This is the long awaited Chuwi Hi10, with the brand new Atom X5 processor that will replace the aging Vi10. This 10.1″ windows tablet comes with very impressive specs, a full HD display, 4GBs of RAM, and 64GBs of storage and it’s just $180US Dollars. However, is this an instant buy? Continue watching my review to find out.

The Chuwi Hi10 is way more compact than the older Vi10. While it’s not the smallest 10″ tablet out there, it’s a very respectable size and you can use it quite easily with just one hand. The Hi10 uses durable plastic for the body instead of glass, and while it doesn’t feel as premium as the Vi10, it feels about average but is much, much lighter.
You find the Windows button on the right side and the camera up top.
Power and volume buttons are on top. All the ports are on the left side, 2 USB ports, 1 is a USB3 port, MicroUSB, MicroHDMI, MicroSDCard and the headphone jack. The keyboard connectors are on the bottom.
The back of the tablet is made out of durable plastic that doesn’t feel too premium but is extremely solid. I believe CHuwi made the right decision to use plastic instead of glass. The tablet is also bevelled, similar to the Kobo Arc 10HD, making it feel thinner than it really is.
Overall, build quality is satisfactory, the tablet itself is strong and light, but is still plastic. The keyboard itself is also satisfactory, however I absolutely love the keyboard docking method, in my opinion the best way to attach a keyboard.
