On paper, the MatePad Pro might appear to be a carbon copy of Apple's Ipad Pro. They are almost identical in terms of look, name and even the stylus. Having said so, this latest tablet from Huawei is not merely a "copycat". In fact MatePad Pro is in a league of its own by offering specs and features that are the best right now for non-iPadOS tablets. Yupe~that means currently even Samsung premium tablets are lagging behind in terms of features, specs and pricing.
The best tablet from Huawei
The MatePad Pro boasts a beautiful 10.8-inch IPS display which pushes a resolution of 2560x1600 with a pixel density of 280ppi. Likewise iPad Pro only churns out 264ppi which means the MatePro's display is better than that form Apple. Using MatePad Pro is definitely a visual pleasure as you can feast on its 90% screen-to-body-ratio display which blasts out DCI-P3 colour gamut. The maximum brightness of the screen can hit 540 nits which makes outdoor usage enjoyable as well.
For photography, there is a 13MP rear camera for you to snap photos and videos. Flip it to the front and you will be greeted by the 8MP selfie camera. Under the hood, the this top of the line tablet from Huawei is powered by their flagship 7nm Kirin 990 Processor which is complemented by 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Should you need more space, you can always expand it with Huawei's NM card. MatePad Pro has a huge 7250 mAh battery that charges via USB-C which supports 40W SuperCharge. If you choose to charge the tablet wirelessly, you will be happy to note that it can support 27W fast wireless charging which is very impressive. On top that you can also use the tablet as a powerbank to charge other compatible devices via its reverse wireless charging feature.
40W SuperCharge for a tablet is really, really FAST!
Of course you will be using MatePad Pro a lot for media consumption such as binge-watching Netflix series and playing mobile games; Hence you will appreciate the 4 Harmon Kardon speakers that will definitely elevate your audio experience, allowing you to immerse yourself while watching your favourite shows and shooting your enemies in the virtual world. There are also 5 microphones that offer noise reduction for far field sound detection. Gamers will rejoice knowing that MatePad Pro comes with 3D graphite heat dissipation technology to keep your tablet cool while you are playing games with your mates.
Immersive quad-speaker setting!
Tipping the scale at 492g with a thickness of 7.99mm, Huawei MatePad Pro comes with a complimentary free smart magnetic keyboard with 1.33mm key travel and 2 stand angles (60° or 70°). The other free accessory that you will be getting when you pre-order the tablet now is M-Pencil Stylus with 4,096 points of pressure sensitivity that supports tilt detection. Magically~It will magnetically sticks to the top of the MatePad Pro to be charged. So this innovation allows you to store your M-Pencil and charge it at the same time. Pretty ingenious I would say.
Multitasking is virtually effortless as well thanks to Huawei's App Multiplier. You can even launch a few "windows" of the same applications to let you stay even more productive, very much like how you would do so by using a Windows-powered computer. Another new feature is Huawei Share which can let you cast your Huawei smartphones to your tablet. Sounds like a nifty addition as you will need to be glued to smartphone while working on your tablet.
However there is one drawback that might make or break your decision whether to get this Huawei MatePad Pro or not. This tablet runs on the latest EMUI 10.1 which is based on Android 10, HOWEVER you will not have access to Google Mobile Services (GMS) such as GMail, Maps and Youtube just to name a few. Of course there are several unofficial ways to install Google Play Store and still use your favourite Google apps. So will you still get this MatePad Pro as a tablet for yourself? Personally I believe it is a value-for-money purchase as it is reasonably priced and boasts good specifications and awesome features.
