Huawei MediaPad M3 review: An unfussy Android media tablet

 

The tablet market has stumbled. From everyone offering a tablet - in Windows, Android, iOS - things have dwindled. Even Apple's iPad has slowed in pace.

Great design and build quality, minimal fuss, good audio performance, good bundled AKG headphones, fingerprint scanner is smart

Display viewing angles a little limited, doesn't add a huge amount to the mix where some rivals do

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...

Huawei MediaPad M3 8.0 review

 

An okay slate with a crucial flaw

Sharp screen ; Super-loud stereo speakers ; Slim, light and fancy aluminium shell

Poor gaming performance with some titles ; Pedestrian rear camera

Once again Huawei has produced a tablet that promises much but fails to fully deliver. The MediaPad M3 looks good, has great speakers and performs well in everyday use, but keen gamers will want to give it a wide berth.

Huawei MediaPad M3 review

 

Huawei throws stainless steel and stereo sound at its best compact tablet yet

Small, stylish and well-built ; Powerful enough for all sorts of streaming and multimedia ; Battery life is pretty decent

Not a tablet for gamers ; EMUI isn’t for everyone ; Camera quality is pretty basic

Superior sound and refined styling makes this as close as you can get to an iPad Mini that’s running Android, even if overall performance falls a bit short.

Huawei MediaPad M3

 

Tablets are a luxury. With phones getting bigger and laptops getting thinner, that in-between device Steve Jobs said would be the future of the computer could be seen as becoming slightly redundant.

Huawei MediaPad 3 review: A genuine iPad mini challenger, with a price to match

 

Huawei's new 8.4in tablet has all the elements of a great tablet, but much will depend on its RRP

Huawei MediaPad M3 Review

 

It's been a while since we've seen a premium 8-inch Android tablet take on the iPad mini. Most small slates these days orbit around the $150 to $250 price range and offer a modest set of options. Enter the 8.4-inch Huawei MediaPad M3, a sleek,...

Huawei Mediapad M3

 

Huawei's Mediapad M3 looks like a good Android tablet for digital media consumption.

Slim and light design. Sharp, clear screen. LTE enabled.

Functionality for U.S. model is still a bit up in the air.

Comparisons and Conclusions 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...

Huawei MediaPad M3 Review

 

Although tablets may not have had that big of a year in 2016 when compared to years past, plenty of really solid options were still released. Apple introduced a 9.7-inch model of the iPad Pro, Amazon refreshed the Fire HD 8, and Asus kicked out some...

Thin and lightweight ; Sturdy and refined design ; Gorgeous 2K display ; microSD card support up to 128GB ; Solid audio setup for both external speakers and wired headphones

Processor feels poorly optimized for a lot of tasks ; EMUI 4.1 is one of the worst Android skins out there ; Throwaway cameras ; microUSB rather than USB Type-C

With all of that said, what’s the final word on the Huawei MediaPad M3?
