Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite: Android Tablets still a thing in 2019?! [Impressions]

by birtanpublished on May 12, 2021

hey it's how I could've Android Central this is a quick first look at the Huawei media pad m5 light so Android tablets are still a thing and Huawei is one of a handful of brands still putting out traditional big-screen slates running Oreo as the name suggests it's designed to be first and foremost a device for media consumption like all the other media paths but there are also a couple of family centric features that are pretty interesting first of all this thing looks a lot like the previous gen a media pad m3 devices with a brushed aluminium body chamfered edges and 2.5 D

Glass on the front the displays a 10.1 inch full HD panel a little smaller than the last gen media pad but it does boast Huawei snuke I review 5.0 display technology for improved colors and contrast it's also got a quad speaker setup tuned by Harman Kardon and in our brief time juggling between a few YouTube videos everything looked and sounded pretty good on the inside this thing isn't gonna blow anyone away with its specs it's running a karin 659 processor a mid-range chip at best with three gigs of ram and 32 gigs of storage and that means you potentially limited

In terms of background apps and how much stuff you can actually store locally based on wall waste numbers you're looking at a decent 13 hours of full HD video playback from the battery which is a decent number though it's not clear if I'd include streaming or just local playback one surprising bonus though the new media pad does ship with huawei's M pen light stylus which has 2048 layers of sensitivity and a solid metal construction pointing and writing with the built-in note-taking app felt pretty natural and smooth biggest disappointment here is probably the

Software barely anything has changed in the software from the media pad m3 series it's the same Android 8.0 Oreo build running here not even the newer 8.1 maybe that's not too surprising it's not clear at this stage if there even is a tablet version of the new Android 9 pie but in any case this is 99% just a blown up phone interface and you don't even benefit from the enhanced multitasking or window features of Oreo running on something like the Google pixel C and because it's huawei's emui version 8 it looks ok but it's not particularly

Pretty all well animated the major new feature is the Kidspace app gives you access to a few built-in apps designed for kids while also letting parents whitelist some other apps for them to use as you'd expect there also parental controls built in around screen time as well it also ties into the built-in fingerprint scanner for unlocking either two kids space directly or into the main UI but here's the thing this is an Android tablet with old software without any of the benefits of stock Android tablet software for two hundred and

Ninety-nine dollars that's only thirty bucks shy of the nine point seven inch iPad and given the state of Android tablet app support so I have a hard time recommending this without a pretty serious price cut like so many other Huawei products the devil is in those software details that's not all Huawei's fault of course but until Google has a clearer tablet strategy devices like the media pad m5 light a left with software that's far from ideal for 2019 that's it for now stains huge and subscribe for other hopefully better things from CES 2019 here in Las Vegas thanks for

Watching and I'll see you next time you
