80% Review Huawei MediaPad 7 Vogue Tablet | Notebookcheck
A niche tablet. In a more and more saturated market, tablets with telephone capability always count as niche products. The Chinese manufacturer Huawei wants to change that. With the MediaPad 7 Vogue, it throws into the mix a 7-inch candidate that not only surfs and plays films, but also serves as a fully capable phone replacement.

Nexus rival. The Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 is designed to vie with the Google Nexus 7, and with its in-house processor and high-resolution LTPS display, it seems to be an interesting competitor in the 7-inch segment. The LTE tablet leaves a good impression in many respects; however, it shows some flaws in terms of software.
Huawei MediaPad X1
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Huawei MediaPad X1 is a bit of an oddball. It's a 7-inch phone, and it only makes sense if you consider it as such given that rival 7-inch tablets are available for less than half the price. It seems like Samsung may already have some of the MediaPad X1's potential sewn up with the Note series of phones, but it is a promising device regardless.

75% Huawei MediaPad X2 Review
Source: Phone Arena English
It’s not a total wash, thankfully, as the MediaPad X2 can be picked up through various channels on Amazon for the starting price of $413 – down from the $700 price point it’s normally attached with. Thinking more about that $413 price, it surely offers some value by being high spec’d, long lasting with its battery, and producing some slick shots with its camera. Oh yeah, it’s also a dual-SIM device with expandable storage and a premium design that makes the $413 cost a steal.

Huawei MediaPad M2

The Huawei MediaPad M2 is an 8” tablet with a weight of 0.33 kg, which carries the promise of a reasonable media consumption device. Inspired by classical music, this tablet brings about the theme through providing the best-in-class audio with its dual speakers, large chambers, SWS 2.0 (Super Wide Sound) and Clari-Fi music restoration technology by Harman Kardon. This technology comes with a PA power amplifier, which allows the creation of clear audio even when amplified. This gives an enhanced experience for users especially when watching movies or listening to music at high volumes. The theme of classical music can also be seen in the model's sleek all-metal design, with lines running through the edges and sides of the tablet imitating the look of a music sheet. Besides, this model also sports a 1920 x 1200 Full HD IPS display which is tested to be 67 % sharper than average tablets. Coupled with its Color Plus, Sun View and Eye Care features, the MediaPad M2 is sure to be a vivid visual delight for users regardless of location and brightness level. This model is powered with Huawei's own Kirin 930 octa core processor clocked at 2 GHz, which is above average and translates to better multi-tasking capabilities and lower power consumption. It is also packaged with Android 5.1 Lollipop, 16 GB internal storage, and a 4800 mAh battery that can last up to 30 hours. The storage capacity can be expanded by up to 128 with a microSD card. With such competences, it is no wonder that the MediaPad M2 is a part of Huawei's flagship series.

Metal head. Unlike its precursor, Huawei's MediaPad M2 8.0 is now covered in a metal casing. Once again, the tablet scores with a potent HiSilicon Kirin Octa-core processor, decent HD IPS touchscreen, and great battery life. The latest Android 5.1 operating system and fast Wi-Fi round off the couch surfer - a good deal for around 280 Euros (~$306).

There’s been a bit of drought of new tablets recently so it’s great to see something interesting from Huawei. The MediaPad M2 10.0 has some decent specs for the price, although we’d suggest getting the model with more memory and storage.

Source: Techradar English
The Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 tablet is a 10-inch Android slate that doesn't cost nearly as much as an iPad, but which does a reasonable impersonation of Apple's popular tablet. The design looks like it holds up. The specs are certainly different to those of the Android tablets we usually test out, with a non-Qualcomm CPU, so it'll require further testing to see if everything holds up on the inside too.

Tablets need to do a lot to set them apart from the crowd, and Huawei seems to have achieved this with the MediaPad M2. It won’t be for everyone, but the super-impressive speakers and combination of the stylus and pressure-sensitive display are great features. It also doesn’t come in too hard on the wallet. The top-end model comes with the stylus, LTE, 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage will cost $469, while $349 gets you 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage.

Hands-on of Mate 8, Mediapad M2 10.0, and more
Source: GSM Arena English
At its CES 2016 press conference, Huawei went on to showcase three devices - a phone, a tablet, and a smartwatch. The Mate 8 phone sees its international launch, the Mediapad M2 10 is a new device entirely, while the Huawei Watch Elegant and Jewel are two new editions of the Huawei Watch this time with the ladies in mind specifically. Huawei spoke at length how much its brand awareness has gone up around the world and that it has become the #3 smartphone maker worldwide. With ambitions to jump over Apple and take #2, of course. Flagships like the Huawei Mate 8 and the Nexus 6P will help raise awareness and push sales even further.
