The MediaPad X1 is a compact Android tablet which is also seen as a challenger to the Nexus 7. The 7-incher tablet pushes a Full HD resolution display and runs on a capable Quad-Core 1.6GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. In the hands, it feels much smaller than most mini tablets with a thickness of just 7.2mm and it weighs just 239 grams. As comparison the iPad mini (with Retina Display) is thicker at 7.5mm while the Nexus 7 is still heavier at 290 grams.
It gets a 13MP Sony main camera, a front facing 5MP shooter, support for 4G LTE and a generous 5,000mAh battery. During our hands-on with the MediaPad X1 at MWC 2014, we find the device to be well built with a premium aluminium body and we liked its compact size. If that’s not enough, you can even use this as a phone as it comes with telephony and SMS capabilities.
