Huawei MediaPad X2 review


A tablet that thinks it's a phone

All metal, slender body ; Decent specs ; Dual 4G SIMs

Too big for a phone ; Look silly on calls

Big, brash and claiming to be a phablet, the Huawei MediaPad X2 is a little confused over what it actually is.

Huawei MediaPad X2 Review


Big phones are big business, there's just no denying the kind of momentum swing we've seen in the phablet segment over the last few years. The trends seemingly show that consumers want bigger and bigger phones, evident by the popularity of phablets...

Premium construction & design ; Rich camera shooting experience ; Long lasting battery life ; Affordable cost through Amazon ; Dual-SIM device ; You’ll get a lot of looks for its size

Running older build of the Emotion UI & Android ; Slow camera capture speed under low light on automatic ; Obnoxiously large in size for a smartphone ; Underpowered internal speaker

There’s something alien at first using a tablet with a 7-inch screen out in public, day in and day out. After some time, there’s just no running away from the fact that it’s a conversation starter everywhere we use it. Everyone just can’t wrap their...
