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...

very responsive ; color-accurate, high-res display ; good cameras ; four loud speakers ; good software ; possibility to make calls ; good input devices ; fast memory ; the tablet does not get hot ; good battery life

not a lot of storage space ; throttles down under load ; no 3.5-mm jack ; case is flexible ; outdated security patches ; slow Wi-Fi and GPS ; preinstalled bloatware

At the beginning of our review, we asked ourselves whether Huawei’s tablet was really worth the price. The answer is: There are a number of highlights that make the tablet appear not so expensive. Plus, the price-to-performance ratio is also very...

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...

Huawei Mediapad M5 10.8 review

  (Rating Hidden)

There are many tablet brands that wouldn't mind a slice of the Apple pie, but few manage to crack the magic formula. Huawei is certainly taking a crack with the MediaPad 10.8, an Android tablet that, on paper, looks to be a powerful model that won't...

Great buy

 

I bought this to replace my 2017 ipad (5th gen) which had started to get slower (unsurprisingly as it contained the 3 year old a9 chip which first featured in the iPhone 6s) . I'm glad I made the purchase as the tablet is faster with a bigger & better...

"The tablet does everything it says on the web site, works well, feels good and has a battery that lasts all day. The grandchildren also like it. As a pensioner I found it easy to set up and use, no need for the younger children to help. Very pleased...
