Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite Review

Camera:

The MediaPad features a 3.2-megapixel fixed-focus rear camera. The quality of the images is passable, but not great. The images lack detail. When it comes to color accuracy, though, images are mostly true-to-life, getting only slightly too agressive with punchy vivid colors occasionally.

Video is recorded at a maximum resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, at 24 frames per second. There is one nasty issue with it - it can’t get its white balance right at all. You’d find it skipping between yellowish and more natural tones every couple of seconds. That practically renders the captured footage unusable.

Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite Sample Video:




On the front side of the tablet, there is a VGA camera. It is a low-res affair, with no bigger aspirations than to fit those times when you are on a video call.


Multimedia:

While it’s not a top camera performer, the MediaPad Lite has a 7-inch IPS screen and that’s a big asset for playing back video, and multimedia in general. The 1.2GHz single-core processor had no problem churning through 720p video.

Audio playback happens via a single loudspeaker situated on the back of the tablet, right near the camera. Sound through it comes out loud and clear, the only slight issue is that it gets muffled when you place the tablet on a table or somewhere because it’s in the back.

Wait the processor is single core? That's honestly sad for a tablet priced at 260$.

PA shouldn't waste time reviewing crap that we all know is going to be crap.

How about a review on the Hisense 7 Pro? It's essentially a 1st gen Nexus 7 (same processor, same res screen) but with the addition of a rear facing camera and a micro SD slot. $130 at Wal-mart. Surely this deserves more attention than a low-res, low-spec'd hunk of junk?
