Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 8


The 8-inch Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 8 is a classy-looking tablet with a sharp screen and good speakers, but it's a bit pricey for what you get.

Sleek design. Sharp, bright display. Loud speakers. Fingerprint sensor. Dual-band Wi-Fi.

Limited internal storage. Heavy UI layer.

At $200, the Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 8 offers a higher-quality build and sharper screen than you get with sub-$100 tablets. But I can't quite say it's worth more than twice the price of the Amazon Fire HD 8. The Fire HD 8 offers better parental...

Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 8 Tablet Review


Mini Me(diaPad). The 8-inch variant of the MediaPad M3 Lite brings a lot of polish and panache to the Android ecosystem. Despite its mid-range specifications, the M3 Lite proves to be a capable media machine. Is this the affordable compact tablet to get?

...that unfortunately lack body and bass ; very poor WiFi speeds ; exhaustive amount of bloatware ; middling performance ; poor gaming performance

The MediaPad M3 Lite 8 was designed to be a small media device for on-the-go media hounds. With its colorful and bright screen and long runtimes, it falls into this niche perfectly. The tablet is a great fit for casual users looking for a beautifully...

Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite (8-Inch) Review and Ratings


Huawei's 8-inch MediaPad M3 Lite provides a sharp, colorful display and better-than-average resolution at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, battery life lags behind the competition, though it is still enough to squeak through a standard workday.

Attractive design ; Bright, colorful display ; Light weight

Battery life disappoints ; Middling performance

The Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite delivers a premium display at a price that won’t burn your budget. Pick this tablet if you plan to do a lot of reading on your 8-inch slate, and want the sharpest, brightest display you can buy for the dollar. Others will...

Huawei Mediapad M3 8 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Better known for its mobile phones, Huawei is trying its luck in the tablet market, with one of its tablet offerings being the MediaPad M3 8. Its 8-inch size makes it a natural competitor to the iPad Mini and 8-inch Samsung Galaxy S2. We had a chance...

Technical specs wrong


I have bought this tablet because in technical specs was catalogated as a 4G tablet. Beware buyers this is a WiFi only model! Very told me they will give me a 10% discount but that didn't happened.

Great Tablet


Fast enough for my purposes - not going to be gaming on it, but for Media purposes this is speedy. Great Size, Screen sharpness etc. EMUI is not too dissimilar from stock android. Lightweight and the Aluminium feels premium. None of the problems of the...
