Huawei MediaPad M2 10 is a new Android tablet that will likely catch your attention not only because of its size, but also because of the features it offers. The 10-incher sports a premium, slim design while offering a Full HD+ display with stylus support, reliable-looking snappers, an octa-core processor and Harman Kardon speakers.
Design and Display
In terms of design, the MediaPad M2 10 appears to have it with a metallic unibody featuring non-conducive vacuum coating. This one should feel very good in your hands with its sand-blasted metal finish.
Huawei MediaPad M2 10 is awesomely slim at 7.35 millimetres, tapering to just 5 millimetres at its thinnest point.
The slate crams in a massive 10.1-inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, translating into a pixel density of about 224 ppi.
Given this is an IPS panel, you should expect decent wide-angle viewing when watching movies or gaming. It supports stylus use, so you can write and draw on it easily.
Camera and Storage
It is somewhat inappropriate to consider tablets, especially one this big, as the ideal devices for capturing images. Nevertheless, Huawei MediaPad M2 10 has been fitted with an impressive pair of cameras – a 13-megapixel rear sensor and a 5-megapixel front sensor.
Those shooters are just what you will find on a good number of smartphones in the same price range as this slate, which will be available in 16GB and 64GB storage variants. The microSD card slot can take up to a 128GB card.
Performance and OS
Powerful performance appears to be on the card here with Huawei’s own octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 processor – the same one used on the flagship P8 smartphone – seeing to all the heavy lifting.
The robust CPU is paired with 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM and an ARM Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. Huawei MediaPad M2 10 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, overlaid with its maker’s Emotion UI 3.1 user interface, for smooth usage.
Rich sound is pumped out by four Harman Kardon speakers, two of which handles treble while the other two takes care of bass. Sound quality is enhanced by a dedicated amplifier with SWS 2.0 Surround Sound and Clari-fi Audio Restoration.
Pricing and Availability
Huawei MediaPad M2 10 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Huawei MediaPad M2 10 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N69,500 to N110,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
