I got this device a week back and the device is pretty good. I have owned or tried out several tabs including the IPad/Ipad2/Galaxy Tab 7"/Acer A500/Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Overall the device is nippy, the touch screen interface good, the high resolution for a 7" makes it clear, the video playback SUPERB, sound is loud and clear.
I posted a longer analysis of the equipment on my non-commercial blog, check it out if you are prospective buyer. I too eagerly wait gsmarena's review of this device, which is considered the best mid level 7" tab next to the upcoming 7.7 Galaxy Tab (expensive one!).
hands on experience in depth at _http://rayazmuthalif.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/huawei-mediapad-review-7-tablet-s7-301u/
The screen is 16 million colours and is IPS. It is a little bit clunky with web browsing. Suspect is it the browser that's the problem though and not the hardware.
The processor itself is very fast. Very nice screen and watching HD content is a breeze. The smaller size is good to. I sold the Iconia A500 for this and find it much easier to use for reading especially
this tablet is really slow , writing experience is not good . more like android mobile .
Not recomended .
This tablet has no phone or messaging capability in its stock setup...but there is a somehow add-on that will make this tablet enable its phone and messaging features..
Kath, 28 Oct 2011I'm going to get this one as soon as it arrives in the Netherlands ;) It's the best in the 7&... moreI am also waiting for this new Huawei to be available in France,like you I have an S7-105 acting as a phone and a tablet and I love using it although it runs on Android 2.1 it can play Flash items through Skyfire and MPEG2 on MX Player.My concern is whether it will be Flash 10.3 (the only one still available on the Android market)compatible.I also hope they have made an effort on the ROM capacity which limits the number and size of apps that can be installed on the S7
ncs, 14 Nov 2011hi, how about its cpu? processor?? regards.1.2 Ghz dual core qualcomm
Delighted to see Hauwei on the move.
This 7 inch offering fits the 'pocketables' category admirably and I hope the price will be right by December when my contract must be renewed.
Nice & sleek compare to Galaxy Tab 7.
The first Honeycomb in 7 inches tablet series.
Nice IPS 1283X800 screen.
Dual core CPU is definitely welcome.
Only down side is the battery life is abit short. Unit get hot easily especially on 3G & sometimes the MicroSD failed to be read.
I'm going to get this one as soon as it arrives in the Netherlands ;)
It's the best in the 7" class money can get!
Using the Ideos S7-105 at the moment and still very pleased with it.
