The Chuwi HiBook News: Edition 2

The HiBook in LogiTab mode

After having owned the Chuwi now for a bit over a week I am extremely happy with it’s performance and speed in both Windows 10 and Android.

So here I am using it again today to post on THE Tablet Test Server site using it as a very slick little notebook with my Bluetooth K480 Logitech keyboard and Logitech wireless mouse.

The only issue I have noticed was a tendency in Windows 10 for it to drop the connection, but ONLY when I am in my secret writing location having a meal. No idea why, but I still suspect that this restaurant has some wireless router issues, because they have all their connections running on the same channel, which is a huge mistake by their IT guy, but since that isn’t me, I just have to deal with it.

Other than that one minor issue I am extremely pleased with my purchase of this device and would easily recommend it to anyone shopping for a 10 inch class tablet.

I have done some testing in Android also and it appears to be very fast and plays games rather well. If you click here you can see a short video of video performance running N.O.V.A. 3. The game play was flawless although I got killed immediately as usual.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Why A Simple MicroSD Card Might Be More Than You Think

Today we are talking microSD cards and a little about the Chuwi HiBook 10.1 inch tablet. Cool inexpensive microSD and a very slick little, but older tablet.

Videos or Links Mentioned in the video:
Silicon Power microSD on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2GQHaJx
ComFast Dual Band Wireless ac adapter: http://shrsl.com/?hdt4

A new microSD card for your phone isn’t really a big deal. Unless you need that smaller microSD card for your old tablet, which was the case today.

You see I can no longer access Win 10 on this tablet since the last creators update wiped out all the admin accounts! So that means the only useful portion is the Android portion of the tablet which has a mere 9.5 oGB or so free.

Hence my burning need for that 32 GB microSD card inside my NUU Mobile G3 which got itself a 128 GB card in return.

So below you will find the video I shot today giving you a bit more detail. Please make sure to give it a thumbs up and share it!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

Strangely alike, these two.

Sometimes we do things without realizing and other times we just become creatures of habit, but I was staring at my 2 displays tonight, on the Chuwi Tablet and on the Dell PC monitor…

Looks like I could use a little variety in my desktop display choices. On the other hand, a P51 Mustang is a killer aircraft, no pun intended and has to be one of the finest propeller driven aircraft ever produced, although there is a good argument for the Spitfire also, but both share that Rolls-Merlin engine.

Just an observation here. Nothing technical to discuss. But hell, the purpose of the tablet test server is to simply see what it can do, so post content is sometimes less important than posts themselves. I also checked the Asus notebook, yeah same desktop look. But I am happy to report that the Linux Lite VM on  the tablet has a Lamborghini desktop image and the Asus Linux Lite VM has the image seen below.

Since I Covered Screenshots in Windows 10 on a Tablet, Here is the Video!

My previous post covered most of the basics, but for those who must have video I have spent a few hours creating one of how to do a screenshot on your Windows 10 Tablet.

I shot the video using a free video capture program but needed to find a way to add audio. I found that Windows 10 has a built-in audio recorder so I shot the video first and then did my best to record an audio track while I watched it. It is slightly out of sync, but it does get the point across.

Incidentally this was all done on the Chuwi HiBook, then edited on the very same tablet in a Virtual Machine running Linux Lite 3.2, in a program called Openshot, which is a free video editor. It took a bit to get all the options in OpenShot right so we could have audio/video, but once done the result was not bad.

So without further introduction, here is the video…

That about covers it! Well not quite, obviously you are curious about that Openshot video editor I mentioned, so I did a video…

Today’s Test on The Chuwi HiBook: Installing Revive Adserver

I rather like Revive Adserver, because first of all it is free and secondly, it works quite well.

Now of course I really have no real use for it on this site, but I just had to know if it would run. So this morning I installed it, created a few adverts and it seems to function quite well. Any of the adverts you see on here that point to Gearbest.com are actually running from the Revive Adserver on the Tablet here.

So it does work, I am once again impressed by how much this little tablet can do and of course the ad server is only going to function on this version of THE Tablet test server, because I am not going to install it onto the Asus Notebook.

You can find a copy of Revive at this link.
