Reviews for the Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8

88% Huawei MediaPad M5 (10.8-inches, LTE) Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Chinese luxury. Huawei used to be content with being low-end. However, now it is entering the high-end sector. The MediaPad M5 10.8 is the current top-end tablet from Huawei. Here, the manufacturer shows off its confidence when it comes to the asking price: Even the new iPad is cheaper under certain circumstances. So the question we have here is two-fold: Is Huawei asking too much for the new slate or is its new high-end tablet really that good?
93% 10.8″ Huawei MediaPad M5 review: It’s like using an iPad but with Android
Source: Techaeris English
The Huawei MediaPad M5 is really a top-notch piece of hardware. Holding an iPad alongside the M5, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell much of a difference in build quality and looks. The biggest factor for many will be the usability and look of Android apps on this device. You may or may not be bothered by the user experience when it comes to Android. I’d recommend finding a store that sells the M5 and take a look for yourself. Overall, this is a solid device when it comes to hardware. You will have to decide if the software experience fits into your workflow and if your favorite apps are optimized enough for you.

79% Huawei MediaPad M5 Review: An Android tablet that needs more love from its maker
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
Some might say that Huawei created the MediaPad M5 for the sake of creating a tablet as it comes with the previous generation Kirin 960 processor and marketing it as a media tablet but limiting how we consume media by removing the headphone jack. However, it is one of the better Android tablets out there and for the price of RM1,499, it is definitely a good option if you are looking for an Android tablet, as long as you can live with the compromises.

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.

Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8 review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
We’ll update this hands-on review with a proper verdict once we’ve had time to fully benchmark the tablets and also test the new Desktop View mode. Until then, initial impressions are mixed. The standard version could be a good mid-range tablet, but the Pro may struggle against its Windows-based rivals.

Huawei's Mediapad M5 could have been the product to face down the $329 iPad, but the larger model costs at least $70 more.

The new MediaPad M5 high-end Android tablets deliver good performance for the expected price (to date, rumored at around $400). The slim and elegant form factor is a little thicker than the Samsung Tab S3 but for the 10.8-inch form factor is larger.

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.
