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...

Again, it's worth mentioning that this is a pre-production S7, and Huawei could well refine the experience before the final units ship. We're hoping there are some last minute power management tweaks being made, since the S7's lacklustre runtimes are...

Huawei IDEOS S7


Huawei IDEOS S7 is sort of an entry-level 7-inch WVGA (800x480 pixels) Android tablet with 3G connectivity. Specs wise, it comes with a 2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, 768MHz processor and a memory card slot.

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port

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.

The first and foremost thing that will really enchant you towards it is its thin and light chassis. Icing on the cake, it is ideal for surfing the Web and multitasking

On its downside, the Huawei Ideos S7 does not comes with a built-in memory, which is not expected from a tablet

Looking on to the overall performance of the Huawei Ideos S7, it can be concluded that Huawei Ideos S7 is a mediocre performer and if you are thinking to invest this much amount, then you can consider the other brands as its alternatives.

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

Huawei S7 Review


Whilst we have seen a fair amount of Android tablets appearing lately, some we have to say, have proven more effective than others. With the Toshiba Folio 100 selling poorly, the budget giants Huawei have released their own tablet into the market to...

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...
