On the other hand we have Onda V820W, from a well know company for its tablets. V820W is also a dual boot tablet, with many characteristics similar to Hi8 Pro, so I guess there will be a hard comparison.

Design

Chuwi Hi8 Pro has a premium, fancy look. It comes in an elegant white color. Made of polycarbonate; this device will be easy to clean. The interesting thing about this device is two unique metal portions on the sides, which are giving it a bit fancy and modern look. These parts are made for the device to survive accidental drops. It’s a great touch, by the way. You can attach an HDMI cable to TV screen or monitor if you want to create your private cinema at home. Onda V820w, on the other hand, comes with no charger included as the tablet is intended to sell worldwide. Either you use an existing one or grab a new 2A USB charger.

Display

Chuwi Hi8 Pro has an 8-inch capacitive IPS screen and provides a decent user experience considering video quality and Web surfing. The size of the screen will satisfy almost every user.

Intel HD Graphic Gen8 processor is in charge of the graphics-related tasks, and it provides fast and smooth performance. The processor used provides better performance and lower battery consumption, enabling more gameplay time for you. Combined with the 2 GB of RAM, you will have no trouble multitasking. But be sure that if you overload the system with bigger apps, lags are inevitable. Internal storage capacity is 32 GB with an option to expand with a TF card up to 64 GB.

Onda V820w on the other hand, thanks to Intel Z3735F Quad Core 1.3GHz processor with Intel HD Graphic Gen7 GPU, everything is running smoothly no matter in office applications or 3D gaming. 2GB RAM let you multi-tasking easily. Yes, you will have around 1.4GB free RAM for Android and 1.1GB on Windows 10 usually. As for storage, 32GB ROM lets dual boot possible while still have enough disk space left for you to install more apps and games. What is the user usable disk space? Onda partitions 20GB for Windows and 10GB for Android. But you only get around 10GB usable on Windows and 7GB on Android right after factory data reset. It may not be enough for you to install lot of big size games at the same time but thankfully there is external SD card slot to expand the storage.

Battery

Chuwi Hi8 Pro is powered by a 4000mAh battery, which can keep for a whole day of moderate usage. Knowing that the processor uses 20 % less battery power, you can enjoy a decent, near middle class performance, but don’t expect to last longer than a few hours of intensive use. If you like to watch your favorite movies all day long, recharging is a must.

Onda V820w battery life is quite good also. Its 4200mAh battery manages to provide 3 to 5 hours screen time on. Of course, this will depend on what you do. Battery life will be shorter when running intensive 3D games. And longer while just surfing Internet or listening to music. As for charging, it takes around 3 hours and a half to fully charge.

Operating System (OS)

Chuwi Hi8 Pro runs on both Windows 10 and Android 5.1, providing you a choice to change the OS anytime you like. This feature is a big plus, and pre-installed Windows 10 comes with the new Edge browser.

Onda V820W also works on dual boot with windows/android, but has installed Windows 10 and Android 4.4, instead of 5.1. Nevertheless, it works very good.

  3. This product looks amazing, can’t wait to see it in person! It looks like an all around amazing device ! As someone who is always purchasing new electronics for my house we are excited for this! The display and speed are impressive. The storage space doesn’t bother me at all as it had a SD slot which is easier for someone like me to transfer the items stored!

  4. Wow this really is an incredible tablet! So many wonderful features. If I had to pick which feature I like the most..it would be a tie between the hardware features and the nice size display. I am constantly multitasking and the amount of space on this…1.1-1.4 depending on which system is chosen is AWESOME…Also I love the fact that there is an actual choice of systems that can be used on this. Anything that can be held in the hands is perfect for me all around but with a product like this with so many amazing qualities it will be impossible to go wrong. Easy to travel with easy to “play” on and durable, you can not beat it!

  5. I love the way they make dual boot (windows and android). It’s best of both world. In other hand faster processor, great display and battery size make this device stand out above the competitors

    I absolutely love the fact it has an amazing display. A sharp image is what is a big factor to me in purchasing electronics. I watch a lot of movies so the picture has to be perfect. I would definitely share this with all of my social media as well as family and friends. I’m also involved in a lot of community programs where I would promote.

  7. I am very excited about this product, the looks, speed and display are all very attractive and appealing! It’s nice that there’s a SD slot as I don’t like storing a lot on a device (things get broken with kids!) it’s easier to transfer that way! Will write a review after I use one!

  8. I really like the fact that it has the option to switch from Windows 10 to Android capability. The design makes it easy to keep in my purse while still having a big enough screen to enjoy playing games or watching movies.

  9. My favorite feature of this tablet is it’s dual support of both Windows and the Android Operating Systems! I have been looking for a tablet that accomplishes this for a long time and believe that I have finally found it!!

    I also like the screen size ,it makes it easier to see and type.
    Chuwi HI8 Pro also has a SD slot which is an added bonus.Really excited about this Tablet.

  11. Bonjour, je suis a la recherche d’une tablette qui tourne sous Windows 10 , car j’utilise beaucoup le pack office en déplacement mais sur ma tablette android il n’est pas bien compatible.

    J’ai aussi les dernières norme au niveau de l’usb C, l’autonomie m’a l’air correct

    C’est surtout au niveau du processeur graphique et de la résolution de l’écran que cette tablette m’interresse

    L’extension de mémoire par carte SD et une bonne idée, car j’aime avoir avec moi, mes photos, films, ..

    It is wonderfull. I have never seen a product like it. I love it, i wanna review it and make other know how much it is fantastic. Hope you chose me. Thanks.

  13. Being a fan of Windows and Android, this product brings the two together. Having all the functions of Windows, especially for coding makes me ready to use it. You also get the great android response time. Again, it’s a two in one. Great product with great software.

  14. I own a windows phone and it’s less hassle than android and apple. Not that I prefer windows but I do like the look.
    The tablet is only about 8 inches which is something i would consider getting. It would be easy to bring with me to places.

  15. I for one have both types of devices: Windows 10 on my PC with the pre-installed Edge browser and Internet Explorer for applications that cannot yet support Edge. I have a work phone with with Adroid OS. I am amazed as this is the first dual boot mobile device I have ever seen.

    Since it takes an SD card slot to expand the storage , please tell me what size card it will take. Thank you! I love what I am reading so far!

  16. This would be amazing product and I like windows 10 to android operating system and it’s easier to play games and it’s the right size for me also it has a SD slot which a bonus I am excited about this tablet.

  17. Well first of all Im looking for a new device to replace my reliable Fire HD, what really gets my attention is the fact that it has 2 different partitions with two of the most known operating systems right know. Android is cool but if you work on the go like me android is not very suitable for office work on the go, then is where the Windows is so usefull. It has a 4000+mah battery wich is a BIG plus and has a decent RAM both of wich are not usual in its price range. Looking forward to making a full detailed review soon.

  18. I am not experienced at all with windows. I’m a Android gal. But I’m willing to learn. And it would be perfect to be able to Learn something new with the ability to switch back to what I’m used to using. That would be unbelievably awesome!!

  19. I like that this tablet would work well for both work and play. Since it is duel boot. I can run my windows programs as well as my android games. To me this is great. Would love to share this with my friends as well as on my page.

  20. Chuwi Hi8 Pro has a lot of amazing features. One feature that I absolutely love is that it runs on both Windows 10 and Android 5.1. Since this tablet has so many great features I just want to mention and point out a couple of my favorite features. It is equipped with the 64-bit Quad-Core Intel X5 series processor, set at 1.44GHz, with boosting option up to 1.84GHz. The Chuwi Hi8 Pro is combined with the 2 GB of RAM.
