Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD Pro Reviews

Engadget‘s review Edit

When it was teased earlier this year, Huawei's MediaPad 10 was shaping up to be a screamer. But in the slow crawl to market, its cutting-edge specs became commonplace for the Android tablet space. Sure, the combination of a quad-core proprietary CPU, full HD 1,920 x 1,200 IPS display, Android 4.0, a 6,600mAh battery and up to 32GB of storage means this has the makings of a stellar slate. Still, it's the pricing and limited regional availability that really kill it. With an exorbitant price tag that's over $100 more than its 32GB competition, the 8GB (!!!) WiFi-only model's pretty much excluded from any savvy consumer's tech shopping list. Factor in the processor's uneven real-world performance and there's just no reason we'd ever recommend this device over cheaper, more dependable offerings.

Notebookcheck‘s review Edit

The Chinese manufacturer Huawei is launching increasingly more tablets and smartphones on the market. Huawei expands its portfolio with the MediaPad 10 and now offers a 10 inch device after two existing 7 inch tablets. The design department does not take new approaches in looks. A silver back cover comprised of aluminum is not unusual among other manufacturers. It looks different with the hardware: Huawei does not use universally known hardware like, for example, a SoC from Nvidia and installs still fairly unknown components. The processor comes from HiSilicon, which is a subsidiary. Not everyone will know the GPU either: the Vivante GC4000, a "16 core GPU". Nor are Full HD screens often seen in tablets at present. Thus, it is all the more enjoyable to watch a high definition movie on the rich-color IPS screen. All in all, the MediaPad makes a good impression. However, compromises have to be made. The performance in the benchmarks and in 3D games is unsatisfactory. Asus' Transformer Pad Infinity does not have to struggle with such performance bottlenecks.

SlashGear‘s review Edit

This device is a rather nice addition to the Android tablet universe, and certainly offers up a unique option where otherwise you’d be handling either a Samsung tablet or going over to Apple for an iPad. If you’re thinking about grabbing the highest quality Android tablet on the market today, I would still personally point you toward the Galaxy Note 10.1 simply due to its much more well-rounded ecosystem and matured device family.If on the other hand you want to take a fresh look at the Android tablet and don’t mind that your device looks strikingly similar to an original Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Huawei is here to back you up. The speaker system is strong, the display is fairly nice, and you’ll definitely be the only one on your block with this tablet, guaranteed. The cost of this device for anyone outside of China will certainly be prohibitive at $600 USD or more, on the other hand, so unless you can get this machine for next-to-nothing, you’ll be better off skipping it and waiting for Huawei to present a more complete package – and a wider release, to boot.
