I asked my AliExpress seller why my Chuwi Vi10 Ultimate I ordered for review here still hasn’t shipped out, I go this reply: Hello friend, thank you for your order at first. Actually the factory were ready to send the Vi10 Cherry Trail to us these two days, but when they tested the tablets before sent, they found that the new chip have a problem that is easy to hot, so they have to stop and ...[Read More]
I’ve now had my Chuwi Vi10 Dual Boot for around 7 months. I thought I would post a quick video on how it’s holding up. To be honest, like most people I expected battery wear (Would it hold a full charge?), slowness to creep in and maybe the USB ports, MicroUSB charge port to be falling apart or some other damage. The usual for a cheap Chinese tablet right? Well, it seems many models mi...[Read More]
I received an (anonymous) tip-off, that told me Chuwi are working on an upgrade for their popular Vi10 dual boot. The new model is set for release in September according to this source it will have a next gen Atom Cherry Trail processor, a possible 4GB of Ram and 64GB eMMC storage options. The 1366 x 768 screen and two USB 2.0 ports will remain unchanged as well as the rest of the tablets design. ...[Read More]
Prices have been dropping in the last month, the Chuwi Vi10 is now only $140, and the Teclast X98 Air 3G 64GB model is now $202.95, both have free shipping included. All these price drops make me wonder if they are clearing out stocks for the up and coming new models with Windows 10 or next gen Atom chips? If you have found cheaper please let us know in the comments.
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]
The Chuwi Vi10 is a dual OS 10.6" tablet, powered by Intel's Z3736F Bay Trail that can boost up to 2.16Ghz and 2GB of Ram. The design of this budget 10.6" tablet includes 3 x USB ports, two of which are full sized ports. Another features include an ambient light sensor that works in both Windows and Android.
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]
