Huawei MediaPad M1 8.0 Tablet Review


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fast Kirin 910 CPU, a decent display and great battery runtimes - but while its stamina may be great, both its slightly outdated version of Android and some outdoor usability issues are disappointing....

Great battery life, Decent display, Dual-band Wi-Fi, Fast SoC, Expandable storage, Low SAR values, The battery runtimes of the MediaPad M1 8.0 are very good, beating those of many higher-priced devices
