Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro review: A decent Android tablet, but it's no iPad
Source: Zdnet.com English
Huawei makes great hardware and tries to bring a good Android tablet to the enterprise. If you must use an Android tablet for work then the MediaPad M5 Pro is a decent option. However, if you are just looking for the best tablet overall, then look at an Apple iPad.

The Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro is a tablet that promises a lot, but doesn't quite deliver on its "pro" name in every department.

The MediaPad M5 Pro looks fantastic and performs fairly well, but it's let down by small details like the shoddy official keyboard and Android's limited productivity options. Still, it's cheaper than most of its comparable rivals, and will keep most users happy.

87% Huawei MediaPad M5 and M5 Pro review
Source: Android Authority English
Pricing for the MediaPad M5 starts at 349 Euros and ranges upwards to 599 Euros depending on size, storage, connectivity, and whether you opt for the Pro or standard versions. As we mentioned previously, when it comes to Android tablets, the amount of options out there are very limited, but the MediaPad M5 line is a very solid offering from Huawei. These are some of the best Android tablets we’ve seen in a while. They’re well designed with gorgeous displays and fantastically loud speakers that make them great for multimedia purposes. They certainly live up to the MediaPad name, and if you’re into turning your tablet into an on-the-go work station, the M5 Pro offers the appropriate peripherals for both work and play.

Huawei Mate 10 vs. Mate 10 Pro: Which Mate should you get?
Source: Hardware Zone English
Having said that, it’s rather unfortunate that Huawei is making consumers choose one feature over another. Instead of coming up with multiple variants, Huawei should’ve concentrated their efforts to craft the perfect smartphone – one that would overthrow the competition in one fell swoop, and one that embodies all the great features of both the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro.

90% Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro Review: A premium Android rival to Apple’s iPad Pro
Source: Recombu English
If you’re after an iPad Pro-style device which runs Android instead, the MediaPad M5 Pro ticks most of those boxes and adds a few advantages of its own. You get the same neat keyboard cover and stylus pen setup, with the added bonus that the pen is actually bundled in the box. That sharp display is perfect for media, while performance and battery life are also top notch.

There’s even more value if you’re already rocking a Huawei smartphone. They work well together. Regardless of the phone you own, chances are you’ll easily fall in love (and stay that way) if you choose to buy this slate. Whether you actually need it or not is another question.

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro initial review: Stylus in tow, is this Android's answer to the iPad Pro?
Source: Pocket Lint English
In the same breath the M5 Pro isn't especially enthralling; there's no distinctive unique selling point... unless, of course, the to-be-announced price kicks the competition to the kerb. We'll know more about that come Huawei's press conference at Mobile World Congress 2018.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
