Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 Tablet Review

Samsung and Apple have been at the forefront of consumer choice when it comes to understanding user requirements for modern and feature-rich tablets, but they were always a touch expensive to acquire. This is where Huawei begs to differ by bringing their latest offering to the masses. The Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 Tablet is the newest addition to the tablet market and promises to provide a lot of features for conventional tablet buyers.

The Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 is a 10-inch tablet that is finished in sandblasted metal finish using an aluminum casing. The entire unit weighs in at 1.1 lbs and is easily one of the most attractive and premium looking tablets in the market. While it is designed and marketed as an affordable Android tablet, the MediaPad M2 10.0 does not come off as a budget tablet in any way and is one of the major selling points for Huawei.

The tablet comes primarily in two different specifications, the Standard edition, and the Premium edition. The Standard edition tablet with the basic specification costs $349 while the Premium Edition costs $419 for the basic spec.

Both the standard as well as the premium versions come with a 10.1-inch display having a maximum resolution of 1200 X 1920 pixels at 224 PPI pixel density. This does not offer the same texture and richness of color as the iPad but does not feel lacking in the entertainment factor either. Powered by an octa-core processor in a dual configuration (Quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex A53 + quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53), the standard tablet is equipped with a 2 GB Ram, while the premium version comes with a 3 GB RAM. The storage also varies for both versions, with the standard version offering a 16 GB of internal storage while users can enjoy 64 GB of internal storage in the premium version.

As far as the camera is concerned, the tablet is equipped with a 13 MP primary camera with LED flash and f/2.0 aperture ratio, while the secondary front facing camera offers a 5 megapixels ratio.

The Premium version of the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 also features a stylus, known as the M-pen, which is a great accessory that will complement the design and performance of the tablet. However, there is no slot for holding the M-pen, and there is a chance that you will misplace it in the long run.

Perhaps the most important feature of the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 Tablet is the availability of four Harman/Kardon speakers that are located at the top and bottom of the tablet for a revolutionary audio experience. These speakers are supplemented by the SWS 2.0 Surround Sound and Clari-fi Audio Restoration amplifier that will work together to enhance the audio quality.

The company promises an immersive audio experience while playing all types of media, and is oriented at people who use their tablet primarily for gaming or for watching movies and videos. Therefore, if you are looking for an affordable android tablet for entertainment purposes, the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0 tablet is the answer.
