The market for tablets continues to be in demand, but the supply is not as strong as what we find in the world of computers or smartphones. The Chuwi brand is not exactly unknown to Pplware readers, but still, it might not be the obvious option. Given its interesting and comprehensive product offering, we are testing the Chuwi HiPad Pro 10.8″, with case/keyboard and pen available.

Did it surprise? Come meet.

General Specifications

THE Chuwi HiPad Pro It comes equipped with a 10.8" screen, a very pleasant size to work with. The fact that it allows you to attach a keyboard and is pen-compatible increases your productivity.

The tablet offers a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and comes with a Helio G95 processor. It includes 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage and comes with Android 11. Additionally, it allows the inclusion of a microSD card.

In the tablet there is a battery with a large capacity of 7000 mAh, which guarantees about 10 hours of work. This is the value indicated by the brand, was it achieved?

The front camera, dedicated essentially to video calls, has 5MP and the rear camera is 8MP. Also noteworthy is the dual band ac Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C port and 4 side speakers for stereo sound reproduction.

Design and accessories

The Chuwi HiPad Pro tablet features a 10.8" screen and a very balanced size and weight. Its thickness is only 7.5 mm and weighs 455g.

It has a silver gray color, and is composed of two materials, metal and plastic. The difference in materials is perfectly perceptible to the touch, visually, despite the slight difference in colors, the finish is quite well achieved.

At the rear there is the module that couples the rear camera and the LED flash and on the side it still has a microphone. The back is also surrounded by magnetic contacts so that it is easily attached to the keyboard cover.

On the front, the screen is surrounded by a frame with a thin black line around it and another in white, which stands out, although with use it almost goes unnoticed. The camera is positioned in the upper left corner.

On the sides is the volume button and a microphone. On the left is the USB-C charging and data transfer port and the on/off button, below the SIM and SIM/microSD card slot. It should be noted that it does not have a fingerprint sensor.

The speakers (4) are positioned on both sides, with the tablet horizontally, and create a very interesting sound environment, both for music playback and for viewing movies or series. With the volume maxed out, the highs are impressively balanced, however the lows don't stand out.

The Chuwi HiPad Pro is sold only with a charger and its cable, however, there are accessories that bring greater utility, such as the Bluetooth keyboard cover, where the keyboard substantially increases productivity, being almost like a small notebook. In addition to this peripheral, there is still a pen with good touch response. In writing and drawing it is also a fluid accessory in your task.

The screen of the Chuwi HiPad Pro

The screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, with an aspect ratio of 16:10, a very interesting area to work on.

In terms of screen quality, the Chuwi HiPad Pro exceeded all expectations. The colors are realistic, it has a very good definition, it has good contrasts and the brightness adjusts to the most diverse scenarios, even in the most extreme, with direct light or in a very dark place.

Playing videos or games happens very smoothly, and has good touch response.

Performance

Chuwi HiPad Pro comes with a Helio G95 processor includes 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In practical terms, in Web browsing, editing and document management, reading PDFs and ebooks and using most apps, the performance is good, with no delay.

In video playback, in any mediaplayer, only a slight loss of fluidity was noticed in 2160p at 60fps.

In a game environment, everything also works smoothly, although of course, there are limitations and games with high graphic demands are harmed.

For comparison, we performed some performance tests:

  • AnTuTu 9.3.8: 322684
  • Geekbench 5
    • Benchmark CPU: 481
    • Compute Benchmark: 1531

This is not a tablet thinking about photography as the results are nothing surprising, and so the most intensive test was done during video calls, with results also as expected.

Autonomy of Chuwi HiPad Pro

Chuwi HiPad Pro comes equipped with a 7000 mAh battery and the charger that comes with the box is 5V/2A, so charging ends up taking a while. However, autonomy turns out to be a positive aspect.

From the tests we carried out, it was possible, in different scenarios, to reach values ​​between 8 and 10 hours of use, which ends up meeting what is announced by the manufacturer. This autonomy is ideal for a full day of work, which in the end turns out to be what many users want.

verdict

This Chuwi HiPad Pro is not the first model of the manufacturer tested here on Pplware and so we can see the evolution of the brand over the last few years.

The machine we had in our hands, in addition to a more careful construction, also features outstanding details, such as the high quality screen, the 4 speakers that, unlike previous versions, all work with a very interesting environment for the range. , and the compatibility with accessories that increase your productivity are factors to highlight.

In terms of performance, the truth is that it meets the most varied requirements, without really surprising, but also without major limitations.

THE Chuwi HiPad Pro tablet is available in Neptune Blue or Interstellar Silver, for just €233. You can choose to include the keyboard+cover and stylus (which we highly recommend) for just €37 additional.

Shipping is available from a European warehouse, with fast delivery and no additional fees.

Pplware thanks Chuwi for providing the Chuwi HiPad Pro tablet for review.
