A premium Android tablet that gives the Apple iPad Mini 4 a run for its money
No this is not the iPad mini.
This is the Huawei Media Pad M3.
Well it kind of looks like the iPad mini 4 the eight inch tablet has one thing the iPad doesn't.
Well two things technically.
Harmon carbon speakers.
Tablets aren't known for their speaker quality, so it's refreshing to see a tablet that takes audio a little more seriously.
Dialogue during movies and vocals in songs sound crisp and clean.
However, as to be expected, bass is lacking.
Performance-wise it's one of the fastest android tablets I've seen lately, and one of the only ones that has a fingerprint scanner.
The tablet comes in wi-fi only and LPE capable models.
Full US pricing hasn't been announced, but the Huawei MediaPad M3 is expected to start at $299.
That makes it slightly cheaper than the iPad mini 4, which starts at $399.
If you're interested in the premium Android alternative to the iPad, the Huawei tablet is the great choice.
