Chuwi Hi10 Design
The body of Chuwi’s popular Windows tablet Chuwi Hi10 is, according to the manufacturer, constructed using “6-series aviation aluminum alloy with a CNC sandblasted oxidation”. Due to it, the tablet brings premium and solidly built with absolutely no flex.
The display is a 10.1-inch fully laminated model with a full HD resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. There’s no oleophobic layer to minimize the impact of fingerprints on the viewing experience. Therefore, it can and will get quite dirty. Note that there’s no Windows button which means that there’s no oversized bezel.
All four sides have edges less than 10mm thick with a 2-megapixel perched on the top one. Speaking of edges, they’re all curvy and round, which is in sharp (pun intended) contrast to what the competition offers. The rear of the device contains a protruding 5-megapixel camera sensor.
Chuwi Hi10 Hardware
The biggest selling point of the Hi10 Go is the processor that powers it, the Celeron N4500. The latter is based on the Jasper Lake architecture. Launched earlier this year, it uses a newer 10nm lithography which in theory allows for higher burst frequencies and lower power consumption/dissipation.
Chuwi claims that the Chuwi Hi10 Go display reaches 400 nits of brightness. Well, even if that’s true, the sheer glossiness of the display makes it very difficult to view content on the screen in sunny outdoors.
The use of a dual-core processor, in this day and age where even entry level smartphones run on eight cores, is simply unacceptable. Single thread performance was adequate, easily the best amongst any Celeron processors to date, but was not enough to move it from the last position on our benchmark. The overall performance of the device was made worse by the use of eMMC memory. The latter, at its best, is about half what SATA-based SSD can achieve.
