Review Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue Tablet

 

A niche tablet. In a more and more saturated market, tablets with telephone capability always count as niche products. The Chinese manufacturer Huawei wants to change that. With the MediaPad 7 Vogue, it throws into the mix a 7-inch candidate that not...

Battery Life; Case workmanship; Telephone capability; Low price; Good multimedia playing

Weak display; Stutters in everyday Android use; Crashes during gameplay; Speakers are too quiet; No LTE; No Bluetooth 4.0; No MHL/HDMI

On a mobile data network, the 7-inch tablet transmits faster than Huawei's in-house high-end smartphone, the Ascend P6.

Review Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Tablet

 

Full HD debut. Quad-core, Full HD screen, aluminum casing, docki

Full HD screen; Quad-core processor; Metal casing; Battery life; Build quality; Good temperature design

Screen's mediocre brightness; Insufficient gaming performance; Too little internal memory; Moderate camera quality; No 3G module available

The biggest contenders of the MediaPad 10 are the two Full HD tablets Iconia Tab A700 from Acer and Eee Pad Infinity Transformer from Asus. Also the all-rounder Galaxy Note 10.1 from Samsung.

Far Cry 3 Benchmarked

 

Off to the jungle. Ubisoft ends the 2012 gaming year with a big bang. Although it's built with open-world architecture, Far Cry 3 wants to be an intense ego-shooter with a gripping story. But notebook users have more to fear than all kinds of...

For those who don't feel like messing with the advanced graphics options in the "video quality" menu, it's possible to just use the five presets. Worthy of praise: except for the DirectX mode, all settings are directly adopted into the game (though not...

Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue review: Budget extravagance

 

A bit odd actually that no one thought of it so far. We mean, the ultras come by the dozens, and so do the pluses, ones, plays and, obviously, droids. The question is though, do we need to be wary of anything called Vogue and coming from China.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; dual-band 3G with HSPA ; 7" IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen, 600 x 1024 ; Android OS v4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Emotion UI 1.5 ; SIM card slot with data and telephony support ; Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9, 16-core GPU; Huawei K3V2...

Lowest resolution to have on a tablet ; Reflective screen with poor sunlight legibility ; Screen lacks any sort of additional scratch protection ; No microHDMI port

Will a simple game plan and good looks help the Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue keep its cool in a market that's changed dramatically in the course of a year or so? The original MediaPad may have had a chance against the first Nexus 7. Slim, but a chance...

Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Review

 

If it were ever time for another Android tablet with a thin frame and a 10.1-inch display, it's now, and it's Huawei who's bringing this device into the world. Huawei makes a valiant effort at creating a tablet with the MediaPad 10 FHD, and it does...

If on the other hand you want to take a fresh look at the Android tablet and don’t mind that your device looks strikingly similar to an original Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Huawei is here to back you up. The speaker system is strong, the display is fairly...

Huawei MediaPad 10 review: test-driving the company's first 10-inch tablet

 

Huawei MediaPad 10 eyes-on Huawei MediaPad 10 hands-on (video) Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD hitting stores starting in September Toward the end of Huawei's Mobile World Congress press event this past February, company executives made a brief mention of an...

Attractive design ; Strong audio output ; Dearth of pre-loaded apps

Weak battery life ; Heavy OS skin ; Uneven performance

Huawei's MediaPad 10 arrives too late with specs that have since been overtaken by rivals. Coupled with limited regional availability and prohibitive pricing, this is an ICS slate that's best overlooked.

Huawei MediaPad review: On the rise

 

Huawei have been flexing their mobile manufacturing muscle lately and one of their latest creations, the 7" MediaPad Android tablet, is getting its high-res screen and aluminum unibody ready to take on the big boys.

10.5mm slim aluminum unibody ; 7.0" 256K-color IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen of WXGA resolution (1280 x 800 pixels) ; Weighs 390 g ; Qualcomm MSM8260 chipset: Dual-core 1.2GHz Scorpion processor; 1GB of RAM; Adreno 220 GPU ; Android 3.2 Honeycomb,...

Poor camera ; Non-replaceable battery ; No scratch-resistant screen surface ; No LED flash

Good looking and portable, the Huawei MediaPad offers the kind of all-round experience that even some of the big players on the field would find hard to match. With some aggressive pricing, the MediaPad will be an easily justifiable purchase.

Attractive and well-made ; Easy-to-read IPS display ; Reliable HSPA+ connection ; Fast performance ; Good battery life for a tablet this size

Slightly pricey in the US without a two-year agreement

It's fast and long-lasting with a handsome design, but you'll get the best value if you buy it off contract.

Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue Review

 

The Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue stands out with a feature rarely found on tablets nowadays. It is capable of making phone calls thanks to its cellular radio and built-in earpiece. This means it could potentially serve as a smartphone replacement, although...

Can make phone calls ; Good build quality ; Plays back 1080p video in many formats

Low-quality screen ; Frequent performance issues ; UI needs more work

Unless you absolutely must have a tablet that can make phone calls, we'd advise you to pass on the Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue. Sure, it seems like a decent Android slate at first glance, but the more we use it, the more we get turned off by it. What...

Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite Review

 

Fighting an uphill battle against Android tablets, Huawei is bringing an aluminum back body and an IPS display in its MediaPad 7 Lite...

3G connectivity ; Can make phone calls

Performance stutters ; A bit bulky

Let’s be honest, the Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite is one of a few tablets that lost much of its appeal after Google launched the Nexus 7. This is a review, not a comparison, but in this case the difference is so obvious, we can’t simply turn a blind eye to...
