Lacks dual band 802.11ac 2.4ghz/m5ghz WiFi. It is very strange that a device with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC utilizes so little of the SOC's connectivity capabilities. Why launch a 2016 tablet with limited wireless and mobility networking when the SoC is capable of so much more. Tablets are typically used for streaming yet Huawei has throttled the SoC. JMHO but there are better choices out there. Perhaps they'll reconfigure the modem with a future update but, unfortunately, most OEMs tend not to open up the modem with an update. The cameras are "ok" more or less but then I tend to use my flagship smartphone for mobile photography and not my tablets.
I'm thinking of buying this to replace my 2013 nexus 7. have anyone played any games like
nova 3 or modern combat 5 or any graphic intensive games? do u think this is comparable or better than nexus 2013.
i think there are a few things better than nexus 7
better cameras with led
sd card slot
i think dpi about the same
2GB and 16GB is the same
this one can take dual sim 4G or sd card
maybe not a stereo speaker like nexus
not latest android ver.
anyway, please let me know your experience from using it. i'm gonna buy it this weekend. i already sold my nexus 7 2013
the back camera (13MP) is not as good as they have announced and the quality is bad compared to others also with 13MP ... apart from that everythings nice ...
I actually cannot stand this table because the software is slow, it lags and falls behind.
The tablet is pretty, the design beautiful and the buttons well placed, but emui spoils the experience.
The screen is nice, the fingerprint sensor works well and the camera is awesome, but again, the laggy OS ruins the whole experience.
I ha the 2GB version, so I'm not sure if less ram is the problem - there is a 3GB version available - but I'm disappointed.
ProJames, 10 Oct 2016Following your logic, you could buy a 2017 phone with Jelly Bean? It has no issue... Hahahahahahahaha you dont understand, im talking about the currently installed OS. If the OS is 6.0, no need to upgrade in 7.0 if you have no issue, some update make the device lag or something. If you can find a jelly bean OS in a 2017 model, well congratulation!

There is no need for Android 7.0 on this phone. There is absolutely no significant advantage in Android 6.0 or 7.0 over Android 5.1 . Each device has an operating system that works the best with the phones hardware. For example: galaxy Not...

But when a new device launches, it SHOULD, especially if you aim at mid-high range (S600+ are mid-high range) at least be in the OS just before the latest (M)

There is absolutely no significant advantage in Android 6.0 or 7.0 over Android 5.1 .
Each device has an operating system that works the best with the phones hardware.
For example: galaxy Note 4 doesn't get alone at all with android 5.1 or 6.0. One issue after another after updating note 4 to higher versions of android. On the other hand galaxy note 5 didn't encounter any issue after being upgraded to Android 6.0. But it's better not to risk and not to upgrade , because mobile phone's hardware has still a long way to go before it matches to PC or Mac.
What!!!! A device like this (high-end) with ONLY Lollipop 5.1! When Nougat is already available!!! Nonsense!
