Compact 7-inch tablet Huawei Mediapad X1 7.0 with a good “hardware under the hood”, a thin metal body and voice calls. At first glance, nothing new, but “Digging” a little deeper, you realize that the first impression is not entirely true.
Design Huawei Mediapad X1 7.0
Compact dimensions on the background of a 7-inch screen is already impressive, even during a cursory acquaintance. Huawei Mediapad X1 7.0 can hardly be called a tablet – in the best case fablet or even a smartphone (especially when you consider that the latter is already available and with so rather big screen as well).
The device looks without exaggeration noble. Yes, the manufacturer is not particularly experimenting with design Huawei Mediapad X1 7.0 – he looks like a tablet MediaPad M1 8.0, which came out before we review here . However, compactness and thickness of the case “Seven”, a beautiful border around display “under the metal”, fully clothed in a protective glass front panel … Yes, it seems that all this stuff, but that’s on them and build a new style and, respectively, and the perception of device user.
Hand this “tube” is probably the most comfortable against the competition – at least among those with whom I worked, I personally (and those, believe me, a lot). The user can unlock the device with your finger holding his hand. In addition, it seems convenient volume control, and a shift in some sub menus and applications. In short, in terms of ergonomics manufacturer the highest score.
Assembling Huawei Mediapad X1 7.0
The materials used – is another plus to the total potential of the machine. Along with the plastic manufacturer mobilized glass Gorilla glass and a considerable amount of metal. “Kills” is all very well – no backlash, albeit minor, the user will see.

Between the screen and covers it with a glass no air gap, which in turn positively affects the quality of color reproduction – picture remains “juicy”, even when viewed at an angle.
At work “in the sun” for a “extinction” of the displayed data is the place to be, but to say that it creates significant discomfort for the user, I can not – even so the information remains quite good viewing.
Backlight adjustment is performed by two classical ways – manually or automatically.
In addition to the settings there is the familiar scale of color temperature, “smart lights” activation mode “Bright colors” and so forth.
