MediaPad 7 Lite: High on looks
Running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version, this device is targeted at the youth and young urban professionals looking for a decent entertainment and communications companion. It carries an affordable price tag of Rs 13,700.
At the outset, let me caution that the MediaPad 7 Lite ships with only Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. A lot of newer devices are already running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Moving forward, the tablet’s 7-inch full view angle IPS LCD display gives users a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and 170 pixels per inch. This makes for a decent reading experience as far as my experience was concerned. The colour reproduction is decent for what it is—basically what you would expect from IPS. And being a 7-incher, this tablet is highly portable and can even fit in small bags and jacket pockets.
The MediaPad 7 Lite comes in an aluminium unibody shell. With dimensions of 193 mm x 120 mm x 11 mm, it isn’t very thin either, but the device’s build quality impressed me a lot. From front to back and everything in between, this device is well built and reeks of quality. It feels strong when one holds it although a little heavy at 370g. You will find the Huawei and Google logos on the rear and the 3.2 megapixel rear facing
