So after almost 11 months of testing I have reached several conclusions on the Chuwi HiBook tablet. They are exactly what one would expect from a pretty damned great, better specs tablet these days and that is, if you want a great 10 inch class, Dual Boot, tablet, buy one of these!
I am uncertain if you can find the original HiBook like this one but the Pro is better has a better display and a larger battery. The 10.1 inch screen on the original version is bright and to be frank, quite stunning when watch movies! It has it glitches here and there, but over all it is an incredible buy if you can find one on a flash sale at either Gearbest or Banggood.
The battery life is good and it can easily function as a notebook if you get the add on keyboard or use a Bluetooth keyboard available almost anywhere. I do like the K480 Logitech, but there are a lot of decent Bluetooth keyboards available these days. Grab yourself an OTG adapter and you can use any wireless mouse out there.
No it isn’t a gaming machine, although N.O.V.A 3 does work well in Android. But if you are buying a 10 inch tablet for gaming I personally think you need to get a life.
The HiBook is certainly not as nice as the Hi12, but it is lighter, the ram runs faster, (BIOS tweak), and it doesn’t have nearly as many glitches as the Chuwi Hi12 that I am typing this article on. The HiBook has a USB C port the Hi12 doesn’t. On the flip side the Hi12 has 2 full size USB ports, 1 x 2.0 the other 1 x 3.0. I am not entirely thrilled with USB C because it means if you have some older devices to connect you need to have an adapter.
The bottom line is that I am totally happy with both of the tablets we have here for testing and including any adapters and the super fast ComFast WiFi dual-band adapter I purchased, I am still about $500-700 dollars below the cost of a single MicroCrap or Apple product, and yeah Samsung also!
That is all for now,
