Lenovo introduced to us at the MWC 2017 the new Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320. Its new 2-in-1 device can get the best from being a fully functional laptop or being a tablet.It has a detachable keyboard, productivity-enhancing tools and the most important, a 10-hour battery life. And if you want to relax the 10.1” FHD display and stereo speakers will help you release all the anxiety over you. And with super-fast WiFi (plus optional LTE), the Miix 320 is ideal for both work and play.
On the other hand we have the Chuwi Hi10 Pro, a dual boot Windows 10-Android 5.0 tablet, that can also take extra docking keyboard and a stylus pen to use and comes with a 10.1″ display. All these at a very low price comparing it to a real windows notebook. But let us see, between these two, what one can choose!?
The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 comes as we said with a 10.1″ display and 1920 x 1200 resolution. Supports touchscreen, so you can easily work with it without the need of a mouse. The Miix 320 comes with 1 x USB Type-C 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x Micro HDMI, 1 x Micro SD and a Audio combo jack. It can take a Nano SIM to work with GSM, so you want have to search everywhere you go a free WiFi signal. The Miix without the docking station weights only 550 g, when with the docking station the weight increases to 1020 g. As for the thickness, when we have only the Miix 320, the thickness is 9 mm, but when we add 8.5mm thickness of the docking keyboard, it all becomes 17.5mm.
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro comes also with a 10.1 inch screen display and the same screen resolution, since it is also 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). The screen is also touchscreen, capacitive IPS. The Chuwi supports TF card slot for entering extra storage card and has also Type-C USB, 1 x Micro HDMI, 2 x Micro USB Slot, 3.5mm Headphone Jack. With the docking keyboard, the weight is 1.107 kg and has 26.70 x 17.40 x 2.70 cm as dimensions.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 comes with a Intel® Atom™ X5 Processor and for the graphics has a Intel® HD Graphics. Comes with 4 GB DDR3L RAM and up to 128 GB eMMC of internal storage. Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 is not dual boot as Chuwi and has only Windows 10 Pro installed.
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro comes also with a quad core Intel Atom X5-Z8350 clocked up to 1.44GHz. For graphics has the 8th Generation Intel HD Graphic. Comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded with up to 128GB with a TF card. Hi10 Pro supports Dual Boot with Windows 10 and Android 5.1
The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 is equipped with a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and a 2MP front camera with mic for using it as a webcamera. Features Stereo Speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio Connectivity. The Lenovo is also equipped with Bluetooth® 4.2 combo w/ Wi-Fi card, Wireless WAN and LTE (Optional).
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro on the other hand, the main camera and the front are only 2.0 MP. Supports all kind of audio format, video and images, so you can use it without any problem. It also features notification LED.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 according to the company, you can have up to 10 hours local video payback
The Chuwi Hi10 Pro comes with a 3.7V/6500mAh battery. Fully charged you can have up to 7 hours video playing time. You will need about 3-4 hours to fully charge the battery, using a AC adapter 100-240V 5V 3A.
Chuwi Hi10 Pro and Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 320 are two almost similar 2 to 1 tablets. They have almost the same specs, with the Lenovo to be a little in front because of the battery and the internal storage. It also supports SIM, which Chuwi doesn’t. Still the price is different, since the Lenovo is more expensive, so and this factor is important. If you want to get the Chuwi Hi10 Pro, I have found it at Gearbest in Flash Sales and for 204.99$. Lenovo you will have to wait a little bit to come to the stores, as only now was presented to us in the MWC. By the way, you can get official technical support here.
