Huawei S7 Preview


Samsung's Galaxy Tab isn't the only 7-inch Android slate taking on Steve Jobs' iPad preferences; Huawei still falls short of being a household name, but the company has nonetheless managed to get its Ideos S7 tablet on Best Buy shelves alongside the...

In the end, the comparatively low resolution and short battery life leave us feeling that the S7 fails to sufficiently differentiate itself from big-screen Android smartphones like the Desire HD or EVO 4G. They squeeze the same number of pixels into...

Review: Huawei S7 Lite MediaPad (also known as the PLDT TelPad)


I don't know how PLDT makes money giving these things away, but I got a free PLDT-branded Huawei S7 Lite MediaPad last weekend, part of the deal when you upgrade your myDSL bandwidth.

The S7 Lite is a passable and adequate tablet, but a bit slow. I guess it’s best used sparingly as a tablet outside the house, and is better suited (if overqualified) for its phone function at home or in the office. All in all, a laudable effort by...

PLDT Telpad (Huawei S7 Slim) | Review


I've always wondered if it's worth it to have an Android tablet even though I already have an Android phone. I've actually gone through three Android phones already: a T-Mobile G1, a Netphone 701 and now an HTC Desire. I'm saving up for a Galaxy Nexus....

Very long battery life ; Large internal storage ; You can bring the Telpad tablet with you if you want to

A tad heavy for my taste ; They removed the SIM slot, so no 3G goodness when you take the tablet out on the road

Would it be helpful once it’s docked? I have mixed feelings about that. At least I don’t have to scrounge around for a pen and piece of paper when I’m on the phone. But I would have loved it if they took the time to integrate stuff even more. Like...

Huawei Ideos S7 Slim Review


A year after the S7 tablet, Huawei has launched a renovated and quite slimmer version called Ideos S7 Slim. This is a 7-inch tablet equipped with Android OS 2.2 (Froyo) and a custom user interface upgrade, as well as a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

The S7 Slim comes with an abundant set of applications, a solid hardware base, an average display and exceptional Internet connection options. However, while making the decision on its purchase, apart from the appealing price, one has to consider that...

Huawei IDEOS S7 Slim


Huawei only recently entered the handheld devices market with the S7 Slim standing as one of the firm's first products

Should the IDEOS S7 Slim launch at around the $300 mark, it would make a great first tablet device for anyone.

Huawei MediaPad : Huawei S7-312U MediaPad


Towards the end of last year I attended the launch of a new product and then had to wait patiently for over six months before the promised review unit arrived.

While some companies (no names, no pack drill but they know and you know who they are) concentrate on a larger size with their tablet products, others, such as Huawei, have gone for a more pocket sized offering.

Huawei Ideos S7 Slim review


Huawei have been making devices for years however their name hasn't quite hit the big time yet. If you own a 3G dongle then there is a good chance it was made by Huawei. We've seen a few of their phones over the years and I have even...

Pocketable ; Great UI ; highly connectable

Heavy ; 2.2 Froyo ; Odd screen

Huawei IDEOS S7 Slim


Chinese manufacturer Huawei tries to capture the 7-inch tablet market with the decently priced IDEOS S7 Slim.

Pricing ranges between R3299 and R3799, which is considerably cheaper than the 7” HTC Flyer at R6360. It still feels a bit high, seeing that the iPad 2 16 GB Wi-Fi goes for R4399 (that is if you can actually find one), and we would have liked to have...

Huawei - S7 Android Tablet


2011 looks set to be the year of the tablets, with Android the operating system of choice for many manufacturers. Chinese maker Huawei has got into the game a little early with this mid-priced 7-inch mode, ...

The Huawei S7 may be a case of too little, too early. With Android 3.0-toting tablets - and plenty of them - just around the corner, Huawei could have jumped the gun with its S7.
