At 320, the device felt like a phablet. At 400, the device feels like a overly large phone.

Yes, it's what I suppose,

anyway, I've installed the X1 as a carputer, and I am running Chrome, Poweramp, MusicXMatch, Sygic, Google Apps, etc, etc, etc.without problems.
The included keyboards also have normal size.

It's very strange, because AnTuTu says my tablet is 400 dpi, but all seems normal.

Well, I suppose i'm lucky

Can you share pics and details of your carputer installation? I am thinking of ways to do the same...

Yes.
You can find some images in this Thread
You can see the tablet is well integrated with car. I used Huawei Mediapad X1 because I had some size limitations, and this one is the smallest 7" tablet I've found.

I used CarHome Ultra as frontend, and some apps for multimedia (Poweramp, MusicXmatch, Google Play Music), GPS car navigation (Sygic, Google Navigation), OBD2 (DashCommand), etc, etc, etc.
I connected tablet headset output to my car audio AUX input.

The tablet puts automatically on/off when I start engine. I used "Actions" app to automatize WakeUp/Sleep depending on charging state. Tasker app is more powerful, but It was impossible to install.

It's very important to charge the tablet with a 5V-4A regulator like this one in DX. It's important to charge battery quickly!
Also, I used an app -don't remember the name- to put tablet in lowest consumption to minimize battery drain when is sleeping.


Well, if you do the same, show us the project, ...and luck!

Default Back to 4.2.2

No kidding, that 400 dpi in 4.4.2 is WAY to large. Thought I could live with it, but can't. It's perfect in 4.2.2, so back I went!
