Huawei MediaPad X2 is an interesting device released a couple years ago, in 2015, with a 7" touch-screen, an extremely fast 64 bit Octa-Core processor (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core clocking at 2000 megahertz and an extra Quad-Core speeding at 1500 megahertz), a 13 MP back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front side camera.

Huawei decided to build this device with a HiSilicon Kirin 930 system chip, packing a high speed 64-bits Octa-Core processor (although they are really a Quad-Core speeding at 2000 megahertz and an additional Quad-Core speeding at 1.5 gigahertz) and a huge 2 GB RAM memory. The Huawei MediaPad X2 has a 16 GB quite big internal storage and an external memory slot, which allows the user to install hundreds of apps and games without any problem.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 is available only in color gray. The Huawei MediaPad X2 is very thin, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. The Huawei MediaPad X2 only has 7.22" long, but it's able to fit a a 7" display. This tablet isn't very light for a device this size, weighting 8.78 oz.

Huawei equipped this tablet with an amazing 7-inches screen, and a 1920 x 1200 resolution, making everything look absolutely great. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 450 cd/m2 and can detect multi touch gestures.

This tablet counts with wifi connection (and it can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) , the fastest internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity, a bit slower 4G network or fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This device supports dual SIM so it's able to use two different phone lines.

The Huawei MediaPad X2 has two cameras, a 13 megapixels back side camera and a 5 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This tablet also captures 1920x1080 Full HD videos. Additionally, this tablet's camera also includes some nice characteristics like flash, face detection shooting, auto-focus and geo tagging.

This tablet uses a 5000 mAh big Li-Polymer removable battery, enough to provide the Huawei MediaPad X2 with an incredibly long battery duration.

This tablet also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth tablets, computers and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device costs about 399 dollars, which is quite the same as other same level devices. This tablet is a great choice no matter if you will use it as a work device, are looking for a social tablet or want it to play lots of games.
