Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Chuwi Hi12 vs Chuwi Hi13 (video)

Today we are comparing the Hi12 to the Hi13 Chuwi tablets. It might seem that the Hi13 is the obvious choice but there are considerations. Price and battery life being the most important.

The Hi12 costs about $235 while the Hi13 is about $319. Those of course do not include the cost of accessories such as a keyboard and a stylus if you are so inclined. However of course you can get an inexpensive case and a Bluetooth keyboard and save a boatload of money in the long run by reusing that keyboard with multiple tablets and even phones. My Hi12 works quite well with the cheap case/Logitech  K480 Keyboard and a mouse as pictured below.

So without further intro here is the video from Chris at techtablets.com.

That is all for now,

My Review of The Chuwi Hi12 Tablet, Dual Boot (With the Z8350 CPU): Video

Since I have had my hands on this tablet for a good deal of time, I thought I should write a review and include one of my crappy videos shot on the BLU Studio Energy 2 phone, which incidentally is on day 3 of a charge and still has 28% battery.

So the new tablet has performed as expected and works extremely well in Windows 10, although the Android portion is just so-so. It has a lot of positives and a few negatives and I shall now list those below.

Positives:

  • Stunning display, incredibly bright! Sharp and can be run comfortably at 25% unless in bright lighting.
  • Battery life is stellar. I never bring a charger with me to work and get through an entire day of web editing, image editing, using Office and Paintshop Pro and I go home at no less than 48% battery!
  • Speed is good, apps open quickly and running multiple apps is not an issue.
  • Works perfectly with my K480 Keyboard and is essentially a 12 inch notebook when used this way.

Now on to the negatives:

  • When the screen falls asleep it can be a pain to wake it up. It can take 2-3 seconds to respond to a mouse click or to pressing the Windows button. I have learned to click once on the mouse or Windows button and be patient so this is not a major issue.
  • I have been unable to increase the RAM speed to 1600 MHz as this may require a BIOS update which I have yet to find.
  • The Touch screen does not allow me to choose an operating system on boot-up, although I can switch to Android or back once booted in.
  • The Chuwi Forum is a horrible place to find info on this device. The downloads/tutorials are almost indecipherable and just joining the forum took me over a month to get a link to verify my email address.

However, considering the $235 price tag, I would still recommend this tablet to anyone looking for long battery life and a great display. Sorry, you won’t see any game testing results here because I sort of outgrew those when I became an adult.

Below you will find the usual crappy video…enjoy!

Last but not least this post was written on the Chuwi Hi12 running a VM perfectly in Linux, just thought I would point that out.

That is all for now,

Tim
