I have not use that much yet, but so far it feels fast, and the screen is clear and crisp.

That’s will be all for today. I’ll publish a detailed review with my experience using the tablet in a few weeks. I’d like to thank Chuwi for sending HiPad LTE for review, and if you are interested in purchasing the device, you can do so on Aliexpress for $159.99, or $183.99 with the keyboard dock.
