if you manga lover or comic lover and mostly using your tablet for reading. wait no time and buy this tablet.
this is the best 7 inch tablet for manga reader.
the aspect ratio is rare among android tablet. most tablet using 16:9 which is displaying the manga page with 2 big black area at the top and buttom, and if you switch to ipad or newer tablet they are using 4:3 aspect ratio which is display the page with 2 big black area at left and right side and if u choose to resize the page as width the buttom and top page will be cut of and you need to scrool it to read.
while mediapad x1 using 16:10 aspect ratio which is closer to the aspect ratio of a manga page, you got one full page with very little black area at buttom and top and since u can hide the navigation bar at the buttom the manga page show a little bigger.
the screen is very bright and u can tweak the color temperature so the manga page color can be choosen to be a bit red or blue or suit your needs.
the size is the smallest 7 inch tablet in the world and the lightest, i can hold it one hand when reading or u can make it easier to hold with some apps that make the side screen not responsive to the touch so you can place your thumb at the side.
the battery life is amazing and it charge very quick. 5 - 6 hours streaming HD utube nonstop or playing ppsspp nonstop till my arm hurts lol and still have juice to run, if u use it only for manga reader it will be easily run for full day.
i have tested many phone and tablet for manga reader like WM samsung omnia, s1, s2, s3, s4, g2, p780, optimus vu, moto G, itouch, note 2, note 3, 7 inch ainol novo, galaxy tab 7, galaxy note 10.1, ipad mini, ipad 2, ipad air, and mediapad x1 for sure is the best for displaying manga.
it is easily to read black on white manga or color manga and it displayed it with correct aspect ratio, showing one full page with 300ppi u will rarely tap to zoom. priceless.
the cons are, limited internal storage, weak CPU for heavy task, some lag on keyboard, mono speaker and its not loud but with headset its good because it has DTS chip, side volume button and power button is too soft easily accidentally press if u planning to use it as manga reader u need to root it and install button mapping to disable the power button.
other than that this is a legendary manga machine, u love manga and comic u should try mediapad x1

I'm having trouble with disconnected calls frequently. Anybody else experienced this? Any solution? It's really annoying. Signal is strong and yet in the middle of call, it gets disconnected. Sometimes when there's whatsapp notification comes in during call, it gets disconnected as well.

Sadly Huawei left this model from upgrading to Lolipop. .. Have a great day..
