ZenBalancer i'm looking for an answer to the same question. Also, if i understood correct, active stylus pens working properly depending on tablet's type of screen. I don't know what type of screen has the hi10 pro so i don't really know if there is any alternative working solution for another brand active pen.
As far as I know, if an active pen technology works on the same tablet, it would mean it's the same technology that Chuwi uses in the specific Hipen on that tablet. So if the technology of Chuwi is not good enough, then probably the same problem will be with the other pen from a different manufacturer if it works with Chuwi tablet.
That's why there are people who look for tablets that support Wacom active pen technology, and only specific tablets work with specific (Wacom) active stylus pen technology.
Active stylus tech is one regard sadly not like a passive capacitive stylus, working on all capacitive screens. There are passive capacitive stylus with very precise pen head/tip, so if the compatible active stylus is very bad, maybe the capacitive passive stylus might be better?
But there is no palm rejection with most apps using passive capacitive stylus. Some iOS apps like OneNote support built-in palm-rejection with a passive stylus because most iPads and iPhones don't support an active stylus tech.
And passive stylus also doesn't have pressure sensitivity.
Update: except for some "smart apps" like Google Keep drawing mode, with round "half bubble" stylus tip. When "calibrating" by pressing very softly in it on Android 7.1.2 if it matters, then increasing pressure, the Google Keepnwill detect increase in the capacitive tip "contact surface" and therewith is pressure sensitivity possible. But it's very tricky to use as intended. /Update.
There are wirelessly powered active stylus like the Surface Pro 1-2 and Samsung sPen, most of them I think. But these are not a passive capacitive stylus.
Update: there are also "dumb active stylus" with no pressure sensitivity. According to a review about Teclast X3 Plus, its active stylus is that kind. And it also lacks proper "hover function", that limits its palm rejection experience. /Update.
With a Chuwi tablet you will have to confirm from other owners in your subforum that this overview here is correct, and then buy it somewhere where you can dispute and return it if it doesn't work. And maybe mention here that the overview is with the updates requested still right or wrong?
It's also possible that a tablet screen has a defective active stylus support. You'll have to make a video with screen capture or your hands showing the Chuwi Hipen stylus on your tablet, so that Chuwi believes and knows what the exact symptoms are with the community to consider a possible solution.
