Huawei MediaPad X1

 

When does a phone become a tablet? Is it all about the size or is there more to it? With the MediaPad X1, Huawei has blurred the line more than ever. Huawei swears blind that this 7-inch Android device is a tablet, but it also has a SIM card slot that...

Its skinny metal body looks and feels luxurious, it has a bright and bold display, decent battery life and its camera can snap some good pictures too. Pop in a 4G LTE SIM card and you can use the tablet exactly as you would use a phone.

It's running on an outdated version of Android and Huawei's Emotion interface makes the tablet often rather sluggish and irritating to navigate.

Although the MediaPad X1's software is unquestionably clunky, it still has a lot going for it. If you're struggling to decide between buying a new phone or a new tablet, the X1's 4G LTE capabilities make it a fair compromise.

It's sleek and slender design make the X1 feel premium and that's good when you consider it has a price tag to match. Huawei tells us the MediaPad X1 will launch at around €399 in the next couple of months.

The MediaPad X1 is a really nicely designed 7in tablet from Huawei. However, we wish it was simple a tablet with a Nexus 7 rivalling price tag. Not a confusing 'phablet' with its phone functions.

Hands-on at MWC 2014: Is it a 7-inch phone, or a 7-inch tablet?

The Huawei MediaPad X1 is a bit of an oddball. It's a 7-inch phone, and it only makes sense if you consider it as such given that rival 7-inch tablets are available for less than half the price. It seems like Samsung may already have some of the...
