Huawei MediaPad M5 10 Review: The Best Android Tablet In 2018?

Written review:

As you can see in my Huawei MediaPad M5 10 review, it is one of the best Android tablets available. Its highlights are a premium body, a fast Kirin 960s processor, a high-resolution 10.8-inch screen and a great battery life. However, the MediaPad M5 10 is lacking a standard headphone jack. And the EMUI 8.0 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo is heavily customized.

Well, what do you think of the Huawei MediaPad M5 10? Is it the best tablet of the year?

    Well I've used this tablet for about a month now, it sure isn't no iPad. My iPad was 4 years old with less specs and will blow this out of the water. Only thing this is good for is sound and movies, Bluetooth is kinda spazy.

    Is using an adapter to plug in headphones just as good as using a dedicated headphone jack? I'm just trying to work whether I should buy the Mediapad M5 10 or the M5 Lite 10.

    It's definitely one of the best android tablets of 2018, especially considering it's price. The Samsung TAB S4 is more powerful, but for more than 150% the price, no thanks. And the sound from this "little" thing is unmatchable in the world of tablets. It rivals laptops with above average quality speakers.

    Everyone must be getting something from Amazon but not only are they not the cheapest but the refund policy may make you lose everything! Dead on arrival or in pieces! Forget it

    No headphone jack.
    This product will never be bought by me.
    Why is this a trend in electronics, I really don't want this to be an issue when I go to buy a laptop, phone, tablet, or build a PC in the future.

    Hey, a little update: Huawei released an update which fixes the Netflix problem. You can watch Netflix in HD or FullHD now. However, if you tried Netflix before the update, you might have to reset the tablet before it works. That's what I had to do with the MediaPad M5 8.

    Nice review, please help. I've bought Asus transformer 3 t305ca 8-256 gb core m3 proc. Before that I was using Tab S2 9.7(didn't like 6.5 hour battery life). Windows 10 feels very complicated for now and its hard operaring by hands only. I can return Asus to the shop on this weekend and return money. I'm thinking to buy Tab s3 now, the price is ok and Huawei m5 is not avalible here yet. I understand that everyones type of using the tablet differs but what is better overall for media consumption and what would you choose?
