Why search for separate Windows and Android tablets when you can get both Operating Systems in one neat and affordable package? Meet Chuwi Hi 10 Pro, a 2-in-1 tablet that allows switching between operating systems even when it is running. Powered by Intel Quadcore Cherry Trail processor, the tablet performs well in most situations and offers all the power you would need to get your daily stuff done. An aluminum chassis, Full HD touchscreen and decent internals make the tablet a better choice, especially when you consider the asking price.
Chuwi Hi 10 Pro- Overview
Featuring dual-boot Windows 10 and Android Lollipop, Chuwi Hi Pro 10 is a sleek device with an eye-catching design and sturdy built. Although the quadcore Atom processor suffices for most daily tasks such as working with documents, browsing the internet and watching videos, it’s not meant for serious gaming and heavy multitasking. The case is not only visually appealing, it’s also strong and feels good to touch. The matte finish is a much better design choice as glossy surfaces often turn out to be fingerprint magnets. Weighing 563 grams and only 8.5mm thick, the tablet is one of the lightest and thinnest budget devices around and is very easy to hold and use.
The Full HD IPS display offers excellent viewing angles and can get quite bright when needed. Although the tablet is not meant for serious gaming, it still manages to smoothly play many titles such as Dead Trigger 2 and Asphalt Xtreme. You may have to decrease the resolution and graphic details all the way down to make some games playable. Loudness of tablet speakers is something that concerns most users, but Hi Pro 10 features dual speakers that can get pretty loud, but don’t expect miracles in terms of sound quality.

The tablet offers many features hard to find in budget tablets, including slim metal design, stereo speakers and a vivid bright display. The battery life is ok, but not outstanding, while the tablet charges in an acceptable amount of time.
