Huawei MediaPad M3 Review
Among the small handful of electronic manufacturers that are still focusing on producing tablets, is the Chinese company Huawei.
The sleek and stylish MediaPad M3 is a tablet that can double up as a smartphone for all those who don’t mind lugging around an 8.4 inch device wherever they go! With a number of cool features, this is certainly a phablet worth considering.
Despite an uncanny resemblance to Apple’s iPad Mini 4, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is an alternative that is far more affordable and user-friendly. The aluminium metal unibody design has a smooth finish with a subtle curve on the back for comfortable handling. Weighing at 322 grams, the tablet is light enough to hold in one hand, however navigation requires two hands for this massive screen. The touchscreen display has a resolution of 2560 pixels by 1600 pixels, with a pixel density of 359 PPI. This offers crisp images and makes watching high-quality videos an enjoyable experience.
The MediaPad M3 is fitted with a touch-sensitive pad that doubles up as a finger-print sensor. While this is a reliable option for securing your device, the sensor can be slow at times which is a hassle.
Powered by Huawei’s Hisilicon Kirin 950 processor and a RAM of 4GB, the MediaPad M3 is able to handle multiple tasks with ease! Switching between applications like internet browsing and the heavy-duty game Asphalt 8 is smooth and without any lag. The only clear drawback is that this device tends to heat-up after running several heavy applications for more than 10 minutes.
In terms of camera specifications, the MediaPad M3 unfortunately does not impress. With a front and back camera lens of 8MP, one can expect clear images. However if you are looking for a device that can assist you in capturing some truly stunning shots, this is not a tablet to opt for. One of the interesting features of the camera is that it offers a number of modes including Beauty, All-focus, Time-Lapse, Pro Photo and Good Food.
With its 8.4 inch display and high-tech dual-stereo speakers made by Harman Kardon, the MediaPad M3 is the perfect portable gadget for watching movies. Placed on the bottom of the device, the sound delivered is loud without any jarring.
The storage capacity is of 32GB, which is sufficient for storing apps, music, videos, games and other data. Packed with a battery that has a capacity of 5,100mAh, this tablet can easily last up to two and a half days. The MediaPad M3 is being offered with Android v6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed, along with the Huawei EMUI 4.1 integrated over it. Huawei’s new tab is expected to be priced at approximately Rs. 25,000. While this is admittedly steep for the specifications offered, the display and the processor make it worthy of consideration.
