Chuwi’s answer to Alldocube KNote?

More likely, at first glance, you can definitely see the similarities between the two. But the much cheaper price tag of Chuwi Surbook Mini would be its biggest selling point. Also one major difference is that the Surbook Mini design is based on the Surface Pro 4, that includes kickstand and keyboard placement similarities. It also has a 3:2 Aspect Screen and offers a bit more IO’s.

  1. Hi, I just wanted to ask, if the Chuwi Tablets normally only work with their own original stylus pens, or also with other ones? Because this one comes up with the Hipen H2, which isn’t a great stylus?!

    1. Hello Tobias,

      I have more experience with the HiPen H3 of the Chuwi Hi13. Both Stylus are quite different, the HiPen h2 only works on the Chuwi Hi12.

      Best Regards,

  2. Hmmm, but regarding to the description on Gearbest, it works with the Hipen H2. (Which is also used for the Chuwi Hi 10 Pro/Plus if I’m right)?
    Could you recommend this tablet, if I use it only for my studies (pdf, office, internet)? Of course a fine Stylus or Keypad as an extra would be fine 🙂

    1. Hello Tobias,

      I will be reviewing this tablet as soon as it is available. I could not really say if the stylus great or not. But, I don’t think it has the same accuracy and sensitivity offered on the Chuwi Hi13.

      Best Regards,
