    This is advertised as a 2K tablet with a display of 2560×1600 boasting 480xxhdpi. WARNING: This does not play anything on #YouTube higher than 1080p. #Huawei blame #YouTube and #YouTube blame #Huawei. I predict 80% of the vast majority of consumers who purchase this tablet will want to play 2K in #YouTube #Amazon #Netflix #Hulu etc. Contacting #Huawei Technical Support will be a waste of time as the only advice given will be to Open your tablet Web Browser Chrome, FireFox, etc and Search for and download a 2K Movie trailer. How many consumers purchased this tablet exclusively to manually download Movie Trailers in 2K to watch? Unfortunately consumers will be ultimately disappointed by this and will most likely return their devices for a refund. Just take a look at Amazon Reviews and alike to see a reflection of this.

    I have the m5 8.4 and this is what i think of it. To many bloatware. Battery is to small. Tablet is quit thin. No accessory's for the 8.4 inch for sale in europe netherlands like screenprotectors, covers,tpu sillicon , on off switch and volume button are on the wrong site when using it horizontal. Canot remove anoying swifkey. Had to put on a classic keyboard app , just to get the nice size keys.. Big camera sticking out of the body. Very High price 350 euro.

    Lol, no headphone jack, makes this tablet totally useless to me, I lothe blue tooth audio gear, I wouldn't buy it even if it was 100 times more powerful, had better graphics etc. This not just an opinion, having to charge your headphones is a big hassle.:

    Great review. 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, Ipad, or Asus Zenpad 3S. Thanks again.

    I have one of these and I have to say it's a beautiful tablet. It's just a shame that Android do not offer tablet based apps like Apple. For example The Times newspaper app for IOS is superb. For Android it is worse than useless and in fact the app won't even load on the M5. Ditto Paypal, again won't even load on an M5 – says "device not compatible." Still wouldn't stop me keeping it, just annoying.
