This is an Android Tablet from HONOR. On initial setup it offers to transfer Apps from your phone so that the transition allows most of your Apps to work seamlessly and without having to do an additional download.

The Honor Pad X9 has a viewable screen area of 26x16cm - 11.5inch display - and its overall weight is light enough to carry around.

The left side has ventilation outputs, the base has speaker outputs 2cm in from each edge, the right side has ventilation outputs as well as a single USB 'C' output in between, the top has volume rocker and on/off button towards the left. Finally the back has an AI camera towards the top right and two downward facing speakers. The overall size is 26.5x16.5x.7cm and its total weight is 495 grams.

It is equally at home being used portrait as it is landscape. I found all Apps that worked on my phone also worked correctly on this Tablet. There are also some extra Apps available should you allow it to open you an HONOR account.

It uses Android 13 and Magic OS 7.1 sits on it. It has a Snapdragon 685 4G Mobile Platform Processor. It has 4GB RAM +3GB Turbo RAM it has 128GB storage with all but 12GB free on first start up. The screen resolution is 2000x1200.

The minimum length of startup pin is 6 characters.

This is marketed as both an entertainment and educational item.

With a total of six speakers it offers a 360 degree sound experience.

Magic OS offers the opportunity to have split screen viewing across more than a single device.

For those with Children it supports Google Kids Space which will keep them safe online when setup.

I found it quick to respond and it did everything I requested efficiently and without any noticeable delay. If I have a slight query it would be the lack of a full size USB port as the only external connection is USB 'C' which doubles as the charging method.

At the time of publication the Honor Pad X9 is available from Amazon for £149.
