Our review is now online of the Hi8, http://techtablets.com/chuwi-hi8/review/ Update 15th June: It’s now official on Chuwi’s website and has been announced on their Weibo. I will be reviewing this one, and should have one in a week or two. And hope to compare it to the Vi8 Ultra/Ultimate edition. Gearbest have lowered their price even further, it’s now just $92.87 without special...[Read More]
I’ve found which I think is the cheapest deal yet on the 64GB dual boot Teclast X98Air 3G, only $206 with free delivery. Hopefully soon we will see this tablet below $200 everywhere. And the Chuwi Vi10 Dual boot for $153.69 only about $4 dollars more than the limited $149 sale that was on Ali Express a few weeks ago. And then there is the Chuwi Hi8 which is up for pre order at $96 with coupo...[Read More]
I received my Chuwi Vi10 keyboard in record time from China, only 10 days via PostNL. Not bad at all, I was trying to get hold of one when I brought the Vi10, but at the time no seller had this in stock. The keyboard is around $30 and if you buy it with the Chuwi Vi10 normally you can get it much cheaper than this as a bundle, around $15-$20. If you can do this I recommend getting it the sa...[Read More]
Chuwi have updated the Vi8 for the 3rd time now, with the release of the Chuwi Vi8 Ultimate Edition. Aiming for the best budget 8 inch dual boot it seems, gone is the Atom Z3635F 1.8Ghz, replaced with a slightly faster Atom Z3736F 2.16Ghz SoC. The housing is now similar to the Vi10 And V10HD with a glass back, metal trims making it more premium looking and Chuwi claim it’s a thin 7.9 mm. Als...[Read More]
I’ve just wrapped up my review of the new Chuwi Vi10 Dual Boot 10.6 inch tablet. Not a bad tablet,I like the fact it has two full sized USB ports, it does come in handy. The screen is a little bit of a let down at 1366 x 768, but it still looks sharp enough at least in Windows. To get the full pros and cons of this tablet, check out my detailed Chuwi Vi10 Dual OS Review See our forum for Chu...[Read More]
Some interest in this dual boot tablet it seems, here is a detailed hands on look at Windows. I cover the speakers, screen, device manager and a few benchmarks in the video. It would seem the lower 1366 x 768 screen resolution is aiding the tablet somewhat, it does feel a bit faster than other Z3736F Atom powered tablets I’ve tested, it certainly helps 3D with that lower res. I will have fur...[Read More]
Chuwi Vi10 dual boot arrived today, here’s the unboxing video below. Good build quality for a budget tablet, some metal trim in the design and the rear glass is a nice touch that gives it a more premium feel. The screen I was worried about, 10.6 inches at 1366 x 768 isn’t the sharpest screen in the world, it’s not that bad, but 1080p would have been so much sharper an better over...[Read More]
Aliexpress have a special on the Chuwi Vi10, it’s today only and the price has dropped to $149 from $187. The Vi10 looks interesting because it has two full sized usb ports which is handy and the slightly faster Z3736F 2.16Ghz bay trail. What’s not cool is the 1366 x 768 screen resolution on the 16:9 screen, 1080p would have been much better. I ordered this tablet on release two weeks ...[Read More]
The Pipo W4S is the updated version of the 8 inch W4, and the Chuwi Vi8 is a dual boot 8″ similar to the W4S. So which one of these tablets is better? Here is a quick video comparison: Reasons to choose the Chuwi Vi8 over the PiPo W4S Google Play works out of the box. No google play was installed on my W4S Cheaper price Brighter screen Microsd card slot doesn’t have issues in Windows S...[Read More]
Everyone is jumping in on the dual boot band wagon, Chuwi have just announced that they plan to release the Chuwi Vi8 ias a dual boot model to. I recently reviewed this tablet myself here in this original Windows 8.1 config. Well dual is all fine and dandy, the limits this puts on the storage capacity isn’t. Personally, dual boot tablets need a bare minimum of 64GB.
Our review Chuwi Vi8 has just arrived in today. Fresh of the DHL van comes our quick unboxing video. The Chuwi Vi8 is one of those tablets setting a new price point at $99 USD. The difference being it has the same spec of a Dell Venue 8 Pro. An Atom Bay Trail @ 1.83 Ghz, 2GB 1333Mhz ram, a 32GB eMMC flash drive and a 1280 x 800 IPS screen, mircosd slot and all in a shell that even looks similar to...[Read More]
