One of the advantages of buying this tablet, is that it has built-in keyboard. It also has a singularity. And it is that the keys have shifted almost 1.5 mm, so that it resembles as much as a laptop. And if this were not enough, there is more, as it opens as if it were a “book style” cover. Ideal to protect the screen when we have to move from one place to another.
Also the screen incorporates in the back a flap, which when deployed is used as a foot. Thanks to this system it is not necessary to resort to the sling.

Comparison between the Lenovo MIIX 510 and the Chuwi Hi10 Plus
With these features, it is clear that the Lenovo MIIX 510 is a strong competitor compared to other tablets with Windows 10, such as the Chuwi Hi10 Plus, although taking into account that there are important differences between them.
Although both work with the same operating system, Chuwi Hi10 also integrates another OS, in this case based on Android, and is named Remix OS 2.0.
As for the design, the two teams bet on the same metallic materials. The MIIX 510 is much more compact. This difference in measurements between one and another, translates into the size of the screen. While the Lenovo convertible features a 12.2-inch panel, the Chuwi Hi10 Plus only reaches 10.8 “.
Internally there is no color. Although they share Intel CPUs, the power of a next generation Intel Core processor (Lenovo MIIX 510) in any of its versions, is not the same as a Cherry Trail Z8300 (Chuwi Hi10 Plus), despite the good performance of this latest.
The Lenovo tablet (minimum 128 GB) also doubles in ROM to the Chuwi (64 GB). And the pack of cameras of the Hi10 Plus (2MP + 2MP) is not the same, than those that have integrated the MIIX 510 (5MP + 2MP).
