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.
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.
