CHUWI Mini Pad V88 makes a great iPad mini alternative

The Chinese Android tablet has really struggled to find it’s niche and take off, but with the advent of smaller 7-inch devices such as the CHUWI Mini Pad V88 things a looking up!

Ever since the original iPad launched, Chinese manufacturers have tried to emulate it’s success with low-cost Android units. The original Chinese Android tablets were (for want of a better word) terrible, but the new breed of 7-inch options have really shown Chinese manufacturers the root to take.

The CHUWI Mini Pad V88 is another iPad mini inspired Android tablet, but like many of the other options out there the CHUWI is more affordable and decked out with better hardware.

A 1.8Ghz quad-core Rockchp RK3188 processor with Mali 400 GPU and 2GB RAM ensures Antutu scroes are well in the 17,000 range and a 7.9-inch 1024 x 768 display offers enough clarity without eating into the 4000mAh battery to quickly.

Just as the iPad mini has dual cameras so does the CHUWI with a 0.3MP front camera and 5 mega-pixel rear, but this being an Android tablet you also get support for a 32GB SD card, 1 x micro USB and 1 x HDMI out.
