Couch potato. The MediaPad M1 8.0 ships with a fast Kirin 910 CPU, a decent display and great battery runtimes - but while its stamina may be great, both its slightly outdated version of Android and some outdoor usability issues are disappointing. However, for less than 200 Euros (~$263), it is still a good offer.

Mid-range. The suffix "Pro" in the name of Huawei's new tablet suggests that it has some additional features that distinguish the tablet from the conventional devices. However, this is deceptive since we find a normal mid-range device for private customers. Nevertheless, our report reveals why that is not a disadvantage.

Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4 inch

Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4 inch is an Android-based tablet that looks sleek, slim and stylish. It was announced in September 2016 and just released in October 2016. The tablet is crafted from aerospace grade aluminum and its sturdy yet light uni-body case is sculpted using a 5-axis CNC machine. In a glance, it may look like a very large smartphone because it is quite thin and narrow compared to many other tablets. It comes pre-installed with Android OS v6.0 Marshmallow with Emotion UI 4.1 skin and has an octa-core processor, a Mali-T880 MP4 graphics processing unit, 4 GB RAM and an internal storage of either 32 GB or 64 GB. The storage capacity can be expanded by up to 256 GB via the microSD slot. The tablet sports a capacitive 8.4-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with 1600 x 2560 pixels resolution. There are very few tablets with the size and resolution of the Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4 inch in the market and the screen is mainly good for reading and watching movies. Colors are vivid and black is deep. In addition, it has decent viewing angles and brightness levels. However, the screen has 16:9 ratio which makes everything look narrow and hampers the experience when browsing the internet. Moreover, it is not outdoor-friendly because the screen suffers from excessive reflections. Huawei partnered with the audio brand Harman Kardon to include speakers with decent sound quality. The dual speakers create the feeling of a surround-sound, but some have reported that they may lack some bass and some distortions can be present when playing songs. Its primary 8-MP camera on the rear features geo-tagging, autofocus, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama. However, the rear camera has slow shutter speed, lacks vibrancy and details. Photos do not look particularly good even if they are taken under good lighting conditions. Considering the fact that tablets aren't really used for their cameras, this might not be a major issue for many potential buyers. In addition, there is a secondary 8 MP camera on the front. Both cameras are able to record videos in 1080p resolution at 30 fps. Furthermore, the Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4 inch comes with features such as fingerprint reader, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, compass, ambient light sensor and Hall Effect sensor. The tablet is available in 2 different colors: gold and silver. The Huawei MediaPad M3 8.4 inch has a convenient weight of 310 g and has a non-removable Lithium-Polymer 5100 mAh battery. Overall, the tablet is decent with a hi-res display, impressive audio and a very sleek design. It'll suite users who for some reason require a smaller tablet but something bigger than a typical smartphone.

Press Review by Capuchino Saber

These days, many customers look for a tablet for entertainment with powerful features and outstanding design, yet reasonable price. Last year (2016), Huawei has released the MediaPad M3 8.3 inch. Huawei announced that they were putting more efforts to satisfy customer requirements. The Huawei MediaPad M3’s slim and light aluminum case features an aesthetic design. Furthermore, this tablet comes with excellent speakers, which could attract most users at the first time using, and a good processor of HiSilicon (the Kirin 950).

Design

Featuring an 8.4 inch display, Huawei decided to stick the MediaPad M3 with a 16:9 aspect ratio. PhoneArena comments, “While this does make the MediaPad M3 a bit taller than some of its competitors, it also makes it considerably narrower”. On the contrary, “The Huawei MediaPad M3 is a small tablet. It’s slim, it’s light and it’s handy - and the 4G version can even double as a gigantic phone, as long as you don’t mind all your calls coming out at speakerphone volume”, said TechRadar. Regarding page ComputerShopper, with its white front, diamond-cut edges and solid silver-metal back, not to mention the iOS-like-rounded-corner icons used in the company’s Emotion UI (EMUI) Android skin, it’s clear that Huawei is attempting to ape the style of Apple’s iPad. With only 310 g, the Huawei MediaPad M3, as a remark of page TechNave, is quite light despite the metal body encased in. Built quality is excellent with bezels so compact that the 8.4 inch display doesn’t seem much larger than most other 8-inch tablets. It fits comfortably in one hand and looks more like a premium flagship smartphone than a tablet. Page LaptopMag also gave their comparison between this tablet and other competitive models on the weight and thickness: the Huawei MediaPad M3 (with its weight and 0.3 inch thick) is slightly heavier than the Asus ZenPad Z8 and Apple iPad Mini 4, but slightly lighter than the LG G Pad F 8.0 and the Acer Predator 8. This tablet generally is crafted out of aluminum and glass, making for a product that feels premium and high-end. This creates for a look that’s somewhat reminiscent to that of the Nexus 6P, and it’s one that the PhoneArena’s reviewer hopes Huawei sticks to for some time.

Display and Fingerprint Sensor

Displayed in the 8.4 inch screen with the aspect ratio of 16:9, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is actually supreme for recreational purposes, such as: watching videos or playing games. Compared to the previous version, the 8-inch Huawei MediaPad M2, the MediaPad M3 has a true high-resolution screen. As commented from TechRadar, “It’s an 8-inch 2500 x 1600 pixel screen, with an IPS LCD panel. The upshot is that pixel density and sharpness are both excellent and even up close the screen looks sharp”. The reviewer of LaptopMag also gave his thought about the display while watching the Rogue One: “A Star War Story trailer on the slate, I noted the rich, inky blacks of outer space, the crisp whites of Star Destroyer and the bright oranges of Rebel pilot jumpsuits”. However, according to TechRadar, “Its contrast is not as good as that of the OLED Samsung Galaxy Tab S2’s display, but this is a good screen”. Also, an evaluation on page PhoneArena is that the colors are nice and vibrant, text is crisp, and whites are extremely stark. The only real complaint of the reviewer from this page would be that the screen doesn’t get quite as bright as he would have expected, but seeing how this is something user is going to be using indoors the majority of the time, it shouldn’t prove to be that big of an issue. “The fingerprint scanner is not a clicky button, though, just a touch-sensitive pad. Used while the MediaPad M3 is awake, it’s a back button; when the device is asleep, of course, it wakes the little guy up”, said the TechRadar. In contrast, TechNave supposed that the very quick and responsive fingerprint sensor acts as the home, back and recent app buttons. The writer of page PhoneArena remarked this feature that “Setting up the scanner upon the first use was a very speedy process, and I never experienced any issues while using the scanner to unlock the tablet while testing it out. It’s very fast and accurate, and it really is a great addition to have”.

Software and Audio

One of its biggest weaknesses is its interface. As PhoneArena reviewed, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 layered over it, and that creates for a software situation that’s a bit less than ideal. In the same opinion, “Some people end up really disliking Emotion UI in a phone, but we find it a bit less contentious in a tablet. We tend to flick between apps a bit less rapidly than when using a phone”, TechRadar complained. Moreover, “As impressed as we are with the MediaPad M3’s hardware, we’re not quite as jazzed about the software, we would not hold out much hope for a major software update to the MediaPad M3” (ComputerShopper). About the audio, the cooperation with the hi-fi audio company Harmon Kardon played an important role in improving the MediaPad M3’s sound significantly. Specifically, “It’s top and bottom speakers filled a large conference room with a great reproduction sound. The included H300 earbuds by AKG sweeten the deal, providing equally clear and strong sound”, quoted from LaptopMag. Also with the positive remark from PhoneArena, the MediaPad M3 features stereo audio thanks to dual speakers that are positioned on both the top and bottom of the tablet. The reviewer of this page could safely say that this was a very solid audio setup after some extensive listening sessions with the M3.

Performance

The HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Mali-T880MP4 GPU and 4 GB of RAM help to ensure that you can handle multi-task with ease. As a whole, performance on the MediaPad M3 is very good. Basically, regarding PhoneArena, “The M3 is exceptional when it comes to lightweight to average use”. However, when it came time to really put the M3 through its paces, the reviewer of this page was left feeling a bit confused. Besides, as an evaluation on page TechNave, the graphics benchmarks gave away the MediaPad M3’s fatal flaw with rather low scores in 3DMark signifying that the tablet could not offer smooth performance on higher resolutions, which was mainly due to 2K resolution that graphics had to handle. Also, “The MediaPad didn’t do well on the 3DMark benchmark test, taking a score of 15.375, which is lower than iPad Mini 4, the Predator 8 (20.785), ZenPad Z8 (17.846). This test proved a solid detector of its real-life performance, as I saw clipping and slight stutters when I played a round of the racing title Asphalt 8” (LaptopMag’s remark). PhoneArena supposed that this tablet had taken quite a bit longer for Mortal Combat X and Modern Combat 5 to actually open up on the MediaPad M3, and numerous in-game animations had appeared noticeably slower and more jittery than he was expecting. This page concluded: “This is still a fast tablet for most use cases, but there are certain situations here and there were the MediaPad M3 feels quite a bit slower than it should”.

Camera

According to page TechRadar, the Huawei MediaPad M3’s rear camera is rather pedestrian. It’s an 8 MP sensor with an f/2 lens: fine for a tablet but probably not as good as your phone camera, unless you have a fairly old mobile. “I was able to capture some photos that turned out looking fairly nice, but there were others I took that ended up looking like an oil-painting”, said PhoneArena. Nevertheless, following a comment on page TechNave, camera features are above average at best so while all the basic features like panorama, depth of field and the like are available it won’t beat out most camera phones. The 8 MP front and back cameras are above what you’d normally see in a tablet through and should be more than enough for Skype or a selfie or 2.

Battery Life

The TechRadar’s battery test, which involves playing a 90-minute video at maximum brightness with accounts syncing over Wi-Fi in the background, drained 19% from its battery. This suggests you should be able to enjoy between seven and a half and eight hours of video off a full charge. It also suggested around five and a half hours of gaming off a full battery. And if there’s one area of performance where the MediaPad M3 could use some improvement, it’s battery life. “Running our 720p test video with screen set to 50 percent brightness, the Huawei tablet lasted a little over nine hours” (ComputerShopper). Lastly, as commented from LaptopMag, when they tested the MediaPad M3 with the LaptopMag’s battery test (web surfing at 150 nits of brightness) on AT&T 4G LTE network, the tablet lasted 8 hours and 40 minutes.

Verdict

In conclusion, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is really a tablet with a lot of adequate qualities like fast overall speed, the crisp and bright screen, and especially the awesome speakers. However, it seems that there are several defects existing in this tablet, for example, the low performance on games. In addition, from my perspective, the high price and perhaps the awkward navigation key are also considered minus points of this device. Yet anyway, “You’ll need to think carefully about whether this is going to be an issue for you before choosing the Huawei MediaPad M3 over an iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 or cheaper Asus ZenPad Z580C” (TechRadar’s verdict).

Evolution. The successor to the MediaPad M2 of 2015 is finally here: please welcome the MediaPad M3. The new model may have almost identical measurements to the predecessor, but it is equipped with a larger, higher resolution panel, a stronger processor and a fingerprint sensor.

Huawei MediaPad M3 Quick Review: The Perfect Compromise?
Source: Unbox English
The tablet’s performance is pretty good, especially with games like Mobile Legends since the tablet didn’t show any signs of slowing down during the impromptu tournament that Huawei held at the launch with members of the media. Audio output is pretty good as well, along with the performance of that essentially 2K display. The large 5100mAh battery will probably power this tablet for quite a bit before needing to be recharged.

Every tech reviewer wants to find the perfect device and for a little while the Huawei MediaPad M3 certainly seemed like that device, except if you’re hoping to do some 2K pixel resolution gaming. In everything else, like media playback or productivity on the go it is superb, especially with the nice artificial leather case, which looks stylish and can be used as a stand. If you’re looking for a tablet for those purposes, it should fit in most handbags and pouches.

On top of everything, the MediaPad M3 is only $299. It’s insane that you can get this much performance and quality out of a device that seems like it should cost twice as much, but Huawei pulled it off. If more manufacturers can release tablets anywhere close to the MediaPad M3, 2017 will be a fantastic year for Android tablets.

Huawei MediaPad M3 is a premium device, one where the price tag seems reasonable, if you go by the eBay listing. Huawei will bring the device to India, and the pricing should be closer to this range.With the MediaPad M3, you have solid device for media consumption; it is fast, packs a stunning display and has great sound output. Frankly for most regular users tablets have become entertainment consumption devices, and the Huawei MediaPad M3 delivers very well on that front.

There's not much else out there at the top-end, with Samsung's Galaxy Tabs hoovering up most of the people that refuse to jump ship to iOS and the iPad, but this could have what it takes to carve out its own little niche. Brilliant build quality makes it perfect for carrying around everywhere. That great screen and fantastic sound help it eat up just about any video or music you can through at it, too. Gaming performance is a little iffy, and that camera isn't much to write home about though.

80% Huawei nails the design of its flagship tablet, but is it enough to tempt people away from its rivals?
Source: PC Advisor English
In a stagnated market, the Huawei MediaPad M3 initially feels a little underwhelming. After extended use though, we reckon it’s a cut above the mid-range, but then again, from €349, you are paying for it. It’s a good alternative to an iPad if you want an Android tablet that’s bigger than an iPad mini but smaller than an iPad Air 2. But, who is specifically looking for that? The MediaPad is excellent and we recommend it, but it lacks a certain ‘wow’ factor that's largely down to the high number of existing Android tablets. The MediaPad 3 is a cut above, but you should also consider Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series for a similarly excellent Android tablet experience.

Huawei hasn't announced a U.S. price or release date for the Mediapad M3, and price is going to matter a lot here. With its sharp screen and light, single-handed form factor, the M3 looks like an excellent tablet for reading comics and watching video. But this is a highly competitive market. Looking at tablets with similar high-res screens, the Asus ZenPad Z8 runs for $249 from Verizon, and the iPad mini 4 starts at $299. The M3 has a better aspect ratio than the Z8 does for reading and the iPad mini offers more apps. It's going to have to fit into that price range to be competitive. Check back soon for price and release details, as well as a full review of the final hardware.

80% A genuine iPad mini challenger, with a price to match
Source: Alphr English
However, when I first wrote this review, we had no pricing information. Now we have it, it does take a little sheen off the tablet as it's in direct competition with the iPad Mini 4 which is a tough old battle to win. We've only been sent pricing in Euros, but even with an optimistic conversion it's a premium price to match the product. For the 32GB WiFi model, it'll set you back €349. Assuming they go by the standard conversion trick of calling it £299, that's only slightly undercutting the iPad Mini 4. It only gets pricier from there. The LTE 32GB model comes in at €399, as does the 64GB WiFi version. The 64GB LTE version hits €449.

Source: Techradar English
The Huawei MediaPad M3 is a tablet with lots of admirable qualities. High screen resolution, ultra-low weight and speakers that go loud enough to become an anti-social menace in some situations earn a big thumbs-up. It's a pity, then, that the M3 is thrown off balance quite so dramatically by oddly poor gaming performance with high-end titles. The casual games everyone gets obsessed with for weeks at a time run fine, but those with console-like graphics tend to struggle to an extent that's quite rare for a tablet of this quality.

70% Huawei MediaPad M3 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
I do like the Huawei MediaPad M3, but it’s far from an essential purchase. It doesn’t do anything that a cheaper Android slate doesn’t; it just does those things with an added hit of style. The screen is decent, if overly reflective, and the metal-clad chassis is thin and light yet maintains a solid feel. The speakers, too, are superb for a small tablet.

80% The new 8in tablet king?
Source: Expert Reviews English
The 8.4in screen is the big highlight, and if you excuse the slight dip in gaming prowess, the Kirin 950’s sheer processing oomph knocks its rivals for six. Battery life also takes a bit of a hit as a result, but if you want a powerful, compact, premium-feeling Android tablet, then the MediaPad M3 is going to take some beating.

84% Huawei Mediapad M3 Review
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei MediaPad M3 offers an immersive display, great audio and long-lasting battery life and while gaming can be somewhat choppy, it is capable of playing high-end 3D games with few issues. You can also make phone calls with it and performance is a breeze but a generic design, average cameras and a questionable interface mean this won't be a tablet for everyone. If you can get past those shortcomings, it could be one of the best Android tablets currently available.

Huawei MediaPad M3 hands-on: A beautiful aluminium tablet with high quality screen
Source: International Business Times English
Our first impressions of the Huawei MediaPad M3 are mostly very good. The hardware is excellent and a match for anything else on the market (Apple included), and while performance seems good, Huawei's software is as always its weakest point.

Huawei Mediapad M3 Review: An Unfussy Android Media Tablet
Source: Gear Open English
There’s a lot to like about the Huawei MediaPad M3. It is as much as you might want from a tablet designed to entertain you, a great portal for your browsing, your movies and your gaming. It offers the performance that will satisfy many and avoids the temptation to encourage you to use it for work. It’s well built and a pleasure to use.

Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite

The Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite is a tablet equipped with a total of four speakers in order to produce a vivid and powerful soundscape. As far as Huawei tablets go, the MediaPad M3 series is top of the line. Technically, that is, since the Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10.0 is more like a stripped-down mid-range tablet. It is available in two different versions, Wi-Fi only and LTE. With its standard looks, the MediaPad M3 Lite is far from causing a design revolution. This is also true in terms of color, as the tablet comes either in a mix of black and grey (front and back) or entirely in white. Both models are encircled by a silver metal frame. With 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM, the MediaPad M3 Lite 10.0 is well equipped for today’s needs. The storage can be upgraded via a microSD card, which is inserted together with the SIM card on a combined SIM/SD-card tray. The processor of the tablet is Qualcomm’s lower mid-range 1.4 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 435 SoC. Performance is certainly adequate for everyday use. The MediaPad M3 Lite’s 16:10 1920x1200 display is slightly higher and not as wide as a 16:9 display, which makes it better suited for office work or browsing the web and less suitable for watching movies. At only 413 nits, the average brightness is somewhere between mid and low-range. The MediaPad M3 Lite’s rear-facing main and front-facing secondary camera with autofocus, both with 8MP, are impressive.

Huawei has installed its so-called “Emotion UI”, version 5.1, on top of Android 7.0. Most modifications are in the design, and, in general, they are rather subtle when compared to pure vanilla Android 7.0. A few updated logos here and there or the ability to select from various available themes, but also improved SmartCover detection, a quick access menu on the left side, and the ability to power the device on or off on a schedule. When multitasking, apps can be placed side by side, which makes sense on a display as large as this. By and large, users familiar with Android will feel right at home. The tablet’s low power consumption is another big plus. In standby, it barely needs any power, and it needs less power than most of its competitors when idle. With only 6.33W under maximum load, it was the most power efficient of the bunch in this load scenario. To further improve power consumption, an energy-saver mode can be enabled on demand, and the display resolution can be lowered as well. The MediaPad M3 Lite 10 is equipped with an 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi chip. It is also equipped with a Cat.4 LTE modem with a maximum speed of up to 150 Mbit/s receiving and 50 Mbit/s transmitting data.

The boombox among its brethren Huawei has equipped its MediaPad M3 Lite with a total of four speakers in order to produce a vivid and powerful soundscape. That said, at a first glance the device is a typical mid-range tablet with a few tricks up its sleeves.
Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 Review
Source: PC Perspective English
For the price, the Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 is a tablet worth considering with a few caveats. In combination with EMUI 5.1, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 CPU and 3GB of flash memory make for a tablet that’s responsive, even after extended periods of use. It’s front-facing camera has a higher megapixel count than many others in the sub-$300 range, which makes this a good device for Skyping with family over a long distance. The speakers and beautiful IPS LCD screen also make consuming content easy to enjoy.

For $250, the Huawei MediaPad Lite 10 is a sleek tablet with a big, crisp screen and booming speakers at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, it's just not reasonable enough to compete with the Amazon Fire HD 10, which is available for $100 less and offers the same performance. It's also uncomfortably close in price to the $329 Apple iPad, which offers a faster processor, a sharper screen, and access to Apple's App Store, which still has an advantage over Android when it comes to quality tablet apps. So unless you absolutely need access to Google Play, you're better off paying a lot less for the Fire HD 10 or a bit more for the iPad.

I've always been a fan of using tablets for consumption tasks. Historically, I've used an iPad for this, but iPads are getting really expensive, given that Apple keeps adding 'pro' features. Indeed, it seems that the era of consumption tablets is behind us, so I found the MediaPad M3 Lite to be refreshing.

Huawei T3 8-inch Media Pad — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
Huawei set out to provide an affordable, reliable, connected entry level tablet with the Huawei T3 MediaPad, and in my opinion they have delivered. At less than $200 for the device and with a 4G sim slot included Huawei have a device with a difference that could appeal to many people.

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?
Huawei MediaPad M5 and M5 Pro Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Huawei has a contender with the M5 Pro, thanks to the tablet's great battery life, nice display and good performance. The MediaPad M5, however, is sunk by its short battery life and comparatively small sound.

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?

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.

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 MediaPad M5 8.4

The tablet industry has been quite stagnant for the past couple of years. There has been very little in the way of movement, particularly with tablets based on Google's Android operating system. However, Huawei announced new MediaPad models at the Mobile World Congress 2018, namely a small 8.4-inch model and a larger 10.8-inch Pro model with a stylus. With its aluminum body, smooth back and curved corners, Huawei’s 8.4-inch MediaPad does not tread new ground for tablets. It feels well-built and is super-light at 316g. Thanks to having an 8.4-inch display and relatively little in the way of screen bezels on the left and right side, Huawei has managed to make the M5 compact enough for single-handed use, it can also easily be slipped into a pocket or bag. The front of the device is dominated by the display, but unlike many of the new phones coming to the market this year, it retained a bezel around it. This is fine on a tablet, since it gives the hands something to grip onto. A fingerprint scanner sits below the display and works superbly; a Huawei logo and front-facing camera sit above the display. The overall design is clean and basic. One of the most pleasing elements of this tablet is its screen. The aspect ratio is unusual: 16:10. With its 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, the 8.4-inch display is super crisp while offering lovely clean whites, vibrant colors and, considering it is an LCD panel, great contrast.

When users are playing movies, the Huawei ClariVu technology uses intelligent algorithms to adjust unclear frames or drops in contrast ratio to deliver a better viewing experience. Huawei used massive amounts of research data to develop a display that is safe and comfortable for the eyes. Eye Comfort Mode reduces harmful blue light to make it safer and easier to read. And the Huawei MediaPad M5's display automatically adjusts to the color temperature of the surrounding light. Inside this Huawei tablet, users will find an octa-core Kirin 960S, which is essentially a tweaked version of the chip that powered most of Huawei's flagship phones in 2017. The performance is therefore appropriate for a high-end tablet. Each game loaded without any complaining or noticeable delay. The Huawei MediaPad M5 supports Hi-Res audio, which is an industry standard for sound quality. Every facet is captured perfectly, keeping treble sweet and bass anchored for significantly truer, more immersive listening experience. Tuned by the renowned acoustic legend Harman Kardon® Audio, the tablet delivers quality sound with more bass and no distortion. Huawei Listen audio creates a perfect soundscape to produce 3D sound that is richer, more layered, and penetrating, too. Finally, concerning autonomy, it takes only 1.9 hours to fully charge the Huawei MediaPad M5. Its 5,100 mAh (TYP) battery and smart power-saving technology allow users to enjoy 1080p videos for up to 11 hours.

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.

Even faster, LTE by default and with an included digital stylus: The Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8 Pro is the "tuned" sister model of the excellent MediaPad M5 10.8. In our review, we determine whether the tablet can achieve similarly convincing results.

Huawei has a contender with the M5 Pro, thanks to the tablet's great battery life, nice display and good performance. The MediaPad M5, however, is sunk by its short battery life and comparatively small sound.

The Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro breathes much needed life into the premium Android tablet world, toting a pen in the process. It’s also a good tablet, despite imperfect software in places and a reliance on a keyboard case for it to be a true productivity tool.

But overall, we feel as though the MediaPad M5 Pro is more than the sum of its parts. It doesn’t have the most powerful processor, the most ram, storage, or the biggest battery. The software isn’t the cleanest or most feature-packed, but we loved every moment with the Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro. From getting some work done to watching way too many Casey Neistat videos on YouTube, it was a pleasure to use.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Huawei MediaPad M5 lite

The Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite is a new mid-range tablet that boasts of an aluminum unibody and a quartet of speakers. Buyers will receive a fancy-looking mid-range tablet with LTE support. The new tablet is built around a Kirin 659 processor and runs on EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. This has a different settings structure and customized apps for telephoning, messaging, the gallery etc. compared to stock Android. The device features a 10-inch 16:10 display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. The tablet comes in two configurations which are 3 GB/32 GB and 4 GB/64 GB. It is available in Champagne Gold and Space Grey color variants. The MediaPad M5 Lite features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The average brightness is 492.2 cd/m², which is higher than those of other comparable tablets in this price range. The display does not reflect surrounding objects too much and screen content can be read easily. However, reflections become very strong under direct sunlight or a blue sky. The IPS panel of the MediaPad M5 lite has very stable viewing angles. Screen content can be read without distortions or falsified colors from almost all angles. Huawei has given the MediaPad M5 lite a metal case with a small decorative seam on the back. The top and bottom edges of the tablet have a lot of holes for the four speakers, as well as additional openings for the microphone along the top. This means that there is a row of holes all along the top of the device. Huawei MediaPad M5 lite have access to an 8-MP main camera as well as an 8-MP front camera. The latter takes good-quality portraits, as long as the subject is positioned in the center of the picture due to the fixed focus. Details are displayed nicely with only objects in the background slightly lacking sharpness. The MediaPad M5 lite can transfer data via its USB Type-C port, which, however, only offers 2.0 speeds. The USB port also functions as a charging connection. Headsets or external speakers can be connected to the tablet via the 3.5 mm audio jack. There is also a microSD card slot that allows storage to be expanded by up to 256 GB. The tablet is backed by a 7500 mAh battery. Additionally, the device ships with the company’s M-Pen lite stylus, which supports 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity. Notably, the stylus will only be accessible in select markets. Furthermore, as mentioned, the company is touting the quad-speaker setup tuned by Harman/Kardon that works with the company's Histen 5.0 sound system to replicate surround sound experience. This tablet’s performance is sufficient for many everyday workloads. Modern games can also be played on this device, although users might have to content themselves with average graphics settings. It is most suitable for casual users who mainly use the tablet for entertainment purpose. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite Review
Source: G Style Magazine English
The best thing the MediaPad Lite M5 has going for it is its colorful 1080p display and its quad speakers. Both are great for media consuming while the kids mode features aren’t bad if you regulate your kids to that section of the tablet. For some slight day to day you can get by and kids using it for watching their fave YT or movies will be okay. Trying to do a good deal of multitasking it wouldn’t handle the best. Its at a fairly good price though available for $299.99 which once again includes the stylus.

This device certainly cannot compete with the top of the tablet market; your iPad Pros, Pixel Slates, Windows detachables, et al.

It’s got a good screen, even better speakers, solid battery life, and an accessible software experience.

Huawei MediaPad T5 10

The Huawei MediaPad T5 is an entry-level tablet which offers decent features such as full HD resolution, a fast octa-core processor and a metal back. In addition to that, it is running Android 8.0 Oreo. Huawei has managed to prove that it is indeed possible to create a full-featured decently designed device at a low price again. It is aimed for users who need a tablet for entertainment purpose. The design of the Huawei MediaPad T5 10 is very similar to the one of its predecessors. As with the T3 10, users are getting a metal back. However, there is a plastic bar at the top for the antennas and the frame is made of metal and plastic. Overall build quality is superb. All edges and corners are very well machined and consistent, and the display sits flush and tight inside the case. Huawei is offering this tablet in two colors called black and champagne gold. The right-hand side houses the power button and the volume rocker, both of which wiggle ever so slightly inside their respective cavities. That said both offer firm and well-defined feedback and worked flawlessly and effortlessly. On the left-hand side, users will find the 3.5-mm audio jack, the USB port, and the SIM/microSD tray. As for the display, it comes with a 10.1" display (1920 X 1200 resolution) that delivers excellent detail. The 16:10 aspect ratio makes it perfect for watching movies or TV shows and browsing websites. However, the average brightness delivered by the display panel is around 340 nits. Given the highly reflective topmost glass layer, this could be too little for comfortable outdoor use. The Huawei MediaPad T5 10 is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor, which is developed by Huawei itself. It is an octa-core chip with eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.7 to 2.36 GHz. Users also can get it with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage or 3 GB of RAM and a 32 GB internal storage. With the 32 GB version around 22 GB are free to use by the user out of the box. The rest is taken up by the system. The MediaPad T5 is fairly well suited for gaming. It’s hardware is fast enough to render demanding games smoothly. Games developed for smartphones are hard to use due to the tablet’s large screen, and the touchscreen was somewhat resistant, which meant that gaming for extended periods of time was rather exhausting and strenuous. The gravity sensor was very fast and responsive, and once user got used to the size of the device, neither casual games nor the latest 3D titles caused any issues. Inside the Huawei MediaPad T5 10 sits a battery with a capacity of 5100 mAh. It’s kind of expected at this price point. It should last a whole day during normal use. However, if a user is playing games it’ll drain the battery faster. In standby, it almost does not lose any energy at all. Overall, it is a decent tablet at its price point and it could serve most entertainment needs. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam
