Huawei's new MediaPad 7 Youth2 is a Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite competitor
The affordable tablet market is getting crowded with each day that passes by. The latest tablet that’s going to try and win the hearts of users on a budget comes from Huawei, and it’s called MediaPad 7 Youth2.

Like the MediaPad 7 Youth launched last year, the new model has a metallic frame, and a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6, further featuring HSPA+ (21 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, A-GPS, a 3MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 4,100 mAh Li-Po battery helped by “Huawei’s patented power-saving tech and the Dynamic Power Management system.”

Huawei says the processor inside the MediaPad Youth2 is a quad-core 1.2GHz MSM8x12 A7 - which likely means it’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (either the 8212, or the 8612 model).

With these features, the Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 will give Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab3 Lite a run for its money. We could even say that the Youth2 looks a bit better on paper, specs-wise. The Galaxy Tab3 Lite should cost around $130, and we’re guessing that Huawei won’t ask more for its new tablet. The Chinese company hasn’t announced when and where it intends to launch the MediaPad 7 Youth2, but we’ll likely hear more on this soon.

There are so many choices offered to us consumers. I wonder if it is a good or bad thing?

Of course it's a good thing.

I'd say it's a good thing. While a vast array of choices can be harmful (especially if most of those choices are decent at best), I feel a consumer's confidence and satisfaction with their device makes all the difference. I still have a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and while there are plenty of superior 7" tablets on the market, I still make the best with what I have; not everyone has it in their budget to replace a tablet every year or so. Make a choice, and do what you can to get some good mileage out of it. Even if there was a better choice you could have made, there's no need to let it frustrate you.

What about after sales support, Upgrades and turn around times for repairs and replacement parts ? These are the typical questions people ask about chinese products. Even IF (Remember IF) they are way better that Samsung, Apple or LG people don't buy them in a hurry. Samsung has a typical turn around time of around 1 week for major repairs here. Will Huawei be able to better that ??? Please done say that it wont need repairs cos every manufacturer has faulty units in a batch.

Huawei has dealer support in most Asian countries , but its not that good for people in the west , as Huawei is usuallly frowned upon for being a Chinese OEM
