Processor and RAM
Nexus 7 has a known and tried and tested processor from qualcoom , snapdragon s4pro. However Mediapad x1 is a new entrant and manufactured by huawei itself so we dont know much about it. But from the past experience we can easily say that nexus 7 wins this category.
Both mediapad X1 and nexus 7 has the same display resolution and pixel density . Hence it would be difficult to declare a winner in this category.
Huawei mediapad x1 comes with a expandable slot which is missing in nexus 7 and is a huge plus point for X1 over nexus 7.
Dimensions and Construction
Huawei mediapad X1 is clearly more lighter and slimer and thinner then nexus 7. Infact its the lightest and thinned tablet so far in the world , making it very to manage and use. Also google nexus 7 looks ugly with those thick bezels.
Mediapad X1 also beats google nexus 7 in the camera category with a huge margin.
Again Huawei Mediapad x1 wins this category with a huge 5,000 mAh battery. Which should give you a very decent time.
This is one area where huawei mediapad x1 has let us down , with expected price of 399 Euro , its almost double the price of nexus 7. Lets hope huawei makes more sense and gives real competition to nexus series with a good price.
Overall Huawei Mediapad X1 is impressive, its very slim and yet very powerful.
