Support for ai 64-bit and to DirectX 11.2. The installed memory is of type eMMC and has a capacity of 64 GB, expandable through microSD, while RAM amounts to 4 GB L single channel up to 1600 MHz.
Following the hardware just listed we found some good basic performance. In fact, this tablet will be able to perform light workloads and not particularly demanding in absolute fluidity. Objectively, this results in a user experience that is certainly pleasant during everyday use.
During the web browsing, the pages are rendered in a manner discreet even with heavy and demanding sites, indicating that the platform is well balanced despite thehigh efficiency in terms of best before date e temperature.
On the tested device are present 4 GB of RAM, absolutely essential for fluid use. This turns out to be of vital importance during the more pushed multi-tasking, but also when using browsers such as Google Chrome that subtract numerous resources while browsing the web. We are however caught up in some lag o slight impaction only in situations of strong stress under the profile of the workloads.
As specified in the hardware description on board this tablet, there is one Intel GPU di eighth generation able to guarantee some good performance, especially in the field Gaming, thanks to 12 calculation unit operating at a frequency between i 200 and of 500 MHz.

Chuwi Hi10 Pro - Autonomy and connectivity
The battery installed by 6500 mAh combined with the less energetic processor can guarantee one good autonomy, variable depending on the workload and therefore the type of use.
Using the product as a netbook, or doing web browsing and light editing of papersI managed to get around 6 hours and a half of autonomy with brightness set at 50%, while with more demanding workloads, such as the vision of streaming video, Gaming o editing of full-bodied documents, autonomy will fall on 5 half past hours. Using the device with brightness at a minimum for the reading PDF I arrived at almost eight hours of autonomy.
The device is equipped with only connectivity Wi-Fi b / g / n, which boasts one average reception and enough stable. Present the Bluetooth 4.0 and an exit micro-HDMI for connecting the device to external schemes. There are no full-format ports on the device, but only on the sides of the keyboard, optional, sold separately.
It is not possible to estimate it AC standard, a modem for connectivity 3G / 4G, GPS Compass and the Radio FM
Chuwi Hi10 Pro - Multimedia
There are two cameras installed, both from XMUMX mega-pixel interpolated, since the real shooting solution is equal to 1280 x 720 pixels, approx 0.9 mega-pixels.
La quality è really low, since i Scatti returned are often blurry e shelled, given the low resolution of the sensor.
The video recording quality is limited to only 720p a 30 fps on both cameras, so at the limit to make video calls.
As for the rest of the media department, I have not had any problems with the reproduction of videos in Full HD e 4K is 60 fps, both with codecs H.264 that H.265 and in format mkv o mp4. Only videos a 10-bit they reported obvious fluidity and lag problem, sign of how this solution has not been implemented at the hardware codec level.
Good but not optimal il positioning of speaker; present one along the right and one on the left, since it would have been preferable to position them in front. In any case the volume maximum is quite high, as well as in headphones, and allows you to enjoy the various multimedia content without any problem whatsoever.
Chuwi Hi10 Pro - Software
On the software front, this new one Chuwi Hi10 Pro it stands as a particularly device versatile. We find in fact installed in dual boot Windows 10, obviously original e correctly activated, without any pre-installed application, e Remix OS. The latter represents a particularly customized version of Android for use on tablets.
Thereinterface make flowing almost always fluid, scaling the size of the icons works well and allows you to use and take advantage of the screen with the touch interface. The same goes for the matter as well Remix OS, where what is bad is the version of Android Lollipop 5.1 on which it is based. In fact, what I think is flawed is the graphics of the applications that appears, unfortunately, rather dated.
Using the Chuwi Hi10 Pro with the relative keyboard we will have a real available netbook, on which you can perform most of the lightest software applications are running smoothly editing documents and Web browsing.
Too bad, for the lack on the tablet of the two full-size USB ports, easily demouldable by combining the keyboard that, as mentioned previously, integrates one to the left and the right laterally.
Chuwi Hi10 Pro - Conclusions
This Chuwi Hi10 Pro it's a device without too many frills but of substance. Complete of the keyboard it becomes a real 2-in-1 compact. Under the software profile, thanks to the presence of both Windows how much of Android, bring with you great flexibility in everyday use.
All seasoned by one good technical data sheet, based on the Z8300 processor, 4 GB of RAM and well 64 GB of storage further expandable through micro SD.
Average l'autonomy, good il display and the touch screen, a little 'less than the glass cover, really little oleophobic.
Overall we promote the Chuwi Hi10 Pro, also in light of the interesting sale price that sees it in the catalog. Recall that the terminal is available at a price of 147.47 € from China to the store Gearbest, while the official keyboard is available at 33.91 €, at the same online store.
