Huawei Mediapad M5


Huawei's Mediapad M5 could be the Android tablet to face down the $329 iPad—if the price is right.

Sharp, bright screen. Powerful audio. Fast LTE.

Pricier than the iPad, which is the product by which all other non-Windows tablets are measured.

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

Huawei MediaPad M5 (10.8-inches, LTE) Tablet Review


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...

10.8" Huawei MediaPad M5 review: It's like using an iPad but with Android


Android tablets just continue to hang on despite Apple's dominance in the space and the Huawei MediaPad M5 is like an iPad but with Android.

Best build quality I've seen in an Android tablet ; Nice display ; Snappy performer ; Amazing speakers, really crisp and clean even with some bass support

Android is still not great on tablets but has improved ; Cameras aren't stellar but this is a tablet

The Huawei MediaPad M5 is really a 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...

Terrific Tablet


This was bought for me as a gift but I chose it. My old tablet (7inch) tablet was getting very slow and clunky and I wanted to replace it with a larger, better spec tablet. Despite all the recent news coverage about Huawei, both me and my husband have...
