I’ve had some time on with the Android side of the Dual OS Chuwi Hi12 and I can report back that it’s a good edition to the Hi12, the ROM is fast and light. There are only a few bloat apps and they can all be uninstalled (No root required for that) The tablet is ideal for Google Play Books, gaming in general apart from the most demanding titles. Due to the 2160 x 1440 resolution, the Intel Gen8 GPU of the X5 Z8300 struggles to drive that many pixels in games that run at native resolution like Mortal Kombat X (As seen in the video is just too choppy) Other titles like Real Racing 3 are perfectly smooth.
The audio is better than in Windows. The speakers are much louder and so is the 3.5mm jack, but like my first batch Windows only model there is some light static over the speakers and headphone plug.
The screen is still great like in Windows, but it can’t be lowered down the brightness as low as I would like, I found it too bright the lowest setting when using it late at night. I hope someone has a fix for this minor annoyance. And there was the rare occasional miss touch on the screen. For example 97% of the time, I have no issues. But very rarely I would have to repeat where I touched as I missed the back button or an icon in the launcher. Seemed like an accuracy issue or the screen sleeping for a split second? But it doesn’t happen enough to make an issue at least for me.
