wow, I can even connect my seagate 2T slimdirve HD to this phone. Just need to plug in the microusb to usb adapter into the usb plug. Other phones even with OTG cannot do this. This is because X2 can also function as a powerbank so it gives the HD power to connect.
My problem is this phone doesn't have LTE 2 or 4 for USA and the HSPP+ no longer kicks in because of t-mobile's upgrading in the field.
Come on Huawei! Where is the X3? This phone/tablet is the best form factor bar none after fruitless searching all phone models.

Now that there are rumours of a new 7 inches phablet by Xiaomi, the Xiaomi mi max 3, it would be a good moment for the launch of the Huawei mediapad x3. Don't you think, guys?

marwa, 09 Jan 2017does this phone use 4G ???yes, but you must check that in setings

On another note, this X2 phone also has OTG function which means that you can take your USB stick, or SD card reader and connect via micro USB and it will read it like a drive.
I now take photos and video with a micro 4/3 lens camera, place the micro SD into a USB drive storage with a micro usb adapter and my X2 phone can read, copy like another drive.
Don't know why it is hard to find this cheap little usb/micro usb adapter because it's so useful. I have a Cruz 256GB usb drive stick from Costco for only $40 and with the little adapter can plug into the X2 which can read, copy, paste the Cruz 256GB stick.
bill934, 22 Apr 2017I have a question for Berri. I have the mediapad X2 and having trouble installing the SD card.... moreI read in some specs that the micro sd can be as high as 128GB which is what I have installed in my X2 alongside with the SIM card. So maybe it cannot read a 256GB card.

Is it possible to use both slots for sd cards? I dont need the sim card for the device to be a phone, I need the storage space. Thanks for any suggestions.

Certainly the best 7 inch phone or tablet in the world, although it is already two and a half years old. When is a successor coming, Huawei?
i have bought this media pad since 2 years and during this time my little children have rapped with their fingers and brought it down and .... but this media pad is very strong and has good material ..i think it is best media pad that i had in my life
Berri, 20 Jun 2017First try micro sd card only to see if it is properly reading. Then you can try both microSD ... moreAbout my ghost touch problem. Got it solved. Due to rain and moisture build up while staying in my pocket, there was ghost touching problems at the upper part just below ear speaker. I was really bummed because even 2 years later, there is no X3 nor anything else better. The MediaPad T2 7.0 Pro comes close but it's a tad bigger and plastic and a snapdragon 615 which I'm not so sure. So I stopped by the corner phone shop repair and begged the guy to just open up the phone and clean the connectors. He did and charged me 10 dollars and wow, it's fixed.
I have been using this for the last 6 months and X2 I must say is the best device I have used so far. Am waiting for X3. However, the only thing I am disappointed about is that, I am unable to see the 360 degree videos on youtube. I haven't had a response to my mail seeking to know on the Gyroscope. Were any of you able to see 360^0 videos please? If so could you tell what settings need to be tweaked to do so? Thanks in advance for your help.
bill934, 22 Apr 2017I have a question for Berri. I have the mediapad X2 and having trouble installing the SD card.... moreFirst try micro sd card only to see if it is properly reading. Then you can try both microSD and nano sim card together. I've sanded down the nano sim card just a little with very fine (>500) sand paper with only about 10 rubs. Nano sim card first seats into tray, then microSD on top. When sliding tray into phone, make sure sim card doesn't slide out of alignment, particularly sliding towards outside edge as you are "jamming" the tray into phone. Need to power off/on instead of simple restart for phone to recognize both sim cards and microSD.
I've already done this with 32GB sdcard, then switched to 64GB sdcard, then switched up to 128GB sdcard. After a few harsh phone drops, the micro SD card would sometimes jar out of alignment and need to be reset
Still super happy with my phone, but recently after exposure to rain water, my upper middle touch screen just below ear speaker would start ghost touching. Really upset because I still don't see any new phone that can replace my trusty, so functional 7inch phone. For two years, no new generation model to the X2.
Very good phone to read epub and surf the net, a too small to really read pdf for long. The battery is awsome. Much more than 2 full days if you read and surf all the time. The size is a false issue, you get used very fast to this handset. Also, it is quite robust : mine fell in the stairs and the screen had nothing. Once you get used to a 7" there is no turn back. Any phone for me is 7" or is not considered.
