Chuwi Hi8 is a tablet PC. What does it mean? It means that in this single device we have well two operating systems to choose from when we turn it on! (this feature is called Dual Boot). The two OS to choose from are Android KitKat (that's why Chuwi Hi8 is considered a tablet) and Windows (and that's why it's also considered a PC).
Now let's look at the features that make this device a great buy:
- IPS WUXGA display (1900 × 1200 pixel) from 8 inches
- Intel Z3736F, Quad-Core CPU with maximum frequency of 2.16 GHz
- Seventh-generation Intel HD Graphic GPU
- 2 gigabyte of RAM
- 32 giga of internal memory, expandable up to 64 giga through micro SD
- Dual camera: rear from 2 MegaPixel and front from 0.3 MegaPixel
- Non-removable 4000 mAh battery
- Weight: grams 304
Analyzing the technical sheet we immediately notice how this is a superb device but with great flaw, the really painful camera, especially if we consider that the photographic sector on mobile is now at a high level, but it is still a tablet. My advice is to buy the Chuwi Hi8 if you need a PC on the move with a considerable battery both for work and leisure without giving up the versatility and customization of Android.
The question to ask now is: how much RAM (actual) and how much ROM (effective) will I have available?
Due to the partitioning of the internal memory, in order to install two OSs, the latter is not completely available for archiving, so when Windows is used the internal memory available will be 14 giga, while when Android is used the internal memory available will be around 7 jig; an advice? Better to buy a large micro SD card, but let's not forget about the OTG, fully supported by Chuwi Hi8.
As for the RAM, using Windows we will have the 2 giga completely available, while using Android (due to the different management of the video card) we will have a little less than 2 giga, exactly 1.87 jig.
