Huawei MatePad 10.4 Unboxing & M Pencil Fail

by birtanpublished on October 30, 2020

With the huawei made pair 10-point for a release quite an interesting Android tablet running Android 10 and you can use it with the M pencil I manager for my next epic um and this is my unboxing and hands on with the mate pad ten point four and the in pencil though there's a small problem we will get to that now before we started don't forget to subscribe to this YouTube channel and hits a bell icon so that you get notified once a new video goes live I'm really reviewing pretty much every tablet that gets released almost worldwide alright let's start unboxing of the huawei mate pet 10.4 it's

Available in Germany where I am right now and it cost three hundred and nineteen euros that sort of version was about of RAM and the 64 gigabyte internal storage that's also a version with three gigabyte and 32 gigabyte but that one is not available yet so I don't know how much it will cost well inside the box we have said tablet first of course it makes a pretty good first impression and then we've got this sim eject tool or the SD card eject to it and then we have use PC to audio adapter that's quite nice it means I guess that's a tab it does not have a

Headphone jack but most manufacturers don't include such an adapter so it's nice to see then we gets a Quick Start Guide and who grunty stuff and then there's a standard to use DC cable and then the charge of course and that's what we get nothing else is inside the box as usual a couple of hours has passed already since I shot the first part of this video about a normal working day I would say and yeah so I can tell you a bit more about the tablet I already installed and ruined some benchmarks played some games and just played with it a bit so let's go on once

A tablet first of all we are getting quite a nice design here at the beginning I thought that it would have a metal deck but I think now it's more plastic but we do get a metal frame and the blue quality overall is pretty good even though this might be plastic I think the bail quality is really nice we don't have any weird edges everything is nicely rounded and it just feels like nice tablet in your hands relatively high end now it is about seven millimeters thin a little bit over seven millimeters and it weighs 450 grams I believe roughly 450 grams so those are

Pretty standard for this price range and for a normally 10 inch tablet these days now we don't have any fingerprint scanner or so no buttons but relatively small thin black desert surrounds the screen the screen is ten point four inches above the screen we get an 8 megapixel front-facing camera and that can be used to unlock the tablet using facial recognition let me quickly show you how it works it seems to work pretty good at least and good alight obviously there's no additional sensor so it's not as secure as if its face at E or so because it really is just using the

Webcam on the sides we get a volume rocker here and then there are a couple of microphones then we get two speakers here and then there's a USB C 2.0 port that means you can connect external hardware and so on but you cannot connect external monitors on the side we've got a micro SD card slot and if you can see LTE version that's not available here at the moment then I'm sure you can put a sim card away as we're on this side we get a power button here and then another two speakers so in total this tablet has four speakers and they're already played some games and

Listen to YouTube and the sound quality is really good especially for this price I like that at around 300 you was very getting forced because because usually you've got to pay a lot more for an at-at pearl or for the Samsung Galaxy Tab s 6 or the Galaxy Tab s 5e so yeah I really like that Wow a is giving us four speakers here now on the back we get another camera with a 10 megapixels and then there's a flashlight and then there's something eyes I believe this is just a microphone I'm not sure about publish of the microphone no further sensor should be in here okay

Let's check out that there's greens as a ten point for him screen with a resolution of 2,560 the tones a bit weird right ten point four inches and that we solution we first that before it's pretty much the same screen that we got with the Samsung Galaxy Tab s 6 light and I will compare them in another video but I'm guessing that so screams really are the same because yeah those things 1024 inches and 2,000 by 1200 I really unusual probably the screen is probably made by Samsung to but that's just a guess it is an LCD screen of course and

The viewing angles are pretty decent looks pretty good saturation is pretty good as well as same goes for contrast of course this is not a Super AMOLED screen was that we saturated colors and it have a high contrast and so on but I think it's a pretty decent LCD screen and nothing to complain about I always think that on 10 inches a full HD resolution that's pretty much what we're getting here I always think that's fine text and so on look sharp enough sure not like your smart phone but certainly sharp enough I really think Full HD is fine

Now one highlight of the mate pad that Huawei is advertising is the EM pencil support before I bought is this M pencil I checked it in the product page where I bought while we tablet and it says it does support C intensive but this M pencil does not work this one was released for the huawei mate pet pro both pens are called and pencil and in fact both pens seem to be exactly the same it should work with this tablet but there's one thing that's not included here and that is a little charging pad for the M pen sir you connect that charging pad to the tablet apparently

And then those two devices get paired up and then you can use the same pen sir but at the moment while we is not selling the M pencil set that's what apparently it might be called so I can test the M pencil right now we see mate pad pro there's a duct of charging thing on the top of the tablet just like we know from the iPad pro where this M tensor will then work and connect automatically but with the made patent point for this same pen should work but you need a way to connect it first and it's not included in the box of this and ten sir now that's of course a downside

Because I already read a couple of comments and other YouTube videos and several people like I did both see and pensive thinking that it should work because that's what's advertised but it really has to be the while we're in fencer set with the charging pet so I can test the pen right now but maybe in the future for my final review I hope I will be able to review it that's really not ideal of course it's a bit misleading because if you get some Microsoft Surface pen for example no matter which one even if it's a surface slim pen it always works with every

Surface tablet same with Samsung's s tense wow it has a couple of different pens and offering similar leopards are really not ideal in this regard but well I can test the pen right now inside see why we made Pat ten point fourths it's aqumarine 810 processor that's a ship made by Huawei themself we also get three to four gigabytes of RAM and a 32 gigabyte or 64 gigabyte internal storage at cut subversion with 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 the apart internal storage you can see my geek bench for comparison here and the results are quite impressive

Especially at this price adjust it's below the Samsung Galaxy Tab s 6 and it sits in this benchmark a bit higher than other mid-range Android tablets higher than most of them well benchmarks are one thing of course and this is just one benchmark for my final review I will have others but I already played as fired 901 very smoothly it does not look perfectly and sometimes the edges are a little bit pixelated so I've seen it run better on other tablets but it performs pretty but I also played free fire which is a little shooter game and it looks really nice on this tablet once re

Smoothly I was able to set the graphics very high so yeah that game runs very well on this tablet I also try to install fortnight and you can install the epic games app but it says that for that is not supported by this device so you cannot play format on this tablet now let's check out this software of the make that ten point four it is one again but of course I'm sure you've guessed that already and it is running Android ten in fact it is one of very few tablets at our running end were ten at the moment so it's certainly nice to see that we're getting and were 10 and on

Top of em were 10 is sitting the emotion UI in version 10 that's the interface from Huawei basically it hasn't changed in the last five years or so so if you owned a phone or a tablet from our way in the past then you will feel right at home basically the same apps you get all the special tools here and so on they've got stuff like WPS offers pre-installed it has been the case for a couple of years already and yam there's the one thing that you might be missing and that our Google Apps there's no good place don't no YouTube no gmail no Chrome no Google Hangouts and you get

The idea all Google Apps I'm missing by default I'm sure you've heard of seen us-china trade war and the embargo that was placed against wale so yeah we don't get any Google Apps here that's a huge downside instead you get the Huawei app gallery and from that app gallery you can install many apps quite a lot of games there are even some local German news apps there's snapchatters tick tock there is purifier as 5/9 I was even able to install Microsoft Office that just the standard offer that that's quite a new you can open Word documents with it and Excel and PowerPoint and so on and

Many apps amazing you can't find I couldn't find Netflix in the app gallery there's no Facebook no whatsapp no caption mobile no call of duty no Instagram no Adobe Lightroom all these apps are missing so you can find many apps inside the app gallery but really not all and I'm sure that there will be some that you usually use but can't find at least that was the case with me and on top of that list I hear google apps of course now you can see here Google Chrome but I haven't thought that myself same with Geekbench for both of these apps are not inside the app gallery now

You can install chrome and other apps by installing and case that you find online you just put in the app and then apk on Google and then you can usually find the website that is hosting the apk then you can download it and install it and you probably will be able to install the Google Play Store and they will be doing that for my final review but here you're just never sure if there's some hidden somewhere Google as for example clearly saying that they are not recommending that you do that now I didn't sell Chrome and it does work and performs

Fine and when I'm getting an Android tablet I want those google apps maybe I will be able to live without Chrome but I certainly want to use YouTube now you can really use many things from the App Gallery like here we go it's a Maps app and they said this is a local German news apps as office by the way there are some status apps pre-installed that make no sense without the pen right now but they are pre-installed they work quite nicely Houston in the past now if you want to you can just open the browser type in youtube.com and then you can

Search for example for my next tablet and then you can hit enter and then you can see some ads but you can also click on my channel and then watch a video that works inside the browser of course you don't have to use the YouTube app for that it works in the browser and it's fine but of course the experience is not as amazing as it is with the YouTube app which is just more convenient so I think for normal consumers I can't recommend this tablet because of that usually you want to have so Google Play Store and it's then a consumer who is not a geek

Who's not into downloading epic aids from the internet who doesn't even know how to do that or that it's possible yeah I just can't recommend it I wouldn't recommend it for my parents or so by the way there's one interesting software feature that I found you can navigate through n-word here through the motion iris gestures you can close an app like this and you can then go to the recent apps view like this vishesh shows works pretty well and then what I found out what's new with this tablet is that you can hit this icon here and then the app gets opened in a free-floating

Window that's certainly nice we've seen this before this design looks quite similar to ever but we've seen as something similar from Samsung you can open apps and free floating windows there too and here you can even open two apps at the same time this way like here I've got a Chrome and then the wild web browser and if I want to open them side-by-side I believe I have to long press here and I can do this and then I can open the 12th side-by-side so that's certainly a quite interesting and maybe for some very useful feature

All right that's my hands-on of this Wow I met a ten point four so far I really have to start my proper will view now I have to use it more play some more games work with it a bit and just replace my daily tablet with it I will install the Google Play Store or at least the Google Apps and then see how this tablet performs and in a couple of weeks now my first impressions are twofold of course on the one hand the tablet makes a really good impression I like the Bell quality I like the screen the performance seems pretty good very good actually at this price point I

Also like that we're getting four speakers the software seems to be pretty good as well except of course for the Google Play Store and the Google services that are not pre-installed that's really a downside and the reason why I will not recommend it this tablet to a normal consumer if you're a geek like I am and you're fine with getting apps from the internet and maybe and so on so Google Play so and so on if you're fine to do that yourself then sure you can check out this tablet but was a normal consumer I really won't be able to recommend this tablet it's just too

Complicated and just not a great experience if you can get some other tablets which you can one direct competitor is the Samsung Galaxy Tab it's six light it costs a bit more but with that one the status is included and if you're getting the impends or two then the price is about the same the same by the way goes for the at the iPad 7 which caused quite similar if you include that the tensor even maybe it's a little bit more but not too much now the only major differentiator I would say is that you can get a tablet you was four speakers and an optional stylus

We haven't seen that in this price range the iPad has that speaker so relatively and the Galaxy Tab s 6ly to don't have two speakers the Galaxy Tab s type II has four speakers but no pen that's the only thing that makes this tablet special as far as I can find all right yes you've heard my first impressions great tablet but no Google Play Store that's disappointing all right that's my unboxing and first impressions of Zhi hua way mate pair 10.4 if you've any questions write them down below and also write me if you are considering to buy this tablet and why

You might want to get it i'm enje for my next edicom thanks for watching and see you next time
