The Huawei MediaPad M1 was first launched in 2014 with the hope to jumpstart the company’s market presence in the tablet business. One of the most prominent points of strength of this mid-range tablet is the firmly set sights on thh 4G version of Google’s Nexus 7 in terms of the Category4 LTE modem used to give the tablet a healthy speed boost in downloading and also mentioning the expansive file format support the table offers to consumers. Under the right circumstances, you are able to download a full-length movie in less than 30 seconds, with the assumption that you have a 4G Internet connection contract.
Coming in with color choices of white or gray, the Huawei MediaPad M1 stays comfortably in the mid-range class of tablets while being one of the most affordable tablets you can find in the market. With the 8-inch 1280x800 display, you are able to enjoy your media selections in a nice and comfortable screen with a not-too-vibrant feeling. The MediaPad M1 comes equipped with a 1.6Hz quad-core processor and although it runs on a surprisingly low RAM of 768MB, the battery compensates the lack of RAM power by being able to last 150 hours of music playback and 8 full-length movies back to back. There is also the audio that deserves a commendable mention here in means of the Huawei Super Wide sound that utilizes sound chambers to improve sound quality. This hardware also comes equipped with an essential set of DSP pre-sets to tweak the audio output. Also, the fact that the speakers are forward-facing gives an advantage edge over rear-or-side speakers. Another prominent feature of the Huawei MediaPad M1 is the overhaul of the whole UI of the device. Dropping the app drawer completely to make way for you to be able to place your installed applications across multiple home screens, the Emotion user interface stroke a nerve with the accepted norm of having an app drawer with other tablets and smartphones. Though some would deem it to be clustered, looking at it deeper will result in the fact that it is highly customizable. Furthermore, it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean so you can customize your home screens to your heart’s content.
Should You Own It?
If you like a multimedia tablet that supports over 20 file formats across video and music, a microSD card expansion for extra storage capacity, enhanced audio output, and a decently large screen to be able to view your selected media with comfort, then the Huawei MediaPad M1 is the perfect fit for you.
