The Chuwi Hi9 specs is quite similar to the Teclast Master T8 which was also Teclast’s proclaimed Gaming Tablet. But on my review, it had serious issues with screen tinting, so  a bit of a disappointment really. Now Chuwi apparently adopted the same tablet size and also gaming moniker, an 8.4 inch 2560 x 1600poxe screen and Mediatek MT8173 chipset. I just hoped it is better than the Teclast Master T8.

According to the specs, it is an ultra thin tablet at just 7.9 mm on its thinnest end and does have a good size 5000mAh battery. It’s also stated to have Dual Band Wireless support. But what is lacking I think is USB Type C, why is it still MicroUSB 2.0?

Anyway, at its price point, it will certainly attract a lot of end budget users and with that screen, it’s a no brainer. What do you think of the Chuwi Hi9?
