Fast CPU, a decent display and great battery runtimes

from Notebookcheck

The MediaPad M1 8.0 is a good 8-inch tablet with phenomenal battery life. Unfortunately, the UI never remains entirely lag-free despite of a rather powerful SoC, and Android 4.2.2 is slightly outdated, making it impossible e.g. to use Android Wear with the tablet.

Apart from these issues, Huawei has managed to manufacture a decent couch and multimedia tablet. Some compromises have been made in terms of audio quality and outdoor readability, with the latter being more of an oddity - and more of a nuisance - when thinking about the optionally available LTE variant.
