Reviews for the Huawei MediaPad M2
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).

Model: 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.
