Software And Functions

It’s running Huawei’s Emotion 2.0 UI on top of Android. Visually, the UI softens things by giving its set of widgets a “flatter” and more boxy look. Going with the theme of emotion, the colorful presentation helps to breath in some refreshing scenery with its experience. Oh yeah, there’s also a “Simple UI” option that dumbs down the presentation tremendously by eliminating the typical homescreen, and replacing it with colorful looking tiles a la Windows Phone – though, they’re not dynamic ones, but statics ones instead.



Look And Screen

Right from the begin, the configuration of the Huawei Mediapad M1 helps us to remember the notorious outline connected to the HTC One. Sincerely, in the event that we're to place the prized cell phone right alongside it, some individuals would most likely concur that its a bigger estimated variant of HTC's leader cell phone from a year ago.

By and by, we feel as if that the configuration fits this mechanism's character – where its intend to in a flash stand out just enough to be noticed with its premium looking manifestation. On the outside, it offers a smooth aluminum form that tips the scale at a 329 grams, which is really great acknowledging that its a 8-inch tablet. Minimizing the bezel around the sides of its show, the Mediapad M1 feels more minimal than some other comparatively estimated 8-inch tablets.

Gazing profoundly into its 8-creep 800 x 1200 IPS show, we would've been more wowed in the event that it utilized a higher determination, yet paying little respect to that, we can't gripe either about what we're given. Parts are great, not stellar – something we sort of need with a somewhat superior to 720p determination. In any case, we're satisfied by the OK review plots, negligible contortion, and radiant color creation its equipped .

Processor and memory

Running a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, it seems to be an effective piece of silicon to handle most basic tasks. However, it lacks the snappiness that we’re accustomed to seeing with devices running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 SoC. For the intended target, the Huawei MediaPad M1 isn’t meant to be a high flying thing. Rather, its focus is on consumers who are on a budget and plan to do simple things.

Two storage options will be available with the device: 8GB or 16GB. Needless to say, it would’ve been nice to see it offering higher capacities, but it’s worth mentioning that it has a microSD card slot for expansion.


There’s hardly anything impressive with its set of cameras, since it packs a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing one. Frankly, the tally of them both are widely regarded as average, so at least users have the convenience of snapping up photos whenever the opportunity arises – albeit, don’t expect its quality to be anything phenomenal.

Price And Expectations

Huawei makes good low and mid-range devices, so it doesn’t shock us that the Huawei MediaPad M1 fits the bill. Certainly, the design of the tablet is sure to catch a few prying eyes. Cementing its worth in the field, the MediaPad M1 will sport a modest €299 ($411) pricing when it’s released in Europe, Russia, the Middle East, China, Japan, Asia Pacific, Australia and Latin America later on in Q1 2014.
