Huawei MediaPad M1 8.0 LTE review

Our editors have already visited the Huawei MediaPad 10 Link+ tablets with a 10-inch screen diagonal and the more advanced and premium MediaPad X1 with a 7-inch screen diagonal. The device that we will be reviewing today is an intermediate solution: unlike the X1 and Link +, the M1 display diagonal is 8 inches, they are in different weight categories, the M1 camera is 5 MP (the X1 has 13 MP, and the Link has 3.2 MP). There are other small differences, but the chipsets of the devices are the same, Huawei's own development - HiSilicon Balong V9R1.

To immediately determine the prices, it is worth saying that the most expensive is the MediaPad X1. Now it can be found for 16,000 rubles, a little cheaper - MediaPad 10 link +, on the official website it is easy to buy for 14,000 rubles. The M1 8.0 tablet is currently available at a price of 12,000 rubles. All versions of devices can work with fourth generation networks.

Design, dimensions, controls

The appearance of the MediaPad M1 resembles the HTC One M7 smartphone. The speakers and front cameras are located in the same way, the two inserts on the top and bottom are approximately the same, the shape of the case is similar. In general, as always - nothing new and interesting, although quite nice .

The device has the following dimensions - 214x121x7.9 mm, weighs 329 grams, that is, typical dimensions and weight for an 8-inch device. The only thing that pleases is the thickness. The bezels on the right and left allow you to comfortably hold the M1 (upright) with one hand. The small width of the device allows you to even wrap your hand around the case.

The screen is protected by glass. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not specify what kind of material is used. For a month of active use, not a single scratch remained on the display. There is probably an oleophobic coating, since there are practically no fingerprints on the surface, and those that do appear are easily erased. The finger slides poorly on the screen, I consider this a disadvantage.

A thin bezel is made of semi-gloss white plastic around the perimeter of the case and the area where the speakers are located. The edging is a semi-gloss plastic painted in silver. Part of the back panel is made of metal. Oddly enough, during testing, there were no scratches or scuffs on the surface. Top and bottom - white plastic inserts. During the "yuzanya", most likely, they will slowly wear off, especially on the sides.

The device has only one removable element - a small panel that provides access to the microSIM and microSD slots.

Its fastenings are somewhat unsuccessful, because after the third or fourth time the panel is removed, it can break a little to the right of the micro-USB.

On the front panel at the top right are light and proximity sensors, a front camera and an indicator of missed events. To their left is a speakerphone and a speech speaker, although I'm not sure if there are two of them. The speech speaker has a low volume, excellent intelligibility, the interlocutor is heard clearly. Below is another hands-free speaker.

At the bottom are micro-USB and a microphone. Due to the remoteness of the microphone from the mouth (after all, 7-8 cm), you can be heard quietly, you have to speak louder. In my opinion, the electro-acoustic device should have been placed near the lower speaker.
