As mentioned in the introduction, I received not one, but two packages, because the company also included the keyboard dock.
The dock is comprise of a QWERTY keyboard with touchpad, the magnetic docking interface, and a foldable back to hold the tablet.
The tablet package comes with CHUWI HiPad LTE tablet itself, a power supply with USB-C cable, a multi-lingual user manual, a warranty card, product inspection report, and a pin to open the slot for the SIM card and/or microSD card.
That’s the bottom of the bottom with the dock interface.
We have the power and volume button on the top, as well as USB-C, 3.5mm audio jack, and microSD/SIM card slot on the left side.
The tablet fit nicely into the dock.
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.
