Editor Rating

Huawei MatePad 10.8 is a cheap and reliable tablet offering from the brand, which is meant to be an everyday use tablet for people at home and school. It features a nice and responsive display that is surrounded by tiny bezels on all sides. These bezels host the quad-speaker array that has been tuned by Harman Kardon. The design of the tablet is simple and sleek, with a simple matte finish for the rear panel, which is rounded off at the edges to make it easier to hold. You do get a single camera array on either side, with the back camera hosted in a long and slim pill-like module and the front sensor hosted in a corner cutout that is easy to avoid.


Bottom Line

Huawei MatePad 10.8 is a relatively affordable multimedia tablet from the brand, which features a nice and responsive display, and a large battery to power it. Even the processor is pretty fast and can handle anything you throw at it. The only problem remains the camera setup, which is pretty basic.
