    Hands down one of the BEST reviews of this device. You answered so many of my questions (eg comparing the Kirin 960 chipset to that of the Snapdragon 820 – I couldn’t find that any where). Your review was thorough without being long winded and you stayed on topic. Thank you. Now I just need to decide if the 8” or the 10” is in my future.

    What is the point of a review listing specs? I would rather see you use it and hear your thoughts about it than what the specs are, since they can be found and more easily rear online.

    Hi. Have you had any more new updates since doing this video such as enhancements to battery life, performance, security updates, the newer EMUI 8.1 or 9.0? Screen quality good in terms of sharpness, clarity & resolution? Any dark or night mode? Have you tried a different launcher? Can it play YouTube in full 1080p 60fps and 4K 30/60fps? Would you say it can withstand the off splashes of water?

    Can someone tell me is this tablet have some software for turning off the half of each of its speakers? Because when holding it my hands would be exactly on the speakers. Its a big problem for the devise if not.

    Phones are may getting a bit larger with higher specs, but they are also coming with an extremely healthy price tag as well!.. I don't mind spending around $350 + – for a decent tablet to use for media consumption. And I don't have to pay for a premium phone plan either, just to make sure I don't run out of those precious minutes. I am likely the sort of market this type of tablet is aimed at, and I'm grateful it's there!

    Can you please call anything like this, that has phone functionality, a phablet. Makes things much clearer for the consumer, especially those who specifically seek biiiig phones."

    Great review, thanks a lot. I am going to buy a tablet and my main concern is screen quality and weight, as I use it as a pdf reader. While white balance of M5 can be adjusted, I read in other reviews that even after doing this, there will still be a some blue tint on the screen, which will be very annoying for reading pdf files. Also those reviews say that contrast ratio of M5 is not great, again very important for pdf readers. Could you help me with this concern, and also let me know which of these tablets you recommend as pdf reader: M5, Tab S3, or Asus Zenpad 3S. Thanks again.
