Huawei MediaPad M3 Review

Score: 71.5 / 100

Huawei MediaPad M3 is a very complete tablet launched back in 2016, packing a big 8.4 inches screen, an extremely fast Octa-Core processing unit running at 2.3 gigahertz, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front side camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's only the introduction of this in-depth review.

Huawei decided to sell this tablet with a great Octa-Core processing unit ticking at 2300 MHz, included in a HiSilicon Kirin 950 chip with a large 4 GB of RAM memory. This device counts with a 64 GB big internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, more than enough to store hundreds of applications without even thinking about filling the tablet device.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 is extremely thin and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.29 inches. Although this tablet only has 8.48 inches long, it's still able to fit a a 8.4 inches display. Talking about its construction, this tablet is mainly made with Metal . Huawei only offers this device in color 16 777 216. This tablet feels much lighter than what one would think about a device of this size.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 features two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and an 8 megapixels front camera.

Huawei designed the Huawei MediaPad M3 with a high-tech 8.4 inches screen, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , providing this tablet device with a great graphic quality.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 features a 5100 mAh big capacity Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this tablet running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it at all. An issue to take into consideration is that the Huawei MediaPad M3's battery is not replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, even though with its 5100 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that happens.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 offers Wi-Fi capability (although it can't provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed data connection and fast 3G data connection, over HSPA technologies. The Huawei MediaPad M3 works with a Nano SIM card to use GSM services.

This tablet also comes with a couple of useful features as Fingerprint ID, Bluetooth (Yes ) and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

No matter whether you you love taking photos, will use this tablet to play games, are looking for a device majorly for internet broswing and social networks or will use it for work, you will probably be very happy with this portable tablet.
