It Appears That I am Not the Only One Interested in the Chuwi Hi12!

Tonight after doing a whole bunch of what I do best, which is web site creation and editing, I did notice that the tablet at the top of my list on Gearbest was out of stock!

While that is no big deal for me, it is enough warning to let folks know that if you do intend to shop from an overseas retail joint you need to make your mind up in the next 12-24 hrs!

Obviously there are other choices, such as Amazon, but you will pay more for the very same product.

Personally, for your’s truly I am pretty much hooked on the Chuwi Hi12 because of the great reviews and the reasonable price.

Of course if you happen to be looking for yourself and not for a gift, then this still might be a good choice for a very inexpensive tablet since the site still is showing them at $250.

Time is short folks, so check those sites and order in the next 1-2 days!

Tonight We Have a Video Shot On The Hi12. It Really is a Great Tablet!

Flashback Player/Editor/Upload Screen

Tonight I finally took the time to shoot some screen video on the Hi12 and offer my opinions. It is pretty short and to the point, but it really came out well.

The one thing that clearly works better on the Hi12 is the microphone. Although there is a bit of hiss, it is much louder than the HiBook.

I actually uploaded this video at 1080p resolution, so it took a few minutes, but I was able to also take a screenshot and edit it at the same time.

So below you will find the short review of the Hi12. Which is still on sale here for $234.99!

That is all for now,

Chuwi Hi12 Battery Life: Far Better Than I Thought It Would Be

The Chuwi Hi12 and the Logitech K480

I have been using the Chuwi Hi12 now for a almost 2 weeks and for basic office chores in Windows 10 it beats any tablet/laptop I have ever owned. I run it with a pretty short screen timeout of 2 minutes and the brightness just under 50%

My average day consists of updating several websites, uploading images and videos of new cars in stock onto the server and editing various Excel and Word files and of course answering email. That also includes my checking my two personal sites, both this one and Tim’s Tablet Web Site.

So at the end of roughly a 9 hr day how much battery do I have left? Today is was 49%! Yeah, I could have easily gotten another 3 hrs of work related tasks out of it easily. That is roughly the average I have seen, anywhere from 46% to 53% battery remaining.

You can still find one of these for a reasonable $235 from Banggood.com.

That is all for now,

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Notebook/Laptop

This is a laptop/notebook/2 in 1, but it is a great video and well worth watching. The Samsung Galaxy Book is a premium little 2 in 1 notebook type device and it seems to be a bit better than it’s predecessor.

It has a 8 GB ram, a fantastic display with 2160 x 1440 resolution and yes that is a Super AMOLED type display!

It has great specs and like all things Samsung has a rather steep price. But enough with the intro, here is the video from Andrew over at AMDtech.

That is all for now,

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.
