Chuwi Hi9 Air: Design and Appearance

The Chuwi Hi9 Air design is typical and not much different from other tablets of its kind. The front is fully covered with glass and the white edges are fairly large. On the top is the 5.0-megapixel front camera and at the bottom is nothing.

The back and sides are made entirely of metal, which gives it an excellent feel and makes the tablet very light.

This may not be fun for everyone, but with a 10.1-inch tablet, the feel and weight are more important because of the size, so you can use it comfortably.

At the back is the 13.0-megapixel camera. In the middle of the “CHUWI”.

The top buttons for power and the volume rocker then consist of metal, have a great pressure case, do not wobble and are well incorporated into the housing.

Also with the arrangement of the connections, one thought very well with the Chuwi Hi9 Air and placed all sensibly.

On the top and the USB Type-C port is attached to the side, because so these connections can also be used when the tablet stands upright in the case or holder or if you have it lying on its feet.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Display

The Chuwi Hi9 Air in our analisis as a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with a 2K resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The IPS display has a pretty solid black level, color saturation, and contrast of the screen.Chuwi Hi9 Air Review: 10-inch Android tablet 2K Display & Low Price 2018

The sharpness is fine, but if you keep it close to the face is here and there to recognize a pixel but this is not really noticeable in normal distance operation.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Hardware and Performance

The Chuwi Hi9 Air in the analisis is equipped with the Helio X20 Deca-Core 64-bit processor, which is also used in the many smartphones in 2018.

The Helio X20 has a slightly higher clock rate and now supports Bluetooth 4.2. Otherwise, the inner values are the same and you can also count on the ARM Mali T880 with 900 MHz in the graphics unit.

If you compare the Helio X20 with the well-known competition of Qualcomm, then the counterpart is probably the Snapdragon 625.

However, the performance is easily enough for the most common applications and games. Depending on the variant, the SoC is supported by either 4GB RAM. Thus, proper multitasking is no problem.

In the highest resolution at e.g. Asphalt 8 or other games occasionally make light mini-jerks, but the most popular games like Modern Combat 5, MMX Racing, Asphalt Airborn 8, The Room Three and Hearthstone ran smoothly.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Software

The Chuwi Hi9 Air in the test runs with Android 8.0 Oreo and its own user interface, which most certainly know from Stock smartphones.

The language is multilingual and of course, also has English to choose from. However, the tablet is still intended only for the Chinese market and it is preinstalled in the factory state, neither the Play Store nor the Play services.

Otherwise, the surface runs absolutely smooth and fast. The icons in the Launcher I feel as a bit too big and visually they are also a matter of taste.

The latter can be adjusted via the in-house design app, as well as backgrounds and fonts. But here is much more designed for the Chinese market. The general view and font size can also be adjusted in the settings.

The Chuwi Hi9 Air in the review also supports multitasking, where you can easily share the screen, as shown in the last screenshot.

This feature also makes sense on a 10.1-inch tablet, because here you have at least enough space to see the shared apps still reasonable. Such a function, I still find the smartphones absolutely superfluous.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Connectivity

The tablet supports all common WLAN networks according to 802.11a / b / g / n / ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz), as well as Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS / Glonass / BDS.

All components worked in my test without problems and provide the usual range and accuracy.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Camera

As with largest tablets, the cameras are not the property standards and cannot play with the phone cameras. The Chuwi Hi9 Air uses 5-megapixel lenses with F/2.6 aperture for the front and 13 megapixel lenses with F/2.2 aperture rear camera.

In any case, the good front camera deserves special mention here, as it allows you to do decent Skype sessions or other video telephony without looking blurry or noisy.

With the main camera on the back, you can achieve quite acceptable results in good lighting conditions. But if it gets a little darker, then the pictures are quickly noisy, which is fine with a tablet, too.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Battery

The battery capacity of the Chuwi Hi9 Air in the test is 8000mAh and considering the large 10.2-inch 2K display, it has a very good battery life.

In the synthetic PCMark benchmark, it thus achieved a very good 10 hours of display-on-time (screen-on-time).

Of course, you do not manage such values but in my test, I spent almost 8 hours watching a lot of videos and playing some games.

For pure surfing and mailing are certainly 9-10 hours in it. What is often missing in tablets is also a quick charge function.

Chuwi Hi9 Air Review: 10-inch Android tablet 2K Display & Low Price 2018

The tablet supports Quick-Charge and with the 5V/2A China power supply (adapter required) it was fully recharged in 3 hours from 2% -100%.

These are top values for an 8000mAh battery. But the battery life and quick charge function would be enough for me almost purchase argument enough.

Chuwi Hi9 Air: Conclusions and Reviews

So I have to say that I am really surprised by the Chuwi Hi9 Air in our review because the tablet was able to convince me in all respects.

The Helio X20 processor does a good job and I did not jerk or lay anything. The basic version with 64GB of internal memory and 4GB of RAM should be sufficient for many, if not, you can also insert a microSD card with up to 128GB.

The Chuwi Hi9 Air is actually one of the few Android tablets that are a good idea and that you have not saved on all the components.

Nevertheless, the manufacturer has managed to offer the tablet for a good price, at least in China.
