Description

The MediaPad X1 sports LTE Cat4 connectivity, and you can also use the tablet as a phone. The IPS-LCD display sports the hearty 1200 x 1920 pixels of resolution, as all high-end 7-inchers do, but the screen occupies the whopping 80% of the tablet's front, making it the slate with the best screen-to-body ratio. Computing power is provided by a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, and the whole setup is backed by a huge 5000 mAh battery, which reportedly delivers 21 days on standby, and "up to 5 days of continuous use". That's not all, as Huawei also equipped the MediaPad X1 with a 13 MP camera on the back that sports a Sony-made Exmor R sensor, as well as a 5 MP front-facing shooter.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
