If you missed the YouTube video I posted a few days ago on the channel you would have seen I got hold of my Chuwi Hi12 Dual OS from Banggood. (The video is below) At first, I thought the ROM was 100% bloat free, but just to be 100% sure, I did a factory reset and there were about 5 Chinese apps that were there on first boot, luckily they can all be removed. The ROM is stock and has no custom launcher which is great to see, it’s quite fast. And the DPI used in the ROM is perfect for the 2160 x 1440 screen. One thing I did notice however is the lowest brightness setting is quite high. I would like to see it as dim as possible and I think most would agree with me on this as it would make it better for late night use without. Max bright is a decent 381 cd/m2.
The build quality is the same my Windows 10 Home only version and the screen has only a tiny bit of light bleed on the left-hand side. This I’m sure will be down to luck and will vary from screen to screen.
A video review of Android on the Hi12 will be posted in a day or two, so keep an eye out for that.
