Hands-on video with the Chuwi Vi8 Plus, I ran through my usual benchmarks, tested out the speaker and type-c port. Sadly it seems the type-c port is only USB 2.0 spec and not USB 3.0. It will run my 1TB Toshiba basics 2.5″ HDD, but speeds are limited to 40mb’s. Considering the tablet doesn’t come with an adaptor and we aren’t getting anything over USB 2.0 speeds I’m not really sure what the point of adding the Type-c port was? Chuwi would have been better off just leaving it as a micro USB 2.0 port.
Apart from this issue, the tablet seems to be a decent 8″ tablet for $90, thermals maxing out at 74 degrees when gaming for two hours. I’ll have a gaming test video coming soon with Counter Strike Global Offensive, League of Leagues and some store games.
