In terms of the interface, the Huawei MediaPad X1 uses a homescreen panel without an app drawer. So that all widgets and applications will be installed on the homescreen panel immediately. In addition to including standard default applications, applications for Bolt! service users are also added. And what’s interesting is that it includes the option to change the appearance of the interface with an emotion UI, which is called a modified user interface by Huawei with a minimalist appearance.
The monitor that it carries has a size of 7 inches and has a resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels with a density of 323 ppi. The number of monitors is large enough to provide a thin bezel for a more spacious monitor appearance. Not to forget using the IPS type and also supports LTPS (Low Temperature Poly-Silicon) technology. In addition to more efficient power consumption, this support makes the appearance of the image on the monitor sharper with rich colors and is comfortable on the eyes.
With the specifications used, this tablet smoothly drives a variety of applications on the Play Store. Moving multitasking applications is also still able to be moved smoothly. Moreover, because there is a multi-screen feature, users can present two appearances of applications that are currently running at the same time. We also managed to drive high definition video viewing in picture-in-picture mode with the main Android display without experiencing any slight lag either.
The capacity of the 5000 mAh battery is strong enough to drive various applications throughout the day. To test it, we tried to play a video with full-HD resolution that looped for 3.5 hours without stopping. The test starts when the battery is at 88% and ends at 66% which means the battery is only used by 22% during 3.5 hours of viewing video with full-HD resolution.
The rear camera has a resolution of 13 MP which is equipped with autofocus and LED flash features to produce better images.
The multi-screen feature allows users to perform multitasking with two active displays, but this feature only works on specific applications.
Dual UI Apart from the typical appearance of Android phones, Huawei MediaPad X1 also provides the Emotion UI 2.0 option with a checkered appearance that uses a minimalist design.
