Reviews

User Reviews 1 User Reviews First, I noticed how thin the tablet is at just 8.8mm. It has a solid, high quality build that doesn't feel cheap. The 1080p display looks great. Performance from the quad-core processor is smooth. Battery life is impressive even with the powerful internals.
The software is mostly standard Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Huawei made some changes like custom toggles and switching out the app drawer. The camera interface has extra modes and effects. Browsing and gameplay performance are excellent thanks to the display and processor.

User Reviews 2 Out of the box, the software includes Google apps, a gallery, media players, office apps, and high definition games. The speakers sound surprisingly nice when turned up loud. The 8MP rear camera captures 1080p video that shows off the tablet's display quality.
Games showcase the device's quad-core processor but some pixelation is visible likely because games are not yet optimized for the high resolution screen. Still, performance seems smooth with no lag. The customized Android interface lacks an app drawer with all apps accessible from the home screens instead.
- Chris Burns from SlashGear
User Reviews 3 It has a 10-inch screen with a quad-core processor, and comes in multiple storage and connectivity options. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. A signature feature is the Dolby Surround stereo speakers which sound good. The 8MP rear camera can capture 1080p full HD video living up to the tablet's name.
