I recently bought Huawei Honor T1″ (Silver (White Panel), 8 GB, Wi-Fi, 3G, Voice Calling)  tablet, model “S8-701u”
This tablet is only exclusive available on www.flipkart.com in India; which I got for Rs. 9999/- and a freebie ‘Plantronics ML2 Bluetooth Headset’ along with it.
Firstly, Flipkart’s service is outstanding; as usual very satisfied with the entire process of order placement to delivery payment.

Here is a detailed review of the tablet.


This is a budget tablet supporting WiFi connectivity and SIM card for data(3G supported) and voice calling.
It has “1.2 GHz A7 Qualcomm MSM8212 Quad Core” processor with 1 GB of RAM and “Mali-450 MP4” for graphics.
It has internal 8GB storage capacity and support for adding another micro-SD supporting upto 32GB.
It has primary camera of 5 MP and a secondary VGA camera for video calls. The camera quality is not good; but is suitable for making decent video calls ( which is the only reason I needed a camera ). Also no flash light. Though on the heavier side with 360gm, it is comfortable enough to hold with the support of metal cased back.
It has an Accelerometer, Ambient Light Sensor and Proximity Sensor.

The other attractive features of this tablet which made me choose this from other tablets of this range are :

8 inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels ( 16:10). Crisp and clear display ( no complains ).

Long lasting battery ( a whopping 4800 mAh Lithium – Polymer ). Lasts long; really long … ting tong.

It comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Huawei has promised an update to 4.4 KitKat.

Internal Storage of 8GB gives me around 4.5 GB for apps. If required can be expanded with an external microSD card.

Accessories (nothing much surprising, didn’t expect a earphone at this price, but Flipkart’s freebie bluetooth headset made up for it )

Pleasant surprise when I put the device of charging 🙂 .There is a multi-color LED in the top front of the tablet; between the speaker and front camera.
It was initially glowing yellowish and slowly switched to green while the charging was close to completion.

On the flip side, no screen guard or cover yet available.

Overall the experience so far is very satisfying.
