Chuwi Hi9 Air Review Now Online

Chuwi’s latest Android tablet the Hi9 Air, a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 tablet with two SIM slots. MicroSD, GPS, FM Radio. The screen is a fully laminated 2560 x 1600 IPS panel with 2.5D glass, for some reason the brightness Chuwi toned down. It should be much brighter than its 205 lux max I measured for this Sharp branded panel. The ROM is stock Android 8.0 with no bloatware and the build quality is decent for the price. But certainly not premium. 4G worked well, but the signal strength seems on the low side or the bar is misrepresented. Overall this is a good tablet for the $219 price for those looking for a tablet with a nice screen, 4G dual SIM support, and even GPS. All the games I have tested, even demanding ones like PUBG run fine, there is some lag at times but overall a playable experience and no throttling and lag which affects the Alldocube X1. My review is below and the rating can be found here: Chuwi Hi9 Review.

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. Waiting for the Xiaomi Max 3 or the Mi Pad 4 with Qualcomm’s 635/636 or 660, I hope they will be announced on the May 31. The X20 chips don’t seem very good when compared with the new Qualcomm mid-range chips.

  2. Would love to see a review comparing a Chrome OS tablet vs Android 8
    Something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHmtMXJITTY

  3. Micro-USB, not USB-C 3.1? Huge mistake. Buggy camera, dim panel. Slow 4G. The Hi-9 Air could have been the first competitive “global” design out of Shenzhen, in the same league as the Samsung Galaxy tablets, but like the CoreBook design, Chuwi can’t seem to get the total package right.

    • Sadly there always has to be something. 4G signal and the screen are fixable at least. Apparently, it was bright, but Chuwi just dimmed it due to a customer complaining it was too bright or something. I’m still waiting for the CoreBook it is well overdue.

  4. Having dual SIM card capability, does this mean connectivity in the USA? ATT network broadband?

    • You will have to check and compare the bands. EU is fine, but USA bands I’m not sure.

  5. let’s hope for a software fix about the panel nits. 400 is the min for an outdoor use

  7. project treble?
