Design & Build Quality

Once you unbox the Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 you’ll immediately recognize that this is a Huawei tablet. Its design looks very similar to lớn previous tablets from them. While there is nothing too special about the design, it does look quite nice. In fact, I lượt thích it a bit more than the designs from most similar tablets. You can get it in space gray, gold, & white.

The build quality is not as good as the one from the 8.4-inch Huawei MediaPad M3 (review) but it is still good. While the body toàn thân is not made out of one single block of aluminum, we are getting a nice metal frame. There is a small gap between the frame & back but that’s very common with devices in this price range.

Over all, the design and build chất lượng are good. It sits nicely in your hands without feeling uncomfortable at all. At the same time, it’s relatively thin at 7.1 millimeters.

Fingerprint Reader, Ports, Speakers


Around the 10.1-inch screen is a đen bezel. There’s an 8-megapixel front facing camera above the display và underneath is a fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader works as good as the ones from Huawei’s smartphones. You can unlock the tablet fast và easily. One of my favorite features is the build in gesture support. Once activated in the settings, you can use gestures on the fingerprint sensor to replace the home, back & recent button.

Like I mentioned in the beginning, there are four speakers in total. On the top và bottom are two speakers each. As you might expect at this price point, the speakers are not the best in the world, but very good in this class. The sound chất lượng is similar khổng lồ the 2017 máy tính bảng ipad (review) & noticeably better than the ones from the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus.

Even though we are living in the year 2017, there is still no USB type C port. Instead, Huawei is still using the older micro USB 2.0 connector. You can use it to charge it or lớn connect accessories like USB sticks with an adapter. Above the port is a microSD thẻ slot. If you’re getting the 4G version, then there’s the SIM thẻ slot as well.

On the exact opposite site are a nguồn button and the volume controls. All the way on the đứng top is a standard 3.5-millimeter audio jack.

There’s an 8-megapixel camera on the back. So, the front & back facing cameras have the same resolution. They’re not outstanding at all but certainly fine for snapshots. The front camera is also very usable for clip chats using Skype or other apps.



The Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 has a 10.1-inch display. It’s an IPS panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1200. Since it is a 10-inch screen, I think a full HD resolution is enough. Yes, you probably have a điện thoại cảm ứng thông minh with a higher pixel density. But it’s still fine, most people won’t notice a real difference.

Actually, I really like the display. It looks very nice, has wide viewing angles and colors look accurate and saturated. Pictures và videos look very nice on this display, better than on some other alternatives. There is one downside though. It is not the brightest screen out there.

I used the tablet quite a bit outside & in direct sunlight, the brightness is high enough if you’ve got a bright background like in Microsofts Word. Otherwise, the screen transforms itself into a mirror. Well, it’s not too bad, but it could be a bit brighter.

Hardware và Performance

Let’s take a closer look at the internal hardware and the performance. Inside the MediaPad M3 Lite 10 runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC. While this is an octa-core chip, those eight cores are clocked at 1.4GHz only. My version has 3GB of RAM và 32GB of internal storage. The storage options vary a bit by country though.

The Snapdragon 435 is a lower middle-class chip. As you might expect, the performance is not the best. I was able to play games lượt thích Asphalt Xtreme và Combat Squad very nicely but I had to lớn turn down the graphic settings a bit. Otherwise, you might see some frame drops. I was also able to install Modern Combat 5 và GTA Vice City. But, for some reason, both games crash immediately after starting them. That’s not good.

As you might have guessed, I wouldn’t recommend the MediaPad M3 Lite 10 as a gaming tablet. The benchmarks show that as well. In Geekbench 4 the tablet gets 660 & 2850 points. With the AnTuTu test, it gets a result of 46840 points. Very similar priced tablets lượt thích the Huawei MediaPad M3 & Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus (review) get noticeably better results.

If you don’t want lớn play heavy games constantly, the performance is fine though. I didn’t have any issues at all when browsing the website or working with Word. In fact, even the split screen view runs very smooth. You can use two apps side by side without any problems. It’s also good for watching YouTube and Netflix. And, thanks khổng lồ its four speakers, that’s what this tablet is really for.

Android 7.0 Nougat & EMUI 5.1


On the MediaPad M3 Lite 10 runs app android 7.0 Nougat. On vị trí cao nhất of that runs the so called Emotion UI in version 5.1. That’s the own interface from Huawei. You’ll be very familiar with it if you have used a phone or tablet from them in the last couple of years.

The design of the Emotion UI is actually customized quite heavily. But, obviously, all the important game android core features are still there. One of them is the split screen view so that you can use two apps side by side. Huawei did support this feature for a long time already but it’s part of app android now.

As I said, the interface is customized quite heavily & you can even customize it yourself quite heavily. For example, when you’re starting the device for the first time, the phầm mềm drawer is missing. Instead, all apps are installed onto the home-screen directly. You can activate the tiện ích drawer in the settings though. In fact, you should go through the settings one by one because there is a lot to lớn customize.

There are a lot of apps preinstalled as well, maybe a bit too many. Huawei did include a lot of their own apps which you cannot remove. But there are the apps from Google và Microsoft preinstalled as well. Other preinstalled apps include Facebook, Instagram và Kids Corner.

Making phone calls

If you’re getting the LTE version of this tablet, then you will be able lớn make phone calls. There are standard phone & text messaging apps. In fact, it works just lượt thích with your Huawei phone. Since the tablet is quite big, it might be useful to lớn use a headset though.

By the way, GPS is supported as well.

Battery life

Let’s take a closer look at the battery life. Inside the MediaPad M3 Lite 10 is a battery with a capacity of 6600mah. In my battery test, I got a runtime of 10 hours và 45 minutes. I’m always doing the same battery tests by running an HD video clip at 50 percent brightness & with activated Wi-Fi.

Compared to the competition, 10 hours and 45 minutes are good, but certainly not the best either. There are a couple of similarly priced tablets with a bit better runtime. In my day lớn day use the battery was fine. But, it didn’t last as long as the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus.


I wrote down a kind of battery diary for a while. While doing that I got a total runtime of 18 hours. Out of those, I used the tablet actively for 7 hours. Since I’ve been using it with a keyboard, I had công nghệ bluetooth activated the whole time. The screen brightness varied between 50 & 100 percent. In those 7 hours, I used Chrome, worked with Microsoft Word & participated in a đoạn phim call using Skype. I also watched YouTube for a couple of hours.

It seems like the MediaPad M3 Lite 10 does not tư vấn any khung of quick charging. Similar khổng lồ Apples iPad, it takes a while until it is charged. I waited around 5 hours after the battery was dead khổng lồ have it fully charged again.

Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 review: Final verdict


So, what’s the final verdict of my Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite 10 review? Well, it is a good tablet. While I wouldn’t recommend it to lớn everybody, it can be perfect for some. I can’t recommend it if you plan to lớn play a lot of high-end games. It could have been an awesome tablet, but the performance is really not the best here.

But, it can be a very good choice if you’re looking for a tablet to lớn watch movies & TV shows. Maybe on the sofa, in bed or even in an airplane. Thanks to lớn its nice display videos look very nice và the sound unique is very good at this price as well. At the same time, the build chất lượng is good too.
