appearance and ergonomics.

At the bottom end of the tablet, the manufacturer has placed a magnetic connector for the keyboard signature, on the left side connectors (micro-HDMI, micro-USB, USB Type-C, headphones) microphone and a slot for microSD card. Since the speakers are located on both sides of the tablet, you get stereo sound. On top there is a button on/off switch and rocker volume control.

At the back and the front side has a camera of 2.0 MP. The quality of shooting they are far from perfect, but for Skype and taking pictures of your documents will fit. On the front there is a light sensor and a charging indicator. Tablet case all metal with no plastic inserts. Assembled tablet on the conscience, it does not Flex, squeaks and no backlash.

Display.

Chuwi Vi10 Plus оснащен 10,8 дюймовым IPS экраном в 1920×1280 пикселей (такой же дисплей на планшете Microsoft Surface 3). В сравнении с аналогичными устройствами в этом сегменте, его экран неплохо откалиброван, имеет хорошую цветопередачу и неплохой запас по яркости. Под углами изображение практически не засвечивается и остается темно серым, что очень хорошо для IPS матрицы. Поскольку oleophobic coating нет, то рекомендую не снимать защитную пленку. Нужно сказать, что экран немного бликует, но это в какой-то степени можно компенсировать яркостью.

OS and interface.

The tablet running Remix OS 2.0 (in fact this is the Android version 5.1.1). There is also a Desk, searching, sorting, and the ability to create folders. At the bottom right are icons brightness control, keyboard, battery percentage, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and hours with a date… In the Russian >to make screenshot (you can also do standard), switch to full screen mode (ask) and setting

Performance.

A feature Remix OS is that many apps and different settings can run in a window. In this mode, it is very convenient to work not only with folders, but with non-optimized for large screens by applications like Twitter.

On the capabilities of the tablet I propose to proceed from the presented tests such as AnTuTu and Geekbench… it Should be noted that the tablet Chuwi Vi10 Plus is not the most productive among similar devices, and it is connected most likely with not very fast reading and writing data on flash-pamyati.

At the request of the manufacturer, he installed it on the tablet battery has a capacity of 8 400 mAh. A lot of guys from different corners of the globe were subjected to various tests. For example, when playing a video on YouTube channel with 720p resolution and relative brightness of 50%, the tablet for hour sat only 16%. Therefore, in this mode it can play videos from the channel of about 6 hours.

At 100% screen brightness for an hour of play the same movie the village by 20%. The conclusion is that in this mode, the tablet can play videos for about 5 hours. In mixed modes it is able to work about 7 hours. The overall picture of the technical characteristics looks like this:

Summarizing. The overall impression of this device I have two. From one side reasonable price, and the other is a little buggy device. Most likely in the next update everything will be fixed, but I'm going to come out of the situation at this hour.

I liked the fact that the device has technology stylus PEN, OTG support, decent IPS display with calibrated colors and brightness stock. Fun is also on this tablet, despite the fact that some games like Asphalt 8 in certain places FPS drops almost in half (from 50-40 FPS to 20).

short oleophobic coating, a weak camera and glare on the screen. I recommend to use the above and attached instructions for this tablet to install Windows 10, because on it he runs a little faster.
