Gadget Reviewed: Huawei MediaPad M3
Recently we find ourselves more and more dependent on our smartphones to do daily tasks, like browsing the internet or working on the mobile version of Microsoft office. That said we don’t really find need for a tablet to do tasks that our smartphones are more than capable of handling. But Huawei thought differently when they released the Huawei Mediapad M3 Tablet. The company still found the market receptive enough to tablet devices. So what does the MediapadM3 have to offer that would make us shift our tastes from a smartphone to a tablet?
Design of the Huawei Mediapad M3:
The Huawei Mediapad M3 is an 8 inch mobile tablet, so it’s not that big that you may find it difficult to hold and it’s not that small that you would find the screen a problem.
The Huawei Mediapad M3 is simplistic in design with an aluminum finish. The tablet is curved at it’s back allowing for an easy one-handed grip.
The Huawei Mediapad M3 Tablet also comes with an 8 megapixel camera at its front and rear which is not really great when it comes to taking pictures. The sensor on the tablet acts as a finger scanner and a multi- purpose home key.
Huawei MediapadM3 has speakers located on the top and bottom of the tablet which is great for an immersive landscape video watching. Other things that are included with the Huawei Mediapad M3 tablet are a microSD card slot, microUSB input and a pinhole mic apart from the standard earphone input slot. What is missing in the Huawei MediapadM3 tablet is the USB type-C slot.
Huawei also includes a screen protector with the MediapadM3 tablet.
Performance of the Huawei Mediapad M3 tablet:
The display of the Huawei Mediapad M3 comes in a 2560 by 1600 resolution which provides sharp and a good enough display. The tablet also comes with a brightness setting that can be adjusted depending on the lighting that you are using the tablet in. What’s not so great with the MediapadM3 is the fact that it is rally reflective, so viewing the screen outdoors during the day is really bad.
Coming to the speakers, Huawei boasts of a Harman-Kardoncollab. The speaker’s output is great and with a loud and clear sound quality. The tablet almost rivals the sound quality in laptops which is something which you don’t see everyday.
The Huawei Mediapad M3 tablet has a 950 octa- core processor and a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. Working with this processor and opening up multiple apps are good enough on the tablet. While the tablet is still a notch below other flagship tablets out there, it still provides a good working experience.
The Huawei finger scanner is one of the best that is out there when it comes to security. The Huawei Mediapad M3 tablet has a 5100mAh battery which is good for a full day’s usage. The battery is not all that fast when it comes to charging though.
