I think everyone is aware of dual sim mobile but very few people aware of dual OS tablet. I also came to know about it from one of my friend, he was looking for some gadget to gift her brother who is studying MBBS in China. He found so many online website like Tinydeal, DealXtreme, GearBest, Chinavasion and many more. After surfing so many website he came to know about Chuwi Hi8 Android 4.4 and Windows 8.1 Tablet PC from GearBest. He has not enough knowledge about technology and gadgets so he shared configuration with me and I am shocked that Chuwi Hi8 table have 2 OS. I have start research on it and decided to write post on this topic so that my readers also came to know about it.

Chuwi Hi8 Tablet Review
The Chuwi Hi8 have Android 4.4 + Windows 8.1 Latest dual systems with more excellent interface, compatibility and running effect. It is very easy to switch operating system from android to windows and windows to androird. Just one click and your OS will change Vice versa. You can also get Windows 8.1 Bing and includes one free year of Office 365. Windows 8.1 covers 10GB of free storage out of 32 GB dual boots, if you update it with windows 10 then you will get less storage so i believes that dual boots should have at least 64GB eMMC’s for storage. The Android 4.4.4 rom is quick and it will not slow down or hang. In Android you will get small 6.67GB free storage on internal storage which is not much enough to start download large games

Ports & Connectivity:
The Chuwi Hi8 has limited connectivity options, a MicroUSB port that has a maximum speed of around 40mb/s and the MicroSD card slot. Though speed is limited but it is working fine without any interruption in both OS. One of the best thing I like to see is microusb + the OTG cable. Not all tablets can do this.
The Chuwi Hi8 provide 4000mAH battery power and it is non removable. You can managed more then 3.5 hours under medium light with 40 brightness in Windows OS with WIFI on, which is one the most attractive feature i believe. I have researched about Heat issues for Chuwi Hi8 but did not get any negative point for heating problem. If your table is in idle mode then it will fully charge within 3 hours and if you are using it while charging then it may be takes more hour, it also depends on brightness of tablet
Rear camera is 2 mega pixel and clarity is pretty enough then other tablet which have same configurations. Few of people who are crazy about selfie photography they may be not happy with 0.3MP but I think if you want to use for professional work like skype video call with client or friends and family then it is good, front camera result is quite good
As per my thought Dual Operating systems with bright and super sharp display is really good to purchase within $100 to $150. The Chuwi Hi8 is combo of Android 4.4.4 and Windows 8.1. The quality of table is over all good. It is a very decent tablet considering its price.
