Huawei MediaPad X2 is a very powerful Android portable tablet released in April 2015, featuring a quite big 7" multi touch capacitive screen, a 64 bits Octa-Core CPU (actually, it has a Quad-Core ticking at 2000 MHz and an extra Quad-Core at 1500 megahertz), and 2 cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 megapixels front facing camera.

This device feels a bit heavy comparing with today standards, with a weight of 8.78 ounces. The Huawei MediaPad X2 is extremely slim and practical, being just 0.28 inches thick. This tablet is only 7.22" long, but it still manages to hold a 7 inches screen. This tablet is only available in gold color.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 has a spectacular 7" display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution, which makes everything look completely perfect. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a nice 450 candela/m2 brightness and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Huawei ships this tablet with a HiSilicon Kirin 930 system chip, holding an extremely powerful 64 bit Octa-Core CPU (actually, it has a Quad-Core running at 2000 MHz and an extra Quad-Core running at 1500 megahertz) and a large 3 GB of RAM memory. An amazing aspect of this tablet is the 32 GB inmense internal memory and an SD card slot, enough to store lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without having to worry about how much storage is left.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 5 mega-pixels front-facing camera. It is capable of capturing videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD). The camera also counts with a couple of nice characteristics: auto-focus, flash, geo tagging and face detection shooting.

This tablet offers Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) really quick connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a bit slower 4G technology) and fast 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The Huawei MediaPad X2 supports dual sim to be able to to use two different phone numbers or carriers at the same time.

This tablet also includes a handful of interesting characteristics as Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices and accessories) and GPS, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet has a large 5000 mAh Li-Polymer removable battery providing the Huawei MediaPad X2 an incredibly long battery duration.

This device is being sold for 165 dollars, which is quite close to other similar devices. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a device to play tons of games, are looking for a tablet for work, want this portable tablet to take plenty of photographs or are looking for a social portable tablet, you will definitely love this tablet device.
