If you won't be needing the screen size, then you might prefer the smaller tablets. Like the following customer that can't even justify getting along with the weight of the Hi12 which is lighter than Hi13:
I'm sticking with the Hi10 Pro or Hi10 Plus now (can't decide which I like better - I like the size, shape and quality of the Hi10 Plus screen better but like the keyboard of the Hi10 Pro better. :-)
Even though the Hi10 Plus is only 10.8", it seems so much bigger becuase of the aspect ratio.. Both the Pro and the Plus have a better screen than the Hi12 (my Hi12 has a LOT of light bleed and it's so freaking heavy). I'll be selling the Hi12 for sure - especially because of how bad the keyboard dock is
Who know, I might just end up keeping both the Pro and the Plus (I got the Pro at a fantastic price).

For those like me, you might rest the tablet on one side-edge on the upper side of your legs, or while laying back, then resting that edge on your abdomen. And use one hand for holding and deciding the angle and the other hand to support and help type and navigate and or make notes with the stylus.
I also find myself folding one leg against the back side of the front seat in the bus, or while just sitting anywhere flat and leaning on some sufficiently comfortable back-support. Then resting my (refurbished) Surface Pro 1, resting it against my folded leg at an ideal angle.
Even though SP1 is about 200grams lighter than the Hi13, but SP1 being slightly heavier than the Hi12. And SP1 has clearly a smaller screen and narrow aspect ratio than Hi12, but SP1 is also clearly an older model. Hi12 having the exact Samsung screen that was previously exclusive to the SP3 (ref. TechTablets guy).
I guess that the Surface Book screen is no longer exclusive, otherwise Chuwi would not be able to use it in the Hi13. TechTableys guy clarifies (I'm paraphrasing) that a fully laminated screen adds noticably to cost and that Chinese manufacturers can't easily justify it as an added-value compared to more clear other features. Except for higher-end models on the market.
Personally I want the big surface, and am willing to tolerate the device-weight until further relevant improvements in the further future. I don't think on the short-term an improved Hi13 could bring down the weight that much. So depending on your needs, you might need to go for a smaller screen for now.
When there is an adequate table, I use a portable tablet stand with adjustable and lockable angles. Especially handy for portrait-mode /vertically/"full pages" on the table, which integrated kick-stands can NOT offer any other angle other than 90° in portrait-mode.
And keep in mind we're talking about a tablet/2in1.
