This is a fantastic tablet - I received mine a few weeks ago and the IPS screen is incredible at 1920x1280 - perfect for photos (if you are a bit tech savvy, see the bottom of this description).

It sports the usual Z8300 Atom processor but it handles the desktop Remix 2.0 OS, based on Android 5.1, really well. The OS itself is very decent, and allows you to run Android apps in re-sizeable windows. Interestingly (for me), it runs the VSCO photo app in landscape mode, something you can't do in Android by default.

Anyway, this tablet has sold for under £100 before, but this is coming from the EU warehouse, so you'll get it quickly and without customs charges (and it won't get caught up in the Chinese New Year, I suppose).

Couple of gotchas:

1. The tablet has a reputation for freezing occasionally - I would recommend doing your research and installing these fixes: konstakang.com/dev…ke/

The page also includes a fix for Google Play Movies, allowing you to play your purchased films on the device.

You will need to have a Windows device in order to do this, and it does require a bit of geekery.

2. The USB-C port is bizarrely deep! Whilst the included cable works fine, others may not. I had to shave a few mm of the plastic on my other cable for it to recognise devices properly

Just need to wrestle mine back off the missus now

Battery life is excellent so far, although keeping brightness down a bit is recommended (the screen is the same as the one on the Surface 3 - it is really bright).

This can be dual booted with Windows and Remix, or Windows and Android (stock) or Windows and Cyanogenmod. Will probably need a Window key though, I would guess.

The metal build is beautiful on this tablet, miles better than that of the plastic Chuwi Hi8 Pro, for example

I assume the keyboard presented in the images is not included, or is it? Thanks.

No, it's around £18 I think. It's not great to be honest, works OK on a solid surface, but a bit naff on your lap. There is a better, heavier keyboard with USB ports and proper hinges for the HI10 Pro which fits, albeit it's smaller than the tablet so looks a bit weird when closed. That one is around £30.

I've got two windows tablets.. one linx10 and a dell tablet with keyboard. the linx is a low powered atom processer and the dell is a decent mobile version i7.

both purchased through excellent hukd postings!

I would like to run android either within windows or as a dual boot.

what are my options? I did Google this however as there are others around here who may have bought the same and may have experience of this.

would appreciate your help.. cheers.

I have the vi10 ultimate, same CPU, win10 only, worse Res screen. Absolutely hate it. I no longer have sound and wi-fi (have to use usb), reinstalled the system after an update....the problem is back. These appears to be so common ,almost normal issues with this model but chuwi doesn't give a damn. Never again.

There are a host of ways to go about this depending on exactly what you want to do, you've not said that so I'll just bat out all the options I can think of

X86 android can run on many windows based tablets and devices - android-x86.org/

Remix OS is another alternative - jide.com/rem…xos

Bluestacks is generally the go to option for quick and easy running of emulated android OS in windows - bluestacks.com/

Finally you can use a virtual machine such as Virtual Box and install any version of Android that you like to it from Cyanogen to raw Android 7 images provided by google - virtualbox.org/

What is best for you really depends on your use case.

Is there a working custom recovery and stock Android MM or N for this? The 2GB RAM is a bit underwhelming given the other specs tbh.

​to be honest I want both to have a fast usable android desktop experience... for browsing .. YouTube.. Netflix.. Plex... and downloading apps from play store. will not do android gaming or or emulation games for those devices as I have a shield for that.

I bought both for productivity mainly ms office . however when I am not doing that I do find android better for the other stuff like browsing and media consumption.

Doesn't include the keyboard though but I suppose considering the price you can't complain!

I have dualbooted remixos on a number of devices. So google that and your product. My asus t100 had problems as it is a 64 bit processor but 32 bit version of windows. And it only had 32gb c: drive and I couldn't install remix os to a memory card on d: drive but had to put it on internal flash drive which limited space.

For my other laptops with big internal hard drives, I have no problems installing remixos. So your dell might be a great option

Look at Modaco.com
You will find custom Remix 2.0 ROM (same as stock but with freezing problems and keyboard issues - which are common - solved!). The same guy also builded Cyanomod 12 and 13 Rom for this Chuwi VI10 which you'll find at the same forum.
I tried Cyanomod 12 and it was great but sound was lost when using Kodi so I am back again at custom Remix 2.0.

Edited by: "MiFan" 25th Jan

I recommend this Chuwi VI10 Plus but only if you know or want to learn how to flash custom ROM.
This tablet has some issues but they can be solved by installing custom rom. After that, it is a great tablet at this price!!
Check out the posts by at modaco.com for rom and some guidance.
Don't expect future updates (i.e. Remix 3.0) because there won't be any. Also you will never get any support from Chuwi as they don't know the meaning of service or support...

Indeed, stock rom gets updates, but don't know for how long. As this is custom rom, it will not be automatically updated.​Maybe the guy who made the custom ROM, KonstaT, will provide updates. You could always ask about his plans on that at the forum. Its really a great tablet once you flashed it, but I agree its a shame manufacturer refused tonsolve the problems himself and won't provide future updates. Don't think Chuwi will make it in the long run...

Hi, i'm considering buying this, did you buy from the EU warehouse, if so how long was delivery? Any other tips/advice?

Thanks

Mine came from the EU warehouse, took 5 days but that included a weekend. You will definitely have to flash the custom rom mentioned above, mine was a little unstable without it, with some lockups.

I'm running Lineage OS 6.0 on mine at the mo (Marshmallow) and it runs really well (few quirks in the build, but nothing major). Considering buying another for £109...Just because...!

Its a great tablets considering the price. But not without issues.
I now have a broken screen. I was just trying to wipe some fingerprints from the screen with my sleeve, not pressuring to hard and then...it cracked! Just like that! No force used at all. Must be really, really thin glass.
Found a new digitizer so when it arrives I will try to replace it. Fingers crossed.

That's a really helpful post. I have t100 chi with 64 gig internal memory. I have set up dual boots with Linux before, but was a bit nervous trying to dual boot android with this machine. Does the 32 bit version of Windows cause a lot of problems?

It's a bit over my head as due to Microsoft security and that has changed over years. The problem is UEFI security? In the old days, you could install Linux and other distros on your computer and GRUB would come up and you would choose an operating system? I used to have problems sometimes when windows would try and take over and destroy grub...

These days windows prevents anything affecting the boot menu too. It's an anti virus tool I guess.... but it conveniently stops you using other OS How nice for Microsoft!

That's why I had to go to xda forums who had a special version for 64 bit processors with 32 bit versions of windows. So it wasn't the 32 bit version of windows per se, but the make up of the machine. If it had a 32-bit processor then might have been easier?

Thanks a lot for that! Could you let me know what I should be searching for on the xda forums?

Down to £109.02 now This runs very well on KonstaT's CM12.1 (Lollipop) and Lineage OS 13 (Marshmallow) builds, and the screen is beautiful.
