vjdo626, 01 Sep 2014Does X1 support MHL connection to TV?Yes it does!
Been using the Mediapad X1 for 1,5 months now and here are the main pros and cons:
+ Display. Wonderful quality and brightness. Sunlight is no problem and the automatic brightness works very well.
+ Internet speed. 3G and especially 4G function really good and the surfing is a joy with my favourite browser Dolphin
+ Size. Perfect hybrid of a tablet and a phone. Fits into pockets and can be held on ear like any phone. For me this is the ultimate do-it-all mobile device
+ Look and feel. High quality feel and look, no cracks or other noises. Nice and slim body
+ Hardly anyone has this in Finland so draws positive attention :)
+ Camera. Not quite the level of the best today's phone cameras but still very good in good light. Lots of details and natural colors in pics
+ Speaker sound very good
+ Display surface very easy to be kept clean, just a wipe and it is like new
- Bluetooth connection breaks sometimes, especially if something else is being done with the device simultaneously
- Just a tiny lag exists, hopefully Kitkat fixes this. The lag is by no means disturbing although
- Have had to boot twice in 1, 5 months

It is not only about locking speed but also accuracy - the more satellites it can see the more accurate it is.

It will make a big difference. Plus, you normally do not need navigation on motorway, but in city urban areas, you do neet it.

Now you can buy it with stock Android without Huawei's UI, but has to be under the HP brand. The true problem for me of this device is it does not support GLONASS which will sure reduce the positioning performance.
X-Man, 28 Aug 2014Thanks a lot for your reply. Now there is nothing that can stop me from getting this beauty. ... moreYes, as saw min said, the is more than 10 gb available, after installing apps (i have music, office and game apps)

I do recommend you guys to upgrade to kitkat 4.4.2. Coz It was a little lag before it with JB 4.2.2. After the update, the phone runs so smooth and fast.
It's over 10GB left after I have installed my fav applications on phone. It's more than enough i guess ....
i want this device but speed just 1.6,is it fast enough ?and any big difference between this and 2.3 ?please tell me because I want this if it fast enough.

Now there is nothing that can stop me from getting this beauty. Another question if you don't mind. How much is the user available memory for the 16GB? My GN7 has 13.43GB. Thanks in advance.
Pate64, 28 Aug 2014Yes, usually it doesn't matter. Just some TV apps didn't slide it away and there it disturbed... moreI use Dragon VLC Lite and it slides away the navigation bar when it plays web TV shows in full screen.
I have upgraded to Kitkat 4.4.2 B010 on 3G version. Very smooth fast and love this ...... but can't install Google+. It's due to 400 dpi as xdevelopers say ... Just buy it I bet you won't get even a single regret ... :)

Just some TV apps didn't slide it away and there it disturbed a bit. I also like Dolphin browser's full screen setting and there it is nice to have the full 7 inches in use.. I had Sony Xperia Ultra and for some reason the navigation bar irritated me there :)

It doesn't bother me.
