Chuwi Hi9 Plus Overview: When your smartphone isn't enough

BySigismondo Eisenhower 2019-07-31 857

Despite a wide range of tablets, finding the right device at a reasonable price is not easy. As a rule, all the main chips get expensive top-of-the-line devices. Chuwi has released an affordable Android model Hi9 Plus with a bright 2K display, a powerful processor, stylus support and the ability to connect a branded keyboard.

Chuwi Hi9 Plus 

2K large screen

Chuwi did not save money on the screen and put a colorful 10.8-inch IPS-matrix with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels. The density of the image is 279 ppi, so it is almost impossible to see individual points of view.

It is possible to visit only on frameworks. Many people have already been spoilt by frameless smartphones: I want the full-screen format to reach the tablets in bulk. Otherwise there is nothing to pick on - the picture on the display looks bright and juicy, and viewing angles are close to the maximum.


Brightness is enough to work outside, and the minimum level of illumination does not irritate when using the device at night. Also on the glass is a qualitative oleophobic coating.

Keyboard and stylus

The manufacturer offers to purchase the keyboard together with the tablet right away. It is made of soft plastic and can be used as a case.

To connect the keyboard has a special magnetic pad through which to recharge the accessory. Surprisingly, the construction is quite reliable - it does not fall apart, even if you use it, putting it on your lap.


With a keyboard, Chuwi HI9 Plus looks like a regular laptop. It's easy to type, and you can print with a pleasant tactile response. Today we offer a lot of functional office applications on Android, including Microsoft Office, and with them Hi9 Plus is quite capable of replacing a personal computer. Anyway, for those users who need a simple work with Word, Excel, letters and other programs. There are a lot of hotkeys here: switching the language, launching the browser and e-mail, blocking the screen and others.


In addition, it is possible to purchase a corporate stylus. It is powered by a pinky (type AAA) battery and work comfortably with it. Scripts can be different - you can draw, take handwritten notes or use it instead of a mouse.

Two SIM cards for work and entertainment

Chuwi Hi9 Plus has two slots, and both can work in LTE-networks. Usually one SIM card is enough for the tablet, but the second one can be useful in roaming. You can use the spare card for hands-free or headset conversations - the device has a standard application for calls. Also, the new product has a dual-band Wi-Fi with 5 GHz support. This allows you to connect to a faster and less busy Wi-Fi network. The main thing is for the router to support this feature.


On board is the Mediatek Helio X27 eight-core processor, running at up to 2.6 GHz, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. If space seems small, internal storage can be easily expanded with microSD cards up to 128 GB.


With 4 GB of RAM, you can open two applications on your tablet and run them without any braking. You can launch the video on YouTube in one window and edit the text in the second one - Hi9 Plus will never stumble.

The processor's power is sufficient for smooth operation of the interface and quick start of programs. In resource-intensive games like PUBG or Asphalt 9 you have to set minimal graphics settings, but most of the others work without any problems.


Two stereo speakers provide loud and clear sound with clearly defined deep bass. A portable speaker somewhere in the open air can not replace the tablet, but at home you can safely watch the movie without connecting additional accessories.

Battery: two days standby

The Chuwi Hi9 Plus has a 7000 mAh battery. It's not a record-breaking battery for a large 10.8-inch screen and a powerful processor, but it will last seven to eight hours of continuous operation at medium brightness. With normal use (documents, a couple of hours of watching videos on YouTube and surfing the web), the battery lasts for two full days.


One of the most important parameters for the tablet is the video playback time. Such gadgets are designed to lie in bed at the weekend and watch the series. And here Hi9 Plus did not fail: it lasted more than 11 hours at average brightness. Enough to pass the time on a long flight. An hour of playing in PUBG took about 20% of the charge, which is also a good result for a mobile device.

Android 8.0 Oreo without extra software

The manufacturer did not come up with its own superstructures and shells - Hi9 Plus runs on pure Android 8.0 Oreo.

Note that the interface is adapted to a large diagonal. The notified curtain is pressed against the right or left edge, depending on which side you make the pile down. The default browser opens all sites in the desktop version, not the mobile version. The majority of office applications are also sharpened to work with tablets, so it is convenient to interact with them.

Single camera for video calling

Chuwi Hi9 Plus 


Of course, hardly anybody plans to use a tablet instead of a camera all the time. However, sometimes there are situations when the smartphone is discharged or not at hand, and you need to take something off immediately. To do this, Chuwi Hi9 Plus has an 8MP camera installed. It is simple, but for undemanding tasks it is quite acceptable.


Front camera also received an eight-megapixel module. It is not very suitable for selfies, but for video calls - more than.

Verdict

The camera is medium, but at the same time it is a powerful device with a large 2K screen, good memory and decent autonomy. You can use the Hi9 Plus as standard for watching videos, toys and surfing the web, and for working with documents and handwritten notes it's better to buy a branded keyboard and stylus.
