Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro review: A good show, just not quite 'pro'

 

The MediaPad M5 Pro is a tablet that promises a lot, but doesn't quite deliver on its name. Speaker and button placement is odd, while watching

A nice looking and solid design ; Screen is big and colourful ; Generally smooth performance ; Included stylus is a nice touch ; Undercuts iPad Pro price point

Video apps streaming quality is bad ; Touch unresponsive at times ; Poor placement of buttons and speakers ; Touch-sensitive layer (for stylus) makes screen slightly fuzzy

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro 10.8 review

 

All the write stuff

Smooth design ; Neat included stylus ; Great speakers

Not the brightest screen in its class ; No headphone jack

This tablet may not bury the iPad Pro, but it gets you similar skills for hundreds of pounds less.

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro Review: A premium Android rival to Apple’s iPad Pro

 

Huawei's MediaPad M5 Pro is a 10.8-inch tablet which offers gorgeous visuals, combined with the M-Pen stylus and an optional keyboard cover - so creative users and mobile professionals have an alternative option to Apple's iPad Pro.

Bundled stylus ; Sharp, attractive display ; Decent battery life

Older Kirin chipset ; Keyboard dock sold separately ; Awkward power/volume buttons

If you’re after an iPad Pro-style device which runs Android instead, the MediaPad M5 Pro ticks most of those boxes and adds a few advantages of its own. You get the same neat keyboard cover and stylus pen setup, with the added bonus that the pen is...

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro (10.8in) review: The elegant tablet, wannabe laptop that rivals the iPad Pro

 

At around £500, it isn't cheap, but with 4G connectivity, a stylus and stunning design, it offers good value for money

Excellent speakers ; Optional 4G and Wi-Fi connectivity ; Blistering fingerprint scanner

No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Expensive ; Doesn’t replace a Windows 10 PC

It might not replace a Windows 10 2-in-1 and lags behind the 10.5in iPad Pro for apps and general performance, too, but it’s cheaper than the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and competitive in terms of its performance and features. If you like the...

Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro

 

With the Galaxy Book and iPad Pro in its sights, the MediaPad M5 Pro is Huawei's latest attempt to woo creatives with a high-end Android tablet. But can Android ever match Windows 10 or iOS for professional users? Here's our review.

Huawei Mediapad M5 10.8 Pro review

  (Rating Hidden)

The cream of the crop of Huawei's latest Mediapad M5 range, the M5 10.8 Pro is in essence the standard M5 10.8 with one difference - a stylus is thrown in. Pitched as a premium tablet for those looking to work as well as play (backed up by an optional...

Huawei Mediapad M5

 

Huawei's Mediapad M5 could be the Android tablet to face down the $329 iPad—if the price is right.

Sharp, bright screen. Powerful audio. Fast LTE.

Pricier than the iPad, which is the product by which all other non-Windows tablets are measured.

Bottom Line: Huawei's Mediapad M5 could have been the product to face down the $329 iPad, but the larger model costs at least $70 more.

Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8 Pro Tablet Review

 

Refined version. Even faster, LTE by default and with an included digital stylus: The Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8 Pro is the "tuned" sister model of the excellent MediaPad M5 10.8. In our review, we determine whether the tablet can achieve similarly...

high-quality workmanship ; LTE Cat.6 ; 64 GB storage ; 4 speakers ; Android 8.0 ; high resolution display ; good camera ; very fast ; digital stylus ; stays cool during use ; solid battery life ; quick charging

no 3.5 mm jack ; system takes up a lot of space ; Wi-Fi not particularly fast ; preinstalled bloatware ; USB 3.0 port with USB 2.0 speeds ; weak display luminance ; throttling under load

High resolution 2K display, 4 Harman Kardon speakers, a good camera, solid battery life and quick charging - the MediaPad M5 10.8 Pro essentially shares all of the MediaPad M5 10.8's virtues. On top of that, it comes with three good extra features: The...
