Huawei Mediapad S7-301U Review Performance, First Powerful with Honeycomb 3.2

Tablet Review

The Huawei Mediapad S7-301U Review Performance. At first glance, this product does seem like another 7-inch tablet computer. But this is the first tablet computer running Android OS version 3.2 Honeycomb. This tablet computer adopts a metal unibody design with a weight that is not too heavy. The design makes this product feels solid and steady. On the rear body, you can unscrew the bottom plastic to access the SIM card slot and a micro-SD. While on the front, there is a 7-inch screen. This screen does not seem to be protected by a scratch-resistant coating, as are trends in several tablet computers/smartphones lately.

Around this tablet computer, you’ll find a variety of connectors such as micro-SD, the adapter hole, and micro-HDMI on the lower side. In the bottom corner of this tablet computer, there is a small hole which is the microphone hole. Well, Mediapad S7-301U can be used to call even if you only rely on speakers or headphones.

Speaker and headphone jack for those located at the top of the tablet computer. While power and volume buttons are placed on the right side computer tablet. In terms of software, Mediapad provides some interesting applications ranging from e-book reader Aldiko, Yozo Office to work, until cool game Asphalt 6. Thus any kind of user needs can be met. Of course, you can still add your own choices apps from Market/Google Play.

The most interesting is when we look into the Settings and select the settings screen. Apparently, in which there are uncommon settings that are display resolution choices. You can choose between Standard and High. It also makes us curious. Therefore, we were immediately shot. Apparently, the original display option for a tablet computer screen is set at High.

Meanwhile, if the Standard option is selected, the display icon and the text will be enlarged. It is much like if you lower the resolution on a PC monitor. But strangely, after checking with several applications, whatever the choice, keep the screen resolution 1280 x 800. We were reassured by the graphics benchmark scores did not change at all in the two resolution options.

From the benchmark side, Mediapad S7-301U produces a good score. This is because the product is equipped with SoC MSM 8260 a dual-core processor speed of 1.2 GHz and a qualified Adreno 220 graphics chip. These devices can easily play high-definition files with different formats and extensions. One thing we noticed, for .mkv file types, this tablet computer player can not play smoothly.

The solution, use an alternative player such as the MX Video Player. Huawei offers many advantages for a 7-inch tablet. A high-resolution screen and integrated micro-HDMI port became one of its appeals. Its high performance also helped Mediapad S7-301U to compete with other 7-inch tablets.

Testing results

Since we update Quadrant and Linpack, the Quadrant and Linpack test using a previous version is not displayed. Here we see that the SoC Exynos that is used by Galaxy Tab 7 Plus is far superior, but operates a little faster. However, Mediapad S7 is still able to bring its own good performance.
