CHUWI UBook X Review: Windows 10 tablet with solid portable performance

CHUWI UBook X 1

Over the years we have known the options in the market of CHUWI, a manufacturer of Chinese origin that has specialized in the largely forgotten world of tablets and that is gradually approaching the experience of laptops. One of its most recent proposals is called CHUWI UBook X and allows a hybrid operation in exchange for a competitive price.

CHUWI UBook X is a mid-range tablet that seeks to offer solid portable performance while incorporating an external physical keyboard accessory to complement its Windows 10 operating system to function like a whole computer. Details such as a QHD screen, 8 GB of RAM and internal SSD storage are some of its most interesting proposals .

A tablet that becomes a computer

Today almost every leading manufacturer in the industry has at least one line of hybrid equipment that allows you to directly undock your screen from the keyboard or rotate the latter 360º to adopt different forms of display. In all these cases, the prices that are requested in return are usually high, so it is logical that CHUWI wanted to simplify the proposal but fulfilling the same objective.

Thus, CHUWI UBook X is a conventional black tablet built in an aluminum alloy that unfortunately does not reduce the bezels around its screen as is a trend in the world of mobile phones, while its official dimensions remain at 292.19 x 207.89 x 9 mm and the weight in the 780 grams.

However, on the back of the device there is a metal retractable hinge that can be used to leave its screen upright and thus be coupled with an external keyboard that includes all the keys and even a tactile touchpad to efficiently emulate the user experience of a laptop but in a 12 inch environment.

In this way, there is no doubt that, although its total size does not make it the most comfortable model to spend long hours doing activities, it is small and light enough to constantly move it between rooms or even take it with you outside the home and go out. of trouble when answering an email, using an office tool or simply consuming multimedia content.

Excellent screen and greater fluidity

CHUWI UBook X has the best in its QHD screen

In relation to the last mentioned, the key of this team focuses on the general quality of the screen, since its IPS-type panel stays at 12 inches so as not to become too uncomfortable during use as a tablet, but at the same time its 2160 x 1440 pixel native resolution allows for above-average sharpness .

If you are interested in what is inside the CHUWI UBook X, the processor chosen is a quad-core Intel Gemini Lake N4100 clocked at 2.4 GHz , so you should not expect great power or think about too demanding activities, although it It comes with an Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU and 8 GB of DDR4 RAM for greater fluidity when multitasking.

Finally, we can mention the presence of a battery with a capacity of 38 Wh (5000 mAh), internal storage of 256 in SSD format for higher speeds of reading / writing of files, 2 megapixel front camera for video calls and a rear sensor of 5 megapixels, and factory installed Windows 10 operating system.

Comparison with Chuwi Hi10 Go

The intention for the protagonist of this analysis is not the first by the manufacturer, since previously we have been able to meet other tablets with an external keyboard and Windows operating system. One of them is Chuwi Hi10 Go , a version that, as its name suggests, further reduces the available screen size to 10.1 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.

If comparisons are made in the specifications present in both models, the Chuwi Hi10 Go is clearly below by combining an Intel Celeron N4500 dual-core processor with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage . That is why there is not much to think about when choosing between one and the other as long as you are willing to pay a little more change money.

PROS:

  • QHD resolution screen
  • Fluidity thanks to 8 GB of RAM memory
  • Integrated SSD storage
  • Allows you to convert it into a small laptop

CONS:

  • Processor model could be better
