Teclast X98 Pro Killer?

Maybe, considering the almost identical specs, it seems Chuwi is bound to compete directly on Teclast’s popular X98 Pro. Although it is generally a reboot, Chuwi did also point out that the Hi10 is also a reboot. If price is the main judging criteria, then the Chuwi Hi10 wins hard.

In terms of performance, don’t be misled that the new X5-8300 is not as good as the X5-Z8500 Chipset. Basically, both processors are the same with only a slight CPU speed advantage of the Z8500 (teclast X98 Pro). However, it was unfortunately found out that the X5-8500 chipset ran Hot even on moderate usage. That is why, the Z8300 chipsets were made. It runs on a slightly slower speed but also makes sure that the CPU runs cooler than the earlier released.

In addition, compared to the teclast X98 Pro, the Chuwi Hi10 does edge in terms of IO, it comes with USB 3.0 standard port which was clearly lacking on the X98 Pro. This gives it an advantage over transfer speeds and better functionality.

Bare bones

Everything about the Chuwi Hi10 spells X98 Pro, it is a full size 10.1 inch tablet and packs the latest Intel Atom Cherry Trail Processor with 4 GB RAM and runs Windows 10 Home Edition out of the box. The tablet bares similar specs to the Teclast X98 Pro, the first tablet to feature the Cherry Trail Soc. Although, the Chuwi Hi10 is a cheaper compared to the Teclast X98 Pro.

Best priced tablet

Probably it’s biggest advantage is the sub$200 price tag. The Chuwi Hi10 is now available and it is priced below $200, which is cheaper than the Teclast X98 Pro, considering most of their features are very much identical. It also offers the same premium built construction with the addition of a magnetic docking system for the keyboard. To sum up, PRICE, BUILD, and PERFORMANCE are the criteria you should take into account.

    1. Hello Akeem,

      I was also wondering about the difference in the capacity. But it seems, the correct battery is close to 6500mah, typical usage of 5 to 6 hours.

      Best Regards,

    2. I’m wondering why there are so many different technical specifications about the CHUWI Hi10? Most people who got one say, that it has only a Windows Home 32Bit. The other statment at most shops is, that it has at least one USB 3.0 slot (the small port), some advertising claim, that it supports up to 128GB micro SD. Also, I miss the micro HDMI port in this list. And some other claim that the Hi 10 also has dual boot of Windows 10 + Android 5.1. Are there so many variants or is this just not properly collected and incomplete knowledge?

      1. Hello Heinz,

        Most tablets nowadays have unfortunately a lot of variants on them. Some have only 2 GB, some have 4 GB, 32 GB storage 64 GB storage, etc… they are also mostly sold with only slight difference in specs. The Chuwi Hi10 is the companies entry to the Cherry Trail market and it competes with the teclast X98.

        Best Regards,

  1. I haven’t had the chance to test the x98 pro, but I bought the hi10 a few days ago and am a bit disappointed. The read/write speeds are horrible, i got a 17/13 rating in crystaldisk, and I only did this test because it was annoying when trying to watch a video, it would just keep buffering, the display is nice but it feels like it is held in place by duct tape and will fall out any moment, and the whole tablet is a bit warped, the keyboard decides to skip every 5th or 6th letter I type in if I type too fast. It’s only redeeming qualities are the full sized usb 2 and 3 ports, hdmi which I didn’t get to try, the display has very natural looking colors, 64bit win 10 home edition and battery life is pretty good. I will return mine tomorrow because it is disappointing.
