Huawei MediaPad X2 is a wonderful Android portable tablet launched many years ago, having a great 64-bits Octa-Core processor (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core ticking at 2000 megahertz and an additional Quad-Core speeding at 1500 MHz), a 7" capacitive screen, and two cameras, a 13 MP back camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera.

Huawei decided to power this tablet using a high speed 64-bit Octa-Core processing unit (composed by a Quad-Core ticking at 2 GHz and a Quad-Core at 1500 megahertz), bundled in a HiSilicon Kirin 930 chip and a large 2 GB RAM memory. The Huawei MediaPad X2 counts with a 16 GB interesting internal storage memory and a slot for SD memory cards, which allows the user to store a couple hundred applications without running out of space.

Huawei made this tabletavailable only in gray color. The Huawei MediaPad X2 is just 0.28" thick, making it one of the thinnest devices in the market. Though this tablet is only 7.22" long, it manages to pack a 7" display. Huawei didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 8.78 ounces tablet.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. It also captures videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD). This tablet device also counts with a couple of nice characteristics like flash, face detection shooting, auto-focus and geo tagging.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 includes a beautiful 1920 x 1200 7" display, which makes everything look beautiful and brightful. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 450 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 offers Wi-Fi capability (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses two SIM cards so it is able to use two different carriers or phone lines.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 also includes a couple cool characteristics such as Bluetooth (enables communication with other tablets and accessories) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet packs a great 5000 mAh Li-Polymer replaceable battery providing this tablet an incredible battery duration.

Huawei sells this tablet for 399 dollars, which is a very high price for comparing with similar tablets. No matter if you want it to take lots of pictures, want a device for work, want a gaming tablet or will use this tablet mostly for social networks, you will definitely love this device.
