Chuwi’s Hi9 Plus Android tablet recently received a huge 1GB ROM update, it’s basically a completely new ROM. This addresses the performance issues which affected the first release ROM & batch. With this new update, the performance has improved greatly (within the limits of the Helio X27 chipset) everything feels a bit smoother and responsive.
However, the touch and stylus issues remain. The touch response at times is slow, mostly when you haven’t touched it after a while it seems to go into a sleep state the touch digitizer requiring a second to wake up which means you have to tap again. Also when say scrolling it should be smoother the input, maybe a touch sample rate error.
The stylus sadly still doesn’t support palm rejection or pressure levels. My review rating has been slightly adjusted, this is a great tablet if only the touch could be fixed completely. It has one of the best IPS panels used in a tablet of this price, a great keyboard stand set up similar to an iPad Pros. I’ll keep you posted on any further OTA’s.
Fingers crossed the next edition gets something a bit more powerful, maybe the Helio P60 or P90 would be great in this. My next tablet to review isn’t exactly new the AllDocube M5X, like the M5 just faster with the same Helio X27 as the Hi9 Plus.
