The Huawei MediaPad M1 is a good model with attractive specifications. However, it fails to stand out from the crowd with any form of excellence. Instead it simply provides standard features that all other modern tablets offer.
The usual features are inclusive, such as the standard 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and a 5 Megapixel integrated camera. You may be disappointed with the lackluster 1GB of memory and a mere 8 inch screen size for viewing. As tablets go, this one fails to impress on any level.
Still, the MediaPad does come in a range of pretty colors such as Lily, Tulip and Carnation, wait, are those even colors? A Titanium Gray color offers a metallic look. This flowery tablet looks appealing and is ultra slim and lightweight. Other than the 1.6 GHz quad core processor, it has little else to offer. The battery is a low grade 4800 mAH polymer with poor output and handling, it will struggle to last 8 hours between charges.
At a suggested retail price of $550, the Huawei MediaPad M1 seems very expensive for the meager features and specifications available and I expected something better. If all you want to do on your tablet is office tasks or play Facebook games this is a reasonable tablet choice but there are more affordable tablet solutions for that than the Huawei MediaPad M1
