  1. How about the Chuwi Hi8 Pro?
    The Display have same resolution on smaller screen that makes it more crisp to look. Same Processor and Dual-OS with Android (5/Lolipop?) and Windows 10 include Office. For 100 $ include Keypad an absolutly ultra-budget deal with good Power, great Display – in an cute 8″ size. Not good enough?

    1. Hello Erich,

      Yes, Indeed before the Chuwi Hi8 Pro was really good for the budget, but I did not included it now because it is already discontinued.

      Best Regards,
      Vince

  2. Hi Vincent, love your website. Thank you. I have my eye on the Highbook Pro. 10 inch Laminated screen. Is it still a great buy. Or, should I go for the Plus. Both are similar in price.

    1. Hello Wanda,

      I am not really sure if the Hibook Pro is still available. But both tablets are quite good for the price, the Hibook Pro though has a much higher resolution screen.

      Best Regards,
      vince
