Lately Chuwi is putting out a lot of new and varied devices lately. If we recently knew about the Hi9 Air, this Chuwi Hi9 Pro is presented as a lighter alternative in terms of size and memory, but keeping the processor and that big screen that characterizes it. It is also cheaper, so it can be an interesting alternative for those looking for a current Android tablet at a good price.
In today's review we take a look at the Chuwi Hi9 Pro, a tablet with Android 8.0 Oreo, Helio X20 CPU and 2K resolution screen.
Chuwi Hi9 Pro in review, one of the best tablets in the orbit of 100 euros
The truth is that it is hard to believe that a tablet like this is around 120 euros (about $ 140). However, it is something that is better understood when we consider its compact size. It does not reach the usual 10 inches, although we can not say that it is small: it stays halfway. "Neither for you, neither for me”, As that one would say. Of course, thanks to good hardware the set manages to look more than good.
Design and display
The Chuwi Hi9 Pro has an 8.4 inch screen (5-point capacitive) manufactured by JDI with 2.5D arched glass and a 2560x1600p 2K resolution Supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) video. Without a doubt, one of the best screens that we can see in today's mid-range tablets.
It has dimensions of 128.9 x 217.4 x 7.9mm, a weight of 384gr, has a black metal unibody finish and has several ports. On the one hand, we have a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port and slot to insert both an SD memory and a SIM card for data and calls. The latter is a characteristic more typical of a smartphone - unusual for tablets - which, in this case, gives the device a plus of functionality.
Power and performance
With regard to the "innards" of the Hi9 Pro, we find the aforementioned SoC Helio X20 10-core running at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, ARM Mali T880 at 780MHz and 32GB of internal storage space expandable up to 128GB via SD, along with Android 8.0 as an operating system.
It may not be the fastest tablet on the market, but the processor is really good, and for day-to-day tasks, the use of apps and navigation is more than enough. Especially for the viewing of videos and movies, where it has everything to win, thanks to that excellent screen that fits.
To give us an idea of his performance, his result in Antutu is a more than worthy 103,972 points.
Camera and battery
The camera, as we always say, is the weakest point of the tablets, and the Chuwi Hi9 Pro is not the exception either (people do not usually take photos with the tablet, it is what it has). On the one hand, we have a correct 8MP camera on the rear -made by Samsung- and a lens that is more in-person than anything else on the front, with a 5MP resolution.
Autonomy on your part has a 5000mAh battery, with a full charge time of about 2 and a half hours and a more than acceptable autonomy (between 7 and 8 hours), thanks to a processor that knows how to better manage its resources than other lower-end Mediateks.
The Hi9 Pro also has Bluetooth 4.1 and dual WiFi 2.4G / 5G.
Price and availability
Without a doubt, one of the best features of the Chuwi Hi9 Pro is its price. Currently we can get this tablet for € 119.37, about $ 137.99, on sites like GearBest. It is also available in other stores such as Amazon, with a slightly higher price of around 190-200 euros.
In short, a tablet of great value for money, compact and with more than decent hardware, ideal for watching videos, browsing and playing the odd game from time to time.
