Chuwi’s first mini PC isn’t a bad attempt, it’s the revised Atom X5 Z8350, 4GB of RAM and dual OS. Runs both Windows 10 Home and Android 5.1 which is getting a little old now. The mini PC has 3 USB ports, one of which is USB 3.0, they can all power external hard drives and that USB 3.0 port runs at proper USB 3.0 speeds.
It also supports a mini remote which also has an air mouse function that works similar to that of an LG magic remote for their smart TV’s or the Wii remote. Its build quality is good and the remote works in both Windows 10 and Android without a need of additional drivers.
Thermals are a little on the warm side, 84 degrees on the CPU when pushed hard gaming, but it never runs into thermal throttling which would lower its performance. Surface temps of the device get up to around 35 degrees so warm to the touch but nothing alarming.
Overall for the price of $130 USD (With Coupon GBCWH) I find this to be a great little PC, Android performance is the best part of it playing even the most demanding games with playable frame rates (as per my video review) and the fast bloat-free ROM. However if you plan on using the internal mics just be aware that my unit (first batch) has an issue with the two internal mics, recording audio resulted in nothing but an awful static noise. It seems they aren’t connected or working on my unit, so you’ll have to use an external mic.
