Reviews for the Chuwi Hi12

78.4% Chuwi Hi12 Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Low-cost Surface alternative. The old Surface Pro 3's screen, aluminum casing, up-to-date Atom and Windows 10 for an affordable price of 232 Euros (~$259) sound tempting. Read where Chuwi had to make cutbacks in the following test report.

12":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.825 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


78.4%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
