Chuwi Hi8 Unboxing video

Three new tablets to review this week, this Hi8 is the third. Here is the unboxing video. Its got exactly the same look as the Vi8 Ultimate model just released, but with a better screen. If you missed it, check out my Chuwi Vi8 Vs Chuwi Hi8 comparison to get an idea of which is best (There is no clear cut winner). Good build quality, the screen is a huge upgrade over the old 1280 x 800 one. ItR...[Read More]

[Updated] Chuwi Hi8 Vs Chuwi Vi8 Ultimate – Which is better?

So I have the 4th Chuwi Vi8 model you could say, the Hi8 with it’s Vi8 Ultimate design, chipset and lack of HDMI. It has a very sharp (iPad Retina sharp) 1920 x 1200 screen that is brighter than the Chuwi Vi8 Ultimate. Both have the exactly same design and specs, they have the horrible 0.3 MP VGA front facing cameras which are almost useless even in video chat. They both have lost the micro ...[Read More]

PiPo W8 unboxing and first impressions

The Pipo W8 arrived the other day, here is the unboxing video and my first impressions. My Windows benchmarks, heat and throttling tests to follow soon.

Chuwi Vi8 Ultimate Edition unboxing and first impressions

My Chuwi Vi8 Ultimate edition arrived today. Unfortunately the Hi8 has not shipped yet, so that will come later on. The Vi8 Ultimate edition is the Vi8, but with a new white look that is similar in design with the Vi10HD and Vi10 Dual OS I recently reviewed. It shares the metal trim and more squared of edges. It doesn’t have a glass back, like the vi10 but it does have it’s slightly fa...[Read More]

Cube i7 Stylus on sale today and sold out already

Yes, it was just listed on sale today on JD.com and it sold out within hours. My bet is it was the Ali Express sellers and online retailers buying them all up to sell with huge mark ups. According to Cube the i7 Stylus, without the keyboard or Wacom pen, should retail for $299… Not a bad price for a Core M. Of course that’s the price in China, so it’s normal its going to sell for...[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]
