Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue Review: Budget Extravagance: Controls And Display

By 07:26 Fri, 13 Aug 2021 Comments


Display

The Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue has a 7" IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display with a resolution of only 1024 x 600 pixels, which is the lowest that makes sense on a tablet - WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) seven-inchers are stretching it really. Pixel density is mediocre at 170ppi but something you can live with - of course there are devices that will gladly double that, like the recent Nexus 7 at 1920 x 1200.

The display has inadequate viewing angles, with quick loss of contrast and colors getting washed out.

The brightness control in the notification area is a four-step virtual key: Automatic, 100%, 50% and 0% brightness. There's no brightness slider as in competing Android devices. There's an additional Smart Backlight toggle in the Display Settings - this could be On or Off and we're not sure how it affects the image quality.

Brightness is reasonable all in all, but doesn't seem to assist sunlight legibility, which suffers greatly form the highly reflective classy screen coating. The Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue can be really frustrating at times to utilize outdoors.
