, but then again so do lots of others…. Other spec which caught my eye is an 8000mah battery, which in an 8.9″ tab should give really good stamina. Also there’s an interesting 32GB non-pro version which comes with a Bluetooth game pad, but I think you have to install Windows on that yourself (released only with Android). Overall the specs and price are a lot like the Teclast x98 Air which I’m also considering after your reviews, so it would be really interesting to hear how you think they compare.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Adam, thanks for the feedback, it’s a bit of a lottery getting these tablets. I know I haven’t covered any 8.9 inch tablets yet here and I really need to. The problem is I have limited funds to buy these tablets and have opted for more popular sizes. If I can find a way, I will try to review this tablet or the Chuwi V89. There is also the possibility of the next gen of Atom Chinese tablet just around the corner to, so I don’t want to review many more Bay Trails as they could soon be replaced with new X5 and X7 Atom tablets.

      • Totally understand; I should probably just be patient and wait for Cherry Trail or Core M tabs with 4GB of RAM and non-16:9 resolutions (Surface 3 is ideal but too expensive outside US). Thanks for responding!

  11. Hi,plz make css,call of duty 2 gaming video. Its was amazing.
